    I watched that demo with my wife. My wife is not a gamer and she was impressed by the video. I believe The Witcher 3 is officially the first game to really set this current generation from the last generation.

    Never really got into the Witcher series. Never liked the combat. Story was great however.

    On the graphics front, these are always smoke and mirrors when companies show off their tech (usually at events like E3/Gamecom/etc). Every company does this, expect a slight downgrade in graphic fidelity.

    You're probably right. I wanted to disagree with you but then I look back at the difference between preview and release of BioShock Infinite there was a big downgrade. I guess these videos are just glorified advertisements, so you have to expect it.

    Maybe by mistakenly the release date is typed wrong "February 24, 2014 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. " ;D

    If anything the game will look even better:

    1) YouTube compression in the video significantly degrades IQ and there is really no escaping it.
    2) Based on EuroGamer, the video is from Xbox 1 version.
    3) This is not a developer that has a history of overhyping games and under delivering optimization and graphics like Ubisoft.

    If you are going to make the argument that the game doesn't look good enough, well Witcher 3 looks better than 95% of all PC games. Does that mean all those other 95% of games shouldn't have been worth playing? Crysis games are an example that you can have the best graphics in the world but HL1/HL2 are better than all Crysis games combined.
