Crysis 2 "will be the first major video game on multiple platforms to take full advantage of true stereoscopic 3D," according to an EA news release. Until now, we've assumed the PlayStation 3 is the only current-generation console capable of 3D gaming since it supports a newer HDMI specification.

If EA is correct, why didn't Microsoft announce such a thing at the company's news conference this morning? Sony has certainly been riding the 3D bandwagon, so a Microsoft counter-attack wouldn't be out of the question.

The original Crysis took advantage of the horsepower-demanding proprietary CryEngine and it impressed gamers and critics alike with its over-the-top physics and other technical achievements. Crysis 2 will use the updated CryEngine 3 and drop gamers into a war-torn New York City amid an alien invasion. Available in either 2D or 3D, Crysis 2 will hit stores for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on February 22, 2011.
