    Meh waay to point the blame. Maybe they should have thought abt making the game work decently on current video hardwares rather than 5 years into the future then they would hav had more sales. :rolleyes:

    Quite alot ppl I know didn't get the game cos they know their PC won't handle it :p

    They should just release their games on Steam. I'm pretty sure Steam games have got to be the least pirated out there, and everyone likes centralised friends and achievements.

    Hopefully they'll keep PC as their primary platform though... I don't give a rats if its on console or not, as long as we dont get a lamo port with bad controls and terrible menus.

    Does this mean Crytek will make games but they will not be released on Computer platform?

    Then I won't buy it. FPS on console is lose. Guess that's one way to lose customers.. How does that work Crytek.

    They just mean the Crysis sequels after Warhead will all be released on console as well as PC. Cross-platform, as they say.

    reason i never got it was pathetic performance and honestly the game itself never thrilled me (mind that is based souly on the demo)

    so to say piracy is the main problem is a copout.

    lol i dont know why you dislike the idea of it being released on consloe becuase the wii and PS3 both have incredible processing power, it's on par with a super computer if you realy look at it.
    the game would be much better on a console and ppl wouldnt have to buy a whole new $2000 computer in order to run it if their current computer is too old

    Fair enough but computer will always be faster and have better graphics and FPS's on console are hard :(

    why do you say that?
    computers FPS depends on what else ur computers doing or if you are online all the different internet providers speeds etc.
    wheras FPS on a PS3 or the wii wil always be fine it only slows if you do something stupid like place 500 ines in 1 spot and then detonate...even then it often handles it...well enough especially considering a computer would crash

    Piracy was a major deal with the release of Crysis. It was released eariler on the net with an estimated 250,000 downloads before Crysis' relesae, now that's alot of money down the drain. Cross platform is better anyway, bigger community, and all the console nubs get a taste of the l33t graphics. :lol:

    Meh, who cares? They're yet to even make a decent game that's enjoyable to play.
