Edge Magazine: ''The Witcher 3 will be a true next generation videogame as releasing the title on PS3 or 360 would compromise its ambition, CD Projekt has told us.''
I gotta agree with the guy though. On one and, cross gen is good because late adopters of next gen can enjoy new games on current gen consoles. But at what point will we start getting DEDICATED next gen games that don't happen to also be first party (I know, next gen isn't here yet, but the launch is looking to have many cross-gen games, as opposed to dedicated next gen (at least from 3rd parties))? Look at Watch Dogs, BF4, etc...I wonder if they will STILL do cross gen in their next sequels, or if they will use the full power of the next gen consoles (not just graphics, but RAM and computing power too). But then again, the current gen has millions of users between PS3, and Xbox 360. That's A LOT of money to be made also...
it has been 8 years since MS released the 360 and it's time to move on to the next gen. we need risk takerd for the next gen to really take off and it will be a sad state if not many devs push ahead and instead think about playing it safe by releasing on current gen hardwares! if you really want to make it multiplat, there's always pc so...go ahead and go PS4 and 720 + pc only this time around...no more holding back!
That's why your missing the point, CDPR is not all about the money. Every DLC even the massive Enhanced editions were free. They even gave out free copies on both Wither games on GOG.com
No, I think YOUR missing the point. I pointed out the case for AND against cross gen gaming from a business point of view. My comment is about ALL game devs in general, not just CDPR. Another day, another n4g "genius" who can't understand complex discussions.
Why waste time on last gen. hardware if you are trying to make a next gen. title of this magnitude? If some outside party wants to give it a shot let them scale it down but their (the developer) focus should remain on their vision.
Money plain and simple.
That's all good and dandy. But the pressure's now on CD Projekt. If the console version of The Witcher 3 doesn't look as good as the cross gen titles, then it'll be embarrassing and awkward.
Witcher 2 pretty much smoked everything when it was released and still smokes most games today so I'm pretty sure these guys will deliver. Can't wait for this, personally Witcher 2 was easily GOTY for me and was so much better than games like Skyrim.
Though I played Witcher 2 on my PC, which looks gorgeous, the 360 version was very good looking too I just wish PS3 gamers also got to experience this game! Witcher 2 was over shadowed by Skyrim which is undoubtedly the weaker of the two and the start of a decline for the Elder Scrolls series. Cant wait for Witcher 3
Well, it will be sort of interesting to see the side by side comparisons of the same games running on ps3 vs ps4.
Good point, we need only Next Gen games. My last PS3 games will be GTA V, Last of Us and Beyond , no more.
