Crysis 3’s graphics only 5 to 10% better on consoles, says Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said that Crysis 3 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 will naturally look better than Crysis 2, but graphically-speaking, it could only gain a five to 10 percent improvement on consoles. (Cevat Yerli, Crysis 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

Don't judge it till you play it, this game looks freaking great on consoles.

Does Crytek talk about anything else other than graphics?
yesmynameissumo  +   1082d ago
You know they're trying to sell an engine too. He has to talk up the graphics. Just let the screens speak for themselves at this point. He'll do the same shit with Homefront too.

Runs like crap,most of the time below 30fps,how the fuck is this playble!Some of you kids that never own a pc and dont know the diference between smooth play at 30fps atleast or super smooth 60fps and above are going indeed to take and feel a big diference when next generation consoles arrive,and actually deliver the minimum of 30fps+ during the entire gameplay that indures a game!It just sad when i see reviewers giving 8 and 9 to games that run like crap,and theres not even a mention or diference in scores between what runs like crap and what run like it should be its like the plate is always the same ,but thats not true;is just another way of miss information to consumers,and a lot of cash flowing in the back!Im not talking just about Crysis in talking gaming in general and between all the existing platforms.I already played Crysis 3 on PC and consoles and for me its not a good game in neither the platforms,because the fundamental piece that is the gameplay is boring.

But they're not talking about gameplay are they? No, they're talking about the only thing they've talked about since trying to whore the Crysis engine out to other devs like Epic does with UE: graphics!
josephayal  +   1081d ago
I totally agree with you, every Crysis game has looked absolutely stunning and has set the bar for what games can look like, consoles and Pc (soon vita)
DeadlyFire  +   1081d ago
Why would they blitz0623? They sell game engine licenses for Cryengine. They market that until they die. Its just like how Cliff did with Gears of war. Like OMGOMG its AWESOMEST Thing ever! was all he ever said about the game to promote the UE3 license selling. :P
Septic  +   1081d ago

What are you on about? Gears was brilliant and the results itself were a testament to the power of the Unreal Engine. Basically, Cliffy let his game do the talking.
Campy da Camper  +   1081d ago
Er, not on my ps3. Jaggies and very low res foliage. Was not impressed. That's not even taking into account the BORING game play. The AI is retarded. They're canned sayings eminded me of 'who's footprints are these?!?!' Over and over and over...

It looks pretty good on consoles, but it still ain't touching Killzone 3; or even 2 for that matter.

The game-play is pretty solid, unlike the last two, so you can't lose in that regard (at least for Hunter mode in multiplayer), but if you're a graphics whore the PC is the way to go on this one if you can afford to up the specs because Crytek can't up the specs on consoles and like most PC devs have yet to learn the words "optimize" and "game-play".

"like most PC devs have yet to learn the words "optimize" and "game-play"."

If by optimize you mean reducing texture quality, AA, AF, making the game linear enough to the point where it becomes a corridor shooter then really there is no need of that sort of optimization. Thats mostly the kind of optimization that goes into console games.

People keep crying about Crysis 1 being unoptimized, when the bare truth is Crysis 1 was rendering so much stuff at once it pretty much killed any hardware thrown at it.

"Trusting anything said by anyone associated in any way with EA was your first mistake."

How does holding on to quotes from HISTORICAL flip-flop'ers equate to to ANYTHING other than calling them out on BS AGAIN???
pixelsword  +   1081d ago
Although not trusting EZ (lol) is now becoming the standard norm, I do agree with yewles1 in that you have to keep on people who talk-up a bunch of bull. Epic did the same thing with their engine but it never actually got any game to look as good as the demos it produced.

(Yes a company is an "it", it's not a "them".

You can fire all of "them" in a company that made the company great, and hire a bunch of incompetent people and what made "it" good is gone. "It" still exists, even though "it" is not as good as "it" once was and those who left are no longer a part of "it").

I gotta stop drinking so much caffeine...

Crysis 3 is sub HD on consoles just as Crysis 2 was.
There are better looking and more technically advanced games than Crytek's games.

The fact is, for consoles, Crytek isn't really all that good.

Personally, I also find their games boring, but that's for a whole different topic I suppose.

meetajhu  +   1082d ago
I hate Crytek's implementation to increase graphics quality while demanding newer hardware. They always tend to add more particle effects and shadows on more objects which is completely unnecessary unless we are going for tour view in the game. They need to make a optimized engine like Alan wake running PC.
Walker  +   1082d ago

piroh  +   1081d ago
he mad because UE will stay mainstream graphics engine for 3rd party devs even after this foolish marketing tactics. he will never admit defeat, just ignore him

Because "graphics" are even easier to quantify than they are to define.
bunfighterii  +   1082d ago
Crysis 2 was an overrated game with decent graphics and not much else to set it apart. Crysis 3 looks like virtually the same game with a couple new weapons.

In all probably not worth the attention it gets.

floetry101  +   1082d ago
Yerli's problem is that he only ever talks about the goddamn visuals. I loved Crysis and Warhead too, but the dude has to realise that he's digging bigger holes when he boasts ONLY about the tech and never the actual content of the game.
CaptainPunch  +   1082d ago
All I hear from Crytek is about graphics -_-
TemplarDante  +   1082d ago
and Gameplay, Yerli? Is it also a 10% improvment? Or is it still boring as hell?
Mogwai  +   1082d ago
I for one am really turned off by their attitude, like the know it all big noter at school you just rolled your eyes at and avoided like the plague. They can rant and rave about graphics but bioshock infinite will show these boys what it means to be truly inspired. Crysis 3? Nope!
talisker  +   1082d ago

lovegames718  +   1082d ago
Some of the ppl on here just lie to lie. Was in, beta and the mp asoect of this game took a big graphical downgrade compared to crysis 2.
lovegames718  +   1082d ago
Stop lying Sony never said it wasnt, going to be, more powerfull then wiiu to the contrary Jack Trenton said it was, going to be a noticeable difference. Stop spewing tht bs ive seen you say it a few times and your lying. Be happy with your current gen wiiu the, teal nxt gen starts tomorrow. Make sure you have tissues for you and your possess theres going to be alot of crying.

ironmonkey  +   1082d ago
stick to console the pc version cant even max crysis for most people right now. i have a gtx 670 intel i5 3570k and 8 gigs of ram and cant even touch max without its frame dipping down to an unstable 20 frames. who plays like that. but i do get 60 frames when i drop all the settings down to low but then theres no purpose of having expensive hardware.
Jdoki  +   1082d ago
These guys talk about graphics a LOT... it's almost as if they forget they need to make a decent game to go with the visuals.

If ever a company was living off past glories, it's Crytek.
Perjoss  +   1081d ago
I tried to play a big of Crysis 1 the other night, yes it is still a fantastic looking game but I totally forgot just how boring the combat is. All the suit stuff is just gimmicky, stealth mode runs out way too fast if you try to move at a decent pace and the armor mode also runs out way too fast.

The weapon you start out with is pretty cool but you run out of ammo for that pretty fast and end up playing 90% of the game with one of those enemy AK type things.

Its a real shame because the graphics, lighting and environments are breathtaking at times.
stone_cold  +   1082d ago
it looks epic on consoles
Tyre  +   1081d ago
It definitely does! The people making the cynical remarks have never f'ing played ANY Crysis game! People in here hating Crytek goes beyond sanity...u guys are so easily fooled by the repeat of the same articles about misquotes from the same f'ing interviews made weeks ago. The interaction between posters of pathetic flamebait articles & reactions by moronic & immature gamers is a site to behold. It is a typical mental state of decay displayed here, or is it just the mentality to act like y'all are better at making games than the developers themselves? What is wrong with u people? This game & Developers deserve praise. Crysis 3 is f'ing amazing on consoles and the gameplay is what u make it is one of the few FPS games that actually let combine and make stuff up...replay value like a motherf. Guess that's why people didn't like Mirror's Edge either, like Crysis u could make stuff up and make ur own climbing also didn't patronise gamers and had a special learning curve... the people who say it's boring lack intiative & imagination or they are just boring themselves or lack the intelligence to comprehend this type of fresh gameplay.
Campy da Camper  +   1081d ago
Lol. Son, take some more Ritilan. I've been gaming since the 80s and played all sorts of different games. I can recognize a good game when I see it. Portal, half life, super Mario, medevil, final fantasy 7, soul reaver, splinter cell 12&3, metal gear, journey you name it I've played it and crysis does not come close to any of these awesome Gamez. Tech demo only.
wiium64  +   1082d ago
ps3 is not more powerful than wii u, just ask need for speed, the graphics are pc textures ps3 does not have the capability to do computer textures wii u does, thus wii u is more powerful than ps3, nintendo haters just can't deal with reality, how sad.

MysticStrummer  +   1081d ago
WiiU has less of a graphical advantage over PS3 than Crysis 3 has over Crysis 2 on consoles. Welcome to the current gen. Next gen will be revealed later today.
hiredhelp  +   1082d ago
Seriously guys dont go by cevat yeli. Hes a CEO NOT A DEV hes been running his mouth doing PR work in my oppinion from a crytek fan a blatant pain in the backside needs to close his trap let the devs that work and know how to code design and port games talk.
So please make your own choice about the game when its out.
TemplarDante  +   1081d ago
He isnt a dev, he isnt a CEO either. He is a joke.
They WILL port every game to next gen unoptimized and inefficient and scream "we hav MaxEd teh consolz likez two yars ago!!, more powar !!!"
And then... 1st party devs for Sony and Microsoft release games that blow Crysis to hell.
Crysis 2 and 3 are NOT open world, Its a smoke and mirrors corridor game.

PS, If the game shipped broken, you WILL NOT get support for patches.
The mods abandoned Crysis 2 and 3 will be the same. You have a better chance of getting blood out of a stone than a patch that fixes this broken $60 turd.

I love all the hate these kids on this site have for crytek ? Let playstation talk about killzone and thats all u hear is graphics and they game is complete and utter garbage. Re-guardless, it all boils down to is, thousands of people like myself enjoy the crysis franchise and are playing the multiplayer as we speak so if u hate the game so much just stay away from the articles and go troll somewhere else. Crytek is a well respected comp that hired 75% of vigil after thq ruined hundreds of lives give them the benefit of the doubt i dont see other companys stepping in. Alot of little boys on this website are just made they cant afford all the good games so there opinions are easily swayed dont judge games unless u have played them period ...
tachy0n  +   1081d ago
faith in humanity +1

why? because finally i found a comment that is not coming from another playstation sheep in N4G.

"dont judge games unless u have played them period"

you are right man! ^

everybody praised uncharted a lot here on N4G, which inspired me to check it out by myself, i played a bit of each uncharted, it was boring as hell including the PSVita version.

Crytek does the tech demos to show what their engine is capable of, while most just talk BS....
