[IGN] CryENGINE 2 on Consoles Comparable to High Settings on PC  

post #1 of 87
Thread Starter

IGN: What's the performance difference of the CryENGINE on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 compared to the PC? Are you able to tailor the engine to each platform?

Harald Seeley: Yes, we definitely tailor the engine specifically to each platform. More than just the difference in CPU and video hardware capabilities of PCs and consoles is at play here. So are the much smaller memory budgets we must work with, the lack of a hard disk on some models, and the acceptance requirements of the hardware vendors themselves. All have an effect on how we approach each version of the engine.

The surprising thing has been how well the consoles can perform visually, once this tailoring is in place. We expect the final outcome will result in games that look like they're running at high settings, or nearly high settings, on a PC. Actually, we found it as much or more challenging to address the memory limitations of the consoles when converting our current AI system, as we did while converting our rendering engine or physics system, which was not something you might have expected at the start.

IGN: Would you like to share any thoughts as to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360? What about the Wii? Will we see CryENGINE 1 games on it, perhaps?

Harald Seeley: Well there is no doubt that porting our engine to the PlayStation 3 is the more challenging of our two ongoing conversion projects, but that works to our advantage in the end. We feel certain we have the ability to get the most that is possible out of that platform, and therefore PS3 games which run on our engine in the future will definitely stand significantly apart from other games that don't. We haven't seen a great deal of demand for third party engines for the Wii, the limited complexity of games which can be developed for that console also limits the need for the kind of sophisticated tools and middleware which we are known for. So I doubt we will be providing any engine technology for that console in the near term.

Well...except the Wii

Maybe its just cause the picture is small but that looks better than crysis maxed out to me.

this again shows that PC gaming is ahead of its times.

even the very latest console image quality cannot be compatible with a 8800GT, running everything at Very High.

Yes ... so ahead of its time, competing with the PS3 which is a year and a half old, and the xbox 360 which is well over 2 years old ...

Lol ? Is that a joke ?

If by competing you mean, horrible draw lines low FPS and practically NO hardware upgrades and lower quality textures.

Take all that away....
Then Sureeeeeeeeeeeee.

It's competing.

Most of us do not have 8800GT's in the world. You're spending at least $1000 on a PC that is capable of beating Playstation 3 in graphics.

the way i see it is the consoles will get the cryengine months from now so the pc will have had for almost a year and not to mention they said it will run on high or nearly high i dont think that includes very high or even direct x10 so i agree with wuyanxu about the pc being ahead of the consoles always has been always will be.

Murlocke: QFT, that looks a lot better than PC, maybe because of size...

I really hate that this is coming to consoles though.

What 8800GT are we talking about here? Last time I checked my 8800GT can't run Crysis on High @ 60 FPS @ 720p/1080p
