excactly, i have over 20 or more games in my back catalog that i still want to finish.

I'm very interested in it if it comes out on PC

Crytek has researched console technology even before first Crysis was out. They have copied this ****ty Halo gameplay, which i don't like, for a reason.

Yes principles

If we launch a game that is on 360 and PC simultaneously, we basically shoot ourselves in the foot by allowing the German market to choose to play the PC version – because they are more likely to buy that than spend their money on the Xbox 360. (…) If we launched a Halo game on PC and 360 in Germany simultaneously, 80 per cent of sales would be on the PC.
Why would i support this!

That was a Microsoft quote, not a Crytek one. I don't get your point.
