So we can stop worrying about the Xbox One version then. Looks great. (not glorious or incredible Ab?)

I see our trusty friend sent you the footage too hehe.

Abriael986d ago

They're pretty much equivalents, but "great" was the only one that fit the 100 character limit lol.

By the way, I was one of the first to advocate that the Xbox One version looks great :D

Bigpappy986d ago

Yep. I remember when you posted that you actually ha hands-on with the X1 version. I wan never worried about the X1 version though. The higher resolution does give bragging rights to PS4 owners, but I only have to deal with being shouted down by rabid fanboys when I comment here. I when I am paying and speaking to real people who matter, resolution never comes up for discussion.

BecauseImBatman986d ago

Great job getting this out there so we can this debate to bed. Looks great, lets move on...

GMR_PR986d ago

Where are the haters now. Good to see the game looks great. Cant wait to play it.

PsylentKiller986d ago

Have you seen he game running on the PS4? More specifically the same scenes as in this video? I'm curious because the beard on the dude ,who almost got killed by the griffin, looks really muddy like when your writing with pencil and your had smudges the graphite all over the page.

Also, have you noticed any screen tearing or noticeable framerate issues in either version?

mikeslemonade986d ago

You X1 apologists are full of it. Stop trying to justify your purchase. The developers already admitted parity. They scaled down the PC version too.

Pogmathoin986d ago

Been watching the comments for a while, and apart from Mikes Urine, has anyone found a valid reason other than stupid fanboyism to undermine this? Fantastic looking, without DX12......

Rookie_Monster986d ago

Great work Abriael on the preview. Keep up the great work.

miyamoto985d ago

"By the way, I was one of the first to advocate that the Xbox One version looks great :D"

So that means the PS4 version is even greater. Thanks.

wegetsignalx978d ago


With that it would still run pretty much the same on Witcher 3.

The low 900p resolution is really apparent though. I'll be going with the full 1080p PS4 version.

@Abriel. I do have 20/20 vision thanks.

@Septic. The video is a 720p capture of 900p gameplay. You can still see the difference between 900p and full 1080p because it looks blurrier

Abriael986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

You must have 20/10 per eye.

Or... not.

I saw the game running on Xbox One, and it looks even better, by the way. Game DVR is crappy.

Septic986d ago

The video is highly compressed and limited to 720p as opposed to 900p.

GenuineGamer986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

Video is very compressed and still looks amazing.

A native uncompressed feed then upscaled to 1080p on your tv in person will look incredible. I highly doubt anyone in person would be able to say "hey, that's not 100% native 1080p" if they weren't told otherwise.

Game looks amazing but hey, haters gone hate.

skulz7986d ago

Dude don't be like that. I am a PS4 owner and I'm just respecting CDPR for making this game look insane on all platforms. Which ever platform you choose it will look great! :)

Fallen86986d ago

True words skulz7 witch ever platform you pick it will be freaking awesome!

christocolus986d ago (Edited 986d ago )


"The low 900p resolution is apparent though" do you know what res youtube vids run at? I guess septic just answerd the question. lmao your comment surprises no one. Once again you rush in to downplay xbox stuff. The game looks great. deal with it.

lifeisgamesok986d ago

There's always one lol

Looks great!

AstroCyborg986d ago

nice to know you didn't read the article

Kiwi66986d ago (Edited 986d ago )

Well your concern for a game on a console that you constantly down play and otherwise have no interest in is very touching

OldDude986d ago

You must have supervision to tell the difference off of a 720p you tube compressed video. Are you part of the Avengers with that Superpower? I really hope you use it for good, not evil! Wait, your obviously trolling so I guess I already have my answer.

gamer7804986d ago

why is the word "Full" in there, 1080p isn't the maximum resolution for this game, the game on pc can push way beyond 1080p.

MasterBaker986d ago

It'll look pretty amazing when we get the full 1080p gameplay, because this is limited to the Xbox DVR

tgunzz986d ago

Looks to be prestine for all 3 camps...

Magicite986d ago

We all know that open-world games are weakness of any consoles, so its always wiser to take PC version when possible.

Godmars290985d ago

It was never about how the game looked on the platform, but rather MS's insecurities how well there version ranked against other platforms. Whether it looked just as good if not better than the PC or, and especially, the PS4 version. Not that such pointless tactics wouldn't be found out by anyone interested in the differences.

Very impressive. CDProjekt truly are wizards when it comes to programming. This is unreal honestly.

meche334985d ago

Imo this is the start on the generation. This might be the standard of graphics next year

TheOneWhoIsTornApart985d ago

Yea this,THe Order, Bloodborne really show what the PS4 can do and this is only the beginning. When finished FFXV will also be a visual spectacle you can be sure. It's definitley an exciting time to be a gamer.

TheOpenWorlder986d ago

I don't get what the fuss is. The only major difference is 900p vs 1080p...that's what they said and I see no reason why they would lie.

I am definitely to a loss as why they are hiding direct Xbox One gameplay footage for dear life...which would make anyone suspicious as hell but I trust them after Witcher 2. Hopefully they didn't pull an Ubisoft with the XB1 version.

Psychotica986d ago

I will be playing on PC but this looks perfectly fine unless you want to get nitpicky..

starchild986d ago

I agree. I'm playing on PC and I can see a few differences, but I won't point them out because I think that all three versions look excellent.

tuglu_pati986d ago

PC will always look better no doubt about that, its always been like that.
