I don't know where to begin. Every next big release 'pushes the system to it's limits'. I guess in this time I will believe it. crytech is a violently awesome engine, and if they use it to it's it's max capacity, the 360 will have to pull everything it has inside to run it. I would even say the game needs an install.

Edit: I didn't say anything about the console, other than the 360 will have to step up it's game with Crysis's friggin engine. You bring the PS3 into this because you are a troll. All AAA have articles that push game consoles to their limits. Gear 2, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, all claimed this. Now look at 2011 we are getting their 3rd installments and they look twice as good as thier predecessor. You are being a jerk and are reported for your unneccessary comment.

Yeah since only PS3 is allowed to push anything to it's limits.
Kids, why disagrees? I only stated the obvious. When ever some PS3 devs says something like this, you are all over their ball .... scratching it. But when someone says it about 360 game it is stealth uh oh no it can't be that is silly or something is missing (look above).
The fact is 360 is 90% there compared to PS3 in raw power. PS3 will always have an edge but it isn't like OMG look at that difference. Maybe when you have fanboy glasses but if you have common sense glasses like i do, it's different.

Nothing great about pushing a console to its limits, its still lagging behind 3-4 yr old PC hardware. Crysis 2 proves just that.

Iamback2861d ago

and yet MP games run better on it. Weird world we live in

imvix2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

Lol maybe when compared to the PS3, against PC not a chance.

Let us know when you have:

Free online,
Dedicated servers,
Community mods(better then paying for DLCs).

nickjkl2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

well damn

crytek is just pushing limits all over the place

hope they suceed if they dont the backlash on their reputation is going to be horrendous

a promise you cant keep is a promise you shouldnt have made

Ranshak2861d ago

Crytek should learn a lesson from Remedy, going exclusive to one platform in the end might end up hurting them.

A PC & PS3 release should have happened.

8thnightvolley2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

if anyone was to make that statement i am ok if crytek did.. and looking forward to watch they can achieve with cryengine 3 on the 360 as an exclusive title .... and this game should be a beast but yet again what is the real meaning of maxing out" its just a distribution of system resources to achieve a specific goal and wise distribution at the right time yields better results so that would make their statement true or false so technically speaking you cant really max it out just yet...either way... good times 2011 incoming!!!.

As of May 2010 Crytek sold:

3 million copies of Crysis
1.5 Million copies of Crysis warhead.

Crytek have to be deluded to be ignoring the PC market.

The real killer2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

Just ignore those noobs and all those disagree clickers, they don't knwo what discussion is.

The most Noobs ignore the fact that PS3 games allready pushing the PS3 to its limit (PS3 developer not third party developers), those games don't even run on the 360 in the first place, it's to powerfull for the 360.

Kingdome will look good, but not so good like the most PS3 exclusive games.

Ifone2861d ago

In your dreams imvix, like most gamers i have a pc, and most of the 2011 games don't look better than ps3 exclusives, even the "not so beautufull" mmo is almost the same on the 2 platforms.

King_of _the_Casuals2861d ago

Damn....I can already tell what they game will be. It's gonna be a Gladiator battle game using Kinect. You'll be able to use swords, spears, shields, etc..... It'll probably all take place in an arena, and will probably have some deadly obstacle courses involved as well.

As a Kinect owner, I'm EXCITED to have a hardcore game to play, as I like the concept. But as a 360 owner, I was wishing for more a deeper type of game. Oh well, let's hope for the BEST!!!

InTheKnow2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

@ are going to lose all those bubble posting that kind of common sense around here. It's clearly a 360 thread but the trolls who don't own a 360, know nothing about the games, just can't help themselves.

On topic: whatever they are working on better have some sort of multi-player component. Obviously he's hinting at Kinect compatibility which should make any potential fans of this game nervous unless it's optional.

" Where there's smoke there's fire " so it seems that this information coming out at this time is a clear indication of a big reveal coming soon...maybe April right before E3. He is getting the news out they are ready to start the hype machine...hold onto your hats folks, the fun is just starting. M$ has already said that this game has been in development for a long while already. I hope it look like this...

...or more attention at around 1:24 of this video for a first look at what Kingdoms is going to look like...WoW...alot of Kingdom sneak peaks in these 2 videos...

As for all the talk about maxing out the will never happen. They are constantly adding and tweaking things.

Gears of War 3 for example, has no equal and the franchise never had an equal. No game out there with the exception of Halo Reach is doing what Gears does.

...and dedicated servers for the awesome multi-player...

Single player, 4 player story based co-op, firefight/forge mode and award winning multi-player all done in game and in your face...and on a regular DvD no innovation.

As for the " grumpy " PC community...maybe if you guys actually PAID for the games instead of pirating everything that moves, you would have devs spend more money on PC games.

ABizzel12861d ago

I need to actually see the game to be excited for it. E3 2011 will be interesting. We'll see a lot of new 360 games (most of them Kinect), a lot of PS3 footage (my guess is the majority of the games will be the ones we already know about, but the actual final builds, and a PSP2 release date), Nintendo IDK maybe Zelda release date, a couple of new games, and a lot of 3DS stuff.

They said Crysis 2 push PS3 and Xbox 360 to its limit... Yet it looks bad...

push it limit dosent mean grahpic is good. Its just max physic maybe... or map... you know..

Iamback2861d ago

360 looks better, what doesn't it say about PS3 then? Of course we are using your logic.

Simon_Brezhnev2861d ago

i have yet to see Crytek push anything on consoles so i dont believe them.

Spitfire_Riggz2861d ago

I dont know what this is about but did anyone pay attention to the "genuinely new" Interactive entertainment experience??? If its a Heavy Rain ripoff you all owe me a spicy from Mcdonalds.

Why does every one assume that when a developer says pushes X consle to the limit, that they are talking about graphics?

Pushing something to the limit could mean thing like an open world game with endles possibilities, really smart AI, enviorment where everthing is interactable...ect...

Grahphics are nice but not everything that glitters is gold.

'Grahphics are nice but not everything that glitters is gold.'

Perfect metaphor.

Does anyone know what genre this game is?

I would love it if it were a mixture of Master of Magic and Elder Scrolls.

guigsy2861d ago

Does the trailer look like it's going to have guns in it?

scofios2861d ago

We all know how a game ends on the 360 if it doesn't have guns .

JeffGUNZ2861d ago

Did you even attempt to read the article? It clearly states that they are creating a game that is NOT a shooter.

FrankMcSpank2861d ago (Edited 2861d ago )

The Crytech 3 Engine demo had a scene with a third person character running through the woods (@35secs) and it looked fluid. Like how you moved in unreleased (Eight Days PS3 or Beyond Good and Evil 2 - 360 demoes.

Spitfire_Riggz2861d ago

Look at my comment right above you meerkat, thats my guess

Hands Up For Games2861d ago

If anyone can push hardware limits its Crytek, does this mean its going to be an amazing game, who knows?

All I know is, im interested!!

Iamback2861d ago

i wish it was for PS3, seems like my type of game.

siyrobbo2861d ago

published by microsoft so doubtful

rlm412861d ago

<3 Crytek.. This could be GOTY 2011

mrmikew20182861d ago

How? You haven't even seen one video or even a screenshot of the title. Don't get your hopes bro, a lot people thought that Too Human was going to be a good title, we all see how that turn out.

rlm412861d ago

Hey calm down i'm allowed to be positive.. This could be a sleeper hit for all you know..

"Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has claimed that Xbox 360 exclusive Codename: Kingdoms will push the console "to its limits" and offer gamers "a genuinely new" interactive entertainment experience."

If it delivers to what he has claimed and offers a genuinely new interactive experience then that very well could be GOTY material.

Ifone2861d ago

Goty for 360, why not (but don't even dream about a competition with ps3 exclusives)

JeffGUNZ2861d ago

Really? How could you possibly make that assumption since you have not seen anything from this game yet? Fanboy much?

MGRogue20172861d ago

yeah... sure it will...
