Max Payne 3 commercial and PC specs released

Slow motion gun fights and explosions sell things, right? It’s certainly the route Rockstar has taken with their TV commercial for Max Payne 3. Coming to think of it, we would probably buy more cleaning products if they were advertised with big enough explosions.

The advert for Max Payne 3 doesn’t try and inspire you with the narrative or plot, instead opting to focus on the Matrix-style bullet ballet for which the series is well known. It definitely sells that bit of the game to us.

PC specs for the game have also been released so you can see if your rig matches the magic numbers required to play it. The good news is that it runs on Windows XP, so the defiant few out there who refuse to upgrade OS can still play it. The bum clenching news however is that the game requires 35 GB of hard drive space. That’s a lot of hard drive to clear. The full range of specs are below, as found on Rockstar’s blog:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 32/64 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 32/64 Service Pack 2, Windows XP 32/64 Service Pack 3
  • Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ – i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ / AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ – FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ
  • RAM: 2GB – 16GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA 8600 GT 512MB VRAM – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB VRAM / Radeon HD 3400 512MB VRAM – Radeon HD 7970 3GB VRAM
  • Sound Card: 100% Direct X 9.0 compatible – Direct X 9.0 compatible supporting Dolby Digital Live
  • HDD Space: 35 GB

Max Payne 3 will be able to take over a large portion of your PC hard drive on June 1, a later release than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game which will be available May 18.
