I'm posting a new thread on this because the two threads that I found with related info hadn't been touched in quite some time and no answers seemed to be forthcoming.

So my no.1 question for this game is will the PC version require the Vista OS or not?

I know MS is pushing its Games for Windows directive, but I'm hoping that great developers like Eidos aren't hardwiring it into their programming just yet. If someone could shoot out a confirmed answer on this, that'd be great. And if you happen to know the overall system req/recom those would be welcome as well.

Thanks!

It's gonna take a time for games to be vista only.
Some games already tried, and they don't sell.
Only 1/50 gamers got vista and directx10 ready gfx cards.
So it's pretty safe to say that games will run on xp for quite some time!
