Default Crysis coming to 360

According to 1UP.com podcast.

They've been right about everything else they disclosed in their podcast.

This is a Podcast from 1UP talking with the Crysis Developers

"Basically, Far Cry is to Far Cry Instincts
as Crysis is to the 360 version of Crysis. It will be based totally on
DX9, have a different storyline in the same universe, and will NOT be a
port of the PC version."

Around 21-22 min mark

I thought this was always known. Back when they first showed crysis they were talking about coding for 360 and PS3 dev kits.

Well, Crytek came out and said they had no plans to bring Crysis over to consoles, now this news comes out.

Seeing how they're asking for PS3 programmers, I'm sure it's also headed to PS3 as well.

Ah ok. I always thought that was a "no announced plans for 360/PS3" type of talk, but that it was always coming. I remember before they said that, they said they were working heavily with PS3/360 Dev kits (actually programming around the architecture of both systems instead of quick porting), just that nothing was set in stone.

I'll try to find that old quote.

/GameStar/dev: How does porting work from x86 to X360?

Cevat Yerli: In general the architecture is different of course, but they are quite a bit more similar then Xbox360 and PS3. The cpu's of PC, 360 and PS3 have only one similarity - multi-threading. As a generic cpu the Xbox 360 processor is the most powerful one, if you're taking the 7 Spu's of the PS3 into account things change. Before we had the PS3 devkits we thought PS3 and Xbox 360 were closer in design than PC and console. That's not the case though *laughs*

/GameStar/dev: So you are optimizing your engine for the cell spu's?

Cevat Yerli: Sure. We have to, because we want to utilize PS3's power in full. Accordingly the PS3 will get it's own engine architecture, kind of a sub-architecture of CryEngine 2.

/GameStar/dev: You outsourced the Far Cry Instincts port. Now you have to port yourselves?

Cevat Yerli: Umh ...

/GameStar/dev: ... the graphics interfaces are requiring an extra effort?

Cevat Yerli: Yeah, because of OpenGL ES for the PS3 we have to recode our whole rendering. If you look at it closely, CryEngine 2 will have 2 solutions for each system in total. If a developer abstracts that, the technology is optimized very specifically. Otherwise you cannot utilize the whole power. Alternatively you can abstract it in a way that it is not running on all system, then the strongest platform is losing out the most ...
Basically saying they were getting the engine running on 360/PS3 a long time ago (note the date, 06-Sep-2005).

I won't expect it to be any decent... the Xbox far crys blew pretty bad compared to the original.

I have the 360 version of Far Cry and still thought the older PC version looked better. While they did add improved effects in water with the waves the draw distance and open ended gameplay wasn't near what the PC version had.

Nevermind, Crytek came out today and said Crysis will not be on nextgen consoles in any way shape or form.

I'm guessing all that will happen is Ubisoft will take the engine and make some Crysis-ish game

I think that'll be FarCry 2.

Crytek isn't with Ubisoft anymore, it's EA now. Of course we all know their track record...
