PS3 Already Old News

Crytek is a relatively new comer to the game industry. They put out FarCry in 2004 which did very well for itself. Then at this last E3 they unveiled Crysis. This game is so graphically stunning it has won every graphics award in the industry. It truly is beautiful.

Yesterday Crytek announced that the game will be PC exclusive because the PS3 and Xbox 360 are NOT POWERFUL enough to run their engine. It's the normal pace of things that eventually consoles are out paced by PC graphics technology, but for consoles to lose ground so quickly is hilarious.

Today, the head of Sony's entertainment division said they will support the PS3 for the next 10 years, and the PS4 is more than 5 years away. He explains that their $600 price point represents a good value since the PS3 will be with you for all those years.

The PS3 will be available for 2 months before games will be released that it doesn't have the power to play. How is it going to be a viable gaming platform for 5+ years?

From everything I've read, I would wager very, very few gamers have a computer powerful enough to run Crysis on its highest settings. Chances are, if your PC doesn't say Alienware or XPS on it (and was purchased in the last 6 months), you won't be able to play this game with any bells and whistles. Luckily for me, FPS is my least favorite genre.
