PCG compares the graphics of the PC and Xbox 360 version of Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo. Surprise: PC is not that much ahead! Check the screenshots after the jump! Hint: Click on "Bild in Originalgröße" to see the actual 720p size.
i've played the 360 version and the pc version on max settings. The pc version just looks better but thats obvious. The game looks surprisingly good for console the only thing i dont like is some things like plants pop into the screen.
Crytek said that Crysis 2 “Taps Every Last Ounce Of Console Power” Lol.
It was just confirmed yesterday that Crysis 2 was built for consoles first with pc being the afterthought. Don't expect much when that happens. Add Crysis to the list of franchises that have become infected with Consolitus. The germ is spreading. Only a couple franchises are left that are still immune...for now
not really....they did say Kingdoms will use all the power of the 360 and crysis 2 wont cuz its multiplat.
Just look at all those jaggies in the 360 version. haha Nice job on dumbing down of your game Crytek...wow.. MS/Xbox they need to die a slow and painful death.
Crytek's reputation is ruined, imo. Battlefield 3 is gonna launch, and Crytek will be dethroned. They must be pretty bummed.
pc demo is direct x 9 only pc demo has locked settings and then people started rumours about crysis 2 now eveybody is talking and dont know what there talking about the only thing we know is the demo is direct x 9 and press start to play thats about it remember now direct x 9 used shader 3.0 and direct x 11 uses shader 5.0
"Crytek said that Crysis 2 “Taps Every Last Ounce Of Console Power” That would explain why 360 runs Crysis2 so much better than PS3. 360's superior architecture gives it the clear advantage that we've seen over and over since it's release. I'm just glad that Crytek didn't dumb down the 360 version because of ps3's problems of trying to keep up the frame rates. Go Crytek.
Yes, the PC demo is dx 9 only. The final release version is also DX9 only. Crysis 2 is using older tech than even Crysis which is 4 years old. Crysis 2 was made with consoles being priority and left PC gamers out in the cold after we were the only ones that supported crytek with the first game and made the sequel possible. That is why PC gamers are angry.
we dont know kaz thats the whole point your just assuming everything is uncomfirmed at the moment its all speculation i guess you dont understand that until the game drops nothing is confirmed
no, actually everything I said has been confirmed. Think about it, do a side by side comparison, crysis looks way better, way more photo-realistic than crysis 2. consoles are destroying gaming. are you really that blind? http://exophase.com/21714/r...
it does look good, 3D is a let down though
what's with the contrast settings?
I noticed that too. The 360 seems really dark and the PC is washed out.
yeh if anyone is gonna compare to pc. they need to rethink before posting and follow a few simple rules. on the pc front. TYPE OF VIDEO CARD (ATI/NVIDIA) ANTI ANALIZING ON OR OFF LASTLY WHAT VIDEO CARD AND THE RESALUTION. NEED I HAVE TO MENTION THE SETTING
Seriously yeah that's idiotic . Whden you say "the pc" specify a config or at least rank them among tiers from low end to high end .
The 360 has a setting on automatically that makes every game darker and more cobtrast heavy when using hdmi. It's like rgb full on ps3 but it is on automatically. I think pc gamers were expecting an entirely different game. You guys get better effects, better textures, higher resolution and 60fps and dx11 down the line which will further upgrade the visuals. you guys should be happy, from what i saw on youtube from the leak the game looks and plays magnificent.
Umm...I don't think you know exactly what rgb full on the ps3 does. RGB full, if your tv supports it, displays a colour range of 0 to 255. Normally, it would be from 16 to 235. So you get a wider range. If you turn the setting on, of course at first the screen will become darker, but that is because you haven't calibrated your tv's brightness and contrast yet. When calibrated, the brightness will more or less be the same as original, only difference is you will get greater detail from your blacks. You can download a file which is an image file to help you for your brightness and contrast calibration when the full rgb setting is on. More details on this website: http://www.spitelords.net/2... Although this post is not much on topic, I just thought it would be beneficial if I cleared your misunderstanding. Peace.
yup rbg full doesnt make anything darker . It is darker because your tv doesnt support it . So the black get crushed along with some details . Wich is why it's weird to always see people advice to always tick on FULL RGB . Plenty tvs dont always support it and limited rgb is mostly limited in name anyway .
I know what it does. My old tv used to get crushed blacks but my new tv has the setting for black level so i don't need to use rgb full. I was talking about the 360. I'm guessing they had the setting on and it is why the picture is way more contrasted and a bit crushed in the black department. What you guys said is true but i was just saying i think they captured it with that setting.
German sites sucks.
Not much ahead because crytek are some lazy asses. Not option for graphics, no way to tweak much, not even DX10/11. Seriously crytek, WTF.
Their locked fool. Its a beta/demo The full options will be available after release and Dx11 will be available in a patch. This is not Crytek's fault, its EGAY's for rushing the project.
A patch for DX11 lol Tesslation and all are not something you make in a week and give as a patch. It should have been part of the full game from scratch.
Well yes its a let down but i think this is just another example of PC games being compromised because of consoles. This is why i never ever liked it when PC games goes multi or any other exclusive for that matter. While this is dissapointing i am still getting it because it will still be one of the best FPS this year. For PC this year my hopes are pinned on The Witcher 2.
I am glad the 360 Version is looking really good. Downloaded the PC demo last night but have not been able to play it.
The PC demo is still stuck with DX9.
Really? Maybe because it's DX9?Maybe because the contrast in these screens are CLEARLY different on from another? Freakin' german sites should vanish from N4G.
Consoles still cant touch the PC regardless of petty claims. And where does the ps3 stand in all of this nonsense? Is it just 360 hype, or is the ps3 about to receive yet another sub par port? Why cant these idiots who take screen shots ever balance out the damned video settings ie contrast? Pointless bloody comparison right here.
The ps3 is running its own version of cryengine3 becuase they want devs to pick it up,these comparisons are crap & only help herd sheep in a certain direction. The PC will always rule over consoles as long as its open & doesnt breed sheep like the consoles do.
Hopefully DX10/11 make this game radically better looking than the console version, or else Crytek is falling down on the job.
You got to give them credit,they Worked on the 360 ps3 and pc and it looks solid. Crysis 1 was pc only.
Pc version still looks better, but that broken aa has to go along with the ugly bloom.
Crysis 2 on the 360 needs some serious work. There's texture pop ins, bad aliasing, low resolution textures, hit detection problems. Don't let the screen shots fool you. I've been playing this game for 12 hours the last 2 days. And this game is not ready by any stretch of the imagination on 360.
Yeah the texture and object pop in is awfull the game looks better when not in motion on 360.
@playaplayer I played a few hours myself and did not have the problems you describe.
I game only on Sony consoles. but for the love of the world you can not compare a closed and old platforms to an open and new one.
If you look at the water in this pic the 360 looks better, no way will the Xbox-360 do better water than a PC, also the textures look better, regards the contrast levels I use a VGA cable but on 360 you change the reference levels, no need for it to look that dark, but anyway IMO they got these screens mixed up. http://www.gamesaktuell.de/...
Less contast on this acreen so you get a better idea, is the top one really Xbox-360? I find that crazy if it is because the 360 looks better? http://www.gamesaktuell.de/...
Ok maybe i'm wrong? http://www.gamesaktuell.de/...
They better delay the PC version because I'm not pay 50 bucks for a console port.
so you never bought a game this gen ?
singleplayer is where its at. multiplayer is ugly.
im laughing really hard right now. You know why? Because crytek just made huge idiots of themselves. 1. They pissed of PC gamers by dumbing down the PC version pretty badly. Crysis 1 and PC gamers is what elevated crytek to their present status. Never forget that. 2. They havent made console gamers happy because of texture pop-ins and promising to be the best looking game on consoles ever. That hasnt happened because of KZ3 and UC3. So basically... no one is happy. Maybe they will get more sales though b/c consoles dont get pirated so much. Still this is pretty funny... Oh yeah... As for crysis 1... Its easy to be king of graphics when the game is made so demanding that just now current gfx cards are finally able to play it maxed at around 60 fps. and the original game came out 2007. THATS 4 YEARS Ago people. A good dev is not the one that makes the best looking AND playing game... But the one that makes the best looking and playing game for the masses. (even if its middle range pc hardware).
lol...the 360 version is SMOTHERED in jaggies everywhere, screens do not begin to show the horrendous amount of aliasing in the console version, also, there are virtually NO PC GAMERS on the planet who game in the 1996 resolution of 1280x720 1600x900 is the lowest res monitor you can even buy today and that is like a 19" or smaller, every TV sold over 32" is 1080p unless it is some garbage costco speacial The pc version DESTROYS the console version all that said, it looks good for a console game so did bioshock, it looks as good on 360 as bioshock did on 360
yeah the biggest difference I noticed between the 360 and pc versions is the texture popins on the 360. graphically the 360 version is very impressive but the pop ins are kind of annoying at least after playing the pc version
