Electronic Arts surprised us all a few weeks ago with news that Crytek's visually stunning 2007 PC release Crysis would be coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in October as a downloadable title. Now the publisher has confirmed a release date of October 4.
Yes, that's next week.
The game hits Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network one week from tomorrow, with a cost of 1,600 MS Points / $20. It faces some pretty stiff competition that day, particularly from Bethesda Softworks' Rage, but the more console-friendly control scheme and visuals should win at least a few fans over. If not, you can always hold off until 2012!
