Much higher system requirements for smooth play. Crysis MP has a steeper learning curve. COD has much bigger built-in MP fan base already as well.

The problem is... Crysis MP sucks... too buggy.

cod 4 has more game modes, unlocks, better netcode and is probably just better packaged.

crysis has a 100 times better single player though.

I think Counter Strike 1.6 is probably still the most popular (not sure if that's true anymore). The most popular games are always the least demanding.

I think Cryis will be the Quake of this period in terms of moding. Back then only people with fancy "pentium" PC's could play Quake. I remember I couldn't play Quake on my 486

Right now the 8800GT is at a good price...a couple of years from now "low end" players will be playing Crysis mods.

Hard to play this game with med end computers, really need a high end system to enjoy the game, playing single player or multiplayer of this game..on a crap system is just...wrong :/..

CoD4 multiplayer big fan base, also is intresting. Crysis isen't bad either tbh..its just..hard to play it with a ****ty pc. CoD4 runs at flying speed on even crap pcs.

I think maybe what eva next crysis engine game comes out, with multiplayer..we can hope for that the hardware has caught up..(i love that ><..hardware catch up, cant wait), we can really enjoy it.

He means 30,000 for pc players alone though.
