Crysis 2 being made great for the pc? You don't need a super computer to play it? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Well, you gotta realize they are making Crysis 2 for consoles as well, so I'm sure somewhere in the code it is able to run on $hitty pc's just as well and also be able to look super badass on top of the line super computers. Hack the Gibson ftw!

You'll recall that the minimum requirements for Crysis 1 were a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 and a Radeon 9800 256MB. That wasn't exactly hot hardware back in 2007. It's not like the minimum requirements were a 8800GTX and Core 2 Duo, that was just recommended. It makes sense that minimum requirements for Crysis 2 would be low. A 9800GTX won't be the minimum requirement for anything for a looooong time to come.

Pahahaha even though it says, "Carl also mentioned that the game will come with better graphics even on PC despite the lowered system requirements", they probably done this so they can work on consoles too so as well as no longer being an exclusive, we have to look bad so consoles don't feel bad

Seriously though, I'm unhappy that it won't look better than Crysis because that is what most people expect.

CryEngine 3 development engine for the Crysis 2 ensures that the game looks similar irrespective the platform it is being played on whether it is PC or a thorough gaming console.
I think that sums it up right there. Some people might pose the argument that it'll still look better than crysis because it was just optimized much better. Even if it does look better, there is no possible way it could fully utilize the power of modern graphics cards if it looks the same as consoles. Many people grossly overestimate the horsepower of a console.

No. The top quote quite clearly states the game looks similar irrespective of the platform. This is marketing speak for "The PC version will look a lot better". They are not going to talk down the console versions since these will make Crytek the most money.

Have you guys seen the Gametrailers TV episode thats full of gameplay footage? The game looks incredible, it may not surpass Crysis 1 with mods but its still on par with vanilla Crysis, I just hope the PC version doesnt get the low res console textures.

Here's the episode btw.

That episode is played through console. Hopefully the PC will max out looking much better...if it isn't give it about 6 months and people will come out with some killer graphic mods and it will run faster and look 3x better.

I don't really like the look of some parts of that video but hey like I said...its from console. More specifically the column destruction is terrible.
