Next-Gen Consoles "Too Weak" for Crysis

Next-Gen Consoles “Too Weak” for Crysis

Published On August 28, 2006 | By Console Monster | News

From the moment that Crytek revealed their stunning new PC game, people have been asking, “How long before we see Crysis on the next-generation consoles?” Well it seems the chances of Crysis appearing on the Xbox 360 have taken a blow. Speaking at last week’s Leipzig Game Convention, Crytek’s senior game designer Bernd Diemer had this to say
“…next generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 do not offer the sufficient power” to play Crysis at the quality Crytek demand.

Although Crysis can be played with both DirectX 9 (which the Xbox 360 can support) and DirectX 10 (which the 360 cannot support), Crytek say that only DX10 allows the game to be played to the sufficient quality.

Crytek have reiterated on many occasions that Crysis is only in development for Windows. However, this news is sure not to put so much as a dent in many people’s belief that Crysis will appear on the Xbox 360 at some point in the future.
