I expect this engine to be drastically superior to its Xdone counter-part.

But...but.. they have TV.
Army_of_Darkness  +   453d ago
It's to bad I don't watch TV. Plus, I'm not a reality TV fan, which takes up like 80% of the shows out now....

unless Xbone gets exclusivity to the walking dead and spartacus in HD, that console ain't kinect-ing to anything in my house;-)

there is some opportunity, but i´m afraid all multiplats on CryEngine3 will look the same on all platforms due to financial reasons unless developers get a passion to make the best out of the best
AznGaara  +   453d ago
It may look the same, but framerate could be better.
Blackdeath_663  +   453d ago
agreed with @AznGaara even if multiplats are made to look equal on both systems frame rate is one area ps4 will have the advantage like jonathon blow said there may be a situation where games are running at 60fps on ps4 and 30fps on xbone. it's way way too early to confirm any of this is true or just how much of an edge the ps4 will have but looking at the current confirmed info we have that appears to be a likely scenario. MS is still tweaking clock speeds it appears whether they reduce it and play it safe or increase it and increasing the risk of over heating and failure rates we have yet to see.

How was an official statement supporting PS4 the best they can turn into giving PS4 more power in this article and later claimed to mean XB1 will be left behind with inferior versions of the engine by Sony fans LMAO.
MRMagoo123  +   453d ago
Xbone is inferior in every way so who cares.
FITgamer  +   452d ago
@MrMagoo123 not true. The X1 will definitely be a better spy and thief.
waltercross  +   452d ago
To be fair, XBO Will be a better Cable Box /S
FITgamer  +   452d ago
@waltercross i would of said that too, but it can't play tv without an actual cable box.

On behalf of all feminists...*snicker*, I say that's super-duper-sexist and you need to be censored so much.

Will they also have a switch to make your game insta-boring?
papashango  +   453d ago
They updated it. It's an always-on feature now.

PS fanboys "Oh yeah, we are gona get some sweet looking games on the CryEngine 3!"

BoneBox fanboys "....look how great our controller is!"

I really reall doubt, Playstation fans even have Cryteck engine in back of there mind...coming to E3?!
Tatsuya  +   453d ago
Beautiful graphics is just not 'the thing' anymore
I just hope the devs that will be utilizing this game engine will develop overall better quality and great gameplay for the PS4 games!

I think CryEngine 3 needs to be far better optimized. I thought Crysis 3 looked like crap on consoles with slow frame rate while games like Uncharted series, Killzone series, and The Last of Us are superior far as quality and optimization goes.
claudionmc  +   453d ago
That's because of a 2006 hardware... No point of comparison between 220Gflops and 1.84Tflops
Gamer1982  +   453d ago
Thats because cryengine was built to run on machines with 8gbs RAM and not 512mbs RAM. What they did on consoles was nothing short of a miracle and that goes for most console developers.. Saying that there programming for PC is lazy..
windblowsagain  +   453d ago
I think the engine is fantastic, but many other types of games need to be done with it.

Crysis needs to end now.

Make a new ip please.
DeadlyFire  +   453d ago
They did buy Homefront. That is their new IP. Well there is also Warface coming to all platforms at some point I expect with this new gen.
Koyes  +   453d ago
So much emphasis on graphics leads to a severe decline in gameplay. Crisis being a prime example
mrmancs  +   453d ago
Will look better than the PC version.....
gazgriff2k12  +   453d ago
what pc i hope your not talking about my laptop lol
Wizziokid  +   453d ago
I just hope multiplatforms games use both console to their advantage, no holding back the PS4 because of the reduced power of the X1 please.
DeadlyFire  +   453d ago
Gameplay wise they should both be identical with abilities, but GPU wise PS4 likely will scale and enhance or add frames without even trying.

Will cyrsis 4 look/run better on ps4 compared to xbone that is the question. developers have tried to get games looking the same. xbox 360 multi-platform games were slightly better this gen mostly because of xbox 360 being used as the lead platform and devs having trouble with ps3 architecture. next gen ps4 is going to be more powerful and easy to develop for and because of x86 architecture pc may be the lead platform next gen. unless devs go with xbone as lead and port to ps4 and pc, meaning pc and ps4 exclusives will outshine multiplatform games. ITS either xbone with crap ports or underwhelming multiplatform games

I hope it's utilized to harness PS4s extra power over One.
ElementX  +   453d ago
I haven't see so much blatant trolling by everyone, ever. I know the One looks/sounds pretty bad at this point (I'm buying PS4 and don't even own a 360 anymore) but I think it's time people grow up. Yeah the PS3 got trolled when it was released however not by everyone all the time. This is really getting out of hand, nobody even tries to have a decent conversation, they just troll.

CryEngine 3 has magical fairy dust in the code that can only be activated by PS4.
