THE BUZZ: Crytek has announced that it is bringing a modified version of Crysis to the Xbox Live Arcade and PSN later this year.

The game will be available to download next month, priced at 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360 and $19.99 on PlayStation 3.  The downloadable version will be remastered via the CryEngine3, with new lighting effects and Nanosuit optimizations.

“We are extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish with Crysis,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek.  “We set out to create a next-generation FPS and delivered a PC experience that became a benchmark for quality – and still is for many gamers even four years later.”

“By bringing the single-player campaign to console, we believe we are again setting a new standard for quality in downloadable gaming.”

EGM’s TAKE: I’m sure that Crytek and EA are hoping that the original Crysis can obtain the same critical acclaim and sales on consoles that its sequel did earlier this year.  A $20 price point will go a long way towards achieving this target.
