In an interview with Eurogamer, CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski, has suggested that The Witcher 3 may run better on the PlayStation 4, than the Xbox One based on the current builds of the game. Iwinski said, “There’s a chance it will”, but elaborated:
We are still working on squeezing the juice out of the consoles and Microsoft are supporting us in this respect. The final effect, whether it’s 720p, 1080p – we had the debate in the studio about it and actually asked our tech guys to explain how it works, and they sent me some complicated graphs that ‘if I have this size of the screen, and I sit one meter or two meters from it, then I might be able to see the difference’.
He also argued that this was more important of an issue for Sony, rather than for gamers themselves:
It’s more of a PR differentiation, which is very important for Sony right now – and they are using it, obviously – than something that is really meaningful to gamers.
The Witcher 3 is scheduled for release in February 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
