Crysis direct-feed trailer

Crysis direct-feed trailer

Crytek finally released the GDC trailer for Crysis, still off-screen and without sound, but in a very good quality. The game itself is PC only right now, but the graphics engine is supposed to be used in next-gen console games. Do I really have to write anything about how many asses this video kicks?
Update: Direct-feed 720p version with sound added.

Not impressed those graphics can be rendered in realtime at 220 fps on my atari. Seriously if next gen consoles can achieve ANY of this shown here at a playable 30 or even 60fps then I've died and gone to heaven.

I'd be the dead gamer sitting next to you... with the stunned look of 'daaaaammmnn...' on my face!

yah wow, that truly is amazing. kind of misleading though posting this as xbox360 news since it's strictly PC for time being.
Commented on 2006-03-27 21:21:54
this is how next gen should look, just a big wow.
Commented on 2006-03-27 21:27:04
WOOOOW!!! :D

I wonder what kindof hardware is needed for this (I will get it!!!)?
Commented on 2006-03-27 21:28:54
DirectX10 FTW!

wait

how is this direct feed?

Yer right!!, If my current gen PC outdoes my 360 running oblivian (much smoother framerates, no shimmering, higher resolutions).. how the hell could the 360 possbily acheive the Nextgen PC visuals..


Yes, its possible, but there would be alot lost in translation.. Alot.

the coming Next-gen multi-core PCs are gonna put the 360 and Ps3 to shame.. what you see there is just the start.

just go by the dell renegade system. only 10 grand lol You should be good for about 3 years.

youre current gen PC can't do HDR + AA at the same time


the only part of ESIV on PC, graphically at least, that's any better is like .5% better texture quality

that system wouldn't be able to run this game due to lack of DirectX10 shaders
Commented on 2006-03-27 21:37:06
current middle end (anything below 2 grand) can not do visuals like this. No way, i just dont believe it. I know crytec is great with engine building but this will take some insane hardware to pull off right now.

HDR + AA can might aswell be there, i play my 360 and PC on the same montior and let me tell you, the the PC version on my rigg looks and runs a whole lot better, like night and day....

when i play the 360 version i can see even feel the poor thing struggle oftenly.. Poor little soul having trouble living up to the hype surrounding it. :(

The game has both a DX10 and DX9 path.

But I would not bother with a $10K DX9 rig. DX10 GPUs will be more robust in regards to shader power, features, and effeciency. There are things that currently take 6 passes in DX9 hardware that DX10 hardware can do in a single pass.

I am excited for DX10 refresh GPUs (avoid the first run like the plague!) and DX10+1 GPUs.

Dont compare the 360 to pc gaming. Its not the same. Would you compare one car to another that costs over 4 times as much? no.

You make it sound like the 360 has already been tapped out.

f2hunter now i know your full of it.

I'm running a athlon x2 4200+, I've overclocked the core clock to a stable 2.6 1 gig of corsair, platinum el rev 2 ram, ati x1900xtx, I downloaded a torrent copy of elder scrolls and I own the 360 version and I play my 360 and use my pc on the same 21 inch dell p1130 monitor don't give me this nonsense about the pc version looking and running a while lot better "like night and day" That is bull I have both versions and the 360 version runs flawlessly i've yet to run into fps problems and the far off hill distance looks equal on both the 360 and the pc you could possibly argue for the 360 being the better looking of the 2 due to the HDR being used.

You are speaking about your pc running it better when your PC version of elder isn't even using the more stressful HDR graphical effect and yet the 360 version is using it and runs the game flawlessly. Only performance pauses I've seen are the brief loading screens which take place for 1 second.

Don't give me this nonsense about the 360 having trouble living up to the hype surrounding it. Now I don't even believe you have the game lol what you said was complete and utter bull the 360 runs it flawlessly and I've ran it right here on my pc and the pc version does not have better graphics or runs WAYY better (if that was the case HDR would be in there)

mhh . that´s not directfeed you can see the edge of a monitor on the right side and the colors/brightness aren´t really pretty - nethertheless - best version of this video out there :) thanks

Do you ever stop? Oblivion was on the works for over 4 years for the PC--this is a PC port. Check Bethesda's history of technical merits (scary!). While this game works on the Xbox 360, it is in no way designed to take advantage of it.

Heck, the PC performed so poorly with the advanced shadowing system they had to remove the ENTIRE shadowing engine from the versions (something the 360 would have been great at with the extra shaders and double-Z). PC ports are always hit or miss. CoD2 performs great on the Xbox 360 (much better than comparably priced PC GPUs... it knocks the teeth in on a $299 GPU) while Quake 4 sputters. Not all ports are (a) well designed for the 360 or (b) have a lot of "tender loving care".

Fact is Oblivion runs well enough on the 360 and has some graphical features (HDR + AA at the same time) which the PC version cannot do (because HDR performance on PC GPUs sucks and has a huge performance hit and adding in the extra AA hit it would kill any current PC GPU). So there are tradeoffs, but unless you have a $500 GPU your not getting anything better than the 360.

No one is argueing every 360 game looks great or is even a good game, but almost EVERY post of yours is, "The hardware sucks". Not much dialogue there.

I don't think he is.. To be totally honest nothing sofar on the Xbox 360 has really impressed me much.. With that I mean, I haven't seen anything yet I couldn't run on my 3.4Ghz, 2GB, 7800GT PC.. Most stuff even runs better on my PC, at higher resolutions.. But who knows, maybe the Xbox 360 games will become better when developers finally start taking full use of the console's capabilities and stop making current-gen ports.. But then again, I doubt upcoming stuff like the Unreal 3 Engine games (like Gears of War etc) will look better then anything a PC can do.. And when stuff like shown in this Crysis trailer shows up on the PC, the next-gen consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3) are no competition whatsoever anymore..

gattiman got it right, it's useless comparing gameconsoles with PC's.. The PC will always look better, but it will cost you 'at least' 4 times more money.. Only advantage gameconsoles have is their price..

ditto Acert93 and Optimusv2... I really cannot comprehend what f2hunter is attempting to say. I have read his comments a couple of times and all I get is, "I have never played Oblivion, I think it is a soccer game for the N64. I hate the X360!!!"

Thats probably becuase. A) im not a fanboy. B) im mostly 'genuinely' let down by the 360s performance.

Saying that most of the 'very little' Japanese-based games ive seen run flawlessy.. obviously they have different priorities and skills.
