Forums - Sony Discussion - Witcher 3 Dev: PS4 Is A High End PC, CD Projekt Happy With New Architecture

CD Projekt RED have always stayed true to their vision and this is clearly shown in their reluctance to release The Witcher 3 on current gen consoles and instead go for next-gen and PC. They are pleased with the PS4 as well, and quest designer Pawel Sasko revealed a lot more about the system to us in an exclusive interview.

“After the announcement of the PS4 many graphics programmers commented that Sony’s upcoming console is a high-end PC and I agree with them,” he said.

“The change of architecture made a lot of developers happy, including us. From a technical standpoint, the biggest disadvantage of PCs is customizable hardware in almost infinite number of ways. That’s why working on PS4 gives us comfort that every gamer is going to have a quality time with The Witcher 3.”

He also revealed why they didn’t show the game during the PS4 reveal event where the entire world was watching and could have proven to be a great marketing tool for the game.

“It was obvious for us that the reveal of new console was a great moment to show our game. But on the other hand, the most important thing about the whole event was PS4 and its features. As we expected, all the games and console itself drag out player’s attention from everything else,” he revealed.

“The Witcher 3 is our beloved child and we want the world to know how good the game will be. It might have been a bit too difficult to get the attention of all the gamers while so many good titles were being announced during Sony’s press conference. So we chose to show the game separately.”

The game comes out in 2014 for the PS4, Xbox 720 and PC. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

i think games like the witcher 3 will profit most from the next consoles and i hope that this also means that we will get more games like that because i love these kind of games.



And yet another developer saying good things about PS4. Sony has done a good job it seems with the new console.  Hopefully nexbox gets the same praise.



Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 are two of the biggest next-gen titles that are on my radar, although I'll be getting them on PC.

Bbuuuut the mid-end mobile...

OP. It is the first time I get excited by a game from this franhcise... they are good? I mean the previous.

Yeah CD Red and while you're at it, give Playstation owners me included a chance to play your two previous games, huh? Especially condisering that Playstation is always the dominating console brand in your homecountry not counting PC as a gaming platform and it will most probably be the same this time around.

So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Am I the only one who get sick of this 'A High End PC' praise??? If a want a high end PC, I can buy it right now, but I want to see a gaming console from X720/PS4!!!

I think The Witcher and The Witcher 2 games are great, although the sequel might be easier to get into (I wasn't really a fan of the first game's combat, although it excelled in other areas).

The Witcher 1 is a PC exclusive and The Witcher 2 is Xbox 360/PC. In my opinion 1st are better than 2nd. Better story, better Geralt, amazing music. No fckin happy end. Dont forget to chect the books of The Witcher - they are also amazing.

Book's names/titles :

 

Blood of Elves

Time of Contempt

Baptism of Fire

Tower of the Swallow

Lady of the Lake

Sword of Destiny

 

  

 

My fav soundtrack from Wither 1 - love it.

I'd love to get it on a Vita, since we'll never get it on PS3 considering just how bad it sold on X360 :( Would be sick to play Witcher 1 and 2 on the go! Awesome games.

Books are also classics of the fantasy genre, absolutely top notch.
