Judging by the amount of people that worked on this game, who knows how much EA spent on this big boy. Even if it earns money, the amount of money earned could not be enough for EA to remain satisfied. And you think they will be satisfied? Crysis on consoles is only a matter of time. There's no reason for EA to keep it as a PC exclusive. And if it requires dumbing it down... well, so it will be.

I think your average console wouldn't have the required ram to support all the on-screen objects that crysis requires. Although they can run the engine, Farcry 2 is generally far more barren, has fewer trees/buildings/mountains and has noticeably lower polygon counts (and instead appears to rely more heavily on shaders).

I very much doubt Crysis will come to consoles in this generation without majorly scaling down the resolution of the textures, the number of polygons on screen or the number of objects on screen.
