Adam Badowski: We always wanted to avoid simple good and evil scenarios. The war between good and evil isn't interesting for us. We love controversial stuff, anti-heroes, Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns, for example. So we have controversial roles and post-modern influences in the storyline.
We have a lot of work ahead of us in that regard because the established plots for Cyberpunk - the wars between corporations, fighting against advanced AI, wars over energy sources, have already all been covered quite thoroughly. There's also the Cyberpunk 2020 game from the '90s. Those scenarios are very familiar. In our opinion, though, nobody has shown Cyberpunk in the way that many people imagined it, we would like to extract those feelings they were getting when watching Ghost in the Shell, Hardware or the motorcycle scenes in Akira.
At the same time we want to refresh this universe which means we have to have a new creative approach to things. We believe that the Witcher taught us that we can handle it.

Regarding GOG, it's such a boon to gamers. I hate spending money, but even I get tempted to buy from GOG.

Thanks. That's the first hinted confirmation there (about the Steambox) that CDPR are interested in working on Linux ports of their games.

"PC was the lead platform for Witcher 2 because it was the most powerful, but that might change in the future."
The statement gives me a feeling that PC is no longer the lead platform for The Witcher 3. I also disagree with his hint that consoles will outperform PC, maybe momentarily but not forever as PC is an ever evolving platform.
I trust CDPR with all my heart therefore I hope they make the right decision.

Maybe? How about never. A relatively high end PC worth about 2000 dollars in total will beat the shit out of the next gen consoles.

This anti-console discussion is ridiculous. Reserve, I do not have the console.
We all weep that consoles suck and PC will be great. But when the game comes, you will cry that your computer can not cope. Count only those computers PCs that have gamers, rather than those which are currently being sold.

Horseshit. Those that complains are those with weaker PCs not those with rigs like mine. I've already dealt with my PC not being able to handle Crysis 3 on it's very high settings and I'm fine with that notion since finally we get a game that is designed to melt PCs. Of course however you can run it low end systems with low video settings because that's the beauty of PC gaming.
I don't much care what happens to consoles as long as I get an amazing looking game on my PC that has a wide number of video options available.

I get the impression that people like this are in the minority. Even when someone is not held back by money, they get hindered by a lack of technical know-how (which video card, which power supply). Consoles, meanwhile, are plug and play, and cost relatively less.

Yea, consoles are very convenient and you never have to worry about a game not working or hardware not being compatible.
That and they are cheaper. So yea, what they lack in power, consoles offer in convenience.

Not all of them and if you have console you can buy used games. With PC you can't do this because most of the games nowadays is connected with Steam/Origin/Uplay etc.
