Looks good, small drop in quality but seems ok

bullshots probably, looks way too good to be on 360 like that

maybe with some extra jaggies

Will definatly look great on 360 though, it looked great on low on my PC even

Very, very nice, even if it doesn't look like that art style makes up for it.

Still looks way better than the RPGs we got today.

Looks like low-medium PC settings at a low resolution, there's no way they're fake.

BTW is that Philippa in the last screen? I don't recall seeing that scene on my playthrough

OMG do you see that last shot, talk about contoversial, my man is operating near a furnast and look what he is dressed in, I need to get human rights on the phone :).

pretty much the same, the ridoncolous clothes textures took a small hit but its on par with a medium range settings. There isn't a PS3 version ... the textures would hit a low setting lol, carmack to the rescue.

Doesn't matter much if the framerate is as bad as Risen.

That looks amazing. I can't really say the drop from PC is that noticeable. That's going to be a stunning port.

Low settings obviously, and everything is very... flat In comparison to the PC version. The thing I liked most about the PC version's graphics were the lighting effects, which seem to be completely absent in this version :( Might still give it a purchase if they're able to polish it enough by release.

There is some gameplay out there, lighting is alright and amazing.

I can see from the screenshots that it's been downgraded a lot, unfortunately.

If you played it on PC well of course it will seem downgraded but for some like me that I havent it looks glorious and above other RPGs out there, what you see downgraded I dont see it, simple, also this is a game for us 360 gamers not for people that have competents PCs and 360, it would be silly to buy this and not t he PC version.

No it's not. I play this game on a gtx580 maxed out and it really doesn't look much different in these screenshots.

Low Spec? Yeah right! Texture quality looks nowhere near as good as these screens on low spec, plus you dont get cinematic depth of field which is clearly visible in these screens. This is medium spec at the very least.

Then you've either turned down all the settings for some reason, or you need to book an optician's appointment.

this is just pre-alpha and it looks great, cant wait to play the final version.

it is looking pretty good to be honest. A fair representation of the pc version, stripped of the more impressive bells and wistles.

I am not sure why people are saying these are bull shots. Well they are in terms of AA and image quality, but not details. Check the U3 screenshots for comparison, they also have added AA, but overall look quite alot more impressive

Erm, look at the screenshot evidence I posted, maybe?

Looks good for a console game, The Witcher is the most demanding PC game on the market but unlike, say, Metro 2033, it's worth every bit of power.

Here are some pics I've taken from the PC version. Runs smooth in my rig @ max (except ubber realism) but it needs a double 5870 which is like 8 times more powerful than an Xbox 360.

Thanks but i have the game as enough evidence. You say this looks like the PC version on Low spec then you post a comparison against the pc version on Ultra spec? Good job!
Commented on 2011-06-09 21:13:05
Should be steady a 30 fps with vsync enabled or these screenshots mean ZIP.

Nope, low/medium spec. I posted a comparison pic because he said it didn't look much different, which it does. Comprende? :)
Commented on 2011-06-09 21:24:54
Looks good enough for me. It may not match the PC version, but it's easily the best looking RPG for 360. I just hope they smooth out that animation. It looks very stiff some of the time.

I hope they don't compromise framerate in order to make it look very pretty, a few low rez textures won't hurt anyone.

I expect 30fps locked, and not a single tear, and if it tears only in cutscenes.
