Crytek On Crysis 3: "No Game Will Look Better Technically"
Gee, where have we heard these claims before? Oh right, the last time Crytek put out a Crysis on consoles.
There's no doubt that the upcoming Crysis 3 will be one of the best looking games of the generation. But once again, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is boating that it has maxed out both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, to the point where there isn't "even 1% left." He went so far as to say that no game could ever be "technically better" than Crysis 3 on consoles, as he told VideoGamer:
"Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles. There is absolutely not even 1% left. No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out. Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically. I'm not talking about art style – art is subjective – but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox  and PlayStation , I've yet to see a game do that still today."
He added that he will take a battle against Gears and Halo any day, saying that the amount of detail they put into Crysis is just "far superior." You know, I like how he just sort of dismisses the art style as not being part of the overall graphical presentation. There's a reason many believe the Uncharted titles look better than Crysis 2...and based on his comments, one also gets the feeling that Yerli doesn't really play PS3 games.
I'm a big fan of confidence and even of boasting, especially if you can talk the talk and walk the walk. But personally, I'm getting a little tired of Crytek's hot air; first they said Crysis 2 maxed out consoles and now they're saying the same of Crysis 3. Unless both games are basically the same, that means you were lying the last time, right guys?
