Call of Duty: Ghosts PC specs from Nvidia not official

Activision says "please stay tuned for the official requirements coming soon."

by

The minimum system specifications for the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts listed by Nvidia this week are not official, Activision has confirmed.

Posting on its website this week, Nvidia said Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC would require 6GB of RAM and 50GB of hard drive space, as well as a Nvidia GeForce GTX 550Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better video card.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature dedicated servers across all platforms.

The game will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on November 5. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow when those platforms launch later in the month.

Nvidia always post specs that they partner with.

Nah, nobody's really surprised here. Now don't get me wrong; I buy both AMD/ATi and Nvidia parts. But from the moment I heard about it on the News, I just knew that page was SO obviously a shameless plug by a pathetic Nvidia tool.

No kidding! What's a video card manufacturer doing posting specs for a game they didn't develop anyway?

atleast they said they will provide the accurate min video requirement for COD; Ghost since the HD is already insane 50GB

Well no kidding, the game was listed with GTX 780 as recommend (lolwut), that's insane, that's super high end tech. Obviously they're gonna be lower, the specs that is.

It's on 360... it won't require much to play.

My guess is Activision is fearful that if they release specs for minimum being too low it'll make next gen look less appealing maybe? But by contrast if you pump it up too high, despite being released on Xbox 360, you're risking alienating a LOT of casual PC gamers.

Good job nvidia, providing accurate information.

Its probably mostly marketing BS so some people get spooked and run out and buy the biggest bestest PC stuff to make Nvidia, AMD and Intel a boatload of cash.

Everyone should just relax and wait and we will see what really happens.

6 GB of RAM for min req ? lol  But it still looks (the next gen version) like shit compared to BF 3.

But hey, at least it uses a heavily modified  ....... wait for it.............. Quake 3 engine. lol

Good to see some random people on Twitter are doing some fact checking, unlike so-called game journalists.

This is the second incorrectly reported minimum specs in a week. The last one was Battlefield 4. Not every rumour should be reported on, not without checking the source & the facts first.

First they released GTA V for PC, then they released Ghosts SysReq, what's next? Free Amazon Blonde with new 780?

More importantly, why was nVidia allowed to dictate the unofficial (aka bullshit) specs for this game and tell everyone that their most expensive mainstream card was required to play the game in any reasonable manner without knowing it was the case at all?

Yeah, remember Ubisoft's clarifications on Watch Dogs' requirements? What the hell are they smoking?

What a bunch of M.... F..... that dam EA and UBI soft. So I need two graphic cards that cost 600$ a piece.... really. This is like M$ forcing you to buy a Kenict. They don't need the specs to be this high, what an outrage.

nvidia is probably adding their own ambient occlusion, physx, and txaa so if you wanna take advantage of that you will need  a good nvidia card

What the hell is it with these companies screwing around with their system reqs?First Watch Dogs, now this! It's getting ridiculous; what is it, amateur hour in the gaming PR business?

I think its funny they basically ever gamer on this site saw right through that BS.

Its the kids and their parents making the purchases, so if NVidia can sell a couple cards to people who don't know any better, why not. and what better crowd to direct it towards then the cod crowd

GTX 780 required GTFO.

The original requirements were similar to that of Star Citizen. CoD doesn't look anywhere close to that good, and probably won't until the next generation (as in AFTER PS4/X1/Wii U)

They just want us to belive It's NEXT GEN. It's not

not sure but i'll stick with spec requirement on MW3 or BO2 i think it may not be 'that much' different anyway.

I hope that by inaccurate they dont mean a Nvidia Titan

@Daian  The funny part is, it wasn't even the card. I just didn't trust it. That particular page just felt too "commercial" and slimy for me.

@nutcrackr  So true, buddy. Though I've already guessed as much, days before.

@KopyKat000  Mostly agreed. However, although there is mention of older-generation AMD and Intel parts, they're obviously just there to make the page appear "legit". But for the most part, it's just a shameless plug meant to advertise Nvidia's "greatest" card/s.

@mischiefmeerkat Rage on PC is already 25GB and this game was released 2 years ago.  What is the issue with 50GB if there are really more content? a thumb drive nowadays can hold this space. PCs now come in terrabytes.

@naryanrobinson Nvidia seem to be pressed against a wall by AMD at the moment. Perhaps its just marketing bull.

I bet they sold a lot of 780's in a day from COD fans though.

@kgallis21 

What are you talking about?  It doesn't say you need both and neither are that expensive...

@bombaclut if the game does not support it  wont be required...maybe they can force txaa

@SurfaceNerd A Titan and a 780 perform almost identically. A 780 is the same chip as the Titan (GK110), but just with some CUDA cores disabled.

@Shooter747 Are you 14?  Why are you so upset.  Activision does use an ancient engine for their yearly money grab.

@ryanreynolds yeah definitely, sitting on my lazy boy recliner chair playing the game on my console  thru a 60 inch HDTV connected to a 7.2 Hifi home theater system.

You dont need to be a COD fan to purchase 780. Its for ur gaming performance. If u cant afford it. Shutup.

@Shooter747 @ryanreynolds Not sure what this means... are you trying to say I can't do that with a PC? I mean because I can do all that and a lot more, so it really doesn't make sense what your saying...
