I think there are going to be a lot of disappointed owners of high end 2GB cards next year. Few things piss off pc gamers more than console envy. :p

I don't doubt gpu manufacturers are also counting on this.
Meh, it'll give me an excuse to buy a new card in a year. Ugrade to the 'new gen' so to speak, while actually having a reason to do so (increased VRAM). I don't mind! In the meantime, for the resolutions I play at, 2GB is plenty of memory.
