Crysis 3 maxing out PS3 and Xbox 360 says Crytek, New Screens Released
With Crysis 3, Crytek has pushed Xbox 360 and PS3 graphically that too to its maximum level, according to producer Mike Read.
In a recent interview to ArabicGamers, Mike Read was asked whether, "Crysis 3 pushed the consoles to their limits with respect to graphics and visuals?".
To this Mike Read replied, "Yeah, I think so"
"I mean we're really maxing it out now, especially seeing how much further we've pushed PC hardware until the point where it's still future proof.
"With consoles, with the different pipelines and the way the PS3 and Xbox work, the amount of memory and processing power that we have to deal with, we definitely have to bring that down quite a few notches to make sure we don't ruin the experience for the players.
"But yeah I'd say we're probably pushing both ends of that but still offering a great experience."
Further, Mike Read went on to explained that Crytek learn lots of things about console development on Crysis 2, and this helped them when they begin their work on Crysis 3.
"Just on the back end, we learnt a lot about console development during Crysis 2, which was something we didn't know as much about beforehand.
"So coming into Crysis 3 we really learnt how to develop in tandem with the PC and consoles, but at the same time using the PC and utilising that to its maximum power."
