"We always want to provide the best possible experience to all our gamers regardless of the platform and so we are not aiming to develop special graphical features for any of them"

This HAS to be the biggest PR BS contradicting statement I have ever seen from a developer. Did that guy think about what he was saying? How the hell do you deliver the best possible experience to every one by aiming for parity?. By his logic I hope the PC version does not look better than the console versions and they aim for parity across board.

It vexes me how CD Projekt went from standing against everything Microsoft stood to basically **** riding Microsoft this gen.

BEFORE:

-DRM is bad
- We started GOG so PC users can have more options
- We love PC
- Push graphics spectrum!

NOW:

- DRM is good
- options are bad
- PC users can suck it
- 1080p is a mythical resolution

agreed. this is bull.
i admit i dont have a capable p so ill probably be playing this on ps4 but this isnt the cdpr i knew.

theyre the ones who still roll out balancing mods and free dlc for witcher 2.
and now theyre just busy praising drm and MS. you cant make the best possible version without using their special features.
i have a feeling they might just end up gimping all version to xb1 level because MS isnt competent enough to make a good console but they have a lot of money

where did you get the DRM is good (game is DRM free)? they're still providing options (on GOG, Steam and both consoles), PC gamers are getting way better support than consoles in terms of FPS and Res (depends on your rig of course but i don't believe they're artifically gimping them), and not sure where the last part came from at all

Why argue with any of you? You all believe whatever you want to be true either way.

Supporting evidence is easy to find no matter what side of the coin you're on.

r9 290/290x are supreme beasts of a cards. Not to be compared to the ps4 or xbox gpu, in either graphical performance, or "compute"

Im still new here, but I really hear some wacky stuff around these parts.

I mean what on earth made you think that the ps4 gpu would come anywhere close to AMD's flagship card lineup? even if Cerny somehow shoehorned that into his speech...

The DRM on PSNow is kind of how the whole service works. The entire game is processed by the servers otherwise the game wouldn't work at all on PSVita, PS4, PC, etc. It works just like OnLive, Netflix, Hulu, and any other media streaming equivalents.

This is different from DRM in its conventional sense.

For anyone thinking the PS4 GPU is a R9 290 should really not comment on anything technical or hardware specific, NVIDIA GTX 750TI has beaten the PS4 in benchmark tests on a couple of games and that card is £100 on amazon, lastly if SONY were so proud of their hardware why don't they put a benchmark application on there like 3D mark 11 and show how good it is

DougLord  +   123d ago
I thought PS4 was around a 760 (1.8tf) and X bone was 750ti (1.3tf). Regardless I agree with your point (albeit unspoken), even if CD PROJECT used every ounce of power the PS4 has, it would be barely noticeable vs the Xbone, and a good PC would kill them both (although still not enough of a difference to make a real meaningful impact on gameplay).

@ the infected, yes that I called optimization, But optimization doesn't mean what it used to, before xoneps4 there was unique hardware to learn. Now it's just typical PC hardware. now optimization pretty much means if a dev wants to get 1080 60 they can adjust the settings. PC gamers have optimization too, if my game isn't running at 60fps I turn the settings down.

All we can hope for now is that the XB1 version is great because that's the version the PS4 gamers are going to get. What a pity 'some' developers are not prepared to take advantage of that 40% extra horse power. Microsoft's whole strategy this generation is going to be: 'If you can't beat them, hold them back.'

It won't work though because as the install base of the PS4 grows much bigger and the gap grows bigger too, the money required to influence parity will increase exponentially. In the short term, the PS4 will be held back for 'some' games, but in the long term the differences will become ever more apparent and go beyond simple resolution and framerate.

As for his comment, I think they said exactly what a smart marketing person would say. They could have flat out said "PS4 and Xbone don't have the power to run the game with anti-aliasing or details anywhere close to the PC version. You console fanboys need to realize they're made with two year old mobile technology".

joab777  +   123d ago
I agree completely. I love CD Project Red, I do. But there is definitely an affinity towards MS. So, to provide the best possible gameplay to everyone, you would build and use every tool that each platform has at its disposal. Thus, PC at ultra settings would look and run best. Then, the PS4 and finally xbone. Does this alter gameplay? No. But you don't build a game at the lowest common denominator to make the most ppl happy.
CaptainObvious878  +   122d ago
Actually, considering the install bases of the 3 platforms, by aiming for parity on the xbone it's pissing a large majority of the fanbase off.

So in other words PS4 version dumbed down as MS asked them too with probably a bag of money they tried using to get consol exclusivity like with Tombraider. Horray MS yet again holding multiplats back because they released a weaker piece of hardware. And people wonder why I hate MS as a gamer. Hmm I wonder why???

I highly doubt this will effect the PC version but if it did oh boy, people think PS4 fans were pissed at the Tombraider deal well wait for PC fans with this.

Holy shit, PS4 fans thinking their GPU is as good as a 290 is one of the funniest things I have read on this site to date. Delusional is an understatement.

You seriously think that because both have 8 ACE's they are somehow the same? That's like saying a 1ghz quad core CPU is the same as a 5ghz CPU because they have the same amount of cores...

As someone who owns a R9 290 and a PS4 I can tell you this; my GPU blows the absolute shit out of the PS4, which is what you would expect since it was nearly the same price just for the GPU as my PS4 was at launch.

Why bother mentioning the R9 290 when the PS4's performance comes no where close to it? Just because they share 8 Asynchronous Compute Engines doesn't mean nothing, actual performance in games does.

But for gods sake don't dumb down the experience for those people just so the weakest console is on par with the most powerful platform.

Maybe it doesn't take any extra time to max out the game on that system as long as said system is easier to develop for than other systems on the market.

Ever thought about that?

P.S There are plenty of examples of multiplats running better on the PS4 than the Xbox One and I'm pretty sure the developers didn't spend extra time to achieve that. Most recent example is Metro Redux on the PS4.

XB1 is the weakest platform. CDPR is developing for parity (which they'd said they wouldn't do). Stronger platforms, therefore, will have the XB1 version of the game.

on a good pc, higher resolution and framerate will be worth it alone. It'll have better anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering as well as uber sampling and higher res textures. if you have nvidia you'll be able to have better physics in the water and fur and other things.

This is why I really like the direction Sony is taking with a higher focus on their own in-house studio's and helping promote smaller developers. Most of the major 3rd parties really don't care and for all we know Microsoft is probably paying these companies to keep the games balanced across all platforms so people won't notice the graphical gap. Some probably don't remember but when PS4 and Xbox one 1st came out Microsoft was paying developers to not speak on the power difference of the consoles. On the flip side only Sony's in-house studios and the indies are the only ones that's going to truly take advantage of the hardware and utilize all it's features.

I don't get this article. The quotes give no indication that they're searching for parity. In fact, the guy was quoted as saying the opposite ... The author says they're "trying to bring tje same experience to xbox one and ps4." Doesn't mean the ps4 won't be better because of load times, consistent frame rates, etc.

So, quit your bitching.

Coming from Gamingbolt, i wouldn't be surprised if it's to spin controversy. They're not exactly one of the best sources.

If only they had just stuck with the PC market, instead of the political boxes as well.

Your probably spot on & the quotes are most likely taken out of context.

I guess the parity issues of last gen haven't gone away completely. Never mind. I'm still going to enjoy this game.

Bethesda makes the only good RPGs outside of Japan for me
BloodBorne is where it's at!
Roccetarius  +   123d ago
Bethesda makes RPG's? I thought they only made Action / Exploration games.
MAULxx  +   122d ago
They definately make great RPGs that have action, exploration & a mountain of stories & lore but how that has any relation to Bloodborne is beyond me.

What's your definition of RPG? Last time I checked that stands for role playing game, and last time I checked that's exactly what the elder scrolls games are. Like em or hate em, you gotta admit that the ES games are some of the best games around, with some of the best lore. If only they weren't so dang bug-ridden. And that musical score is just genius
nucky64  +   123d ago
well, if the game isn't 1080p, i'll wait till I can get a used copy for 25 dollars. with x1 having trouble getting 1080p resolution on many games, it seems obvious CD red is going to have ps4 limited to what they can get out of the x1. and, this doesn't make any sense. I've kept hearing that the devs delayed the game to make it as good as possible - now they're saying something completely different.....very bizarre.

parity = pre-order cancelled

"...trying to deliver the same experience across all platforms..." So, the best platform won't see its benifits because of the weakest platform? I think these Polish people are full of sh*t.

They're aiming for parity? I remember them saying a while back that they weren't gonna hold the PS4 back..

Parity from optimization obviously, Destiny is doing it, Hard line is doing it, Witcher 3, and several others. The gap is not as big as you think it is.

PC version, always the best version

Not on my pc lol
Predaking77  +   123d ago
And this is the reason why they manage to get 1080p on x1, they developed the game based on the weaker factor which is the Xbox 1 and at the same time they say they look to bring the best possible experience in every platform ja. Is very ugly when a developer is caught talking pure Sh.t
Rowco147  +   122d ago
So make the PS4 look the same as xbox one and punish people who bought a ps4 and give them a downgrade
thexmanone  +   122d ago
Downgrade, You got to be kidding. The PS4 is not as powerful as you may think. That's the problem with this web site, the PS4 fans. Why can`t we all just be gamers again.
Rowco147  +   122d ago
Parity would be the word then if you don't want to use downgrade. Ps4 is using 4x MSAA for the Order 1886 and other exclusives so it is to a parity or whatever you call it. I'd love to and probably will soon get a Xbox one to go with my 360. I like to have all systems I'm a fan of gaming and when it comes to companies not utilizing the hardware for these reasons it upsets a lot of consumers . I am just a gamer

1 CD Project Red are PC Devs they made TW3 PC first then ported down as it should be

2. Lets be real here for once....dont all console multiplats look the same......YES

No need to curse cdpr as they are doing the same thing ubisoft activision ea etc. would do, Parity.

Maybe slight differences texture resolution but no dev is gonna make one console version superior to the other.

Also hardware Msaa requires brute force and keep in mind although powerful xb1 ps4 are using laptop parts capped at 250-300 watts.

Save that power for other stuff and use lighter AA
