Default Re: Wait, so will BioShock run or not?

The biggest thing you will need for this game is Shader Model 3.0 If your card doesn't have it it will not run. Also I'd like to add something for everybody buying the game don't go installing it on all your buddys computers because the key your given with the game will only activate 2 times. Then you won't be able to get it re activated.

Technically 40 FPS is considered playable, but most people don't really have a problem with 30.
