Witcher dev: No major power difference, Xbox will get more powerful over time

"I don't see a major power difference. The memory is very different but I already said that before. Pure computation power, if you just measure that, there's no major difference."

Both new consoles are like PCs anyway, he added. It won't be until teams really delve into low-level optimizations that the true grunt of each will come out.

"The Xbox One is pretty easy to understand because not just the hardware is similar to the PC, but everything like the SDK, the API is really similar to what you would find on a PC. On PS4 this is a little bit more complicated, but I personally worked on PS3 before."



"I saw how Microsoft opened up certain parts that they hid before from developers," he said. "They opened them up, like, 'OK now you can have this back door, and it's risky but you can do this and that...' This is how developers learned a little bit more and more every step. From Microsoft it was a good way to do it to always let the developers do a little bit more."

This topic pretty much has everyone raging on the ps4 board.

The problem is what he says goes against what the majority of other developers say so its difficult to say who is actually telling the truth.

It also seems like a very one sided comparison, which is odd for a multiplatform developer.

Ps4 will still be the lead console.

Edit: TC. ;)

Anyways, as for the topic - he's not the first to say such things, and I'd like him not to be the last, because like has been said, this 'difference' has been blown way out of proportion from some.

But at the end of the day, time will tell.

The Witcher devs were kings to Sony buyers, until this, now they dont know anything right?

I think the proof is in the games. Ryse looks better than anything on the PS4. Fifa 14 looks better. BF4 looks better even at lower res.

Theres something going on with the PS4 software. It adds blur or a fog to every game. Really hurts the image quality.

Telling as you are taking quotes out of context...

"I saw how Microsoft opened up certain parts that they hid before from developers," he said. "They opened them up, like, 'OK now you can have this back door, and it's risky but you can do this and that...' This is how developers learned a little bit more and more every step.

This in in reference to the 360.
