REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

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

Posted on Monday, February 18 @ 09:26:44 Eastern 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.
