James Cameron Loves The 3D Tech Found In Crysis 2

Few studios are more confident about their project. We've seen a whole lot of positive talk from Crytek before...and we're assuming they can back it up.

Crysis 2 will boast stereoscopic 3D and last year, Crytek boss Cevat Yerli said he hoped gamers would associate Crysis 2 with 3D gaming. He's gone even further in more recent comments to Edge, saying the upcoming sequel would be a "super high-end 3D experience on all formats." Thing is, it seems the team is well versed in the new technology; they've been working with it for several years now. One previous project was "developed exclusively in stereoscopic 3D" and that happened over two years ago. Added Yerli:

"So we've done a lot of research into 3D experiences, the UI and whatnot. And a lot of this knowledge is now in the Crysis 2 3D experience. That's why we have, in my opinion, a benchmark 3D implementation.

I'll even claim it's the same as Avatar's status in 3D. James Cameron has seen Crysis 2, and he loved what he saw because his eyes are trained for 3D more than anyone else's, and that makes me confident that we have a super-high-end 3D experience on all formats."

Wow, we didn't know Cameron had gone eyes-on with the game. And if Crysis 2 is anything like "Avatar" in terms of impressive 3D visuals, it really could be a benchmark 3D experience for the gaming industry. On the other hand, we sort of have to see it before we believe it, and we know that Crytek and Yerli like to boast a bit.

There's no question that Crytek is a top notch software developer. It's too bad that they have a very bad habit of stepping on other people's toes. Because of that I really don't know what to expect from Crysis 2 in terms of sales. Especially with so many other great games coming in 2011.

Eh.. I can't entirely say they're top notch software developers... Yet. While the first crysis was indeed pretty, it was a massive resource hog. That's not exactly top notch. Obviously, I haven't touched crysis 2 and can't comment directly about it. All I can do is hope it's more efficient than its predecessor.

The 3d aspect is great and all, but I'm one of the average, un3d, consumers. While this may change the field of play for a few, the bulk of us want to hear great things about normal play and perhaps a bit more about what to expect Performance wise amd graphically for the ps3.

@ stay3r

Yes, it was an PC issue, but if they can't get the game to run properly on the PC, I wouldn't want to leap out and give them too much credit with the PS3. Given the nature and outcome of graphical achievements on the PS3, I just can't shake off history and play dumb about that tidbit. After S-E managed to ruin my favorite titles of all time, I'm too torn to just shrug off the fact that this game can, indeed, be very.. VERY blown out of proportion.

"Super high-end 3D experience on all formats" except the box of X due to lack of HDMI 1.4

except the 360 does have 3D support.
if you did your research you would know you dont need 1.4 HDMI for 3D.
the ps3 does not HDMI 1.4 and it works decently.
my PC and monitor dont use HDMI im using a DVI port and its giving me better 3D effects than anything on the ps3!
especially lost planet 2, take the best 3D game on the ps3, make it 5000 times better and your still not even close what LP2 can give you on a decent PC and monitor!
full HD too none of that sub HD BS we have to put up with on the ps3.

O.k, well My bad yeah HDMI 1.3, at what point did I criticise the PC version which will be the best version of the 3.

If you did your research you would know that while the 360 can output 3D it is unable to output 3D in HD which was my original point in my reference to the quote ffs!

Just to note I was gaming in 3D back in 2003 on my PC via a standard vga lead since you want to brag about your current setup.

Boast a BIT? Yeah I'd say. And so does Cameron. Anything to hype the tech that surrounded his dreadfully boring film.

Stop watching Avatar on your iphone, dammit! I loved that comment he made, although I'm not sure I'd he directly attacked the iphone or if he attacked anything smaller than 52"..

Haha.. Whatever it was he actually said it was awesome advertisement!

How are Cameron's eyes more trained for 3D. Just because he pioneered the newest wave of it in cinema doesn't mean jack to me.

Look, I love the confidence that Crytek has. It really gives me hope when thinking of the quality that they must have, but on the other hand, the constant boasts are really starting to grate me. Why can't they do like most devs: shut up and let the game speak for itself. By all means advertise, but don'y make it out to be the second coming. It will only disappoint. Want proof? It's a little game called Gran Turismo 5.
Peace.

Or perhaps in other words video games more often than not don't live up to the hype that sometimes gets built around them. With two of the possible exceptions being Mass Effect 2 and Uncharted 2.

I'm pretty sure these guys are convinced they are the best at what they do and that their game is better than any other game out there. I'm going to wait for the reviews on this one.

This isn't the PC exclusive world anymore Crytek!

How about we hear about the gameplay for Crysis 2, instead of hearing how the 3D kicks every other game's ass?

Hey idk about you guys but i'm pretty stoked for this game. There's plenty of gameplay footage out there just look it up. May not be the best game out there but i'm expecting good things out of it.

soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cant wait for this!
this, LA Noire, RAGE, human revolution or DNF will be getting GOTY this year!
buying a new 3D monitor has been the best decision i have ever made!
playing mafia 2, batman AA, lost planet 2, almost every PC game out there in 3D has been beautiful!
gives you much better effects than what gaming consoles do, and considering a 3D TV costs upwards of 3K where a 3D PC monitor can be had for 400 bucks a great deal too!
im glad i got a new TV because my old one had terrible picture quality, but as far as 3D is concerned its been nothing but a massive disappointment!
disappointed me so much i thought it was not working properly and had a friend of mine whos a TV technician come and check my TV to make sure everythings working fine.
was working perfectly, he told me hes not very happy with his LX900 either which is quite discussing considering it cost him 7 freaking grand!!!!!!!!!

That's why you should do your research and actually check these TV's out in person. That is what I did when I researching the Sony & Panasonic 3D Tv's. Now I can make an intelligent decision and not waste my money.

i did, its hard to gauge what there going to be like because the shops only had rainy with a chance of meatballs and monsters vs aliens to watch in 3D, they did not have any games, or any movies really made for 3D on display.
i really wanted to get a panasonic NEO plasma, but the smallest they make is a 50 inch which is too big for me.
plus plasmas have really bad burn in, i like to leave my games on pause while i go for lunch, dinner, coffee whatever.
if i was to do that it would wreck my tv, sure i could just switch it over to TV when im gone but knowing me ill forget and screw my tv up so its not worth the risk.

Well, it will be interesting to see what they do with Crysis technologically. It still has to be a good game... if it is not it doesn't matter what bells and whistles it has...

Q!
