Looks great, gonna be interesting to see what they do with the story.

Great! But only 200 mb? I thought the uncompressed would be atleast ~600 mb (some of my friends got it via other sources and say so) and that's consistent with the other uploads here.
Well, I assume this is the HD stream grab and the uncompressed one is still being uploaded?

Awesome music and CGI.
CGI Geralt looks awesome as hell compared to the in-game version, and Yennifer looks great!

Its a shame the actual game isnt making me excited to get it.

I am just so excited about this game.
CDPR Dev are the best, they do no DLC's, they ship the whole game at once and needless to say they do make frkin amazing Games.

Can you refer me some of those sites. Thanks.

"uncompressed"? You mean like 1920*1080*3 (bytes per pixel) * 25 (fps) * 179 (seconds) = 27,8 GB, that you can download on another site on the internet?
Anyway, the bitrate is not as high as some other videos on gamersyde, that's true.

We always provide H264 files (for playback purpose among other things). The original file is indeed around 550Mb but it is a ProRes/PCM file so we encoded it.
It's "only" 200Mb now but the resolution and framerate are only 800p/25fps and dark hues/colors tend to compress well.

And later the EE for free for those who own the game already.

And those site that you refer to as sources?

So excited about this! Never got the chance to play a Witcher game yet, but this looks so damned good. Pretty much the sole reason I will finally be getting a PS4 at the end of the year.

Any plans to switch to H265 ?

I'm sooo tempted to watch this trailer, but I probably won't. I'm sooo stoked about this game, that if I watch that intro. If I do, I would want to play it NOW! February 2015 can't get here quick enough! That month has The Order 1886, Bloodborne, and The Witcher 3!

BB and W3 oh man,..But Order1886?, that game would be a surprise dud. Calling it.

Brings new meaning to the term eat crow...har har har....I really like Geralt's new look. He looks nobler and harder(?). It kinda feels solid snake-ish. Either way, i'm stoked...I'm just trying to decide if I should pick up a second GTX 760 or go with a GTX 970 : /

You mean "Big Boss-ish" since Solid Snake never had a beard.
But yeah i agree, he looks more experienced, noble and tougher.

Yes, yes I do. Old Snake from MGS4 was rather silly looking.
