    The ground, foliage, and water textures look pretty bad...

  • PixelKnighty

    People seem to forget about the 60fps on PC

  • Mr. Vince

    PS4 looks better but XBOX version run smoother, tho both look amazing, the ps4 version has some frame drops in certain areas

  • Jihf

    They all look very similar. They did a great job making The Witcher 3. It looks a tad bit better on PC, but it's nearly identical on PS4 & XB1. Great video!

  • hristaki99

    7:03Pretty sure that's not PS4 footage.

  • New Vegas

    watch with 144p to get the best experience

  • Giovanny Ferreira

    7:04 PS4 with Button the XOne?

  • FitnessSenpai飛


  • oh baby a tripol ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    The console version stands tall compared to the vanilla version on PC, but if you add all the mods I have installed and compare it, then it looks like a comparison between the witcher 3 and the witcher 4. That's the reason why I bought a pc, mods, and I don't regret it a thing.

  • Jeffrey Lebowski

    Why can't we all come to the same conclusion : CD Projekt RED did a fucking great job with each version. The PC version is superior as it should be, but there ain't much of a difference with the console.

  • Sukun Unosawa

    PS4 cannot handle vesemir's white horse graphics

  • tokekkk

    GTA V water still looks better


    kaum unterschied leider ^^immerhin hat der pc eine höhere Auflösung + 60 fps (wenn man einen guten pc hat) zu bieten sonst ist fast alles gleich

  • Walter Bergmann

    The Witcher 3 + the two DLC's are nothing but epic. Geralt & Ciri <3

  • ADAM Burton

    Pc and xbox deffo look the best.

  • Gusion Rebake

    The biggest difference I can see was the hair on Roach the horse. Roach's hair on PC looks majestic af. The console version looks like pubes in comparison XD

  • Santiago Andres Sandoval

    Es lo mismo en todas las plataformas. Espectacular en todas. Seria muy tonto uno ponerse cerquita del TV y decir "Uy no, esta textura se ve mal" o decir "Esto en Play se ve mejor".  Solo hay que disfrutar de estos juegazos. Cuando uno esta concentrado en el juego. esos pequeñisimos detalles no se notan.

  • Dok Hycodan

    I noticed you have hairworks off for PC, but I'm wondering how the consoles are able to pull hairworks since I thought it was an nvidia exclusive feature.

  • MeMiMike


  • Sandhewa Beryl

    This game is running smoothly on my XBoneMy rig is called CrossBone e.e

  • Thiago Menezes

    ok, the graphics are the same. btw 30 and 60fps are the same shit, not drastic difference. the only difference is u can play this game spent 150$ in a used xbox+game like i did

  • Rojigami

    07:06 PS4 doesn't have an "A" button. What the hell~!!

  • Arthur Rodrigez

    No diffrence,cause when you play console you are sitting 3-4 metres

  • Talle13

    pc: amazingps4: okxo: bad

  • Para Sempre Jogador

    I honestly can't tell the differences. Well, this should be a cold water bath for the "PC Master Race"...

  • Kevin Cormier

    YouTube makes the all look like crap.

  • Jake

    Conclusion = Buy the game for whichever gaming station you have because you're gonna have a great experience wither way!I have a hard time spotting the difference even between PC and Xbox One.

  • EZ1cks

    I've noticed that, in the first scene, Xbox One is missing the fog effect and the background clouds. I don't know if this has something to do with the time of day or dynamic weather effects, but the other two have it, sooo... hummm....................... Brick Game Master Race!


    people fight about ps4 is better than xbox or xbox is better than ps4 XD, got one thing to say, PC master race \0/

  • Abdelrahman Samir

    shadow quality ps4 the best

  • Ste Men

    Primer latino en comentar.

  • R. Kayn

    ps4 and PC look the same to me

  • Zcoria

    The best part is that it looks amazing no matter what system it's on!

  • ThoughT

    In the 2:23 example, is it just me or is the XO the only one experiencing some pretty bad frame lag? Seems slow. The good thing is, that the PC version looks great, even with everything low, so the consoles are going to look decent either way. The reason to get the PC version over all is a constant 60fps frame rate which this game benefits from greatly. It's one of those games that are so beautiful it just deserves to be played at 60fps.


    is it just me or does ps4 look slightly better

  • Kha Zix

    CALLING ALL PC GAMERS!!... I used to be just like you, and then I got a new girlfriend, and a new job, and some human friends, and a social life... and finally, a PS4.Indeed, your anti-aliasing is better than mine... but my life is better than yours :)

  • Marius Balthasar

    Die Unterschiede der verschiedenen Versionen sind derart marginal, dass man das beim Spielen nicht merken würde.(Ausnahme natürlich 60fps und 4k beim PC)

  • Naetoru

    The fact that people argues that one of these is better than the others is pathetic.

  • Kim Sanderhoff

    I just bought the game of the year edition for pc. I think it looks great. But looking at the PS4, I honestly don't see any difference, except lower framerates. But then again, I only have a gtx 970.

  • Guhsteh

    PC > XB1 = PS4.The game still looks fantastic, people are hating on this game for no reason. Yeah, it sucks there was a downgrade, but that's what happens when we have underpowered consoles, just saying. The 2013 version was somewhat of a vertical slice, and it wasn't feasible to make the whole game look like that with their budget. I'll reiterate, the game still looks phenomenal, especially on PC.

  • John Cusick

    did candylanbd even have PC on ultra with hairworks?

  • steves da silva

    A questão é que,durante o jogo,você não perceberá diferença......

  • Josh Lupton

    I play this on PC but i must say PS4 looks really nice

  • Justin Powell

    is it me or does the xbox one look slightly darker at times?

  • Mahan Abbasi Ahvazi

    PS4 version looks perfect to me. I spent nearly $500 (AUD) on PS4 and $99 on the game. And I love it. Thanks for the video.

  • Nab

    Most of you think that ps4 is better than Xbox one because it's 1080p, but unfortunately that is not the case. Ps4 plays games at 1080p @60fps but that doesn't mean it will look that good because the textures will be down scaled to medium and the colors won't be that vibrant as the xbox one's. Xbox one plays games at 720-900p @6o fps with high textures and better colors. But pc is obviously superior with higher specs depending on budget for the pc. Although console version do look amazing, pc will look even better. Also admittedly, ps4 games don't look that good because whenever i play lioke bf4, The order, Killzone, the game alsways look so dull where the xbox looks so clean and bloomy in games especially Bf4.

  • Ryzuken

    Honestly pc is better than console and that is a fact but I prefer to play on my PS4 because of controls and personal preference

  • Josh Pike

    I don't see any difference besides the PC being slightly better.

  • myfreetime123

    ps4 isabout the same as medium settings on my PC. Xbox looks like complete shit

  • KruLeQ

    PC FPS= 60-120OX,PS4 FPS= 10-30:)

  • TheVinster17

    Youtube really does a poor job of showing the differences. I've played on PS4 and on PC with everything maxed (except hairworks), and there is a huge difference. The game has better view distance, shading/lighting, textures, anti-aliasing....pretty much better everything on the PC. But thats only if you can max it.

  • TheEnglishGamer111

    1. Pc. 2. Ps4 3. XO are my options

  • Vincentius

    I see 0 difference. Videos like this never seem to work for me.

  • 021kds

    would you pay for cost like $$$$ or $$$$$ for same quality ,only 60 fps vs 30fps under 1080p VS $399 console ?would you keep 1080p60fps playing  AAA games while upgrading $$$ graphic card every year?

  • ArtFactory

    the hair looks better on console, wtf???

  • RyoHazuki224

    Wow, the differences are.... very slight. Almost negligible. Like even if you scrutinize and you can tell a slight difference, does it really, REALLY matter? They all look amazing to me. Only small differences I can see is the PC one has better hair on the damn HORSE, and slightly more grass density. And the Xbox One version in very, very few scenes seem to have lower texture quality. But during actual gameplay, would you even notice it? I highly, highly doubt it.All three look excellent, and if anybody cries "look! Witcher 3, PC/PS4/Xbox version is better! WIN" you are all idiots. That is like arguing that you have five dollars and one cent while I only have five dollars. What does it fucking matter? I can still get a footlong sub same as you! LOL

  • Tiago Santiago

    Só sonysta no comentário

  • Ian Lesiuk

    I love the motion blurr in games nowadays. Especially this one, because it makes the frame rate feel much more smooth than it actually is

  • Stefon

    ps4 looks way better than xbox 1

  • wazim buhora

    Ps4 colours are nicer than the Xbox I'll admit that

  • SoulScr3am

    I just built my own gaming PC for the first time in many many years after being a PS4 gamer only.And this game, without sounding like a ''PC master race'' idiot fanboy that gives PC players a bad name, this game is beautiful on Ultra 60fps!It is a shame that not everyone get to experience how this game should be experienced, after beating it on PS4, the game is great on PS4, but that was before trying it on my PC.I really recommend switching over to PC, maybe not switch but think about learning a bit about PC building and PC in general so that you can make a smooth transition.Have a nice day and happy gaming!

  • Nightcast9

    The things about console gaming that made me switch:-lack of mods-poor long range support for online-poor bug support-too young community-weak staying power( these graphics will be outdated in 2 to 3 years)-paying $500 for something that has less than a PC and will be dead performance wise compared to it, in a few years.

  • Jamie McGuire

    Might be Youtube compression, but only difference I see is in render distance, especially for the shadows at 1:04

  • DES Hamoody

    I like PS4 but the PC Is the best "

  • cfb sdg

    Pc has the better graphics. But only expensive ones . I bet most ppl that can play witcher 3 on pc they dont play ultra settings . So bettven Ps4 and Xbox one . I would always chose Xbox because i have very nice history with xbox 360. But other than that there is no one better is just what you prefer . Im just happy that i can play this great game
