Crysis Lands On PSN/XBLA In October

Crysis 2 was excellent but prior to that release, everyone was wondering if console gamers would ever see the original.

After the sequel launched, we sorta lost hope. But surprise! On GTTV, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli acknowledged the long-standing request and announced that Crysis would arrive in downloadable form on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade next month. Technically a "remastered" version, this new iteration of Crysis will boast new lighting effects and new Nanosuit skills.

No price or exact date just yet, but it's enough to know the game is coming. If you enjoyed Crysis 2 on your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you'll probably want to check out the first title; it's plenty fun and of course, it looks great (yes, even on a console). Now, of course, we're interested to hear about Crysis 3...although we assume we'll have to wait a while.

$15 for maps vs $20 for a huge, expansive game?

You made the right move. =P

I agree crysis 1 is supposed to even b better than 2. Plus its a whole game. Crysis makes black ops look like a 5 pixel side scroller. This sounds like a great psn download.

LOL...okay you enjoy your overpriced map pack. I love how it's become normal this generation to buy a game for $60 and within a year spend another $60 for a few additional maps.

Crysis still goes for $29.99 on Steam. How much will they charge on PSN/XBLA?

edit: $19.99.

Maybe it will be discounted for PSN+? The price is still too high for an old game.

Converted to my currency $19.99 looks like a good deal for a remastered version of a full retail game.
What's the typical price for a regular PSN game in USD?

I really loved crysis 2. one of the best shooters i've played in a while. That being said, i'd love to play crysis but next month bf3 comes out. plus i'm getting fifa so i'll have to pass. there are so many other games coming out in october too. i definitely won't be able to get this even if its $15-$20.

Now I seem to remember a statement from these yodels that this game was "impossible" on the current consoles.

hmm, so that now officially translates to, impossible with the kind of effort we were willing to invest.

Anyway, I've played Warhead. It was good stuff.
The super openness of the island maps makes for a great play.
I'm somewhat surprised that they weren't confident enough in a boxed retail release. Oh well, I think even $40 new for this would still be a very worthwhile investment, supposing that the port comes over all intact.

Actually they said it was impossible to port it to consoles using their current engine with the same quality done on PC. So basically now in 2011 they've decided to give console gamers a watered down version of Crysis which IMO is still better than not having it at all.

Hmmm, well, I read into that '07 interview. I suppose I could agree with you even if you didn't state it verbatim. Though, dont be too down on it. it's not entirely watered down. They stated it has been improved in ways. See Ben's comment:
"Technically a "remastered" version, this new iteration of Crysis will boast new lighting effects and new Nanosuit skills."
I hope the nano suits are more like Crysis 2 in upgrades.

stop putting words into there mouth, they said it would be impossible to bring crysis to consoles the way it is, not thats its impossible totally.
cervats always said we could but we would have to change allot of things which is what they have done.

Huh? I was fortunate to enjoy this game in all its glory back in 2007. I have no problem with a PC game being ported to consoles. I'm glad my friends with consoles are now able to enjoy the same game I did a few years ago.

A heads up, lately you've been acting like a jerk...ease up.

If this is cheap you can probably count me in. I really like the lush open world jungle theme. Crysis 2 was nice, but as good as I thought it would be.

I might get it or just share it from my brother. The original crysis wasn't any good at all. Besides having amazing graphics the game was very meh. I've had it on my pc for awhile. Played it on my pc, beat it and never touched it ever again.

I won't count it out. If they're to release the first Crysis, the expansion Warhead will probably be right around the corner. I think judging as to how it does online they release a bundled Maximum Edition pack, or something like it in retail.

Easily my favorite PC game - just really annoyed its coming as a download only - even for $20 I don't think I'll bother - I'd pay double that for a PS3 version if it was on a disc - especially if it included the Warhead expansion

I personally think that Crysis 2 is the most overrated game this year, it was terrible to me personally. I played the original Crysis on my spoiled friend's PC back when it came out and I loved it. If any of you actually liked Crysis 2 then you will think that the first Crysis is the best game ever, it's great. My only complaint is this PSN nonsense, downloading full retail games is a waste of harddrive space and takes way too long.
