NowGamer: New Crysis 2 images reveal subtle next-gen improvements offered in its DirectX 11 patch.
Crysis does look beautiful
Agreed. But does it look more beautiful? I'm not sure it was massively worth the effort...
What will beat this? - http://media.pcgamer.com/fi... (zoom into the hairs on the face wow!) http://pnmedia.gamespy.com/... http://pnmedia.gamespy.com/... (zoom into the back pack! Teh detail!) http://pnmedia.gamespy.com/... no high res patch needed! Becuz it is already just a pc game! Crytek did great and all but it's a patch! BF3 is built from the ground up for dx11 pc's! with only a port to console in mind. It raped crytek in a massive environment with way better destruction & 64 players! But one this is sure.. Only PC can beat PC! PC vs PC pick your side! Yes call me a pc fanboy!
SUPER WTF! the only thing that crap engine called frostbite does is rape the bloom and depth of field while its textures remain like shit. crytek games will be always better looking thanks to its partnership with nvidia.
Ahem... Are you calling these bad textures? http://img577.imageshack.us...
no proof those shots are in game buddy...
@Camargo2012 I have a degree in CS/IT and have worked on game engines such as Unreal Engine 2 and of course Hammer (Steams Map Editor). So I feel I can talk and say that BF3 looks better, has higher texture resolutions, does parralax mapping better (look it up if you dont know what that is) and doesn't overdo it with HDR or Bloom effects. And as far as bad textures? http://gamersciz.com/wp-con... You are sadly mistaken kind sir.
@pandamobile the pic you posted is not gameplay, it is a CGi you better take a look to the high resolution textures crytek just released, there is a reason why they took too long to release them
@camargo2012 Are you serious with your comment? Maybe you need to look t the pictures provided by the member you commented against. Those are some of the best textures in PC gaming out now. @stu88 And these are all in game shots. We are talking PC gaming and not console gaming here
Let's be honest guys, this beat anything: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The game does look more impressive than running in DX9. Is it a next-gen game? I don't think so. If they could get all those improvements to run at the same scale of the first Crysis, then that may be considered next-gen.
The PS4 and Next Xbox will probably be about as powerful as a high end computer today.
No way out unless they are making a $1200 launch console lol. Look to a low to low-mid range current PC for PS4/720. EDIT: What are you smoking dude? I want some, seems your tripping pretty good on it. PS3 and 360 launched outdated and so will the next gen. Don't forget the PS3 launched here in Australia at $899 and it was already dated tech day 1, not even a mid range PC at the time.
They have 1-2 years to scale down and mass produce the hardware of today. They could easily squeeze that into a $600 box by late 2012/2013.
uh... how much did you think it cost to run even xbox 360 graphics on a PC when it first launched? That's why they make consoles man.
i couldnt tell much of a difference, i would rather save my money and keep playing the console si have now than move to next gen if thats all i get
Ha. Silly console gamers. My $1000 pc maxes crysis 2 ultra at 1080p at 60fps. Lol you get 30fps in dx9 at 720p with low res textures and fake lighting. $2500? Lol please ya for a tri sli system
If this is next gen then graphics have kinda hit a wall. I don't expect to see huge improvements in the 360 and PS3 concerning graphics. i just expect to see Higher framerates, better particle and bump mapping, better online, and native 1080p resolution. - This does look really good. I am impressed though.
