Jeff Rubenstein: Recently I spoke with Executive Producer Nathan Camarillo about those trademark Crytek visuals, and about the new multiplayer demo, which just hit PSN last night.
playing the demo now, disappointed "I’ve gone on the record saying that if you stick PS3 and 360 side by side I would challenge anyone to find any meaningful difference. I don’t see it at all." really? silly blind dev... still lying "It’s the core of CryEngine 3 that’s able to scale appropriately and we can adjust per platform exactly what we wanna get out of it." is that why the PS3 looks and runs the worst out of the 3, well to be fair I won't include PC in that because PC should be the best but 360 vs PS3 why is PS3 the worst?
That's funny, last time i checked the demo doesn't work...
I just had one game and now I keep getting network errors.
i played one game started it and it ended in 5 freakn minutes. After that i couldn't get into any other games
I'm not disappointed at all. Sure it doesn't have the graphical powerhouse or tactical teamplay like KZ3. But it's a different type of FPS. If I want to play team-oriented FPS, I pop in KZ3. If I want to play twitchy fast-paced FPS, I'll play Crysis 2 because it's much more fun than COD.
I never thought I'd be saying this but NO. No way is Crysis 2 more fun than COD online. COD blows Crysis 2 out of the water. Campaign wise though I have no doubt that it'll be the other way 'round.
I have played the beta and demo for the xbox 360. I have played both maps on the PS3 as well as the PC and here are the differences I have noticed graphically. The xbox 360 version has better looking water and better frame rate when many things are happening compared to PS3. The PS3 seems to have more motion blur and more sound FX and I did notice WAY more frame rate drops when the 5 kill streak on skyline was activated and grenades went off.(the frame rate drop was not in the 360 version) The PC demo looks better and runs better than both. If you were able to choose from one of the three then the PC version is the way to go. The PS3 and 360 version are very close to each other so you could go with any one if you were able to. For those that just got off KZ3 or crysis 2 PC then went to the crysis 2 demo(PS3 or 360) it would be painful to your eyes.
"For those that just got off KZ3 or crysis 2 PC then went to the crysis 2 demo(PS3 or 360) it would be painful to your eyes." Absolutely painful going from KZ3 to Crysis 2.
I'll keep saying it. Don't expect 3rd party devs to take advantage of PS3 hardware the way 1st party devs do e.g. ND, GG etc. They just want 360/PS3 versions to look close.
I played it this morning. And I have to say that it doesn't look bad, but its definitely not better looking than Killzone 3, but the movement is better than in KZ3. However, firing a gun from the hip in Crysis is atrocious, the worst ive ever experienced. The game seems alright, but im glad im not a day one nut over this cause to me its wasted money when there are so many other better fps out there.
Can people actually get in a game? I keep getting network issues, it's really starting to p*ss me off.
Me too the damn servers suck. It hasn't been able to find me any games yet.
dude best thing to do is join a game if any of ur frnds playing it...thts da best way to solve it right now
Looks terrible on PS3.
Looks and plays terrible.
Doesn't really look that great on 360 either though.
I Played it on my Laptop when the demo was out, i'm not a pc gamer, so i was dreadful at shooting, but it looked and felt good, i'm buying the game no matter what because i finished the first one, i just want to try MP to see how it plays
Interesting. The FUD coming out of the 360 camp is strong on this one. After trying the PS3 demo for myself I didn't have any framerate problems, and it looks great. It is quite curious how the lies of poor PS3 performance were started. More shocking is that such a large website like IGN would stoop to such FUD tactics and release an article like the one listed in this article.
Look around and you'll see that it's people with PS3s saying this stuff. Maybe because they're intimidated by a multiplat, who knows?
I thought it was all part of the act. Everybody likes the girl to play dress up and be the maid at times, right. So these people are PS3 owners huh. Any proof to that? Looks like the hate comments in the article from the Playstation Blog all use the free avatars by the way. You do know you're free to join the PSN from your computer as well. You don't even need a PS3 to join. And it's FREE. While you're there you can happily join the FUD campaign and post whatever you're into. Just don't believe everything you read online if you really do because it's not healthy or wise.
Anyone wanna make a party & see if it help find a game? If so add me; xAndycFc1 - It's 3 years old, don't judge :P
its alright not that not everything special
What a lying scumbag this Camarillo guy is...
Forget Crysis. I'm having a lot of fun with Socom 4 Beta!!!! Classic mode is hard though :)
- And that's with a fast internet connection and a gaming router. I'll pick Crysis 2 up pre-owned when the price drops to around £10 at GAME (won't be long) just for the Single Player. I don't want to give any of my money to Crytek, and I always support the COMPETENT devs.
I just don't see it. I mean, I know I have a high tolerance for crap. I like bayonetta on ps3 after all. but, still...I ain't seeing any of the issues people keep saying they see. I played 3 games with only issue being trying to find a match! Very nice otherwise. Day 1 prepaid
Crysis 2 could easily be one of my favorite shooters but there's too many technical problems to buy it day 1. The server problems, the framerate, the hit points from hip, and i think the motion blur is a little too much for me. If they manage to get all that fixed then they got my money.
He's telling the truth...i don't know what's going on with people but the PS3 demo is EXACTLY the same as the 360 demo like 2 drops of water...i have participated in the 360 beta and still play the demo...have both system hooked on the same TV via HDMI and i honestly can say they are both the same please PS3 owners don't believe these Journalists...it's like they want Crysis 2 to fail on PS3...Crytek must react, this is ridiculous IT IS EXACTLY the same!!!! the join problems occur because of the NAT settings it must say OPEN...360 version has exactly the same join problems if NAT settings are not correct....the Journalists that said the PS3 version is inferior are a bunch of LIARS!!!!
heres the thing, i like the graphics on the ps3 and i wouldn't mind buying this game but its the god dam frame rate and I cant risk my money to buy an unfinished game again like I did with blackops. all im asking is too fix the frame rate and polish it up a bit. then you might get my money
I didn't like it, didn't like the HUD, graphics and how you hip-fire from the assault rifle.
