Witcher 3 on Consoles Will be 30fps Max, Probably Sub 1080p

@RoboCopISJesus: Looking at the post in this thread it appears you are wrong. Other then you and about 5 other terribly delusional hermits I don't see anyone agreeing. The more screenshots being posted the more my point is proven.

Is there any way to download it without a torrent? Just direct mirror download?

Easily on the level of Witcher 3 it's not even debatable.

Well,the main character is a teen so maybe that explains why the facial details are flat.

This is from in-game cutscene btw

I went to gamersyde and searched for the Witcher 3 video . I have download manager so it gave me the option to download it in 1080p and 60fps when I selected video quality . There was also a direct link (that doesn't require any software) , someone had posted it in other thread but now I can't remember . You should google it , you'll find it since it's there .

PS4 version confirmed to be 1080p by the executive producer from CDPR

1080p/60fps

It is a linear corridor shooter made exclusively for PS4 and I'll wait for DF's analysis (ehm Killzone 1080p) . Witcher 3 is first true next gen game and it's open world .

Also dont let the "inengine " trailer fool you people its no different from a tech demo or non interactive cinematic cut scene, using assets that are not in the game as you play. ND are known to downgrade the retail from E3 presentations.

they are known for winning all the graphic awards every time they release a new game too.

Only on consoles because consolers know nothing but consoles. Almost all major gaming review outlets are console oriented so there again bias. Games like Uncharted 3 cant even hold a candle to a game like BF3 graphically.

a little old... its from june, I think the devs decided that they will sacrifice resolution to be able to provide better quality and stable framerate

"This follows an interview conducted with The Witcher 3 visual effects artist Jose Teixeria at gamescom by World’s Factory, in which he said that the console versions of the game would “probably not” make 1080p."

The PS4 may not be able to provide a solid framerate at that resolution without some sacrifices to graphics quality. They are working on it, but dont just in a fanboy rage claiming it will be 1080 when the dev's themselves state “probably not”.

Less than that.

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.

Most gamers (casuals) don't give two shits about 1080p and don't even know what the hell 60 FPS means.

I'm primarily a PC gamer and even I get sick of hearing about this shit.

If a game is fun...play it.

30 FPS? Sweet cinematic experience awaits!

Only available on consoles.

I hate how Wii U gets a free pass for being a weak piece of shit. So much so that sheep hide behind PC to bash PS4/XB1's power. Hypocrisy on this site is criminal.

Wii U was never meant to be a graphic powerhouse

Neither is the PS4. Well I guess thats a lie otherwise they would never be touching the resolution and FPS like they try and market it.

You really think most pc gamers would rather have Card Hunter, Starseed Pilgrim and Kentucky Route Zero Act 2 instead of the Last Of Us.

I was replying to what you said end of story.

Well, to find that, they first have to be released on consoles first. I mean Minecraft is always topping charts on console sales and before releasing on console it was shit, niche, poor budget PC game, right?

Now go and cry somewhere else.

Did you even understand my post? I thought it was pretty simple. Why would those games need to be on console to find that out?

Minecraft was hugely popular before going to console. The games I mentioned here aren't even remotely popular on pc so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that pc gamers would rather have Last of Us or RDR instead.

And how was I crying? I'm replying in a rather civil tone to someone who told me to fuck off.

Did YOU even understand what I was saying. Yeah, you are at least smart enough that I'm referring to the hypocrisy of consolites through my example of Minecraft. Your pathetic attempt of cherry picking three games won't change the fact that just because these titles are Indie in nature they can't beat the likes of TLOU like movies. You have been owned. So, yeah you are crying now.

Again, Minecraft was hugely popular before going to console and that's why consolites hated on it just like why hermits hate on Halo, Uncharted, TLOU and any other popular console game that's not on their platform.

These 3 pc exclusives which were used by a hermit as ownage are not even remotely close to Minecrafts popularity. The unpopularity of those games was the reason for bringing them up. The fact that they were indies had nothing to do with it.

Why is TLOU called a movie game btw?

No, I'm not upset that someone is "showcasing how the PS4 is soooo weak" like many of the trolls would love to say....I'm fucking astounded that anyone would look at that pic....or play Infamous SS and say it looks like shit.

How fucking pompous ass jaded pixel hungry asshat never satisfied do you have to be to get your rocks off belittling a game that is actually as pretty as Infamous.

I can see it now....someones going to reply "But I:SS doesn't look pretty" just to downplay the fact that I'm right when saying you really have to be a complete jackass to not be satisfied with a game that looks like Infamous SS does....or at least belittle it like and nit pick at it.

Yeah, Infamous SS looks great. I played the first infamous (ps3) and quickly fell out of love with it. The game play is soooo boring and repetitive. Just not my thing. I can see where it may appeal to some people. If the Witcher 3 runs at 30fps on the PS4 then they'll need to dumb down the resolution to get it closer to 60fps. If they don't do that, the game will likely still play good enough.

In other news.....PC can't play Bloodborne in 1080p....or any "p" for that matter.

So...not like it's worth gloating over.

Rofl, for a PC gamer you get surprisingly butthurt whenever the PS4 gets exposed for being awfully weak.

I guess if thats the cool way of saying "You sure are against ppl hating on graphics that really are that bad" then I guess you're right.

PS4 has good enough graphics for me....Infamous and other games proved that.....not my fault my system of choice has nothing going for it but really really pretty shit games.

But if PC only has "really really pretty shit games" then why has PC more AA/AAA games than consoles? Plus the fact that over 90% of console games are also on PC. And let's not forget that you said that you've been primarily a PC gamer for the last decade, I wonder why you'd play primarily on PC when all it offers are "really really pretty shit games".

These "AA/AAA" games PC gamers keep talking about get rated on a far smaller scale than console games and multiplats. When a misc RTS PC exclusive gets released on PC, it gets reviewed by a quater of the sites a PS/XB exclusive like Uncharted or Halo would. Sure, it might win some awards on PCGamer mag, but PC very rarely gets big budget exclusives. Crysis and Star Citizen... thats that. Even Chris Roberts says this basically.

For example..

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/europa-universalis-iv-res-publica

PC exclusive, gets a 78 metascore. That's by 4 review sites and 1 user review.

In contrast, a console exclusive..

http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/the-last-of-us

Gets a 95 metascore. From 98 review sites and 1,590 user reviews.

Console exclusives are reviewed on a different scale. It's about as valid as saying a Youtube video with 150 views that has 4 likes and no dislikes is more liked than a video that has 1 million views, 11,000 likes and 500 dislikes just because the former has no dislikes at all. If you get me. PC is a computer, an open platform. It leaves both indies and smaller studios open to release game after game on the platform resulting in more games. No quality control. Just more games regardless of quality. There are the gems though. And of course there are big name PC exclusives like WoW and Dota, but you know what I'm trying to say here.

#286 Posted by comptonst88 (287 posts) -

All this craze over 1080p is ridiculous. Ive played Assassins Creed 4 on PS4 at 900p before the 1080p patch and couldn't even tell the difference. Besides, they might be pushing for more detail and effects over resolution. Because the more you push effects and detail, the more of a toll it takes on the hardware so you might have to bump the res down a bit. There are always small sacrifices that have to be made when putting games on fixed hardware.

#287 Posted by Wasdie (50003 posts) -

I don't know where this conversation went (i'm not going to read all of the replies), but I'll address the OP.

A sub-1080p 30fps Witcher 3 on the consoles sounds about right. It's a damn largescale game and even though the PS4/Xbox One are capeable machines, CdProject Red takes no prisoners when it comes to pushing graphic fidelity and complexity of their games.

For the record I'm expecting that the system requirements are going to be pretty high and maxing out Witcher 3 on even a $1500 gaming PC with the latest stuff may be difficult to do.

The Witcher 2 was only demanding if you enabled Ubersampling.

And let's not forget that you said that you've been primarily a PC gamer for the last decade, I wonder why you'd play primarily on PC when all it offers are "really really pretty shit games".

These "AA/AAA" games PC gamers keep talking about get rated on a far smaller scale than console games and multiplats. When a misc RTS PC exclusive gets released on PC, it gets reviewed by a quater of the sites a PS/XB exclusive like Uncharted or Halo would. Sure, it might win some awards on PCGamer mag, but PC very rarely gets big budget exclusives. Crysis and Star Citizen... thats that. Even Chris Roberts says this basically.

For example..

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/europa-universalis-iv-res-publica

PC exclusive, gets a 78 metascore. That's by 4 review sites and 1 user review.

Except you just linked the DLC, not the actual game. Here's the correct link at 87....oh and hm look at that, 34 reviews.

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/europa-universalis-iv

5 reviews and 30 user scores

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/giana-sisters-twisted-dreams---rise-of-the-owlverlord

lol...getting desperate!

Lol! Desperate is trying to use 2 hour budget games against the likes of sports games like Madden.

Weakest retort of the day winner is you.

@Cranler: You brought up Gianna Sisters and Madden...no one else did. You're the only one who attempted that ridiculous comparison, just like your ridiculous notion of combining all consoles into one platform.

TL;DR: You're ridiculous, and everyone knows it. When is the last time anyone actually agreed with anything you're saying?

For example..

1. How about gamespot? Why does PC have more aaa/aa exclusives (and total) games at GS then? What is your excuse for this?

2. Most video games are multiplats. Most multiplats make it to PC. And are better on PC. This is one way how PC gets the most AAA/AA games, we are great at taking games from multiple consoles. Blame the devs on this. They love that extra profit even if its "minor".

3. Why do they have to be big budget? Divinity is AAAE and amazing more so than big budget titles I've played all year.

4. PC has less magazines so of course it is going to have less reviews at MC< this is a MAJOR CON as consoles get fanboy review padding to pump up averages. Popularity/Scale =/= Quality.

PC exclusive vs console exclusive. Do you think both games should be weighed equally?

PC platform vs console platform. Pitting pc vs 360 would be like a country attacking another country that's embroiled in a 5 way civil war.

Is you every fucking day here. All I see is you losing every argument you off-topic into while defending your alt Huggles. People post objective information and you refute it with opinions. What an idiot.

Those "shitty" games (in your opinion) are aaa-aa,... just like how shitty arcade, wii, kiinect, and sports games on consoles can be aaa-aa. Deal with it. Consoles are behind.

Nope. Not how SW does it. Not how GS, Gamerankings, or MC do it.

Only by your rules. We don't care about Cranler rules. Srry bro.

Why do you keep bringing up PC vs 360? It's 2014, Cranler. Try comparing PC to Xbox One or PS4.

Actually those pie charts and revenue articles typically compare console vs pc vs mobile.

You bring up the rules but can't make a defense for the rules.

Just making an example that you chose to ignore the point of.

Never said those game were shitty. Don't put words in my mouth.

1. Link

2. Not really relevant and pc gamers will typically spend more to get a better experience

3. It's a $40 game that was crowdfunded so it's not exactly the $5 budget games I speak of or have referenced earlier

4. PC Gamer doesn't even bother to review most of those niche pc exclusives
