Previously, Crytek had talked about next generation consoles, and they pulling out an outrageous demand, asking a minimum of 8GB of RAM running on the machines to satisfy the graphical needs. Now, we learn another one.
In a PowerPoint presentation, that had revealed in details of their revolutionary game engine, the CryENGINE. For instance, they claimed that the engine would be bigger, better and faster where you are looking at something that could re-imagined Avatar’s graphic kind of quality.
Here’s the catch though, they said that it need “insane amount” of GPU by exclaiming four times of Nvidia GeForce GTX 590. For the record, each of them cost around $600 to $900 according to a quick Google price search.
So with that, and other material costs such as the processor, and other technological-licensed devices, you are definitely looking more than $2000 to make Crytek’s dream a reality.
Of course, by the time that either PS4 and Xbox 720 has been released, the price of these stuff will be dropped.
But then again, considering what they asked in a system, that’s still a reasonable price point to go for.
