GDC was packed with many announcements like Onlive, Stardock's Goo, and the next Zelda DS game. However, some would argue that the commercialization of the Game Developer's Conference is leading to less effective dialogues between developers and actual developments that change and positively influence their work.
Fortunately, Crytek came to the rescue and announced Cryengine 3, the next iteration of their award-winning game development platform. This turned many heads at the conference, as it was the first time that we saw Crytek's tech running on consoles since the first Cryengine was used for the Instincts spin-offs of Far Cry.
What does it mean for developers and us gamers?
