Crysis 2 plagued by launch day issues

Crysis 2 has launched today, but PC users are registering a ton of complaints, even with a patch being released on day one.

Some of the issues that PC users are angry about:

* Their serial registry codes are already “in use”
* The game asks for a serial code every time a player wants to engage in multiplayer, and often ends up with the problem above
* Preorder bonus codes won’t work
* The game won’t load
* The lack of PC graphic options
* The lack of DirectX 11 support

Looks like PC gets shunned again when a dev decides to port a console game. They should have kept this on PC only.

thereapersson2590d ago

And if you think about how well the PC community has supported Crytek up to this point, it's even more sad.

Active Reload2590d ago

Didn't you guys pirate the game when it leaked?

gillri2590d ago

nope cause it wouldnt have sold nowhere nearly enough and then in this economic climate and the required invesment in advanced hardware could have put the company in danger of going under

I doubt a PC only release would fgo much further even than covering the overheads

havent you seen the amount of devs going bankrupt in the past few years?

that a very selfish attitude, surely you would be happier that more people get a greater choice now its more widely available

Substance1012590d ago

Lol think you have memory or are plain ignorant of facts.

Crysis 1 sold 3.5million as of may 2010, is that too hard to remember?

ct032590d ago

In danger of going under? Then why didn't Crytek go under when they released Far Cry? Or Crysis? Or Crysis Warhead? These were all PC exclusive.

Vherostar2590d ago

I agree this should have stayed PC only and it would have stayed better however money talks and releasing on consoles opens a lot more avenues.

You know what I love

When the new Xbox/PS3 comes in the "servers" (if you can call them that lol) will be shut down killing the game.

10 years from now on PC, as long as someone is running a server the game is still alive online.

That's what I love about all the console kiddies now days. New Xbox/PS3 hits and you will never be able to play any of the COD games form this gen anywhere bar the PC! Or any other online console game for that matter. And yet they somehow defend this shitty system forced on them by MS/Sony to the bitter end and call us PC elitists.

10 years from now I will still be able to log on COD, Crysis etc. and still play online.

all you console players practically RENT YOUR ONLINE GAMES FROM MICROSOFT AND SONY until they are done sucking your money and switch them off!

Invest your money wisely and get a gaming PC.

surely people are not suprised by this!.
Said it before and will say it again! make it for the PC first, then port to console!, everyones happy! dumbnut Dev`s!

awesomeperson2590d ago

If I'm not mistaken, as PC's can run higher end than consoles, wouldn't the game then not run on consoles?

Sorry if I'm wrong, don't know much about porting.

Dark_king2590d ago

Its easier to scale back then forwards.He is right

dannybohy2590d ago

The game should be made for the PC then ported to Console. Not developed for the console and backward ported to PC as is the trend these days, and hence all the buggy, Dumbed down, badly ported PC games these days!. i dont remember all these problems with COD4! PC was good, and the console gamers got a good game too!

Megaton2590d ago

Crytek's 180 on the PC community that made them what they are today is pretty damn pathetic.

Tachyon_Nova2590d ago

Once again its the Fallout fan bagging Crytek. Lets go back to Fallout. Where were its origins? Firmly rooted on the PC. Yet recent games in the series have been graphically horrible (barely better than console versions), poorly supported, recieved add ons later than the 360 etc.

Vherostar2590d ago

With the HD textures mod fallout is LUSH on PC so get your facts right. As PC has a massive modding community the 360 could only dream of and the PS3 has the ability to do (look at UT III)

Megaton2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

ROFL, this guy again. Tracking me, bro? Maximum butthurt?

I didn't realize Fallout games had been graphical benchmarks in the past. Clearly Fallout 3 and NV tarnished the prestigious graphical pedigree of Fallout 1 and 2.

You assume that I ride Bethesda's nuts just because I like Fallout 3. I'm not like you. I don't ignore reality because I happen to really love a particular game/series. I call it like I see it. I bash Bethesda more than most people who hate their games. Mainly for their HORRIBLE Gamebryo engine and 360 deals made for a game that, yes, should be PC-first.

Still, even with Bethesda's failures, Fallout 3 has an incredible mod community on PC. It remains to be seen whether or not Crytek will make Crysis 2 as open as the original.

PC & PS3 Versions were always gonna get fucked over. Money talks, bullshit walks.

MadMax2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

I hate to say it, but it kinda serves some of you arrogant, closeminded pc gamers right! After all the console bashing, ripping on the PS3 and 360 versions and look what happens! lol, comedy! I guess Crysis 2 really does run better on the PC!

GamerPS3602590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Console is still piece of crap compare to PC. Games on PC from last century looks better than crysis on console. :)
oh great, what did I just say?
... may be truth. Goodbye to my bubbles :D

dannybohy2590d ago

i gave you some bubble love. ..
