No doubt Crysis is definitely the killer app for PC gamers looking to upgrade their systems and so far news coming from people who are playing the multiplayer beta is that it will be worth it. And remember, the minimum specs are the bare “minimum” one will require to play the game and that means all the settings will have to be toned down and you will not be able to enjoy the game the way it is meant to be. So I would advise anyone upgrading their computers go for the recommended requirements or at least get as close to it as possible.

Crysis is set to be released on November 16th, 2007 worldwide and the demo is expected as soon as October 26th.

    And to folks who want to wait for the console version, the developers have implied that the console version won’t happen if the PC version doesn’t sell.

    i grew up a huge pc gamer, an for RTS and a few other genres, it still has no comparison. however, im pretty much done upgrading. the last time i bought a computer, i pretty much blew 1500 for a pretty loaded system right before PCI-E was introduced. it was great, but was already mid to low range in about 2 years. for that kind of cash, i could get a console and about 20 games (even the P$3!) for me, ill continue to get good computer games a few years after there released when i can run them on a cheap system, or wait for the console port even if it has worse graphics.

    I personally think this game is out of the range of “not selling”. Many of my fellow PC enthusiasts have basically waited for the minimum specs to be revealed to upgrade their computers to play this game. The game has too much hype to it and it does look and play great from what I heard from people who played the MP beta. So, I expect sales to be pretty good and definitely better than Far Cry.

    Well, as I mentioned earlier in Podcast number 10, my specs are a bit above minimum, but I was still having texture drops. I figured it was a video memory issue, but it happened at low detail as well. I have dual 7800GT cards that are factory overclocked. Also 2GB of RAM and a dual core 4800+ X2 chip.

  • Joe –

    And this is why PC games are not growing their market, and are instead getting by making the existing users pay more.
