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. (Crysis 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

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

"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.
LocutusEstBorg  +   1156d ago
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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?

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!

Agree. This is typical for trying to get players all hyped for the game. Using 99% of the Xbox's capabilities doesn't mean much. If the system remained relevant for the next 3 years, someone else would find ways to compress and use the hardware more efficiently. It could be argued that first generation releases probably used just as much of the system. Just not as well.
Reverent  +   1155d ago
Exactly! Hell, the reason Crysis 1 started the whole, "Can it run Crysis?" meme for PC rigs, is because people THOUGHT Crysis was too powerful for anyone's machine, when in reality, Crysis 1 was just horribly optimized. I mean, why else would Crysis 2 run better maxed out than Crysis 1 maxed out? Exactly, lol.

Cause Peter Molineux was feeling so loneley. Cervat and his previous statement: "we maxed out the consoles (this time for realz)" and his Crytek studio are just talking bullshit as usual.

Would you just shut up and work harder, we saw what maxing out the consoles meant for crysis 2.
Reverent  +   1155d ago
Another problem of theres... NO ONE even cares if their graphics look PERFECT on consoles! If people REALLY cared about nothing but graphics, they'd spend a ton of money on a good gaming PC. Consoles are designed for convenience, and when it comes down to the average gamer, graphics really don't mean much. Just look at freaking Call of Duty... The graphics haven't improved in YEARS, and people still buy that crap up simply because of how smooth, addicting, and accessible it is. I'm not even a fan of CoD, but it's easy to see that the next CoD game will sell literally millions upon millions more than Crysis 3.

same here, played on ps3 and got bored maybe two 3rds the way in, plus the framerate felt like it was in the low 20's most the time, online had worse p2p servers them cod..

@ hllsvacancy,

I totally agree. They did say the same thing about Crysis 2. Crysis 2 looked great, but nowhere near as good as some other games that released around the same time (or even before) Crsis 2.. For what it'sworth, I think both Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 look better graphically than Crysis 2.. The downloadable console port of the original Crysis looked better than Crysis 2 imo!

WiiUsauce  +   1155d ago
agreed. In all of these current FPS games, Halo excluded, you fight the same one guy over and over and over again. I bought Black Ops 2 and it's extremely boring. you just enter a room shoot 10 generic guys, proceed to the next room, shoot another 10 generic enemy soldiers, there's a set piece explosion, then you shoot 10 more generic guys, rinse and repeat.
I used to play Medal of Honor on the original PlayStation, and I revisited the game a few months ago and that almost 15 year old first person shooter has more fun enemies to fight than the majority of current gen shooters.
You can shoot a guy in the leg and he'll stumble around for a bit and look at you and slowly raise his gun at you. It's pretty funny and entertaining to watch, because there's like 10 different ways to kill the enemy in that game. they'll even throw grenades back at you, they'll shoot at you even when they're down on the ground.
in most big current FPS games like CoD and Crysis, you just shoot an enemy a few rounds to the torso, and they're dead.
MastaPiff  +   1155d ago
ROFL!!! They better work on optimizing & using the PS3 more effiently (cuz the Xbox been maxed LOL..., sorry it was just so EZ!)

I organize my demos in a demo folder on my PS3. What's funny is the PS3 Crysis 2 demo (which barely worked & only for 24hrs. before getting shut down by Crytek cuz they wouldn't fix it) is in a seperate folder titled "FAIL!" It's also the only demo in that folder. I keep it as a reminder to be wary of buying games from dev's that run their mouth, when they got work to do (and don't get done= fail'd!).

I'm not say don't check for Crysis 3, just wait til the reviews AT LEAST! before dropping your loot on this game. I picked up Crysis 2 used for cheap & while it was fun, there was not many ppl playing online just 4 months later. Not to mention overpriced DLC (with nobody playing it!? WTF!?) & a bunch of problems that weren't fixed in singleplayer...

I love the best parts of the Crysis series but Crytek makes sure to include plenty of crappy parts also. The more this view spreads they more likely they are to get it right & assure us these issues are addressed... (fingers crossed while preparing for the worst here based on Yerli still shoveling hype, ppl DON'T EAT IT!!!)

KZ3 looks worse and actually plays worse too. It got turned into a bad COD clone with too many dumb turret segments and that hide in the grass grotto/jungle gameplay was terrible too. The KZ3 AI was poor too. Oh look a sniper giving you three seconds to shoot him so he can fall off of a ledge. Meh.

Crysis 2 was a mixed bag. A lot of the subway parts were disappointing and the end in central park barely made any sense.

But it was a much better single player experience than Killzone 3.
Sykoticz  +   1155d ago

Funny how you have so many people who disagree with you but yet you are 100% correct.

One thing that pure console gamers do not get is that Crytek's engines are designed for Computers not consoles if you look back at when Crysis 1 came out that was around the same time as the 8800 ultra and even then you needed 2 of them to run the game maxed out.

So not only have Crytek looked at the console market and tryed to get into it(and failed) they have also had to downgrade there engines so they can run on these consoles.

Yes killzone looks good and uc3 and Last of us and God of war 3 but they ARE MADE JUST FOR THE Ps3

Maybe consoles wise...but otherwise no. I loved both KZ2 and KZ3 (platinum'd this one in fact), and completely agree that they looked breathtaking. But when you compare it to the likes of Crysis 1 (when it runs properly anyways), Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3 (all 3 running on PC of course), you can see that it doesn't stack up. But as I mentioned, if you just limit it to consoles, then KZ2 is up there near the top.

When he said consoles are maxed out, I'm pretty sure he meant the Xbox 360 is maxed out. We all know they can't develop multiplatform games and make one version way better than the other. It would hurt there sales. If you look at the last of us you could understand my point. If crisis was a ps3 exclusive it would look better because the wouldn't have to worry about making the other version (360) look worse. Just for the record this only refers to consoles.

We've heard the same thing last year, yeah. To be honest, now something makes me think that this statement is actually true. With next generation of consoles coming out next year it's likely that the last drops of current gen consoles' power is squized out completely.
And yeah, fanboys should stop saying the same thing (potential of CELL etc.) over and over again.

Crysis 1 max out the ps3 with 15fps,Crysis 2 had an average of 20 fps on ps3.
Both games had blurred textutes,popups and whatnot.

So C.Yerli stop this maxout bullshitting,and try a different approach in marketing your games.
sourav93  +   1156d ago
Crysis 1 had 15fps and Crysis 2 has 20fps? You sure about that? I own both on the PS3, and sure, the fps isn't buttery smooth, but it was more than playable - throughout the game for Crysis 2, but for Crysis 1, there were some drops during heavy scenes. But I personally would say that they both had an average fps of 24+.

I don't trust his word, last time because crytek focused and "Maxed Out" consoles the PC got a lame looking game and the consoles got a mess too, even crysis 1 looked better.
Now crysis 3 looks amazing on PC and I'm expecting the console version of Crysis 3 to look like Far Cry 3 with a worse framerate since Crytek sucks at optimization.

Not buying this even if it looks like CGI, the gameplay looks kind of generic

If you are required to own the best PC hardware in order to play Crysis 3 on max settings then what Crytek are saying is nothing but the truth.

This game literally looks like a next-gen game, everyone all over the net is saying that. TLOU has all the traits of a current-gen game, nothing about it looks next gen.

Crysis 3 has massive open levels with the best most photo-realistic foliage system the industry has ever seen. The trees and leaves in Crysis 3 are ACTUAL GEOMETRY, they aren't just textures like in TLOU (which is more evident in the new trailer)

Everything in Crysis 3 is happening in REAL-TIME, the last time I checked TLOU doesn't have real-time GI.

TLOU has nothing on this! Why don't you fanboys just give it a rest already, have you not you heard that this gen is ending? are you that desperate to cling on to your dear PS3's.

Who is comparing TLOU to crysis 3? First of all, TLOU runs on a machine which is 7 years old, and for that it looks brilliant. One thing that might be true is that TLOU might look better than console version of Crysis 3. But you can't compare it to PC. And I'm not saying that PC is God and consoles suck, I'm just using logic and saying that of course a game running on 7 year old tech won't look as good as a game running on the hottest PC out there. And anyone who says otherwise really has clouded vision and mind.

And how do you explain Uncharted 3 beating Crysis 2 as the game with best graphics last year? hum, maybe because graphics is not all about rendering and tech, but art style and visuals, as well as animations play a huge role too.

There is no game out there with more believable characters than TLOU. Those animations, face expressions and voice over are top notch. Crysis just hides everything behind a mask and armor just like every FPS.

PC versions are never taken into account and Crysis 2 looked worse than crysis 1, and it was a linear game while Crysis was more far cry like.

"If you are required to own the best PC hardware in order to play Crysis 3 on max settings then what Crytek are saying is nothing but the truth."

That makes no sense, but I'm sure you think it does. smh

crysis 2 was a let down graphically and gameplay wise, not to say that crysis was any better in its gameplay...

but the fact is Crytek isnt using the system as optimal on the ps3, as other PS3 exclusive developers such as GG , SP and ND. They are heads and shoulders above the competition, not even close.

I also do not care for crysis games as they generally produce the most generic of shooters.

well they dont want to look like liars again so they thought they would mention games not as high up the graphic scale and hope to beat them, maybe they can perhaps get a game half as good looking as uncharted this time instead of the steaming pile of cow poo they made last time. my pc was sad when i installed the last game.

I didn't realise developers still pulled this bull, Naughty Dog said it best last generstion;

People think of systems as glasses and ask: “how full is the glass”. Unfortunately, that isn’t how it works. Any developer who gives you a “percent of system used” answer is blowing smoke. The truth is that every developer uses 100% of the systems power on every game. Some just get more out of that 100% than others. And game after game, we ALL get more out of systems than we did on the previous title. Think of it this way. If the system is a glass, some developers pour in rocks till the glass overflows and then call it quits. They would claim that they use 100% of the systems space. And it is true that no more rocks fit. Some will even put in a rock too many and the game plays slow or runs funny. But there is still some space left for smarter developers. They pour pebbles into the cracks left by the rocks, and they get more into the glass. Then they call it 100% full. But some Developers will then pour in sand, to fill the cracks between the pebbles. They get even more out of the system, yet it is still just 100% full. Some developers go the extra distance, and they pour in water. Then the glass is truly full, right? Sure, but just for this title, because some of the rocks can be replaced with pebbles that do the same thing, if you work hard at it. And some of the pebbles can be made into sand. And some sand can be pressed to water. No developer ever gets a glass filled with only water, no developer has that much time, so no developer truly fills the glass. We just get more and more out of the 100%."

Naughty Dog is probably the only developer I trust now when they say they're going to do something, because they always deliver.
