    I just hope that console quality settings on PC should be achievable by a dual core CPU and 512MB VRAM gcard like GTS450 range(i noe it's 1GB but still) and 2GB system ram(thnx win7, maybe XP will run on less, but under DX9)

    cant wait for the demo, hopefully they include a benchmark run in it too.

    heres hoping for equal or better performance than Crysis, with equal or better visuals.

    the change of setting alone is going to look amazing imo.

    Of course it will. That has always been attainable, even was on Crysis 1* with a comparable build at the time (i.e with a HD3850, GF 7900 or X1900) but it also required you to play with comparable settings, which would include low resolution (720p or maybe 1440*900), low anisotropic filtering settings and low AA (2x), if at all. With Crysis 2, and the computer you mention, I'm pretty sure you will be able to attain better shader/texture/shadow settings than on consoles AND still be able to use 1080p + 16xAF + 4xAA.

    * I mean that on Crysis 1 you could use a combo of medium, high and some low settings and attain same or better graphics than those in console games at the time.

    dunno why some people are moaning, they are recommending a 3.5 year old GPU and 4 year old dual core as minimum req's I would say thats about standard for most modern games, though that said, I was never a fan of the 1st one so doubt I will like this one anymore!! :rolleyes:

    New facts about Crysis on PC revealed by Cevat Yerli, the man behind Crytek. Interesting stuff. If you want to read all the link is here

    http://www.next-gen.biz/features/crysis-2-interview

    Just a teaser: "There was a bit of confusion over the source of the latest screenshots released. Which platform did they came from? PC?

    I think they were a mix. There was one 360 and the others were PC. But honestly, the PC version hasn’t been shown off yet at all. They were rendered out of PC but at console settings. The PC settings aren’t being disclosed at all right now. We haven’t made any screenshots yet that show the PC settings."

    Does anyone else think that fighting aliens or else thorough city ruins is getting boring and LAME???
    I'm thinking that the same $hit happened in games like Duke Nukem 3D, FEAR, Gears of War, Stalkers, Metro 2033, Deus Ex 2, etc, etc...:shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu

    So much moaning about a game that was never good. Really, what exactly is so awesome about Crysis other than showing off your penis rig specs?

    I thought Crysis was actually a very good game...the gameplay of fighting Koreans that then evolves into an alien shootout was imaginative in my opinion. Not to mention that the graphics had no comparison at the time of release, and with certain mods out there, they got even better.

    Really looking forward to this game, when it does come out. Played both Crysis, and Crysis Warhead, and thought that WH was a bit better. Never did dabble to much in the Mp portion of the games, mainly because I would be a bullet magnet.

    Can't wait for the Pc demo!!

    8800GT is MINIMUM for Crysis 2 while the GTS was RECOMMENDED for the first.

    Yerli said that years ago. a lot of work went into making CryEngine 3 for consoles.

    i thought all of crysis was very good, and deffinaltely the best inside an alien ship bit ive yet seen on anything including film,it was sensational and baffling, perfect

    also im sure i heard a crytek spokesperson state that crysis 2 would deffinately be a true replacement for 1 in the CAN IT RUN CRYSIS THO category we all talked about,way back when and im sure he also stated that like the first it would be a FEW years before people can truly max it. I know ive no proof of this! im asking if anyone else heard or rems this?

    i'm not sure. sometimes developers are sneaky and demo the PC version with XBOX 360 controller. latest example of that is a title called Brink by Bethesda.

    My point was that Mailman's comment isn't all true. Crysis 1 only says 256MB graphic card with this comment: "Supported chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (Radeon X800 Pro for Vista) or greater". And we don't even have the Recommended specs yet, so I don't see how people screams "port and it'll be horrible and and run like shiet!!!111!!" from looking at system specs.
