Crysis 3 'maxes out consoles', says Crytek CEO, 'not even 1% left'

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is so confident that Crysis 3 will be the most technically accomplished game ever released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that he's offered to wage a technological war against current-gen showstoppers Gears of War and Halo.

But how? I thought Crysis 2 maxed out consoles

More developer talk I suppose, I think there games are over rated in my opinion, Crysis 2 was extremely boring, played it on the PS3, even if I was to play it on a high end PC it wouldnt change that fact that the gameplay was boring, the enemies where all the same

I have no expectations of Crysis 3, I doubt ill even rent it

Because his maximum troll suit is engaged.

hahahaha... super mate..!! :P

Typical Crysis news. Maxes out everything except the enjoyment you get from playing it.

MurDocINC1710d ago

Crytek needs to play Farcry3 before they start running their mouths off.

SilentNegotiator1710d ago

"maxing out" means nothing. You could max out hardware by rendering enough pictures of a willy, too.

I'm sure that overall, Crysis 3 won't be very impressive on consoles, just like Crysis 2. Framerate issues, lack of real AA, etc.

I'm sure they'll stiff-arm PC gamers and give an iffy experience to console gamers, just like Crysis 2. They've ultimately left no one completely satisfied with their recent approach.

I hate this "maxed out" BS. The console couldn't run a launch title at 60fps. The GPU was thus maxed out. All they're doing is reducing the rendering quality and image quality further to put more things on the screen. On a PC the rendering quality remains exactly the same no matter what you add.

Nice one zebramocha... first time I smiled today. I don't like the "max out" statements, because unless it is built perfectly (which no game is), it means there will be flaws causing pop-in, framerate issues etc, because they "maxed out" the hardware. I know it's just a PR statement, but in reality XBOX and PS3 have different processors therefor different caps at what would max them out. So the "max out" statement is just PR BS to get attention... and apparently it worked.

lmao omg i can just picture that voice coming on as he activates it

Lol okay I'm officially a nerd because that made me laugh out loud.

"he's offered to wage a technological war against current-gen showstoppers Gears of War and Halo"

Yeah... because I was totally thinking about Gears and Halo when we're talking about heavyweights in the graphics department....... rofl

pixelsword1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

If they were so confident, they would have challenged TLoU, Killzone, and other games. Gears is a heavy-hitter, but Halo isn't very advanced except in gameplay.

SolidStoner1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

there is no particular maximum..

it depends on the game when maximum is reached...

in the end we understand that crysis 3 developers maxed ps3 out and cant do any better... while others still make some tweaks learning better ways to deal with things....

EDIT: overall have to agree, developers can make better graphics, but this gen consoles are starting to need for more power.. and its totally normal thing in the end.. need to wait for the next gen...

Crysis 2 definitely had the potential to blow every console game out of the water graphically, but they rushed it out and didn't polish it at all. it played like something you'd probably get if you played the version after alpha but before beta, this being the PS3 version.

the last 2-3 minutes of Crysis 2 where Alcatraz enters the Ceph ship and crawls through that red stuff inside the ship is the most impressive 2-3 minutes of gameplay I've see on any console game, better than Kratos vs. Poseidon, better than Drake tripping and walking through sand dunes.

giving credit where credit's due.

sourav931710d ago

How about Snake crawling through that microwave filled chamber at the end of MGS4?

Aghashie1710d ago

oh, oh torchid... u had it coming. I've played the game, a few minutes of beauty polingons in a screen doesn't make a game. go back to uncharted or halo, u may learn something abaut beautiful poligons from the very beginning, to the very end. not trying to troll you bro, just my opinion.

ZombieNinjaPanda1710d ago

Without graphics there'd be no gameplay.

The two go hand in hand. Gameplay = Graphics

SilentNegotiator1710d ago

You can't ignore performance.

"Graphics" mean a lot more than just aesthetics. It means draw distances, clarity, smoothness of gameplay, etc.

LocutusEstBorg1710d ago

@SilentNegotiator All of which consoles fail miserably at. Rendering and image quality is garbage on console. The exact same code when running on nVidia or AMD drivers on a PC will produce pristing sharp flawless images.

3GenGames1710d ago

Shame this 100% true post gets disagreed. Shows the state of modern gaming, full of pixel counting morons. Give me Super Mario World over almost anything made today by ANYONE. Give me Super Smash Bros. over any fighter. Sad facts. Now graphics that LOOK good are needed. But having the number of textures or polygons affect that? Childish. You shouldn't be gaming, you should be trading graphics cards like they're Pokemon, really, as that's apparently what gets you off.

princejb1341710d ago

whats the point of pretty graphics if the gameplay is boring
crysis has one of the best graphics out there but gameplay is just playing boring
i think we all have played super mario bros or the majority of us at least since nes days and its still fun to this day
the psp had greater graphics than the ds but it lacked in the gaming department
not every game i picked up for psp was fun but there were many to choose from, from the ds with inferior graphics where i could play repetitively for months

"Give me Super Mario World over almost anything made today by ANYONE"

LOL sorry we aren't going back to the 90s hipster, deal with it.

3GenGames1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

Hipster? I've been collecting NES/SNES games for 12 years now, sue me for naming the best Mario game that just so happens to beat out half the games this generation. There's not much compared to the older games in quality at all. Single player is a lost art. Chrono Trigger smashes most of what Square has made the last 7 or so years.

solar1710d ago

you know the community is shitty on a webby when they care more about graphics then gameplay.

SilentNegotiator1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

You know the community is crap when people can't scroll 2 comments down to see the very sensible reason why a comment is being disagreed with.

Aghashie1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

dark souls is not exactly a beauty queen... yet, the game is impressively addictive and entertaining.

crisys 2 is a visually attractive game, but the gameplay is borring.

gameplay is not equal to graphics. some games can achieve both, but if I have to choose, gameplay is far more important.

@somebody above
chrono trigger is an awesome game! but many young gamers out there doesn't even know about it. such a shame... the game is on the android market (and I think is on the apple store too), so, for anyone who haven't played it yet, download it and give it a try. enjoy!

They figure out how to re-route power or whatever to different areas to gain all they can out of these machines.

They are smart.

KyRo1710d ago

Crysis 2 weren't nothing special on consoles. I remember being quite underwhelmed by it after all the hype. There are far better looking games than crysis. I'm not knocking the engine because on PC it's unbelievable but on consoles it was below par.

phantomexe1710d ago

Until halo 4,crysis 2 was the best looking xbox 360 game grafics wise. There was nothing else that looked that good. I'm not saying that to tick anyone off because theres alot of great xbox games. I think uncharted 2 really set a high bench mark which IMO wasn't turned over until halo 4.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

Does it matter? Even if they maxed out consoles it won't look like this.

Even if Naughty Dog pushes ps3 150% it won't look that good.

The guys who you do expect to max out console still can't reach that quality so why does it even matter to anyone?

SonyStyled1710d ago

im trying not to troll here, but in my opinion this is graphically supirior

Aghashie1710d ago

that video tech demo is amazing. now I wonder... when they talk about pushing consoles @100%, they mean the end product will look anywhere close to this? if the answer is NO, then they are trolling. and no, in my opinion, it doesn't matter. :)

DigitalAnalog1710d ago (Edited 1710d ago )

Observe as Crysis 3 would resort to sub-hd and low frame rate to compensate. Does he really think we can get impressed if his game runs like dogshit even if he pushes the most "advanced" tech on consoles? At least Gears/Halo/Uncharted run WELL!
