Star Wars: Battlefront 3
Is This Definitive Proof?

It’s been six and a half long years since the release of Star Wars: Battlefront II.
I vividly recall how the box easily boasted that it was “the sequel to the best-selling Star Wars game of all time!”
Anyone and everyone who played it easily expected a third installment, inevitably a year later as II showed.
Nearly seven years later we know just about as much now as we did then. Through a long and troubled development, much of which is not common knowledge, Battlefront III has been in peril more than a few times.
Today, though, we have as close to definitive proof of the game as it’s going to get. (more…)

For years Crytek was wowing PC owners with incredible videos of tropical environments revealed to be Crysis running on the CryEngine 2. Despite mixed reviews when it was finally released, one thing was clear: Crysis was the most visually arresting game ever created. PC owners flocked to upgrade their graphics cards and processors to run the technical showpiece, but little word was heard of the possibility of running the engine on a console. (Except for the fact OXCGN had spotted it running on 360′s some time ago in an earlier form)
Finally just as OXCGN predicted – Cryteck on consoles . . .
