Pretty much agree with this, I am not interested in this game anymore. I MAY pick it up if it's on steam sale for cheap or at target in the bargain bin for a quick game to play on a week end.

Just so you guys don't leave me out of the party. Lets see what it costs to Max Crysis 2.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103926

Total : $350 plus software.

Only $50 more than the 360 Slim.

Though to be fair, the 360 includes software.

Both look great. Obviouslys the PC looks better, but suprising not to the scale at which you would think. I like how Crysis 2 has put a lot of work in CPU design. In some regards, it felts as if the 360 has a more natural lighting system for indoors which was not as sharp but better use of the colour overlays. I'm sure a few monitor tweaks would fix that.

Nope. You can easily pull this off with slied 8800GTs. Heck, even a GTS450 would run this on max settings NP. You're looking at a build between 800-1200 to max Crysis 2. You could even play with less. Lower settings still look good, as seen with this video.

$800 is overkill to max any game.

Pretty obvious the PC will nearly always win on visuals. But for the hardware the consoles are rocking its impressive.

Once was PC all the way, now its my CAD / home theatre baby.
Xbox 360 for gaming, except from when HL2 EP3 / HL3 is released

I thought Joystiq are meant to be professional.
Oh my god you people are just ridiculous.
It was SARCASM. They were being FACETIOUS. They do it in almost every article they write somewhere somehow.

They were referring to Crysis 1. Around the time the first Crysis was being talked about and coming close to release, in order to play it maxed out it cost about $3k at the time.
Getting SLi 8800GTXs, which couldnt even play it maxed out completely, cost $1,000 alone.
It cost like another $500~ at the time to get a Dual Core as well, and depending on what motherboard it was similarly priced.
You were already at around $2k before you even had a case, PSU, and maybe RAM.

You all fail to realize how much technology and the market regarding prices has changed.
Stop spazzing out over something stupid, yet alone isn't even serious to begin with. Look at every article Joystiq has wrote out over the past two years. There some kind of wise crack or sarcastic tone somewhere in them. Don't take everything so damn seriously.

Crytek can do all they want with this game, I could care less. They're not getting a penny from me for this crap. They have ruined their name for a VERY long time with me.
While I don't particularly agree entirely, I certainly agree how everyone is getting caught up on some quote rather than the game itself like it was intended. SHEESH people.

Not at all. 800 dollars goes a long way for PC gaming. PC gaming in general lasts longer then consoles. I've played SC for at least 5 years, COH 3, CS since I was 10 years old. Since the PS2 and Socom II (1/2 years of play), I have not played a console game as long as a PC game.

No power supply? Or the price of the game and OS?
