CD Projekt RED has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will look and play the same across all platforms i.e The Witcher 3 will not have visual and graphics cutbacks on PS4 and Xbox One relative to PC.
Good :D The Witcher 3 looks like a great game coming out for everybody.q
One of my most anticipated next gen games.....can't wait
Well thats just dumb witcher 2 you needed a really good pc to max it out. Now its being dumbed down like cysis for console thats just sucks. Well i can call this now this game wont push pc's at all no reason to upgrade at all. At this rate i wont have to upgrade my pc at all this year no game is going to push it because of the console versions. Lets see what Bf4 can do later in the year maybe that game can make me upgrade. They better not cenosor the game on pc just so it can be sold on console. There is alot of sex in the witcher games way more graphic than what console does.
I highly doubt it's being dumbed down for next gen consoles. If you remember it's not coming to PS3 or 360. I wish definition of visual cutbacks would be better explained.
@awi5951 If you interested in sex there is whole area of the internet focused on that. You could try finding a real woman/man? Or if you are some sort of unsightly, jibbering, hunchback you could get a hooker for less then the cost to upgrade your graphics card. The graphics quality, resolution and fps on real life are amazing even on low settings.
@pkb79 LOL Ive had more women than you can ever dream of hell i was married before lol. Kids today always talking out their backside lol. Hell i bet the women that i've nailed from one race is more than all of yours combined lol. Especially the Japanese chicks they love my big ching ching lol.
Why can't anyone be interested in sex without people like you thinking it means they're sex-starved pervs? Religion much?
@inveni0 Yeah inveni0 man these kids today dont have any sense. I like R rated movies too doesnt mean i watch them for the sex scenes. I dont like all this disneyfied crap that video games are regulated too. If a game wants to put in the same content as a Rated R movie congress and parents group come out and try to ban it. I want video games to have the same respect as movies and they dont have it they have to censor themselves all the time. The witcher games are the one games that dont give a crap with the parents groups have to say. If they want to put a love scene in a game they will do it the same way a rate R movie would and i love them for it. Because they dont back down from the dumb asses that think games are just for kids.
I played Witcher 2 on my PC and it's a beautiful game at max settings. That said, it was clearly made for a controller so I'll probably end up getting W3 on my PS4 even though I still have my gaming PC.
I'm not sure if I'll get it for PS4 or PC. I would need to upgrade my old graphics card if I want it to look good. Well I got time to decide.
I played Witcher 2 on PC with a controller so i don't see the point of that argument giving that controller support is a standard in these days i don't see how Witcher 3 will be any different, now on topic, maybe the game wont have a visual cutback as in graphics but i'm willing to bet it will in the performance i highly doubt the game will run at [email protected] on the consoles, i really hope they aren't holding PC gaming back again because of consoles, it will be a shame if they do that in the beginning of a new gen after all is no secret PC gaming is already more powerful than next-gen consoles and with the new GPU series coming out 700 series and 8000 series i think by next year PC gaming will be far ahead of the consoles again.
I played W2 on my PC with a controller as well. My point is that it will have native controller support on PS4 and perhaps even some implementation of the touch pad.
I have no idea why you're being disagreed with so much considering how right you are about controller support by PC devs (not modders), that consoles wont run at [email protected] and the hoping the PC versions of games are still the forfront of graphical abilities for games. But whether or not these things happen, I know that the beautiful series will deliver once again.
How is the gameplay in the witcher 2? I haven't had a chance to play them so witcher 3 will be my first. Also is it possible to make your character magic focused?
Yeah, the three "schools" of focus are Alchemy, Signs, and Swordplay. Swordplay is...well, duh. Alchemy covers making your own potions (which can temporarily improve stats) but also covers items like bombs and traps, which can be very handy in combat. Signs covers magic, and although you have a somewhat limited pool of spells, they all have their purposes. It's almost impossible to NOT use swordplay sooner or later, but you can lean more towards magic, alchemy, a balance, or just toward swords. It's up to you. And the gameplay in W2 is great. Get it on PC if you can because it has free mods but the 360 version is also good.
Thanks for the info dedicatedtogamers its appreciated
If you have a gaming PC download Steam and check it over the next couple of weeks. When their summer sale shows up you can probably get both Witcher 1, and Witcher 2 for cheap. http://www.steampowered.com
You can play Witcher 2 on PC easily enough with a 360 controller. It works quite well. You're "native" argument is pretty questionable as well. It's not like you have to individual map each button manually. Activate a controller and it works perfectly with no issues and no extra work.
Clearly made for controller? Dont make me laugh.
this game will blow our minds http://abload.de/img/untitl...
I'm happy the whole gaming community will get to enjoy CD Projekt rpgs on their platform/console of choice
For a game this big to not have to be downscaled at all from the PC is too exciting. Mainly because this is only the first wave of games...it's going to be a good gen.
The first game Im buying for my Quad :-)
Can't wait to play this with Nvidia GTX 770 4GB SLI setup and the new Intel i7 Haswell architecture overclocked to 4.6 GHz ^_^
After playing w2 this is a day 1. I will have to wait for reviews to see which version I will get.
Great news to PC and Xb1/PS4 owners. Love the first two games on PC.
Music to my ears.....how it should be!
As someone who will most likely get the PC version I am not sure if I should view this as a good or bad thing.
So there you have it guys, these guys must be too lazy or not talented enough to make the ps4 version vastly superior. The average gamer does not look at the trees and say well this tree has more bark detail compared to this other one, or that building 5 miles away is all perfectly textured, nobody gives a crap about that stuff, they just want a fun experience and thats what matters, graphics come second.
"nobody gives a crap" *sigh* This stupid planet...
They state "will not have visual cutbacks on PS4/XB1 RELATIVE TO PC" So there is potential they could have a little extra on the PS4 compared to XB1, but I wouldn't expect to much more. Framerate is only thing I am betting is better for PS4/PC. This could be last Witcher game so its likely they want all three platforms to share it's graphical finesse.
"we’re developing The Witcher 3 on next gen platforms so visual cutbacks will not be the case here." oh so they're developing the game on already outdated hardware so that the games true beauty will not be realized? No, I wish they did what they did for witcher 2 and make sure the PC version was developed first, and was developed to be the best, then ported it to consoles. if the game doesn't require downscaling after being developed on cheap 400 dollar hardware that is already outdated vastly by top of the line PC hardware, then there is extreme cause for alarm. it shows they aren't pushing the visuals as much as they could, all thanks to consoles Also I really feel they are blowing smoke with that comment. You mean to tell me the console version will perform at a framerate above 60 fps and a resolution of 1080p or above? with all the bells and whistles of the PC version? On 400-500 dollar hardware? That is preposterous
YOU'RE PREPOSTEROUS! *starts crying*
Sorry to say, but you clearly dont understand hardware. Ps4 does have older hardware, but its dedicated to gaming!! Just wait for Uncharted 4 on ps4, and no pc game will come close for a while. Like 2 years or so. For 400$ you get something that will even beat high end pc's at its early stages, since developers would rather make games on a console, is a win for me! Ye sure Crytek will bring out something like Crysis 4 on pc at a later stage, that not even the Titan would be able to max! Who cares if consoles are outdated? They still deliver the best games! Back to playing Dota 2 on pc.... Only game better than all other, but it aint looking as good as Crysis 3 or something. Graphics dont make games, Its not a hot girl youre looking at, its textures and polygons or whatever. Look at it in another way. Would you choose a hot super model girl, who is dumb and bitchy and only good to fuck (high end pc's having the power, but never delivers like it should, or you need to upgrade every second day and it costs like 700$ for a decent rig).... Or would you choose a good looking (not perfect, but still beautiful) girl with a great heart, who is both good in bed and as a soulmate? (Consoles delivering great games, and you dont have to upgrade every second day, and if you look at uncharted 1 vs uncharted 3 in terms of visuals, its like a generation leap and its still on the same hardware!!!! Was just kidding with the girl thing, just wanted to let your mind wonder for a while! And for the record, id choose the good looking girl with soulmate aspects, cause in the end she will be the most beautiful to you! That said, i choose console gaming over pc gaming. Not because i cant afford pc, its just not as good investment and the games are not as good. Half life might be one of the best, but Crysis is one of the worst... The gaming society is funny with all the fanboys. Guess im one too, just sad to see pc gamers always blaming consoles. Go study computer software gaming thingy and makes your games just for pc with epic graphics!! You wont change the gaming world and you wont kill consoles! Good luck making a lot of money with your high end pc graphics!
"Just wait for Uncharted 4 on ps4, and no pc game will come close for a while. Like 2 years or so." LOL!
that analogy was completely idiotic, and you sound like a 14 year old rambling on about bewbies and sex reform your argument without all that unnecessary, childish dribble then get back to me also, it would appear you are the person who doesn't understand hardware
You're right about one thing: PC gaming won't kill consoles. All the PC did is provide the necessary hardware for next gen and PC gamers helped the developers to fine tune their DX11 skills before the consoles are out. Consoles and PC exist thanks to each other. It's the mobile devices, smartphones and tablets, that are threatening the consoles. Mobiles already made PC sales look sad so next gen consoles are in for a rough ride.
@Somebody Mobile itself will never live up to Consoles or PCs. Its always 2 years behind tech wise. Only thing that can bridge that gap would be cloud technology, but that lacks bandwidth required. Mobile's maximum GPU power is 76 Gigaflops I believe with Tegra 4. Last gen consoles could do 300-400 Gigaflops fine well the PS3/X360 did anyway. There is a big gap there. Noone calculates PC sales accurately. Games are never tracked digitally sales wise anyway. NPD is trying to do that in the next year or so. If you did it globally it would surpass 170 Million potential gamer consumers for Hardware sales. PC gaming itself has not even spread to all corners of the globe. There are more people in the world than just AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel. Gaming in many countries is in its early years. Russia and India are surging up in the past year or so. PC gaming in US would grow if it had someone backing it. Microsoft is not doing it. Valve is looking to steal that badge with its Linux based console/PC box. Cloud gaming is the only real threat to gaming platforms. Bandwidth for it simply isn't here yet. Although with the Cloud you can utilize it anywhere. Phone, PC, Console, tablet, portable console, and so on.
Trolls abound. Get a life.
Implying the majority of PC gamers are playing on systems vastly superior to the next gen systems. lol okay I wonder why devs bother spending so much time on med-low spec optimization when everyone has a system that is capable of blowing the PS4/X1 out of the water
It's called optimization. Remember when the Battlefield 4 reveal gameplay needed a HD 7990? That's well over the power of the PS4/Xbox One yet it'll run at 1080p60fps on those consoles as well.
just PR talk. I'm sure PC version will have settings consoles can't handle, and I'm very sure PC version will support 1440p or 1600p or above.
What does it matter? You're going to twist what any developer says to suit your own limited view on the subject anyway. As so many others do.
Whoa that's great to hear! I loved Witcher 2 and can't wait to play Witcher 3, not sure if on PC or PS4 yet though lol.
Good to hear.....this game looks incredible.... Go Poland!!!
there's no decision to be made. I have a gaming PC and will have a PS4. Along with Battlefield 4 and Watch Dogs, the Witcher 3 will go to PC. However... it's good to know they have high hopes and production for the console versions
I'm just not a fan of the western style RPGs, Still looked impressive especially for an open world game!
getting this day one on my PC... least bother how the graphics and visuals will look on PS4 and Xbox One
instead of getting ps4 or xbox one.. i will be preparing my PC for this one.. just tell me pc system specification (maximum)....
PS4 is my lead gaming platform. So PS4 version for me!
bull shit it won't have the same anti aliasing, not support nearly as high of resolutions the draw distance will be lessened, the framerate will be worse, the shadows will be less vivid I 100% guarantee the pc version will absolutely STOMP the console versions what are they going to say? interviewer-"Will the game look any different on different platforms or you’re aiming to make it look the same? " cd project guy- (laughs) "what are you, high? The pc version is going to destroy the console versions, we cannot even get the game to run anywhere near 1080p, we're going to have to chop the resolution down to 1643x872....and even then, we have to drop anti aliasing down to a measly 2x, and that's just to get it to run at a lousy 30 frames, on pc, even a low tier gtx 550 ti runs it better...man you journalists are morons!" is that the answer you want, no, so he gives you the lies that you need.
The two main factors for me are 60fps and 3D support. Witcher 2 was among the best Nvidia 3D supported game. My first playthrought I didn't use 3D but was getting a lovely stable 68fps. On my 3rd playthrought I played it in 3D and loved it. It's something that next gen consoles will not be able to offer me. Also don't get me started on MODS. Witcher 3 will be open world I can't even image what kind of mods there will be coming out for it
I dont have a gaming PC so this is good news to me.
but but but what about the powah of tha high end pcs that every pc elitist here is bragging about? hmmm just spending extra money on the more powerful hardware that remains unused and at best 20% better graphics than consoles i game on pc since 90s dont tell me the difference between pc and consoles are day and night sure you have more power with pc but so what? no developer uses that extra power until consoles allow
@micro ps4 is $400 upfront, if you want to game online for the next 8 years with it, add another $400, now add in the extra $10-$30 more per game you will pay, say buying 20 games a year over 8 years that's 160 games, at $15 extra per game (and that is being very generous) that's at LEAST $2400 dollars more you will spend just on games on ps4 vs pc so over 8 years, your "$400" console, is going to cost you over $3200 you could build 3 gaming rigs that would f'ing DESTROY the ps4 for that or you could build one amazing pc, and buy 500 games and still spend far less than you would buying an inferior console and only getting 160 games keep telling yourself that console gaming is cheaper
This guy. It always brings a smile to my face when console gamers go on about the console being cheaper for this reason. I know the next steam sale is going to get me about 20-30 games for about 50 bucks. Now PS users have to pay to play online. on top of paying 10-15 more per game. It seriously isn't worth the price of admission. Build a Beast PC and enjoy http://gaben.tv/
