Crysis rated for 360, PS3

ESRB, Korean rating board evaluate console versions of Crytek's 2007 first-person shooter.


In March, dedicated Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers were able to get their first taste of Crytek's signature first-person shooter franchise with Crysis 2. Now it appears they'll soon be able to get a second helping of the nano-suit-enabled franchise with console editions of the first Crysis.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board and the Korean equivalent Game Rating Board have both posted age guidelines for an Xbox 360 edition of the original Crysis. Though Sony's console is absent from the GRB site, the ESRB's database also mentions a PS3 version of the game.

Rumors of a console version of Crysis started almost as soon as the game had a name, but have yet to be officially confirmed. Inquiries to Crytek and Crysis publisher Electronic Arts were not returned as of press time.

The sophomore effort from Frankfurt, Germany-based Crytek, Crysis was a first-person shooter and a technological showpiece for the studio's PC-only CryEngine 2. Since that time, Crytek has introduced CryEngine 3, which was incorporated into Crysis 2 and designed to run on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
