CD Projekt - PC Is The Most Powerful...For The Moment
In an interview with GamesIndustry Adam Badowski, the CEO of CD Projekt Red, a company known for their championing of the PC, has said that while the PC is the most powerful gaming platform at the moment - and thus more suited to their trademark high-quality visuals - with the advances in the next generation consoles, that may change.
Providing an interesting insight into the minds behind CD Projekt Red, Badowski said that although they treat all platforms individually, 'PC was the lead platform for Witcher 2 because it was the most powerful, but that might change in the future', clarifying that 'PC allows for more at the moment, but new platforms are stepping up. In the future, it should be much easier to unify the requirements. Some things, like control schemes, will still need to be tailored to the platforms but the new platforms will unify requirements.'
Personally, I think he's ignoring that Moore's Law is global for all technology, so the PC will continue to become more powerful over time as well as consoles - even if it's also true that May's Law negates much of that. Still, time will tell if Badowski's predictions prove true.
