    It would still be 6GB effectively since it copies the textures over all four of the GPU. Also if CD Projekt Red is serious about trying to establish a significant modding community, there will inevitably be some insane texture mods.

    Have there been any word at all about the system requirements? I kinda hope that if you can run TW2 decently, then you would be able to run this decently with a lot of bells and whistles turned off but I guess that's not how game optimization works.

    it's kind of weird that neogaffers are complaining about shitty textures while codexers are claiming everything is fine and you should stop nitpicking

    I remember when I was trolling Bioware forums when DA2 got released, one of my favorite things were comparing graphics of DA2 and Witcher 2. I was actually quite surprised how many people thought that DA2 had superior visuals, and they felt like it was stone cold fact not worthy of discussion.

    Makabb, your screens definitely aren't "in game". That screen with Geralt his drawn sword against a wolf looks much more realistic... in terms of what we'll get.

    I do not mind it. But you can hardly argue that the visual gap is not so impressive, relative to Witcher 2.

    I recall some Bioware person agreeing that Witcher 2 looked better, but saying it's because Witcher 2 is a single-character game and doesn't have to deal with the memory footprint of a 4-character party, which is true enough.

    Conveniently ignoring all talk of art style of course.

    The camera is further away and in every game there are less details for the sake of performance when you move the camera away. On close up it will probably look like on those screenshots.

    Whenever I see the word NeoGaff.. I think Insane SJW Community.. Not sure why I should trust their mods to Veto anything that didn't align with their world views..

    I can see the most flimsy of evidence making this guy a credible source..

    Neogaf is decent when it comes to leaks as long as they're heavily sony-related.

    Outside of it, not too much. Sometimes they hit, usually they miss.

    The one with the wolves I can agree looks worse than others. But the rest look very good.

    In the end it's just graphics, you know.

    Texture on wolf is pretty low res and the LoD (foliage distance) is not stellar.
    But this is stuff that can be explained by lower detail settings or console origin of the screens.
    The actual content, art design etc looks as good as always. The shot with the mountain just makes me want to explore that shit.

    In this day and age people shouldn't give two fucks about graphics anymore. The fuss about them makes one wonder if they are only looked at to compensate bad gameplay -- that the games wouldn't work if they "looked worse" than expected.

    Could end up being the nicest looking game ever, if the combats still as annoying as Witcher 2 I'm still likely not gonna play it for very long.
