[Joystiq] Crysis 2 vs. Crysis 2: PC and Xbox visuals compared

Being the sequel to the game that famously brought even the most powerful PC gaming rigs to their knees, you'd expect Crysis 2 to be, how should we say, significantly streamlined for its release on Xbox 360 and PS3. Aw heck, we'll just say it -- how could the console versions even hold a candle to the PC? As evidenced by the video after the break, the 360 does a fine job of keeping up, at least in multiplayer.

In the split-screen footage, it's clear that the PC version sports higher-resolution textures, some higher-detail models and different (one might say improved) lighting. Other than that, though, the two appear fairly close to the untrained eye. Of course, this is multiplayer, so both versions are less fancy in order to keep the framerate up, but this should at least make for some good anecdotal evidence for console players afraid they're missing out big-time by not having a $3,000 PC.

Finally, some hope for PC users.

EDIT: Sorry if repost or the format is mangled.

Textures look higher quality and sharper on the PC. Colors and lighting also look better. (I am viewing this off of on an IPS monitor so the image quality should be consistent all over the screen.)

The heck was wrong with these people? Why didn't they do a top/bottom instead of side by side?

Widescreen anyone?

Exactly what I was thinking. It's always $3000-$5000 PCs. Not sure where these people are shopping at, but you don't even need to spend 1/4 of that for a PC that will run anything.

I know right. I'm seriously tired of hearing this, it's every console fanboys excuse. A $1000 PC would get the ability to max out every game (including original Crysis) on a decent, widescreen monitor; $3000 will get you the ultimate gaming experience + enough hardware power to do pretty much anything for the next 3+ years.

Anyways, I'm glad the PC version is graphically superior. It means the demo wasn't just a direct port, but rather an enhanced port. This supports the theory that the final game will be as tweakable as original Crysis was.

Built my PC for less than $1000 and I'll be able to max out any game for the next couple years. I keep trying to convert people over to PC gaming and they're always like "Man, I don't wanna spend a couple thousand on a PC". I tell them I can build them a computer that will be a decent gaming machine for less than $700 and they look at me like I'm about to do a magic trick.
