anyway i changed my mind about preordering it and lowered my expectations after all the bad signs from last 6 monts and the delays. in the worst case we still have 2 great games the witcher 1 and 2.
Delays and visual downgrades?
i don't think there will be noticeable visual downgrades even on xbone, because cd project sold their soul already to sony and microsoft by deciding to release tw3 on ps4 and xbone. microsoft and sony will go for sure that it'll look great on their consoles, thats why we have delays. and i suspect that to achieve great visuals and acceptable performance they (cd project) downgrade/sacrifice everything else, as long as it don't directly belongs to graphics, for example decrease the amount of npcs, details, non-quest related enemies, ai (just take a look at the demos), animation, wildlife .... and its already about one year of "polishing & optimization", so prepare for being disappointed.
