The Witcher 3's Possible PS4 and Xbox One Exclusive Features Found in Leaked Design Documents

Today a whole batch of design documents for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been leaked (apparently through the hacking of a Google Drive account of a developer), and they included quite a bit of interesting information.

DualShockers won’t publish most of it, because it includes enormous stpoilers (including the endings), yet a document about the alpha version of the game included some nice non-spoilery information about possible Xbox One and PS4 exclusive features.

Surely sony or MS will want some exclusive features for a high profile game like this.

If this is true then at least hoping those will be timed exclusive.

CD Projekt RED recently confirmed that they won't support Plattform exclusiv content in The Witcher 3:

Content and features are two different things. What they meant there is that there won't be exclusive quests, weapons, stuff like that.

Mr Pumblechook2589d ago

The rumours were true... CD Projekt is a PAY TO GIMP company. They accept financial incentives to gimp the capabilities of a game they are making.

PS4 can use voice commands with the PlayStation camera.
The Witcher 3 includes voice commands for Xbone but not PS4.
We all understand about paid for exclusive content but one manufacturer should not think it is acceptable to pay money to gimp features of another console.
After making so much fuss about how it is wrong to produce exclusive content, for CD Projekt to turn around and do this makes them hypocrites. It starts a dangerous precedent for the gaming industry and they and Microsoft should be ashamed.

Not confirmed yet for the PS4.
They should. Let's make some noice to get them.
Map tracking for touchpad like in Assassin's Creed.

I'm so sick of seeing Xbox get exclusive voice commands. I remember using voice commands in the freaking SOCOM games on Ps2; it doesn't require a massive amount of set-aside resources or a magical Kinect. Also, PS dev kits have supported simple integration of voice controls for quite a time now.

We have none other but our selves to blame for the worsening state of the games industry today.

We are quickly and surely approaching the time where we will be paying $60+ for a severely gutted game on disc only to have to pay for the remaining parts as DLC.

Additionally, it will be even further divided by paid 'exclusivity' between those who are willing to buy them, then after some time making those parts available for all other systems as DLC.

They will be making one game in many parts from the start in order to accommodate this new blood sucking, money whoring trend we, the gamers are helping into making them more comfortable day after day to push and set as standard.

RIP Single Player and day one complete games.

I'm done, you guys can continue with your pointless bitching about voice commands and whatnot.

Oh boy why do I have this feeling that if this turns out to be true. It's going to be this all gen sigh!

But still exclusive content has to draw a line somewhere.

JBSleek2589d ago

If you read you would know they are talking about using the Smartglass, Kinect, and Lightbar and not exclusive content.

MasterCornholio2589d ago

The developers said that the content would be the same on all platforms. So nobody has to worry about exclusive or timed content. PC will provide the best experience while next gen consoles will probably provide a good experience as well.

JBSleek2589d ago

If you can get this game on PC.

AznGaara2589d ago

With the big "feature" being it's the only place where your saves will carry over from the first and second game :)

MasterCornholio2589d ago

I hope they take advantage of the track pad for manipulating the map. I loved that feature in AC4 and in FF14 I use the trackpad to target enemy's in tricky situations.

You know, though I like news, posting what someone "hacked" is not really news, its stealing information and then running with it. Sorry, but this alone just turns me off. IN a round about way you are aiding criminal activity.
