This game is pretty hardware intensive, but I'll be damned if it beats me. I'll overclock till my room is burning before I admit I can't run hairworks at 60fps.
Seriously though, it doesn't look quite as good as it did in the 2013 trailers, but I'm guessing that's because they had to adjust and downgrade some stuff so that it can run on 8th gen console (they didn't have their stats back in 2013 and probably thought they'd be a lot more powerful).
It would be hard to blame a company like CD projekt RED for scummy busyness practices because they've been very consumer friendly with TW1 and TW2. Day1 GoG releases are a big plus too.
