Witcher 2 Not Being Sacrificed for Consoles

According to the Witcher’s Facebook Page (Way better than Twitter) They are not going to “sacrifice” the game’s development for consoles at the moment. They are simply focused on a great PC title … for now.

That's sad. Good looking game.

greeneggsnsam3029d ago

Why sad? It means PC gamers will be able to play it the way it was intended.

fredfenster3028d ago

Agree, even though I don't own a gaming pc, can't blame devs for loyalty to the original fanbase.

Bobbykotickrulesz3028d ago

It's a little sad, because I just don't have the funds to go out and buy a good gaming PC for a grand.

Why can't someone just give me 1,000 dollars so I can buy one huh? Is that so much to ask?

bobcostus3028d ago

You are ill informed if you believe you need 1000$ to build a gaming PC to run this game.

No Way3028d ago (Edited 3028d ago )

Exactly. Ha, my brother bought the first game, and I've wanted to play it.
But, it ran like shit on my computer.. Though still continued to play it.

Cause it was pretty badass.. unfortunately I was not. Lol. I died too often.

Christopher3028d ago

I support this. The game started on the PC and shines the best there. Would be fine to put it out on consoles after a PC release.

callahan093028d ago

It's precisely the OPPOSITE of sad, in my opinion. Love the original, can't wait for the sequel, and I'm glad they're just focusing on a single platform. In my opinion it is ALWAYS good when a developer picks one platform to focus on. Don't care which platform it is, it could be PC, PS3, 360, Wii, PSP, DS, whatever they pick, it's good news for the game if they just focus on one. That's how I see it. Plus, as someone who owns every single one of those platforms for gaming, I enjoy it when exclusives come out for any system so that it increases the value of me owning that system. If a system had no exclusives, there'd be no point in owning it when you could just own one of the other platforms all its games are on, you know?

JsonHenry3028d ago

I am just happy this game is coming out for people who don't own a halfway decent gaming rig. This is a title, such as the STALKER series, that console only guys really don't know what they are missing.

And now they will!

lelo2play3028d ago

Thank God. A game that is not dumbed down because of consoles. Witcher is a great game. Witcher 2 looks better.

Put that in the pc that you typed your comment on and you now have a pc capable of playing basically everything at the highest IQ settings on the 720p monitor that comes with all off the shelf desktop pc's.

I agree, the game would make a killing on consoles!

CrzyFooL3029d ago

They will port it to consoles after it becomes a PC hit. You can bank on that.

Darkfiber3028d ago

Maybe. I wouldn't be so sure. The first one was a pretty big hit on PC and it was intended to come out on console but then they cancelled it. I doubt they would release the second game on console but not the first.

Persistantthug3028d ago

What developer doesn't want to potentially sell double the copies?

ElementX3028d ago (Edited 3028d ago )

It's probably a small studio, which probably have the resources or knowledge of console programming to make the game shine. While CD Projekt has around 300 employees, they're mainly a publishing company. The RED Studio, which developed Witcher 1 and 2 is probably relatively small.

@Persistantthug

Cause 9 times out of 10 they start screwing over their fanbase, and the quality of the games.

They didn't say it was never coming to consoles. Just that they're focused on the PC right now.

If they had to halt the development of the game JUST to put versions out also on PS3/360, then it can definitely hamper the quality of the game. What a lot of people don't get is that time is also a resource along side of money.

Simon_Brezhnev3028d ago

I'll probably buy it on PC and PS3.

pr0digyZA3028d ago

those graphics are insane.

FFXI1013028d ago

I hope it'll come to the console, I really like the first one except the fact that it doesn't work well with the windows 7.

Sez 3028d ago

Then maybe you shouldn't use a pirated windows 7. Because it works great with my version of windows7. Now if you would have said vista I would have agreed with you statement.

iamgoatman3028d ago

Because he has a problem running it in Windows 7 it MUST be because he's using a pirated version. /s

Don't be so quick to judge, bugs and compatibility issues don't effect everyone. For example, I have a problem with mouse stuttering in Fallout 3 with Win 7, and because not everyone has it, does that make me a pirate as well?

Sez 3028d ago

Sorry if I offened you. I apologize if I insult him by claiming he's running a pirated version. My bad

I have mines running on windows 7 and it works with no problems. I had it running on vista when I first brought the witcher and it ran like shit.

kraze073027d ago

Im running it on W7 with no problems at all. Never had any problems running it on Vista 64-bit either.
