Unless you think Crysis was a well-optimized and stable piece of software, roughly the same hardware memory requirements apply to PC's as they do for consoles in terms of reaching a wide audience. PC's are more lenient about those requirements in general, but the more demanding your product is the less people are going to be purchasing it. There's a reason why World of Warcraft, Torchlight and the like look like shit and still manage to be extremely high-grossing games.
I'd be curious to see the sales numbers on PC Witcher compared to console Witcher a few years down the line.
I'm not saying shit isn't getting stunted, I'm saying that it's getting stunted for decent reasons. It's fiscally infeasible to develop a full-out PC version for a simultaneous, multi-platform release (Witcher 2's re-release being, what, a year and a half later?) and at some point you're going to have to pick between appeasing the elite or selling to the peasants. Maybe I'm biased, being that I fall into the peasant category, but I'd rather play a decent-looking game on my 360 than shell out more money and time than I really have for a rig that's only going to last for a year or two if I'm lucky. I'm thirty years old with a wife and a kid, I'm not going to have patience for that shit again for decades.
Also, having 8GB of RAM in my PC, nothing to use it on. This is why I still buy so many games on console, even with fucking 16 times the RAM the games usually run better (but look worse I admit) on a console. It's fucking awful.
Also the one with Mordin makes me think of elves, probably the eyes and mouth that remind me of the Witcher elves.
also hey lets talk about mass effect
sure, I'll set everything to absolute minimum before I even think about running any game on anything lower than native resolution, but Witcher 2 still chugs like a motherfucker even when I'm playing it on a postage stamp.
I love getting glitched in the skybox, and I get instantly revived when I go down
Got a Krogan Vanguard in a veteran pack, yay

Reminds me of Lankists comic.
Those look like pretty balling socks
right down to the god damn stick figures
