Crytek announced that they'll release a new multiplayer demo of Crysis 2 for pc just some days before offical release.
I guess they didn't want to compete with Killzone 3. Can't blame them though considering Killzone 3 blows Crysis 2 out of the water. Even the first Crysis is better than Crysis 2.
Yea I dont care Killzone 3 open beta next week i'll be playing that and nothing else
Blow this game out of the water. perdictions: 1 out of 10 people that buy this game will play it on line for more than one week. 2. This game will be plagued with lag. 3. this game will have more glitches than Gears of War.
I'm guessing one of three things. 1. They don't wish to compete with KZ as deathstroke said above. 2. They haven't quite got it running to the same standard unfortunately, or. 3. Microsoft have paid them to show it off more on xbox so they get more sales.
@King_many_layers Number 3 as you stated is what Microsoft is good at,marketing. If Sony did that they might sell more multi platform games.
I would have thought its because as we all know PS3 fans all own gaming PC's, yet prefer to play on console. Funny how so many of you claim to have played Crysis and know how bad it apparently is yet still are amazed by console graphics...
Maybe Sony asked EA to take a back seat on this one, since they seem to have such a great relationship.
That's kind of a weird request since this demo would release in march after killzone 3 is already out so it wouldn't really affect anything. My guess is it might have to do with the security breach by the hackers and geotroll...
Man I hope this isn't because of the hacking and the ps3 security being cracked open. If it is then I hope all the hackers get ass cancer. If it isn't because of the security breach and the hackers then I have a big middle finger for crytek. I'm still getting this but I wanna try it out too...
Just a demo. If I want a PS3 or X360 game I do not care for a demo. I want the game. I will be playing KILLZONE 3 and Crysis 2(PC Edition) :P I get to play with my new graphics card. :)
I hope this has nothing to do with Sony. Sony has in the past not been kind to games releasing in the same window as it's exclusives...not a good idea. Crysis is launching a month AFTER KZ3. There's room for both of them to exist. EA and Crytek are both going to be around for a while and if Sony is saying no thanks to the beta...a very good possibility, then it will come back to bite them in the A$$. I have notice some warming up in EA's relationship with M$ recently with Bulletstorm and XBL EA sales...Hmmmm. Just look at all the games EA has coming out in 2011. You just can't pick and choose when you want to endorse third party gaming. Keep in mind that while Sony's line up looks great this year, it's bone dry for next unless you think 2010 was a good year for Sony...O_o
Kick in the nuts.
Who cares anyway ?
People who only have a PS3?
Except me I guess. I couldn't care less, about the demo or the full game.
Or....People who REALLY wanna play crysis 2 and only have a ps3. It's all I really have and don't give a squirt of piss.
Well it doesn't matter to me, because I'm getting this game no matter what. I don't need a demo, but I'm still unsure if I'm gonna get it on Steam or PS3 mainly because i have way more friends on PS3 for multiplayer, but the PC version will look the best, but I hate modded servers, so I'm just totally undecided.
@Pandamobile In case you didn't now most of them have a pc and even some with an xbox . and i hate to tell you but the full game is still coming to ps3 . i only said who cares beacause most ps3 owners will buy killzone 3 instead of this game , just like most of the xbox crouwd will go with bulletstorm instead .
LOL no one. The only people who care about Crysis are the PC fanboys. The majority of console gamers don't even know about Crysis.
Crysis my Ass, the game was fun technology and software at first, but now it's just dumb-downed console software like a lot of the games that first begin to appear on Consoles. Mark my words, Crysis 2 is going to have a lot of Glitches and Connection Issues day one of release, up till at-least 2 weeks on.
Still they don't show any PS3 footage? Something weird is going on. What do you guys think?
I bet MS struck some sort of deal w/ them. Or maybe the game might look like crap, you win some, you lose some I guess. KZ3, Socom, Resistanc and UC for me then, I think I'll survive tho. :-)
Seriously, 4 games in 1 year? If you only mean 4 FPS's, then why would one of them be Socom? Oh wait, it's exclusive, and therefore will be TeH AwesOmeS! There is no way that Socom is going to be a better game than every single one of the following FPS's (all out this year): Battlefield 3, Bodycount, Brink, Crysis 2, Duke Nukem, Ghost Recon FS, Op Flashpoint, and Rage.
Hmm... Why would one of them be Socom? You probably also mean Uncharted. Well sir, I love those games. Have logged many hours onto all of them. I don't really know when I said Socom or any other one of these games would be better than the ones you mentioned, but if you find it in my post please kindly point it out. In reality, people like you need to accept that Sony exclusives are second to none. You might not like the company for whatever reason, but their products are quality. Plain and simple. Don't get mad at me because my opinion differs from yours. Enjoy Crysis 2. FYI - Most if, not all the games you mentioned are also out on PS3 so I don't even understand your point..... lol.
Ites cuz it probably has alot of technical issues that they r trying to resolve. Srsly...if the xbox had glitches and that the esiest platform to dev for outside of the pc itself...then imagine the ps3...
Sweet, looking forward to this
Well thats disappointing. Really wanted to try it out before hand getting KZ3 for sure.
RDR all over again. There is a reason why they don't want to show it on PS3 before the release. And no, it's not because MS was soooooo supportive.
No its because they suck at developing for the PS3....maybe there wont even be a PS3 version!
Their on record as saying that the PS3 version will be superior in some areas (like physics, lighting etc), but maybe weaker in some others. Look, Crysis 2 on consoles looks way better than the vast majority of games on the system, so what does it really matter?
Nothing to do with the PS3 version being bad, i've seen the tech demo's running in realtime on PS3 and it was nice. I'm guessing because of the complaining and 360 being a shooterbox, and obviously PC is where the original came from, they are not pushing a demo on PS3. There is alot out on PS3 atm. It would just get swamped and forgotten.
only to be followed by thousands of PC vs. 360 comparisons.
I would say it is the same deal as Homefront. Microsoft are showing support but Sony are too focused on KZ3. PS3 owners are being pretty uptight anyway since they seem to feel so challenged by Crytek promising their game to be the best looking on consoles and won't accept it.
There's no mention of the PS3 demo in that twitter. It's just an attempt to get more hits.
So they don't want me to buy it?
The game looks amazing gameplay wise and supports DX11, that is all I need to know. Couldn't care less about the MP though, online only is always lame, now 32v32 bot matches would have been epic.
The demo is fun, has some interesting ideas but i dunno... It doesnt hold a candle to Crysis 1's multiplayer. I fired up the demo and thought wtf happened to the incredible open world multiplayer? The Vehicles and money based weapon/equipment purchasing? I was really hoping Crytek UK would really pull something out of the hat. But it's only the demo. I'm willing to give it a chance. It'll be a PC buy of course but it's way back in the 'queue of want'. Shogun 2, Deus Ex an The Witcher 2 must come first. Maybe if Crytek Uk start making Timesplitters 4 i'd buy it sooner...
I just think this might be a bad move...at least on the PS3 sales side. PS3 gamers have been burned more times than not by shoddy ports and inferior performance in multi-platform games. This could cause them to shy away from Crysis 2. Especially, saying as though ther are some heavy hitters are coming up for it. Then again, it could just be that they are okay with getting the majority of sales from 360 and PC and take whatever they can get from PS3. Either way, it WOULD be nice to have them put their money where there mouth is in terms of what they have touted about Crysis 2. The game looks good, but I would like to get it in my hands before throwing down another $60.
Guys relax I bet there is a demo coming we might just be last on the list to get our hands on it. No where in the article does it say that the PS3 isn't coming, all it states is that the PC is getting a chance that's all. Just look at EA track record with the PS3 they have supported PS3 owners this gen way more then the 360. I'm pretty sure we'll get the demo or news of when we'll get in soon.
demo was thought to be 360 exclusive but now the PC is getting it. I'm sure they'll head towards ps3 afterwards.
I don't give a damn about Crysis 2. I'm a bit curious to see what the game will look like on the PS3, but it's more of an afterthought, cause 1 month from now the infamous sony 1st party studios will be at it again: move outta the way, suckers, this place is gonna be a Killzooooooooooone!!! :D :D :D
http://www.ea.com/crysis-2/... No Nano suit edition for PS3? I don't know if there will be a demo, but i can either play it on PC or PS3. ----------------------------- --------------------------- But for those comparing this to Killzone3 is just plain silly. http://web-vassets.ea.com/A... http://web-vassets.ea.com/A... http://web-vassets.ea.com/A... Those are from the EA website from the 360 version. I'm calling more then a few 360 fans out with this. I've played both 360 version of crysis2 demo and the KILLZONE3 beta, Killzone3 has better fx, better graphics, AA, more going on. Cleaner picture.
I've been in the KZ3 beta since the start. I agree with the AA but cleaner picture?? I'm calling BS on that. KZ3 is a blur fest in motion. Giving this over-the-top blind praise to KZ3 is really what is silly. Dunno why every PS3 title has to be spammed across every FPS and then over-hyped when in reality KZ series as a whole is a mediocre FPS from the game play to the sales and support. So disappointed in the lack of SP DLC support GG has given KZ2.
I think this game is overhyped. I don't really care much about the demo. I watched some of the demo videos and I'm not impressed. I will wait for the Killzone demo intead... that is something I can't miss.
My only worry is that they're not releasing this because of PS3 hardware difficulties. If this game runs the same path as Black Ops PS3 version, then I will be one pissed gamer. If they need more development time, so be it. It's better than rushing a port. Honestly, I'm a big fan of these alien invasion film type games. And Crysis2 is no exception. I do not want to be playing a glitchy version of this.
They know ps3 owners got to buy kz3, resistance3, uncharted 3, and socom 4. ($240 for all plus time to play. + crisis has to compete with a third battlefield and another call of duty) On Xbox on the other hand they only got gears 3, battlefield 3, and cod mw3. You know they'll be buying crysis and bulletstorm. If crysis didn't look so bad on the 360 demo I would've bought it on one of the consoles, they're only hope now is to make a bang up ps3 version I'll rent it, if good I buy. Bulletstorm was just boring.
Crysis demo sucked. You kids are not missing a thing.
Killzone 3 or Crysis 2 hmmm so hard to decide hmm... wait, what's that? Killzone 3 is going to have a multiplayer demo and a single player demo? Sweet! Wait, crysis 2 has a multiplayer demo for everything BUT the ps3? Sorry, but I've had enough of multiplatform games with console favoritism *Looking at you Treyarch(with middle finger up)*
