Your PC Must Be This Solid To Run Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Snake? Snake? SNAAAAAAAAKE? Oh, sorry about the yelling. Just wanted to know what you've got under the hood of your PC.

Konami's released the PC specs for the (phantom) painfully long-awaited PC release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the mini open-world prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Here's what you'll need to run it:

Minimum Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later

Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above

Memory: 4 GB RAM or above

Graphics: GeForce GTX 650 or above

DirectX: Version 11 or above

Recommended Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later

Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above

Memory: 8 GB RAM or above

Graphics: GeForce GTX 760 or above

DirectX: Version 11 or above

So nothing too crazy, but you probably won't be running Ground Zeroes on a creaky old laptop either.

Konami has also been quite intent on letting the world know that this won't be one of those barebones PC ports that sullies a series' good name forever. They've promised customizable controls, Steam achievements, Steam Cloud support, and all that good stuff. Of course, there could still be framerate locks and restrictive graphics pre-sets, so we'll have to wait and see before we can officially declare this A Good Port.

For now, though, I'm suddenly realizing that I shouted "METAL GEAR" in a Solid Snake voice in a bar the other night, and I don't remember why. Oh wait, no, the other thing: are you getting Ground Zeroes on PC? Will this be your second go-'round, or have you held out for the PC release for the better part of a year?
