Honestly, thank god - if you're a serious gamer and you're still limping along on XP...well, you're NOT a serious gamer.

I look forward to your flaming replies. :D

Now Windows 7 is out and is pretty decent, there isn't much point hanging on to XP and it's 3gb of RAM limitations. However I can't see a 'serious' gamer giving a rat's ass about AC3.

Seriously, NO ONE should still be using XP. It's ancient and obsolete. I'm glad developers are giving XP the boot!

My conspiracy theory mind think it may be Microsoft "force" or "request" game developers (make it) not to support Windows XP. It is because most of the console games can port to dx9c. And i don't see this "console port to PC" game is any different.
