Crytek's executive producer Nathan Camarillo has told GamerZines that Crysis 2 looks exactly the same on PlayStation 3 as it does on Xbox 360, saying that "other than the key prompts you wouldn't be able to tell the difference."
Bad then because the textures in the 360 demo were just dreadful.
thought they where going to take advantage of each system power? or am i thinking of another developer? please remind me who that was if anyone knows what im talking about
I thought the same as you. So people were thinking it would have better lighting and textures on the 360 but better physics and more on screen with the PS3.
I remember this article, since I bookmarked it for some reason. "The interesting thing is we did run a performance analysis on the PS3 devkit, and you know the funny thing is the occupation on all the CPUs, the Cell and the GPUs, is pretty much – the needle is at the limit... There's not much more you can do and frankly the breakthrough was very recent, and otherwise we would’ve had a compromised strategy on the consoles, which we don’t have now. "So I think we will still have an upside, but we're touching the hardware limits already. We do develop very very low level to get that performance out. Like I said, we started three years ago in the research of technology, and we had to dig very deep into the hardware to find the reserves, and say 'oh we have 2% more here, and 1% more here,' and that allowed us actually to get to where we are." Full Article: http://www.neoseeker.com/ne...
Same as = compromising the quality
Crytek's attitude is a bit weird. That article you link up there is from 2009. So, they knew beforehand how they could max out the console? Yet they haven't released a game yet. In contrast to Guerilla who actually have delivered a game about 2 years ago and yet managed to squeeze much more out in their latest release. I never heard them say they reached the boundaries. Well, maybe they have now. I would like to see the same effort from Crytek. Tell us you have done what you could for Crysis2, and you now have a better understanding what you could do for Crysis3. But not - "oh, we reached the max". People who have done nothing but squeezing the PS3 have not, but Crytek, being a cross platform developer has. Yeah, sure /s.
I can see it now *PS3 version is more jaggier then the 360, its also has less textures, lower frame rate, buggy online* thats what heppens when devs say the PS3 version is on par with the 360 version Meh, i never planned on buyin it, well not new anyway, i think my buddy is plannin on buyin it, ill borrow it off him at sum point (he keeps tryin to lend me Blac Ops and i keep sayin "NO MOFO"
Who bubble raped you? Silly me, you cant respond becasue your out of bubbles.
That is funnier than you realize, R2D2.
"Who bubble raped you? Silly me, you cant respond becasue your out of bubbles." he said with his last bubble. lol
It's ironic because you have one bubble as well. I will vote to bubble you up because of the laugh I got out of it.
I'm a victim as well of the Bubble molesters!
So much for "each version will take full advantage of the system it's running on" lol.. Although i expected this when the 360 got the exclusive demo
Ironic that you would say that because while I believe that killzone 3 has overall better graphics than crysis 2 on consoles, the only thing that C2 exceeded K3 in is it's textures imo.
you guys can disagree with kingdavid all you want but from the demo that I played it was definatley dreadful looking except for the lighting thats it.The enviroments where not looking so great at all.I kind of figured that this game wouldnt even come close to pushing any limits on any console considering that its really built for a PC.
They always have and will look low quality... 512MB on both consoles can hold 512MB's of data, if your seriously going to complain about that go buy a fucking PC. You own a console, deal with the H/W limitations; accept them. Consoles arnt the place you want to be if you only care about nice HD crip smooth graphics with HD textures. I own both consoles because I like games. I own a pc for that too, but i also own my PC for 'graphics' like this situation, Crysis 2 only real choice if you have the option is PC. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! King got PWNED.
king david is talking out his @ss. Crysis 2 has great textures for a console game. I would bet anything he hasn't even played it. I bet he watched videos and let his other fanboy buddies on the internet convince him it was bad looking. I've seen people all over the internet who are saying things that makes it obvious they haven't even played it. Aside from that I agree with you about the reasons for why we game on the PC. If you want the absolute best performance then the PC is the way you got to go. That said, the 360 version of Crysis 2 is still extremely impressive. I think it looks better than anything I have seen on consoles before. Crytek should truly be commended.
But one console is pushing 256MB of that 512 to the screen at five times the speed of the other console! I don't know how much of a difference this would make exactly, but the general consensus with computers is "faster = better". They probably wouldn't bother making faster ram if it came with no benefits!
Do you know how often that line has been proven to be true on benchmarks today? Its actually memory timings that make the biggest difference. Memory speeds are rarely truely used (DDR2VDDR3) and more so when you add triple channel into the mix. Timings make the differences, speeds actually very little. This isnt comparing first gen memory vs ddr3, were talking past 5years for this comparison. Look it up for yourself.
It doesn't matter. I get this for PC anyway.
Another year, another Multiplatform game that delusional 360 fans are pretending is on par with PS3 exclusives. Will this ever end? Facts,None of you can provide any evidence or technical proof that Alan Wake is on par with Uncharted,KZ, or hell.. even Gow3. Same with Gears of War.All it is, is a bunch of bots pretending. Same nonsense was said for Metro2033 last year.. its NEVER a 360 exclusive that can stand on its own and fight through the test of time. Its always a future title, or a multiplatform that ends up dropping FPS all over the place, as the Crysis2 demo. With less going on.. like the crysis 2 demo... KZ3 is 32 player & doesn't downgrade the visuals to a 8bit game. 360 can't handle that.. Just like forza can't handle 16, it cant eve handle 8 with cockpits visible it has to shade the windows. UC2's multiplayer isn't downgraded by 90%, like Gears. Every single year...like clockwork. I'm dying over here @ the Gears of War 2 comments, its the fucking unreal engine! My god, have bots no shame? PS3 handles its exclusive, and handles the 360's best efforts which sadly fall short of the mark. Find me a streaming game on the 360, that runs half of Uncharted 1's visuals.You cant, all you get is loading hallways & elevators, and subHD alan wake & halo. Microsofts best efforts say hi. So according to bots, Crytek is the best visual dev known to this gen, considering they've bested every single PS3 exclusive, with the 360's hardware.. right guys? This really what we are going with...? Stick to NPD only sales threads. 360 owners have no clue about visuals, im convinced most of you are blind at this point if you think a sparse crysis2 demo > kz3's mp beta. according to bots: 1. Crysis2 is better than everything on the ps3. 2. Gears of war 2 is better than everything on the ps3 3. Alan Wake(lol) is better than everything on the ps3. So is Crysis2 better than Gears? So that means its infinitely better than Uncharted2/GoW3/Kz3? This makes 0 sense guys. None.
I'm convinced most of you on the strictly PS3 side are truly blind and have no clue about visuals. How else can you explain the ridiculous comments claiming Killzone 3 destroys Crysis 2? I'm sorry but even if you don't agree that Crysis 2 looks better than Killzone 3 there is no way you can claim it is worse. The stuff Crysis 2 is pumping out in the visuals is seriously impressive stuff and if you can't see that it is you who is blind.
hey blu, your boner is showing.
Why say things like this -_- just goes to tell that they didnt push the ps3 to its limits its like having a 9800gt and a gtx 460 and saying this game runs the same on both...
hey shut your mouth.. The PS3 and 360 versions were developed for their respective consoles.. Not one version was ported to the other so if it looks the same than that means that the console doesn't have greater capabilities than the other one.
LOL @ PAINTSVILLE! You're going to explain Crytek's code to us?? LMAO what else do you have in store? Any quantum theories u want to shoot at us?
I'M SOO SORRY PAINTSVILLE!! I MEANT TO HATE ON BATTLEAXE! To quote BattleAxe, "The way i would describe Crytek's code....Imagine you fill up a garbage can with paper cups without crushing them down to maximise the space in the garbage can, and then you tell everyone that the garbage can was 100% full, when in actual fact if you had crushed all the paper cups down, you could have fit 4x as much cups in that same garbage can." LMAO! This always makes me laugh! In a very criticizing, demeaning way! I'm sorry for callin u out paintsville, plz forgive me!
Sounds like Crytek messed up.
Game looks beautiful no matter the case, nobody should be angry. Even though it's just a demo on the 360, I thought it was probably one of the best looking FPS games I've ever seen.
I dont think Raven_Nomad has played to many games in his/her life with a comment like that.On console its alright on PC beast of a game.I dont even play PC games at all but seeing this on a PC would be eyecandy in my eyes.But then you did just answere all those questions out there best fps on a 360 what else do you have to that stands out thats not mutiplatform?
I don't play P.C. games at all, I don't like P.C. gaming, never have. So it's not really my thing. Definitely prefer consoles all the way. Sit back with the ol Xbox 360 in my lounge and play over XBL. Just something about that appeals to me more then sitting straight up in an uncomfortable chair looking at a tiny screen using keyboard and mouse.
Amateur statement from Crytek. "Runs the same as..." Why are they comparing it to the Xbox 360 version? Is that the bench-mark they set? Ridiculous.
What's happened to the good ol' days when devs made the best game possible using the strength of each machine!! Guess costs really have spiralled to the point where picking a common basline to aim for is good enough, rather than expending extra time, money and resources to tailor a game to each platform.
Exclusive exclusive exclusive. No matter the platform, treat crysis 2 as a pc exclusive and then you wont be disappointed well not much anyhow.
but jack i was expecting what they can do with the ps3 rather than what they can do with a pc its kinda like a tactician vs a brute being smart and optimizing for the ps3 and creating a game that trumps all seems more like a technical feat than just making a game look good on pc either way it seems like all their talk about pushing systems wasnt true since they have fallen back on to words that have been said by alot of devs "runs the same as the 360 version" which is NEVER true
Wow, The PS3 must be a beast if it can match the 360.
im tryin to make sense of the statement, but im too smart to digest something this stupid
Lmao , Comment of the year XD
You were all over the place circa 2007, "praising" your console of choice by simply bashing the other in corny, stupid and "provocative" ways, you haven't come out of your cave that much since then, where is your GOD now in 2011, mmh?
That suck cause we all know the Ps3 could do so much better
can you name me a multi plat that looks significantly better than the 3760 version, didnt think so. See the thing is if the game isnt built from the ground up for the ps3 then the ps3 is about the same as the 360 interms of power and in certain aspects the 360 is the more powerful machine. Im no fanboy i have both consoles but i cant believe the ps3 crowd are complaining because crysis 2 looks stunning by any satandard and i think crytek have done a stunning job to get the game looking that good on 5 year old hardware.
Why does everybody say "I'm no fanboy, I have both consoles" evry single time they comment. No one gives a f*** if you have both consoles or not. Just say what you've got to say and leave it at that.
xbox's GPU is more powerful than tht of the ps3,but thts juss abt it,cz the ps3 has bluray and the monstrous cell
@chriski333 If you have both consoles you'd know the differences for 99% of multi-plats is negligible and rarely impacts the fun. And 99% of PS3 AAA exclusives look better than 360 exclusives. PS. I own both consoles... and a Wii :P
Fianl Fantasy 13. Madden 11, and 2k11
WTF are you going on about hennessey86.The 360 is a more powerful machine....REALLY by whose standards?Yours? and yout trying to tell me that Crysis2 is so stunning.Ya okay how did you get that one?The demo was terrible and has shown nothing thats impressive to me or others around.Wow it has good lighting thats all I could see.For an engine thats 5 years old give me a break they have upgraded the engine since then and it still looks just alright.On a PC its a beast hands down so Get your facts straight before you decide to say anything.Look at Killzones engine its just as old but you actually can see the difference in how its been upgraded.I have all three consoles the one thing that makes me different from you is that I can prove it and you cant. Say what you want about having 2 consoles but I highly doubt it.add me if you need your head examined.maltice75 Xbox and finbars75 PS.Oh to doG beLIEFs below me I do agree 100% thats why my xbox is used for Dora the Explorer movies for my daughter just nothing comnpares to the PS3 devs.
1. the 3760 version does not exist 2. i can give you one good example of a multi game that run better and look much better on ps3, ff xiii 3. alan wake was ment to prove the 360 was more powerful, all it achieved was sub 720p and 4xAA @ 30fps, now we have games at 720p with MLAA (16XAA) that can run at 60fps 4. no xbox360 exclusive game has managed to outdo uncharted 1, never mind uncharted 2 or god of war 3 which currently is the best looking game that runs at 60fps, well until killzone 3 comes out in a few days lol, then uncharted 3 is going to make 30 look like something from the stone age 5. i hate fan boys, go buy a ps3, all 360 is is a shooter box and even that has gone now its a casual box with kinect and brain training, last core game will be gears 3, enjoy your future on the casual box
lol, now everyone is blaming the 360 just like for final fantasy 13. I was expecting this
it's not the 360's fault; Crytek made the promise, and Crytek may have failed to keep it.
p.s i own both ps3 and 360 thanks
I also hav both consoles but play alot of games on PS3!
By now Sony 1st and 2nd party studios have shown without a doubt that if you know what you are doing...PS3 games can look almost a generation ahead of 360 games. If what Crytek says is true, then we can safely say that Crisis 2 for PS3 will be substandard if held up against PS3 exclusives. Yes Crytek....GG and KZ3 say hi and they also say you failed.
You're ether deluded, misguided, or misinformed. Which is it? In either case, you seriously overestimate the tech inside the PS3. But then again, this is a typical mindset.
Speaking of misinformed, the correct term should be "any" when referring to 3 or more options....not "either". Then again, this is a typical mistake of those who would disagree with doG's example.
"Either" as a conjunction can mean more than 2 options, "any" cannot however. "this is a typical mistake of those who would disagree with doG's example." You mean someone with a brain between their ears?
He is overestimating the PS3. Even though crytek did fail on the PS3.
- @Big_Dom You're either deluded, misguided, or misinformed. Which is it? In either case, you seriously UNDERestimate the tech inside the PS3. But then again, this is a typical mindset AMONG THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN THE SPECIFICATIONS, AND ARE AWARE OF WHAT EACH CONSOLE CAN BRING TO THE TABLE.
@ Jimmy Riddle: If I'm not mistaken, in a grammatically correct sentence, the word (either) can only mean two or more things when it is placed before the choices as to inform a person in advance that two or more choices will be given. When choices are already given in a sentence using the word either, then it's usage is "devalued" to only two choices. For example, if someone were to say "You can have either corn, or cabbage, or peas", that would be correct; but if you say "There's corn, cabbage, or peas; you can have either one" is incorrect because in it's grammatical vagueness, it is open to two possibilities: that you can have either corn and cabbage or peas, or just corn, or just cabbage, or just peas. Without two other coordinating conjunctions (to correctly say [There's corn, or cabbage, or peas]), what Big_Dom said was actually incorrect. (Takes a swig of sody-pop and burps)
comments like this they never fail top amaze me, I have a ps3 and theres a few games that look slightly better than 360 games but im sure gears 3 will have something to say about that, the ps3 and 360 are really close interms of power. most 360 exclusives are running on old engines, take forza 3 for instance its just running on an updated forza 2 engine. their has been no games built from the ground up for the 360 even alan wake started out as a pc game. Fair play to sony that they are willing to pump money into studios to develop games from the ground up but the wii has proved graphics dont mean anything. If the games good it will sell. Killzone 3 is a great looking game but you can easily spot where they had to sacrifice to keep the game running smoothly as is the same with killzone 2, the textures in parts of the demo were last gen at best.
Umm...last gen textures in killzone 3? Sorry but you sure you're not talking about alan wake? And your excuse for PS3 games exclusives looking better than is that 360 running on old engines? Uncharted 3 runs on a 4 year old update Uncharted 1 engine...that doesn't compromise the way it looks. Then why is it the case for 360? The 360 is a great console but falls behind in technical specifications when compared to the ps3. Thus, ps3 exclusives look better that 360 exclusives. FYI games made from ground up for 360: Fable 2, Gears 2, Gears 3, Ninety-Nine Nights, Ninety-Nine Nights II, Halo 3, ODST, Reach...etc.
Wow finally somebody who uses their brain. Ps3 and 360 are darn near even. Ones better here, the other there. A few games look slightly better on a ps3. I cant tell hardly. Its compairing snes and genesis. Its so close who cares? I was pumped to see killzone 3 but it wasnt the HUGE BESTEST GRAFIX EVA i was expecting from people here. It was beautiful yes not next next gen lol. Uncharted 2 was BEAUTIFUL it looked amazing. Alan Wake looked about as good to me. Am i crazy? I enjoyed alan wake more so i must be.
if you honestly think alan wake looked as good as even uncharted 1 you are speaking out of your arse cos there not even close go play them side by side alan wake is far worse in terms of everything i see im talking to a fanboy
"PS3 games can look almost a generation ahead of 360 games" LOL honestly, the funniest part is, some of you are actually serious about these statements you make. A part of me is worried for you lol
PS3 fanboys are truly delusional. They came up with this idea that the PS3 is more powerful and they cling to it with all their might. It has never been true. Developers have said over and over that the two consoles are very close in power, but these fanboys continue to ignore what the actual experts are saying. I fully agree that Uncharted 2 held the graphics crown on consoles for a period time, but that was just one moment in time. Gears of War 2 also held the crown at one time. But everything constantly changes. Now, curiously enough, the best looking game on consoles is a multiplatform game, Crysis 2. To anybody that actually plays on both consoles it is obvious that they are both very close in power. You want a jump in graphics that is actually noticeable, play on the PC.
@starchild THe PS3 fanboys are right believing the PS3 is more powerful than the 360 the are even facts to back it up. Just look at PS3 exclusives in the past 2 years. They are also evidence of that. If you think Crysis 2 is the best looking game on 360, then you are just as, if not more delusional than any PS3 fanboy on this site.
Starchild also swore up and down that Halo Reach and Alan Wake were the best looking games on consoles and we all know how that turned out. Also Gears 2 never held any graphics crown. Uncharted 1 looks much better and that came out a year before Gears 2.
"PS3 games can look almost a generation ahead of 360 games." Umm no they don't, not even close. It's true that there are a few titles on the PS3 that look better than anything on the 360, but a generation ahead is a massive exaggeration.
^^^ Ohhhhhhhhh! *holds handbag up* Fuck me, it's the grammar police!
@Big_Dom it oh not Ohhhhhhhhh! /S
