Witcher 3 Patch 1.07 Will Fix Many Issues, Dev Defends Against Claims That They Prefer PC Over PS4/X1

CD Projekt’s Marcin Momot on upcoming patches for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

the witcher 3 wild hunt

Marcin Momot from CD Projekt has confirmed that patch 1.07 will be a big one. Patch 1.07 will be fixing several issues in the game. “The 1.07 is actually going to be a pretty large patch. We are already working on it. It’s not going to be too long before it comes out. Can’t talk about the detailed list of changes but it will features A LOT of fixes,” Momot said on the game’s official forums.

Players who own the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will need to wait more before they can download patch 1.05 as Marcin confirmed on Twitter that even though they are working on it, it’s not coming out this week. The delay has obviously made some fans angry who are now accusing CD Projekt of giving more preference to the PC players.

Obviously, this is not the case of preference as console patches have this tedious process of getting certified. Marcon defended against these claims by stating, “Consoles have some other issues (some are really time consuming to fix) and we want to make sure everything works as intended when released. We ask for a little bit more patience. After 1.05 there will be a huge patch coming up next (it’s already in the works).”

And finally, he reiterated once again that they have not abandoned the PS4’s frame rate issue. “As I wrote before, once we have some details to present, we will. We have not abandoned this issue – we are working on addressing it.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • *Also On PC

    Why hide it? CDPR have already outright said the best witcher experience is on PC. Go tell POS4 losers to suck a lemon. Their garbage console caused the downgrade in the first place.

    • Amith Thomas

      Their consoles were underpowered, there was a massive downgrade. Yes. Ok, now let’s move past that. It was unfortunate, but move on.

      “Tell POS4 losers to suck a lemon”
      No, fix the game on all the platforms you released it.

      As for fans accusing them of giving preference to PC players. Lol you all can go kill yourselves. They’re doing everything they can.

    • vishmarx

      that garbage console is responsible for the game being made and sold more copies than the pc but okay

    • Steve

      4 million copies sold, at least 1.3 million on PC. Thats a third. So either PC version is equal with Xbox and PS or it has sold more than one of those platforms.

      If you take piracy into account, the Witcher 2 was pirated about 4.5 million times for PC (according to devs). I’m not condoning piracy, especially against the good guys at CD Projekt. However, its clear that the PC version holds its own it terms of sales, and if you include pirated copies – then the PC version is the most played version across all platforms.

    • TotalCookie

      We don’t include pirated copies because it doesn’t bring profit. Who cares who plays it if it hurts the compaty?

    • vishmarx

      how many of those were from sales or free with cards?
      holds its own aint enough, 70%+of the revenue comes from console sales and thats what matters.

      the devs themselves said that there would be no witcher 3 if not for consoles, but youd rather play bad linear games that LOOK better than let the games BE better. because thats what the 30% revenue would let you have

    • Michael

      Well I doubt too many sales since it’s brand new, and free with cards isn’t really free since those card manufacturers still have to pay the developer.

      The Witcher franchise exist because of the PC, The Witcher 3 in its current state was made possible by the extra potential console sales. Both sides benefited from each other in some way.

      Before everyone goes into a piracy debate and argues how consoles are better in that regard, remember that piracy isn’t directly indicative of lost sales. Some of those pirated copies might have turned into actual sales, and a lot of those pirated copies would have never been sales in the first place. Also don’t forget that used console game sales hurt the industry just as much if not more than piracy. Quantic Dream said they lost between 7-14 million dollars in sales on Heavy Rain due to the used games industry.

    • ThePoetPyronius

      70% is just over 2/3rds bro. That’s 1/3rd per platform it was released on. Sounds about right.

    • vishmarx

      4m-1.3m=2.7 m
      does that look like 1/3rd genius?.
      xbox is a console too

    • ThePoetPyronius

      lol, yes? I said ‘just over 2/3rds’. 4m-1.3=2.7m, 2.7m/2=1.35m. So, yes, it looks almost exactly like ‘just less than 1/3rd’ as I said. I mean, seriously, it’s common sense that 1/3rd of 100% is 33.3%, so obviously 70% is 3.3% more than 2/3rds, ‘genius’, lol. Does… does your console not have a calculator? I’m so sorry. 🙁

    • Intra

      I can’t take anyone seriously who has a picture of the “pcmasterrace” mascot as their thumbnail, because at that point you know they were dropped as a child, but I’ll entertain it since I’m bored.

      You have no idea what you’re talking about, and you wouldn’t have even gotten the game if it weren’t for consoles, so ponder on that for a minute, and you’re free to google it and back up that claim if you think I’m pulling facts from my a**.

      I also find it funny a buddy of mine bought the PC version but had the issue where it kept crashing, and used any and all methods that were suggested across subreddits and forums, so he ended up getting it on PS4, and ya know what? He still enjoyed the game, so just please, next time, stfu.

    • Steve

      “You have no idea what you’re talking about, and you wouldn’t have even gotten the game if it weren’t for consoles, so ponder on that for a minute, and you’re free to google it and back up that claim if you think I’m pulling facts from my a**.”

      You’ve got to assume that if there were no consoles, then everyone would be playing on PC – without the downgraded graphics.

    • TotalCookie

      You can’t assume that. People want consoles because PCs are too much to bother with. No consoles doesn’t make them easier to deal with or make people more willing to.

    • Jason Storey

      People want consoles because they’re too dumb to run DVI or HDMI cables from their PC to their TVs and enjoy a closed market with competing systems, crap performance and large markups.

    • Legael

      And The Witcher series wouldn’t exist without PC gamers supporting CDPR since The Witcher 1 was released.

      Witcher 3 would have been released on PC but maybe not as an open world game like it is now.

      Next time maybe you should have some respect for PC gamers as they enabled the witcher series to be successful so Witcher 3 was possible on PC and consoles.

    • G3m1n1

      This guy gets it.

    • BloodHound7281

      Why should he show someone that’s calling him a loser respect? Would you? Also on PC needs to jump down off his pedestal because he isn’t any better than anyone else! Respect is earned, not freely given!

    • brascoboy

      Pc is better

    • BloodHound7281

      That’s a matter of opinion!

    • brascoboy

      Haha, sure kiddo…whatever you say.

    • vapidwolf1

      Don’t be an idiot all your life little boy,pc gaming has a multitude of problems that consoles don’t have only an idiot would believe otherwise

    • brascoboy

      I guess, If you don’t know what the (censorship) your doing. I suppose you
      could and probably would create problems building your own rig, but for
      us smarter people who know how to build things we do just fine. If you
      could only get past that hurdle you would be able to be on the side that
      wins.

    • BloodHound7281

      “Smarter people” when your car breaks down do you take it to a mechanic? When your house needs painted did you do it yourself? When you break a bone do you set it yourself? When your kid was born did you bring him or her into the world? Ahh so there are some things YOU smart people can’t do? You need to jump down off your pedestal because you’re no better than anyone here!

    • brascoboy

      what? are we still talking about pc vs consoles? i can’t tell. there shouldn’t even be this conversation anyway. it’s not even a point of contention. PS4 vs XBONE, absolutely. that makes sense. Console vs. PC? Apple’s and Oranges.

    • BloodHound7281

      I figured you’d say as much! Why badmouth console users because we chose a different path, it makes no sense to me nor does it make sense for console users to bash PC! We are all gamers and no matter what rig you use, it doesn’t affect me so I don’t care! But I do care when people make themselves out to be better than I because I chose something different!

    • klownk

      Different path ? Between 2 things, you choose the worse… That’s all.

    • BloodHound7281

      I chose what I enjoy, how does that affect you? I never bashed PC or its gamers I just get sick and tired of people thinking they’re better than me because I chose console!

    • klownk

      how does that affect you?
      Downgrade, 30fps lock, dlc, f*** gamepad that make the game unplayable with a mouse which is btw far more accurate than this f*** pad.
      You really don’t know what you talking about, so I will just ignore you atm.

    • BloodHound7281

      Pitty me pitty me is all I got from your comment! Lmfao!

    • klownk

      and in english ?

    • brascoboy
    • klownk

      I guess you don’t know how to use a computer.

    • BloodHound7281

      My you’re full of wit! Lmao

    • vapidwolf1

      Good grief what an inane comment

    • klownk

      900p 30fps it’s definitely not a matter of opinion.

    • BloodHound7281

      Yeah I choose to sit on my couch, controller in hand and game the same way I have for the last 30 years, so yeah bud its a matter of opinion!

    • millslane

      Funny thing.. Thats how I game on pc. I just do it with quicker loading time, high frame rates, high resolution, and jaggie free images.

    • BloodHound7281

      Yeah but constantly upgrading my pc would become tiresome

    • millslane

      I thought you only had to upgrade when you no longer find your experience enjoyable. Like in 10 years when you start a game and cam only get 10 frames per second. Why is it that you will be upgrading so often?

    • millslane

      Also, to be clear. The current Gen consoles are using hardware that was 2 generations behind when they hit the shelves. They “needed” upgrades they day the dropped. Did you reverse engineer, make a new cpu and write it’s drivers? If so, that’s a lot harder than upgrading a pc.

    • BloodHound7281

      Who cares? I can play every single game that comes out for my console without doing anything! I never bashed PC gaming or its gamers just sick of people putting themselves above me telling me I’m stupid because I chose console!

    • millslane

      Well generally people who choose a closed platform like console or mac think it’s easier to use because they are misinformed. Some might consider that to be dumb.

      What happens when you run into a feature you hate? There’s nothing you can do. On an open platform, others probably hated that same feature as much as you and produced a pile of alternatives for you to choose.

      For example, if you wanted to watch a movie that you downloaded legally from amazon on your television. On playstation, you would have to go out and get a pc to watch the movie,because the closed platform doesn’t allow this. On Pc you plug it into the television and play the movie with one of the thousands of available media players.

      What I consider dumb is that people pay money to own something, but are then told by the manufacturer that they aren’t allowed to do whatever they want with it. And the people still go back to buy the next model.

    • BloodHound7281

      I bought a ps4 for 1 reason, to play games and nothing more!

    • millslane

      Ok so enjoy your broken games then.

    • BloodHound7281

      Broken games, my games aren’t broken! How much money you have in your PC just curious

    • millslane

      That’s what this thread is about. If you don’t count my optional accessories like 6 hard drives, probably about 1200 bucks 3 years ago.

    • BloodHound7281

      No I was just wondering, I have a buddy with a gaming rig that cost upwards of 6 grand thought maybe that’s what steered me clear of PC gaming! Just wanted to see how much your rig, that is obviously superior to my 400 dollar ps4 was that’s all!

    • millslane

      If I wanted a lesser experience than I currently have, and still wanted to beat the ps4 I would type “300 dollar console killer” into Google and follow one of the guides. I would than use the extra hundred bucks I saved from not buying the ps4 and add more ram or storage.

    • BloodHound7281

      And no need to upgrade for 10 years correct, I could play every game on PC without doing anything more right?

    • millslane

      No need to upgrade unless you want to. The graphics of you machine will not degrade over time. Other graphics cards will improve, but yours will still be better than ps4.

      No, you can’t play every game on pc without doing anything. Dos games from the 80’s require dosbox to run unless you buy them from a company like GOG. They already include dosbox. If you want to play emulators, you need to configure the controls. Other than that everything should work without doing anything.

    • BloodHound7281

      I was just wondering because anytime I come across a PC gaming website after a release such as tw3 there seems to be alot of scrambling to find out if their rig will run the game and many others simply stating that it’s time for another upgrade, so they must have old rigs I assume! I game on console and that doesn’t make you better than I or I you! I’m not here bashing PC nor have I been negative towards PC gamers, I’m simply standing up to those who have found themselves on pedestas, believing they are better than me, that’s all!

    • millslane

      Most people asking those questions are on really old last generation hardware. As you may know, ps3 is over 10 years old. people who got into pc late into the last generation are fine. You already know witcher 3 doesn’t run on ps3, that’s why you didn’t need to ask. It does however run on ps3 Era pc hardware.

    • BloodHound7281

      I learn something new everyday! I honestly thought you had to regularly upgrade pc to have a good experience, my bad! My short experience with PC gaming was not good so I decided to stick with consoles, and they have never let me down thus far so all is good! Thank you for the info and good gaming to you!

    • millslane

      I just found this guys youtube channel and he basically tests old cheap hardware. He got Gta V on a 150 dollar pc. Thats half the price of a new wii u.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WjEoDHrawk

      Don’t get me wrong, its not stellar performance or anything.

      It goes to show though, that you most certainly do not need to spend 6000 dollars or even 600.

      Batman unlocks in a few, so I am gonna go get ready for that lol.

      Good gaming to you as well sir.

    • Sidiez

      To be honest Bloodhound alot of PC players got used to atleast 60fps during game and like to have the graphics maxed out. For instance i had a 2004 PC that was NOT a gaming rig that still ran games in 2014 BUT at low graphics quality and around 30fps. (Mind you Consoles usually get only 30fps and have the games Graphics reduced.) So what PC users might consider that “Its time for a upgrade” is certainly not the same as when a console player would say its time for a new upgrade. Not to mention that when you DO upgrade you can buy a graphics card for 200-300 bucks that will give you another 10 years of gaming at better graphics and frames then the consoles do.

      And i love consoles as well so im not saying that cause im a PC fanboy. I own every ps since the first one and a gamecube,dreamcast,etc. I still prefer playing JRPGs on the comfort from my bed so i use my ps3,4 for that.

      Oh and im playing Batman Arkham Knight…. the game is horribly optimized. They actually put a 30 frame lock on it that i had to edit out in the Ini file. So i get 50-80 frames on max settings and all Nvidia Gameworks turned on. Still i have a beat gaming rig so this is pretty bad considering and the average user will not be able to go above 30fps even if they take the lock off. Wait until they release a few patch improvement before buying the game guys.

    • BloodHound7281

      I appreciate your comment, see I never knew all this stuff so I’ll have to educate myself. Thank you for the info, good gaming to you

    • Sidiez

      Yeah no problem man. Also what i meant to say regarding the new Batman game is that i have a “beast” gaming rig and even i get 50-85 fps. Which is great by all accounts BUT considering i usually get 110-144fps at max settings on every game it kinda says alot about how poorly the new batman game was optimized. So people might have a hard time playing that game until they fix it up.

    • millslane

      I just bothered looking at system requirements for this game and arkham knight which comes out tomorrow. The minimum requirements are entry level hardware from q1 2012. This is what I meant when I said current Gen console hardware was a old on release. Tbh you can go online and buy 200 bucks or so of used parts to make a machine to run these games fine.

    • BloodHound7281

      Yeah maybe if I invested some time into figuring out how make a PC gaming rig it would be alright because last time I tried, total war I believe played fine then I bought mafia and his face wasn’t there ,went to drive a carcar and all that was there were wheels and a steering wheel, buddy did something and it was fine,then bought a world of Warcraft game and it wouldn’t work so I decided that was enough! All in all not PC savvy so I went with what I know works and is hassle free for me aka console!

    • millslane

      Fair enough. I switched over when my ps3 broke. I figured, why buy another one? It didn’t come without its complications, there’s so much hardware out there, and the numbers don’t mean much to a beginner. Over time, you pick up the knowledge and Google can answer every question because likely your not the only person wondering.

      I will never buy a console again. Nor will I upgrade until I want to run games in 4k. Maybe I will get a 4k display on black Friday. Depends on sales.

    • BloodHound7281

      You just opened my mind a bit and I’ll have to do a little research and see what’s out there! Even though we’ve been going back and forth I appreciate your side of things and thank you for not calling me a console peasant! This is what gaming community should be,even though we didn’t see eye to eye throughout the day my mind’s been tickin and in the end you broadened my horizon on the idea of PC, thank you!

    • millslane

      You’re welcome. If you have any questions that for some reason you can’t figure out, come back to this thread.

    • BloodHound7281

      Will do, and good gaming to you!

    • BloodHound7281

      Hey bud, I’ve been doing some research on PC gaming rigs and I’m honestly not repelled by the price I would be paying for an above par rig! Then I came across a steam machine and I was just wondering if my console brain kicked in and said that would be a better choice because you can upgrade them and It looks like a console on crack! Just wondering if you know anything about these machines before I do anything I’ll regret, or if I should stay on the path of getting a PC gaming rig? Your reply is much appreciated!

    • millslane

      Well, there are many choices on steam machine and they are not all created equal. Also most pc games are designed to run on windows, some can and do run on steam os, but the library is smaller by far. I think some steam boxes also boot windows.

      There is a small form factor for pc called mini itx. it can keep the size of the machine in line with consoles pretty much,but is obviously less expandable in the long term.

      The steam pc client has a feature called “big picture mode” it brings up an interface that allows you to Nvigate your library, store, settings,friends list etc with a controller.

    • BloodHound7281

      So all in all it would be wiser to get a pc rig right? These steam machines have limitations? Just asking because I’m not yet well versed in this area. When I was reading about these steam machines, they made it sound like ” hey console gamer, here’s a PC in your type of box”! And they said it was upgradable but if it was only upgradable to a point that would suck!

    • millslane

      Well, as far as how upgradable it will be will depend on the model. However, console users are the target market of the steam boxes. At the price though, I think you get more value for dollar from a console than a steam box, and I think that a regular gaming pc is the best value for dollar.

    • BloodHound7281

      Well I hope you’re proud of yourself millslane for you have opened a console gamers mind enough to get a gaming PC! Not going to ditch the console, but I am going to try the PC gaming side again thanks to you. Good looking out and good gaming to you! Oh and thank you for your opinion!

    • millslane

      Jesus Christ bore off,leave the guy alone

    • millslane

      No

    • vapidwolf1

      Yes

    • jesse

      I upgrade my PC less thank Sony or Microsoft upgrades their consoles; PC’s can last quite a long time.

    • BloodHound7281

      Yeah some other PC gamers on this thread steered me in the right direction. When I originally tried PC gaming back in the day I put total war in and it ran fine, then I bought mafia and my guys face was missing and the only thing you could see on cars was the drive shaft, four wheels and a steering wheel, so I upgraded it! After I was done with mafia I bought a world of Warcraft game i believe and it wouldn’t work so I needed to upgrade again and I thought from that experience, this is what PC gaming was like so I figured screw that! So some PC gamers shed some light on that for me and now I’m a little more educated on that area than I was eight days ago! Good gaming to you!

    • vapidwolf1

      Your such a spaz

    • millslane

      ;]

    • jesse

      Just because you enjoy something more, or have a preference doesn’t make it better or superior.

    • BloodHound7281

      Oops! Apparently I replied to myself when replying to you so here it is, I have never once said that my gaming preference was better or superior to anyone so your comment makes no sense! Think before you speak, because I have never bashed another gamer for their choice but I do stand up to those who do! Good gaming to all!

    • vapidwolf1

      Yaaaaaawwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnn

    • klownk

      Yeah, that the way I feel when I try your f*** consoles.

    • millslane

      If having more choices to complete the same task more effectively is an opinion, you sir are right.

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      How is it better?

    • brascoboy

      Pros for PC:
      1. I don’t have to worry about a game ever reaching it’s fullest potential because of my hardware.
      2. I know what my system is, because i personally did the research on hardware and built it myself.
      3. Games are actually created on PCs so guess what? They are going to be optimized on pc first.

      4. Although my rig is using standardized hardware that has been made to be compatible across the large expanse of computers, It’s completely unique because i can customize on exactly the way on want it to look.
      5. It does everything a PC does…Not just gaming
      6. Kodi(xbmc)
      7. The MODS!!!!

      Cons:

      It could cost you a lot more money then a console if you aren’t worried about cost, however if you are on a budget, you can make a better system then any next gen system for the same cost. so i guess this should also be listed as a pro. oh well

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      All your “pros” becomes completely irrelevant if you just want to play games on your PC. So what if your “rig” can run games better than consoles? If the Witcher 3 was made to be a Cel-Shaded game, which doesn’t require much processing power, i seriously don’t think it would matter! I do like mods though…

    • brascoboy

      What does that mean???? You aren’t making any sense. Games play better on PC. Games look better on PC. Games are moddable on PC. it’s fact. They are more powerful machines. Consoles are only better if you don’t learn so good and can’t build one, or don’t care about immersion or graphics or gameplay.
      If i want to play on a controller for one game and a mouse and keyboard for another, i can. Gaming on PC is simply a superior experience. End of story.
      I get why consoles exist, i do. I grew up on consoles but i wanted more and didn’t want to wait around til 2025 to play 2015 (pc quality)games

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      Games look better on PC. -Agreed.
      Games are moddable on PC. – Agreed.

      Games play better on PC. – uhm No; they’re the same game. Unless it’s PC exclusive
      It still doesn’t justify HOW it’s better than consoles

    • brascoboy

      Where do i start here? ok, so say that you are right,..console play is equally to pc’s when it comes to fluidity of the ingame experience, you admitted that in every other way pc’s are superior. how does that equal to consoles being better again? that doesn’t even make any sense.

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      You said it yourself. PC is “superior”, NOT “better”.

    • brascoboy

      Whatever dude

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      And if, by any chance, you still don’t understand what I’m trying to say, I’ll tell you this:
      I’d rather have a box that developers would push through its limits via optimization and hard work. They always find a creative way to make a great game with limited resources. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be innovation not just for consoles but for PC as well. So for people who brag about their machine doing more than the competition, why? Does it even matter?

    • Justin Zerbel

      Frame rate it’s all about the frame rate, Consoles have always been limited to 30 fps and maybe just maybe you get a call of duty that gets 60 if you are lucky. On pc the sky is the limit, You can get 120fps with no motion blur what so ever. In consoles you are limited to 30fps and a lower resolution which equals nothing but jaggies. But consoles do have their plus sides, Most developers prefer consoles because of piracy. Alot of games do not come to pc that i wished had, Like order 1866

    • klownk

      you just don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • John Jeffrey Tambanillo

      Let me rephrase that for you:
      “You” just don’t know what “I” am talking about!

    • Alex

      I game exclusively on PC and I can tell you that the PC version has its issues. Not sure how point 3 is even an argument, because while the game is coded on a PC, the optimizations are console bound. Seriously, I can’t believe it that this PC vs console argument persists. Who cares! You have a PC great, he has a PS4, awesome – enjoy the toys which bring you pleasure, screw this bickering.

    • ziplock9000

      I’d go as far as saying it’s glorious.

    • Raptor Gilbert

      tell that to the new batman game o_O

    • klownk

      I think you don’t have a good computer, right ?

    • BloodHound7281

      No I don’t have a very good computer!

    • Dirkster_Dude

      The developers in various interviews have specifically said the Witcher games would not exist without the consoles. So basically, you have it backwards. 1 of the main reasons: not enough PC gamers can run the game at an acceptable rate to make it profitable.

      You’re an idiot, what they meant by that is only because the sales they might have wanted wouldn’t be reached only on pc due to the high amount of piracy. If piracy was non existent they wouldn’t need to develop for the ps4 and xbox one.

    • Trevor

      It has nothing to do with piracy. Study after study shows zero correlation between piracy and a failure of an intellectual property. If something is popular on the market then it is also popular on piracy channels, meaning it makes less profit, but it still makes a profit. What they argue, which makes no sense, is that every pirated copy translates directly into a lost sale. Which obviously isn’t true, the vast majority of pirates pirate because they can not afford it otherwise, or simply, because it is free, as soon as cost is attached to it they forgo the experience.

      As for the PC, console debate; all game developers carry out market research before hand, to determine the potential size of its product penetration. That determines the amount of capital they can allocate to the production. The problem with the PC is that comparatively there are very few gaming rigs that can run such demanding games.

      For most people it comes down to cost. The console offers the promise of good, enjoyable games at an affordable cost. PCs obviously offer better capabilities but the costs involved simply put it out of the range of most.

    • xTheMercenary1

      I understand where you’re coming from but i mean you cant say witcher 3 was made possible because of consoles. It wouldve been made whether they were available or not. But to say something like that is just absurd where do people think the witcher franchise started?? On console?? not even

    • Dirkster_Dude

      I suppose that is fair because I think you’re an idiot for making assumptions about their motives. They said this game would specifically not exist and the Witcher Games in general without console versions being made.

    • xTheMercenary1

      Nope you’re still an idiot witcher 3 wouldve been possible without the consoles. Witcher one was pc exclusive, witcher 2 only came to pc and xbox 360, the witcher 2 was pirated more than 4.5 million times so if they were sales and piracy was non existant then they wouldnt need to worry too much. If you think that the consoles made the witcher 3 possible you’ve got something seriously wrong with your brain my friend.

    • BloodHound7281

      The devs never said tw3 would not be possible without consoles! They said tw3 as it is, would not be possible! They could’ve made it on PC alone and It would have been on a much different scale, aka much smaller. I takes money to make games and there is a lot of it in consoles as well as PC. So I applaud them going this route because the game is awesome! We are all gamers so why fight! You are no better than I nor I you! Good gaming to all!

    • xTheMercenary1

      I understand what you mean man, i’ve already told the other guy dont worry about arguing. Absolutely correct when you say im not better than you or vice versa, have a good one bro.

    • BloodHound7281

      I assume your a PC gamer? If so I thank God because I’ve started losing faith in the gaming community! I game on the ps4 and if you’re a PC gamer I thank you for not referring to me as a console peasant! If I recall correctly games are ment to be fun right? Good lookin out bud, and you have a good one as well!

    • xTheMercenary1

      Nobody is should be referred to as a peasant no matter what platform they play on, we play games for the fun of it not to argue all the time like a bunch of children. Yes i mainly play on pc, i can also guarantee you that most of the people that refer to console gamers as peasants are running some of the crappiest hardware around and are just trying to make themselves feel better.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Well, you’re still ignorant so I guess calling me an idiot is fair.

    • xTheMercenary1

      I cant be bothered man, lets just leave it here lol. I dont really like arguing, its pointless.

    • Fuhinsma1

      You wouldn’t be playing TW3 if it wasn’t for the consoles, yes it was developed on PC , mainly actually exclusively because programming.on a console is tricky to say the least… The console sales were needed to fund it….so sorry but you owe some small amount of gratitude to those who spent their hard earned cash on next-gen consoles.

    • BACE

      “Witcher games would not exist without the consoles.”

      Lol your idiocy is behind comprehension. They never said Witcher games because the first game was a PC exclusive and the second game came late on XB360 only so PC gamers are the ones who made CDPR what it is today, for TW3 they have to maintain a neutral stance of course but in reality consoles only caused them harm.

      First Rise of the White Wolf got cancelled due to several issues causing them a lot of financial harm and then PS4/XBONE versions of TW3 caused great issue of downgrade, so yeah so much for console support.

      They don’t lie when they say PC version of TW3 is the definitive one because simple fact it is ! The console versions are suffering because these joke for machines cannot run any decent ambitious game properly. They are like poor man’s entry into Dx11 era.

      And for delayed patches go blame M$ and $ony for their stupid certification process, it’s hardly a dev’s fault.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Well, I think you’re an idiot for reinterpreting the developer statements to suit your own version of what you feel acceptable. I’m well aware the first game was exclusive to the PC, but every game after that was on a variety of systems. It also doesn’t matter that Witcher 3 is the definitive version or not because it is irrelevant to what I said.

    • BACE

      Yeah and you peasants are allowed to interpret it as you like right ?

      When they made TW1 their studio was really small and totally unknown to gaming industry, they even didn’t had enough power to subscribe something decent like Unreal Engine and used a discarded engine from Bioware, that was the time when PC gamers supported them and made them capable of making their own engine (known as RedEngine) and TW2 then we kept supporting them with TW2 and that is why you got it on XB360.

      Maybe it doesn’t matter to you but if you ask the devs then they’ll tell you to go and pick the PC version, Damien Monnier said it himself on his Twitter as well as John Mamais in an interview, the reason I mentioned this is because console gamers shouldn’t blame CDPR for anything as there is only so much a developer can do, those so called next gen consoles cannot run a game of this caliber with decent performance so how it’s CDPR’s fault ? still they are trying their best to fix it therefore instead of blaming them you should thank them for trying.

    • vapidwolf1

      Stupid certification process there just protecting there assets,you clearly don’t know what’s involved get yourself educated son maybe then you can comment,also your comment that the pc version is the definitive edition is simply not true as only ten percent of pc gamers can run the game as the definitive edition which was the version cdpr were referring to how can it be,there are many many different types of pc that gamers use and the majority can’t just go into a store pick a game off the shelf and away they go,don’t try to pretend otherwise.

    • BACE

      Oh yeah ? then why you console kids blame them for preferring PC version ? just because they are rolling updates faster on PC right ? when they said themselves that this certification is a tedious process so it means they are tired of it themselves end of story ! You should learn to read before acting all educated figure to anyone because right now you just ended up looking like a fool.

      And don’t you start the same old argument of only the most expensive PCs can run this game at good settings, you should watch this video first

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGf4SVWEw2g

      A budget PC of same price range as of PS4 and XB1 can run this game at console level quality with much stable frame rates not to mention overclocking that hardware results in always higher fps, anything above that hardware and you’ll get even better experience than console versions so yeah PC is the definitive way of playing this game, of course for the best settings you need an expensive rig, you cannot hope to achieve everything in 400$ can you ? but even in this range PC version runs better.

    • vapidwolf1

      I have a very expensive tv 4k 120hz and it can run my console games 60fps it’s only simulated but you can’t tell the difference why all you 14 inch monitor peasants are squinting at your screens I’ll be enjoying my cinema style gaming experience on my top of the range 60 inch TV I can change every aspects of my games so that they rival an expensive pc, can play the witcher 3 in 3d if I so wish,I’ve got a gaming laptop with so called higher specs than my ps4 and it looks like shit,I don’t care what you tube says I have the evidence in my own house so no need to look at some crappy compressed video urggh.

    • BACE

      First the extra refresh rate can only mimic a smoother experience it’s not like you’re getting real 60 fps so in this case stop pretending. Secondly how do you know that I or other PC gamers own a 14 inch monitor ? just want to fulfill your desire of calling us peasants right ? no matter what you’ll do, it will be you who end up getting peasant experience in fact it’s quite funny that you invested so much in a TV while the actual machine outputting graphics on that TV is just an obsolete piece of junk.

      And please enlighten me how you can change every aspect of your games to rival an expensive PC ? I own two GTX 980s in SLI so I play several games over 100 fps, can you do that ? or does your PS4 output 4k native ? or can you tweak your games for extra quality/performance or mod them for something new or apply SweetFX for amazing post processing effects, the simple answer is no you can’t so once again stop pretending.

      And I don’t care what do you think about it, the guys at DigitalFoundary are among the most credible when it comes to meaningful comparisons so if you don’t care about them then it doesn’t change facts but it shows how ignorant you are.

    • Mandy

      They were paid money by Microsoft, a sizeable amount , to partner with XB1. PC is the only way to play this type of game

    • Dirkster_Dude

      I could believe you, but I don’t see any reason to change my mind. I will go with what the developers have stated.

    • Alex

      Link or it isn’t true.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      There is a paragraph preceded by the question: “Did the console versions restrict the PC version?” — Very first sentence of that paragraph says it all:

      http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-05-19-cd-projekt-red-tackles-the-witcher-3-graphics-downgrade-issue-head-on

    • neoharp72

      Yeah, that 80% piracy rate on the Witcher 2 is just an unbelievable show of support. The piracy rate of the Witcher 2 is the ENTIRE reason why it and the Witcher 3 are on consoles…The LACK of support from the PC community.

    • ShaneMcGrath

      Not quite true, The Witcher started on pc, So consoles would not have it either!

    • Jason Storey

      You are absurdly wrong and stupid to boot. PC users wouldn’t have gotten witcher 3 if it weren’t for consoles? Pretty sure me buying witcher 1 (pc only) got me witcher 2, which got me witcher 3 and none had a thing to do with consoles. Get over your infantile gaming system choice.
      Also: GOG is again, pc only, and helps finance a lot of what CDPR does… in other words: clueless.

    • Intra

      We got Witcher 3 because I bought it on consoles too. See how that works? Lol you pcmasterace morons. If it’s so good and consoles are so bad, why do you all keep complaining like little girls?

    • Jason Storey

      I do see how consoles work. You’re logically impaired ape-children. It didn’t exist, so you couldn’t have bought it. Your logically flawed argument doesn’t do anything except prove my point.

    • ThePoetPyronius

      You got Witcher 3 only because of the existence of Witchers 1 and 2. How could you honestly think you’d get a Witcher game on consoles without the existence of the PC games that preceded it? Better yet, what platform do you think was used to make all your PS4 games? It wasn’t a NES, mate.

    • brascoboy

      Your an idiot. PC version works flawless. I’m getting 60+ fps on ultra settings. Not that you’d know what that even means. It’s a great game and its best on pc. End of story. So how about you stfu. Your friend is even more stupid than you. Oh by the way stop whining about your stupid little patch.

    • Davidoo

      Thank you so much for being the reasonable one. I really can’t stand those people, tis the reason why I don’t engage in forums and whatnot.

    • Dynasty2021

      Dropped as a child?

      As in they made a stupid decision due to lower brain cells?

      You paid £300+ for a console that is more expensive than a PC after a year, and your console barely does 30 FPS at 1080p.

      Who’s got the lower brain cells REALLY?

    • Sidiez

      I own a ps4,ps3, and a PC. Yes my desktop is a beast and cost me alot more then the ps4 but the gaming expirience between the two is a no contest… it is not even close. My desktop destroys the ps4 in every which way possible. I get 110fps on ultra on the PC…. that will NEVER be possible on the ps4. Now dont get me wrong i love my ps4 and have been a playstation fanboy since the very first one came out and that will never change since i love playing JRPGs on my ps4 while laying on my bed.

      Now as for your friends “Crash” problems i dont know what kind of graphic card he has BUT the newer drivers for Nvidia have caused their GPUs to crash randomly. I had that problem but i live close to Nvidias office in Santa Clara so they installed a private driver on my computer to see if it will fix the issues and it has. Im not sure when they plan on releasing the driver to the public but i can say that 353.20 works amazing on my computer and i have not had a single crash since they installed it.

    • Sidiez

      Id like to point that the one good comment i read that has a point and isnt just some arguing gibberish is the fact that the PC has a huge hacking problem. Playing games online whos main income does not come from the online aspect = easy to hack and ruin the game for everyone else. For example GTA 5. There could have been some amazing online games that have been ruined by hackers. Its truly a shame that no one has figured out how to create a unhackable game.

    • DEVILTAZ35 .

      Many reasons could be behind the pc version crashing. Arkham knight for me crashes every 5 mins on windows 10 yet others have said it runs fine in windows 10. Computers hey lol
      When everything runs great PC’s are awesome but occasionally you do feel like throwing your GTX900 series gpu out the window for all the good it does in some games.
      In saying that Witcher 3 runs great in windows 10.

    • Guest

      Once again, this guy is sweating the PS4! He’s obsessed. The article is about both consoles yet here he is just sweating the PS4. Its so obvious that he’s really just a MS fanboy pretending to be a PC fanboy so he can bash the PS4. I’ve never seen a sadder fanboy in my life. He makes thousands of accounts to do this. This guy obviously has no life and is just obsessedand is beyond pathetic. Wow!

    • *Also On PC

      Not my fault both consoles suck and you are obsessed with defending your POS4 to the death Andyscout. Looks like you don’t have any response other than to scream “Xboner!” because your POS4 was insulted. How pathetic just like console software lineups in 2015

      Keep up that screaming and damage control. Xboner sucks and so does the POS4 :^)

    • Guest

      Why hide it? CDPR have already outright said the best witcher experience is on PC. Go tell POSbox losers to suck a lemon. Their garbage console caused the downgrade in the first place.

    • *Also On PC

      POSBox can suck a lemon just as much as POS4 owners

    • G3m1n1

      I like to use “FlopBox1” and “Flopstation4″….

    • *Also On PC

      Both are garbage. Guest over here can’t stand when his 30FPS4 gets insulted for the turd it is

    • Icaraeus

      Many PS4 games are 60fps

    • *Also On PC

      No AAA’s are 60FPS. Not one of Sony’s published games outside of remasters is 60FPS.

      Your console sucks :^)

    • Icaraeus

      Metro, Tomb Raider, The Last of Us, Mortal Kombat X etc are 1920x1080p 60fps on PS4

    • Jecht_Sin

      At least people can play games like Bloodborne in the “Flopstation 4”.. Here, have another petition to sign!!

      Oh, and how’s GTA V online playing? Did the cheaters ruin it already for you?

    • BloodHound7281

      And what makes you superior to console users?

    • lk kara

      It was never really a downgrade. The game looks amazing as it is, and I could not care even if there was a supposed :”downgrade”.. Most games that are coming out don’t even look as good, like Fallout 4. If only W3’s downgrade could happen to other games, then most people would be happy. Running the game at a high rendered benchmark from years ago and then having to adjust to today’s hardware is not a downgrade, it’s called reality and limitations.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Yeah.. Obviously the fact that it must run on a GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870 has no influence at all in the PC code. No, blame the PS4, which btw is even using totally different API.

      Are some of you PC suckers natural born idiots or you hit your head when you were a child?

    • *Also On PC

      No I’m blaming the POS4 and the xboner because they are underpowered and weak consoles dragging back the industry that affect the PC code as they have to make assets that can be run on such pitifully weak consoles and not reach their actual vision.

      You Sony shills are pathetic morons defending your underpowered garbage all day.

    • Alexander Yordanov

      Game runs even on a ATI HD 5770…

    • ShaneMcGrath

      What you say is true I am also a die hard pc gamer although I do own console as well, It always will be the best experience on the pc platform as it can be constantly upgraded to suit next gen games using latest hardware, But you need to learn restraint and show a little respect in the way you say it!
      Putting people down equals instant loss of argument in my opinion, Regardless of what it is you are trying to say.

    • Jason Storey

      People should show more restraint. You gotta remember the mentality of the people who can’t run games on a PC. You’re dealing with child-like beings who need coddling and encouragement, not proper humans, so be kind.

    • Louis Haack

      Not sure if you’re trolling or incredibly dense. So, what you’re trying to say is that people who don’t spend sometimes excessive amounts of money on a peice of technology, and instead buy something cheaper that gaming-wise, can do essentially the same thing aren’t proper human beings? Yes, pc games have slightly better graphics and fps than its console counterpart, but that does not in anyway, make pc gamers a higher, more evolved race than console gamers.

    • aroth

      Agree. Smart devs and smart gamers prefer the PC. There’s no point in denying it.

    • dan

      not that I care, but I googled “cdprojekt red says best witcher experience is on pc”……..and there isn’t one article that has the devs saying that. however, judging by the insane comments here by, what must be, rabid pc fanboys – I doubt truth matters much.

    • vapidwolf1

      Yeah and if it wasn’t for those garbage consoles you wouldn’t even be playing the witcher on your pc

    • Alexander Yordanov

      And if it werent for that polish author in the 80s, there would be no Witcher.
      If it were not for us PC Gamers, you wont be playing Witcher 3…

    • vapidwolf1

      Yeah and if it weren’t for the brothers grimm there would be no nothing and on and on,why wouldn’t console owners be playing witcher 3 if it weren’t for pc gamers, if it weren’t for consoles you guys would be playing rts games and warcraft for the rest of your lives

    • Alexander Yordanov

      If it werent for the slavic folklore you mean… not so much brothers Grimm.

      Because Witcher 1 was and STILL is a PC Exclusive. PC Gamers helped CDPR make Witcher 2. And that too was for a long time exclusive….

      RTS games are great my boy… it is sad console gamers cant play them.
      PC invented FPS and RPGs BTW 🙂

    • vapidwolf1

      Slavic, celtic, roman and Greek with a bit of Nordic thrown in everything is a mish mash I’ll give you the fps but rpgs no they were around long before pcs were even capable of such things, rts are ok but the pc gets a new one every week, there is such a thing as overkill

    • Alexander Yordanov

      PCs even capable?

      My boy, re-read gaming history. Please.
      Rts is a dying genre. PC does not get one every week. I can only wish that were the case.

      RTS are not ok. They are just as good as ANY other genre.

    • vapidwolf1

      rpgs first became popular in the 70s with table top games then moved on to basic programs on pc and consoles in the same decade first example of a console rpg was ADVENTURE on the atari vcs, I owned a copy used to think it was great,then moved onto nes and snes with probably some of the greatest rpgs ever made and still are to this day I’m also very fond of Baldurs gate and Icewind dale great memories,but to say pcs made rpgs what they are is a ridiculous statement they do have some good rpgs but the simple fact is console has more, lest not forget the mighty ps1 which was home of some of the best rpgs known to man.

    • Alexander Yordanov

      So you like your action adventure games?
      Good.

      But dont like hardcore strategy games and tycoons?
      Not surprised.

      Do you know that ALL console games up to and including the 6th generation can and will be played on a PC?

      Your console only has 8th gen games. And the Xbox One maybe some of the 7th. Backwards compatibility and emulation mean that consoles NEVER will have more games than a PC.

    • vapidwolf1

      No I don’t like them bore me to tears and I have neither the time or the inclination,I presume your talking about emulation which has only recently been possible with ps1. Quantity doesn’t always mean quality,good luck with that ps4 emulator in 2080 by the way

    • Alexander Yordanov

      Recently possible = possible.
      It is not a question of if. It is a question of when. All consoles will be emulated.

      So you are telling me that all console games ever made till the PS2 generation are just “quantity” and not “quality” ?

      The PS4 will be one of the easiest to emulate. It is a PC you know…
      Also, nice to know that you fit the stereotype. Never caring about old games and gaming as an art to be preserved… typical.

      BTW, RTS games are a lot more exciting than third person action adventure games with stealth elements (PS exclusives).

    • vapidwolf1

      You clearly no nothing of emulation your comment proves this, also it leaves a bad taste of piracy in my mouth so I will bid you good day

    • Alexander Yordanov

      You ran away when you lost.

      Not surprised….
      Go play the simple MORTAL console games. Harm gaming as an art form and its future.

      And talking about piracy and emulation… dont. You know nothing about either.

    • Sidiez

      Why would anyone want a ps4 emulator on the PC when we have the… PC.

      Emulators are great for consoles of the past but the newer consoles are not even worth emulating. Although im sure that will be possible eventually too.

    • vapidwolf1

      In 2080 the ps4 will be a console of the past which I stated in my comment please learn to take in information as you read it,there are no ps3 emulators also the ps2 emulation that is available at the moment is not very stable, ps1 emulation is the best of the lot and even that has issues,if your interested in games from the past I suggest you buy the original consoles you can pick them up cheaply now and the games as well or did you mean theyre great for pirating games because I don’t want to pay for them,which is probably correct.you pc guys just speak constant contradictory hypocritical bullshit.

    • Sidiez

      Yes it will then be a console of the past but i am talking about the consoles of the past today. In 2080 the ps4 will be no more worth emulating then it is today as most games come out on the PC eventually anyway in better form. And the few that dont simply dont matter enough that warrant emulating the ps4.

      And clearly you are upset and a crying little baby who cant talk like a normal person so il leave you to rage by yourself. Have fun.

    • vapidwolf1

      You talk complete and utter nonsense ha ha ha

    • Sidiez

      Whatever helps you get out of bed. I have a ps1,ps2,ps3,ps4,gamecube,dreamcast,xbox, so i am far from being a PC fan boy. What i speak is the truth. You would just rather be ignorant which is fine…. afterall they say ignorance is bliss.

  • Abdul Ghani

    anyone noticed horizon game looked better than witcher and was smooth

    • FalloutWanderer2077

      It looked good but lets be honest, it is not yet a finished product, agreed? Another point to be taken is the type of game it is, I did not see a bunch of dialogue nor do we know how in depth the game will be overall. It does look good but I do not even put these 2 in the same genre.

    • Knowles2

      Probably because it a PS4 exclusive which allows them to optimise the code in ways not possible on multiplat release. Although it will be interesting ot see how big the game is eventually and whether that really all in game footage.

    • xTheMercenary1

      No doubt it looks good, but thats one developer working on 1 platform whereas witcher 3 was being developed for 3 platforms simultaneously.

  • 2econd gpu unlocking

    PS4 that is having the frame rate issues.Not our Xbox One
    Only because
    1.7Ghz vs the 1.5Ghz PS4 and our faster GPU 853Mhz verses the slower 800Mhz.
    We also have tier 3 DX12processing when unlocked

    • brascoboy

      That’s still a joke compared to a halfway decent gaming pc. Just face it, you wasted your money.

    • 2econd gpu unlocking

      No, we didn’t want 2 play 3dmark and benchmark over some points
      and need to top up our watercool coolants.

  • B4D3R

    lol at pc gamers supporting cdpr they almost destroyed them when the majority of the master race were playing a hacked version of the witcher 2 what saved CDPR was the xbox 360 version. Bs yourself as much as you want the majority of pc players prefer pc coz they want to play everything for free.

  • wowgivemeabreak

    So it is CDPR’s fault that Sony and Microsoft require patches to be certified and this other stuff before they are released while PC doesn’t require any of that. Gotcha.

  • brascoboy

    Hahaha!!!!

  • Samuel Way

    I downloaded Witcher last week. I love it. Had to pay for the VPN though because I already have two infringement notices. http://reviewmyvpn.com/

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Pretty sure they prefer whatever system it makes the most money on, since its mostly pirated on PC that’s most likely not PC.

    • *Also On PC

      Nope. CDPR already said the best Witcher 3 experience is on PC. Keep crying, console peasant

    • Alexander Yordanov

      CDPR are Polish.

      Guess what is most popular in Poland? It is PC…

  • dave

    What a predictably pathetic response from certain console owners. Bunch of brats. ‘Oh you guys favour pc boo hoo hoo.’ Even if they did it’s about time someone good damn did! We always come last in preference to consoles…except in the graphic and framerate dept 🙂

  • Aidan Cullen

    Why does everyone have to be a whiney little b*tch!! That includes both sides. Both systems are different, PC owners stop claiming to be some master aryan race!!! Who gives a flying f*ck. Were all gamers and shouldn’t be even fighting amongst ourselves. Give it a rest. I love my console, i’d like a PC but its too expensive and cant afford to fork out hundreds every 2 years just to update the graphics. Both have pro’ and con’s. Get over it.

  • Tou

    PC for life… we all know it… you dont have to spell it CDPR… 😉

  • Tou

    If witcher 3 was a pc exclusive i wouldve bought it 5 times…. 🙁

  • Habsfan115

    alright. I dont care who CDPR prefers. What I care about is the fact i havnt been able to play because i CANNOT RUN OR SPRINT. this has been an issue for nearly 15 days and NO FIX. i was 30 hours in, and it looks like ill have to start all over.

  • Cyberats

    The Age of the Console has Ended, the Age of PC has begun.

  • jesse

    They seriously need to fix the rune crafting in this game.
