Some news slipped out during the Leipzig convention in Germany that Crytek senior game designer Bernd Diemer said their upcoming first-person shooter Crysis
was too über
for the next-generation consoles -- the 360 and PlayStation 3 specifically. The heart of the matter related directly to DirectX 10 and it being the only way to truly unleash the beast behind this beautiful game.
Diemer was quoted as saying that "next generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 do not offer the sufficient power" needed for some high-quality Crysis
action. This news comes counter to the recent news
that the Crytek team was looking for some PS3 worker bees for a possible Crysis
port to the system. We may not see Crysis
on the PS3, but it's still entirely possible we may see Crysis
-like games in the future on Sony's console.
