Crytek: Crysis 2 Performing "Slightly Better" On PS3
Although Crytek has admitted to difficulties in jamming their massive CryEngine 3 onto consoles, they have said the PlayStation 3 has done "slightly better" in receiving it.
This is in comparison to the Xbox 360 version of the game. As studio business development lead Carl Jones told PSM3, not only has the studio not encountered some of the problems other designers have had with Sony's machine, they've gotten "slightly more performance" out of the PS3. That being said, Jones added that Crysis 2 would become the best looking title available "on every platform" and thus far, those who have seen it are forced to agree. Said Jones to the magazine:
"We haven't found it more difficult to develop for PS3. We're lucky in the fact that we've come to the generation slightly later than other people - the ones who were trying to build the first technology and games were surprised at how different the PS3 was. We took our time and worked out the right way to approach it.
At the moment, we're getting slightly more performance from PS3 compared to 360. I'm very confident that products using CryEngine 3 are going to come out as the best looking, or at least in the top three, on every platform."
"Best looking" on the PS3 could be tough, what with titles like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain and God of War III already pushing the visual envelope this generation. But considering the power behind the CryEngine 3, we're certainly expecting a top 3 graphical performance from Crysis 2. Anything less would indeed be a disappointment...
