After Epic showed off its next-gen look at Unreal Engine 3 tech at GDC last week, Crytek hit back with a look at the latest iteration of CryEngine 3. It’s pretty amazing stuff, truth be told. Watch the video below, via RPS. GT also has an interview with Crytek’s Sean Tracey about the tech: that’s down there too.

    Haha… I like how he is saying: we set the bar for PC and we want to bring that visual bar on to the consoles and multiplatform.

    When even PC version of Crysis 2 looks worse then the PC version of Crysis 1 by 3 times.

    Console version is turd of 2005 material.

    I played the PC beta and the multiplayer of Crysis 2 with settings maxed and I was really impressed.

    I’m probably going to buy two versions cause I’m a graphics whore and have to have the best (PC), plus I wanna play online with my PS3 freinds and get the trophies.

    I was right on crysis being dumb down all my fears are true then. This more proof that console hold back pc gaming and human progress!!!!

    This more proof Microsoft and Sony is the worse thing to happen to gaming. Console hold back the power of pc gaming.

    @Crysis, maybe he is melodramatic and should to grow up he is speaking truth here.

    Crysis 2 PC version looks worse then Crysis 1 version because of …
    Even with all AA, filters and blah-blah-blah.

    No one can really afford to develop AAA titles exclusively on the PC, get the hell over it.

    Why? Its been proven to be cheaper to develop for the PC than the 360 and even cheaper than the PS3? Unless, of course, you bring in the ‘Piracy’ joker, of which we all know that Piracy really doesn’t affect sales as much as those in the industry will have you believe.

    Doesn’t always bring in enough revenue on PC & piracy is a large factor, you would be ignorant to deny that.

    “Crysis 2 PC version looks worse then Crysis 1 version”

    Sorry Erth, but I’ll definitley disagree on that statement.

    Did anyone notice the “MMO” that the guy in the GT vid was talking about? The one he said he can’t talk about??? Anyone reckon that it could be the Kingdoms title, the XBOX 360 exclusive???

    Lying or not, piracy is still pretty big, but it’s more about market share… a tripple A game costs 50 million to make (that’s a cheap one by the way), with that kind of cost you cannot afford to shut out 2 3rds of the market.
