With less than two months left before PC gamers can experience a truly next gen basketball simulation title with NBA 2K15, 2K Sports revealed the system requirements for the game and they are in some areas pretty surprising.

We’ll discuss them a bit later, but first let’s check them out below and I am sure you will see for yourself the “surprises”!

NBA 2K15 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64 bit or higher
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo or better
Memory: 2 or more GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 10.1 compatible (512 MB) or better
DirectX: Version 11
Hard Drive: 50 or more GB available space
Sound Card: 9.0c compatible

NBA 2K15 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64 bit or higher
Processor: Intel Core i7 or better
Memory: 4 or more GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 11.0 compatible (2 GB) or better
DirectX: Version 11
Hard Drive: 50 or more GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible

Even though things don’t look so bad in regards of processor/memory and graphics card requirements, the surprises come from the fact that the game requires no less than 50GB of hard drive space to run, while it is only available of 64 bit (or higher) systems. So it appears that slowly but surely the 32-bit era is becoming obsolete and future big name games will have requirements similar to those of NBA 2K15.

One of my personal wishes is that the game itself manages to be playable only with a keyboard – all previous iterations were basically impossible to play with a complete set of features without a controller. Maybe this year will be the first to mark such an important change. Because, yes, I still like to game using the old keyboard!

What do you think about the NBA 2K15 system requirements, though? Are they surprising for you?
