Does this mean crysis 2 will be consolized?
 
Halfway down in this article it says:
Quote:

The same engine that powered the visually-impressive Crysis, CryENGINE 2 was originally purported to be simply too powerful to be handled by the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Details about the engine modifications made to accommodate the new platforms, if any, have yet to be announced. In addition, it appears that Crytek Studios is on the lookout for new employees interested in working on PlayStation 3 internal development, but little else is known.

does this mean it's going to be somewhat consolized? or be less powerful to accomadate inadequate consoles?

There's no need to dumb the engine down, just the settings of it.

Translated with babelfish, to late to translate it myself, just did some small improvements myself (0:52am already here):


On the game Developers conference in San Francisco next month, Crytek will show a version of their crossplatform version of the engine.

The CryEngine 2, the engine used for Crysis at present, might be used to develop the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games on. A restricted group might see this on the GDC. IF we possibly will see a port of Crysis to the consoles are at present still unknown.

What Crytek still want show to the general public on the GDC are how well the optimised engine can twist on a pc. of $600

I don't see anything Crysis does that the XB360 or PS3 couldn't. They may have to trim the poly count and the texture res a little, but its not like theres any major graphical features PCs can do that consoles can't. It also plays a bit like a console game (note how the suit controls are accessed), and its a pretty simple game, not a deep sim or rpg that requires a complicated control system. It would be a stupid business decision not to port it.

Well they need a steady FPS aswell and high end pcs can barely run the game, yes, they can lower everything of course

It's mean that lame developers will start making crap for consoles.

Well they made some games for the consoles aswell with their first cryengine, not a big succes, but I don't think Crytek is gonna leave their path completely
