This is some investment into this company. I hope it will be worth while and i gather when these games get created we need to update our computers hardware drastically to get the full effect of the game.

Thats probably true borhan9.

However, they might focus more on console stuff then PC, but the article doesn't mention anything one way or the other.

Thats ok, it seems most gamers upgrade their PCs or build new ones every >5 years so as long as your computer is pretty new (2> years old) then you should be ok.
