CD Projekt Red's E3 2019 Demos for Cyberpunk 2077 were running on PC

The question now is how well will the console versions compare?

CD Projekt Red's E3 2019 Demos for Cyberpunk 2077 were running on PC

At E3 2019, CD Projekt Red has been showcasing Cyberpunk 2077 to both the public and the press, wowing attendees with the game's amazing graphical features, so much so that many referred to the game as "next-gen" despite the title's planned release on PS4 and Xbox One. 

Recent articles online have reported that Cyberpunk 2077's E3 demo was running on a PS4 Pro, with Dave Thier writing on Forbes that "the demo was running on a PS4 Pro, which isn't even the most powerful console on the market". This article has since made it to CD Projekt Red's Global Community Manager, Marcin Momot, who has refuted this claim stating that "The game was shown on PC [Translated from Polish]", as a direct response to Forbes' PS4 Pro claims.

That's right, the E3 demos for Cyberpunk 2077 were running on PC, which is unsurprising given Cyberpunk 2077's multi-platform status. This may also be why CD Projekt's gameplay demo was not showcased online, over fears that gamers will cry "downgrade" when the game eventually launches in April 2020. 
 

 

 

Nvidia has recently confirmed that the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 will feature RTX raytracing within the game, a graphical feature that sits well beyond the capabilities of today's console hardware. There is no doubt that PC will be Cyberpunk 2077's lead platform, at least in terms of visuals, especially when combined with the latest and greatest graphics tech.

Really... After Witcher 3 someone has the idea that Cyberepunk will be designed for consoles in mind? CD Projekt Red is the only game maker that makes games the proper way. The PC version has all the bells and whistles, and makes your computer bleed (not because it is a bad port), and then consoles get lowest details version that barely runs at 30 FPS. Not the other way around. I wouldn't be surprised if it requires 2080 Ti SLI (or next year's equivalent) for max settings.Quote

It's reasonable to believe it was console though. It was at an Xbox event....

Though whoever said PS4 pro is an idiot. Why would MS let a game running on PS hardware be shown at an Xbox event that was supposed to build hype for Project Scarlett?Quote

The Witcher 3 was severely downgraded because they wanted it to run on consoles and not look like crap compared to the PC version. Compare "Sword of Destiny" trailer to the final product.
The final game shipped without volumetric lighting, among other features that were supposed to be in the game.Quote

Wasn't Witcher 3 designed for consoles? I assumed it was, since it reeked of consoleitis, and needed a gamepad. Keyboard control for that game was arse.Quote
