XP slowly losing game support

Assasin’s Creed 3 waves goodbye|

Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system may have been all the rage once, but it’s pretty clear that its future holds nothing but that colorful place in winheaven, where operating systems go to die.

Upcoming Assasin’s Creed 3 is among the latest games to dump XP for its shiny siblings. The game’s minimum requirements list Core 2 Duo E6700/Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and 512MB DirectX 9.0c-compliant card with Shader Model 4.0 but XP support is gone.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 team has also decided against supporting old-man-XP and it appears as if it’s just a matter of time before actual inclusion of it becomes newsworthy. Naturally, both these games will support Vista, 7 and 8.

Having said that, yours truly would rather put a finger in his eye and twirl it around singing “Shiny Happy People” than spend another minute in Vista. Heck, even Windows 3.1 suddenly started sounding like music to my ears.
