    @MrV

    Fair enough thanks. (you get a plus from me if that help)

    So Ironsoldier, it seems the idea that it doesn't have an effect on console gamers, hence their lack of outrage, is a little wide of the mark.

    Although now this has come to light it will be interesting to see if people now have an issue with it or stand by their previous stance.

    I think everyone is quite clear on the subject, however as with anything there are many different levels of outrage, ranging from very little to full blow out, that is the beauty of the human race we are not a hive mind.

    And it's quite clear I am referring to your PSN claim, I myself have not seen this so I cannot say for sure if it is true or not, but surely if it true that's surely a bigger impact than this downgrade?

    And yet there are very few who care.

    Common sense suggests that every single gamer values gameplay ahead of other factors. Yes, that even includes the so-called 'Glorious PC Master Race' that certain salty types here like to reference so often.
    And yet here we are on a story about graphics with some people ignoring the downgrade due to the game being fun to play and still looking great. And others being salty.


    Do explain your meaning because snide inferences aren't conducive to constructive debate.
    :lol: Please tell me you don't see the irony of this comment coming from you, a person who is known for snide digs, it seems you like to dish it out but can't take it.


    who are being most dismissive on this issue are those who are least affected by it, i.e. console-only gamers.
    Really but...

    According to the comments of at least two people here including a site moderator CDPR are still now advertising The Witcher III on the PlayStation Store using old pre-downgrade screenshots.
    So which is it? Are console gamers affected by it or not? As IF this is true, surely that is effecting console gamers more?

    @IronSoldier

    By which I mean that maybe those who are not fussed put more stock into gameplay than graphics?

    There has been a downgrade clearly but it's hardly a crime, even less so when the game still looks good, and is fun to play.

    It's quite telling that those who are being extremely salty on this issue are the ones who tend to bash consoles the most.

    The game still looks miles better on PC so I don't see what the issue is?

    Pretty much that you are crying over "CDPR apologists" I mean just because others don't make such a big deal over the stuff you doesn't mean you should cry over it.

    I'm glad you are laughing at me, means you have stopped crying over this downgrade.

    Anyone who claims PC gamers are cheap obviously don't know what sales are.

    I have gone digital only this gen and the amount of games I bought at launch is not as much as the games I got less than 20 in sales in fact

    Full Price Day One:
    Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack (don't judge me) FIFA 14, GTA 5, Diablo 3, PVZ Garden Warfare, Bloodborne.

    40 or less
    Battlefield 4, Assassins Creed Black Flag and Injustice (this was part of the 10 upgrade scheme and all the PS3 versions went to between 20 and 30 so I bought all 3 and upgraded all 3 for 30)

    20 or less
    Infamous Second Son, Driveclub, TLOU, Metro Redux, Transforners Rise of the Dark Spark (again please don't judge) TWD season 1&2, The Wolf Among Us, Grim Fandango, Minecraft.

    10 or less
    GOT, Surgeon Simulator, Trials, Worms Battle Grounds, Crimsonland (?)

    Are they? Apologies then not a great example.

    However there was an improvement on the graphical front at least from 1 to 2. And I believe on ND made a big deal of their desert level on U3.

    But again apologies for the poor example.

    Edit: although I stand by my point I have removed the links in my original post.

    So again if consoles are doing so badly.

    Why do we have a quote in this very article saying without consoles they wouldn't of been able to of given this game the same budget without consoles?

    Surely if consoles were so bad and PC was so good then why couldn't they get the same budget for the same game but with no console port?

    Maybe you should read my comment again then?

    A) He/she claimed consoles hold back graphics, but as you just confirmed they don't.

    B) This claim is proven to be rubbish further due to the lack of graphical limit pushing games on PC that do not have a "console version holding them back"

    C) And my personal favourite the fact that all PC's hand various graphical settings including low, and since very few games set on low look better than PS4/X1 versions (for now at least of course PC tech gets better) that further backs my point.

    @williamarthurfenton

    But how does that stop a game that's going PC only from doing so?

    It just seems a little salty for you to blame consoles rather then maybe the actual platform itself.

    With so many different hardware options, and having to cater for so many different settings it's just not worth pushing hardware.

    Also if you think consoles hold graphics back think again. Look at launch PS3 games made in 2006 and then look at TLOU.

    Even compare Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2. Massive improvement, and why, because the developers and tools got better, yet the hardware didn't.

    Blaming consoles is simply an easy. We also keep hearing how PC gaming isn't dying, but if it can't get developers to make games that push hardware to its limit because it won't make money it can't be in that great of a state.

    If they hold back graphics then why are we not seeming amazing graphics on PC only games?

    Crysis was the last game to really push PC's to their limit. 1 game in 8 years?

    Yeah it's definitely consoles holding graphics back.

  • Mr-Writer 20/05/2015

    @Suarez07

    It wasnt all PC owners but you can't deny that there are a few on here who last gen poured petrol onto the console fanboy fire.

    Despite them not doing so much now, the damage is done. There will always be console fanboys but they just seem to of gone into overdrive.

    And I know it's popular to blame Sony, but at the end of the day, the 360 had a huge amount of dick fan boys, now the PS4 does.

    Both the early popular console. That to me says that there are fanboys who are just fanboys of the best selling console rather than the actual console they are playing.

    Sad times.

    I'm getting tired of all this 1080p vs 900p bs.

    Who the fuck cares! DF articles are meant to be about the tech behind the game for those who want to know how it's works.

    Instead it's used to throw shit.

    PS4 owners, the X1 version will play just like yours so get over yourselves.

    Resolution shouldn't be that big of a deal.

    But I guess after years of having PC owners look down on console owners telling us 1080p matters I guess it was only a matter of time.

    Next it will be telling us it's all about 4k.

    9/10 on this very site (and many others) suggests this game was more than graphics.

    Well those who have played it have been impressed.

    Oculus is very much like a PC, for those who don't do compromise.

    Morph is again like its console, it works but doesn't set standards. But it's lower entry and easy set up means mass appeal.

    If the masses take to VR that will help Oculus

    So whilst it don't need morph I bet it helps build a market.

    @sizu-sizu

    How did the effect the story? Plus whilst the gameplay was improved, it wasn't changed, the mechanics were the same.

    It's not like the PS3 version was panned but then when the PS4 version came it became a brilliant game.

    All 60fps did was make already great gameplay tighter and in some ways easier.

    It didn't make it a whole new game.

    And I'm still waiting for an example where a
    PC only game pushed tech to its limits.

    The nearest I can think of at the time was Crysis but that just pushes graphics.

    @sizu-sizu

    But you can also have a poor story of poor graphics.

    But a game doesn't have to be 60fps to be great. Sure it can improve gameplay, however if a game is great at 30fps then it hasn't been held back.

    But the games are excellent regardless.

    Gameplay and story are not effected by technology and they are both more important than 60fps and 1080p.

    @Gemini42

    Sorry I might not be getting my point across the right way.

    I'm not saying PC doesn't have great games. But what I am saying is if you look at GOTY awards they are mostly multiplaform or exclusive.

    This is despite being on hardware that is "holding games back". But if they are holding them back then why do we not see more PC only games (which are not held back by console tech) dominate these awards?

    Because imo whilst they mabye great games they don't push tech, because whilst tech does improve games it's not vital, for example TLOU is a fantastic game on a 9 year old platform.

    My main point being consoles don't hold back gaming it's just PC tech is developed quicker.

    But just because the tech is there doesn't mean developers are ready to use it to its max potential.

    Funny that, because the console market is huge and a bigger market means developers can make more games as they make more money.

    And if consoles are hindering PC's then surely every PC exclusive would be GOTY every year? Something console exclusives have dominated for a good few years.

    Please point to my post where I twisted what you said?

    Do PC's not need upgrading in order to keep up with the latest games?

    If not then I am sorry I got it wrong.

    If I got it right then what's the difference between upgrading and buying a new console to play the latest games?

    And trying to act like I'm "harssing you" simply because I have called you out on your BS trolling.

    @lenslok

    Hmmmm but all your old PS3 games will still work on a working PS3. PS4 games will still work on a PS4.

    Sure future support will dry up, but again if you don't upgrade your PC then the games you can play on that in the future will also dry up no?

    And not all old games will work I have plenty that don't work on modern OS's and some that don't work on modern hardware full stop.

    Of course in the future that will be less of an issue, but some speculate that with consoles becoming more like PC and less customerised that the games from this gen will work on future gens as it won't require emulation.

    I dabble in PC gaming myself and have no issue with it being the best platform. But for me I'm time and spare cash restricted so consoles offer me more bang for my buck as it were.

    I don't want people thinking I don't like PC gaming as I do.

    The fact that PC's need upgrading and that can be just as costly as a new console shows that PC's tech also has a short life span.

    Also the fact that the PS3 and 360 are both 9 and 10 years old.

    How many PC's built/bought 10 years ago would play todays games with no upgrades from 2005 tech.

    I'm willing to bet not many if any.

    Another poor attempt at trolling.

    Thank you for your comment. Please try to put forward a counterpoint,
    Well I shouldn't have to, it should be up to you to back up your point with valid facts and information.


    if you feel so strongly about what I said. Try not to take it word for word, that a games console is weeping salty tears for starvation of new games.
    Again you make this very silly claim.



    Me, trolling...lol. No time for that, Mr, but I'd counter by saying that your short post seems more trolly, than anything I've written here.

    Keep your labels to yourself and keep walking, Troll Hunter.
    You clearly are.


    First here is a link to all the games that have or are due to be released during 2015

    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2015/01/14/2015-video-game-release-schedule.aspx

    Notice how there are a lot? Hardly "crying out" is it?

    Now had your point been exclusives, you would of had a very valid point, but considering that you didn't, and the other fact that you also mentioned this game, which I doubt if it was released on console would be an exclusive, means your are obviously talking about bother 1st and 3rd party games.

    Of course they don't have as many games released on PC, but they are hardly so few releases this year (or even the year before) to say that they are crying out. Unless of course you are referring to the WiiU which in comparison to the PS4 and X1.

    I look forward to reading your counter argument which I am sure will be full of facts that back your original point. Which if it does I will apologies and withdraw my "troll" label.


    But I have a feeling I won't be doing.
