Crytek Tries To Explain State Of PS3 Demo For Crysis 2
Okay, we aren't about to attempt an interpretation. We'll let you guys try.
So it seems very clear that Crytek is hell-bent on not only promoting Crysis 2 but also proving that the PlayStation 3 version is not graphically inferior. Despite this, several sources - and gamers - are saying the multiplayer demo that just recently arrived on the PSN doesn't pass muster. One Crytek developer addressed this, but we're not entirely sure what he means.
In this recent interview, there are two sections that have generated plenty of discussion. Firstly, something about a previous demo on the 360:
"...it was due to the timing of the certification. We did a previous 360 demo, but there was some issues with it. This is actually a patch, effectively on the previous 360 demo."
As for the PS3 version, he talks about it being based on a code "prior to submission:"
"PS3 version was the version that was set up… effectively, the PS3 demo is based on the code just prior to submission. Whereas the 360 demo is based on the code that we’ve used for the first demo. So, it’s complicated and messy but essentially it’s all due to when things were entering certification."
Forgive us, but this sounds a bit like backtracking. We could be wrong. But we'll find out soon enough when Crysis 2 lands on our doorstep next week.
And by the way, check this out.
