Crysis 2 Does New York, New York With A Modern Spin

"Start spreading the news

I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it - New York, New York," are the lyrics that would be present in this Crysis 2 launch trailer if Crytek hadn't gone for some dodgy street remix majig. Don't get us wrong, we like some urban beats. Not keen on this tune though. But that doesn't matter because it's Crysis 2! Hide behind your desks folks. Stay in your house. The..

Crytek Promises Crysis 2 Parity Between PlayStation 3 And XBOX 360

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..

PlayStation 3 Owners "Can Probably Hope For" A Crysis 2 Demo

Considering Crysis 2 is a multiplatform game, Crytek's been mighty silent about the shooter on PlayStation 3

While both PC and XBOX 360 gamers have had access to a demo of the sci-fi shooter for a while, PlayStation 3 hasn't gotten so much as a sniff. But executive producer, Nathan Camarillo, told PSU that we "can probably hope for a demo". Would certainly be a good way of getting people..

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 —..

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..
