The system requirements clearly state Win XP/VISTA/7 with latest service packs.
Obviously XP and VISTA would need the latest Service Packs but come on surely no game to date requires Windows 7 SP1 does it?
I'm basing this off the fact that the beta worked fine without the SP1, on my Win7 machine, I currently have SP1 installed as a precaution.
However it was literally a nightmare to install, after two failed attempts and all of MS troubleshooting, I ended up having to reformat & re-install windows.
its not always so easy as people make out to upgrade to a Service Pack, and I can just see the dissapointment on peoples faces when they find out they cannot play.
We need an answer, does Win7 need to have SP1 to be able to install!? simple yes or no
