If you want to give credit where credit is due, you gotta look no further than the fine folks at Crytek and how consistent they are when it comes to general disdain for the concept of gaming consoles. Crytek boss Cervat Yerli is once again at it by talking to the press about Crysis 3 as well as next-generation consoles and if you are a big console fan and think that PCs are overrated, you might want to cover your eyes or be prepared to be upset. He spoke with CVG about the upcoming release of Crysis 3 and is very proud of his team and just how incredible Crysis 3 looks on the current generation of consoles.
He is so proud and so sure that the game looks great that he is actually predicting that next-gen launch titles will not look any better than Crysis 3 looks on the current generation of consoles. It might sound like a bold statement to some, but the reality is that most launch-window games on consoles are developed with the predecessor in mind or just the unfamiliarity with the hardware leads to rather lackluster usage of the system’s abilities. So while Crytek are good at what they do, their predictions aren’t exactly earth-shattering.
