Crysis 3 Announced

Following recent clues, EA officially announces Crysis 3, saying the next installment in Crytek's first-person shooter series is due in spring of next year for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. "Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. "Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game." Though still a year off, they already outline three early multiplayer unlocks you can earn by preordering the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition (though the link they provide doesn't lead anywhere yet) as well as additional perks like a nanosuit module and an XP boost. Like Crysis 2, the sequel is set in a future version of New York City, here are some screenshots, and here's word:

Players take on the role of ‘Prophet’ as he returns to New York, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.

What I saw with Crysis 2 was, "We have to make this run on consoles so let's block it in. Make it in the city." Lost its luster from that point.
You say that but look at games like Assassin's Creed and Far Cry 2 - huge worlds with minimal load times, all optimised for consoles (and PCs). I honestly think it was a design decision, not a technology constraint.

And personally, if it's not on Steam, it's an unlikely purchase... Not because I'm boycotting Origin... Simply because it's not enough of a hit for me to do the extra (although minimal) effort... Which I do for other games I want to play (Diablo 3, Guild War 2 both already pre-purchased).
I'm the same. I don't really have a problem with Origin but it doesn't offer the same value to me. The biggest problem is that I have virtually all my games on Steam and I hate having to manage multiple accounts. I have Starcraft II on but you wouldn't believe the number of times I've forgot my password, simply because they have lots of restrictions on which characters you can use. Same with websites - if it wasn't for Chrome auto-remembering and Facebook logins then I probably wouldn't both registering or visiting most sites.

Still, I've registered all of my EA games from Steam on Origin which has taken me up to 17 games - I've installed a few of them to try it out but I wasn't impressed with how the Origin client works.
