Why would they need a lame reason? "Hey we're going mulitplatform so everyone can enjoy our games" Thats not hard is it?

Blaming EA is a cop out, plain and simple.

No one forced Crytek to sign with EA, and if Crytek didn't want to make console games they wouldn't have to...EA can't force them to make one.

Crytek finally woke up like many other developers before them and realized that they would have sold many, many more copies had the game been cross-platform. And as far as Crysis "exceeding expectations", well that makes you feel better right up to the point that you realize that five times as many people are downloading your game than paying for it.

There isn't a single developer worth talking about thats not putting at least some resources into console development these days, because with the cost to make games these days its the smart thing to do.

People are really lazy, so putting Crysis on steam might make it sell more just because there is an audience that would buy it then because they can't be assed to go to the store or get the Ea downloader. Believe me, those people exist.

All of them work. You don't get updates, so if there's a bug/glitch, you'll be playing with it.

HL2, EP1, EP2, TF2, Portal. All have been cracked and TF2 even has bunch of private servers.

Today is a good day!

This might mean that it will actually be playable on computers now since they'll have to do A LOT of optimization!

Wrong several games have got updates so its not a problem but it may take a bit longer as the groups in the scene do update packs. I have friends who like to show of that he never will buy a game and get everything including all games from Steam.

I know it sucks but it's the truth but hey Steam stops much of the pirates atleats the zero day piracy and thats a very good thing.

I love Steam as it have done wonder selling more Pc Games, even EPIC was shocked that they did sell so many copies as soon they got over there.

Plain and simple Steam rocks

Oh, well, isn't this just great? I just hope that they don't sacrifice the visual fidelity of their future titles to conform to console standards.

Whatever. I'm gettin' too damn old for games anyway, and as soon as PC gaming dies, so does my interest.
