Take it or not. That's life... and I'm amazed you're depending this on freaking demo or beta. You already know the release date on retail version, buy it or not. I'm tired of hearing your or anyone's crap on "OMG, it's EA fault! I'm canceling my pre-order!" When it has nothing to do with EA but Crytek. They make reasonable decision to delay it... do you REALLY think they're doing this on purpose to piss you or anyone off?

Did you even have a chance to play the beta? Well, I did (hell, I played a bit at E3 even if it's not polished but I find it damn fun) and it's not quite all about graphics. The gameplay is actually cool but I guess your mind is already made up that it's all about graphics. That's fine, at least one less person that would enjoy Crysis at its fullest.

Actually this looks like a little mistake since the demo is still on track - that's why we work so hard as well

I did play the beta, and enjoyed it. It is EA faults like its been said a million times everything they touch, consider it a pile of junk. It didn't use to always be like that. Anyone who played any NFL games will know what I am talking about, when EA became corporate whores.

I know that Far Cry was published as a Ubisoft game. I know that Crysis first came around it was being published by them, and then we started seeing EA on the videos... just kind of transitioned over... at least thats what I seem to remember...

That's coming out of your mouth and that doesn't mean it's true. I disagree with you on a lot of things about EA. Maybe you hate EA because you really don't have any idea what they're doing but just want to join the crowd on hating EA. Btw, you can't compare Crysis with NFL games... there's many NFL games while we get one Crysis, and both are entirely different genre so I'm going to ignore that. Hell, Crysis isn't even out yet! You and I only got a bit sample of Crysis but that doesn't give us a good reason that we played actual retail version because it's not.

Also you're missing few things... EA has done excellent with Command & Conquer 3 and they're still releasing patches for it. Also they're working on new expansion. Ok, hmm they have came up with excellent stakerboarding game, stake. It's one of best stakerboarding game in this generation. Hmm, now that they have bought BioWare and other developer... and those studios already clearifed that EA is not taking over in creative control but themselves. And more. Yet, people's STILL ranting about it like it's end of the world.

Light up and wait a bit more. Patient is a virtue.

going from a GTS to a GTX isn't going to make your games run much faster! maybe 5-10 on the low end, and 5-10 on the top end .. i'd seriously think about it

The gap between the GTS and GTX is generally speaking more then 10fps. Most definitely not 5. More like 15 atleast.

Anyway, yay for the false alarm!!!

it most definitly is

for a start the 768mb ram > 640mb and it actually makes a huge difference.

I would recommend anyone offloading their GTS now. Especially the 320mb. Even though they were cheap to start of with, I belive they are going to age exceptionally badly.

I'm gonna predict that most likely the SP demo will simply take place on the MP beta demo level with a few objectives. Am I right?

No, it's entirely different.
