Crytek will demonstrate their CryENGINE 2 game development middleware and their Sandbox 2 game editor at this year's Game Developer Conference, for the first time running on multiple hardware platforms such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
hope it looks real good on consoles
lets hope for a decent console version indeed.
Crysis for Consoles
Saw the demo running on a naff PC the other night and yes, all the settings were low etc., and the frame rate was choppy, but the game still looked good and the physics were awesome. It can only be alot better on the consoles from what I saw the other night.
I hope the gameplay translates well for you console guys. We all know (of course) the graphics will be cut back. But even at that the game should still look on par with the other FPS games on the market. Which is not that bad at all.
Man I really need to build a new PC and get Crysis. Does GDC start on Feb 18th?
can't wait to see what they have been working on for the ps3.
They should show Crysis running on both systems and give a release date for it. If they just show the engine running on the 360 and PS3 and not even have a real game for it, that would be lame. I know the GDC is more for the Game Developers but if they use just to sell the engine, that would suck.
Just finished crysis 2 hours ago. Lovely game.
It'll be good to have another Engine for Devs to use other that the Unreal engine.
Then there may be some variation in how the games look.
Indeed the competition will only make both engines better faster.
Crysis is a FANTASTIC game, its basically a insanely fun physics engine with an awesome game built around it. I feel that people downplay the gameplay because of the great graphics however because they dont want to give the game a 10/10 (maybe they feel it's pretentious?) I loved it (even on low settings ;) ) Very immersive
I hope they've engineered their engine to work efficiently on whichever console they've ported it to. I'd hate to see a dumbed down version of an angine due to one console or the other. The engine should take advantage of each platform's strengths.
I have the feeling they will announce Crysis for the PS3 and 360 at GDC.
"multiple hardware platforms such as the PS3 and Xbox 360"
Such as? so it could be on the wii for all we know or MAC (i realise thats very very unlikely though)?
I hope there will be a mac version though. I'd be willing to shell out even though i don't play games on my mac usually
This will be interesting to see how good the engine is on Consoles, epic may have a battle on there hands, which is all the better for us gamer's.
ps3 will be as good as the pc ver if not a little better i have a feeling the x box will be dumbed down ver
I agree...crysis in PS3 will be way better than pc...
I have a feeling that eating paste and sniffing white out are your favorite hobbies.
I hope so. Hopefully they are as good as Naughty Dog and took advantage of the SPUs. If so, then I believe it can be better than the pc version.
I don't expect anything near what they accomplish on PC's, that would be illogical considering the obvious hardware differences(unless you are wearing you fanboy goggles). It will be interesting to see what they can do with the next gen consoles.
the cryengine for ps3 will be cryengine NEXT GEN play b3yond, it will feature cg in realtime
Well, of course, it will have cg (computer graphics) in realtime. lol
Crysis is coming to a console near you. LOL
when is GDC?
starts feb 18th
starts Feb. 18th I believe.
Excellent can't wait 2 see what they've done with it. I'm getting sick of UE3 and this would be a nice addition
Well on step closer to crysis been realese on PS3 and 360.
hopefully this gives dev teams an alternative to the unreal engine.
There are many alternatives to the Unreal Engine. It is chosen by Development houses instead of these other engines for reasons. Whatever those reasons -- I dont know, but the industry doesnt exactly have a lack of engines.
id has its Tech series that they are going to focus on licensing more, but the old engine (series4) was used in 3rd party titles.
Zonetrooper five.... seems liek you were overly insulted by his admittedly incorrect statement. Don't point and shout at fanboy remarks if you're no better. And so openly.
He never even mentioned the 360, and you assume he's slagging it off. Maybe you should grow up.
you do reliase you are speaking to a moderator of this site (zonetrooper). i think you should do some research to who you try and get at.
Now all we need is the games from them..
thats not an error, thats lasting truth, no pc has 2.18tflops and growing, and nor can i play GT5 and wardevil on any pc either, so my statement is correct, and fanboyism doesnt live in me, only you all. so you grow up
"2.18tflops and growing" What!?!?!?!
The PS3 is not a console anymore, it's a lifeform! ;)
I've been so interested in this title, I can't wait to get it on PS3.
If you had seen the PM's he had sent me then you could cleary see he is a fanboy, he talks as if the PS3 is some sort of unlimited power supply to devs which is not true and he called the 360 a 180. I do admit I was heavy handed by responding in such a fashion so sorry about that. However, you can tell he is fanboy but the statements he produces.
CRYSIS ON CONSOLES FTMFW!!!! finally i will be able to play crysis with more than 4fps
Would be very interesting to see how the engine works parallel with 360 and PS3.
Im looking forward to Far Cry 2 the next CryEngine2 game. Crysis is a technical marvel.
The custom engines such as the ones developed by Insominac & Naughty Dog they really push the PS3 forward unlike these one size fits all engines.
i have crysis amazing but the ps3 version would be better as the developer crytek will be able to uterlise the ps3 version. even crysis can't scratches the ps3 hardware no overclocked processor comes close and the GPU clocks faster with SPU support. Xbox would be a dumbed down version and any one who thinks that DX10 make a difference are bsing. ps3 games look better dont trush game trailer there dont use full hd support.
Far cry 2 is not using cryengine2 (and is not a crytek production crytek have only made far cry and crysis) but is using small % of coding
"this year's engine will be shown for the first time running on multiple hardware platforms such as the PS3 and Xbox 360"
I dunno, I may just be too picky that when I read "SUCH AS" it's a guess, they aren't officially stating that it is on both.
Could be for 360 only, or PS3 only, or again im too picky and it's both.
That being said I wanna see how this beast of an engine is gunna be handled by these systems.
I hope it is Crysis Deluxe on the consoles. Maybe with scaled back graphics but more content, ie, a better more fleshed out storyline for example.
This is one console comparison im interested to see. We know porting from PC to 360 is "simple" so thats a good sign. Cryteck admitting have a secret PS3 team at work months before Crysis was even released. Thats gonna be one hell of a thread! lol..
I think Crysis will push the next gen consoles like never before. I hope to see something special at GDC from Crytech.
Xbox is junk
