    that definitely seems to be true. but i dont think it is necessarily a bad thing since having the ability to easily patch a game and quickly download it is a luxury. some companies abuse it more than others do for sure.

    A word of advice for all people that are d/l Crysis2 or any other illegal things on the internet i would think twice about getting caught , ever heard of ACTA?

    Acta

    As soon as they are ready & making laws against the internet piracy they'll have all the power needed to arrest/fine people or take out the rights for you to have the internet at home...
    It is coming fast like it or not...

    Anyhow like i said before i'll wait till the game comes out under $25 then i'll buy it even if i have to wait 6 months or more for it
    I still got a few unfinished games to will last me for a little while longer since i hardly play games anymore ~5-10 hours/month

    Anyone got anymore? I wanna know how well, lets say, a 5870 might run it.

    And is Hardcore like the best setting?

    hardcore is the best setting, i can tell you that a 5870 will run it fine.

    this is no crysis 1 - the requirements are much lower due to the smaller, linear maps.

    Hardcore = High
    Advanced = Med
    Gamer=low

    From what I read a single 5970 should almost run the same. Crossfire is pegging gpu usage but not apparently increasing performance (possibly the reason for the INTENSE flickering). I'll "find" some single GPU numbers in a second.

    And how big is it? Say would it be a mess on an SSD with Windows 7 etc installed? or is it a jobby for the 2TB... lol.

    Wondering how compressed it is.

    the beta is 9GB, which is a good indication of the size of a full install of retail. thats for a multi language version.

    load times are extremely quick in the beta (probably thanks to the smaller maps, yet again) so an SSD will not be justified.

    How can they justify 9GB for total install with smaller, linear maps? What, 5GB for languages? :confused:

    A GTX460 OC has no issues maxing 1080P, a 5870 will be better yet. not to mention these are numbers from a beta, with drivers that most likely have a lot of room for improvement for the time of release and after that.

    Despite the beta being widely available, TorrentFreak stats show (completed) downloads of just 10,000 on public BitTorrent trackers. And that’s not because this title isn’t popular with gamers. Indeed, given the current mood, it’s not unthinkable that these low download numbers may well be a result of it being quite the opposite.

    While some people are clearly happy to get an advance copy, it’s eye opening to see people on torrent sites encouraging others NOT to download it. Sure, there is the usual crowd throwing a middle finger up to the publishers while delighting in their juicy booty, but so many others are pleading with people to support Crytek by putting their hands in their pockets next month instead.

    That said, there are others who aren’t heeding the advice but are treating this download as a demo to be deleted in due course, having grown tired of waiting for an official one to be released. Perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned there.

    High profile game leaks don’t have to result in the doomsday scenario feared by their creators – unless they’re terrible games of course. Rewind back to October 2003 and a beta of Half-Life 2 was also leaking onto the Internet, a full 6 months before its release date, putting this 49 day advance copy of Crysis 2 in the shade. HL2 went on to do staggeringly well, selling 12 million copies to date.

    if crysis 2 bombs then ea and crytek will obviously blame piracy. they can show that they lost 10,000 * $60 = $600,000 in potential revenue.

    Games will never stop being developed for the PC because 1) too many people will bitch about it and 2) PC sales will plummet and that will really hurt nVIDIA/ATI. However, heavy conditions may start applying in order to help circumvent piracy. IMO, if games were a bit cheaper to buy, piracy would be much lower. Its ridiculous how PC games have gone up $10 in the last couple years. Who wants to pay $60 for a video game? Espeically if its going to bring in MILLIONS of dollars anway. Granted people need to make money to put food on the table but it could be justified to pay $39.99 for a game and $29.99 for an expansion (depending on how much youre bringing into the expansion). $59.99 is just overkill if you want my honest opinion.

    They can't show that, they can only show that 10,000 people downloaded it, and if each one of those was to buy the game it would have been $600,000. The developers/producers of pirated content love to try and make the leap that every pirated copy equals a lost sale, but that simply is not true. The large majority of people would simply never buy the what they pirate.

    I downloaded the leaked copy, I haven't played it yet though. I would have likely never bought the game, not after hearing that Crytek/EA tailored the game to consoles, killing the open level design in favor of linear levels for the consoles. I certainly never would have bought it for $60, never ever, not in a million years.

    If Crysis 2 bombs, EA will blame it on piracy. However, the real reason will more than likely be because PC gamers simply didn't want another BS console port.

    So is it 60.00 USD retail? Is there a price tag on a digital copy yet? Since my country's dollar rocketed, 60 bucks is nothing compared to 99-120 AUD which is still going for some games. So digital distribution is helping us out big time to the point you can't really complain about a game's price.

    I've deleted the folder now, got to the subway noticed some models are missing some actions and it is as much as I can take, inanimate objects made this incomplete for me but so far I enjoyed the first level, not too fussed with it being linear as with sand box FPS games I'd expect some RPG elements and Crysis was really never that type of game in the first place. No point running around a map with no dungeons to explore and loot to obtain.

    That is another major reason PC gamers pirate video games. Its because of shitty ports from consoles to PC's. Yet, the developers will continue to go back and blame piracy as their reasoning for doing a crappy port which is utter bullshit. If game companies want piracy to start slowing down, then they need to crack down on their games and make sure its not shitty and its what people want.

    I love first person shooters and i thought the original Crysis was an alright game but not good enough to justify $50 or $60. However, just about every FPS is the same boring crap title after title and they're generally the same length in playability. Thats what PISSES me off the most. I cant stand to play them and most of them have 0 re-playability for me. (i cant speak for others on this) This is what turned me into MMORPGS like World of Warcraft. Yeah you have to pay $15 a month to play the game online, but at least it keeps all the hackers out, the game constantly up to date, constant bug fixes, etc.

    IM TIRED OF CONSOLE PORTS AND SHITTY PLAYING GAMES. TAILOR PC GAMES FOR FUCKING PC'S. STOP BEING LAZY.

    Ive yet to notice a digital copy not be the same price as a retail copy. Seems the only difference between the two are convenience.

    I already posted my conspiracy theory. :D

    All the videos I've seen show that Crysis 2 is quite a bit more linear than the first 1 (or 2?). I am disappoint. :rolleyes:

    I'm of the opinion that the fear and speculation can be more damaging to the industry then piracy itself.
    Don't we still have quite a few days left to release? If they keep up this pace it'd be:
    10,000 * 40 days * $60 = $2.4 million :eek:
    Not that I actually believe that sorta ruckus math though. :eek:

    It's a bit different here in Australia, as I said games here go for around 70 up to 120 AUD retail most of the time when on steam you could get some for almost half the price. example is left 4 dead 2, going for 37-50 bucks in our local shops when you can buy it on steam for 5-10 dollars
