The Witcher 3 1080p Vs 900p doesn’t matter says dev

By Alan Ng - Mar 2, 2015

If you have seen preview gameplay of The Witcher 3, you’ll know that the game is looking amazing from a graphics standpoint and definitely one of the best prospects of 2015.

Despite that, there’s been a lot of talk on how the PS4 version will be running at 1080p and the Xbox One version at 900p based on preview builds seen so far.

As you can imagine, there has been some disappointment from Xbox One owners who could be seeing another high profile game with a lower resolution than the PS4 version.

However, CD Projekt Red have been keen to set the record straight in saying that the gameplay experience will be what matters the most.


In a recent interview with GamingBolt, Michał Krzemiński, Senior Art Producer for the game said that there will be little difference on the whole.

One quote in particular states: “There’s little difference between 1080p and 900p in terms of the actual experience you get. These numbers are just numbers, it’s the adventure and thrill you get from playing the game that counts.”

It’s well worth reminding everyone of that, with so much scrutiny on resolution these days. Gameplay is what will shine through, especially with a game in the mould of The Witcher.

What are your thoughts on this – do you agree that it’s useless arguing about the differences between 1080p and 900p?

    “What are your thoughts on this – do you agree that it’s useless arguing about the differences between 1080p and 900p?”
    Just last generation when people debated resolution over measly 8P’s on Call of duty on Xbox360 compared to PS3. No, it isn’t useless. Xbots had a whole generation of truly meaningless resolution debate. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, it’s “meaningless.” People have been debating these differences for decades. This is the first console generation where there has been such large discrepancies. 900P to 1080P is a gap of over half a million pixels, 633,600 to be exact. Not a small difference.
