Crysis 2 is undoubtedly going to set a very high standard for visuals on every platform that it is due on. But according to Crytek’s business development boss Carl Jones, the PlayStation 3 version will perform better than it’s Xbox 360 counterpart.

Jones said that he was sure Crysis 2 will be the best looking game on every platform. He also said: “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.”

It will be interesting to see how the different versions pan out, particularly with Natal round the corner and the powerful Cell processor at work on the PS3. Stay tuned with for more news and updates.

    You guys do realise that the original plan was to not even have the rsx! That’s right folks, ps3 was just going to ship with the cell,

    but sony realised it was going to be a program nightmare, so at the last minute they asked nivida for a kick ass graphics card. So as time goes on the plan is for developers to gradually get off the rsx crutch, which is only there to help lazy or less knowledgeable developers, I personelly think if sony would have left it out completly it would have been a disaster, but this is to show you that the cell isn’t your basic CPU but more similiar to a GPU,( the ps3 is nothing more then a GPU in sli with a 3.2ghz PPE) (opinion) The ps3 not only trumps the other competition but it also rivals current PC hardware in some areas (Link provided) That’s pretty impressive for 4 year old tech dont you think? And again I’m not saying in anyway that ps3 is better then PC b/c thats just not true but show me a PC that cost $300 and can look as good as a ps3, you cant

  • It has serious problems when its not the lead platform. dont ask me why but I think it has something to do with the architecture of the ps3. Look it up, whenever the ps3 is the lead platform its alot easier to make a 360 port and both end up looking better.

  • Here we go again…comparing the performance of two 4-5 year old systems. One with slightly better performance on one particular game. Wow!

  • Ferretmyster

    Really if this generation just cares about graphics then thats not the whole reason of gaming, im pretty sure that the xbox gameplay will be even 2 ps3 and pc, but everyone knows that the ps3 will be superior due 2 the year and a half head start that it had from the 360, always think gameplay 1st then graphics 2nd.

    Actually yes, the crytek crew promotes Nvidia which is what the PS3 has, so it’s like exclusivity. Rather sad that it can only perform slightly better than the console which was released 1 year before the PS3. Just like comparing the iphone to the droid… old technology vs new. Eventhough droid does not perform much better than the iphone yet it does win on some departments just like the PS3 vs the 360 which is rather sad for having an extra year to upgrade. I’m more concerned about the hard core pc gamers, they get a dumb downed version of a game they have been waiting for years. Crysis was known for its graphics and physics, but many acclaim the new graphics seem very dumbed down. Which I have to agree.

  • DAMN!!! I just bought an Xbox slim one month ago and the even more FUCKED UP SHIT is I cant play online with halo reach it say’s that “One or more players do not have a hard drive which is required for this playlist,” FUCK MEEEEEEEE THIS IS BULLSHIT!!!! THAT BLOODY THANG COST ME $500 RIGHT OUT OF MY WALLET!!!!!

  • honestly xbox360 is a let down to me ive been through 4 of them all malfunctioning i sold the last broken one to cash converters signed that form to get my money and ran like hell b4 they could plug it in.
