You sir are amazing and know what the fuck you are blabbing about good job and keep it up lol..Releasing a demo is too dangerous compared to potential benefits for the developer. Most of the people will not treat it as a tech benchmark but actual representation of the whole game and they will project their feelings about the demo on to the game itself.
Case in point - Bulletstorm. One of the best FPS games that happened in last years, buried by poor choice of demo material.
Wasn't that debunked recently though (gameworks stuff)? I seem to recall reading something on NeoGAF that basically called bullshit on this whole story of Gameworks cutting off AMD.At least a benchmark, is absolutely necessary. Also, TW3 use nvidia gameworks, that supposedly blocks AMD from optimizing The Witcher 3 for Radeon cards. That is highly unfair. And amd users wants to test game before purchasing/playing.
I'm not sure this is what happened to Bulletstorm, or if that was all of it. I played it and liked it, i agree withyour summation, but..I have little urge to play more of it. Maybe the world setting? Maybe the over-the-top presentation? Although that fight on the train vs the rolling Death Thing was pretty amazing. Yeah.Case in point - Bulletstorm.

Well, I think it would be fine that, a few days/weeks before game launching, CDPROJEKT release a free benchmark and short playable demo of Wild Hunt.
PC players are so tired of unfinished games launched without optimization...Battlefield 4, watch dogs, even titanfall with source engine and no triple buffer option and frame drops!!
We, gamers, should not buy these companies's games. We, gamers, understand that it is highly difficult to release a game that runs 100% fine at most of pcs without a few post launch patches...but there is a difference between that and technical crap , totally broken games like those ones (and much more)
A company that believe in their own work should launch a benchmark/demo prior to launch. And I think CDPROJEKT is a serious studio.
So, sign this petition if you want to see a demo benchmark of final game before game launching.
PS: My english is bad, as you can see, but I hope you can understand this post
According to the Far Cry 4 benchmarks posted in the system specs thread, AMD appears to have their drivers sorted out to better handle GameWorks effects. They've been doing a lot of work on their drivers lately so I wouldn't be worried about it. I'm sure there will be benchmarks posted by others after the game is released if you really want to see them first before deciding.At least a benchmark, is absolutely necessary. Also, TW3 use nvidia gameworks, that supposedly blocks AMD from optimizing The Witcher 3 for Radeon cards. That is highly unfair. And amd users wants to test game before purchasing/playing.
No, it would not suffice. Given the thoughtless kangaroo court that tried and condemned the Game Awards footage without any evidence at all, it would be an incredibly dangerous thing to do. Anything publicly released has to be tested and packaged for release. This takes time and work, much more time and work than any outsider or armchair developer thinks it does.I think that footage from the most recent build should suffice. It doesn't need to be 30 minutes long like the last one, but it should definitely say from which platform and with what technical specs like resolution and framerate it was recorded.
That's a statement made in the absence of any evidence about the game's performance or the resources it requires.i5, gtx 900 series card(i.e 980 or 970) or an equivalent amd card, 8 gb ram and windows 8.1 and u will be good to go.we all know the game is going to be demading, and im sure it will run the game on low if u have a 560 ti or 570 or better but nothing below this.
They could just let people play the first 10 mins as a demo - if they pre-ordered. That way that 100GB download won't be all for nothingMaking a benchmark demo would mean diverting attention from QA and polish and they cannot afford to delay the game again. We'll have to trust their requirements when they release them.
