Original Crysis rated for PS3 & Xbox 360

It appears the original Crysis may be coming to the consoles, according to updated listings in Asia and on the ESRB.


"Can It Run Crysis?"

Gamers that played Crysis 2 on the PS3 or Xbox 360 unlocked the tongue-in-cheek achievement after running through the tutorial. But, while the consoles could run the CryEngine 3-powered sequel, many gamers wondered if it would be able to play the benchmark of benchmarks: the original Crysis.

It appears the original game (pictured above) may be coming to the consoles. Once again, the Korean ratings board has leaked a listing referring to an Xbox 360 version of the game. The listing, filed today, shows Electronic Arts as the publisher. The ESRB listing of the original game has also been updated to reflect both a PS3 and Xbox 360 release.

Earlier this week, a PS3 listing for Limbo was also leaked by the ratings bureau. The developer confirmed its accuracy the next day. We've also reached out to Crytek for comment, and will update if we hear back.

      Wonder if this is legit, granted hadn't Crytek said for a while this wasn't possible being the levels were too big to fit into the memory footprint of the consoles.

        Well like Far Cry was one can expect a hackjob port then.

        I would guess they've improved streaming performance enough to make it work. Either that or they've modified or split up the levels

        Crysis 2 used streaming on consoles but loaded the whole levels into RAM at once on PC

      It's about time. Crytek talked about this years ago. The definitive version of the game was supposed to be on the PS3. They showed off some pre-alpha video using multiple cells on the Cell Processor. This is the first time I think in 2 years that heard anything.

      Probably using CE3 in order to run it on console now.. Cool though, glad they are at least keeping the series consistent across platforms if true.

      If Crytek are going back and re-doing Crysis for consoles, I wonder if there's any chance they will re-code the entire last level on the carrier, as it is THE buggiest chunk of software ever made. The entire game is smooth sailing up until that point, it really is a blight on an otherwise awesome game. I think it would mean a hell of a lot to their fans if they could do this for PC people.

        What about the carrier was so bad? I got killed by the ice beam a ton, but that was because I sucked.

          For me the final chopper never arrived, just stayed like 5 miles away. I didn't know it was supposed to approach so I swam at it after waiting about 5 minutes of epic music. I ended up redoing the level 3 more times.

          - The lock on for the TAC cannon was badly explained, and when it was time to use it against the alien battleship it still didn't always work 100%.

          - You could fall through the deck and die at random. It really doesn't matter where you were on the ship.

          - Frozen (and indestructible) NPCs on the deck. Hilarious to watch an officer just stand in the doorway and watch an epic battle unfold, but unintentional.

            Not to mention the framerate for that entire sequence plummets like a rock. Such a piece of shit ending from both a technical and gameplay standpoint.

        For real though. I clipped through the carrier so many times I almost just gave up

        Provided they stop playing when the aliens show up.

          Oh stop being a baby and switch out for a shotgun and a gauss rifle. Shotgun for the little guys, gauss rifle because it murders the big ones. There's plenty of interesting gameplay and sights for zero-gee and beyond, just as long as you don't confine yourself by using the boring silenced FY71 or running out of ammo in the cave because you didn't check the ammo caches.

            I think people refer to the fact that when the aliens show up you not longer are able to play the game in as many various ways as you were at the start. It just becomes like what you described, another generic shooter :c.

          Most fun to be had in crysis is in the user made levels and consoles wont see any of those.

            Examples? Most of the user-made levels were pretty shit, unless you're talking about MW LL

              Treasure, cold mountain, vulcano, savanna2jungle, and many many more. Love these levels because they are so much more open a free to do just about anything. They also get much better fps than the campaign.

          Everyone hates the ship, but I reckon it's one of the best parts in the game.

          The tension as he narrates what he sees is brilliant.

          Oh, yes. Crysis has such great gameplay. Warhead, not that great, but it's a nice game too, nevertheless.

      We can safely assume that this will be using Cryengine 3 on the consoles. It would be nice, then, if the PC versions of Crysis and Warhead got an engine update with some DX11 goodies.
