Crytek is making it abundantly clear that they do take seriously the notion of bringing their mammoth shooter franchise over into the next generation hardware. After inventing the game that stumped all inferior video cards, Crysis, Crytek have made many comments on their feelings relating to support for Sony’s soon-to-be-announced PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s mysterious Xbox 720. Among these comments includes a superiority factor.
Crytek feels that no matter what, PC Gaming will always take the trump in capabilities simply due to the sheer power available in high-end investors. There is no telling just how good the next leap in gaming will be, but it is dependant as much on the games as it is the hardware. Developers will be challenged to once again go above and beyond what is thought to be possible in console gaming. A PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 can make or break Microsoft and Sony right now if not crafted from the soul of what makes the brand good.
Crysis 3 will release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 tomorrow, but don’t be surprised if it will also be on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 with revamped settings and performance, perhaps based on the PC version’s architecture. CryEngine 3 is certainly up to task to utilize high-end video game hardware, the question they remain to be doubtful of is whether or not Microsoft and Sony can impress them with hardware worth developing for.
Since Crysis 2, Crytek’s demands have been vocally public in how high of a specification they would hold future gaming consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Initial estimates were around 16 – 32 gigabytes of ram.
The final specifications for Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 have not yet been shared with the public.
