[QUOTE]Crytek CEO talks out about PC game piracy, again

Crytek CEO talks out about PC game piracy, again Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is in the news again for talking about how PC game piracy has affected his company and sales of its blockbuster hit Crysis. Last month, Yerli said the company would no longer be PC exclusive because of piracy and would bring future titles to multiple platforms.

In this most recent interview, Yerli was asked what he felt were the reasons behind Crysis' "lacluster" sales and he responded with putting most of the blame on PC piracy.

"The PC industry is really, at the moment, I would say the most intensely pirated market ever. It's crazy how the ratio between sales to piracy is probably 1 to 15 to 1 to 20 right now," Yerli said.

"For one sale there are 15 to 20 pirates and pirate versions, and that's a big shame for the PC industry. I hope with Warhead I hope we improve the situation, but at the same time it may have an impact on [our] PC exclusivity in the future." [/QUOTE]

And yet the game sold well for a PC only FPS that was targeted to high end gamers...in a FPS/Army man glutted market.... I really wish GP or the staff would run this on the mainpage this is madness and there is no cake!

Its obvious they are using the magical one eyed one legged bandit as the scape goat to state why they can not contuine to dev only PC in the new console centric focused game biz.... WHERE THE FCK HAVE THEY BEEN?!?!?!?!?!!?

BTW Cryisis becomes boreing as hell after awhile while the game is well built and near bug free it takes alot of power to run it near max and even more willpower to play though it when tis putting you to sleep...
