Hahaha. Do not expect a patch to significantly change the graphics. That never happens, and it won't start now. Crysis 2 is a fail. I had a sneaking suspicion something like this would happen from day one.

Crytek even confirmed in an interview at one point that features that worked on PC but could not be dynamically scaled down to work on consoles would simply not make it into the game. I knew it was downhill from that point forward.

As it stands, Crysis 1 looks noticeably better than Crysis 2. Heck, the trailer videos from Crysis 2 don't have amazing graphics, which was a very bad sign. Developers always put their best foot forward in the trailers.

Also, what does ROLF mean?
This is exactly what I thought as well, there were already two very popular threads on this, but I suppose we really shouldnt be surprised anymore, same thing happened with the sandy bridge recall

This^ all the way.

The way I look at it, we would be buying into an incomplete product, of which we would have to wait an X amount of time just to get what we really wanted from the beginning

It uses an ATI GPU (like themadhatterxxx said) which is closed to the X1950 pro in performance but with the unified shaders of the HD2000 series. The PS3 uses an Nvidia GPU.

I bought a X1950 Pro for my P4 system from eBay, should arrive in a few days. That, with a P4 Northwood 3.4Ghz will let me even play Crysis 2 on it. A fresh copy of the slightly better performing than Windows 7, Windows XP, and at 1280x720 I should get the same framerates as the Xbox 360.

With a P4 I doubt it, the 360 CPU is much better and of course the game is specifically optimized for the fixed hardware of the 360.
