I think first they need to fix the FPS issues on PS4. Even digital foundry said that PS4 suffers from severe FPS drops, it goes to 20FPS in combat, cut screens etc, while the X1 gives a better fluid experience.

Try reading the DF article again before you troll.

Satyre28912d ago

How am i wrong? That is in summary exactly what the digital foundry stated. Stop being so butt hurt, it will be patched and fixed.

Eonjay912d ago


At no point does DF claim that the Xbox One is smoother. In fact it claims the opposite and they hope that a cap can be introduced in a later patch to remedy the inconsistent frame delivery.

KarmaV12912d ago


21 hours in on the Xbox One version. Only stuttering I've seen are the audio issues. Frame rate keeps constant.

Palitera912d ago

^ A lot of bad eyed people claim it about PS4 as well, so it really doesn't matter if you don't see the issues.

And yes, they really should fix the performance and the ridiculous PC AI on consoles. IF they can. I don't have much faith anymore in them.

Xbox One maintains less frame rate drops but it fluctuates too often so the camera is sometimes jiggles too much if that makes sense, locked 30fps patch for X1 version would be nice

Nekroo91912d ago

Damm troll cant even read "The first distinction is that PS4 caps its frame-rate at 30fps (with v-sync), while Xbox One runs with no cap at all to allow a variance between 30-40fps during play. This means Sony's machine is in theory capable of a smoother experience - "

"Overall, the fact Xbox One tends to holds a higher frame-rate is misleading in terms of the quality of the end experience; a capped 30fps is by far the preferred option in this case and we still hope to see it implemented in a future update."

PS4 version only drops during cutscenes

Articuno76912d ago

The PC version has these choppy pre-rendered sequecnes they need to do something about. At least make the pre-rendered sequences high quality/framerate so it's not so obvious (the one in-engine one I've seen anyway).

Haru912d ago

Witcher runs at 30 fps on PS4 25 fps is the lowest it goes during gameplay you troll

SCW1982912d ago

Ha ha your hilarious bro.

Hellsvacancy912d ago

You must blink quicker than the rest of us if you think the fps is that bad on PS4, i've had no problems I would say so otherwise

NuggetsOfGod912d ago (Edited 912d ago )

Or... ps4 is not a beast?

If you say a game goes lower than 25fps your trolling.

25-30fps is still meh

Low expectations is a b1tchm.....

Good more options on pc!
DS4 ftw!

psman012912d ago

Not sure about the X1 version but I've experienced a few lags on my PS4. Definitely not game breaking but there is apparent lag

Dualshock 4 on PC would be ace

Mega24912d ago

Yes it would, K/M is great, but sometimes gets exhausting while in conversations.

Khajiit86912d ago

I use it for games like Witcher 3 and SOM.

ThanatosDMC912d ago

Hopefully they also change the button graphics instead of using the Xbox controller graphics. Been hating that for most of my PC games that support controllers.

GrimmQuiorra912d ago

Made this account hoping to help in regards to this.

There's a program called "Input Mapper" that allows you to use a DS4 controller on most PC games.

Some games will still recognize the controller as an Xbox 360/One controller (X, Y, Rb, Lb Etc) but you will still be able to use your DS 4.

Hope this Helps :D

I was really surprised they don't support the DS4 natively, even though it works totally fine with XBox symbols. Would prefer Triangle amped Square anyway.

Khajiit86912d ago

Native support is always good. I owned Xbox, and Xbox 360 with of course all PS consoles so if triangle or Y pop up it just comes naturally.

Shinuz912d ago

Yes yes more games with ds4 on pc please!! Even though the program i use to make mine work on pc is wonderfull, official support is always better.

ANIALATOR136910d ago

Which programme do you use?

Shinuz910d ago

Its called Ds4Windows, works really great. I have mine setup over bluetooth and it works flawlessly.

Just google it, there's 2 version of the program but the best one (in my opinion) is the one done by Jays2Kings.

Roccetarius912d ago (Edited 912d ago )

Some Cheatengine users are already trying to create a photo mode ( PC ) with free camera and such, so that should be interesting. I'm already using the FoV change, and it makes it much better to play for me.

Han_Nolo912d ago

What FoV change are you talking about? I don't know about this.

Incidentally, do you know of a screenshot key for non-Steam users?

Roccetarius912d ago (Edited 912d ago )

It's only a temporary fix until something more permanent, but download the file on top of this page. Use F2 to enable / disable and + / - num pad keys to change FoV. http://forum.cheatengine.or...

You need Cheatengine to run this as well, obviously.,xU... First image is default, the second is changed to 90. Cutscenes seem out of place with this, so you will have to enable / disable it in that case.

Screenshots i'm not sure about, other than using the print screen key or Raptr, but the latter has poor quality screenshots.
