Are we simply gauging gamers response for a smaller printing run?

I'll buy this game when it supports steam works no sooner no latter. Good job on turning your back on your biggest market Crytek. Crappy console ports FTW!

The reason no one bothered to Pirate it is because a crappy console port isn't worth the HDD space.  No thanks, Crytek.

It's not a console port -.-

The general rule of thumb is that if one doesn't want something leaked, they make sure that it doesn't happen.

Nice to see there is some honor in the Old Guard of gaming.

Yeah, that's a tremendous leap of faith saying that the reason something wasn't pirated is because PC gamers were too noble to steal it. Free is the price any gamer can pay, and when you're talking about a download-centered PC population, the idea that this didn't get downloaded because people wanted to do the right thing and wait til release to pay $60 for what could be a subpar game is pure nonsense.

Whatever the reason, people DIDN'T want it. That's the bottom line. Crytek wants to paint all PC gamers as saints for this, but the bottom line is their game was not even attractive enough to STEAL. Best of luck to you, Crytek.

More specifically, no one wanted to download a huge file of an uncompleted game. I agree with your first paragraph, though.

I've actually seen people on Steam playing the leaked beta. They actually added it to their Steam games list so everyone could see them playing Crysis 2. I talked to one of them and he said he stilled planned on buying a copy for the PS3 and PC. The idea that people would rather play an unpolished beta with no multiplayer than the final version just because it's free is absurd. I bet everyone who downloaded it just wanted to try it out since there isn't a demo for PC yet.

Having seen the leaked version, it wasn't anything to write home about.

 

It barely ran, you had to jump through hoops just getting it to work, exactly as would have been expected on something that early in development.

 

I'm not entirely sure what the fuss was about. I guess if you could wrangle it into working long anough you could spoil the game for everyone, maybe.

But can it run Crysis?

That makes no sense for this article.

I'm thinking a lot of people just assumed their computers couldn't run it, and didn't bother.

This is the best thing I've heard all day. PC gamers are the best people in the world, and PC games are the best games there are.
