Fro_xoxo2769d ago

makes sense..
If you want a lot more out of the game, you'll have to pay for it.

I'll be content with the console vers.

gameseveryday2769d ago

Yes. the console versions should be fine but just like many other open world games out there, the PC version is going to be a delight. The possibility with user generated content like mods are amazing.

Not downplaying the consoles in anyway, but the true graphics potential will be made possible on high end PCs.

hazard17remedy2769d ago

Its obvious that the PC version will be the best, with top notch graphics and possibly, mods...

I will play it on consoles, because that's where I feel comfortable of playing, but I look forward to mods on PC. I've done the same with Far Cry 3... Played on Xbox 360, but played with MODs on PC

WCxAlchemist2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

But i will enjoy my Console version from a 60inch Samsung smart tv from my Lazy boy. Trade off evens it out 4me

Str8Chaos742769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Yeah because a PC can't use a controller or be hooked up to a TV /s.

GameNameFame2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Best Graphics possible - High End PC.

Console streamed line experience with Full HD- PS4

both has its benefits.

nowitzki20042769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )


I game on my 55" LED 3dtv with my Custom made PC with a GTX 970 that blows my PS4 away. I love my PS4 but you should see how great even 10 year old games look on this thing.

ziggurcat2769d ago


"Not downplaying the consoles in anyway..."

yes, you are. you're downplaying the PS4 version by singling it out.

LordMaim2769d ago

@nowitzki2004: Obviously you've forgotten what gaming looked like 10 years ago.

nowitzki20042769d ago


OK 8 or 9 year old games like tf2....

starchild2768d ago

Crysis is 8 years old and it still looks better than some of today's games.

mikeslemonade2768d ago

This game is getting a watchdogs treatment. They're trying to get all versions similair. Which that is dissapointing as a PC owner.

BC_Master_Haze2767d ago


Doesn't seem like the watchdog treatment.

I wonder if this game will even hurt my rig. Witcher 2 hurt alot of peoples rig but this one seems not to be pushing things as much. Right now im gaming on one of my cards i turned the other one off because im getting more than 80 fps on ultra for all games on one card. I'm just wasting graphics power at this point i need something that's going to push it.

sssb2768d ago

After seeing pc requirements for The Witcher 3, I think my pc will run this game nice and easy at lease better than consoles versions, but of course I'll get this game for pc and ps4 I just want keep playing it till metal gear solid 5 came out in September.

PudgeyBurrito2769d ago

:/ Why do people expect games that are in development to be perfect? The soul purpose of development is to get the game made and running. Fix the bugs you can find and ship. Some bugs will come later as coding is a crazy world and anyone who codes knows this. Reporting on bugs they most likely know about is ridiculous. The words Alpha and Beta don't have the same meaning as they once used to an i'm starting to see why in the past you would never get to play an alpha or beta build but in some cases it's used as early access now a days or for stressing. I hope this trend dies.

yarbie10002769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Maybe because a lot of games recently have released in the same state that they were during alphas & betas, with poor optimizations

PudgeyBurrito2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

I disagree but I gave you a good bubble vote :)

You missed my point. Those games are just released to early and that's obvious and typically the company knows about the flaws and ships anyway. Trust me, Dev's know more about there games then we do and they have a list of the bugs. If the game is silent or embargoed till the last day before release typically that's a sign either the game sucks or it's a bug fest and they do it so it will have a chance to recoup development costs.. *Cough* Sim City *Cough* which is bullshit and people need to not buy from these's devs or in some form show this isn't acceptable clearly.

What I am stating is people report issues on beta builds even when the developer knows about them like they will be released that way. This is what internal testing is for and alpha and beta tests. This is an article telling us about a bug when the game is still in Beta. This isn't really news in a way. It's expected. These kinda bugs usually take prescience over in game bugs as it construes the whole game and not just a part or a mechanic.

Palitera2769d ago

Bad frame rate and low resolution didn't stop the greatest game of all time from being a masterpiece.

sorane2769d ago

Yeah but that was back in the 90's. Times have changed. What was fine for Ultima 7 20+ years ago isn't fine for games today.

Fireseed2769d ago

Question is if that's an issue with the developers. Or the console manufacturer for their middle of the road lackluster hardware.

BitbyDeath2769d ago

The Last of Us was only 30FPS on PS3 and is considered as one of the best games ever made.

Just saiyan

mamysozn2768d ago

Yah but good frame rate & high resolution with great game play will make a game masterpiece.

Palitera2768d ago

That is where I disagree. In fact, to reach 1080p at 60 FPS they have to sacrifice so much system and human resources that I really doubt it would be a masterpiece.

spacewarrior12769d ago

are they planning on remastering the first two games for PS4 ? as a PlayStation gamer i'm not buying Witcher 3 until i can play the first two games. hopefully an announcement at E3. its so annoying below average games like Darksiders 2 can get remastered but games that actually deserve a remaster don't.

sugawalls2769d ago

They've already said they won't do it. Either build a Pc or ... cry

spacewarrior12769d ago

PC lol. get your facts straight they have said they are considering a Witcher 1 and 2 remaster but want to get Witcher 3 done first. when they do announce i laugh in your face.

HammadTheBeast2769d ago

Why'd you ask if you already know then?

MysticStrummer2769d ago

...or shrug and play another game, which is what the vast majority of console gamers would do.

JohnyONE2769d ago

Remastering Witcher 2? Are you joking? Even now this game can kill most new pc's with ubersampling...

pyroxxx2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Why would they,.. Witcher 1 and 2 are shitty games

Edit: maybe not shitty,.. but not really good,.. Fighting system in 2 improved tremendously ,..but it is still shit

bananaboats2769d ago

DAFUQ!?!?!?!?! you need to slap yourself with a glove covered in herpes.

hazard17remedy2769d ago

Please, stop. It's clear like the sky in summer why you got one bubble

Two-Face2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Shitty because they were not on your platform of choice? Atleast you got the cinematic games to enjoy watching for a few hours, before you lay them on your shelf to gather dust for eternity.

moegooner882769d ago

Look what you did now, you made Two face cry.

Seafort2769d ago

Then Witcher 3 will be shit as well by your standards.

It's a very similar game to Witcher 2 with a lot more open ended world to play in.

Please name a better open world game than Witcher 3 on any platform?

For me there is no better for RPG than Witcher series but I'm a PC gamer so I'm biased as I've played all the Witcher games to date.

Baka-akaB2769d ago

Then do yourself and the world a favor , get out of the hype train , dont get the Witcher 3 ... so you couldnt fake being surprised at the similar gameplay and start trashing it .

poor_cus_of_games2769d ago

@two face. I assume that you are talking about ryse.

styferion2769d ago

Well.. just by looking at the effort this developer has put every gamers should've been able to appreciate The Witcher series even if it's not their taste.

But not you, you're shit. And you just make that known to all who read your post.

slappy5082769d ago

lol these are PC devs, you're lucky you're getting witcher 3 on consoles in the first place, if you can't play the first two on PC go read the books ;)

nitus102768d ago

You should know that the Witcher 2 came out for the Xbox360 as well although the original came out for the PC.

Basically the developers are PC devs, however the consoles they are aiming at now also have a PC architecture and they don't have to worry about lots of different modules since everything is known hence they can program to the metal.

Basically the developers are predominately aiming at medium (includes PS4 and XB1) to high end PC's and while it would be difficult to determine the ratio of medium to high end PC users that purchase their game. Of course they can get PC sales figures, however it is very easy to determine the console sales of their game.

ArchangelMike2769d ago

I agree CDPR need to remaster Witcher 1 and 2. Especially Witcher 1 as it is very dated now. Witcher 2 stands up to most games by today's standards. However it is very unlikely that there'll be a remaster. CDPR will move on to the announced Cyberpunk game, or at the very least begin working of The Witcher 4 - Ciri's story.

Baka-akaB2769d ago

You need to realize that while you're missing out without the first two games , each game is a stand alone adventure and not your regular trilogy ...

Think in terms of "Robin Hobb's Assassin Apprentice" and "Fool's Assassin"'s books , where you have the same hero at various stage of life , and in multiples adventures , not sequential and direct sequels like Star wars 4-6 or 1-3 .

But if you wanna miss out on a great game with a self suffiscient and contained story , till you get everything (if you ever do) , it's your loss

Redding1112769d ago

2nd books out later this year. awesome books

Still need to remove some games of my PCs to go through witcher 2,

Antifan2769d ago

Dude, i just bought the entire collection on steam for $12. PS4 don't need anymore remasters.

starchild2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

What I find funny is I constantly see people begging for the first two Witcher games to come to PS4, but at the time those games came out on PC all I heard from this group was how PC doesn't have any good games.

ArchangelMike2769d ago

I don't think anyone has ever said PC doesn't have any good games. PC has the biggest library pf games. Most simply prefer the console exclusives that are not available on PC.

jznrpg2769d ago

A few dummies in every group, they don't speak for the whole.

klarnet762769d ago

I don't get it. Why developers trying to achieve maximum graphic fidelity if only "handful" amount of players will be able to enjoy it. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love the way the game looks but I would not spend a penny to upgrade my rack to run it properly. Thats why i will enjoy the f..k out of it on my ps4.... btw I don't even own pc(just mac for my music production). Hail all the gamers no matter whats your weapon of choice

Seafort2769d ago

It's called future proofing something console gamers will never understand as you can't upgrade your consoles and the games won't be backwards compatible to play at a later date on a new upgraded console.

Go blame your overlords Microsoft and Sony for not giving u backwards compatibility.

_-EDMIX-_2768d ago

I see....what PC title that required 3.6TFLOPS released last gen exclusively to PC?

nitus102768d ago

Well you can play console games from the 1970's through to today by emulation and I think most console gamers are aware of this. If that is not future proofing then I don't know what is.

As for backwards compatibility that is what held me back from buying a PS4 since I have PS3 games I am still playing. Eventually I will get a PS4 when I can see enough games that will give me the impetus for buying one (I am very picky).

Hassassin2769d ago

Why make something great if only a few will notice?
read it out loud and maybe then you'll get why this is a dumb question.

Baka-akaB2769d ago

What's so hard to get ?

The witcher 1 , for various reasons , took a while for everyone to be able to run it at max settings with great fluidity , but it was awesome to see the game stand the test of time and be replayable as an actually beautiful game , not some classic that look ultimately like crap two year later . It always looked good , and kept looking good for the decade it was released in . And even more true with Witcher 2 wich pushed graphics to an astonishing level .

We know the lambda gamer wouldnt revisit some titles if they aged badly . Hell it's what publishers gambled upon with the hd remaster craze on all platforms .

AndrewLB2769d ago

A handful? Where do you get that idea?

According to last month's Steam Hardware Survey, over 35% of PC's running Steam have a graphics card more powerful than PS4. About 50% are more powerful than Xbone.


Keep in mind there are 125 Million Steam users with 8-9 million online at any given time.

MysticStrummer2769d ago

So "high end PC" simply means a graphics card more powerful than PS4 and XB1?

Nope, it doesn't.

3.6TFLOP is the performance of the PS4, consoles are 2x the performance of their listed specs... sooooooo.

Your own links shows that MOST don't own enough to even run The Witcher 3......

sorane2763d ago


"3.6TFLOP is the performance of the PS4, consoles are 2x the performance of their listed specs... sooooooo."

hahahahaha no it's not. It's less than 1.8 tf and you don't need a PC anywhere near 3.6 tf to blow away ps4 graphics. That quote isn't even about the ps4 or anything close to that. You're totally taking it out of context yet again.

That attitude is what has held gaming back for the past 8-9 years.

Muzikguy2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

The thing I don't understand is why, since PC devs try to push as much as they can, are console devs "lazier"?! Instead of pushing hard like the PC guys they cater to the lowest common denominator and release half finished products. That's what baffles me. CDPR has a sale from me on this game!

nitus102768d ago

PC devs trying to push as much as they can? Well that is fine but if you are in the business of making money you support the market that will give you the most money in sales and that market is what would be classed as the medium end PC market. The high end support is just frosting on the cake.

Just supporting the high end PC market only is a great way of loosing potential sales.
