CVG: 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.
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.
and yet MP games run better on it. Weird world we live in
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).
well damn crytek is just pushing limits all over the place http://www.nowgamer.com/new... 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
@ lamback...you 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... http://www.youtube.com/watc... ...or more appropriately...like this...pay 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... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... As for all the talk about maxing out the 360...it 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. http://www.youtube.com/watc... ...and dedicated servers for the awesome multi-player... http://www.youtube.com/watc... 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 less...O_o...lol...thats 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.
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..
360 looks better, what doesn't it say about PS3 then? Of course we are using your logic.
i have yet to see Crytek push anything on consoles so i dont believe them.
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.
Does the trailer look like it's going to have guns in it?
We all know how a game ends on the 360 if it doesn't have guns .
Did you even attempt to read the article? It clearly states that they are creating a game that is NOT a shooter.
The Crytech 3 Engine demo had a scene with a third person character running through the woods http://www.youtube.com/watc... (@35secs) and it looked fluid. Like how you moved in unreleased (Eight Days PS3 http://www.youtube.com/watc... or Beyond Good and Evil 2 - 360 http://www.youtube.com/watc... demoes.
Look at my comment right above you meerkat, thats my guess
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!!
i wish it was for PS3, seems like my type of game.
published by microsoft so doubtful
<3 Crytek.. This could be GOTY 2011
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.
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.
Goty for 360, why not (but don't even dream about a competition with ps3 exclusives)
Really? How could you possibly make that assumption since you have not seen anything from this game yet? Fanboy much?
yeah... sure it will... /s
Like Gears 2?
God of War ripofffffffff!!!
I got it from Mega64 truth phones.
How many times I have to say this? You can never max out any console, There is *ALWAYS* improvements to make to the game engine & new engines can be made to take even more advantage of the console.. I am sick of hearing developers saying this shit.. like this game uses 100% & now Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli here saying that Crysis 2 will use 110% .. wtf is that? It's bullshit. All the developers can do is continue to make new game engines to take full advantage of the console & then optimize & improve even more with either a new game engine or... just improve on the engine they have already.
You can max it out in terms of using the best available technology to date to make the game (engine etc.).. But yes you're right technology improves and so do the games.
So long as it doesnt Break my XBOX im for all that. Also Bungie pushed Halo to its limits with Reach the game turned out great. Crytek will no doubt attempt to do the most with hardware at hand and I look forward to see what they come out with
This game is probably just another timed exclusive. I think I'll wait for the PC version.
K, keep waiting and waiting for something that might not ever happen.. waste of time if you ask me
It won't be mate, Crytek are cooperating with Microsoft Game Studios. ME2 was published by EA, no involvement from MGS. Same with BioShock (except pub'ed by 2K) and the rest of the "timed-exclusives".
MS own this ip
That has not been made official as far as I know. In fact I don't believe it has even been unofficially commented on by Crytek
SSDD.. I remember always falling for the same old slander headlines when I was younger. "XBOX MAXED OUT".."XBOX PUSHED TO ITS LIMITS".. "CAN ONLY BE DONE ON XBOX" Yack yack yack... The only thing holding the Xbox back is its physical media capacity. Seriously Seeing some of Castlevania,Bayonetta,Dantes Inferno and my personal favorite.. FF XIII's cinematics were laughable at best. BINK compression all the way for MS!!! What a way to totally ruin gaming for us HD folks You can make any game beautiful if it isnt compressed to death and/or raped with a developer's polishing cloth. YES im looking at you ALAN WAKE!!! Looks like you guys bath in Vaseline or suntan lotion for God sakes!
The guys round here don't even game in HD apparently. I posted a comment in a article last week suggesting that if you don't game in HD you are missing out on a far better experience and I got more disagrees than agrees. Go figure...
I'm gonna adopt a wait and see attitude to this. It would be nice to play something on the 360 that looks better than what we saw in 2006, but i remain doubtful. PS3 is where the graphics edge is at. The PC is hampered by the lead development platform being consoles.
I'm still waiting to see a game that looks better than Gears of War 2.
"I'm still waiting to see a game that looks better than Gears of War 2 On the 360! fixed And if you ment on any console you need to remove those fanboy goggles.
If Crytek is interested in pushing a console to its limits, why are they not developing this for PC? I mean it's not like the PC version won't be better. Heck, I think even the PS3 could carry off more than the 360. But we will have to wait and see. It's probably a timed exclusive anyway. I've heard enough talk from MS about exclusives to watch it come to PC or PS3 a year down the line.
If it is a Hack n' slash style game which I feel is the general consensus (admitedly based on absoultely no evidence, the trailer did not reall indicate a genre), then they are right to not develop it for PC. The keyboard and mouse input is not suited to that style of games and although you can easily hook up a game pad, most people aren't going to do this. Once again, it won't be a timed exclusives because Microsoft Game Studios are getting involved as the publisher. I'd imagine Crytek are going to retain ownership of the IP, but MSG will have some sort of publishing deal with them.
did Alan Wake or Gears of War coming PS3?god damn you timed exclusive guys
isn't a console you can't maxs the infinite
It's being published by Microsoft so it can't be a timed exclusive, smart one.
...so tired of this crap, according to these kind of articles, ALL consoles were 'maxed out', 'used every bit' , etc etc years ago. give me a game so fun I cant put it down, that I'm thinking about how to beat certain parts when I'm NOT playing it....that's a GOOD game......btw I cant stop playing the new Donkey Kong Country, anyone with a wii would be doing themselves a disservice not to buy and play this one....
hope so... linky me up to a vid which shows me something
"When you're spending a multimillion budget only on the Xbox 360, that team will be able to crank out the last two or three percent left in the console. But I think that two or three percent will make the difference potentially between day and night that you cannot afford if you go multiplatform." - Crytek
I wish Crytek would stop talking shit!
I hope you say the same thing when all those 1st party Sony developers come out their usual "we only used 50% of it's power" bollocks, which they do for pretty much every game these days.
well i can't can't judge without any game-play.
show us come gameplay
They will when they're ready.
Just publicity. The xbox 360 is easy to take advantage of is power and thats why we dont see a evolution in graphics like the PS3. Thats why gear 2 is still the best looking game by far in xbox 360. Crytek can say what they want because in the end the only game with better graphics that gear 2 will be gear 3.
Bungie did that too with halo reach!
"Crytek: Xbox-exclusive Kingdoms will push 360 'to its limits'" What game doesn't?
Nice! I can't wait to see it. I love Crytek, Crysis and the Far Cry games are very well made, good quality titles. With focusing on one platform, and this being Crytek, it seems that would ensure they'd flip the 360 inside out and know every nook and cranny on how it works and how to take advantage of the hardware to its fullest. I have utmost faith in Crytek given their previous work, in the performance/graphics department. That's not what matters to me though, it should have great gameplay, which I'm sure it will.
Your talk impresses me, I can't wait to see what you have to show. 360 needs more exclusives, and you guys seem like the right people for the job.
