Crytek's Crysis Too Much For Next Gen Consoles

Crysis the highly anticipated shooter from Crytek, might not be able to run in all of its graphical glory on the XBox 360 and Playstation 3. Both next generation consoles lack the ability to render certain effects made possible by Microsoft's DirectX 10, which will be made available with Windows Vista.

"Although Crysis will support both current and the next version of DirectX, Crytek claims that only DirectX 10 allows the game to run as it was intended by the developers because the next-generation DirectX API, which will ship along with Windows Vista, allows more effects and more objects to be drawn on the screen with a smaller computational cost for the hardware.
