It's not a habit for their new games, and I'm not complaining at all since here is the first Webisode of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. The game will be released at the end of December in Japan, and a few weeks later everywhere else.
It's worth noting that the video has been encoded with the VC1/WMV9 Advanced Profile codec, as will be more videos in the future here. They work natively with the 360, but require to install either Windows Media Player 11 or at least the codec itself you'll find on the video download page. Mac and other alternative OS users will have to use a nightly build of VLC, mplayer or any other ffmpeg based media player.
@Sdarts: Heat is a barrier both for PC and consoles. We succeed in making things smaller, but it's the heat barrier that has to be overcome. (9 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: there needs to be a breakthrough in transistors before a huge next step will be possible. The next consoles will not have the power of a gtx980ti simply because of heat problems. (9 Hours ago)
ThouThough only a few people would be able to run it, even among PC gamers, which is not viable financially. Hence why I'm thinking of the next generation of consoles. (10 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Yes, but I meant that even now PC can do so much more. If an amateur can do that much with an injector in 7 days, you can bet DICE can do 10 times better with the source code, engine, etc (10 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Of course you can do more with more powerful hardware. (10 Hours ago)
But at the end of the day, that's not feasible. Consoles is where the vast majority of sales are, so first we need more powerful consoles, which in turn will drive PC titles' technologies forward. (10 Hours ago)
@droezelke: Crysis 3 will be a 3 years old game in February next year, and it's still one of the best - if not the best - looking games. I agree AAA companies could do much more with PC titles. (10 Hours ago)
