According to this interview, 30fps is what they're IDEALLY pushing for, meaning it might not even be a steady 30fps. Regarding resolution, CDPR says that the possibility of 1080p is a "probably not".

From the interview with CD Projekt Red's Jose Teixeira

Ideally, we’re pushing for 30 frames per second. The resolution, honestly, it depends; we’re working on it, we’re trying to get it as high as possible. If we can make it at 1080P, sure, but I don’t know if it’s going to make it. To be honest, I really don’t know. Probably not. But for sure, we need it to run at a smooth frame rate, so at least 30 FPS.Read more at http://www.worldsfactory.net/2014/08/20/the-witcher-3-probably-not-1080p-on-consoles#vFVm6ITmAtRfz2dE.99

A game like The Witcher 3 I would be fine with 30FPS. Doesn't really matter to me though because I will be getting it for PC just like the first two.

As long as it's a steady 30FPS that's fine.

No surprise here. Have you seen the game? It looks that good and it's open world. Good luck getting that at 60fps on these consoles.

This type of game is best played on the PC

Not surprised. High end PCs are quite a bit more powerful than the "next gen" consoles.

i want 100+ more than that

I wouldn't be surprised if you were right.

Well I have the first two on steam and gog, so PC is where I'm getting it.

This is of the few games i would get anyway, but i would be very disappointed! 1080p at stable 30fps is the mininum acceptable this gen.

Your crying will not change the fact that the PS4 is a much more powerful console than the xbone

Why not? the PS4 should be able to archieve 1080p if the xbone is curently at 900p, of course assuming if the versions have parity in frame rate and effects.

Isn't the ps4 the fastest selling console of all time?

Wouldn't that indicate that the exact opposite of a short gen is going to happen?

Depends. If the consumer is demand 1080p 60FPS and the current gen can't provide then we will see a new line of consoles in the near future.

Don't think the PS4 will be 1080p. Dev said "probably not" and devs are usually overly optimistic.

More than that actually, we're almost 1 year in already. Games start arriving in 2015 finally so I'd give it 5-6 minimum, but they will struggle graphically after just 2.

#26 Posted by farrell2k (5824 posts) -

Playing multiplats on consoles is like taking a bath in dirty water. Why would anyone do it? It makes absolutely no sense...

#27 Posted by heretrix (37324 posts) -

Lol.

Great franchise though. At that resolution, it should be perfectly fine to play and it SHOULD be played.

I know that they said that but I dont really understand whats holding the PS4 version back, the GPU alone should be able to push enough pixels to bring it to 1080p. Again assuming the console versions have parity in frame rate and effects.

Maybe the framerate is really bad on the xbone version and not on the PS4 version. Then I would understand that they would keep it at 900p and to stabilize the frame rate at locked 30fps.

#29 Posted by Gue1 (9584 posts) -

the very least I was expecting was 30fps/1080p on PS4. Because as much as 3rd party's try to deny or or avoid the comparison the PS4 is more powerful than the Xbone and that's an undeniable fact. If the Xbone can do 900p/30fps then the PS4 should be able to do more by default.

No surprise. TW3 looks like a heavy game and the new consoles don't have the hardware capable.

There will never be a console with 60fps as a standard.

1080p on the other hand should be at this point.

If it's 900p on xbone and not 1080P on ps4 then you know you know MS paid dat money for parity. CDProjekt is A C teir developer and infamous still looks better so it's all good.

I really do wonder how people can be this stupid.

#35 Posted by lundy86_4 (43047 posts) -

Steady 30fps and close to 1080p, and i'm good. I'm grabbing it on the PS4, and after playing The Witcher 2 on the 360 (eek), I think i'll survive.

People like 'Pray_to_me' already crying about poor optimisation.

Even when peasants don't throw the 'optimisation' word, we still know that's what the underlying key word is.

lol if CDPR is a C teir dev, than Sunker Punch shouldn't even be called a dev

lol, they just are in denial how weak their consoles really are in the grand scheme of things. My GTX 760 has nearly 50% more pixel fillrate and has double the texture fillrate of the PS4's gpu.

That probably has more to do with the even increased population we have today.

Perhaps. I actually meant 3 years and 6 months or less. But we'll see.

#42 Posted by GoldenElementXL (2840 posts) -

I don't know how this is a shock to anyone. Look at the consoles specs and do the math. Anyone who thought they were getting 1080p/60fps is delusional. There were even some Cows here hyping 4K. I gotta get my hands on whatever they are drinking..

Whether that's true or not, I'm not sure how that would negate those sales.

#45 Edited by MiiiiV (366 posts) -

I'm getting it on pc but it's not surprising that they went for more bells and whistles instead of higher resolution on the consoles. 30 fps is acceptable for this kind of game. It's much worse when shooters, platformers and racing games run at 30 fps.

#46 Posted by ironcreed (14083 posts) -

That's fine. The game is absolutely massive and has a lot going on, so 1080p and 60 fps is not expected on my end. I'm sure it will look and play great, even if it ends up having a few drops here and there.

How did you manage to fit so much butthurt, damage control and stupidity in one post?, it's astonishing.

#49 Posted by silversix_ (14128 posts) -

Disgusting. This is a true next generation title, the first of its kind and the so called next gen consoles aren't even able to handle it... Look at 360 and how well it ran Oblivion (real next gen for 06) and these two can't handle witcher 3. Now its pretty much guaranteed that im getting this on pc and hopefully it doesn't wreck my 570/2500k too much
