Crysis 3 Has “Maxed Out” Current Gen Consoles, Not Even 1% Left, Says Crytek

Crytek boss Cevat Yerli has said that Crysis 3 maxes out PS3 and Xbox 360 to the last drop of power, so much so that there’s not 1% of power left.

Speaking to Videogamer, Yerlie let loose:

Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles. There is absolutely not even 1 percent left,” he said. “No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out. Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically. I’m not talking about art style–art is subjective–but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox [360] and PlayStation [3], I’ve yet to see a game do that still today.

That’s why we said [two years ago] that Crysis 3 is next-gen ready already. We did that without knowing the specs but it’s not going to be much more than what we have done so far. And it turns out we were pretty much right.

Any day I will take a battle against Gears and Halo, whatever, the amount of data we put in and the detail level is far superior,” Yerli said. “With Crysis 3, we’re pushing that to another level, but the PC is just two levels beyond.

Crysis 3 will be released February 19th on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

What do you think about Yerli’s….. never mind.

    crytek can’t seem to keep their story straight because they said the same thing about crysis 2.

  • nick

    i have to disagree about crysis 2 being the best looking game on consoles.
    for its year yea, but there has been games since that look better.
    the witcher 2 looks WAY better than crysis 2, AND ITS A FREAKING OPEN WORLD GAME!!!!!!!!
    than you have halo 4, some of those space scenes, and especially the until dawn crashing……….
    jaw through floor, and saying hello to lucifer!
    also have to wonder how much its pushing PCs.
    i have to admit the alpha looked pretty dam impressive, but im still a bit worried this is going to be another glorified console port.

    He’s talking way too much rubbish. Just as he did with Crysis 2, which winding up sucking.

  • nick

    it dident end up sucking it was one of the best games released that year!
    will never understand why so many people hate crysis 2.
    as ive said a million times someone tries to bring something new into the industry, open up the levels, have vehicular combat, a decent story, they get shat upon.
    people just turn out the same war shooter over and over again and get praised to kingdom come.
