The console wars are by no means unheard of, and ever since the PlayStation 3 released, the Xbox 360 and itself have been competing. Though exclusive games are by far more important for competition than multi-platform titles, such titles have been important for competition as well. It seems that everytime a multi-platform title releases, YouTubers start uploading comparison videos, where fanboys from both sides of the isle go to defend their console.
According to an interview Crytek had with Gamerzines, developers at Crytek aren’t planning on that being the case with their upcoming title, Crysis 2. Though the PS3 version has yet to be shown to the press, Crytek claims that the PS3 version “looks just like the 360 version. Other than the key prompts you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.” Moreover, visuals aside, the game is said to run the same on both consoles as well:
“The PS3 version runs the same as 360; 30 frames a second and in 3D, you know, everything. I don’t know why EA chose not to. I’m more than happy to show it.”
It looks like we’ll have to take Crytek’s word here, granted only the 360 version has been shown to the press up until this point. Though Crytek claimed last year that they were getting better performance out of the PlayStation 3 console than the 360, that has clearly changed with these recent statements made by the developer.
Sorry PS3 and 360 fanboys, looks like you’re going to have to dig deeper to defend your console this go around.
