[QUOTE]Crytek abandons PC exclusivity
Director of the German studio blames piracy for the change of heart, but confirms Crysis never coming to consoles.

Crysis, developed by German studio Crytek and released in late 2007, was one of the most highly praised PC-exclusive titles last year. It won GameSpot's Best of 2007 Editors' Choice award for Best PC Game and a host of other gongs.

However, it seems all is not rosy at Crytek HQ in Germany. The studio's director and founder, Cevat Yerli, recently spoke out about the problems currently besetting his firm, PC gaming in general, and how Crytek plans to address the issues it faces.

In an interview with Croatian magazine PC Play, Yerli said, "We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin... PC gamers that pirate games, inherently destroy the platform.

"Similar games on consoles sell factors of 4-5 more. It was a big lesson for us and I believe we won't have PC exclusives as we did with Crysis in future. We are going to support PC, but not exclusive anymore."

When asked if this meant that the rumours of Crysis coming to consoles were correct, Yerli simply stated that the port would be "impossible," saying that the game would have to be, "largely changed to bring it to Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3," and that Crytek's, "internal focus is not linked to bring Crysis to consoles."[/QUOTE]

and link and finally

(sowwy bout that...........)

Ha ha ha ha blame the blockbuster mentality of the game industry, they do not want to price point products and make a limited amount of them at a time like the music and film industries they want to create a glut of 60$ titles and play Russian roulette if most sale or not and wonder why there is a glut of 20$ bargain bin titles in 6+ months…, then add that most of the whole Gdamn industry wants to release buggy, unpolished under deved tittles at full price the consumer can never return because the game and retail and media industry's do not want to deal with the fact media can SUCK , its their own dmn greed that’s destroying them…..

Even some inside the industry comprehend it’s not the pirates, it never will be.
You must under understand only a small percentage of consumers have the will or the knowledge to do it, if 30% of the consumers will never buy new, will buy used or “download” that is a segment of consumers that they will N E V E R attain under any circumstance.

The game industry is pulling the music industry’s own branded “wool blinders” out blaming everything but the fact they refuse to change their modem operandi.

Pirates (like terrorists) are the perfect stwary scapegoat they can be used for all sorts of anti consumer activities and states of denial.

I'll also add Cryisis is a limited sandbox FPS however it has more polish in the engine,designs and options than the sloppy PC ports of Jericho,Turok and Bioshock put together....


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
Incoherence is my friend and grammar my bane, which is the fulcrum of suffering I place upon others!:ZippyDSMlee
