Speaking with NowGamer yesterday, CD Projekt RED's Pawel Sasko discussed a few interesting details regarding how “The Witcher 3” is making use of next generation consoles, such as the PS4, as well as how these consoles will compare to gaming PCs.
Speaking on how “The Witcher 3” will be taking advantage of the special features that will be supplied with the PS4, Sasko insists that he does not wish to spoil the new possibilities that will be obtained with the system before Sony decides to come forward with this information. He also states that “The Witcher 3” will be available on all high and platforms once this title is released, which is expected to be the PS4, Xbox 720, and PC.
Discussing how next generation consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox 720 will compare with gaming PCs, Sasko states that “PCs are a platform with no generation life cycle and they evolve all the time. Even though it's been a much slower development than it was in the previous decade, PCs have always been more powerful than consoles, so it’s not a surprise that it will happen again. The question is, then, why developers don't drop consoles altogether.”
“The biggest reason, probably, is that there is a significant audience of gamers that prefers the style of console-playing to the PC. The fact that your game always works (if it's done right) and you don't have to update all your drivers every few months (and download buggy drivers sometimes) has its advantages.”
