The Witcher 3 on PS Vita will have 'flexible and universal' controls, says game director

PSU writes:

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an utterly impressive RPG that wowed us at E3. We awarded Geralt's final journey with our E3 2013 Best RPG award, but I couldn't help but think past the next-gen demo and wonder how the game would look running on PS Vita with Remote Play.

In an exclusive post-E3 interview, I asked The Witcher 3 game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz how CD Projekt RED's next-gen RPG would play on Sony's fledgling handheld. What kind of control challenges does his studio face when thinking about PS Vita compatibility?"

That's awesome to hear that they're making sure the Vita's remote play controls are compatible. Definitely excited to get this on my PS4.

Gotta love the fact sony made it mandatory for vita remote play for every ps4 game.

The Witcher on PS Vita?


coolmastermarktwo1025d ago

you can play any ps4 game you want on ps vita, not just witcher.

minimur121025d ago

I got all excited it was actually on Vita.... untill I realised from comments it was from remote play Dx

You do realize as long as you have wifi you can play your PS4 games on your vita right, how is that a bad thing?

BattleAxe1024d ago

Looking forward to playing this on Steam, and Streaming it on my nVidia Shield will be epic!

More than likely local wifi not just wifi

It just makes it more baffling that Sony left out four key buttons (l2, l3, r2, r3) on the Vita because devs now have to do extra work to make it fully compatible.

I know you have the touchpad and you can edit layouts but they are solutions to a problem that shouldn't exist.

Yeah, if this remote play functionality works as good as they're saying, the PS4/Vita combo will have an advantage that no other system can match. Being able to play huge games like The Witcher, or MP in Battlefield, or later... games like Grand Theft Auto, anywhere will be amazing. I REALLY hope it works with no lag... I have my doubts, but I'm still very hopeful.

CDPR.. PC DEVS = best support even on consoles..

Bet they will give free dlc on ps4 also!

Ragthorn1024d ago

CD Projekt Red are on of the best PC Devs in the industry, they support us 100% and never fail to deliver quality games.
Free Dlc on PC first, lol jk!

Ragthorn1024d ago

This is very impressive, I am happy to hear this about the Vita. I will get it on PC myself, as I did with all the Witcher games, but I am happy that consoles get the same love!

after hearing this vita vibrated .....does it have a duel shock hidden feature, or is it as excited about playing ps4 games as I am?o.O

The_Troll_Whisperer1026d ago

I would like for the Vita to have add-on back triggers, in my opinion, so I can make a seamless transition from my PS4 to my Vita 8D.

Aggesan1025d ago

Even if it did, you'd still miss the L3 and R3 buttons. A good front screen touch interface is the way to go.


PS4 sticks are not clickable either.

NukaCola1024d ago


You're lying about!

tubers1024d ago

Sony should make a VITA REMAP APP for PS4 games:

-Fully Remap VITA Buttons
-Create Any Virtual Button/s:
--placement (front and back)
--opacity (0-100%)

Over time this should become even easier than your transition from talking with dogs to talking with trolls.

Btw, should your comments be read as if it's Caesar Milan talking?

Thirty3Three1025d ago

Wasn't this already posted? I read this article days ago...

Jamiex661025d ago

Yep same, it seems at this time of the day anything gets through

KwietStorm1025d ago

Thought it was an actual port -_-

PeaSFor1024d ago

why would you need a port when you have the game on ps4?

KwietStorm1024d ago

Because it's played remotely, obviously needing an internet connection at all times, and that's not taking latency into account.

tubers1024d ago


Latency/input lag won't exist in N4G for Sony PS4 to PSV streaming.

DarkHeroZX1024d ago

Actually if you use local connection than your vita connects directly to the console without home WiFi connections.
