    helllls yeah, cant wait for this to see just how good crysis 2 might be, and when it launches AMD/NV will follow suit with performance increasing drivers no doubt.

    I'm looking to max DX11 on a GTX460, we'll see how viable that really is... could always add a second.

    It's tough to say really, the GTX 460's were/are some of the best bang for buck cards out there right now.

    Sure, if there were any remnants to cause conflicts.

    The leak doesn't require you install anything. So anyone who has the leak can be assured it won't conflict with the Demo.

    Their skills might though ;)

    IMHO, EA decided to release a PC demo because of PC "Open Beta" test : D

    I CAN'T WAIT.....I'M GETTING AN E-BONER !!!

    Seriously though, do you think that the early leak had anything to do with this demo ? maybe they got scared and decided to make a demo for the PC gamers....possible ?

    I definitely doubt that, Metro 2033 was designed from the ground up on PC and released on PC exclusively, it's game engine with the added affects of DX11 features such as tessellation makes it a tough game to run. Crysis 2 doesn't look like it will be to tough to run.

    imo i find it a shame you didnt need to install anything on the leaked game. Id like to see all the pirates crying. and watch their threads get ignored when they ask for help.


    O/T So we can expect the LEGIT from cryteks mouth specs around the same time then?

    I know it would have been epic. I'm still holding out hoping something comes back to mess their rigs up.

    Do you think it will be on Steam? Or we will need to download hours from different sources? And I think the time is close for them to release the recommended specs.

    here an interview with Richard Morgan: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/114/1149575p1.html
    that is if you like to find out more about the story and in what way they will follow Crysis 1.

    A fragment:
    IGN: What did you want to do with the story in Crysis 2 that wasn't in the first game?

    Richard Morgan: When I looked at the first game, my immediate feeling was that there were a huge number of implications in the plot that never got explored. What does Prophet know that makes him behave so strangely in the latter half of the game? How come he survives the alien attack that killed his other men? Where did he get the alien weapon from? What's the CIA's involvement? Where are the aliens from and what are they doing on Lingshan? These were some of the threads that I aimed to pick up and explore in Crysis 2.

    The leak had absolutely nothing to do with them releasing a PC demo. They said, after releasing the 360 demo, they would be releasing a demo for PC players prior to the release of the game.:slap::toast:

    Metro 2033 is a port... :rolleyes: Crysis2 in DX11 will be much harder to run maxed out than Metro 2033.

    Crysis and Crysis Warhead were on Steam so i'd expect it, but then again, if it was going to be on Steam i'd think by now they would at least let us preorder it.

    A friend who downloaded the leaked beta had no issues maxing DX9 in 1920x1200 (hardcore settings). lets assume that DX11 is twice as taxing (unlikely) then two GTX460's will still play it just fine.

    Forgot it was on 360, calm down.

    And i disagree, the 4A Engine seems much more hard hitting on hardware, Cryengine 3 looks it'll run on almost anything. But of course Crysis 2 isn't out yet so it's hard to determine.

    I think the people running the leak will be thrilled cus now they can rip content from the demo to get the beta running better

    Didn't you know the leaked version actually DOES leave some remnants on your system? You may still be lucky :roll:
