CryEngine3 vs CryEngine2 – fight!

N4G (News4Gamers) has a piece up linking to a youtube video comparing CryEngine3 for X360 and PS3 to CryEngine2 for PC. I’ll embed the video here as well.

It’s a nice video but I’m trying to figure out why someone would bother doing a comparison like this when CryEngine3 is still a fair distance from being released…? Apparently there have been a lot of arguments about the visual fidelity comparison on various websites. Well, you can check it out for yourself. I personally don’t think anyone should be particularly surprised if a non-final version of a piece of software designed for multiple hardware platforms doesn’t look quite as good as an optimized release for a single platform.
