Crysis Is “Not” An Xbox Live Arcade Title

RipTen - Late last week, we reported that the single player portion of the original Crysis would make its way onto consoles sometime next month. However, it seems media outlets were confused by EA’s press release for some unknown reason and reported that Crysis would hit Xbox Live Arcade.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not sure why some sites assumed it was an XBLA title. The press release didn't even mention it. Oh well.

IGN said it was coming to XBLA and everyone else just sorta assumed they were right. As if Crysis could ever be under 2gb. SSDD.

call it what you want but does it really matter? Either way it's still coming. This article making it seem like some kind of catastrophe over gamerscore limits differences.

*Re-reads article*
......ummm, no it doesn't. It just explains that it's a Games of Demand game and that it's not an XBLA game because Crysis is outside the limits set for XBLA games.

I'm disappointed that Crysis won't be available on disc. I was hoping that RE4 HD would be on disc, too. Oh well.

Stated that it was coming to "PSN & XBL". If people are wondering where all of this confusion came from.

EA's official site right now:

Interesting. I guess they screwed up, or else they just think "XBLA" is more recognized than "Games on Demand" in regards to marketing....and it probably is.

correcting bad reporting for the win

Sigmarue2652d ago

Journalism, you so funny.

VictoriousB132652d ago

Don't you need a credit card to download something from Games On Demand? Or will you be able to use standard points?

STK0262652d ago

You can use standard MS points for Games on demand, I think you need to press "Y" or "X" to convert the price from dollars to MS points.

If you don't have a credit card all you have to do is start calling credit card companies until someone gives you one.

If you can't get a credit card that way, then all you have to do is go to a bank, and ask for a debit card, which works exactly like a credit card but there is a balance behind it.

If you still can't get a credit card after that, you can go to the supermarket, drug store, or any convenience store and buy a credit card. Failing that...

doesnt that mean i wont get to use MSP to purchase it?

i dont put my credit information on my accounts anymore, so this kinda sucks.

TheMyst2652d ago

NEVER give MS any credit card information, never! They will charge for XBL even if auto renewal is off, it's just a hassle. I had to call, wait for god knows how long to turn off auto renewal. They did it, a month goes by and somehow MS charges for a month of XBL. I get charged 10 bucks plus 35 cause I didn't have money on the card, WTF! Somehow, auto renewal just magically turned back on. So NEVER ever put any credit cards on XBL never, MS is absolutely greedy and it's a hassle to get them deleted

/end rant.

The 35.00 sounds like your bank nailed you w/ an overdraft fee. THOSE SUCK.

TheMyst2652d ago

Yep, indeed they do suck. Had I now MS would for whatever reason turn auto renewal back on I would have had money there. I really don't get why they turn it back on even after I called.

RyuDrinksTheDew2652d ago

exactly what i was saying, why didnt i get disagrees? haha

it sucks that i might not get to used microsoft points.
