Claims that Crysis 2 will be the best looking console title to date are running very high as many insiders who have seen the console version in action have been blown away by how well the game is looking.
According to CVG, which has seen Crysis 2 in action running on the Xbox 360 and sighting that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are identical, Crytek has admitted to be getting more mileage from your favorite PS3.
Crytek Business Development boss Carl Jones states;
“We haven’t found it more difficult to develop for PS3,”
“We’re lucky in the fact that we’ve come to the generation slightly later than other people – the ones who were trying to build the first technology and games were surprised at how different the PS3 was. We took our time and worked out the right way to approach it.”
“At the moment, we’re getting slightly more performance from PS3 compared to 360. I’m very confident that products using CryEngine 3 are going to come out as the best looking, or at least in the top three, on every platform.”
Once Crysis 2 launches later this year, if both versions look identical it will not matter which console gave Crytek more performance, however for this writer the real comparison is seeing just how well Crysis 2 will perform on the Xbox 360 in comparison to many of the available PS3 exclusives.
