YouTuber Robert Cram has given a decent Graphics comparison video between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which can be seen beneath. The comparison video showcases the same scenes from the Xbox One, PS4 and PC version keeping in mind that the PC version is running at Ultra settings with NVIDIA HairWorks off.

Note: Scene 2 messed up the labels. Says PS4 when it’s not.
There’s been plenty of talk amongst gamers looking at early footage of the game when it was first presented and how a visual downgrade seems to have occurred, but what is normally the case is the PC version being superior to the consoles. In this instance that difference in terms of visuals seemingly only extends to increased resolutions (up to 4K) and a more preferable 60 frames per second compared to the console locked 30 frames per second. Take a look at our The Witcher 3 graphics comparison video and see if you’re able to spot any differences in terms of texture details, lighting and shadow effects. They are there but not so easy to spot. For best results download the 600 MB direct feed footage rather than relying on the Youtube compressed video.
P.S: All three looks great to me, and there’s not much of a difference if any. I think that the developers did a great job with this game.
The Witcher 3 is released for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
