Re: Crysis 2 MultiPlayer Demo

Never played the original Crysis so why anyone would expect me to skip the original and jump straight into a sequel I don't know?

It's like watching Saw 2 and totally ignoring the first film. ''who's he? what's his name?'' etc.

He revealed to Steinman that the footage shown, i.e the dynamic lighting, explosions, environments were generated on the PS3, and not on a PC like most of us would presume.

Furthermore, after seeing the footage in front of him, Steinman concluded that the game looked better than ‘almost’ anything he had ever seen on a PS3.

Because they put a demo on only the Xbox? I'll admit it wasn't a smart move but it hardly makes them "scum."

Re: Crysis 2 MultiPlayer Demo

Aren't demos up to Sony as well? It takes 2 to Tango no?

Fair enough, maybe I went over the top by calling them scum. I'm just annoyed that they, Microsoft, or possibly even EA have chose to release the demo on the 360 only.

To be fair, it should be the PC that gets the exclusive Demo since they're the ones who made Crysis as popular as it is today. Wasn't the 360 version supposed to be graphically the worst version of the bunch? I just don't understand why the Demo is exclusive to one platform in the first place TBH. I thought the reason for a demo was to pursuade people to buy the game, well doing what they've done is only making me decide to do the exact opposite.

If the demo is anything like what they had on at Eurogamer, then you're really not missing much :smileywink:

Re: Crysis 2 MultiPlayer Demo

I'd say it's a Microsoft backed decision as yeah I agree Crytek should have it on PC [the demo] as PC gamers made them what they are, and EA love the PS3 so my only guess is MS did some fiddling to get it onto 360.

Re: Crysis 2 MultiPlayer Demo

The PS3 has had exclusive MP demos too. Weren't BFBC2 and Assassins Creed Brotherhood PS3 only?

 

If I'm right it's swings and roundabouts really.

 

PS - Yeah I know they were called betas. They were MP demos with a posh name.
