CD Projekt RED claiming they've already maxed on the PS4/XB1 before release

Uh, no s***?

Have you guys not seen the wolves that this game can run?

Of course they've already "maxed" the PS4/XB1 versions before release, because they make their games for PC first and then port them to consoles. Not the other way around.


Both consoles are using x86, an architecture that has been around for ever on PC. If you think developers will need years to find a way to "optimize" their games on consoles like they needed when they had to work with the Cell and so on, you are clearly either delusional or putting way too much faith in your consoles.

But, hey, if you repeat it again and again, it sounds better each time! Optimization! Optimization!

It's only maxed because they haven't figured out how to hide 2D backgrounds to reduce the poly counts.

That's with PhysX (hardware accelerated) fur simulation. You won't get that on consoles because PhysX hardware acceleration doesn't work on AMD's GPUs.

Optimization means console hardware will magically get more powerful!

Sure, developers may make better use of "optimization" as time goes on, but it won't be very significant at all.


Eh, we'll see. Honestly, I expect Naughty Dog's game will blow TW3 (PS4 console version) out of the water.


That's probably only true because Naughty Dog exclusively develops for Sony on their console, in this case PS4.

Therefore, they have no choice but to get extremely good at using it.

Third party devs have no such incentive and it would in fact be a waste of their resources to do so.

I only mention this so it is clear that their expertise with the inner workings of their sole development platform does not make CD any worse than Naughty Dog.

They may even be better if TW3 can stand on par with something Naughty Dog does on its home turf.

Anyone who believes that PS4 games won't get any better looking as time goes on, is lying to themselves.

That's a concept I've never understood. Lying to yourself never helps anything.

Of course devs are going to get better at developing for the PS4, and of course games will look better as they learn the system.

Pretending not to understand that, might make some of the trolls feel better now, but don't they care that they will look like fools when the time comes?

Saying a console has reached its max capability serves as a good PR trick. Epic built hype for each Gears of War game by claiming they were maxing the 360.

The Witcher 3 is an open world game though, and that's where console limitations will show their limitatons fastest.

I'm very interested in seeing comparisons between BF4 on PS4 and PC, and what PC is needed to surpass the PS4 version.
