The key is that in order to make it look its best on console, then also provide a well optimized PC version, you need to spend more time catering to each platform's strength. The reason GTA4 got so much crap on PC was because it was built for consoles and not modified much for PC, which resulted in poorer performance than neccessary... the reverse would be true for Crysis, without significant time spent carering the engine to console architecture (which is exactly what they have done for Cryengine 3).
I'm glad you found it funny... yes, Crysis made a profit and was PC only. That doesn't mean 5 million more sales is something they don't want.
Man this IS pointless. Making game for years and optimising it to be looking good with good performance mean costs. This just do not calculate.
Haha 5mln? Man 5mln on consoles sold ony FPS games with trade mark of Halo and Call of Duty, Crysis is new title you can't compare it to Halo and Call of Duty.
