The net's been alight with criticism aimed at Crytek over the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2

While nobody seems to be all that satisfied with the XBOX 360 version, apparently the PlayStation 3 version is worse. But Crytek's Nathan Camarillo insisted that is not the case on the PlayStation Blog. "I've gone on the record saying that if you stick PS3 and 360 side by side I would challenge..

Crytek's finally broken the silence on the PlayStation 3 version of Crysis 2, releasing a new gameplay trailer running on Sony's platform

Crytek "Considered" Making A PlayStation 3 Exclusive

The boss of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, has revealed in an interview that his company has "considered" making a PlayStation 3 exclusive in the past

But don't think because Cevat is speaking in the past-tense, that the idea is totally ruled out. The boss reckons a little something could well be on the cards — but first their first priority is Crysis 2 and XBOX 360 exclusive Codename: Kingdoms. “Sony is..

CryEngine 3 Licensed For PlayStation 3 Arena Shooter, Nexuiz

You know Crytek's new engine majig, CryEngine 3, that's running the particularly pretty Crysis 2? Well, there's hope that the pretty little video game tech will end up replacing the current off-the-shelf standard, the Unreal Engine

At least, there's hope from our corner, because we think Epic's engine looks like smeared turds up the bathroom wall. First signs of the tearful tech taking over —..

First Crysis 2 Gameplay Jumps Out From Under The Bed

There are guns and fancy visual effects, therefore it must be Crysis 2, right? Here's your first look at Crytek's long-hyped first-person shooter which is looking

.. alright. Perhaps this is a bad selection of footage, but it all looks like rather average run-of-the-mill console shooter stuff to us, with the exception of a few standout moments (like where that building collapses, that's..

Crysis 2 Screens Look As Pretty As Katy Perry In A Wet T-Shirt Competition

Crytek's been hyping Crysis 2 for a while now

They claim that they're going to set the graphical benchmark of all three consoles the game's due to release on. From the Playstation 3's perspective - it's some challenge to take on Sony's own in-house studios. But man - these screens do look pretty. We're assuming they're running on a super-powerful PC rig, but if Crytek can get the visuals anywhere..

Crysis 2 Squeezing More Juice Out Of The Playstation 3, Performs Better Than On XBOX 360

Hats-off to Crytek

Rather than going for platform-parity (and essentially gimping everyone), they are trying to squeeze every inch of performance out of each of the three platforms their upcoming shooter Crysis 2 is to be released on. And that means the company has admitted that they are getting "slightly more performance" out of the Playstation 3 version of the game. "We haven't..

The original Crysis is largely considered the best looking PC video game of all time

GDC 10: Crytek Show Off CryEngine 3 For The First Time

Finally - we might be staring at the end of the Unreal Engine

Let it be known - here at PushSquare we hate the Unreal Engine. It's such a bummer when a new game drops in the office and that familiar "U" pops-up the moment we push the disc into our system. The problem is: all Unreal Engine games look the same. Shiny, fuzzy, no personality whatsoever. We dare say the natural progression to..
