Forums - Gaming Discussion - Witcher 3: The Parity Curse

The bolded quote does not make sense at all:


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a gorgeous looking game and CD Projekt are trying to deliver the same experience across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Despite their similarities, the PS4 and Xbox One do have some decidedly unique hardware features. How will CD Projek be taking advantage of the PS4′s unified GDDR5 memory architecture and whether they will be developing specific graphical features which they might have found to be possible only on the PS4?

“We always want to provide the best possible experience to all our gamers regardless of the platform and so we are not aiming to develop special graphical features for any of them,” Balazs Torok, Lead Engine Programmer said to GamingBolt.

And regarding the kind of anti-aliasing technology they will use for PS4 and Xbox One versions, Balazs stated that they won’t be using hardware based MSAA. “We are still exploring some options regarding anti-aliasing but we are sure that it will be some kind of screen space anti-aliasing solution and not hardware MSAA,” he said.

Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is due for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and releases in February 2015. For more on the game check check out our hub page here.

Good thing i'll be playing it on PC

Honestly, the PC version is the definitive game, so it's understandable that they aren't giving as much attention to optimizing for the consoles. It's a PC game first and foremost, a console game second.

I don't see the problem here. As people say, this is a PC game first, console second.

Why does it make no sense? They develop all graphical features for the PC (lead version) and the consoles get what they can run of that version (PS4 more than X1). Why should they develop specific features for consoles?

Yup, the bolded part basically is "Logic? Well fuck that!"

I bet PS4 will have 50% or more marketshare by end of 2015, RubberWhistleHistle bets it won't.

Hm... Mhm... What's the framerate again?

"Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence." - C.S. Lewis

People need to stop using the word "fanboy" in arguments. It makes you, and all gamers, look bad.

I will be getting PS4 version. As long as the game plays with smooth frame rate I am happy. Plus I know despite parity issue PS4 version will perform better.

Bet with MohammadBadir & ohmylanta1003: Wii U lifetime wont be 18 million+. Winner gets two months of sig and avatar control.

Witcher has always been a PC title first and a console title second. Most of the audience on the Witcher series is on PC so it makes sense that they are putting less effort in the console version

gamer logic: better graphic fidelity and upgrades are okay on my side, beside paying the same price. but exclusive content, or more stuff in the ce box on the other side is not okay, beside paying the same price

i like to on the internet these days :)
