Thats awesome. Crysis 2 is both 360 and PS3 exclusive in terms of development. 2 different teams pushing the boxes to the max.
Now noone here in this forum can say Crysis 2 can never be the best graphics because it's multiplat.
If anyone was trying hard to get more out of 360 or PS3 I would hope it was Crytek.
If I'm not mistaken, there was no lead platform for Modern Warfare 2 either. So no, I still think we will see better looking games than Crysis 2 on both PS3 and Xbox 360.
Modern Warfare 2 was lead on PC. 360 and PS3 were ports.
Crysis 2 is the first multiplat title where inhouse developers are actually trying to make their console version noticeably better than the other. One week you can see the PS3 dev team laughing " see the cell ". The next week you can see the 360 dev team saying " fools, you fools. Forget the Sony hype look what we can do " etc etc.
I would love to be a fly on the wall. Specialized teams for both consoles with the most talented graphics guys in the world.
Modern Warfare 2 was not a port, in any direction.
It was once rumored to be PS3 lead, but that was quickly shot down. All individual teams, all simultaneous development (not ports).
And the bottomline regarding Crysis 2, although it is running on an engine specifically designed to utilize whatever hardware it's on, I can't see it taking advantage of the PS3 like Uncharted 2, God of War III, or Killzone 2 did, just as I can't see it taking advantage of the 360 like ALAN WAKE, Gears of War 2, or Halo: Reach will/did.
I don't doubt their talent and hard work, but this being their first console game, they have some big shoes to fill.
