Laptop video cards "may work but are not supported"

#1 Posted by triple07 (1198 posts) -

So I was looking at the system requirements for the game and it says that laptop versions of supported video cards "may work but are not supported". So now I'm questioning how well I could run this and if I'd be better off getting the 360 version even though the PC version seems to be the best version.

I've got a decent laptop with a Geforce 555M which should run this game but now I'm questioning if it'll work on my laptop. Anyone out there get this running on their laptop? Have you guys seen any other games that say this in their system requirements that work fine on a laptop?

Every PC game has that in the small print. It just means that they haven't been tested and stops people demanding a refund if, for some reason, it doesn't work. I've been playing games on my laptop for a long while now, and I've never had a problem, despite all of the clauses stating that laptop cards aren't supported.

The 360 version plays fine. You should get the version that you know works.
