    After much anticipation from the public on the Crysis single player demo, Crytek has officially announced that the demo will be delayed to October 26, 2007 in order to be able to release the full game on November 16th.

    Cevat Yerli, President and CEO of Crytek says:

    "First, I am sorry for the bad news - the Crysis single player demo will now be available everywhere on October 26th, 2007. We are taking some extra time to make sure you that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of Crysis at this stage. To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call"

    I got in the multiplayer beta and it was pretty much unplayable for me, 7800gs and AMD 3200 couldn't handle it on the lowest settings at 800x600

    sad but at least I know I don't have to waste money on the final game

    Hmm didn't they say the minimum requirement was a 6800 series? The 7800GS should have been fine.. :cool:

    I'm not surprised its been delayed, the beta ran like crap even on GTX ULTRA:shadedshu so i guess the demo/game needs some major optimising to make a good impression.;)

    *** sorry for my language ***

    :banghead: IM TOTALLY FUCKED OFF :banghead:

    I got a beta key from a friend and DL the client ....... SWEET :D

    I played it every night after work and on the weekends even with my shitty Australian 300 ping ........ AWESOME :D

    To be fair I applied for a key for myself through inCrysis.com and was going to give the key back (special key that could be used again) :)

    3 days ago I kept getting "CD key in use" errors and could only join certain servers :ohwell:

    Last night my key was disabled and now I cant play at all. :shadedshu

    So far I haven't received an email with a key from inCrysis.com (sent out in the last 36hrs) :confused:

    AND NOW the fuckin demo is announced delayed 3 days before release. :twitch::mad:

    WTF is going on with this shit !!!!!

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
    HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    its sad that they are justs about killing the game before it even launches. Its obvious that it'll never live up to the hype, not saying that it wont be a great game...thats for people to decide for themselves but the game has been put on a pedestal as the pinnacle of gaming experiences, and there is no way it could live up to that.

    The demands of the gaming experience, the DX9 vs DX10 split, and the constant delays just puts a dark spot of the whole thing. I was really serious about this game, even joined a couple of user groups to stay informed, but at this point I just dont care anymore. I should have known any project EA got involved in would go to hell, Ive played the Battlefield series since the demo of 1942. The beta revealed a lot of flaws that needed to be addressed, but honestly why bother delaying the demo. If they fix the flaws held by the small user base that is part of the beta, larger ones are going to arise for the average gamer that want the game. Most users that I know who got their betas through the file-nazis (fileplanet founders club) have high end systems and had nothing but problems with beta 1 and 2, but since its under NDA nobody is allowed to say anything about it.

    When you hold out for perfection you end up killing half your audience who are just tired of waiting, since World in Conflict came out I've lost all interest in crysis. If the demo ever does come out I'll give it a shot, but at this point I just dont care anymore. Give me the game or stop telling me how "amazing" its going to be.

    It's still a demo so it might have not been optimized yet. Plus, even if the game dev's say that it'll run with certain specs, that's the LOWEST spec that it'll run at. The LOWEST playable (read: enjoyable) specs are always higher than the minimum specifications listed.

    I think there's a conspiracy... they (the dev's) draw people in with the low specs and when those people find out they can't run it enjoyably with their computer, those people are likely to upgrade (anyone remember the "The way it's meant to be played: nVidia" advertisement at the beginning of every nVidia sponsored game?) to a certain company, thus creating revenue. Smart, but evil... <_<

    Great...

    Crytek can compete with the big ones of the industry - at least when it comes to push expectations and hypes and delay releases. It lacks the "when its done" phrase...

    From recent videos I lowered my expectations since the gameplay and AI didn't look as promising as hyp... err... advertised. I hope it will be a bit more than a good looking shooter at least.

    Crytek is "optimizing" the game since January. If it is still running unsmooth and far from good, either this game was pretty f***ed up in January or all the "optimizations" were pretty useless. 16th November we'll see.

    With my system pushed to it's limit's (I think) the beta is playable on high settings at 1680x1050 x4AA. I thinks the network is partially to blame.
