Saber Interactive found a way to get The Witcher 3, and all the expansions in a single cartridge.
Remember you will be able to have much smaller assets since at the most the switch can do is 1080p. That should help with the size issues
I think this game will be 900p docked.
This isn't remotely realistic.
Lol switch doesn’t deserve third party games. This gonna be sub 720p docked.
Alright there armchair devs.
It was 900p on base Xbox ... I would imagine 720p docked might be more realistic
Looks like crap either way
Look at other switch games on digital foundry for comparison. I'm hoping for the best but 900p is not realistic, even native 720p isn't realistic, unless assets are massively downgraded or entirely swapped out and redone.
So... did anyone click the link to this story where it tells you specifically that it will be "dynamic 720p" (up to 720p) and the handheld maxes at 540p (quoted directly from the Witcher 3 twitter)
https://youtu.be/veomOFo9A0... after seeing the GDP Win 2 Running it, i have no hope for this port unless the wolfenstein 2 port team (Panic Button) took care of it , they should port Crysis while there at it , And the Metro Series
720p on tv isn’t that great, but 540p handheld is fantastic. I think most people buying this game will be playing it on the go.
Yeah with bland detail.
Must be using that elite 7zip compression.
theres lots of switch games that say online download required , better have a Hefty Micro SD
If you had read the Article, you would have the correct answer. It clearly states that the whole game fits the cartridges, including the expansion.
This game fits all on a 32GB cart. You'd know that if you actually read the details in the article instead of just the headline and made assumptions.
read the article first.. it really makes you look less of a fool
Well there are cartridges with various sizes. Some distributors choose for 8GB or 16GB variants to save a literal buck. I'm guessing this one is using 32GB with lower textures, video and audio files.
Well when you are using so low level textures it will take less space
I remembered the game was struggling with bugs and frame drops on the PS4 when it was released. That game´s size was around 46 gigabyte with a 1080p resolution. Now several patches later that is around 20gig without the DLC the game is a stable 4k HDR experience on the PRO for a sacrifice of 70 gigabyte. Now we are to believe that this game will run stabile on the Switch with a limited space of 32 gigabyte and we´re expecting 720p docked? This will be hilarious to follow ;D
My PC version is only around 30gb, there has been a serious lack of use in compression in games this gen from alot of developers
40.04gb on X and the Pro version is not 4k, its 1920x2160 checkerboard to 3840x2160 @ 30fps. The X is Native 4k @ 30fps or 1080p @ 60fps depending on the graphic option.
What level of witchcraft is this
Witcher witchcraft *wink's and does double handed point*....... .... I'll see myself out.
The textures are like 100p now.
Some of you people, just like to bash the Switch! The video of the footage is from the Switch and it looks great!
uh no it dont so blurry its ashame wait till digital foundry gets hold of it lmbo
I don’t think you understand what a portable system is.
Guess. 720p is blurry...what are you 11 or 12 years old? Its not blurry, your just a fanboy. Its also on a 32 GB memory card! I doubt you even have a Switch. I do, and an X1X and now a PRO. I like GAMES, FANBOY!
It's funny when you say people are just trying to bash the Switch then INSTANTLY go into a fanboy comment. How can you be so unaware of yourself? The irony is too much. It doesn't look "great" by any stretch. Try playing on a modern PC. It looks "passable" because it's being ported to a tablet. You drones are insane.
Now this is some sorcery . The best game this gen and best dlc also on a cartridge .
be careful with that claim. Nintendo fanboys will crucify you for calling TW3 instead of BoTW as "the best game this gen"
Yeah true, but what i mean is a graphics powerhouse like the Witcher 3 on a single cart with all DLC not some cartoon stuff like that Zelda thing.
Lol and everyone said it couldnt be ported. Anything can be ported, itll just look and perform much worse if its on weaker hardware. Great news since the game is a very long slow-paced rpg. Graphics shouldnt matter much on handheld.
Nice for Switch players.
I'm hoping for the best but that trailer was severely downgraded. Normally I don't care for graphics as I buy everything on switch but I'm not too sure about this one. Hopefully, they've gotten it to perform nice and stable.
Laughed so hard when I saw the announcement, the most insane one imo. Pretty cool to see it even if it does end up looking like shite
https://youtu.be/veomOFo9A0... running on A GPD Win 2, i feel thats how bad it will be
it will be better than that, but obviously far from max settings on pc.
Its confirmed 720p dynamic. You do realize, the Switch can go anywhere you want to take it, it has it's own screen, and weighs 10.48 ounces. It has more memory and is faster than the Wii U. In a handheld. So hate all you want. I will be picking up the Pro, when it comes out.
Its confirmed 720p dynamic means it goes down and up the res with 720p being the best it gets. As someone that owns a Switch I do realize that it goes no were since it does not fits any pockets and the analogues are super easy to damage, I rather use any other of the portables I have.
CD Projekt Red is very pro consumer and very Anti-DRM (they made GOG.com ya know) They will pay the extra money and have it on a full cartridge.
more game play of it running on a GDP Win 2 https://youtu.be/9J_vQiXsDH...
It runs at dynamic 720p and they threw out all the textures. I'm not surprised.
Old news but Nintendo did say they would expand the cart size up to 64GB https://www.theverge.com/20... By now it must be cheaper to make since that article is 1.5yrs old. I would love to see big carts up to 64GB
Looking at the comments here makes me rethink even coming to this website...
