You know when a joke goes too far that it becomes simply offensive?
Here’s an example of that. Imagine paying hundreds of dollars to buy an expensive gaming rig and expecting something to work only to be told to buy something else instead.
Crysis 3 beta just came out today, and some PC players have been having troubles running the game on SLI.
A gamer was not able to get SLI to work and asked what to do on the MyCrysis forums: ”Haven’t been able to get SLI working. Running dual 660 Ti. Got the beta drivers installed, added the beta game to the list, SLI is checked, r_multigpu is set to 2…What do?”
A Crytek employee responded by posting, “Buy a 360?”. He later retracted his comment by saying it was a “joke”, but it just kind of feels really unprofessional to post something like that.
People were understandably pissed off at the reply.
“Seriously ?! such as nice support!! trolling about Crytek problem. We won’t replace our hardware because you have broken game engine, fix it!”
People can interpret the comment in different ways and some may find it genuinely funny. What are your thoughts on this?
