very nice. The PDF is brilliant showing how much work they have actually put into it to make it very realistic. Well Done :)

It does look good, although I disagree with the statement of best looking game on console... I had baught a 42" full HD TV after I got Crysis 2, and to be honest it really doesnt look that good, I found Bulletstorm to look better than Crysis 2, and a whole bunch of mates to agree... I think the PC version may be beter though.

May have missed it, but had a quick read and didn't see anything in that doc about view optimization. I remember an old thread on InCrysis which stated that there were no occluders in Crysis 2? It never got properly answered.

Sounds like it would have been a nice performance boost if it were in. Wondered if this was done due to console hardware issues/no performance gain... or was just usual Internet lies.

So are we going to be able to also play these on our PS3s and 360s? Remember this engine features real-time across all platforms? Someone pleez answer.

The CryEngine 3 development happens on a Windows PC mainly, but you can have a PS3 and Xbox plugged in during development to see how things work in real time. When you are done developing, you can compile final versions of the game and levels for any or all of the 3 platforms. The final versions only work on one platform each, since the processors, OS, and graphics hardware are different on each.
