Crytek's next platform... PSP?

Job ad reveals Crysis developer's handheld intentions

Far Cry developer Crytek is famous for setting the graphical standard of the generation with its stupidly gorgeous Cry Engine 2, which powers its icy jungle FPS Crysis.

We're sure you'll be a bit surprised to see a job ad on its official website then, advertising for a PSP programmer to work in its Budapest office. We don't think they're going to get high-dynamic range lighting working on that machine...

The developer recently stated that all of its future projects after upcoming Crysis Warhead will be multi-platform, after staying PC exclusive for the entirety of its existence.

If the PSP ad is actually relevant to what its working on (and not just some sort of technology experiment at Crytek's HQ), then the obvious guess would be that the developer's perhaps planning a spin-off of its shooter series for PSP - we can't see them getting the proper FPS working on PSP somehow.

We'll of course give you a nudge when an explanation breaks out.
