Crytek: PS3/360 “so behind the curve” but surprised devs can squeeze some more out of them

"Crytek are known for developing video games that push the hardware limit. They have developed a few franchises in the past but the most well known out of them is obviously Crysis. The game pushed gaming PCs to the limit and it coined a new term in the industry: Can it run Crysis? In 2011, Crytek released the fantastic Crysis 2 and later on added DX11 support although initially the PC version was not up to the mark." (Crysis 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah it doesnt look better at all crysis 2 with the direct x11 update and the high res texture patch looks crazy. But i wouldnt expect a console to keep up with a PC with 3 or more graphics cards in it. The gpu in the ps3 and xbox are so old my sisters old 4870 crossfire build graphics looks way better than consoles.

The problem with Crytek is that they're not good at optimization. Even the original Crysis still has graphical issues on CURRENT hardware. That's pretty sad.
OneAboveAll  +   1152d ago
You obviously understood what he said and meant so it really doesn't matter now does it?

I agree with Hellsvacancy, the Crysis games are just generic shooters with no substance. All they are good for is showcasing graphics on the most poorly un-optimized game engine to date.

Dude stop raging at devs who can't hear you and get a life.

Farcry 3 doesn't look better than this.
or can do this.

There so called "sucky" games sold million each time and crysis 3 will sell millions.

They are succeeding in f2p. Warface is actually a good game.

These guys made an engine and have caught up despite the Unreal Engine success.

Any other console game have so many real time effects going on?

"Crytek has DX11 graphics running in Crysis 3 on PS3, Xbox 360"

If that is true have other console devs done it.

Cry more if you need to you only talk like that becuz you have seen people do it on n4g before.

A next gen demo of an rpg shown running a two year old laptop.

These make games so they have a right to talk game creation. Stick to your level of knowledge and worry about pressing power, start, R1.

I would bet $50 you have a copy of black ops 2 while talking sh!t.

Don't care about agrees like u.

Go ahead talk more as they sell million why waste ur time with non facts?

Wow! The PS4 will likely be announced in something like a month or so, after the holidays..

And it is still blasphemy to say a pc has better graphics the a ps3 / 360..

I hate to throw logic back into everyone's windows but its a no brainer that ps3/360 are behind the curve.

The only thing interesting about this article is that Crytek is saying developers can still squeeze a lot into something that is so far behind to still make them feel current.

Far Cry 3 is full of screen tearing, it looks really bad and kind of ruins the game for me. Crysis 2 had none on the PS3 version. Killzone 1 & 2 and Rage have no screen tearing either and they both look incredible.

If your getting loads of screen tearing in far cry 3 you are playing a copy of it i havent seen before.
pixelsword  +   1152d ago
Yes, the PS3 and 360 are behind the curve.

The curve isn't that vast, though; You can only thing about one game that defined PC gaming this gen, and it is Crysis.

Not crysis 2

Probably Crysis 3 though.

Other than that, the differences aren't to the point where everyone's going ape-scat over the PC's graphics like last gen, even.

I think the people who are acting enraged are just looking at snippets of interviews like the quote in the title and interpreting that as an attack on the consoles. If this was Crytek's actual position, they could just delay the console release until next year or skip it entirely. Instead, they're attempting to use tech in Crysis 3 that has never been attempted on consoles before, which seems like a good thing to me. I certainly appreciated it when Team ICO put in the effort to mimic HDR rendering with Shadow of the Colossus on PS2.

I've seen interviews from Crytek guys admitting that they wished they could have pushed things further in Crysis 2 and that they are really trying to impress gamers with the improvements they've made in Crysis 3. There's also the fact that they put forth the considerable effort and investment to make CryEngine3 compatible with consoles. The idea that they are against consoles just doesn't square with what they've been doing. But if some want to instead just make assumptions based off of a provocative title on N4G, I guess that's what they'll do.

Think of it as me showing contempt towards game devs who have done jack-sh*t for gaming besides complain about the platforms they have to work with.

Also not feeling to good towards the gamers who defend Crytek and their resource hog title when it was a resource hog. It doesn't matter that years after the fact of releasing a single game which required massive upgrades to play on minimum settings they "fixed" the problem, its that they caused and further highlighted a problem with the PC gaming industry. Namely that it was pricing and upgrading itself out of existence.

Now they're trying to do things as cheaply and low-end as possible, have even moved into the competing console market, and yet companies like Crytek are still bit*ching that the market should cater to them instead of the other way around. Nevermind that they've yet to actually do anything of actual substance. Just make pretty looking FPS.

And not really being much of a FPS fan, first person perspective games in general which means I've largely been SOL for much of this gen, I have even less reason or want to touch a Crytek game.

If you and others like them all well and good, just please get off their co*k for long enough to realize that by the sales of their games they aren't the end all and be all of gaming.

and Crysis 1 PC looks better than FarCry 3 PC and Crysis 2 PC; can't speak for Crysis 3 yet for obvious reasons.
ThanatosDMC  +   1152d ago
It really does. They downgraded with Crysis 2. I was hoping Far Cry 3 would look as great as the jungles of Crysis 1 on Ultra... they have the same flora in consoles. Maybe a mod can make it look like a crazier jungle.
Eyesoftheraven  +   1152d ago
Except for the rocks. Crysis 1 rocks look terrible at times, but the water, vegetation, and physics look consistently superior when set to Very High.

Far Cry 3 has better rocks, fire, gun models, character models, and vehicle handling. Plus you can freaking fly (err, glide with style). Far Cry 3 also has the better story and is a lot more fun than Crysis 1 or 2 overall. The plants in Far Cry 3 are a lot stiffer and there are no destructible structures. The water is also relatively very static and animated looking, rather than organic & dynamic. Crysis 1 water is still better than any water I've seen in a game since; when a bullet hits the water in Crysi 1, it actually ripples and creates mist (though the ripples don't interact with one another).

That isn't to talk bad about Far Cry 3 on any platform; I think it's an amazing game and gave over 30 hours in it already. Just wish it wasn't fundamentally limited to what the consoles can do.

But do you think the console version of Crysis 3 will be able to match up to the console version of Far Cry 3? Keep in mind that FC3 is truly open-world, and I doubt we'll get the same amount of freedom in Crysis 3, going by their previous games.

Crysis 1 was too open world thats why alot of people hated it. I loved that game played it on max graphics. And i had the best time just messing with the A.I sniping them sneaking up on them and just just screwing around and not playing the game lol.
Imalwaysright  +   1152d ago
@ greenpowerz you're missing out on one of the best FPS ever made. Take an aspirin or something and go play FC3. After you finish it go play Crysis 1/2 and you'll realize how crappy those games are. Ubisoft Montreal > Crytek. They took Crytek's franchise and took it to a whole different level. A level that i doubt Crytek will ever reach.

Crysis 2 was not bad but also not good for me. I consider a game good when there is replay value in it. Once I finished Crysis 2 I never felt the compulsion of playing it again. I think the problem with it is that it's on rails and it get's too predictable because of that. I like graphics but without great gameplay a game isn't fun for me.
Pain_Killer  +   1152d ago
FarCry 3 is inferior than Crysis 1 graphically.

Far Cry 3 has no Physics.

Far Cry 3's environment is static compared to that of Crysis 1. You shot a plant or tree with a bullet, the leaves would sway in a realistic manner.

Crysis's water is more realistic than Far Cry 3, It was built using dynamic parallax occlusion mapping supported by DX10 cards available that generation.

The Textures are gorgeous and far more HD than Far Cry 3.

Far Cry 3 in terms of graphics (i again say) Far Cry 3 graphically is just a inferior mod of Crysis 1. Story is better in certain cases but im more of a Sci-Fi dude so you can take a hint.

And yet FC3 is a masterpiece and its one of those games that will be remembered years from now. Crysis 1/2 were released a few years ago and are only remembered for being glorified tech demos, not for being good games. Case and point your own comment. Graphics this, physics that.

When im playing FC3 the last thing on my mind is how plants react to a bullet. Im often too busy running away from a bear just to suddendly see a tiger in front of me and thinking that after all that running im gonna die when the tiger decides to go after the bear giving me enough time to get the hell as far away from them as i can. That is what i want in my games. I could care less about plants reacting to bullets.

@Imalwaysright We are talking about graphics superiority here in which Crysis 1 is a better game compared to FarCry 3.

They put in animals in the game which can be approached dynamically but left the key part of the jungle (Plants, Environment) static.

And yes, to you it may not matter but the dozens of comments above and below us prove that graphics and performance of any specific title may it be current gen or next gen is a point to ponder by gamers.

Crytek may not be the best game developer but they are an excellent game engine developer. Few companies can make an engine as good as CryEngine 3. Plus they provide the sdk for free. Here, they are not talking about game design but the technical challenge of getting the most out of hardware as limited and dated as 360 and PS3. Far Cry 3 is an excellent game and has great graphics but overall, it does not look as good as Crysis 3 will.

So you want them to lie and spread nonsense about these consoles having some special "untapped" power that has yet to be unleashed? this isn't propaganda or bs PR, this is REAL PR!

They're just saying it the way it truly is, and I like how suddenly all these PS3 fanboys are using FC3 as a counter argument whenever Crytek mentions anything about their technical & graphical prowess.

FC3 looks like shit compared to Crysis 3, this site has to be the first site I've come across where people are saying FC3 looks better than Crysis 3, it's obvious you people are only saying that because you feel offended for absolutely no reason.

What's there to be offended about anyway? if Crytek maxed out the PS3/360 so what, ah! because ND haven't said it's maxed out then they're lying right? are you people lemmings? can't you think for yourselves.

Technically Crytek could use CE3 to make TLOU better looking than what ND have done, but you guys wouldn't know anything about engines would you since you're too busy bending down for Sony.

The only reason I'm bringing up graphics is because that's all you guys ever talk about anyway, and whenever you're beloved exclusives are out done you guys start rambling on about how it's all about the gameplay & story even though most PS3 exclusives lack good stories and have bad gameplay.

You guys must've been traumatised after reading this article seeing as how many of you guys overreact and post nonsensical jargon with your emotions running wild.

He's not trashing current consoles like the title implies, he's just saying you can't get the PC experience "graphically" on consoles which is understandable on systems that came out in 2005 and 2006.

I just think Crytek should work on releasing Crysis 3 for the PS4 and next Xbox and leave this gen that they seem to have some issues with.
Hicken  +   1152d ago
But it seems like the only thing they ever talk about is the PC experience "graphically." Their games aren't exactly known for having memorable stories or innovative gameplay, and when it comes to consoles, their releases aren't really very high up the list, graphically.

They keep saying the same thing- "Consoles are maxed out"- as if it's the only thing that matters; meanwhile, they ignore all the other important aspects of a game that should be improved upon.

Frankly, it's gotten annoying.
Ducky  +   1152d ago
Their older games like FarCry1 and Crysis1 did have innovative gameplay since they were more 'open' games and gave the player some level of freedom.
Crysis1's story wasn't all that great, but the reveal of the aliens and snow transition was a memorable moment.

This was before/around the time of CoD4 though. Unfortunately, Crytek seems to be following CoD's formula now by making the typical linear shooters. Either they've lost their vision, or in the pursuit of having pretty visuals on consoles, they've decided to sacrifice the open level design.

I agree about the story in Crytec games being their weaker point but they have interesting ideas that are able to carry the game, Crysis sometimes just seems like a muscle flexing competition "mine are bigger than yours thus making me better"

But then again story never seems to be their real focus they just want to make people go “oooh that looks amazing” and on the PS3 and 360 unlike other developers they haven’t been able to do that. This is why I think Crysis 3 should be a release title on the next gen systems, then maybe they can impress us with their fireworks.

Of course what makes this especially odious is that Crytek came into consoles in an attempt to supplant Epic's position, and they've largely either only complained about working on the PS3 and 360, or they've been reversing themselves about the complaints.

The least - the very least - I can say about Epic is that though UE3 was broken and incomplete at the start of this gen, at least they shut up and did their best to make it work where they could.

were saying Heavy Rain isn't a game and was just quicktime events. Tectile Games used the exact formula Quadractic Dreams used with Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy. The fact is that Walking Dead uses QTE too, but that doesn't come up at all. I guess it's because Walking Dead is available for Xbox360/ps3. I guess all the unwarranted hatred towards Heavy Rain (by 360 crowd) turned out to be just jealousy and envy. The hypocrisy continues. But Walking Dead is enjoyable.

Heavy Rain most certainly is under appreciated by gaming at large. Both HR and Walking Dead suffered from less than ideal "controls" but being honest both rose above the controls to be games that should be played. I slagged HR early on for its controls but I will be honest in saying its story and emotional drama were really quite good. Makes me look forward to Beyond Two Souls.

IMO cryteck has always been "behind the curve" in every aspect besides graphics.

Hey crytec, Is the ps3 or xbox 360 so behind the curve that it cant run you complex AI where the enemies cant even go up 5 stairs. Is that the reason that pursuing enemies in crysis 2 stopped in a clump at the bottom of some stairs when chasing me?

I don't care how good it looks, the gameplay is dull, AI is awful and the weapons feel about as powerful as peashooters!!!

Then stfu and come back to PC and start expanding the scope of your game instead of limiting it on dated hardware if you are so bothered by it.

Thats assuming its the consoles holding them back, and not the publisher making them go more linear COD style.

If its the former, then they absolutely should just forget about consoles. But if its the latter then they're fucked either way...

Far Cry 3 = open world > Crysis 3 = not open world

If the next gen consoles can look as good as some of the tech trailers I've seen from new games coming out to pc then we are all in for a real treat. They may say that we won't see a big jump current gen to next gen visually but if they come close to the in game tech trailers I've seen we are going to be floored.

Another trash talk from Crytek.

I'm tired of "max out" or "push to the limit"

How about saying "optimize" for console and PC?

Enough with squeezing the consoles!! Everybody's talking about squeezing things out of consoles for the last two years.

It's getting close to sexual harassment now, stop squeezing them!!!!

I always think its funny that people take offense to a dev saying PC is lightyears beyond a console. It is simply a fact.

When a console is launched the hardware inside is already at least 2 years old compared to the most modern pc. THrow in a 7 year console life span and by the end you are left with something that is not even comparable to what can be seen on a modern pc.

Don't get me wrong I have a PC and a gaming PC, I just don't understand why people are so shocked that the pc is lightyears ahead by now.. Just think about how old the hardware in 360 / ps3 is.

" I just don't understand why people are so shocked that the pc is lightyears ahead by now"

Not really , it seems more like some people are tired of the dead horse being beaten constantly . It's starting to looks like necrophilia .

"pc are more powerful" DUUUHHH . OK everyone gets it for the most part let's move on .

In the meantime crysis 2 was a mediocre sequel , and they are already autocongratualing themselves for finding some middle ground between crysis 1 and a mediocre crysis 2 ? Wow ... that does look appealing /s
