You Won’t Need To Break The Bank To Play Crysis 2 In Highest Quality

by Ernice Gilbert on March 8th, 2010, under Crytek, EA

The first Crysis title came out as a PC exclusive, since then it’s been known as the best looking game on any platform. However the sequel to the much celebrated PC shooter now has two new homes: the PS3 and Xbox 360.

From what we’ve seen the game looks beautiful on consoles, starting a vigorous debate on whether the game has been compromised to meet the requirements gaming consoles demand. Not so says PC Gamer Magazine. The mag had an exclusive look at the game and expounded on six aspects of it, one of them being the game’s resolution and how the PC version will stand “glorious” above the consoles’.

“The skyscrapers of Manhattan will help console systems manage Crysis’ infamously detailed graphics (by reducing the required draw distance),” the mag wrote, “but PC gamers – and only PC gamers – will see Crysis 2 in the glorious high detail it’s capable of.”

And for those who think the game will cost PC gamers a fortune to get the best quality, thanks to “optimizations” you won’t have to break the bank.

“And thanks to optimizations made to improve performance, it’s unlikely that you’ll need a wallet – busting PC to see it.”

PC Gamer Magazine is available around the country now, go buy a copy; lots of juicy stuff in it.

    i sure hope the PC version has not been watered down just so it can work on the sub par consoles hardware.
    i did not spend 4K on my PC so i can put up with crappy ports, crysis is a example of what 2006 hardware can do so where is my example of what 2010 hardware can do?
    they have given themselves a high bar to meet, and theres stiff competition in uncharted 2 and GOW3.
    now crysis 2 better come out and blow both of those titles out of the water otherwise crytek are going to have a very angry mob outside their door.
    o,n, just a FYI crytek are not doing the console versions there only doing the PC version.
    crytek UK formerly known as free radical the guys who did timesplitters series are doing the console version.

    yeah i know and to make things worse ive never really been able to max it out because there is no title that requires that power.
    ive saved up for a long time though the PC i had before that was a old Pentium 4 so i could afford it.
    the way i see it spend big cash now and you wont need to spend a cent for a long time, go for middle range stuff and you will need to upgrade in a few months time.
    think thats allot though my ex boss just finished building his PC which cost him 8K.
    I7 960, liquid nitrogen cooling system, dual DX11 ATI cards, 8GB DDR3 ram and such.
    only wish i had the cash for that ;)
