Crysis on consoles was a big obvious, right? And it never happened, right? EA Partners group general manager David Demartini has told Gama console gamers had to wait for the second game thanks to Crytek’s “discipline”.

“Crytek has shown a tremendous amount of discipline, because the simple thing would’ve been to make… compromises and put it on PS3 and 360 before it was industry standard-setting,” said the exec.

“But as a company they have a reputation for not going to a platform just to exploit the platform, but they go to the platform when they have something that’s as good as anything in the industry, if not the best on that platform, so I think what consumers can look forward to is them setting a new bar against any game whatsoever on those platforms.”

Crysis 2 was announced as a cross-platform title at E3. Hit the link to see Cevat Yerli say PS3’s “difficult to program”.
