Rumor: Original Crysis Losing PC Exclusivity, Headed To Xbox 360

I would be curious to see exactly how they port this over. CryEngine 3 certainly optimized Crysis 2 to work quite well on consoles while still being a very good looking game. It will never be as good as the PC version of the game, we all know that. I would think Crytek would recreate Crysis via CryEngine 3. I don’t think the Xbox could handle Crysis even at 720p, with just medium/high settings. The low settings just look bad by today’s standards. But it would be interesting to see what corners could be cut without sacrificing too much to make it playable on the Xbox.

The Pirates are not to blame. These guys just got money hungry. Anyways, I do not think it is going to sell well on the consoles since it will be stripped down terribly. The game looks best with the settings cranked up on high. I have just given up hope on Crytech!

It'll be funny when they look at all of the pc screenshots and then get there mindblown by the steaming pile that they see on the tv screen

I don't really see how this is a loss to the PC really. A lot of the consol players had to play a game with almost no backstory because the never played the origonal in the first place.

Didn't they already say that they weren't doing any more exclusive's for pc anymore? I think they kinda already burned the pc platform with the 1st Crysis and it's requirements. I don't really care if it's PC only or not.

Anything that meets the minimum requirements (and sometimes even what doesn't, barring a full incompatibility) can run a game; the question is how well. I just have a hard time imagining how they plan on getting it to run a decent frame rate on that console. Maybe knock it down to DX9 and reduce the draw distance to zero?

I don't think it's pirates, or anything like that, just the ablity to extend the revenue stream on the game.

As for the timing, it's possible they wanted to see the long term console sales numbers of C2 before moving forward. Then of course MS has to say "sure come on down" since everything has to go threw them (I think). Quite likely it wouldn't be a full priced title, might even be a points dowload, but that would be a pretty big download if it was. I wouldn't be surprised if a retail version even combined the expansion for this release.

 

One of the reasons I don't have a Xbox360 is due to the easy porting bettween it and the PC. The only things stopping the porting of any of the games from one to the other is MS wanting to have an exclusive on a title, or there just not being a preceived audiance for a PC version.
