i feel like a total idiot now.......and on top of that ea forwarded the release date of crysis from dec 2010 to mar 2011......if i would have known this i would have waited for sandy bridge or bulldozer......damn these ports....
Just because a game is on a console does not make it a "console port" as EVERYONE here complains about. If you read the multiple threads about multiple different games, most of the newer games coming out (Crysis 2, BF 3, etc) are being made for the PC market FIRST.
Making the "console port" what it actually means, a game that was originally on PC and the ported to consoles. Yes, I realize that this game is going to be a "PC port" (as it should be called, a game made for consoles that is on the PC is a PC port), but really people need to stop complaining about it.
It's all about the money, and of course, with the trends of today, companies are going to make way more money if they can extend there software to as many platforms as possible.
The era of true "PC Games" is over, and everyone needs to realize this, and stop complaining about "Bad Console Ports". I'm tired of hearing people say that the graphics are dumbed down because of consoles, because while it is true, it has been like this ever since the consoles have taken over. Get used to it....
And seriously, your complaining that the game uses DX9 (not the quoted, just in general). It looks great how it is. DX9 still has some power left in it's years, even though I admit it's close to dying.
