Releasing this at full price is actually insulting. But then again I remember that Switch owners will literally buy anything regardless of the price.

You must have something better to do than fuss over other people's purchasing habits. A game to play, perhaps? =P

If they can get $60 for it, CDPR is gonna try, and for the amount of content included that's honestly not a bad price. And they actually shelled out for a 32gb card unlike a lot of studios. Then again, 'tis a bit ugly. Then again again, of the game's good, and people want to play the full thing on the go for some reason, why should I care? *shrug*

I was waiting for a comment like this. You've made my day. Always funny to see the Switch Defence Force in action.

That's me. Always at the ready to defend my beloved Nintendo, when not busy suckling at the teat, of course.

On the other hand, you're not really doing anything to dispell that whole "Nothing better to do" vibe you've got going there.

That's not true at all. I would say good games could thrive, not bad titles or ports.

I love Witcher 3 and I don't have a Switch. However, I think it's great that more gamers can try one of the best games ever made.

Of course there have to be some compromises but to each it's own. If someone wanted top fidelity, they wouldn't be playing on the Switch anyway.

It's like saying the PS4 version is worthless because it runs better on PC (remember all those slowdowns in the bog area?).

I fully recommend this game and I think CDPR deserves full price for this game. Specially because the media that is involved.

The game is being ported to Nintendo Switch by Saber Interactive (NBA Playground and Shaq Fu ) in close cooperation with CD PROJEKT RED.

Digital version 32 GB.
That doesn't look bad

So is this like an admission that you're pathetic?

I might finally be able to play this. I have ADHD, so being able to just pick up and play the game anywhere is kind of a huge deal for me.

Its insulting you cant seem to understand that witcher 3 is running on a fucking handheld.
So is doom
So is skyrim
So is diablo 3

60 is nothing for this kinda of crazy programming.

As much as I loooove The Witcher 3, I just don't see myself picking this up. My Switch is never undocked so to me it's just a home console so the option for portability isn't much of an incentive at all.

Watching comparison video & looking at the screenshots, I wouldn't have known which version was which without the indicators to tell me.... :p

The game is going to look and play fine, of that I am sure. It’s also not going to be the best looking way to play the game. That’s sort of the point. The Witcher 3 is essentially being ported to last-gen consoles. There’s going to be sacrifices. If those sacrifices are too much for you, don’t buy the game. It’s not a difficult choice.

Honestly, I’m very happy the Switch is getting this level of support from developers and publishers. It’s great to see a Nintendo console that developers are excited about. They might be ports for now, but I think it’ll lead to more new games being developed. Especially if Nintendo makes the Switch a platform for future consoles. If Nintendo actually embraces backwards and forwards compatibility, a lot of these ports are going to look better as the hardware improves.

On one hand I am sorry to hear about your macular degeneration and impending blindness. On the other hand everyone needs to play and support The Witcher in all forms.

No.... I see very slight differences but I wouldn't know which was which without the labels :p I'm sure it'll look great in handheld mode, anyway :D
You have less polygons, worse textures, cut down lod and draw distance and of course much lower resolution. Differences are obvious on pc monitor, that's why I asked about screen you are using ;)

I don't have a PC.... No point comparing it on a big screen when I'll be playing on the Switch 1 :p Thing is, I obviously never played it on anything else or I wouldn't be getting Switch version :D
