Forbes writes- "The problem with delays, however, is that they can look bad. Even if we acknowledge, as consumers, that a game being pushed back might be a good thing in the end, it can be troubling to skittish investors."
Poor Witcher, having to share title with Assassin's Greed: Glitch
The Witcher 3 vs 'The Glitcher 24'
How do we know Witcher 3 wont be dipping into the teens on console too? So will you then rephrase this "glitch 3 vs glitch 24"? AC Unity is a dam awesome looking game, consoles just arent up to it. Check the benchmark reviews most people are playing AC Unity at 60fps on GPUs like GTX 780 mostly high settings. Lower end Pcs with 600 series GPUs can play this 30fps with medium settings. This is exactly what happens when a developer makes a game that pushes graphics. I am personally playing AC Unity at 5760 * 1080p Ultra settings and i get between 80 - 120 fps. Sure i have a monster rig. But this just goes to show you the game is not broken. It works scales according to your hardware. Console hardware just happens to be too weak. Witcher 3 just like AC unity will be a game that pushes graphics, CD project already came out with a statement saying they will try make this 30fps on console. Generally when devs come out with such statements it means hardware is under powered. There is no such thing as 30fps locked unless the hardware is powerful enough. AC unity having dips just shows weak console hardware.
@decrypt "AC Unity is a dam awesome looking game, consoles just arent up to it." Even some high end PCs can't even run it smoothly. Its not because those PCs are too weak to run the game its just that Ubisoft did a horrible job with the programming. They said this themselves and I believe their word takes priority over yours. Watch how Project Red does a better job than Ubisoft with the Witcher 3.
@decrypt No it's not the consoles fault. It's poor optimization on Ubisofts part.
Isn't this a bit like comparing a fine wine to a cheap beer?
Epic clash story mate.
As the article notes, Ubisoft stock didn't take the big hit it took when it delayed games; but the long term hit to the Assassin's Creed series is likely to be far greater. The thing is, investors don't look long term much anymore, it's all about quick trading (sometimes in seconds, done via computers using algorithms, under no human being's control) rather than looking at long term outcomes. A smart company will ignore what the stock does, and instead look at what is best for profits long term, a dumb company will focus on stock price and eventually perish or diminish until they are smart again.
Why is there even a comparison?!?
