The third iteration in the much loved Max Payne franchise scheduled for release at the end of next month on PC will not only have the pissed off ex-cop inflicting pain on his enemies in a fit of vengeful rage, but also on your available storage capacity! – Rockstar has released the official system requirements for Max Payne 3 and while the majority of the listed specs aren't at all alarming, one certainly is.

HDD Space: 35 GB

Certainly, if you're confined to the capacity limitations of a smaller SSD you could potentially be in trouble here. It can only be assumed at this point that the majority of the 35GBs of bloat is taken up by super high-resolution textures, not that high-res textures should be scolded upon. If you're an avid PC gamer chances are you'll be appreciating the bloat and rubbing it in the PS3 and Xbox 360 fanboys' faces.
