Bioshock Infinite Won't Run on XP

BioShock Infinite PC Requirements was revealed by Irrational Games (the game developer) and it seems that it does not support Windows XP as its supporting operating system.

According to the Steam Hardware Software Survey, over 10% of the players still use Windows XP as their main gaming operating system. The new requirements for PC mention that the player needs to have at least Windows Vista SP 2 in order to be able to run the game.

Steam Operating System Percentage

However Irrational Games and 2K are not very much concerned about that, since the majority of expected sales for the game is on console, hence why 10% of an already small group is nothing too threatening for them to worry about.

Here is the announced system requirements:
