Crytek really likes to make this claim, don't they?
There's absolutely no doubt that the original Crysis was a graphical benchmark on PCs when it released. There's also no doubt that Crysis 2 looked pretty damn amazing, on both PCs and consoles. And now, according to a recent Tweet from Crytek boss Cevat Yerli, the upcoming Crysis 3 will "push the 360 and PS3 to its limits."
First of all, we're fairly certain the 360 is at its limit; that's not bias talking; it's merely observation and what developers have said. Secondly, Crysis 2 isn't the best-looking game on the PS3 and in our opinion, it wasn't even the best when it first launched. And unless Crytek shows us something more impressive than Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us , we won't be so quick to agree with the "to its limits" comment. We're not entirely sure the team knows exactly what those limits are …we'll leave it up to Sony's first-party studios to figure that out.
However, one thing is definite: Crysis 3 will indeed look incredible. You don't have to worry about that. But Crytek continually making this kind of statement sorta reminds us of Peter Molyneux telling everyone that Fable was going to be the greatest RPG ever made…and didn't he make a similar comment just recently about something else? …anyway.
