Is The Witcher 3’s Graphical Downgrade Something Media Should Be Discussing?

When Watch_Dogs released, media and fans were disappointed with the visuals of the final product as compared to what was initially revealed. Now The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt releases and it doesn't look like its reveal trailers, but the media isn't nearly as upset about it. The team at EGMR wonders why.

Looking at it the difference is massive. Guess I just don't care anymore. Oh well. The game is amazing at least

Of course they're not going to discuss it and bash it down to the ground like they're supposed to.. It doesn't have EA in the title.. That's usually the only time they bitch and complain about something..

I don't see that massive downgrade your talking about? Only a little.... Now ubisoft and watch dogs I consider a massive downgrade..
But the witcher 3 still looks great at least.

I'll be honest, I find the whole downgrade talk to be a bit pathetic. Comparing the final product on 3 different platforms to a 'target render' reveal trailer is disingenuous and utterly stupid.

And no, the media and gamers alike should not cry downgrade. We should congratulate CDPR for creating what I believe to be the most ambitious open world RPG in recent times, and comparably with only half the budget of Skyrim.

@Army_of_Darkness are you seriously saying Watch_dogs didn't look great ? It was flawed... but the downgrade was not any more "massive" than TW3.

1. Is doesn't have Ubisoft or Microsoft on title as well, so it is all fine.
2. Watch Dogs looked AND RAN a trillion times better than this technical mess.

Game is amazing and that's a fact. Downgrade and false advertising is also a fact:

Only pc gamers are complaining.

Console gamers call it optimization lol

Downgrade so ps4 can get a steady 28fps lol

That digital foundry video is funny.

Both console could barely handle 1080p 30fps

Xbox benefits from dynamic resolution fps wise.

Why do people think apus are good for long term gaming?

I hope this gen lasts awhile. It will be sad & funny to see the performance. Open worlds with great graphics will be killing consoles.

Check minute 5:45 for a different pause menu and loading screen. This seems like the real PC version. No the PS4 version on a PC.

downgraded if you fuss and obsess over everything, or one of the best looking open world games ever created if you don't

I couldn't agree with this comment fast enough, Sir. Good work.

Wow...This game looks amazing regardless of the platform of choice. Really getting sick of the articles screaming downgrade when clearly it's a damn good game regardless and looks better than 90% of the games out already. The game may have (IMO) minor issues here and there but those issues really don't detract from the fact it's a beautiful game with an amazing world and mechanics and on top of that those issues will be addressed in future patches.

Good Job CD Project and keep up the good work. Don't let idiots bring you guys down. It's the best game you guys have ever made and I and many others are truly thankful that you gave us a damn good game easily worthy of 60 dollars.
