He's probably saying that because EA told him to.
CryENGINE 2 is very scalable, and you can adjust it very well. If the minimum settings for the game can be a single-core CPU and a mid-range graphics card, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are more than capable enough to run Crysis.
Anyways, supposedly FarCry 2 is in the works.
It's going to be multiplatformed, which means the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 will have it. No word on the Wii, but I doubt it. I've seen some tech demo videos on GameTrailers.com though...and I must say that the shaders and CryENGINE 2 is AMAZING. The lighting is very nice and it's just so neat.
