    Like all PC games coming out recently, i highly doubt those are the "actual" minimum specs. My rig is not as powerful as even the above specs, and I've been playing games like Metro 2033, Arkham Origins & a few other "powerhouse" titles on PC at equivalent/better performance than their 360/ps3 versions.

    Now the REAL question I have, is whether or not the game will support DX9 out of the box. That is an excellent indicator one whether or not older PC hardware can run it (because keep in mind, the Xbox 360 only supports up to DX9).

    Well, my specs surpass every requirement except for the one that matters. No graphics card. I thought about getting one as I want to play The Sims 4. Either way, doesn't matter as I'll get Isolation for PS3.
    I am completely sure that you will run Sims 4 perfectly fine. The game even have laptop mode in its options menu. EA are really strict about Sims being able to run on ALL tiers of PCs outthere. I have a friend with really cheap ass laptop and he plays the game (Sims 4) just fine. He can't even think of playing Alien:I on that thing and if you cover everything but the GPU req for A:I, you will run Sims 4 fine.

    The thing about PC hard drive requirements is that there are usually multiple copies for different LoD (Level of Detail). So, low-resolution textures, medium resolution textures, high resolution textures. Same goes for audio. Same goes for mesh data. The rest of the assets of a game don't usually contribute that much to the file size. Hey, if you want options on PC releases... you gotta have those options available in the resources to be loaded up which eats up hard drive space.
