    Crytek: next-gen consoles "impossible" to match PCs

    .
    .
    Crytek head says next-gen consoles 'impossible' to match PCs


    As gamers prepare for their likely first glimpse of the next generation tomorrow, at least one executive is tempering expectations. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli says it is "impossible" for the next-generation consoles to match high-end gaming PCs.

    "Without breaking NDAs that are in place, realistically, from purely a price point perspective, it is impossible," Yerli told Eurogamer. "It's impossible to package $2000-3000 into a mainstream, let's say $500 console. I'm not saying they are $500 consoles. They may launch a console at $2000, but the consumer pricing is usually much lower than that." He further stated that Moore's Law dictates that hardware evolutions mean consoles launching in 2013, 2014, or even 2015 "will never beat a PC again."

    The other issue at play is the PC culture, which Yerli says has grown more advanced and devoted to powerful gaming rigs. "If you look at PC gaming, that has changed also. The whole modular way you can design a PC today, with two, three or four graphics cards in them, and you can water cool them and overclock to infinity, that didn't exist even six or seven years ago. You just bought one or maybe two graphics cards and then you were super enthusiastic. It's very difficult to compete with that. People have these massive nuclear power plants standing in their rooms that will run your games really fast. It's hard to compete with."

    If Yerli is right, Sony's presentation tomorrow may underwhelm some PC gamers who already own machines that outpace the future console.

    No $#@!, Crytek. Obviously PC's are technologically superior. I'm not sure why this is news, honestly.

    And the best PC rig will never match Pixar's rendering farm...

    I don't expect the next gen consoles to have the power or the latest and fastest rigs of today, it would be stupid to assume that, but I do know a lot more optimizations and TLC get put into consoles games like Uncharted, etc.

    As obvious as that may seem, there were a whole ton of PS3 fanboys that were absolutely convinced that the PS3 would not only surpass the best of gaming PCs, but would be a supercomputer. They screamed at the top of their lungs TWO TERAFLOPS OF POWER, and CELL IS MORE ADVANCED THAN A PC CPU!!!

    So as obvious as it is to you or me, there are a large number of people who do need to be reminded that a console is nothing more than a stripped down budget gaming system.

    That's a bit disingenuous, they are obviously more than just a stripped down gaming system. Just in a different way

    I don't see it as a stripped down budget gaming system, I see it as an highly optimized reasonably priced gaming system!

    Is it just me, or does Crytek like to be the Captain Obvious of the gaming industry?

    Next they'll be saying; "if you turn off your PC - it can't play games"!

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Have to disagree with you there. We don't even know if the gun is loaded.

    No way ps4 is SUPER POWER! Didn't you all feel the shockwaves yesterday when Sony's prototype was running those demos?

    Regardless I'm still gonna go with a playstation or any of the other consoles over a PC about 90% of the time.

    I hate weather forecasters in the game industry.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    A closed platform is insuperior to an open platform in terms of specs. No $#@!. So what?


    I just want to play good games, PC, PS3, whatever. This $#@! Crytec always goes on about is stupid and tiresome.

    Not to mention there are barely ANY games that take advantage of my PC fully, and never will we see heaps of games that are until consoles are on par. Why? Because people who make games make them for more systems than just PC so it sells.

    Yep. I could not give a sh^t less about anything they have to say... because they never say anything new except stating the obvious... as if it's something new and revolutionary.

    And its like they are constantly dismissing console owners and calling them stupid for not owning a PC.

    Even though the entire Crysis series in on PC PS3 X360...

    Consoles serve a very different purpose... so anything they have to say is quite irrelevant. And yes... apparently the console gamers do matter to them for sales otherwise they wouldn't port their game to consoles. They're incredibly condescending.

    CONSOLES THAT ARE UPDATED EVERY 5 TO 8 YEARS COULD NEVER MATCH PCS THAT ARE UPDATED EVERY 5 MINUTES!

    No sh^t. Groundbreaking and totally worthy of making an article about it.

    Not that he would know given how Crytek screwed PC gamers pretty hard with Crysis 2 lol.

    The consoles represent an amazing value and certain kind of tailored experience that PC's don't have. Conversely, PC's are far more flexible, powerful and open than consoles.

    But I'm not gonna hook my insanely expensive PC with no Blu-Ray drive out in my living room near my TV.
