except for the parts where that's exactly what he said? they will get a little more horsepower out of it with the new dev kits, and Xbox is easier to develop on in their opinion.

Here's something more recent than that reference:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-18-witcher-3-e3-gameplay-demo-combat-was-deliberately-easy-cd-projekt-says

"It's actually easier to develop for Xbox One for us because we're PC developers. So everything we do on PC is for DirectX 11. And Xbox is also based on DX. So for the rendering side it's a more natural progression for us to go to Xbox."

Considering DX12 is X1 only from a console perspective, this has big long-term implications.

No
Here's a quote from him


"But we anticipate being able to do 1080p on PS4 a little bit easier than on the Xbox."

what parts didn't you understand? where does PS4 having a better GPU deny that CDPR thinks Xbox One is overall easier to develop for?

"It’s not like they would open up new hardware or anything – there’s nothing new in there," Török cautioned. "It’s new ways to do something. Both companies are already using all the knowledge they have from previous products to make the API tailored to games … so I expect that they will do something like, ‘OK now you can do this; it’s extremely risky – only do this if you know what you’re doing! But you can do this.’

"It will happen, eventually, but right now we are preparing for it."


"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," Török noted."

"It's actually easier to develop for Xbox One for us because we're PC developers"

Honestly this is getting ridiculous now im starting to think some devs are trolling for reactions at this point.

This is an article from last year, what's the point of bringing this back up?

Is it some attempt to counter the news that Witcher 3 is 1080p on ps4 and 900p on xbox one right now?

Because that would actually accomplish the opposite:
Witcher 3 is 900p on xbox one, despite being easier to develop for.
