Would be nice..seeing that it seems to have been pushed to 2007 release :(..atleast a small demo would be nice -.-...

Will you guys think Crysis will have a demo?

I'm sure there will be. Maybe even a Beta. If you guys remember, FarCry had a Beta... I was in it :D I even submitted a few bugs.

If you know something we don't, please let us know ;) I for one would love to get my hands on a beta for crysis. I just can't wait for this game to come out. Probably one of my most anticipated games ever. Too bad it got pushed back until 2007 :(

I think Crytek will release a demo a while before release, it worked well for them with far cry and if they have confidence that it's a good solid game then bring it on :D

Considering how everyone is dying to play this game, I actually think it a beta will be leaked.

Lets start..predicting how big the Demo will be..

i say..1GB...+ EA = 4GB for DEMO...maybe a Demo patch of about 5GB after.

Well at least in that case there'd be slightly more justification for it taking 30 minutes to patch unlike the nify bf2 "patches". :D

I honesty doubt there will be a demo this time around. Think about it. FarCry was great we all know it was great. We all know Crysis will be beyond great. They've already sold the game, why spend the time on a demo. They would obviously have to limit it to DX9 so it wouldn't show off the true power. We're all going to buy the game but you never know, some of the biggest most well known games have come out with demos. I for one hope they do, I really really really really really really really hope they do.

:rofl Beta patch 0.123456789 :rofl I hope not.
I remember some of the issues FarCry had. Hopefully Crisis will be less patched. Crytek is working very VERY closely with Microsoft on this one, since it's a Vista launch title. I would expect it to be near perfect.

But what about the specs fellas.

Is SLI going to cut it at 1600x1200 and above?

What sort of beast is going to be needed to run Crysis?

I wonder how much worse it will look/run on a DX9 card.

Not much from what we've seen so far. The only difference I'm aware of is the smoke reacting to the big thing's (I forget what they're called:)) scream in one of the videos. After all, the amazing stuff we've seen so far has been DX9.

Yea, DX10 should allow for more trees, rocks, etc. and different looking ones at that. I dunno if it will increase the actual complexity of the objects...

I think its more like increasing the number of objects per scene (more trees , rocks , particles , wood ..etc) cuz thats what DX10 is supposed to do actually ... "removing the overhead".
could be some other things aswell .. i think i read somewhere improved softshadows & smoke rendering/effects or something like that ..
