This game looks sick but I am getting it for consoles though.
xiren187  +   1707d ago
I'll most likely get it on the console as well. It just feels weird playing a RPG on the PC
I_find_it_funny  +   1707d ago
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

PC Exclusive.
tepkisiz  +   1707d ago
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.
RedDead  +   1707d ago
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

you do know pc is an rpg platform do you? Fps feels even weirder on console! It's so limiting!
eggbert  +   1707d ago
implying its not PC exclusive...
Pandamobile  +   1707d ago
Enjoy waiting til 2012.
Winning  +   1706d ago
Has it been confirmed for consoles? I just don't have the knowledge or money to build a rig.
il-mouzer  +   1706d ago

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

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!!
lelo2play  +   1706d ago
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.

Whats an ATI equivalent of a Nvidia 8800?
zaz12  +   1707d ago
something like hd3000
tepkisiz  +   1707d ago
HD 3870 or 4830

now way the 4xxx series.

High end 3xxx more like it.
ATiElite  +   1706d ago
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.
Ice2ms  +   1707d ago
Yay my laptop can run it, day 1 buy PC, like its supposed to be played
zaz12  +   1707d ago
it is only on pc though
Ice2ms  +   1707d ago
more than likely timed exclusive for PC
Pandamobile  +   1707d ago
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".
Ice2ms  +   1707d ago
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.
evrfighter  +   1707d ago
Timed exclusives are 100% percent confirmed. It's likely to be coming to consoles is not 100%. Pc exclusive until then.

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 :\
pr0digyZA  +   1706d ago
@ 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.

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.
plb  +   1707d ago
FYI as I'm sure any PC gamer knows. Currently you can preorder this from Steam right now for $44.99. Good deal.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   1706d ago
This the same price with a few extras http://www.gog.com/en/page/...
CoLD FiRE  +   1705d ago
If only all good games cost that much. A game like this for $45 is hard to resist even if you're broke.
kevnb  +   1707d ago
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.

EpsilonTeam  +   1706d ago
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.

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 :/
ATiElite  +   1706d ago
Canada? How is it going way up there in America's surburb? Just kidding. you Canadians bring a classy touch to the Western Hemisphere.

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.
DFresh  +   1706d ago
Seriously a Quad Core to run Witcher 2 when both Crysis/Crysis 2 can run fine on a Dual Core fine.
Apollyn  +   1706d ago
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
