And if it is seriously eating over 3 GB of ram I'd like to know what it's using it on, because from appearances I'm not seeing the quantum leap over BO2.


I think if it is using an excess amount of ram, its doing it more as a streaming cache than straight up asset storage. Maybe there are next to no loading sections? Who knows. Still doubt it uses more than 2GB myself.

I love how off topic the morons are getting.

For a game that requires 6GB of RAM just to run, yes, the game is ugly. It doesn't even look as good as Battlefield 4 and Witcher 2. Both of which require far less. The graphics in Ghosts are a half decent improvement over previous gen CoD at best, and considering this is CoD, the odds of us getting a major graphical revamp anytime in the next decade after this are extremely slim. The series has fallen so far behind.


This is what I was thinking.

To compare the worth of Ghost's reqs...just compare them to games on PC that look just as good or better. It becomes very apparent that the reqs are grossly unnecessary. If the game looks WORSE while requiring MORE, then it's a crap game. This is how I am judging next gen games. I have no problem with games requiring a lot if I get good returns on the power invested. The problem is Ghosts isn't justified.

Perhaps it's siphoning system resources to power the Xbone cloud rendering.. /tinfoilhat

This is actually a viable supposition. Since raising the cost of xbox live is a bad idea, Microsoft had to come with some way to supply the cloud.

There is a workaround for the 6GB limit already.

We never need RAM
I finished Fallout New Vegas and all-DLC's in a 1GB RAM computer with a integrated video card, a dual-core 2ghz, 10fps medium and teleporting cazadores

Do you judge games by graphics and not gameplay?Only like realistic games?

I wonder how many bad ports PC gamers will continue to get seeing how they keep getting half ass ports on their platform, lol

Whatever happened to **** the graphics, I play games for gameplay?


PC master racists don't actually play games. They just load them up and check out their FPS to make sure they're getting at least 60.
