Today you saw a video of the PS4 version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and if you want to see how the Xbox One version looks as well, a second video emerged, giving a nice glimpse on gameplay.
A download link of both videos is available in the post.
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.
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
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.
Great job getting this out there so we can this debate to bed. Looks great, lets move on...
Where are the haters now. Good to see the game looks great. Cant wait to play it.
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?
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.
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......
Great work Abriael on the preview. Keep up the great work.
"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.
@Pogmathoin 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
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.
The video is highly compressed and limited to 720p as opposed to 900p.
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.
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! :)
True words skulz7 witch ever platform you pick it will be freaking awesome!
@Rocket "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.
There's always one lol Looks great!
nice to know you didn't read the article
Well your concern for a game on a console that you constantly down play and otherwise have no interest in is very touching
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.
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.
It'll look pretty amazing when we get the full 1080p gameplay, because this is limited to the Xbox DVR
I agree 100%
Looks to be prestine for all 3 camps...
We all know that open-world games are weakness of any consoles, so its always wiser to take PC version when possible.
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.
Can't wait to play
Very impressive. CDProjekt truly are wizards when it comes to programming. This is unreal honestly.
Imo this is the start on the generation. This might be the standard of graphics next year
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.
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.
I will be playing on PC but this looks perfectly fine unless you want to get nitpicky..
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.
PC will always look better no doubt about that, its always been like that.
It looks amazing!Good job CD PROJEKT RED.. Never had a doubt in my life.. Happy for my collecters edition coming for xbox one! It will be amazing journy. Peace
Looks awesome. Just like Dragon Age Inquisition, 900p upscaled to 1080p produces virtually undistinguishable results. I was expecting Geralt's armor to show some low res artifacts, but its clear and crisp.
I am going to play this on X1. Just worried about this and ESO being released so close. No way I can play them both at same time.
ESO isn't really that good so there's nthigg to worry about.
First video I've seen where the trees are calm.
Good to see so much posetive comments on xbox one gamplay! not all the hate and negative Discussion
Can't wait to pick up my Xbox One copy on the 19th! I knew it looked awesome because yesterday there were Twitch streams of the game on Xbox One. Everyone (regardless of platform) is getting a fantastic looking game.
Looks fine to me. Other than some shadow fade ins (which was prevalent in the PS4 gameplay as well), it's looks good. So I wonder why CD Projekt Red haven't shown any official footage for the X1 yet, given their marketing deal with Microsoft. I mean, they could've just shown a couple of minutes of the intro and that would've been enough. Perhaps the X1 version has some deeper issues? Or perhaps they're intentionally creating this controversy (aka trolling), and at release we would have seen there was nothing to worry about. Personally I'll be playing it on PC, but it's good too see that it looks great on all platforms, and everyone's going to have a blast!
Looks good to me. :)
We need more game studios, devs like CDPR those guys are dedicated 100% on ALL platforms
See, it's looks pretty amazing, I just don't get why they don't want to show it? it looks fantastic!
I cant wait to just get lost in this game. I cant complain about those visuals at all. Im happy with it.
Yep my doubts are gone now, although I hate myself for not buying it while it was listed at 59.99, because now it's listed at 69.99 since I'm in Canada, so it was likely a mistake before. >:(
May 19th seriously can't come fast enough. Going to be a class A bum since this game will consume so much of my time.
I see nothing wrong here, moveing on.
The game is gonna look good on which ever platform u play it on.
Reviews for the game are out next week are they not? I purchased the PC version myself. X box one version looks good there was uproar over nothing again.
Check out the water on the xbox one version. pretty sexy: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Seriously though, I wanna pre-order, but can't make up my mind, ps4 or xbox one? Literally a matter of picking up one controller vs. the other, so honestly I have no bias, but....which one...
I'm assuming you have both? I'm getting it on xbox one because overall i like the system UI and features xbox has more than playstations. I'm also looking forward to seeing the kind of art this game has with its achievements. CDPR have said the game is identical on ps4 and xbox one, except for resolution. So if the frame rate is stable on both then ps4 is the better version from a 'technical' standpoint. However XB1 upscales and usually has good filtering to sharpen up the image to come in line with a native 1080 image. But resolution does not always = better graphics. Just the clarity so this is why a 900p image can be enhanced to look just as good. So in reality they are both pretty much on par so its really about which system and controller you prefer. *edit, there is rumor of The Witcher 3 and Batman Arkham Knight getting dx12 updates later in the year which could give the extra coding efficiency it needs to hit native 1080p on xbox one. Although i think the dx12 support for these two games later on may just be for the PC versions. I am not sure so well have to wait and see.
I be getting it for the playstation 4 since multiplatform games runs better then the x1 version anyways the ui is very sleek and I believe the features are just the same as the x1 I like the contoller over the DS2 and every1 I know has a ps4 come n add me splunkymunkey
@whitey2k That's not true buddy. Its ok to prefer ps4 but multiplats do not always run better on ps4. A lot of multiplats actually have more stable frame rates on xbox one and sometimes better LOD and AF. Just because sometimes ps4 has a slightly higher res does not always mean its better ;) Xbox one has features ps4 does not. Like snap for instance. I can watch tv or use an app or something at the same time as playing a game. You cant do this on ps4. Xbox one has better multitasking features like this and lots of connectivity and media support that ps4 lacks. PS4 is a great console though with killer graphics and has a few features of its own that xbox one doesn't have yet like remote play. Either way for The Witcher 3 you cant go wrong whichever version you choose.
This is pathetic. You're Almont like a child. Whitey said he's getting it for PS4 for obvious reasons. Let him have his preference. No need to get butthurt over HIS preferences. Besides, most people will buy it for PS4, so I see alot of butthurt in your future.
900p is not in line with 1080p, no matter what kind of upscaling or sharpening is applied. It's 633,000 less pixels. The PS4 version of multiplatform games consistent have both a higher resolution and a higher framerate. AF and LoD in Dying Light for PS4 was patched. A small number of games with framerate/visual issues were patched in PS4's favor: AC Unity, GTA V, Dying Light, etc. As of patch 1.01 PS4 has higher resolution and framerate according to Gamersyde and others with hands on impressions. X1 suffers from frame pacing and runs at 900p most of the time according to NXGamer. DX12 is not going to help GPU bound games like that.
God, it looks great. Anyone but me feel like this game is the spiritual successor to Red Dead Redemption? Not just the horse, but the music, camera, environment interplay "feels" very similar.
Hmmm i never thought of looking at it that way.. personally i can't see it as a spiritual successor. The games are too different at their cores to be related, but i see where you coming from aye there are a lot of similarities ;)
Fair point. I'll have to get my hands on it to really test the similarities, but I suspect you're right. You know, in a way they are both sort of fantasy genre, RDR just happens to be sort of based on U.S. history. I take it back; this is a bad theory, hehe.
Still looks boring AF
Tell me more. I'm sooooo interested in what you have to say.
Yup lol and I really don't see the big hype for this game but to each their own.
Looks great on both consoles, I expect the fanboys will still be in full voice when it is released though...
Why do so many people argue over graphical comparisons between consoles and pc's these days? What happened to the time when you would play a game for the gameplay or the experience? I feel like all the pc elitists constantly moan at us console people for being "inferior" to them when infact we are all going to be playing the same game, you don't get anything special because you play on a pc. This is why I love games like dark souls, that game showed gamers that regardless of your choice of platform you could have the same experience and still come together as a community to talk about said experience. I have an Xbox one and have already preordered the game, can't wait to play it and find my own way around this gorgeous, sprawling world.
