Crysis 2 Confirmed For Multiple Platforms 61

EA and Crytek teamed up for an announcement at E3, confirming that Crysis 2 was under development for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Details are scarce (and the trailer is no help), but the game will use CryENGINE 3, which will be able to scale performance such that it will look good on consoles while still pushing the limits of PC graphics. Quoting: "When asked if that sounded like a contradiction, [Crytek's Cevat Yerli] responded that you have to think of technology as a tool that can scale. He said the game's content scales to the platform it's on. 'The PC version will look better, because of the fact that the PC can do more. It will be scaling up. But on the consoles, you're competing with console games,' he said. 'The goal is to be the best looking game on PS3 [and] the best looking game on 360 in the entire market.' On the PC front, Crysis 2 will compete with the original Crysis, which still sets the bar for PC graphics."

    Cevat Yerli likes to yell. This was no exception. So, take his complaints with a grain of salt. Crysis sales did not suffer from piracy, they suffered from Crysis' insane price for what basically is a techdemo with a little bit of gameplay. The times where the hype about the graphics was enough to sell a game are definitely over. Crytek didn't learn this lesson yet.

    They'll actually put out a game instead of a fucking tech demo. The first game was pretty awful.

    But Vista was awful and slow and terrible for me. Following the application of the first service pack the OS stopped loading the display drivers and cited a Code 43 error, and no power on heaven or Earth could get them working again. Performance was consistently slower than XP even on a Core 2 that was comfortably better-specced than Microsoft's recommendations, and in the end I found too few reasons to stick with it. As for Crysis, I thought it was pretty but otherwise played out like a Sci-Fi movie of the week with great production values. Combined with Vista it was a system-devouring sight to behold...

    I've never had stability problems with Vista but my big gripe with it is that it's kind of slow. My 5 year old dual 2.7 GHz G5 at work seems to respond and run anything but graphics more rapidly than my brand new PC at home running a dual core 2 duo, 3.24 GHz. I find it incredibly strange, I feel relieved that I only require Vista for games and the rest of the time I'm running a very snappy e17 with the ecomorph composite manager.

What this country needs is a good five cent ANYTHING!
