(according to Cevat Yerli takes the CryEngine 3, the PlayStation 3 through the limit)
And they say the xbox360 and ps3 versions will be identical. looks like even a capable developers like crytk can,t master the ps3 and use the cell SPEs effectively.

Ghostsmoker3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

will be identical in the end when they're going to be released. The engine pushes the PS3 to its limits. On one hand the CPU(PS3) is stronger but on the other hand the GPU(360) is stronger. Sometimes the PS3 runs better and sometimes the 360 does the better job. But like I said above the final product will be nearly identical - that's what has been said so far.

Motion3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

I have have no source for this, but I do remember reading a while back that the graphics should be similar/same between ps3 and 360. However, since the cell is a number cruncher, the ps3 will likely have better physics enabled. Again, I'm not stating this as fact, but do remember reading it somewhere.

lol, PR BS talk to promote their multiplat game on all platforms. They'll come out say something to make the PC base feel good about their version.. then do the same for the PS3 & 360 bases.

It's all just BS PR babble to make sure their game sells on all available platforms.

i_am_interested3190d ago

what do you expect from 3rd party multi-platform games

Pootangpie3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

they have specifically said both Cell and the 360 CPU are nearly indentical in performance and power it's sony's damn fault for splitting into some retarded SPE setup instead of the standard core setup that both the 360 and PC use but then again what the hell does IBM know they only designed both of the damn CPU's and it's funny you go against Crytek considering there far more capable of developers then any sony exclusive developer what's next your going to try to say carmack doesn't know what the hell he's talking about either

If they take the PS3 to its limits then the game will surpass U2 and KZ2 (and up and coming games) visually and in terms of processing quantity.

If the game will be identical on both consoles, then the 360 version will also surpass U2 and KZ2.

So the question isn't "did they take the PS3 to the max" but "did they actually take 360 beyond what has been shown"

either way, I find it almost a paradox really.

PS3 maxed + 360 equal port = 360 > than what's been shown ever

so I'm curious, but skeptical.

DW3190d ago

the same mombo jumbo was just going through my head.

Crysis = visual master piece of the fps age
Crysis 2 = on ps3 and on 360 look the same

wait ... but it looks better than KZ2 ... so how da blue blazing final fantasy summons does that work?

i_am_interested3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

of course it will look better than killzone 2

by march 2011 killzone 2 will already be 2 years old, and thats if they make it out by march 2011

i love how you guys are making it sound like the graphical barrier for consoles should have ended with killzone 2 for the rest of this console generation back in february 2009 and that any games from here on out that look better on 360 automatically defuses the notion that ps3 has more graphical power

offwhiteazn3190d ago

i like how users on this site say this game will push the ps3 to it's limits and totally bullshit their reasons why. you think you know what you're talking about, but you really don't.

bjornbear3190d ago

the point is, KZ2 is something we have NOT seen on the 360, not even close.

U2 can also be a bar of comparison, but KZ2 is a FPS, like crysis, and hence better to use as a standard.

since NOTHING like KZ2 has even come to the 360, it is to say

IF crysis 2 on PS3 = crysis 2 on 360


IF crysis 2 on PS3 > KZ2 PS3 (since KZ2 did not push PS3 to max according to Guerilla)

THEN logically

crysis 2 on 360 > KZ2

however, since even today nothing comes close to KZ2 on 360, its quite a stretch to think this ehm? =/

baum3190d ago

"but on the other hand the GPU(360) is stronger. "

This kind of bullsh1t is still being regurgitated? The RSX has actually more "potential" (i.e. higher theoretical horsepower), it just happens that the 360 GPU is a lot more flexible due to its unified shader architecture. Consoles aren't PCs so they can be taken advantage of to the fullest. RSX coupled with the cell can make wonders, just look at God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2.

SilentNegotiator3190d ago

.....then wouldn't logically it be:
Crysis 2: "on Ps3 > on 360"?

BattleAxe3190d ago

I'm surprised that the gaming community hasn't gotten tired of graphics comparisons between the PS3 and 360. We know what each console is capable of so lets just buy the game on whichever platform and enjoy. This crap has gotten so boring.

About Crysis, I just hope they improve Crysis 2 over the original.

i_am_interested3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

i expect crysis 2 on 360 to look better than killzone 2

killzone 2 will be 2 years old by march 2011

are there people that dont expect crysis 2 on 360 to look better than killzone 2? if there arent than i dont get what the big deal is

? but it doesn't matter most PS3 guys are getting it on PC, because as many of them have said with mass effect 2 it is the superior platform (plus cheaper games) or does that only work when somethings exclusive.

wollie3190d ago

I think if ME2 was availible on the PS3, PS3/PC gamers would choose the PS3. Since it's not, they will get it on the PC. I don't really see your point.

dp2774073190d ago

your right id rather play a game on my huge ass tv then on my monitor thats why i'll get mass effect on the pc since I dont own a 360 anymore.I mean I could hook my pc up to my tv but thats really annoying

gtamike1233190d ago

Yeah I play 360 games on my PC and PS3 games on my PS3 :)

Motion3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

I agree with some of what you say. I'm definitely getting this for PC over my ps3. Same with mass effect, BFBC2 and borderlands. Why use a controller for a fps when you could use a mouse and keyboard? As well as all the other points you bring up.

However, I don't understand the comment "or does that only work when somethings exclusive. " Hell, if something is exclusive you have no choice but to get it for that platform. In example, world of warcraft is a PC exclusive. Halo 3 is a 360 exclusive. Uncharted 2 is a PS3 exclusive. They only exist on those platforms. Don't go give me that "console exclusive" BS. You can't ignore an entire platform (in most cases pc) to claim exclusivity to a game.

DW3190d ago

... these next gen consoles can all support a mouse and keyboard; why aren't devs building games around that? The PS3 is even more suited for that given it's usb ports and keyboard and mouse functionality.

Meh, Crysis never interested me that much. I'm sure it will look great though.

Arnon3190d ago

For shame. Crysis was incredibly fun. In all honesty, before I purchased Crysis, the only thing that I thought it had going for it was it's graphics. Turns out, it's one of my favorite PC games now. Very creative story. Good dialogue. Nigh-perfect gameplay. Great controls. Amazing graphics... I mean, it's a great package.

Sez 3190d ago (Edited 3190d ago )

Have you tried out the mods. I'm currently playing two called abduction crysis and jumper. Those two are my favorite mods.

On topic: I can't wait for this game to be released. I'm getting crysis 2, rage, FFXIV,SC2. On my pc. I know the mods will be sick.

reaferfore203190d ago

For those with lesser computers out there; you might not wanna load these screens they just might destroy your processor with their awesome!

gtamike1233190d ago
