I will be happy to be able to play it on any PS4 device, even with down-scaled graphics. #PCMasterRace anyone?

(PS: I know Witcher games are notorious for pushing the limits of present-day machines right from the start. I wanted to see how everyone else’s machines stood up to these specs!)

Holy crap. My PC can’t even play this game. I have a Radeon 7770 2GB video card. PS4 it is…

my CPU is at the minimum. my video card not much greater than minimum. time to upgrade!!!

I will have to get that 2nd SSHD, but otherwise I meet the recommended requirements.

This won’t leave much system resources for streaming… I guess I need to get started on that 2nd streaming system.
