Source: https://twistedvoxel.com/the-witcher-3-complete-edition-size-resolution/

Dynamic 720p docked resolution, occasionally dipping lower, and 540p handheld resolution. 30fps. 32gb file size.

Next gen starts when Nintendo says so :P.

Instead of being a fanboy douche, how about giving credit where it's due? The whole game on a small cartridge, and a game that big and amazing running on a handheld.

LMAO.

Nintendo is the only company in history to go backwards in resolution and graphics.

That is just pathetic and sheep are still going to defend his trash.

@briguyb13: Handheld or not, 540p is just bad. I commend the developers for fitting the witcher 3 on such laughably weak hardware. No idea why anyone would spend their money on such an outdated console.

Do you even own a Switch, or are you PS4 only? I ask because those of us who have one tend to like the portability function of the system. Being able to play modern games on the go is a treasure.

I think it’s really cool that it’s even on the Switch at all. The Switch is a great system in my opinion and from what I’ve seen shown of the game running on it I think that it looks fairly decent. Would probably get it myself but I’ve got the game on the Xbox One and have already played through it and the dlc. While the game is excellent I’m not really itching to play through it all again, I’ve got too many other games to play anyway.

No, it's not. I can't imagine much (gaming related) that would be worse than playing The Witcher on a bus ride or something. Who would want to do that? A masterpiece you really have to put some time into and you want to play it on your way to work while dozens of people rub themselves against you. Shame on you. That's like wanting to watch a really great movie and instead of the 70 inch 4K TV you're going for a phone to experience it. Disgusting.

@briguyb13: Probably not since I'm not much of an achievement hunter :P. What gave me away? I thought I was a convincing lem. I mentioned halo, gears, forza, and 4k.

The switch is great btw, I agree about its portability and I'm enjoying it. I don't think the witcher is a good fit since it's so focused on story/atmosphere and it's also dark. That is quite different from what the switch is known for. Still good for those who want to play it on the go or switch fans who haven't played it before.

You're going to pay a price for the portability... we all know that.

If you don't like it, then don't buy it. If I hadn't finished TW3 twice already, I'd definitely buy it on Switch.

I think it's cool that it's coming out for the Switch. I don't know if I will get it - I had it on One for a bit but hadn't really gotten into it, but it's good to know the option is there. I think a lot of other games come first for me, though.

To me being able to switch from a tv to a smaller screen is nice. It's not so much that I take it on the go, just sometimes I want to lounge around my place and not be hooked up to a big, bright tv screen, I want to take the game wherever.

I get that some gamers really like games for the high-end experience - X-enhanced graphics and such. I mean it's nice and all, but to me that's not really the main focus of gaming. You can have a game look like it's from the 360 and it's still fully playable as long as the game itself is good. And having a game of at least that quality, on a hybrid, is still pretty dang impressive.

I would buy it again but definitely not at $60 cause witcher 3 is 4 years old and should have sold for $30. I have it on PC so I'll wait for $20. (Or maybe not)

Well, they ported Halo to the 2600 so why not Witcher 3 on a Switch?

They sure don't and by that time, we'll probably have a next-gen Nintendo console by the time it reaches $20/$30. Not like I'm missing anything since I do own Witcher 3 on PC & PS4. I just happened to love the series.

Yup, love having Doom on the go, portability goes ahead of graphics and even performance in some cases. Been wanting portable RE4 for years and now have that too, it's great!

That's petty impressive IMO. I'd give it a go if I wasn't TW3ed out right now. Started reading the books, though, and that's getting me back into the world...

Playing the game at the moment at 1080p, 60fps and ultra settings. Game looks absolutely stunning for a 2015 release.

I hadn't thought of that, but, yeah, that sums up my feelings regarding this. While there's no way in hell I'm going to bother actually buying "Witcher 3" on Switch, I'm fascinated by the thought experiment of getting a game like this on questionable hardware -- either graphically or storage -- in a shape even resembling the original.

People said this was impossible.

And yet, here it is.

Also CD Project Red are calling it THE SWITCHER on their website, and that's amazing.

I would be salty too if the console i said would fail, didn't, and then the console I said could never get witcher 3, did.

I would hate being so wrong all the time.
