Firstly, presuming is good but I personally dont think so. Though they are both Open-World games, their style looks very different.
Secondly, Come on! How can you not play games smoothly with that rig? :p

It is not just for PC, it is also for PS3 and Xbox 360, so it still going to be limited, of course it is probable that the PC version is going to be uberdetailed but stll if it is launched in the current consoles you will run it at least in mid settings.

It will be an enhanced version for sure. And yea, he can play it well. Consoles don't actually interfere with the PC development, it is actually an excuse to not make a robust PC game. Let's see where this goes :)
