"The Witcher 2 is just two months away from its official release and for those who are wondering what the system requirements are, we got you covered." - JPS
This game looks sick but I am getting it for consoles though.
I'll most likely get it on the console as well. It just feels weird playing a RPG on the PC
it's coming to consoles 100% but a bit later, don't have gaming PC and not getting one anytime soon, so yea :) PC version will be better? I couldn't care less I still don't know what original game is about, I tried playing Witcher1 on my laptop but it was a mistake lol
You may wait months for the console version, which will not be as good as the PC version. The game is being designed PC-only right now, which means they will have to start over for console versions, which never is a good thing for quality and development time..
What a comedian.
Could be over a year for the Console version... Do you guys really wanna wait, also, feels weird playing an RPG on a pc? I take it you never played a RPG on Pc then... Wow they are fu**ing quality specs. All I need is a GPU to Recommend it. 260 is €120 these days
@xiren wow this has to be one of the most retarded posts I have ever seen on N4G, good job kid
you do know pc is an rpg platform do you? Fps feels even weirder on console! It's so limiting!
implying its not PC exclusive...
Enjoy waiting til 2012.
Has it been confirmed for consoles? I just don't have the knowledge or money to build a rig.
@winning no, but CD Projekt themselves said it is a "possibility", now it maybe a port or whatever but I'd suggest you get it on the PC. you'll miss on the mods and sdk tools which CD projekt will surely bring forward to the pc platform
@ShadyDevil PLLLAEEEAZE IF YUO FUIND A CONSOLEZ COPIAZ LET ME KNOES KTHANKSBIE /s
If it comes to console!! I wish u good luck!! as long as PC version looks like a pc version should Im fine with that!!
OH boy... i'm just waiting for my GTX560 to arrive next week, to join it with my quad core. It will make Witcher 2 dance when it launches. ... wait... few... more... days... to play Crysis 2 PC.
Not sure if my fossil PC could handle this lol.
I dont need to see the requirments i know it can but is it out on consoles? not a very console from what i remember of part 1 but i guess it will be now :/
Whats an ATI equivalent of a Nvidia 8800?
something like hd3000
HD 3870 or 4830
now way the 4xxx series. High end 3xxx more like it.
Good question. ATi HD 3870 is about equal to a 8800gt.
I hope your not looking to go out and buy one because these cards are like 5 years and perform the same as a console or slightly better.
if you wanna know if your PC can run a game, go here.
You can get a nice DX11 card for under $100 if your on a tight budget.
Yay my laptop can run it, day 1 buy PC, like its supposed to be played
it is only on pc though
more than likely timed exclusive for PC
It's not a timed exclusive. It's a PC exclusive that will likely have console ports in the future. I've never heard anyone refer to Half-Life 2 as a "timed exclusive".
Its the same thing ... Timed exclusive - A game that is available on a certain platform (This case PC) and will be ported to other platforms after an elapsed time has passed. Consider yourself educated.
Timed exclusives are 100% percent confirmed. It's likely to be coming to consoles is not 100%. Pc exclusive until then. Learn2edumucateYourself
So PC payed them to make it exclusive? Screw these people, I want my Wii version!! Edit: Can I run this on a Pentium 2 226MHz and 32MB of built in Graphics memory? seriously guys I need to know, and if I can, should I be able to output it on 1080p res.? game look interesting!
@Organization XII It's like asking if consoles could run Half Life 2 on 1080p with 4xAA :\
@ Ice2ms I would say timed exclusive is when the developers know they are making the port or are already half way through or more in developing it and are just waiting for the rights to end. Where as this is still up in the air, and no one has paid them to keep it on the PC so its their choice. Just look at the first witcher which did not end up getting the cross over, anything can happen.
The only System Requirement I meet is having Windows XP.Damn, I need to get a new PC soon.
I suggest you wait for summer, when new cheap%powerful AMD parts are coming. They practically put a quad core CPU and an HD 5570 GPU on one small chip.AWESOME!
Waiting is not a problem, but thanks for the info.
FYI as I'm sure any PC gamer knows. Currently you can preorder this from Steam right now for $44.99. Good deal.
This the same price with a few extras http://www.gog.com/en/page/...
If only all good games cost that much. A game like this for $45 is hard to resist even if you're broke.
Already preordered, cant believe folks are saying its weird playing a pc style rpg on pc... Lol im pretty sure it will have gamepad support and its easy as pie.to hook up a pc to an hdtv these days.. Just an fyi to ignorant console gamers.
+1 pc+ 50" plasma ftw
agree im using my tv as my monitor for my new pc im building.
Ugh..I play on a lappy with an 8400. Dammit, this sucks.
Beat the recommended by a fair little bit with my cheap £400 1-year-old PC :D And it looks so good - brilliant optimisation.
Getting this day one, loved the first one.
I love every bit of tech i own, but since i have a very powerful pc (3x580gtx) i'll be playing this at 1080p everything max and 3D. Nice to have choices.
3x 580 NICE!!!!!!!! i can only afford one gtx 560 for my new pc lol
I'm just waiting to get paid in a few days, then a 580 will be all mine! :D
damn you guys lol. i want a 580 now :( lol ill just buy a 590! XD haha
<--jealous!! 3x580s, very impressive! :) I'm fine tho... i7 firstname.lastname@example.org 6gigs DDR3 1600 1xGTX 580 P6T Deluxe V2 all stuffed in a HAF 932 (can't wait to get another 580) looking forward to this! @hellzsupernova: just get another 560 (when you can afford it) and you are now faster than a 580 :)
They will butcher it on consoles.
Can't wait to play it on my 13" Macbook Pro..don't hate.............
You can play the Witcher 2 on a Macbook pro? Oh your using bootcamp huh?
Lol was only being sarcastic. Wish I could tbh. I'm wondering if, even with bootcamp, my pro could run it. It's something I'll look into I think. Who knows! O.o
Collector's edition (PC) for me. Had to pre-order from EB Games US though, b/c EB Games Canada doesn't have it :/
Canada? How is it going way up there in America's surburb? Just kidding. you Canadians bring a classy touch to the Western Hemisphere.
(I'll say anything to cheer up people who have to live next door to Sarah Palin)
I never take offense to those types of jokes. I know it's all in good fun anyways :)
i cant wait, im giddy with excitment.
The Witcher 2 is gonna be AWESOME!
I know CCp has talked about porting TW2 down to consoles but they have not made an official announcement therefore TW2 is a PC Exclusive.
I'm pretty sure they will port it so the consolers can get an awesome RPG.
Seriously a Quad Core to run Witcher 2 when both Crysis/Crysis 2 can run fine on a Dual Core fine. Jeez. :O
Current PC rapes the specs with ease. Ah well I just want an excuse for Emmy next system.. Currently prices at £8500 with me building it. But until mine doesn't run games the other half will kill me for getting another Can't wait for this game seriously
Yeah I just got a new rig recently so I'm good for this. Looks sick.
it can now got a new pc for this game gonna be fuckin awesome
yea I can run it!! :)
Play it on whatever if you get a chance - enough said. Now I can finally go buy my video card, I've been waiting for these details.
Hell yes I can! Intel i7 870 cooling it with my Frio EVGA P55 LE MB 8Gigs RAM HD Radeon 5870 with my beautiful 26inch monitor
