Eurogamer: In Poland last week I broached, with CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski, the delicate matter of whether The Witcher 3 will run better on PS4 than on Xbox One.
Pfffsshh whatever, i still got Kinect http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photo... God i love these gifs http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photo...
That Kinect gif still cracks me up. xD
lol. That look on the face of the kid with the red shirt when he sees what his parents are doing is priceless.
Wow. Just wow. Even I find these amusing. XD
I don't think it will be a maybe more like a definitely would be the realistic answer.
"We are still working on squeezing the juice out of the consoles and Microsoft are supporting us in this respect," Iwinski told me." "It's more of a PR differentiation," he added, "which is very important for Sony right now - and they are using it, obviously - than something that is really meaningful to gamers. "We're definitely working to max out each of the platforms in terms of what we can get, because that's a crucial element of The Witcher 3" Man the downplaying of the difference is ridiculous so first he says they're working with MS to optimize the game yet the difference is not meaningful to gamers and is more of a PR play. You just contradicted yourself because if it wasn't important you won't be working with the platform holder in order to improve the game. This constant downplaying is stupid consumers compare products all the time in order to choose what's best for them. Why and how does more/steadier framerate or higher res not beneficial to gamers? Why do we have multiple consoles to choose from where does PC gaming exist? Theses things matter they mattered last gen and they still matter now especially when the differences are more. It's funny this is coming from a studio that is making a game that will be a visual benchmark.
I pretty much agree with everything you said. Most of us can easily see through this PR BS, but I can't really blame the guy. Resolutiongate is a very touchy subject for both parties. MS fans get defensive when they hear there's a difference, and Sony fans get annoyed when they hear parity. So they try to stay in the middle ground; saying there is a difference, but it's only "slight" in a desperate attempt to not anger anyone. I don't know why we all just can't be open and honest about it though.
squeezing juice OUT of consoles? I thought MS was pouring special sauce in? :P
Most multiplatform games runs better on PS4. Since the game been pushed back till next year they can optimize the xbox one version as much possible with all the extra time. Still gonna get the xbox one version regardless cause it's my console of choice.
Hopefully people won't come to your house and lynch you for that lol.
You say "most". Is there a multiplatform game that runs better on Xbox One?
Yes just one, and its called Strider a side-scrolling platform game developed by Double Helix you know the same people that made Killer Instinct on xbone;) But the only diffrence is better texture filtering nothing to much.
@Hyper_Tension140: I can live with that track record.
Good on ya for sticking to your guns. Even if the Xbox One versions don't run at the same resolution, I fail to see what makes them unworthy purchases to some people. So they don't perform as well. So what? They're still great games. That much is still true.
Why do you feel need tell people your console of choice lol....
No way. I'm shocked. /s
PS4 is obliviously going to run better lol
no shit games will run better on better hardware
but devz have the power to make the games looks the same on both. like taking 2 different pcs and setting everything to low settings and 640x480 resolution. them games will look just as shitty weather you have a 64MB card or 2GB DDR5 card.
you dont say!
I'd be very surprised at this stage if it did not.
I think ill get this on xbox one regardless just because Ive played Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 and I like to keep game series on one console. its sort of an obsession of mine.
Fair enough, but it's not the same console, nor is it the whole series.
No but same gamer tag, will be under the same games played history etc. May seem odd to some people its just the way I like it. I do the same with some games on PS, for example Metal Gear and Final Fantasy. I wouldn't play those on Xbox
The witcher 2 is so good. I wished it came out for ps3 or ps4 as a nicde warm up for witcher 3
To be honest Im not very far into it, I got it for 99p from a foreign marketplace but only played it for a few hours before other games made me forget it. I revisit it now and again but I need to complete it before the third comes out!
I don't see the point in having the witcher 2 on the PS3. It would be like having an incomplete game but having it on the PS4 would be great because your choices made in the game would carry to the Witcher 3.
There will be disparity in multiplatform titles all the way up until DX12 drops in winter 2015. Long gen for some folk I feel. Might as well expect worse running multiplats on Xbone now.
this is isn't funny MS, you gotta do something this is the first time in history that a more expensive console offer less technical prowess MS gotta drop kinect now before it's too late
dont worry....THA CLOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUD IS COMING sarcasm off.
Enough of this, bring on the games.
Framerate over resolution PLEASE!
Or both. Both is good.
Aside from Call of Duty Ghost, every game has had better or equal framerate on PS4 even with higher resolution. I dont know why there still people thinking sony is sacrificing FPS for resolution, PS4 is MORE powerful why dont you guys understand.
@Hyper_Tension140 maybe because DRIVECLUB IS 30FPS?!
What does driveclub have to do with PS4 multi plats running at higher resolutions and better framerates?
Cd proyect developers should just focused on the game quality, let sony and ms do the pr sht however they want.
Whatever the final res and fps are gonna be..... I cant get enough of that trailer !! I need this game !!
No sh!t sherlock. Will be the same all this gen. All that extra power ....and they barely have to life a finger to tap into it. Can't deny the large gulf in hardware. Software only goes far...
Who cares, it's going to run best on my PC.
Who would have ever thought a game would run better on a more powerful GPU and faster RAM. This is news to me.
Don't forget ms has the more powerful cpu. If used correctly with the esram then parity will be the norm and cd project red seems to have a great relationship with microsoft so I would say parity for sure maybe better on the one.
Where u get that from? Despite its speed increase the ps4 cpu outperforms x1 cpu in benchmark tests
What else is new?! :D
It would be questionable if it didn't.
I'm not surprised. :I
meanwhile Next-gen edition is exclusive on PC lolz
Developers even said themselves that the best platform to enjoy the game on will be PC. As for the consoles obviously the PS4 is going to be the best choice, SONY did not skimp on the GPU for a motion sensor gimmick.
Let it sink in and we can move on. The standard is PC >PS4>XB1/WiiU Of course with the only exception being next gen remakes that don't come to pc i.e Tomb Raider.
Developers don't have to say anything every one knows every single multiplatform game will look and perform better on PS4.
So the PS4 version will perform better. I have an xbox one so frankly im not arsed how the PS4 can perform. i dont have one so next news article please
Well this is an improvement for CD Projekt, a few months ago they claimed there'd be no difference between the PS4 and Xbone versions. Now they claim there is a difference but it is very slight. Therefore it would be logical to expect that two months from now they'll say 1080p for PS4 and mention nothing about Xbone's resolution meanwhile swearing that the two versions will be similar. We'd have to wait 'til Eurogamer examines the released game to find out the Xbone version runs at 720p with regular fps dips to the lower digits.
The colour of the pen that i hold in my hand is r---r-royal blue.
Nothing new, as usual: PC > PS4 >>>> Xbone
Was that suppose to be a surprise?
And this is why an Xbox One for the same price as PS4 is not a good deal. Open your frickin eyes sheeple.
Everyone knows that.
@Yurtigo,@wynams....Smart people know this. Have you seen the number of people around the internet celebrating the price drop and saying they are now going to buy one? Apparently they dont know.
LOL, the title of this article makes it sound so unnecessary.
if the games good on its own it shouldnt have to resort to gimmicks of what console it will run better on to sell.
If these guys are truly "maxing out" the hardware on both, then there is no reason for the PS4 version to not be superior. It has the clear hardware advantage. I hope they don't nerf the ps4 version.
So basically the 5 year old gaming pc will run better than the 6 year old gaming pc with The Witcher 3. Yes, folks with the wonderful high tech new hardware next gen super consoles being locked at 1080p for gaming they are basically like 5 year old average gaming pcs. PS4 still gets great exclusive games though.
If they are honest about not letting one console hold another back, then the PS4 should be slightly better
they better be lol dont want another gen MS holding the games back like they did with the 360
no surprises better console most powerful console= running better
Does anyone think we will ever see a game run better on the XB1?
Don't care, want it, shut up and take my money. My only wish regarding the past Witcher games is that they would remaster them and release them on PS4, or PS3 for that matter, i'd even take it on there just to be able to play them on a console, have both games on my Mac but haven't gotten around to playing much of either of them since I rarely touch the computer.
