Crytek, the people behind the Crysis series, have spoken up about what they want from the next console generation. To absolutely nobody’s surprise… they want more power. They want to create “console experiences that are close to the PC”. This, of course, ignores the fact that it takes much more than pretty graphics to create a fantastic gameplay experience. Still, we can’t criticize them too much as this has been, and likely always will be, their sticking point. Crysis has always been a technical wonder for benchmarking and pushing hardware. Someone has to be willing to do that, right?
“I think that whatever they end up delivering there are a lot of things that we want, and as you said more power is originally at the core of what we want. We want to be able to deliver a similar experience graphically to console gamers as much as we do in pushing the PC.”
“Being a producer, I deal with all different people, so I’m sure talking to the Art guy they’ll be like “Yeah, we want more graphics!” talking to the Level Design team, “We want more processing power!” and the Technical guys they want a little bit of everything,”
