CVG: EA's bumped up the release window for Crysis 2 to 'autumn 2010'.
Enjoy it peeps. TGSI
hmm, question is whether Crytek have been able to pull off the console versions. I'm more interested in console (because I dont like to put pressure on my PC unnecessarily. and I prefer playing on my HDTV w/ 7.1 surround support with controllers etc etc) But if push comes to shove, i may skip this and wait for the PC version to cheapen out. I loved the first Crysis (and Warhead was ALOT better than the first).. but none of them had great replay value in my book. The MP wasn't too great.
The PC version will far surpass the console versions so it's the safe bet if you have a PC capable of running it.
Think ps3 only does up to 5.1 audio but not sure... maybe with Hdmi.. 720p for crysis 1 is fine.. but after 1200p it's meh!!
ps3 does 7.1
@Xfanboy- The PS3 supports 7.1, but only a handful of games have taken advantage of it, unfortunately.
Oh, I will!!!
Since my graphics card won't run this smoothly (Geforce 8600GTS, 256mb), I'll buy it on PS3. It will still look amazing.
i don't think your graphics card will run anything smoothly! time for an upgrade, your 3 generations + behind
And you're good to go. : )
Well, it's on a Dell XPS M1530, which was top of the line 2 years ago. I managed to run the first Crysis on low settings, and can run The Witcher and Mass Effect both on medium settings, but I agree that if I could upgrade the graphics card in my laptop, I would do so.
Buy the asus g73jh-a1 laptop if you have the money nothing comes close to it for the price and it's using an ATI HD5870 1G GDDR5 graphics card. You can find it for around $1600-$1700 at a couple online retailers like xoticpc and excaliberpc. The only other laptops that have similar specs sell for almost $4000. Now if you don't have the money LOL get it for the PS3 or xbox 360. I'll be getting it for the PS3 since the wife won't let me get this laptop, lol you here that whip crack.
I can't wait to see some more gameplay footage and then some reviews especially when it comes to the multiplayer as Crysis Wars sucked and EA has yet to provide an online experience that has as minimal lag as CoD, Killzone 2, Resistance 2 and Uncharted 2.
Thanks for this. I have already paid for this game (along with Medal of Honor and Killzone 3 of course)
Close the windows! Its getting cOLD! we knew this shit already.
Going head to head with Halo:Reach, Socom 4 and CoD:Black Ops. Gonna be extremely interesting.
Don't thin it'll be competing with SOCOM. That isn't a mainstream game at all. Those that dig the "extreme" nature of that game will buy it regardless. Please don't mistake that as me saying SOCOM is better or will sell more than anything. I am saying that it is more of a niche shooter. Its sales will be the same as they would be anyway.
OHH YEAH! sorry for caps :P
The PC version will far surpass the console versions.If Every1 Hav A Very High Reqiurment Pc.Without It Never Surpass The Console.Not All Guys Hav A High Requirment Pc Like Me.
You don't even need a high spec PC to run the first game. A 2.6Ghz dual-core, 2GB RAM, 8800GT was all that was needed for 1080p, 30FPS and high settings. Not exactly top of the line these days. Consoles are easily outdone, and seeing as Crysis 2 will likely be less demanding than the first, running the game well will be a walk in the park.
I Hav The Same Requirements As U Hav Except For THE RAM And Processor My Ram Is Abut 4GB And The Processor Is 2.8Ghz Core2Duo.Still Crysis Doesnt Com At Max Settings.Hav To Make It Normal Setting.I Dont No Y Maybe I dIDNT cHANGE mY pOWER sUPPLY When I First Bought My Pc.
I don't even care about the PC version,consoles are where it's at :P 50" TV FTW!! Controller FTW!-prepares to be yelled at by PC fan boys trying to convince me to get the PC version. *prepares Hyper speed* http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Your pc could use that same 50 inch at 1080p right? 360 controller works fine.
You can hook up a PC to your 50" TV and use any controller you wish. That's the joys of such a versatile platform. Btw, I'm not trying to convince you to get the PC version, get whichever version you bloody like.
yes i do lol in fact use to have my pc hooked up to it.and in fact i do game on my pc.but i prefer consoles there less stressful.i have my dual shock 3 controller hooked up to my PC MotioninJoy FTW!,but yeah i need a new video card i cant even play oblivion.so its either new video card or a game for my ps3. what would you choose lol i can live with out a new video card.mostly i just got fed up looking for patches and up dates having to fix things just to play a game.way easier on a console.
But I'll admit, I'd take that video card :P I'm a hardware junkie till the very end.
When the game comes out we have to see if Crysis 2 on PS3 looks better then any other PS3 exclusive. If not then they were unable to get it to max. Also PS3 does 7.1 surround sound for those that were wondering.
So why even compare? It's not an exclusive so they won't give it the light of day. Will be a blast though. Pc's do 7.1 as well (if supported). PS3's audio is a bit better than 360's.
Even if it does look the best, loyalists won't admit it lol =). From what I saw, its right up there with the best looking games, keeping in mind Crysis is more open world than others. Edit: I recently bought a Radeon 5770 for my Pc, Im prepared for Crysis 2, and the devs said its not as demanding as the first, then it's all good.
what pc games use lossless audio!?!?! who cares about 7.1 its about the bitrate of the audio 7.1 can always be matrixed if you have a decent receiver.
1 I Hate Abut The Pc Is That I Hav to Upgrade It Everytime.New Grahics,Processor,Ram And Hardrive.But The Ps3 Is Fix U Dont Need To Upgrade Anything But Only The Hardrive.
