According to a statement from Electronic Arts and Crytek, upcoming shooter Crysis 2 features “unparalleled gameplay variety” – something that will be evidenced in a multiplayer demo released on XBLA tomorrow.
Stop the PR talk and give us a demo so we can judge on piece ! Oh wait, xbox only. You lost a customer there.
lol your lost
No, theirs. It's not like I've nothing to play. If crytek (I bought FC, crysis and crysis WH by the way) doesn't feel like PC or PS3 gamers have to taste their game then so be it. I'm not hyped at all for Crysis 2, and I really don't think it'll be worth crysis 1, so no demo, no buy. If crysis had to persuade some, it was PC gamers. They need gamer's money, we don't need their game.
So many games out on PC and with the last Steam sales most PC gamers have so many games on backlog they really dont care. Personally have about 10-15 games on backlog after the last Steam discounts. I wont be purchasing Crysis 2 or any of EAs games until they are on discount, 60usd per game is overkill imo. Also with PC gamers, they usually have a large library to chose from. I currently keep jumping between: Teamfortress 2 Left4dead 2 Warcraft 3 Company of heroes (finishing the campaign) Dirt 2 (finishing the campaign) Hence with the vast library on PC today we really dont care.
the game is 2 months away, we are not even sure if there is going to be a multiplayer demo for PS3 or PC coming out at a later date before then. this sense of entitlement is a joke, crytek owes no one anything. and its not like whining on N4G will do anything except look like a big cry baby. but then again im a PS3 gamer and i will be occupied with killzone 3 beta coming out next week. maybe if PC gamers stop pirating games maybe they dont have to deal with once PC exclusive developers abandoning them
@SJPFTW Its not like Crysis 1 didnt sell well. It sold 3million units as of may 2010(its probably closer to 3.5m by now), which is as good as any console exclusive. Not giving PC gamers a demo has nothing to do with Piracy. It can either be: MS $$ throwing its weight around, Or not showing PC version because the console version will then look last gen. Edit: Infact ill bet the 360 version will be up on torrent before any other version.
oh great I get the feeling we are going to see a $60 price point on pc... sorry I'll pass until a steam sale
You'll come crawling back if it gets class reviews.
Can't wait to play the demo tommorow.. Crysis 2 demo Dead Space 2 Great week for gamers.. Evil
@EVILDEAD360 And dont forget the bulletstorm demo, tommorows going to be a good day
Wow..actually forgot about the Bulletstorm demo Its like Demo Xmas..looking forward to both titles
Your lying! You will buy crysis 2 your upset for now!! Im not buying day one but I just preordered the witcher 2 on steam instead!!
Show us the PS3 and PC version and I might just care a bit.
I'm pretty sure the gameplay will be pretty much the same across all platforms. Graphics, on the other hand......
Graphics will be very simular between both the consoles, both of them trading blows. Since both of them are based on simular technology. However the PC version will be the highlight of the game. Just like any multiplat released. BC2- looks simular on both the consoles, PC verion is way superior Black ops- looks simular on console, PC version superior. MOH- Looks simular on both consoles, PC version way superior.
^ Black Ops simulair on consoles? Did you even play the PS3 version? Treyarch f**ked them up big time. When i watched my brother playing Black Ops on x360, i noticed a HUGE diffrense in graphics.
Its still a small difference when you will include the PC version into the mix. Go ahead try running the PC version even on a 3-4 yr old GPU, max it out to 1080p with 4x AA. The difference between PS3 and Xbox will look piddly in comparison.
Crytek is an actuall AAA game developer. They aint treyarch, all treyarch is good at is leaching off other developer's franchises and making bastardized verisions of it. I have no question Crytek will make a quality game on all three consoles. Crysis 2 is still 2 months away and its still possible they will release multiplayer demos on PS3 or PC.
" Crytek will make a quality game on all three consoles." Consoles = platforms owned by a certain company. PC is open platform thus isnt a Console.
Definitely not missing out on the 360 demo tomorrow. From the game play trailer it's looking mighty impressive so will see.
Great day for demos tomorrow, this and Bulletstorm.
This video is why I love Crysis: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
good, we got sick of very linear FPS cough " call of duty " , linear games are obsolete, for me at least....
Can't wait to try out both crysis 2 & bulletstorm demos Also, reading the articles from Digital Foundry & Lens of Truth comparing both PS3/360 versions of 'em should be interesting..
Why is it interesting using a magnifying glass to look at the differences in the console versions? When clear differences can only be seen when compared against PC.
Well really, only interesting to see how well the engine actually runs on each since it's created on all platforms simultaneously.
Why should DF and LoT opinions be different than anyone else's? Unless you are one of those guys that think their conclusions are actual facts.
Well they can have actual data analysis (FPS, frame tears, etc.) and people can make their own conclusions. But fanboys spouting bullshit isn't quite as useful.
For some reason Im just not getting exited for this game.
Partly due to the fact that they only seem to be showing the 360 version and partly due to the fact that the multiplayer I saw looked epically meh
of multiplayer look meh its not untill you play them that you get a real feel for a game.
I need a PS3 demo before I'm 100% sold on getting it, don't get wrong I'll be downloading it tomorrow on the 360 to see what it looks like and plays like. But I need to see it on the PS3 before I get it on my main console.
This game is gonna be sick!!!
My friend says he is gonna pirate the shit out of Crysis 2 now due to Crytek's demo decision.
'pirate the shit out of it' so just pirate it? I don't see how he could do much more. Let your friend feel like he has some kind of power, in the end he was always gonna pirate it, now he just has an excuse.
I think Crysis 2 will be the best FPS ever! what do you think?
