Also Far Cry sold over 3 million, thats cool
Sorry but maybe is in all plataforms , a mistake

Crysis is ahead of its time graphically .. but a blast to play even with a lower FPS. UT3 from what I have seen looks like a POS and nothing new

I only buy games on Steam now. It's just more convenient installing, updating and uninstalling them. I haven't bought a game in retail since summer of this year.

I even re bought STALKER on Steam and gave my retail as a gift. I still have the BioShock retail as well. I bought the retail Limited Edition around march on pre-order and then it shipped a few days before release, but only after it was announced on Steam. So I bought it on Steam and I'm glad I did. I don't have to worry about a revoke tool or problems patching or installation limits. There are still activation limits on Steam too, but deleting local content before formatting frees up an activation slot so it's very simple.

If Crysis gets released on Steam one day I might buy it. Until then...no thanks. I just don't do retail anymore. I'll download a demo and check it out, but it has to be really great to get me to buy it.

I agree. I'm glad that EA actually released a game that brings high-end hardware down to it's knees. That might be why it has sold greatly, but I could never be sure. I believe UT3 is going to look better on the PS3 than it does on the PC.

Oh I agree. The facts are... that theres prolly been more downloads of that game then actually have been sold. Sucks. But might explain some sales numbers.

EA was extremely retarted that they haven't used a copyprotection system like Bioshock had and didn't have proper security at the DVD manufacturer sites. Bioshock was uncracked for 13 days after release, Crysis was on torrents like 6 days before release and that can have a huge impact on sales.

HAHAH I gotta dig up the post of you Cryfanatics stating that the game would sell millions...

This is the exact reason more developers are jumping over to consoles.... PC Game sales SUCK in comparison to console/multiplatform development, especially considering how much money they invested in the development.

Epic will benefit from making UT3 multiplatform... Too bad Crytek wont.

What "antal" and omsattning mean?

Magnus this game will sell milions for sure. And maybe you don't know but WoW is biggest cash-making game ever and there is any game on next gens that can compare to WoW sell So stop fighting for consoles and go play.

Yup. Like it or not DVD protection works and Crysis lost many sales because of it.
