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.”

Halo 3 for kiddies!

Come on any 12 year old can swindle mama to go get him a 360 and play halo 3 crapola. Not everyone has or has access to a High end Pc to play games like Crysis. Thats what makes it worth having and talking about alone. We are few and far apart us crazy people that upgrade every year or 3 (lol) for games like this. I just spent 3 grand cause I could for this game and a few others like COD 4 and Far Cry 2 coming. I could go on and on about the jaggies in 360 games Ive got one. It doesnt compare to my Pc running all max settings at 1920 x 1200 res. Crysis beta runs great by the way on my setup. If everyone had a High End Pc Crysis wouldnt be what it is or will be. So let the kiddies have their little fun with master chief crap for a little while, I grin at the hype over console games every time this happens and shrug it off. Cause I know the beheamoth I have at home that blows anything away the consoles have to offer. Side note,I did enjoy Gears of War though, the one standout game I give props to on 360!
