RE: PC vs. Console
Also, in making games for the PC, I think the developers have to take into account the various types of hardware configurations the players will be using. They want to make the game playable for as many rigs as they feasibly can. I'm sure this would be tricky when trying to track down bugs, etc.

Building for the console would be more focused in this regard. Not as many different hardware setups to take into account?

You're correct , in that there are less configurations for consoles . Only two really . As for developers having to take numerous configurations into account , only if they choose to .

Very true. I guess it becomes a balance of development cost or design concept vs. more potential game sales. think

I read, in Gameinformer, that Witcher 3 is 35 times larger than Witcher 2 shocked
