CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski, in a recent interview with our friend at Eurogamer hinted towards another resolution-gate controversy between Xbox One and PS4. The developer admitted that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will probably look better on Sony’s console.

The Witcher 3: Wild HuntMarcin hinted that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will probably run at 1080p on PS4 as compared to 720p on Xbox One, but added that the debate 1080 vs 720 “isn’t meaningful to gamers and its more of a “PR definition”.

“We are still working on squeezing the juice out of the consoles and Microsoft is supporting us in this respect,” Iwinski deflected. “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 screen, and I sit one meter or two meters from it, then I might be able to see the difference'”

Marcin added:

“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. We’re definitely working to max out each of the platforms in terms of what we can get, because that’s a crucial element of The Witcher. Will there be big differences? Really I don’t think so. It’s too early to say.”

This resolution-gate controversy on PS4 vs Xbox One with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on was hinted way back in February2014 by Industry Insider Shinobi602. At that he Shinobi602 leaked that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt runs at 720/30 FPS on Xbox One and at 900p/30 FPS (with development team working hard to touch 1080p)
