Crysis 2 Beta: Xbox 360 Only – PC, PS3 Owners got Screwed?

We have a few somewhat ‘surprising’ details to bring you now, as it has been confirmed that Crytek are currently sending out emails for a closed multiplayer beta for Crysis 2, which will only be available on the Xbox 360.

Many gamers may feel aggrieved about this, particularly PC gamers who believe the PC should be the lead platform for the game – after all, it is a sequel to a PC game.

On the other hand, PS3 owners may be upset about this, particularly with the consensus being that the PS3 version of the game was performing better than the Xbox 360 version, according to Crytek themselves. They then bigged up the fact that the PS3 version in 3D will be better than the 2D version, so this seems to be a bit of a letdown for both parties.

If you’re a Xbox 360 owner, this is obviously great news. According to this report from VG247, the emails are being sent out now to ‘valued’ members of the Crysis community only. If you think you make that list, you better double check your inbox now. There is no exact date for the beta it seems, just a heads-up from Crytek that it’s due to start soon.

What do you make of this? As a PC or PS3 owner, do you feel letdown by Crytek or not?
