Crytek on PCs versus Consoles

Computer and Video Games hears from Crytek boss Cervat Yerli, who points out something the PC gamers are well aware of, that the current console generation is holding back games from taking advantage of the greater capabilities of current gaming PCs. "PC is easily a generation ahead right now. With 360 and PS3, we believe the quality of the games beyond Crysis 2 and other CryEngine developments will be pretty much limited to what their creative expressions is, what the content is. You won't be able to squeeze more juice from these rocks," he tells them. "I generally think it's still developers' mentality [to blame]. A lot nowadays don't consider PC a big issue any more; their [sales] expectations are nowhere near what they are for the console versions. Until the PC market creates comparable revenues, companies are not going to spend enough on the PC SKU of a game." Thanks joao.

There's a dearth of 1080p titles available for either of the consoles. The extremely high fidelity games like Uncharted are stuck at 720p (I think Uncharted 1 will do 1080i, but that's as close as you get.) The consoles simply can't push that many pixels on games with a lot of detailed stuff on-screen. Even BlazBlue and Street Fighter 4 are stuck at 720p on the consoles (although both of those are a little deceptive because they're fighting games; they actually cram a lot of detail in.) The only 1080p console game I can actually think of off the top of my head is Wipeout HD.

All the CoD games from Modern Warfare to Black Ops actually run below 720p and get stretched to fill the extra space, forget 1080p. Which is probably the biggest reason the PC versions look strikingly better despite no real effort put into the PC graphics.

It's at the point where I'll gladly wait for delayed PC ports of just about any game solely so I can crank the resolution up. I would kill for PC versions of Uncharted and inFAMOUS just for this, the jaggies at 720p on a good-sized screen are awful. Going from the console to the PC version of SF4 was like looking at a whole new game.
