Crysis Astonishes with 1080p Resolution Support on PS3

September 27, 2011 Written by Jonathan Leack

A few years back many thought that it’d be impossible for Crysis to ever be playable on a current-generation console, let alone in 1080p. It appears that the PS3 will have the last laugh as Franziska Lehnert, PR Manager at Crytek, has revealed the unexpected during an interview with NowGamer: Crysis PS3 will support both 720p and 1080p.

Preliminary screenshots have been nothing short of impressive, and if no major technical issues are present, this download-only version of the title could end up being one of the best-looking titles in the entire PS3 library. It’s rare to see a game with 1080p support due to how taxing it is on hardware, let alone a game of Crysis‘ stature. Don’t let its age affect your expectation level either, as its high texture detail, advanced visual technique, and beautiful environment have made it a benchmark of choice for gaming PCs for nearly four years.

Crysis is scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation Store during next week’s update on October 4th.
