Do you think this is Microsoft's special, last-minute addition to their conference?

I'm not worried about it being on consoles, since CE3 automatically compiles any PC data to console-friendly formats.

But I'm a bit pissed that it's not an exclusive:P

I'll wait to see what the differences are. If the PC version is held back by having a console version, then yeah, this really sucks.

I didn't expect that o_0.

Well I have 0 expectations from it and no desire to see it/get it, so hopefully when they release some footage or they release the game it will be an awesome surprise :). Damn I really wanted that Prophet "expansion" :(.

That was impossible, unless Prophet had a Xen-like aventure. It would've been just a bunch of alien ship levels, and the public doesn't like them.

Hmm, I don't know probably it will suck. The great majority of multiplatform games sucked, there are exceptions though. We shall see what Crytek pulls out of this.

Yes to some extent, but DX 10 hardware isn't with DX 11, if that makes sense:P, as in running games that will use SM 5.0.

Who didn't see this coming? Personally I'm not a fan of open jungle gameplay, imo it could actually be better if it were a bit more linear and compact experience with graphics optimized for console level hardware. Yeah, it propably won't be pushing any boundaries but it could still be good.

Their prob. gonna f it up like the last one which wasn't that great anyway. It'll prob. run fine on the consoles and then we'll need a supercomputer to runthe pc version nowhere as good as the console versions, remember their promises of how good it'll run a good dual-core with 8800 series and most people couldn't max. it out except for crytek which was prob. bs as well.

obv its too much for a console if it was crysis. Hmm this actually epically dissapoints me. I expected to hear from it at E3 but now that I know it'll be on consoles too that only means the pc version will be lower quality... It always is it seems for multi platform....

Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, even GTA4 are much better on PC.

This is Crytek, they're always obsessed with quality. They even scrapped two games because they were mediocre, and that was before Far Cry.

A while back Crytek announced that they would not longer be doing pc exclusive, Cervat stated that they would have separate teams devoted to each platform though so I wouldn't worry

GAT4 better on PC?

Graphically yes, otherwise, its the opposite I would have to say.

PS. Im getting GTA4 on PC instead of PS3...

Here, Cevat Yerli explains they can fill the console versions with the same amount of content as the PC version, explains how they can build on all three platforms at the same time instead of porting some of them, says the PC will benefit even more from CE3's technological breakthroughs and that the PC community shouldn't be concerned.

And that CE3 will look better than CE2.

The EA conference starts in 6 hours and 30 minutes. I hope we'll see it then, if not at the Microsoft conference.

hopefully, the pc version will be scalable to the point where you can raise the settings to be better then crysis 1 though to be honest, i haven't upgraded my pc since crysis 1....so i doubt it could handle crysis 2 with settings better then the first game

Crytek is a business that is trying to make as much as possible for their games. The encouragement for them is when Halo 3 making $150 million in its first week.

but thats halo.....theres no promises of crysis 2 making that kind of money. are crytek/ea going to spend silly money on advertising to get halo levels of excitement? I doubt it. thats a bit like saying that making an adventure game like zelda on the wii will see sales and revenues similar to zelda TP on the wii. it doesent (ref okami). in saying that, from a business perspective its the right thing to do for crytek. more platforms=bigger customer base=more money. i just hope the game isnt a step backwards from crysis. CE3 better be hugely scalable.

Yeah, it's really stupid they found a way to transfer Crysis' gameplay on consoles. It's stupid they're still giving PC gamers the best product possible and increasing their profit for basically 0 efort, since the engine is designed to eat PC assets and crap console-compatible assets... Whores!

C'mon, we all know it's scalable. Cevat said it's better scalable than CE2.

And that one had freakin' Shader 2 support, in an era when most games were SM3 exclusive.

Holy crap, will you guys at least wait until the damned game is released before you start making some of these outrageous statements. We're all PC enthusiasts here, right? We all love PC games, right?

So cut the developers some slack here and wait for them to release their games first. THEN we can jump all over them and call them names.

I think they should just leave the PC alone. If they move this to the console it's going to be worse. The PC is where it's at, I miss the days of all the PC games, Now it's Xbox this and PS3 that.

Wait, Crytek are making Cryengine 3? That's how you know they completely bullsh**ed us when they said 'Cryengine 2 is built for the future' or some other deceiving statement. I just can't believe it.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't framerates STILL suck in Crysis using today's state-of-the-art hardware?

It's built for the future, do any games come close to it? and in case you haven't noticed, Crysis was released years ago. And yes, you need to be corrected, Crysis runs great on state of the art hardware and more than decent on hardware that people used to whine about when it was first released (an 8800 GT for example). But of course people always exaggerate and overreact if they can't play Crysis at 1920x1080, maxed out with 16xAA with more than 20-40 frames.

I'll correct you: the game runs fine (35 fps average) at 1680 x 1050 in "Gamer" with a 8800 GT or better and wonderfull (40 fps average) with a GTX 275/HD 4890 all in "Enthusiast" at the same res. A little example from my own system:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvWHdW66lSg

I'm not worried about Crysis 2 going multiplatform. The game will look better than Crysis & Warhead in PC and much worse than both in console vanilla versions, so no reason to bother because the guys are trying to obtain more benefice from console pockets.

I will wait till it comes out to start bashing. Who knows, there might be three versions and the pc version might be the best by far. And the MS and Sony versions might just be watered/dumbed down, who knows.

Just as long as its not beign ported, or brought down because of teh consoles, ill be happy.

Is not any multiplatform game better looking and faster running in a decent PC than in console? GTA 4, UT III, Gears Of War, Far Cry 2, Assassin's Creed, Quake Wars, Mirror's Edge... Hell, even Devil May Cry 4 and Lost Planet (from a mainly-console-developer) makes in PC run the consoles versions for his money -and cheaper to buy-.

If Crysis 2 fails in PC, it would be because mistakes in the gameplay, story, etc. But in a technical standpoint I can't see how could be worse than the previous titles from the franchise. It will use, for sure, better and more complex shaders, better lightning, new assets and more variety of -probably- bigger resolution textures.

I'm still more interested in Crysis Wars 2.0 itself than in the sp campaign. I'm mainly a mp player today.

Not paying for Crysis 2. I also highly doubt Crysis will penetrate console owners, granted there are better shooters on the platform console owners will much rather play, in addition the elements that made Crysis stand out on PC will be unapparent on consoles(graphics & sound).
