    The follow-up to the game with the most ridiculous PC system requirements in recent memory will support technology that almost no-one has or wants to make room to afford. As announced during the EA's E3 2010 press conference, all three versions of Crysis 2 will support stereoscopic 3D. 

    No Caption Provided
    == TEASER == “At Crytek, we always strive to raise the technology bar.  As the 3D revolution sweeps movies and television, we are excited to bring Crysis 2 to 3D, making it the first big action game to be available in true stereoscopic 3D,” Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement. “The 3D experience represents a quantum leap in interactive entertainment. With all of the same story and action seen in the 2D version of the game, the 3D version adds another dimension of intensity and immersion to the action.”

    Crytek showed a special 3D cinematic scene of the game to press during the briefing, which followed a solid seven or eight minutes of combat footage set in the middle of a broken Grand Central Station. There was a big robot, the usual nanosuit silliness, explosions, and even a Hummer escape.

    Not interested in 3D. Maybe when when monitors and tv's are stanardized with 3D I'll get into it. Now it seems like a gimmick.

    Hang on, how expensive is the 3D technology going to need to be to get it to work at full capacity with a Crysis game? I just hope they don't lie to me like they did in the opening cut scene of the original Crysis, bullet deflection my foot.

    Will Crysis 2 for PC look better than Crysis 1?  Or will it be the same as the console versions, only higher res?

    So will the console versions be even lower resolution now? Or will they further reduce the visual quality?
     
    Would be nice if there were only quality reductions if you chose to run in 3D mode.

    To be honest I'm just waiting for this 3Dmania to all go away so developers can go back spending time on the more important things....like making games good.

    anyone here remember how lame the frame rates were for the first one even if you had a top of the line rig when crysis came out? i do. i built a rig specifically for that game. I won't be making the same mistake again.

    Crysis 2 actually seems like a fairly natural fit for going 3D. I'm intrigued, at least.

    Getting really tired of this 3D fad. However, seeing the game on consoles has only reinforced that the PC version seems better (assuming that some of the footage that's been shown earlier has been PC, because there's been some serious fidelity differences between demo's).

    They better not be skimping on some visuals to compensate for the increased load by rendering two stereoscopic images, maybe it'll just scale down the visuals for 3d mode.
     
    Thought Crytek would be able to see past the gimmick that is 3D, especially since they claim to "push the boundaries", which they have done in the past, but 3d atm really is just a gimmick. Until glasses-free 3d is achieved, it will never penetrate the mass market.

    Prepare to have the price of games increased. Developing and testing and debugging and supporting the 3D element of games isn't free and will add significantly to the cost of creating games. We'll all get the obligation of subsidizing the 3D experience for the handful of douchebags that get juiced up all over that kind of shit.

    It's because of people like me, people that actually want this. I have a 3D capable PC, and I can run the hell out of Crysis in 3D and my PC is worth less than a grand (I built it myself so the PC was half the price of buying a comparable alienware).
