Recently we heard rumors that an extended version of the visually-impressive Crysis would be coming exclusively to the PS3. Although those rumors remain unconfirmed, Crytek has announced the technology behind Crysis, CryEngine 2, is indeed being developed for other platforms including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The company will show off its cutting-edge CryEngine 2 on Xbox 360 and PS3 to ‘a select audience’ for the first time at this February’s Game Developer's Conference 2008 in San Francisco. Though this is far from confirmation that console versions are inbound, it should at least combat the belief that the engine only performs well on high-end machines. With this in mind, Crytek also said they would be hosting a presentation detailing how it is possible to build a $600 rig that can handle the “fully optimized” Crysis.
