Epic will benefit from making UT3 multiplatform... Too bad Crytek wont.
Maybe there WILL be a console Crysis, but better like how Farcry Instincts was better than FarCry PC.

Far Cry Instincts was HORRIBLE and it looked horrible.

Are you on some medication?

PS3 is 30fps or less, less world details, less textures, etc.

Well . Crytek is a German developer and in Germany and another countries of Europe , the PC sales SUCK in comparison with the sales of the aliance of the ultratecnology of Nintendo DS, PSP, Wii, PS2, PS3, and the unknown console of the red lights MS . But maybe in you country also the PC SUCK the first or second console , the PC has maybe more than 2500 millons of sales in soft +suscriptions and maybe 1600 or 1700 millons per year of sales only in software . But this not is new in Kotatu, Gizmodo o Xbox 1up, only the NPD estimation of sales .

Quote:
Video game specialty retailers like GameStop and EB Games still carry a selection of PC games, but stores like Blockbuster or Wherehouse Music don’t even bother and carry only games made for consoles, which dominate the industry with $6.1 billion in U.S. sales last year, more than six times that of PC game sales, according to NPD.

But online distribution is growing, cutting into traditional boxed sales while buoying the PC game segment.

Companies specializing in puzzle, word or card games for the PC have seen the benefits of online delivery for years. The graphics for such casual games are less complex, so they typically require smaller downloads.

“There’s no box. No CDs. And we sell 50,000 games a month that way,” said Alex St. John, chief executive of WildTangent Inc., among the first to enter the downloadable PC games market when it introduced such games in 2001 at $20 apiece.

And more about the real market of the PC in your country

About the jumps , the console developers also jump to the PC market , is the money , and PC developers today have a second console for the jump, the XBOX 360, with the pretty controler for the FPS .


But well , I know that Crysis not is innovative like COD4 , HL2 or Halo and the interesting part of the game is the graphics part . Maybe in the future , in the 360 the game looks and run like Uncharted or better, and some inteligent people take the innovative gameplay of COD4 and mod the boring gameplay of Crysis

CoD4 was innovative? When? I mean the game is decent, but nothing great, IMHO. I enjoyed Crysis much more, and I didn't like the 2nd half that much either. The game could have been so much more, but it's still way above CoD4 for me.

Well look at it this way, Crysis is basically part 1 of 3. So look forward to the future releases and (hopefully) future patching.

Basically when you think about Crysis all you think about is graphics because thats all what they really pushed more than anything. And thats the biggest problem because I think many want to play Crysis but being that they marketed it as graphics show piece more than thats how people want to play it and rather not play a lesser form of it by having to play it on low or even medium settings.

They should have tried to make it more scalable because its either very beautiful maxed out or downright ugly even at medium settings. But I think it will have legs. People are just waiting for there hardware to catch up to it. I will pick it up but not anytime soon as this is the only game that hammers my system and I wont upgrade just for it.
Crysis still looks great at medium settings.

Sure does. I'll actually take medium over high and above for the smooth frames. My system does OK on high, but it does struggle a bit, medium is less fuss and reduces tweaking mid game.

If it werent for the high hardware requirements for crysis i think it would sell way better, lots of people got probably scared off with the demo and its no suprise really and also i think console gaming is getting bigger and bigger and for pc its just not fun anymore you invest lots of money in building a decent rig and it cant handle the newest games.
