[EG DFB] The Making of Crysis 2 - Page 17

post #161 of 168
Eh who cares. Judging by today's $140 for 16 GB shell shocker, three years from now you could likely shove 32-64GB into your rig without that much effort, and 8GB will be minuscule.

Why are they complaining about the platform they explicitly chose to migrate to?

Because it's now down to developers to utilize the crazy-fast PCs most people here have, and they're complaining about not being able to due to consoles and vast majority of new games being console ports on PC.

And it'll take a lot longer than that before 64GB kits are available. Not because of RAM technology not developing fast enough, but due to people's slow as hell transition to 64-bit operating systems, which gives memory manufacturers a good excuse to keep all their current memory at high prices.

My budget computer from 2004 came with 256Mb...The average mid-range one would come with 1GB or above easily, MS wanted 256Mb but devs demanded 512MB.

Honestly right now 8GB may seem a lot, but remember every year ram gets cheaper. Back in 05/06, 4GB, heck even 2GB was expensive. Nowadays you can get 8GB for $75 ( NewEgg has done SO many of these sales )

Also, since the new consoles will probably be released in 2014/2015, I expect 8gb to be the MINIMUM. CPU and GPU will likely be integrated much like the current Fusion chips which the next xbox will likelyy use since ATi should be designing the chip.

judging from that progression we should have had a 3rd gen XBox with 4GB of ram in Nov of 2009, its already 2011 and no new XBox in sight for at least a year or two. I don't see how asking for 8GB is in any way unreasonable all things considered
But looks how fast gaming was advancing at that point compared to now? The kinds of things that can be done on limited hardware is hugely impressive. An xbox 360 or ps3 will not dazzle you with their specs, but the amount of travel they get out of those specs kicks is far more than a PC. Gaming consoles are dedicated to gaming. Developers build the games for those specific hardware specs and are able to push out so much more from them than on a normal PC. That's why we have abominations such as directx and opengl. Games can't be developed for hundreds of thousands of different hardware combinations so they use a compatibility layer and seriously cut the possibilities of their game down, simply because it would be a monstrous waste of time to cater to every possible video card/ram/cpu combination.

My point in that rant is that a console won't need 8 gigs of ram haha. PC's barely need 8 gigs of ram as is. So why bother driving up the price by speccing a console far beyond its needs?

i didnt realize you needed a big article...heres my rewrite
step 1- ****tier graphics
step 2 - ****tier nanosuit function
step 3 - slightly better gameplay at the expense of storyline
step 4 - no sandbox nor dx 11
step 5 - release game
step 6 - laugh at all the suckers who bought it
step 7 - work on crysis Warhead 2, a game slightly worse looking yet unnoticably more optimized with a bad side story from crysis 2
