To be honest, what interests/concerns me more than the quality/fidelity of the next-gen graphics right now is how the 'current-generation' (i.e. 360; PS3 etc., though I realise that's a bit of a tenuous term now that the One/PS4 have arrived) edition of the game will hold up. At present, I own a 360 and a Wii, and am thinking of upgrading to a PS4 and WiiU (the former choice due to Microsoft's fledging first-party exclusive line-up/their misjudged marketing strategy and TV-centric focus, the latter due to the emergence of the likes of Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD etc.), but I'm still considering just *when* I want to upgrade. Certainly, I intend to save up for and own a PS4 in time for Batman: Arkham Knight, Kingdom Hearts III and Star Wars: Battlefront III (plus Assassin's Creed V if there's going to be separate next-gen/current-gen storylines this time around), yet I'm now debating whether to save for the PS4-Watch Dogs bundle in May if the 360 version is going to be a significant downgrade both aesthetically and (more importantly) technologically.

"I love graphics." Yeah, she doesn't know what she's saying and is just on damage control.

Sorry but can't believe that gif compare at all. It looks like *****e, that's not downgrading that's stripping the walls. If that is true my copy will be going straight to the trade bin. However, I don't believe for 1 moment a next gen console game could look as bad as that at all..........unless it's on the xb1 maybe

Having a look at the e3 2012 gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU7WGAJPRRw) it still looks pretty impressive, but more for the amount of things going on to create a "living world". Probably down to them simply taking a very carefully chosen portion of game to highlight the absolute it has to offer.

I just got caught up on this. From what I can see though it looks as if the gamma and contrast were cranked up on this machine. Everything is washed out but all of the graphic fidelity is the same. All games look terrible when washed out. The weird artifacting on the washed out gif also leads me to believe this was a PC version of the game. So Gamma washout bad contrast can most defiantly account for this. If you don't believe try upping the Gamma and lower the contrast on the Witcher 2 on the PC. It looks like it should be from the PS2 era.
