Max Payne 3 Takes Up a Monster 35GB

Rockstar have released the official updated required PC System Specs for Max Payne 3. The game is definitely going to look gorgeous but what appears to be the most outrageous spec is the 35GB requirement. 35GB of HDD space might seem a little excessive, but at the end of the day, that's how the game is achieving the amazing graphics it's pumping out.

To show you what kind of finish you're going to get with the new system specs, Rockstar included a handful of power screenshots and they look incredible. If only I had a machine that could churn these pretty babies out!


If you're planning on buying the downloadable version of the game, then now's a good time to start looking into going uncapped if you haven't already, especially with the recent announcement of Mweb's 1MB uncapped package for R199 a month. Remember all MWEB Internet traffic prioritizes gaming bandwidth over select gaming services so you'll always have the best gaming experience on MWEB's network.

Max Payne 3 will be available on the 1st of June and is available for pre-order.
