DSOGaming writes: "Well, we already knew that Crysis 2 and 3 were limited by its consoles counterparts. Still, it’s good to see companies admitting that, and here comes today Cevat Yerli who stated that even Crysis 3 was limited by current-generation consoles."

I guess you can admit something after release date and when its not selling like hot cakes !

kaozgamer1997d ago

yes crytek. use the the current generation consoles excuse as always...

jimbobwahey1997d ago

They really are a whiny bunch over at Crytek. Excuse after excuse for repeatedly putting out crappy and underwhelming games that get blown away by other first person shooters.

They should give up on constantly trying to pimp their rubbish CryEngine too, nobody will touch it since there's so many vastly superior engines out there to use instead.

The engine isn't rubbish. The game design is the problem. Technically, Crysis 3 is great but disappointing in terms of gameplay. Use the CryEngine 3 sdk and you will see how powerful it is. Takes a while to learn how to code for it though.

Crytek are retarted. You cant max out the Cell. I am suprised Sony didnt use it in PS4. All they had to do was unlock one more core, overclock the Cell and we would have been set for another 7 years.

Aggesan1997d ago

PC gamers should be happy we console gamers sponsor the development of the games. Without consoles there would hardly be any AAA games for PC.

im not saying that the graphics is rubbish. yes I know how powerful cryengine 3 is...i've done some work with cryengine before.
graphics may have been limited by current gen but you cant use the same excuse for that boring generic gameplay...

LackTrue4K1997d ago

Crysis 1 is great!!! 2 and 3 are boring!!!!!!!!!!!

They should focuse and use that sick looking engine on a better game, "Timesplitters!!"

frelyler1996d ago


You just tried to call someone RETARDED and you spelled it retarted, I haven't not laughed that hard in a long time. Ah, American educational system, just have to love it.

I'm tired listening to these whiny SOB every time they have a game to sell! Seriously, you can just eff off from the freaking consoles that seems like you are hating on them so much and just stay away! FOREVER! nobody ask for your tech demo on consoles but after being the biggest sellout that you are by making console ports, you're saying your game is limited by the consoles?!

you do know how much it takes for a pc to be able to run your game on its highest setting and you guys are poor at optimization and it has been proven! You made 3 games...THREE games for currrent gen consoles but you're already the whiniest bunch of tools on the market! oh...and btw, consoles don't limit your game to the short 5 hours campaign! you guys were just too busy putting the extra polish on the nanosuit butt and forgot to actually put CONTENTS in your game!

it's not selling like hot cakes cause its not on steam

omi25p1997d ago

Limited? I thought the game was brilliant. I didn't really enjoy crysis 2 but i loved this one. Thought it had a great ending too.

3-4-51996d ago

Every dev was limited by current gen.

And every dev didn't settle for making this crap. We actually got good games from people who were allotted less time and money.

"So if it were PC only, could we have done more things? Certainly, yes.”

So why don't you stop being lazy and give the PC version more? basically admitting that you limit your PC titles isn't the best move to attract fans.

iistuii1997d ago

They have graphics wise. If you play the PC version it looks incredible, & I don't know anybody yet who can honestly max it out, & I mean honestly. Ive a GTX 680 & cant nowhere near max it out. Yet it still looks impressive.

Ashunderfire861997d ago

I got a GTX690 on Alienware with all high settings on Crysis 3 and the highest anti aliasing settings. I don't know but I think I just Max the game out lol!!! And it's running smoothly seriously.

chaos-lockheart1997d ago


that things like $1000 lol, you loaded. I can get a ps4 and like 10 games with that

givemeshelter1997d ago

Exactly. They could have made it the way it is for consoles and given more to the PC format.

DigitalSmoke1997d ago (Edited 1997d ago )

No they limited themselfs by putting all the efford in close texture details.
If they put less attention to the close quarters stuff, they could have easily do an openworld Crysis 1 type shooter.

Just look at Farcry 3.

Hellsvacancy1997d ago (Edited 1997d ago )

I wonder what excuses theyll have next gen?

steve30x1997d ago

They will probably complain that theres not enough ram even though theres plenty of ram available lol

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1997d ago (Edited 1997d ago )

Devs are not gonna make a pc game way way different than consoles. It has happened this whole gen. Excluding bf3 and metro..

Consoles where most of the $$$ at for devs.

Yerli must make lots of console cash to keep holding back pc.

54 million steam users and most games high end games don't even hit 2million sales. Mean while minecraft and diablo sell over 10 million. Sales is what holds pc back not consoles.

Though EA the business pc gamers hate made $250 million from pc shooters and f2p games hence bf3 pushing pc and making C&C f2p. Everything else not much.

Now that next gen consoles are here crytek games may look at good as deep down I hope.

The most successful pc games are cartoony mmos though.
Pc holds back pc also. I think this why valve never push graphics. Portal 2 can run on a calculator = more sales.

If you spend $1000+ on a high end pc just to run console ports then good for you.

My $700 pc is fine running games at 50fps 1650x1050, high settings.

I won't invest much in pc until pc games are 70% of the time pc lead platform.

It wouldn't be surprised to see #Dylila in here to compare it to killzone.

ExCest1997d ago

Valve doesn't push graphics because they WANT their stuff to run on on a microwave.

They also said they were in the process of Source Engine 2.

I don't exactly disagree with you. Just throwing this out.
