So those who are still interested have to BUY autodownloader. Is this a stand-alone application anyway?

This was just the announcement - we will reveal more and more information within the upcoming weeks and months.

So please don't try to talk only negative about something you don't know about yet. :)

This is fantastic news, especially (IMO) the news that MP is to be expanded, can I assume we will see some of the new SP weapons turn up in MP?

Oh and thanks as usual Alex, I expect you'll all be celebrating in the Jade club tonight ;)

Wow, "sooner than you might think", indeed. ;)

Guys,get over it,it's probably just Crysis with more content and multiplayer mods for the consoles,why else should they hire doozens of console programmers and even show CryEngine 2 running on the next-gen consoles to journalists about a year ago?

Epic FAIL

Huge success :)

Woo, this looks good. And now the hardware is starting to come out that can run crysis almost on full (GTX 280), this should be good,

What would be interesting is if they enabled support for the physics software that supposed to be built into the 8, and 9 series, now nvidia has bought ageia. Also, Psycho was my favourite character so yeh! :D
