    Crytek GmbH will be demonstrating a cross-platform version of its CryENGINE 2 middleware at this year's Game Developer Conference on February 18 - 22 in San Francisco. First publicly shown at last year's conference, and recently released as the technology underlying their critically acclaimed PC game, Crysis, this year's engine will be shown for the first time running on multiple hardware platforms such as the PS3 and Xbox 360, to a select audience. In addition, there will be a public demonstration showing how well the fully optimized engine can perform on a budget PC which can be put together for around 600 dollars complete, including keyboard and mouse. During the GDC session Crytek will also be hosting a series of live presentations of the Sandbox 2 editor.

    So uh, now we will see performance increase? Will the graphics be degraded though?

    No, you are supposed to report news not post it. It's in the rules.

    I think they could have done better to optimize it... but if this works I will be getting Cry2.
