[CVG]Crysis 2 sales dominated by Xbox 360 version - Page 9  

post #81 of 188
Game would have sold better if it had the following on launch day:

Full DX10/10.1/11 support, making use of the improvements in everything
Advanced graphics configuration w/ AA and AF settings
FOV slider in the menu somewhere
The ability to use classic suit functions (aka crysis 1 style)
The ability to rebind keys for all functions (specifically, pressing enter to reload after dying is a pain in the arse, mouse1 works better)
High resolution texture pack (like DA2?)
The ability to turn off the nanosuit voice in SP and MP
The ability to set score/time/kill limits in MP
The ability to host your own dedicated server
The ability to change toggle crouch and toggle aim settings in the same menu (very important!)
64-bit executable

Don't try to turn it around and say they would have sold better on PC if they did anything different because there's historical PROOF they wouldn't have.


No, there's just a very vocal minority in PC gaming that either cares more for the Dx version or the graphics than they do the gameplay or PC-fanboys that have that snobbish/elitist attitude

Plenty of people like it. Plenty more would if they'd stop listening to the hate around them. I didn't buy Crysis 1 until more than a year after it came out for the same reason some aren't buying Crysis 2 now.

100% correct sir. I've been fighting against the haters since almost a MONTH before this game came out. 9 times out of 10, they don't have ANYTHING constructive to say about the game. 9 times out of 10 they're just parroting what someone else said. On the few chances I'm able to even to get them to mention specifics about the game, it's extremely minor things that you'd have to take a screenshot and stare at to even notice.
agreed. it should go to show, even giving the pc community everything they "wanted" in a game, latest dx, high resolution textures, mediocre game play, etc, it was still heavily pirated...what was the excuse then? why spend $60 on a game that demanded to much from your system on max settings?

as the pc community, we should just own up to it, people pirate not cause of strong principles to send a message to the developers about making crappy games, they do it cause they can...has nothing to do with politics, prices, gameplay/graphics quality, etc...

as for the rest of the immature hate on crysis 2, its pretty clear especially on this site, if it is not released by valve or name battlefield, it wont ever be good...

I don't think it really matters since CryTek screwed the PC community over with their console-like approach to it.

It's the top seller in steam.
That probably means something.

If Crysis 2 is Crytek 'screwing' the PC community over by cheating with the hot Console pool boy, then Crysis 1 was Crytek dressing in hot lingerie and high heels, while serving your favorite meal and a beer/Cherry koolaid only for PC gamer hubby to tell her 'she looks like a fat whale' and to give her a black eye because the food was lukewarm.

Don't think the masses of pc gamers care that much about dx 11. A quick glance at the steam hardware survey would reveal most are on dx10 cards.

This news should be shocking to no one.

Piracy stats so far according to Demonoid...

PC ~ 8000
360 ~ 3000
PS3 ~ 1000


Obviously PC is first, since there are no barriers, but 3000 360 downloads is pretty significant too, considering the extra work needed to mod the console.

I don't think my first post's point made it through so I'll try it this way.

In other news Starbucks sells more coffee than Tacobell.

This is not news it's not even informative because most of the actual numbers are missing. It's viod of news.
