    Where can I preorder it?:D

    No matter if it ends up as a good game or not, I'll have to reward them with buying it just for the fact that they wont release it on consoles.

    Ooh... more escort missions... like when Psycho escorts that little Asian CIA lassie while you go... do whatever it was you were supposed to be doing at that point. Getting to the Korean base or something, wasn't it?

    Warhead will be a PC exclusive title - thank goodness.

    I'm with the above poster, I'll buy this either way just because of that. I liked the original, far from perfect and incredibly boring during the alien mothership stage and beyond. Thankfully we're assured there'll be none of that crap now seeing as Psycho stayed far away from that place..

    Then you'd better hire someone who can tell a story.

    Sweet. My support for them continues, especially with PC exclusivity.

    I say this every time I read about this series, but I feel it can never be said enough: There better not be any damn aliens!

    I'd rather it be a PC game than a console and believe they made a good choice, but console games are fine and long as they have a pc counterpart.

    Reason why the pc is better than consoles:
    You can always upgrade my pc
    You can do more activities on a pc:naughty:
    You can mod the game on a pc:dremel:
    You don't have to pay for parts to cheat on a game that doesn't have cheats (go trainers)

    Downsides:
    Cost:wallbash:

    I'm looking forward to it. I enjoyed Crysis (well apart from inside the alien world), should be good. :)

    Fail. Total, epic fail. The same weird storyline from the point of view of the most annoying character, but this time you won't be there when any of the really heavy **** goes down. Wonderful. I can't wait for the level where you fly around the mountain waiting for the old main character to come out. Oh! Or the level where you fly around the boat in the hoverplane thing watching that same guy defeat the giant alien robot. "New Multiplayer content," eh? I wonder if it will be any more playable than the old multiplayer content.

    Can you guys explain to me why you'll be supporting them just because it's PC-exclusive (for now)? That doesn't make any damn sense to me.

    Well this is a letdown, refine your storytelling?

    It doesn't matter how much you polish a turd your still holding a lump of crap.

    I don't care about it being PC-exclusive, but it being native to the platform is key to just about every good shooter (Gears has generally been an exception, though I haven't played the PC version to see how the controls translated from the 360). If they want to port it to consoles, that's their business - doesn't stop me getting the PC version.

    This sounds like it may provide the opportunity to focus more on killing people and less on aliens. Which is bad out of context but great for the game. I'll reserve judgment until release, or at least until we have more deatils.

    However I really hope they don't charge the normal full price on it. I won't get into my usual spiel about the economics of download-based distribution and all of that, but will leave it at there being even fewer people that would want to buy the same game of Crysis through a different POV at full price unless they REALLY add in something compelling (and a couple of guns won't do it). $20 and I'm in, $25-30 if it gets very solid reviews. And I'm going to end up downloading it in some form or another, so please let me pay you to do it (the only thing I hate more than retail shopping is having to deal with discs; I may order from Amazon and download from Sweden if that's the easiest download option).

    Come on, Crysis story was as good as most any other big name shooter not called Half life 2. The gameplay was excellent, people don't play shooters for stories, that's what RPG's like The Witcher and Mass Effect are for.

    LOL, many actually loved the ga,e crysis, and ane xpansion showing psycho's story sounds interesting to many. Your opinion is not everyones. I will buy this for sure. If yuo were a true PC gamer, you would know, obviously you are not. How do yuo know what happens when psycho is doing his thing, make assumptions much? Geez. do people always whine and talk SB before a product is even out the door? hell, we don't even have any info yet and your already whining.
