Crytek wary about Cloud-Gaming:
Quote:Carl Jones, director of global business development at Crytek, has said that predictions of a gaming future based in the cloud are unlikely to come to fruition until ISPs make improvements to network infrastructure.
And lastly: Crytek on what game engines will look like in 2015.
Quote:"2015 is a long time in terms of hardware advances," notes Carl Jones, Crytek's director of global business development. "The sheer processing power that we're going to have at our fingertips will be immense, and the parallel power of the GPU opens up new rendering techniques to us that we haven't really been able to use in realtime before. By using a combination of them, you're going to get much more realism in areas where we don't have it holistically yet.
"If you look at LA Noire you see amazing character faces because they've gone for a bespoke solution for those faces. But the power isn't there to match that quality in the environments and such. In the future you'll be able to do the same quality for everything, so you won't get that 'texture shock' of some things looking high quality and others not. Anything you see now in movies, you'll be able to see in realtime by 2015."
