More and more games in the future are going to be moving to DX10 & DX11 - Graphics-Cards so its kinda inevitable. DX10 & DX11 - Graphics-Cards are not supported by Windows Xp.

Just Cause 2 Won't Support Windows XP

It had to happen eventually. Having wowed people ceaselessly since E3 with a a succession of explosive trailers, Just Cause 2 has finally put a foot wrong. And as far as the PC crowd is concerned, it's a big foot.

It's been revealed that the game won't run on Windows XP. Why? Because it's DirectX10 only. So only those running Vista or Windows 7 will be able to play the game, making it one of the first high profile releases to completely lock out the nine year-old operating system.

Sure, that makes it old, but as Rock, Paper, Shotgun point out, it also makes it established, the latest Steam hardware survey revealing 42.15% of users were running XP. That's one hell of a market share to freeze out of a game.

If all new software was crippled to work on old operating systems the software would lose out on all the new features that are available.
XP was ok, but there is no reason for people to keep dragging their heals about upgrading.
Times change - move on, if things didn't progress we'd all still be using Windows 3.1!
