The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Crytek: "It Is Impossible" For Next-Gen Consoles To Match PCs

Posted on Monday, February 18 @ 09:26:44 PST by Alex_Osborn


Crytek, the team behind the upcoming first-person shooter Crysis 3, believes that next-gen consoles won't be able to compete on the same technical level as PCs.

According to studio founder, Cevat Yerli, in an interview with Eurogamer:
Without breaking NDAs that are in place, realistically, from purely a price point perspective, it is impossible. It’s impossible to package $2000-3000 into a mainstream, let’s say $500 console.

I’m not saying they are $500 consoles. They may launch a console at $2000, but the consumer pricing is usually much lower than that. So, given consumer pricing, and given the cost of production of a gamer PC and the amount of watt of power it needs, which is like a fridge, it’s impossible.


Could the technical gap between the PS4/Xbox 720 and top-of-the-line PCs be that apparent right out of the gate? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
