    No I relaize they don’t support XP for Most Wanted.
    Not sure if that will be great optimization (just cause2) or lazy port :D

    No support for XP probably means that the engine just doesn’t support DX9.0… Good riddance honestly. If you claim to be a PC gamer and still play with XP, you’re doing it wrong. :)
