Demo of Crysis sacrifices self to preserve retail release
All Microsoft Xbox 360 owners have September 25 marked on calendars as being the launch day of the highly anticipated first-person shooter,
. For PC-only gamers, however, that very same day was supposed to be
host to the playable demo of another much awaited game
. Unfortunately, September 25 will now only play host to one of those games, as the
demo will not be released.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of
developer Crytek, sent a message to the media apologizing for the delay, explaining that the demo had to be delayed in order to assure the retail release target.
“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
at this stage,” said Yerli. “To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call.”
As a result, the demo will be delayed a month to October 26, but will come with a couple extras for gamers.
“The SP demo will be released with our CryEngine 2 - Sandbox 2 game editor, giving the community the opportunity to get familiar with the vast amount of tools they will have at their disposal four weeks before we ship, something we have always wanted to do," Yerli explained.
Although gamers are surely disappointed by the delay, Crytek looks to keep its promise for the
shipment of the final product
“This is an exciting time for us at the studio as the development of Crysis comes to an end and we are only a few weeks from Gold Master,” added Yerli. “We appreciate your patience and are looking forward to getting Crysis into your hands on November 16.”

Well, the game is set in the year 2019, crytek is a german company and (in the real world) the US army is actually looking into the possibility of buying german (KMW) armored vehicles to replace the horrible humvee-deathtrap. So, yea, why not? :)

The US Army is not looking to purchase KMW's armored vehicles. Course, if you haven't noticed though, many of these weapons developer's either share ideas or steal ideas from each other.
The US military buys mainly from US companies, as they have more control over any information pertaining to these weapons and weapons systems.
Either way, all light armored vehicles have issues. That's why the US military has the MRAP program. American companies are producing designs for it, cept one British company. Doesn't matter to much, as only two steel mills in the US are qualified to produce armor for the military.
US Army has already ordered 44 MK5 vehicles and 369 ASVs from the MRAP program. One of the vehicles from the MRAP program can be seen in Transformers, as Bonecrusher.
