CEO Feargus Urquhart from Obsidian has removed the veil of mystery from NWN2 minimum specs. Here they go:
Minimum, right now, is looking like a 2.4GHz P4, 512MB of RAM, NVidia 5600Ultra or ATI 9500pro or better and broadband for multiplayer.

I'll have to buy a whole new computer for it... but I suspected as much anyway. I have a feeling they'll be losing a lot of potential customers this time through though, with those being the MINIMUM requirements.

Their biggest problem for losing customers aren't the system requirements - but the fact that it's obvious that they are cutting out a LOT of stuff to hit their deadline.
If DM Client missing slipped out accidentally and was supposed to be in an announcement, I wonder how much stuff there's going to be eventually.
Not much, because the DM Client should be one of the last things they CAN cut.

The DM client will be in, or released shortly after the game. But yes, it's obvious that they've cut just about everything they've set out to achieve in the sequel.
For their sake, I hope that this doesn't include the planned better OC as well.

They're, IIRC, promising "about 20 hours of good gameplay". For the average user.
Isn't looking good for them, in the least.

Well I'm ready to go. ;)

Oh well, no NWN2 for me then....... I don't know what half that stuff means, but I know I don't have a 2.4ghz computer.

I pass everywhere except for the video card - damn my old crappy FX5200.

Will they ever learn that meeting deadlines at the cost of all the announced or promised things harms business? And 20 hours is what an expansion was back in the day.
