GB PC game specs released? Yes. Not accidentally.

AJ Quick at GBFans.com has come upon a generally unknown Atari webpage which is being put together in anticipation of the demo release for the PC version of the Ghostbusters video game. Assuming they are the final specs (and not placeholders from a different game, intended to be replaced before going public), they are informative. Support for an Xbox 360 controller is nice, for those not wanting to use keyboard and mouse like a proper old school PC player. Represent!

Fun PC Direct X tip – there are different versions of 9c, so just because you have a version of 9c, don’t assume it the one you need, and you should install the Direct X drivers when prompted. Also, Direct X 10, which comes on Vista, sounds a lot like it’s more than 9c, but no… it’s not. So, if you have a Vista system with 10, you should still install 9c on the game disc. Fun! Boring! But it’ll save some of you some frustration, I’ll bet.

And no word yet as when the demo will be released, but typically it will be in the month prior to game release, provided they’re not waiting until after release to put the demos out (which does happen sometimes.)

[UPDATE] Paul points out the page (link added above) has a couple of new screenshots as well as the new forum (after the short-lived Sierra forum was yanked.)
