CVG: Crytek on next-gen, piracy and free-to-play
"Crysis 1 was estimated to have 15-20 million users, but we sold maybe 2.5-3 million units" Remember all those people justifying themselves for ripping GTA4 because it wasn't optimised for pc? Who now complain R* doesn't give them any info on GTA5 for pc, who even demand an optimised version because then they will buy it? Crysis 1 was optimised for pc's that didn't even excist, and still those numbers. On console there's also piracy, just recent with Gears, but it's never a situation where the vast majority refuses to pay and goes on stealing it, only a small minority. I heard Crysis 3 was good. Will thieves stop stealing when products get better? No sir. I wouldn't want to be a developer, creating something beautifull & worth the money only to see the masses steal it. And demand you keep supplying them...
Crytek have said this how many times now? Why are major websites regurgitating the same drivel over and over.Why is this stuff getting approved?
They are a bit of a broken record with this statement over and over again... We get it- there isn't much you can do for this generation! Didn't we hear that when Crysis 2 came out as well? I'd be more interested if they stopped focusing on graphics and moved on to another issue.
