Crysis 3 pre-orders get Crysis for free

Postby billysastard » 01 Nov 2012, 22:01

so free if you pay full retail at GAME or a download you can still buy on xbla if you pay £10 or more less anywhere else.

This is good news- although dated looking by today's standards, I really enjoyed the original Crysis
:D

Gah! I have it on PC and XBLA. Damn.

I was never that into it on PC. But when Crytek updated the Nano-suit controls to match Crysis 2, it became a much more organic experience and really shone. Hopefully an XBLA version of Warhead appears and those who already own Crysis get a bonus too. Hopefully.

Fully agree, it doesn't make much sense and comes across more as an empty PR gesture than anything worthwhile. Most people who are interested would most likely have bought the first (and best) game by now anyway. Crytek should have slapped it on a disc and put Warhead on a disc too.

You'd have to be a really miserable b*stard to complain at that. Good job there are lots around these parts.

So the millions of the Crysis series fans that already have Crysis 1 have no incentive.

Wouldn't it make sense to offer to pick one from a selection of games? A lot of people interested in Crysis 3 probably already own Crysis 1, they're pre-existing Crysis fans after all.

Way to not reward the long term fans.

Why would Crysis fans need an incentive? If you're a fan then you'll buy Crysis 3 anyway.

This incentive is for people new to Crysis, it gives the people that only buy games if there's a number on the end the chance to see how the series started out.

Ah good ol' maccie d's would seal the deal for some (the kind of er, "person" who isn't old enough the buy the game in the first place, but would get mommy and daddy to pay for it). "Mcdonalds...I'm thuggin' it."

I resent that remark, I'm not miserable, just misunderstood.

According to Eurogamer this incentive is exclusive to GAME here in the UK which honestly doesn't come as much of a surprise to me:
