GameBlurb, "It seems like the Xbox360 is not the only one getting a port to the original Crysis."
Hmm.. wonder how much the graphics will be dumbed down
Crysis 2 is already sub-HD with no anti-aliasing on both consoles. Not to mention some ugly textures, screen tearing on one system, lower fps on the other.... LOL, what more can they do to the 'best looking game on consoles'? make it 480p native? Perhaps invent some sort of innovative 'anti-anti-aliasing'? lol
LOL... the title alone made me lol so hard. I love my PS3s, but to even mention Crysis1 next to any console just puts a shitty-sarcastic grin on my face...
Crysis 1 sucks
Really... did you play it on your technological beast of a console.
I played it on my PC and it didn't live up to the hype for me. Sure, the graphics are simply amazing but the gameplay didn't do it for me. Sadly Crysis 2 wasn't any better in the gameplay department. :(
Crysis 1 does sucks,.. Warhead and Crysis2 were a tad better in pacing,.. It is funny that Crytek's best designed game was Far Cry 1 in my opinion,.. I am not hating on them,.. but to me personally their games are average at best,..
They must have ported it over to the new engine, so it probably won't look that bad. Plus Crysis 2 did look pretty good on consoles, granted not as good as on PC, but still quite good.
if this is true ps3 ppl will not buy it cause of the failed crysis 2 on the ps3
Oh man can't wait for this :D Hopefully the graphics are not that toned down. Imagine Crysis 2 graphics with the sandbox of Crysis 1?..holy we are looking at a console beast that can be the graphics king.
You had to be a downer didn't you?
A port? I'd rather see a remake. Not sure what kinda compromises it'd have to take if it were to run on CryEngine 2 on consoles...
Lol @ the people downvoting him. Crysis 1 unlike Crysis 2 was made for the PC so it doesn't exactly have many compromises in regards to draw distance detail etc. The game is going to have to be downgraded significantly visually to run on consoles and it will most likely look worse than Crysis 2 considering it wasn't consolized in the first place. Your consoles are old tech, guys. They're simply not that powerful that Crysis is going to get a nice shiny port job without significant compromises.
While I agree with your comment I just find it funny how you said "Crysis was made for the PC" (I'm not disagreeing with that) I just find it ironic that it was made for PC and its engine is THE MOST INEFFICIENT ENGINE EVER!!!!!!!!!! Seriously I have an AMD 6970, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition, 8 GB RAM and the game STILL is all over the place in framerates.....-_-
Oh seriously, Cryengine 2 is unoptimized as hell. I'm in the same boat as you are.
"Seriously I have an AMD 6970, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition, 8 GB RAM and the game STILL is all over the place in framerates.....-_- " sounds like user error. I remember running crysis on a 3870 athlon x2 5000 1280x1024 on med at 30fps.
@ evrfighter No man trust me. I have the latest drivers. It not like its below 30 fps all the time it just dips really low and is VERY inconsistent. I get anywhere from 60 fps to 15 fps. Plus I'm pretty sure a 3870 wont give you a 30 fps average with everything on very high @ 1920x1080. Dude my rig can easily run on medium and even High, I just max out my games and crysis and metro 2033 are the only ones i cant with playable frame rates. You cant be in PC gaming and have "user error". I'm sure even on medium settings that 3870 isn't getting a CONSISTENT 30 fps. It probably ranged from 40 fps to about 8 fps, but averaged 30 fps. CRYSIS HAS A INEFFICIENT ENGINE. On top of that the game was built and optimized for NVIDIA cards, so naturally it would be even more inconsistent on an ATI card.
Even my Nvidia doesn't help the poor excuse of an engine, looks great, but wow I struggle on Medium when other games will run on max with only minimal frame drops. It isn't stable in the slightest
It will be a remake in cryengine 3 for sure. Cryengine 2 would make the ps3 and 360 implode.
Well, they'll redo it in cryengine 3 so it actually might look almost as good as crysis on a rig. (Nah it'll look like crap)
Hopefully its bundled with Crisis 2 I have yet to play both.
lol...why would they do that? It's obvious they're trying to make money out of re releasing crysis for the consoles.
I was just wanting to get a deal lol XD
Crysis 1 + Wars + Warhead for 1 Blu ray disc on PS3 should be a great deal.
bluray = up to 50gbs of memory stored.... how big is crysis 1 +warhead+wars ?
Crysis 1 - 6.75gb Warhead - 5.66gb Wars - 5.19gb So 17.6gb (according to my steam account) :)
Nice so it's not an Xbox 360 exclusive. Considering how much they claim the new engine is easy to port, would be awesome to see it on both consoles.
port of an ASS old game? who cares
People that don't care if a game is "ass old" as long as it's fun, maybe? I'll buy it if it's a download and the price is around $20. I don't see this being a full retail release. They can dumb down the graphics all the need too. I'd rather have a graphically inferior version of a great looking game than no game at all. Whatever graphics PS3 and 360 can produce will be more than adequate for me.
And it still manages to look better than most exclusives thus released or about to release!
Well it better come with warhead but seriously crysis 1 although fun, is so yesterday. I see a money opportunity for crytek and that's about it. Most people can play crysis for like 10 bucks on their PC. Would not spend full price unless there were some serious additions no way.
Money opportunity? I can't see this game selling enough to break even unless it doesn't cost nearly as much I think to port it to consoles. It will have to undergo much changes before it can run smoothly on either 360/ps3
I agree with Dr. RichtoFen (above) it should be bundled with Crysis 2. NOt only will the game not be recognized by many console players (you might disagree, but many people I know that game on the 360 and PS3 do not know of many of the best PC games) it will have come AFTER the second Crysis. Look at what happened with Bioshock. It was well known by console players and it still did lackluster on the PS3. It should be in a bundle or they wil be poorly received.
Better pray the last boss fight isn't such a clusterfuck of glitches - either the TAC gun won't lock on, the boss suddenly has inf. health or you fall through the floor. That's not the worst of it though. Crytek haven't fixed it. And they never will.
That's nothing, last time I played that part my performance plummeted to unplayable levels and I'd get a BSOD whenever I got to a certain point!
WTF? Crysis 1!? This gotta be a joke. PS3 can't handle a game like crysis 1 neither could x360. And the x360 would have the better port. It'll be a hella weak port, even if crytek uses the the cryengine3 to do it. They should just hold it off till the NEXT gen consoles and THEN port Crysis AND Crysis:Warhead on a single bluray and call it Crysis Anniversary. I would rather they do it that way...........
That would make sense but obviously C2 didn't do so well and this is an easier, cheaper way for they to make some money than making a new game.
Of course Ps3 and 360 can run them..it will just be in black and white, or 8 bit blocky greyscale, lol.
Even Wii can run Crysis, even can run Cryengine 3: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
2 ps3's in sli should max it out! I would love to see them bring graphics mods to ps3/360 so I can watch the fire works as they implode! http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... really this is how it might look on ps3/360 - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wait, when was Crysis announced for consoles?
I would buy it since all I have is a PS3 but I bet the trees are going to have massive pop up issuses
Crysis 1 was supposed to be ported to the PS3 along time ago using the the original cryengine. http://www.qj.net/qjnet/pla...
Crytek have amazing potential but are pretty shit devs. Their customer service is terrible, their game is full of bugs that ruin the experience and they take eons to fix simple day 1 problems, in fact, they don't even fix game bugs.
WHY ALL THAT HOSTILITY TOWARDS CRYTEK? Sorry, i really do not get it. Rembember Crysis 1? It's a freaking cool game and i could run it with patches/mods/tweaked shaders on a old Radeon FX1650 with just 2 CPUs and 1gb mem on 1024x768 resolution at 30fps, good enough to experience the game with med res textures/DirectX10 effects/volumetric FX on high/Physics on med/Water FX on high/post processing on high/objects on high....imagine running it on the optimised Cryengine 3 on 720p it's absolutely possible on 360/PS3 and maybe it will have the new optimised MLAA rendering techniques researches were talking about just a couple of days ago...it still will look better than ANY game this gen, this game was so far ahead in 2007 it's just silly people don't want this game on 360/PS3. Rejoice! and welcome the game, why on earth do people keep dissing Crytek? They are very good developers making stellar games(must be the bitter PC fantatics distorting the opinions about Crytek again). Why do u want every single user to have the same opinion?? Crytek doesn't deserve this retarded BS.
This gen,the word port can be a scary thing
Crysis 1 being ported? crysis 1 is more demanding than crysis 2 so they must make it look like horse shit if they want it to be playable on the consoles xD crysis 2 has horrible fps drops on both consoles and it is sub hd and with like 2x AA, millions of texture pop-ins etc xD LOL
your disagrees warms my soul :3
Did anyone see this part in the article: "Posted Apr 16, 2007 at 10:54PM EST" ?
What the... I could bet my controller that the article was in qj.net before, it was real old... I jost got mindf***ed by n4g. I actually copied the date and time in my last comment from the article. EDIT: This is the article I was talking about http://www.qj.net/qjnet/pla... Still can't figure out what happened.
If crysis came to the consoles, the version they get would definitely have to be built from the ground up. And I'm sure the pc and console versions wouldn't b able to compare with eachother. I'm quite sure from a technical standpoint no matter how well you can code an engine, system resources dictate concessions would have to be made.
With certain mods and high resolution texture packs Crysis 1 is even better than any game currently on the market in terms of graphics. I wonder how good the graphics will turn out to be on the consoles honestly.
how about they make the game not suck ass?
i really hope so i love a good jungle game. and to see the cryengine 3 at a jungle setting.
there would a big graphical down grade, but since it is a forest they could hide pop up behind all the trees, but idk we will have to find out if it hoppens
Since when are any of you guys video game developers? How can you say it will run like shit blah blah blah just because you have a expensive graphics card and you still can't run it perfectly doesn't mean the consoles can't run it crytec didnt do any type of optimization on pc they just tried and make it as hard to max out as possible . But look at the witcher 2 that game on pc was optimized to look great on low end graphics cards and to me that game looks as good or better then crysis. If crytec develop and focus on console they can optimize the shit out of the consoles and make it work I'm pretty sure they will make the game look as good as medium settings
what are you talking about? I have a GTX 560 Ti and can run Crysis just fine with 1 and even better with SLI, I've tested it. People say that because of the low memory on consoles.
It's coming to consoles!? Hmm guess we'll have to see what they're capable of doing with it. I know the Cryengine is way more optimized now than when Crysis was built. http://www.incrysis.com/wik... I dunno with the 512mb max on consoles you're looking at a low/medium settings mix. It'l look nice but will be severely limited by consoles.
If Crysis 2 could run on consoles, why are people buggin' out on whether the PS3 can run Crysis 1?
crysis 2 didnt have fully destructable, MASSIVE fully exporable environments crysis 2 was linear with crappy very limited physics compared to crysis 1. and crysis 2 on consoles ran on LOW-MEDIUM crysis 1 settings so what does that tell you ? please do some research on crysis 1 and you'll understand
Why not just do a Crysis Trilogy Collection & get all three games on Consoles ?
LMAO!!! I love all the Crysis fanboys that come out to defend that very VERY unoptimized game.
lol you ppl make me laugh so fucking hard! You must be retards? Stop making if pc is so far ahead! Fuck!!!! Did you not see that Uncharted 3 got best graphics award over all pc games at gametrailers! And other sites too! Look in my opinion, the best looking game is BF3 on pc, but ffs it aint a generation ahead over the ps3 or even the 360! Open you eyes. Graphics aint always about how realistic a game looks, its about artstyle, design, etc. In terms of realism, BF3 probably looks the closest to real life (And Crysis 1 jungles), but in terms of graphics, uncharted 3 looks close enough to compete with them. And i just know that THE LAST GUARDIAN will blow ppl away, not in terms of how real it looks, but in terms of scale. No, and i mean no pc game got the scale God of War 3 had, and yet THE LAST GUARDIAN will be better i believe! Stop with the consoles looks bad. ffs anti-aliasing and making a game look that better! Yea DX11's tesselation or what ever they call it, sure look good, but BF3 aint a generation ahead of Uncharted 3 (BF3 is the pc's best looking game and Uncharted 3 the consoles best looking game). Believe me, they wont give Uncharted 3 best graphics if it looks a generation short of BF3! Yea imo BF3 looks better, but Uncharted 3 looks fucking amazing, and the animation is brilliant in both games. LOOK, MOST OF UNCHARTED 3's EPIC SCENES WILL BE SCRIPTED, BUT FFS, A GAME ONLY HAVE TO IMPRESS THE FIRST TIME YOU PLAY IT THROUGH. Not all ppl have the time to play games over and over again. But i can tell you one thing, and do " me on it!!! UNCHARTED 3's SCRIPTED SCENES WILL BLOW BF3's NON SCRIPTED IN ENGINE SCENES OUT OF THE WATER!!! a building falling apart in terms of physics, cant look as good as a building falling apart as a scripted scene, gaming ain't that good yet!! Just look at BF3's destruction on the buildings, it just ain't that good. It might be the best physics of destruction yet, but it is not as good as scripted events in games! GET THE PICTURE??? ID RATHER PLAY UNCHARTED 3 WHICH BLOWS ME AWAY EVERY 10 MINUTES, THAN A GAME WHICH JUST LOOK GOOD WITH IN ENGINE PHYSICS (not talking bout BF3 - BF3 looks great, and got alot of scripted scenes too)!!!!!!! In the end, games only have to impress me the first time i play it, for i wont have time to play it again, and even if i had the time, there is way too much games, to turn back to ones you already completed??
The PC is that far ahead...from a technical standpoint in running real time effects within the game. There is a reason Uncharted 3 like KZ3 and Gears of War 3 and the rest of console games have almost NO real time dynamic lighting and soft shadow effects with real time procedural destruction all in one package. It cannot handle it without major compromises. That is what makes PC gaming that far ahead. And Tessellation is a big deal. The differences with it enabled and not is quite the difference http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... All one has to do is look at the recent DX11 patch for Crysis 2 on the PC using Tessellation. The difference is huge. And that is a PATCH not a game built with DX11 from the ground up. Uncharted 3 looks amazing but as you even said, its all PRE RENDERED or scripted. The fact that PC games can do visuals like Crysis 1/Metro 2033/BF3/Witcher 2 just to name a few... and do it running a full REAL TIME DYNAMIC Lighting/Soft Shadow/Procedural Destructible Environment puts the PC MILES ahead of these consoles. That's why PC's are generations ahead of consoles. The PS3/Xbox360 cannot do those effects without major compromises to the game itself.
I hear what you say, but its not generations ahead. Better looking shadows doesnt make a generation difference. Tessellation is brilliant, but that new tech used in dx 11, so vs a 6 year old gaming console the difference isn't that big! When will you see the real difference??? WHEN THE NEW CONSOLES COME OUT! Then you will see the difference is major! If they really build a game for a high-end pc using tech just for that pc with the lates dx11 settings, it would look great, but still not ps2 vs ps3 difference! On paper pc is so far ahead, but when it comes to the games, then soz, it just aint as far ahead as the paper say it is! Just remember, BF3 will be on ps3 also, but it aint a match for Uncharted 3! The pc one yea, with all the latest dx 11 stuff, will look better than Uncharted 3 no doubt, but no generations ahead in terms of look! I dont even know what point im tryin to make, but all i can say is that ps3 can go for at least another 2 years before it really looks retarded in gaming visuals. BTW to those ones telling you, you can build a high end pc for under $1000 that runs every game full, should go ahead and post links, for buying a pc under $600 wont be able to handle ps3 games. THAT IS WHY CONSOLES ARE SO GOOD, YOU NEVER UPGRADE AND YOU PLAY ALMOST (IF NOT) PC QUALITY GAMES FOR FUCKING $300! May consoles live forever! PS4, PS5 etc.
@D3athc3ll PC's under $1000 that will run almost all games at max settings: http://www.ibuypower.com/St... http://www.ibuypower.com/St... http://www.ibuypower.com/St... PC $600 and under running games at higher detail than consoles and better frame rates: http://www.ibuypower.com/St... http://www.ibuypower.com/St... http://www.ibuypower.com/St... http://www.brighthub.com/vi... http://www.tomshardware.com... All those PC's run games at higher resolutions than the consoles 720p and quite a few of those games on those budget PC's are using Anti-Aliasing. So in fact they are running games better than consoles. Heck they are running crysis 1 lol All those PC's are DX11 capable. "Just remember, BF3 will be on ps3 also, but it aint a match for Uncharted 3!" You will get no arguments from me with that. Uncharted 3 will look better than BF3 on the PS3...but here is the thing to remember... Uncharted 3 is not rendering a destructible environment nor is most of its lighting engine/soft shadow effects done in real time. BF3 is doing this. I would love to see Uncharted 3 render what BF3 is rendering and see if it looks the same... You make good points D3ath3ll...have a good one.
Crysis 1 on a console?! This is freaking news to me! Were there other stories about it? I never saw them. Great for console-only gamers.
They can make i run on consoles....but the question is...at what cost to performance and looks? The game will be reduced in quality all around...
Meh... I think I'll get Far Cry 3 instead.
