Crysis 2 is performing better on PS3, than Xbox 360 – Crytek

By Alan Ng - Apr 14, 2010

We have some news for those of you planning to pick up Crysis 2 on either the Xbox 360 or PS3 at the end of the year, as a senior figure within Crytek has revealed some very interesting details concerning both platforms.

As reported from CVG, Crytek Business Development boss Carl Jones was speaking in a recent interview with PSM3 when he revealed the following details:

“At the moment, we’re getting slightly more performance from PS3 compared to 360. I’m very confident that products using CryEngine 3 are going to come out as the best looking, or at least in the top three, on every platform.”

We didn’t expect such a bold statement from someone within Crytek, but you have to admire his honesty. Crytek has stated numerous times that the game will set the graphics benchmark on the PS3, but now we have heard a direct comparison on both builds of the game.

What are your thoughts on this? Have you changed your mind about getting the Xbox 360 version?

    • aimman

      Definately bro! I know i'll be playing on ps3 coz I'm getting sick of upgrading GPU for my pc every a couple of years.

  • douchey

    and much better than burning dual layer discs. i'm just sayin.

    "Better community"?, majority of which are kids, I mute most lobbies…
    "Safe to use"?, it's eaten multiple discs and had 2 hardware issues…

    I've got both systems and if you're not that big on Halo (which I'm not), you won't get your moneys worth out of the 360.

    Amazing!!…… The system with more processing power thanks to Cells and SPUs is performing better then it's less powerful rival. I'd never of seen that coming… lol
    I find it bizarre that alot of people still don't seen to know which the more powerful system is between PS3 and 360. It should be obvious if you look at the exclusives on each system which is tailored to their respective systems specs.

    ur all stupid PC ALL THE WAY!!! but ps3 deff has better processing power and graphics chip sorry xbox fanboys im a PC and you will get a shitty version which you deserve 🙂

    @Daniel the community is nowhere near better. though more of them have mics, a bunch of those people with mics are screaming little kids and idiots that have nothing important to say or have any clue what working together means. My roommate has a 360 and constantly mutes everybody in the room. And if he doesn't mute them he ends up screaming obscenities to the top of his lungs. i don't have a problem with the xbox 360, but i have a problem with fanboys claiming that something is better just because they own it.

    PS: what the hell did u mean safe to use?

  • Daniel

    @ NEO 50% you said is true but about psn neing free doesnt mean its better because its:

    1.better community to use

    3.majority of the people have microphones this means you can communicate easily

    those are the only thing i could wright now but more will come anytime soon

    PS:sorry for spelling mistake im just twelfe and im german

  • darien


    2 stupid and stubborn to actually realise that a game has finally shown the ps3's true capabilities and potential.

  • NEO

    @ jim mind you xbox only has sold 5 million more consoles to date than the ps3 and had a year jump xbox FTL oh did i mention psn is free haha

  • Jim

    Very Slightly….. Wow thats a resounding statement…. hehe…
    Still i'd get the 360 version for the online even if the difference was as huge as being slightly better on PS3…

    @ Jack:
    News flash: The Sky is Blue
    Jack: Nah… You were paid to say that.

    Just sayin…

  • Jack

    He was probably paid to say that..

    • Luis

      actually, microsoft is the one who really pay the developers to say things in their benefit
