Having watched the video, this was more like a casual conversation between two friends than an interview between game journalist and company representative. The tone was very jokey and not serious at all. At one point the CDPR guy joked about wanting an intern, preferably female, over 18, multilingual etc. I think you guys are reading a little too much into these statements.
With all the dev time they've had available for the NX version, it doesn't really make sense to do 60fps unless they are putting minimal resources into visually upgrading the game.
I wouldn't bother reading into any statements made about this console unless they are directly saying NX is better than PS4, or better than Neo, or worse than XBO, etc. Vague stuff like this, or Reggie's statement doesn't really mean much. Just expect PS4 level or worse and you'll be fine.
It depends on how big of a performance update the NX version will receive. I'm rather surprised that Nintendo confirmed thay the NX version would have better visuals. Performance wise I'd like to see Nintendo improve the field of view(some things popped up only a few meters away), Improved polygonal structures(there were some cliff shots that polygonally looked like TP but the textures were really good to help disguise it),improved shading techniques to help enhance the art style of the game, 60FPS, and 1080P. I'd love a bigger visual upgrade but I'm not sure how much work Nintendo is going to put into enhancing the visuals for the NX version and they may prioritize more stability in terms of FPS and 1080P support over pushing the system to its limits and sacrificing FPS or full HD support.
I don't know - the conversation was pretty casual, every games media person in Germany knows this guy for years. I don't want to insult him, I'm not a part of the games industry so I'm not in the place to truly judge him. Let's say the best thing that can happen from this is that the story blows up in the US and worldwide and CDPR is forced to make some kind of statement.
I think what he was indicating is that Nintendo doesn't have the same leverage to get costs down as Microsoft or Sony, likely because of existing industrial contracts and knowing the right people. Nintendo is large, but not as large as Sony and Microsoft when you take into account all their non-gaming products.
This kind of stuff really devalues your fanbase. It's like Nintendo is saying their fanbase won't care about the game unless it has Zelda costumes. We're not all as nostalgic about Zelda or as narrow minded as that, lol.
