Epic Games Founder- Crytek Sacrificing Larger Market, Tangible Visuals Decade Away

SKOAR! writes "...Covering a wide range of subjects Sweeney discusses his early heyday projects and moves to current generation technology powering P.C's and consoles. He cities that although Crysis may be pushing technological barriers for most of the competition, its scalability on current generation consoles remains dwarfed and inconsistent thereby omitting a larger section of the gaming market that is currently thriving on their 360 and PS3s."

The story is too old to be commented.

did they even hear about cryengine 3 and how it is optimised for consoles, sure they haven't made a console game but clearly there is room for that now..

who'd win in a fight between Marcus fenix and the guy from Crysis....

PotNoodle3463d ago

'sif fenix could catch him. But yeah, if he managed to catch him, fenix would probably win.

i am just glad i would be alive to see game graphics go all realistic in the next 10 to 15 years... that makes me smile..

Seems like an old interview. With that said, he's right. The one thing I noticed about the Unreal Engine 3 was that it was highly scalable. Look at Gears 360 & then for the PC, and Gears PC looks 10X better. Nevertheless, Crytek has made or is in the process of a new engine that has currently addressed this issue of scalability with their new graphics engine, CryEngine 3.

Yes, UE3 is scalable, to allow for sharper graphics on PC...but NOT "10x better". Take away the DX10 effects, and some PC-centric shader and AA tricks....and it's the SAME GAME.
