This game, like Farcry will go nowhere because the majority of people aren't stupid enough to fork out an unrealistic amount of money for a video card to run this game the 'way it was intended' and I'm not wasting good money to buy a game I have to turn everything off. Crytek is a dumb ass company anyhow. They want to make a next gen game and 2 times now they think people will run out and buy latest hardware just to run it. They want a game to last, yeah, lets look at that HUGE community they got with Farcry... lmao. HL1 was a major achievement and in some way HL2 is as well and will be around a long time. I sincerely doubt anyone will care about this game a year after its release. I can play 99.9% of everything I am interested in, Crysis like Farcry can wait. And that's if I don't totally switch to my Xbox 360.
Far Cry sold something like 750,000 copies in the 1st month... at $40/copy thats $30,000,000... if that's going nowhere, I sure would love to be the guys behind Crysis as it will surely go nowhere even faster.
