EA announced that it is closing the PS3 beta for Crysis 2 in order to address multiple issues that players have had with the game. Many, but not all players experienced significant lag issues while playing. EA promised on the official Crysis forums that all issues will be addressed and that a workable version of the beta will be available next week.

The company’s full statement on the official Crysis 2 site reads: "Though many gamers have had a great experience playing the demo, we are aware that others have been experiencing server connection delays. We've identified the root cause and have decided to close the PS3 demo in the next 24 hours to ensure all issues are resolved when the game launches next week. Our priority is to ensure that the final product is flawless at launch."

Developer CryTek promises that the final product will not differ greatly from the 360 version.
