CryEngine 3 to run Better on PS3 than 360 !! says Crytek !
says the President and CEO of Crytek Cevat Yerli himself!!
Yerli went on to describe how the engine is being built to perform across platforms. "The CE3 runs currently at more or less the same quality bar. I say more or less because the engine still optimizes itself to power of the platforms' intrinsics. So the PS3 will run slightly better here
, it'll look and feel probably the same, but the engine is diverting computation needs to power subsystems available to the PS3, and the 360 differently, and PC differently."
Yerli explained how the company's CE 2, a powerful engine capable of producing the incredible visuals seen in Crysis Warhead, and the new CE 3 differ. "In order to make the quality of 2 run in consoles we had to rewrite a lot of the engine," said Yerli. "Without that knowledge of CE 2 we would not be able to bring that quality on console. So we had to go through that experience first of delivering a high-end PC engine then optimize it to a lower-end Warhead experience. Research was going on the last two years parallel to development of Crysis, and only with the two things happening at the same time were we able to know how we could actually bring the visual quality of CE 2 into an engine that can actually perform on the console. So that's why CE 3 is not just a little improvement upon CE 2, it's actually a significant rewrite towards a console engine…It's not 2.2, 2.5, it's actually way more for us, and that's why we called it CE 3."
Yerli addressed doubts expressed by the hardcore PC crowd. "There are some concerns from PC gamers that 'you've sold your soul to the consoles.' That is completely nonsense, because the PC version of CE 3 is still scalable and has more features, thanks to consoles actually…Let's say you want to do a PC-only game with CE 3 over CE 2, CE 3 will enable you to do more. There are features like our real-time lighting system and real-time global animation system that are not in CE2. These are features that are significant in adding visual fidelity that were not available with CE2."
