Crysis 2 is going to look the best on the PC, without any doubt. But if you're not up to spending hundreds more for a PC that can play it at the visual quality you want, then the next best option is a console. Crytek promises awesome graphics even for those playing on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, but if you have the choice between the two platforms, the latter could be the stronger one.
Typically, developers get better results from the Xbox 360 when making a multiplatform game, thanks to Microsoft's friendlier development platform. Crytek, however, hasn't been seeing the same sort of thing that most other developers do.
"We haven't found it more difficult to develop for PS3," Crytek's business development boss Carl Jones told PSM3, according to CVG. "We're lucky in the fact that we've come to the generation slightly later than other people - the ones who were trying to build the first technology and games were surprised at how different the PS3 was. We took our time and worked out the right way to approach it."
"At the moment, we're getting slightly more performance from PS3 compared to 360," Jones said. "I'm very confident that products using CryEngine 3 are going to come out as the best looking, or at least in the top three, on every platform."
Visually, however, those who have seen it say that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions look virtually identical; but no doubt that there will be comparisons galore once the game hits stores.
