I think Crysis 2 looks really good. In my eyes it has a good amount of quality. It looks way better on pc than on the console. I think to many people have an unrealistic goal of having certain companies only release games for high end pc's. Seriously, Do you think it is cost effective to sell games to only a small percentage of gamers? Lets say, it cost $30 million to develop a game that is 100% done and ready for market. Lets not even factor in marketing or distribution. Lets say they sell the game at retail for $49.99, Say the distributer sells to reailers at $35(probably less). How much of that goes to the developer huh? The publisher has to recoup the cost of marketing, distribution and overhead. Lets take simplistic view of this and say the developer gets 60% of that. so that means per unit the developer gets $21. To make back the money they spent on development not counting any taxes they have to pay or bonuses or anything they would have to sell 1,428,572 units. Lets say the game caters only to gamers with high performance computers and the game is a first person shooter and it only runs on Windows 7 64bit. Remember im sure the developers want to make money at this to. These numbers are not 100% accurate because well, i have never done a deal with a publisher, and i am sure all the info is in an NDC. But they are not unrealistic. And selling 1.5 million units is not exactly easy when you have such a small customer base. Now calculate how many people can play when you ease up the requirements, put it on a console, now the numbers are much higher. True adding in top quality textures and adding in high end features to a pc release would be possible, but why make your life harder? If you have nothing to prove other than the ability to make a fun game then there is no reason to spend time on that.
Flame Suite On!
This has nothing to do with the fact that they developed a totally different game that has nothing to do with Crysis other than having a "nanosuit".
And they did betray the pc community. The same community that made them. And so they DID shoot themselves in the foot .. it's not even that great of a console game either.
