No matter what happens, NFS 11 will be for next-gen consoles. I'm beginning to think that only the most advanced PCs with huge CPUs and a lot of processing power will be able to cope with the requirements of NFS 11, providing they put as many of the features in it as we would like.
a friend of mine ran nfsmw and nfsc on his computer with pentium 2 (not four, which isn't that sucky by the way), 1 8x dvd rom AT THE SAME TIME!
so, it doesn't have to ONLY work on power PC's. my computer can run the next NFS!
