great now I can find out what happened. I played Crysis 2 and was like "what is going on?" lol

Laypoof2325d ago

HAHA, that was actually a big surprise! I wonder how they managed to squeeze all that into 512MB of RAM...amazing!

ShinMaster2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

Lol I kid. But seriously. Counter Strike also :O

It seems to have added features and (even if it's running on un-modded 2007 specs) it's at least guaranteed to run on my system!

TheIneffableBob2325d ago

@ShinGino
Counter-Strike came out on the original Xbox ya know

EVILDEAD3602325d ago

Huh is right though..

Had they done this in the first place, Crysis 2 would have been way more successful on consoles overall.

Great announcements..Count me in..most console gamers never got to play the original..it's great we finally get this chance.

yabhero2325d ago

It's easy actually since the ram's not being used for anything else like say running windows in the background

evrfighter2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

This is actually a good thing. now they can see what happens when a game gets consolized firsthand. Depending on how it looks I guess. I imagine the popin is going to be terribad.

Iroquois_Pliskin2324d ago

wow, holy mofo! When is this coming out? And does anyone know how much it will cost?

dirthurts2324d ago

Next month, and for 30 bucks last I saw.

Obelisk922324d ago

Actually a great idea.
Let's rush the release of the second game, and let's release the first game a few months after!

Seriously... who decided this?

DaTruth2323d ago

Funny, my last comment was something along these lines!

Take my money... please! Day 1!

"this April Fool joke is like 5 months late!"

and then WTF? it's real?! wow...but EA should market this cleverly. no one wants to pay full price for 1 old game! make all 3 games or just Crysis 1 and 2 collection for $60, then we may talk!

jetlian2325d ago

DL only no disk version

PRHB HYBRiiD2325d ago

well it's and old game for pc gamers but this is new on consoles.

xXtremeHDGamerXx2325d ago

It looks good not PC good but console good. I wasn't expecting it to come out this soon in October damn that's next month 0_0. I was thinking it would be coming out in early 2012.

-Alpha2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

Which is why I'll still be picking it up on PC: much cheaper price, visually a lot better looking, and mods.

Great news for console owners though, little odd that they release it after Crysis 2, but now people can be motivated to pick up both if they already have not

DaTruth2323d ago

"Which is why I'll still be picking it up on PC: much cheaper price, visually a lot better looking, and mods."

Not on my PC that wasn't anything good 8 years ago when I bought it!

RedDead2325d ago

First thing you guys gotta do is swim out to the Ships. It's fun I swear.

SantistaUSA2324d ago

hehehe and don't forget to look for the shark while you are at it! :p

dirthurts2324d ago

Oh yeah. I love making it out to the ships. fun times :) he he.

NewZealander2325d ago

hell yeah, this is awesome news!

might have to go back and replay crysis 2 again.

bumnut2325d ago

It will make you realize how limited Crysis 2 was compared to the original.

NewZealander2325d ago

from what i gather this is going to be a download game, anyone know how many GB it would be, or if theres going to be a retail copy?

Undeadwolfy2325d ago

My guess is just short of 10gb.

Crazyglues2324d ago

This is going to be Awesome.. Day One buy for me..

huge fan of the game.. this thing was Amazing on PC, so it will be interesting to see how well they were able to capture that feel and look, and put it on a console..

Great news. My computer couldn't quite run it.

qwertyz2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

thats 360 footage ? looks incredible but still not nearly as good looking as the pc version running high with no AA or AF at 720p but it looks incredible for a console game.

@below

so yes I'm a pc fanboy so what?its not like what I said is a lie anyways and some of you p3 fanboys are even more delusional than I am. the game does look amazing on 360 looks even better than gears 3/uncharted 3/crysis 2(console version) and everything else on consoles for that matter. looks like crytek knows how to wake the powers of the 360 no wonder MS has been getting romantic with them lately.

the pc version running at medium with 8xaa 16xAF @1080p still looks significantly better than this or anything else on consoles anyways so consoles still fail. the ps3 version will probably look worse than this just like what happened with crysis 2. the textures look terrible, the alpha effects are low res, the skyboxes are static, the draw distance is very little LOL but it still looks better than anything else on consoles but fails hard when compared to the pc version

when this launches ps3 fanboys are going to claim that its not the best looking game on consoles because its on 360 lol just like they did with crysis 2 even most review sites said the 360 version is the best looking console game which it is.

MaxXAttaxX2325d ago

""but still not nearly as good looking as the pc version running high""

Obvious comment about PC having better graphics is obvious :P

CaliGamer2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

Lol. Way to state the obvious. The comment wasn't even needed bro. PC are upgradable, PC's look better, why even bother??

EDIT: Beat me to it Nathan... Well done sir.

MysticStrummer2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

@Nathan and Cali - It's just what qwertyz does. He usually does a whole copy and paste PC rant, even in articles about games that are only on consoles.

sak5002325d ago

Throw in a pc with a 512MB ram and with a memory sharing VGA from 2005 and see how that "beast" will show Crysis viz a viz 360.

I remember my 4870x2 ($550+ card) struggling to give me decent rates few years before even at medium settings. I would gladly play this game knowing that i wont have to tweak my system and download the latest drivers or how to keep it from overheating while playing this game on my 360.

Currently run both Dead Island and Deus EX maxed on my PC but i still love to play on 360.

My pc config is:

Core i5 760 8mb 2.8 o/c 4.01Ghz watercooled.
2 x 2GB DDR3 1600mhz
1 x 128SSD SATA for O/S progs
1 x 250GB SATA
1 x 500 GB SATA
1 x 80GB PATA
EAH5870 1 GB DDR5 o/c 930/4800

CGI-Quality2325d ago

Most reviews did NOT call Crysis 2 the best looking console game. Killzone 3 had more reviews calling it that.

OT: Seems like a mistake to release this with little time to prepare and so close to Battlefield 3/Modern warfare 3. It may be slaughtered at retail.

SilentNegotiator2325d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

People making obvious comments about PC games potentially looking better (with a good setup. that is). What a bore. Do you people ever get tired of stating the obvious? Is it to make yourself feel better or do you think the millionth time seeing an obvious statement will change someone's mind?

"Throw in a pc with a 512MB ram and with a memory sharing VGA from 2005 and see how that "beast" will show Crysis viz a viz 360"

LOL, well, at 512MB with a windows OS, you're already using up pretty much all of it.

Edit: Chill out, sak. I was only chiming in. There's OBVIOUSLY some comprehension issues here, alright.

sak5002325d ago

@ silent

"LOL, well, at 512MB with a windows OS, you're already using up pretty much all of it."

So you clearly missed out my point above i made about the specs of pc then? I know i got all the disagrees from console owners even though i stated the points in consoles' favor.

Comprehension problems i guess.

nycredude2324d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

qwertyz

Crysis 2 may be the best looking game on the 360, but on the Ps3 there are many games IMO way ahead of it. If you stop humping your 360 and pc long enough to grow a pair of decent eyes you may realized how full of shit your comment is.

With new hardware crysis 1 and two aren't the powerhouses they used to be. My freaking laptop runs both maxed out at 1080p!

PS you are really smoking the good stuff if you think Crysis on 360 looks better than uncharted 3.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32324d ago

@NYcredude...Many games? You may have your opinions but that right there I would consider full on horse manure. Many? That must mean 1 or 2 in PS3 gaming language, lol.

Sarcasm2324d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

Actually Crysis 1 for PC didn't run as well as it should have. By that I'm talking about very low CPU and GPU utilization.

Despite people's comments about Crysis 2 being a console port, that game will max out my GTX580 90-100% (with everything on max, tessellation etc.) and CPU usage at 70-80%.

Crysis 1 runs like doo doo butter even on a very good hardware. I'm guessing they tried to optimize it much more for the console versions but I'm going to assume its going to be sub-hd.

Megaton2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

Why would anyone be crying over this? The game is 4 years old, didn't suffer from consolitis because the PC version was the only version at launch, won't support mods, and will end up looking worse than the original anyway.

MaxXAttaxX2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

I guess he said that because it seems most PC fans like to brag about that game.

I mean, if this is about experiencing the story and gameplay, then yeah, it's understandable.

Unless.... we're just talking about graphics only....

Megaton2325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

I don't see anyone mad in here. I've never even bothered to pirate Crysis for my PC. Always pass over it during Steam sales. Meh.

radphil2325d ago

@Megaton

I've learned from watching the main population on this site is that common sense and logic doesn't exist.

You say anything good a comparison of console and PC, they call you an elitist. If you say anything legit negative about Sony, they chastise you. You say anything bad about Gamestop they cheer and egg you on.

Septic2325d ago

Actually Megaton has a point. You fanboys really need to stop being hypocritical idiots for once.

Immature trolling comments like 'u mad bro?' just indicate how worthless your input is on this site.

On topic. The game looks amazing. There are too many games coming out now for me to justify buying this but if I do, I'll probably buy it on PC. I know, a few years too late but better late than never.

vickers5002325d ago

"Immature trolling comments like 'u mad bro?' just indicate how worthless your input is on this site."

As opposed to those comments who do nothing but state obvious facts just to be douchebags?

Example: "This game wont look as good as PC, even at medium settings with [insert irrelevant graphical feature here]

Yeah, no sh*t, it's a fact that doesn't need to be repeated, and the only people who do repeat it are elitist, insecure, douchebag pc fanboys who are always trying to one up us console folk who are simply trying to enjoy a nice piece of news. Oh but PC fanboys wont have that, they have nothing better to do with their pathetic lives than to come into these articles and waste their time posting insults and starting fanboy wars.

Looking good for a 512MB console made 6 years ago. I was quite disappointed at the original Farcry (the first one) version on console back in 2006 but this looks very good and fun.

dirthurts2324d ago

You mean Farcry Instincts? That was not the original Far Cry, is was game made specifically for consoles. Go back and play the real Far Cry on pc, it'll kick your arse.

ShinFuYux2325d ago

The gameplay for this game was god awful. I remember getting so irritated trying to control that damn tank or any vehicle in the PC version.

I'll pass.

CaliGamer2325d ago

Might be better with the controller. They seem to have made some improvements, if your problem was a wide spread issue, I am sure they took a look at it.

sak5002325d ago

My problem was playing in slow mo about 15~20fps even at acceptable graphical settings. So i didnt bother much after that.

This looks much more fun than the pc version.

Shackdaddy8362324d ago

Why was that so hard for you? It took me like 5 seconds to get used to it.

MrBeatdown2325d ago

With it being downloadable, I hope they price it around $20 or so. It'll be a day one buy for me if they do that.

PRHB HYBRiiD2325d ago

$20 would be a steal .../ always wanted to play the original crysis :)

jbiz3302324d ago

confirmed 20 bux.. Also its running on CryEngine 3. Should be interesting.
