We talk to multiplayer senior producer Hasit Zala about what makes multiplayer in Crysis 2 more awesome then the rest.
I hope they'll give pc gamers like me a good experienced game cus l dont want to play another bad ported ps3 or xbox game.And if this video belongs to consoles which it does i guess.Im really sorry but graphics on ps3 or 360 sucks.I have a badass pc and im gonna play this game on highest possible settings and especially with DirectX11.too bad that the consoles are still stuck with DX9:D
And i was reading comments 360 VS. PS3... easy solution PC wins!!! you can play on 99999x999999 resolution on PC. so if 1080p is so important than why spend you money on a console when you can save for PC. Plus with sales on steam, and the $10 you end up spending less then on consoles for every game. HURRAY!! all gaming problems solved.
Been waiting for this since I finished the first! The only thing this game is missing. And I do mean the only thing. Is a bad A$S AK that does actual AK damge! (Copy AK from Counter Strike!) And no offense console lovers, but too bad it wasn't PC only I bet it would be even more sick (more destructablity) if it was.
I Love all these pc gamers in a flat panic over this game if they will be able to play on release date or fork out so more mula for this and that and run it on lower settings,where all the rest will just insert and enjoy!
tomtomwolfwolf did you just have a fanny flap LOL Thats why its called free enterprize,do what you like the joke is on you hahaha.
It is said that the game would run better on the ps3 than the X360, but best on the pc. I own a ps3 n play on 720p not the best HD but still HD n I guess il enjoy it!!! 8)
God dam I hate it when people don't know anything about PC gaming say stuff like "PC gaming is dying, you need to upgrade every month, consoles have better exclusives". Seriously, just shut the **** up if you don't know what you are talking about. I wont even bother telling you the facts, since you'll probably discard them and say "durp di duhh i can play gamez at 1080p duhh pc fanboy".
Graphics are a pretty significant downgrade, but that's the sacrifice we gotta play if console gamers are ever gonna play this game. I wish I had a great gaming PC :P
@virsuqg What comparison's were you looking at? The PS3 is better, no argument. But I am just going to top off this whole thing and say that PCs are easily the best gaming system.
@CovertChris love how u say advantage, when all graphic comparisons between the two have the 360 holding the trophy in most cases,(which is opinion, so easy there fanboys. still is what it is) this would be considerably sad if the ps3 was running at 1080p and 360 was not (since some tend to think that it just cant, take ya back to giga's comment "1080p its a resolution more know has 1920x1080, and no the Xbox 360 can't run games at 1920x1080, the PS3 can") when the SS's were taken HAHA food for thought :)
OMG I would cut off my legs to get this game! I say my legs cuz i could still play it with my upper body. =P
@virusqg I wish more PS3 games ran at 1080p, because thats what gives the PS3 the advantage over the 360.
@Giga_Surfer Just for Shets and giggles, when you said "But where you really screw up in your point was the HDMI cable, i simply lol at that. 1080p its a resolution more know has 1920x1080, and no the Xbox 360 can't run games at 1920x1080, the PS3 can, but as it was pointed out, not on graphic intensive games, HDMI cable is just a cable that supports those resolutions, it not makes your game 1080p, most games on PS3 and Xbox 360 are run on 720p or lower, and only a handful of the PS3 games runs on 1080p", When purchasing a game first thing i do is look on the back to make sure that the 1080p aka the res mentioned above is supported, given the tv, cable etc. and most do... specially the "graphic intensive" games haha. that'd be pretty f'ed up of them to say the game runs in 1080p, and in fact because its a xbox 360, it doesnt...
@kenmanius Actually the new nVIDIA 580 showed some really good results in sli configuration going as far as 85% scaling, what i do advise is to wait the Amd (its no longer ATI) 6900 Series and specially the dual gpu 6990. Lets see how that battle goes, personally I'v had both Amd and Nvidia cards and can say both manufactures are quite good, its just a personal choice and how much you wanna spend. Next year I'm gonna set up a new rig, but will wait Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture to come out 1st specially the 2011 socket.
I hear 2 ATI cards yield much better results than 2 Nvidia cards. But as far as a single GPU, this game will definately be optimized for Nvidia chipsets.
I think two 470 SLIs should run this game at max no?!! They better haha or I would have to buy a 580 now ...
@Giga_Surfer You're right about that, but scaling the requirements with the graphics it was unbalanced. It could have been coded much better, but that's easy to say 3 years later. But it is possible to pull off a great graphical experience without spending 1000-1500$ with CF and what not. :) A good example of how a game can be well coded yet still push the high-end PC-power, as you mention, is Metro 2033.
@AndreasRoeder You can play Crysis on any rig, as long as u tone the settings down, besides Crysis is symbol of power, its made to push PC to its limits. Thats what makes this game so distinct.
Hopefully the game will be coded better than Crysis 1, so computers don't have to be ridiculously powerful (and expensive!!) to enjoy it in decent graphics. MW2 managed to pull off a decent graphical game, that could run on low-end computers.
i read somewhere that nvidia have given Ģ2M sponsorship to this game, so i would expect this is going to need GTX580 (or 2!) for high settings. They want this to be a flagship for DX11 & Tessellation...(remember when Crysis 1 came out, nothing could run it at max setting?) may even have switched to PhysX
Hey not to system hate but i loled to myself when he was like "it will be avalible for all platforms, so PS3, Xbox 360, and PC" but He didn't say Wii lololol wii is offically not a console anymore! lamo! and yes i can say this i have all of them.
@Giga_Surfer: lol yeah, I'm the stubborn fanboy who can't admit he's wrong (paraphrase, look it up). Cause you've been a real open minded, objective and cordial individual about this ;) ................................................You keep on taking what I say, only out of context and try to use it as ammo. Changing the subject and never addressing my previous proven points. Pathetic. I already said I was referring to BOTH consoles previously, but you keep trying to play that card. .......................................But I see Captain giga wants to go down with his ship...fine by me. I won't be replying back to you (or anyone else here) anymore. You have free reign over this dead topic now. Feel free to take your childish pot shots in my absence. I'm just going to delete my inbox when I see your name. Have fun upgrading ($) your rig just to play this game (I wont have to). cheers dude!
Giga_Surfer says "In 6 months there was 12 exclusive games just for the PC, might not have been super high rated games, but all of them with 7+ ratings." lol oh right, I forgot! They don't have to be good, just as long as their "PC exclusives". ooh but 12 PC exclusives huh? (and you don't have to say "just for the PC"...that's what "exclusive" means) There are over 30+ worth while console exclusives coming out in 2011. But I know as a console gamer, I'm all broken up about not getting "The Sims Medieval" right away. All those exclusives you wave around like a trophy...when do you suppose half of them will actually come out? 1 year? 3?...5? Or the decade trend like it's been getting? I'll admit when I'm wrong...when I am actually wrong.............................................. The problem is, in your own little world, you're never wrong. And when I mean semantics, I'm also talking about you twisting things and getting specific with the 360 when I'm also referring to the PS3 (or consoles in general) It's redundent. So how about you take "your" own advice "DUDE".
@Giga_Surfer: lol I think it's your foot that has the hole in it. Just take a look at the browse reviews page. There are over 40 titles there (just on the ONE page alone) and only 4 PC versions, all of which are NOT exclusives. And counting exclusives that have yet to come (if at all) is really reaching man. None of the PC versions scored any higher than the PS3 or 360 (let alone the Wii). Infact, the PC version of SW:FU2 scored LESS with a 5.5. "Dude"..and that's just the current reviews..............................I really love how you guys play semantics with "Graphically intensive games". It's left up to your own interpretation and opinion. Xtasy was wrong saying "Consoles can't" when it came to 1080p. I'm saying that it can. It's moot whether any given game is supported or not, its STILL capable. So you can put that baby to bed. Cheers
@lithus Dude just now you just shot your own foot, actually yeah the PC does have more exclusive games, if you bothered to check the Gamespot list you would realize that, just in the last 6 months the PC, released more exclusive games then the Xbox 360 and PS3 combine in the whole year, also note that DLC are not games, its game content. But where you really screw up in your point was the HDMI cable, i simply lol at that. 1080p its a resolution more know has 1920x1080, and no the Xbox 360 can't run games at 1920x1080, the PS3 can, but as it was pointed out, not on graphic intensive games, HDMI cable is just a cable that supports those resolutions, it not makes your game 1080p, most games on PS3 and Xbox 360 are run on 720p or lower, and only a handful of the PS3 games runs on 1080p. So next time you should take your own advice: " Helps if you do your research before you shoot your mouth off." Cheers
[QUOTE="Xtasy26"]"lol no you don't" what? PC has more highly rated exclusives than Xbox 360 or PS3. It can also do 1080P gaming on graphic intensive games. Consoles can't.[/QUOTE] I love how ppl act like they didn't hear you but respond anyway. And I especially love how you repeat the same BS with every post you make. The PC does NOT have more highly rated exclusives that the 360 or PS3. It's the other way around. Exclusives like what, Diablo 3? lmao Yeah if that ever comes out. How long was that Starcraft 2 wait? Duke Nukem? Over a decade?! lol, yeah you guys got exclusives alright, you just gotta go into cyro-sleep to wait for them............................................................................... Consoles got Bioshock 2's DLC "Minerva's Den" before the PC, infact the PC wasn't gonna get it at all til enough of you wrote in and cried about it. And Consoles CAN do 1080p. Helps if you do your research before you shoot your mouth off. It's called an HDMI cable http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Xbox360/Accessories/CablesNetworking/Home
@SelPen Agree with you, if this game delivers what, I'm expecting, i will have to upgrade mine to, but I'm gonna wait for the new Intel processors and the new nvidea cards, Socket 2011 ftw *__*.
@ Gabe - looked like they were driving through grand central but that subway station doesn't exist... the subway entrances are within grand central fairly close but the building that falls on GC seems to be realistic. Close enough for me to take another look at it next time I'm there.
Please developers, try to test it on some normal PCīs before you release it. I donīt want to buy next slideshow game. btw Awesome screenshots
I reckon a fictional city with variety would of been better,ive seen too many tall grey buildings from new york in games to last me a life time.
@Giga_Surfer that list is inaccurate. Better list is here: http://forum.beyond3d.com/showthread.php?p=1113342#post1113342 Black Ops isn't even 720P (no surprise there it's more demanding than MW2). Call of Duty: Black Ops = 960x544 (2xAA) It runs at a measely 544P LOL.
