[citation][nom]rohitbaran[/nom]Well, the release date is 4 days away. Does it really matter now?[/citation]

It matters if there really are big differences between the PS3 version and 360 and they don't want negative buzz affecting early sales.

I don't know if I should laugh or be angry at this nut-jobs absurd comment.

I own a Xbox 360 and I don't care about any,
un-optimized press preview code.
My highly optimized graphics card and multi-core CPU will rock a console any freakin day of the weak.

it ticks you off because if he said the ps3 demo was as good as the 360 demo, you could perhaps MAYBE take his word for it

but saying it's as good as the pc demo is like well... now i know your lying. the game sucks, yeah, but the pc version is superior

What he is saying is the PC demo is dumbed down, particularly graphically. If the PC and the console versions are the same then there is a big problem, because 5-6 years old consoles and a new i7 580GTX are not the same and their games should not look the same.

I know i would pulled anything related to FPS on a console since its a funny joke!

Who can seriously play an FPS on a console and think auto-aim,poor controlls, weak gfx ect is how the developer intended their game to be enjoyed.

"For some, the PlayStation 3 demo of Crytek's long-awaited sequel to Crysis was the only way to get an early taste of the game, especially for those who don't have the PC hardware to run the game at an acceptable framerate"

Uh....This game is nowhere near its predecessor on system demand, I think anything 8800GT or better will run it fine...so don't make it out to be hard on systems....oh btw did you read this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-2-performance-best-graphics-card-multiplayer,2901.html it should enlighten you on the requirements.

Actually the lowest-end card that can play this game with an acceptable framerate would be a 8800GTS, The game has roughly the same requirements as the first game but since technology has advanced so far since Crysis (A.k.a, Very powerful GPU's at really cheap prices), that practically anybody with a desktop can spend $100 on a card and be able to play this game (so long as they have a good enough power supply)

No a i7 and 580GTX vs a PS3 or 360 are like comparing a moped to a Shelby Cobra GT500.

Theyboth do the same thing, just one does the same thing faster, better and in much more style and class.

I can give a writer the benefit of doubt about not knowing this. But there is no reason an editor here wouldn't and have the writer correct this. Of course even newspapers don't even have good editing anymore. Just sad.
