Great interview, can't wait to get my hands on this game :)

Just preordered the game from Best Buy

Enemy2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

Already preloaded on my PS4. Unlocks in 30 hours. Bring on the 1080p/60fps.

Is it bad that good resolution and framerate is basically exclusive on ps4?

GeraltofRivia2550d ago

there is a thing called pc gaming that has good resolution and framerates. also resolution that goes way beyond 1080p

Edit: console wise. Dont kill me witcher

@geraltofriva i dont mean to sound rude or anything but considering my $400 ps4 runs this game as good as high end pcs which hold gfx cards that cost almost a third of my whole console is prety sad they need to nerf pc parts prices i like buying pc stuff too but theyre so expensive when comparing facts like the one i just did. Look at the pc requirements for this game the recommended parts are very intensive especially that core i7 which costs $400 alone! :S

@ GeraltofRivia: Except they confirmed you're gonna need 6GB of VRAM to run this on your PC with PS4's settings.

"i dont mean to sound rude or anything but considering my $400 ps4 runs this game as good as high end pcs"

hahaha No it doesn't. A high end PC will be running this at 1440p+ with better textures,aa,af,framerate etc at the very least. Setting just not possible on any console. You need to learn more about technology it seems.


I want whatever you're smoking because it has made you completely clueless. 6gb Vram is for better textures than the PS4 could ever dream of. The PS4 version is probably pretty close to medium PC settings. You also need to take some time off from posting and read up on technology since you also vastly overestimate the PS4s power.
