TVGB: "CD Project, the developer of recent PC RPG hit The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and the operation behind GOG.com, will have some big news on both fronts next week."
Looks like shits hitting the fan on June 2nd. That mega episode of GTTV with Skyward Sword live demo/ Uncharted 3 Co-op footage/ Soul Calibur V gameplay, Kojima Productions announcements and now this. Hmmm hmmmm mmm. This might be the new Witcher game that was mentioned the other day, which I think is probably Witcher 2 for consoles.
I hope so. Even if it looks slightly worse (which c'mon, it will), Witcher 2 would still be among the best looking games on any console. I'd take some of that action. The constant hinting from CD itself and now the ESRB listing are too much imo for it to NOT happen. Hopefully :)
plus, Witcher 2 is reportedly to feel better playing it with a game pad versus keyboard and mouse. Its almost as though they designed the game with a pad in mind.
I think KB/M is better in this case. Just my opinion though.
It does play better with a pad,and it is a great game.
I played it with a 360 pad... Works fantastic IMO
yeah there's lots of dudes playing it with a pad on PC and say it works very well but i just enjoy playing RPGs with mouse/kb. i have a 5 button mouse where two of the buttons are on the left side. one of them is set to pull sword/use sign and the other is set to sheathe my sword. it works very well how i have it set up. i'm finally on act two and haven't ran into a situation yet where i wished i was using a pad instead. regardless, it's an amazing game and i hope they port it for others to enjoy as much as i have. best action-RPG i've ever played.
"Its almost as though they designed the game with a pad in mind." Well, they did. It wasn't by accident. It was shown in that very first leaked video and subsequently talked up by CDP.
The Witcher 2 for consoles doesn't sound incredible. Will people say that's incredible? It would be a nice announcement but not incredible. If anything I have a feeling it will be only for 360.
Yeah once it comes out on consoles i can hear fox news screaming now.
hope this game comes to consoles so everyone could enjoy this title and share player experiences
As long as it never turn into a casual game later on it's cool! I kinda get nervous when PC devs go into the console market! Next thing you know the witcher 3 will be easy & more accessible to a wider audience.
Please make it on consoles.
"We're gonna release a proper patch FOR REALZ this time, LOL" :o
Witcher 2 PS3 Exclusive
LOL...that's funny. Considering it already works beautifully with the 360 controller, and porting is a cinch from PC -> 360....NO.
I play mostly on my PS3 but also on X360, I hope this is NOT a exclusive on any system as I think everyone should enjoy this game! Heres crossing my fingers for a great console edition!
Don't worry. Fairly sure, it's not exclusive to any console. That's just something some of the people around here have latched on to since that easter egg. Every other leak/rumor and official interview with the devs have suggested this is not the case at all.
coming to consoles, Both PS3 and 360, so I can compare the 2.
It really is a shame this game hasn't sold more on PC, and that people could potentially pay for the PC version are still pirating it. The game only has about 200,000 sales right now, almost 2 weeks after release. I know it's on PC, but it's such a good game and it doesn't use DRM. Looking at how many copies have already been pirated... ugh, it's just disgusting.
Where do you get your figures from ?
I have my sources. Like Wikipedia, VGchartz, everything on the internet is a lie. I KID! I have NPD data to compare. I'm not a lying asshole. Just an asshole who tends to speak the truth. We'll see how the sales improve over time but it's a PC game so don't expect too much. I'm thinking about 1.25 million copies of the series of six or seven months--but that's a prediction based on how much successful PC games tend to sell on average.
Heres hoping us console gamers can raise those nummbers up realy high and giving CD Project the cred they need...AND deserve!
You're taking your figures from the european retail sales that were posted earlier, they don't include digital sales. You don't speakdatruth.
lol, then sales figures that publishers post must be complete and utter lies. Unless you think that "European" stands for "International" or "Worldwide" retailers--then you're just a dumb ass. That is ALL retailers worldwide. It's VGcharts, it's released press data, NPD data combining digital and physical sales. Basically it's GoG... it's Steam... it's D2D and it's physical media. Deal with it bitch--it's piracy. Which also, happens to be a bitch. PC Gaming may seem pretty well alive, but many people who "claim" they bought this game just claim they bought it to get some sympathy in comments and feel slightly guilt free for pirating it. That's it.
Show us these sales numbers then.
200 000 copies in two weeks ain't no joke, especially considering that's just european retail. Not every game sells like call of duty day 1. Most console exclusives sell less than that world wide, except the few games everybody has to have like rockstar titles for example.
if you are going off NPD remember that PC games usually sell better in the EU etc than the USA and that digital sales make up over half of new PC game sales these days so the game has probably sold 350-450 thousand by now easy, even tho the game deserves way more IMO. Add in the fact that they were also selling the game directly through GOG.com which they own and I imagine that they are probably nearing making their money back already, and it should have good legs as it is a pretty high spec game so as more people upgrade their PCs they will pick it up like they did for Crysis which sold 3 million copies eventually. Also keep in mind that unlike console games PC games don't have to pay licensing fee per copy an that the profit margins are higher on DD copies than retail, plus there hasn't been a tone of advertising for W2 outside of a few web ads.
I hope it's coming to both consoles.
I am farming stuff at chapter one still on the Witcher 2 and got almost 15hs of gaming so far. The Witcher 2 is a GOOD game but I still preffer RPG style of a Bethsoft used in a Fallout 3 and Elder Scroll's 3 and 4. Yah, TW2 technicaly speacking it destorys Oblivion and might still have more grass ,light effect then Skyrim. But don't forget that Skyrim is a huge open world game like other Elder scrolls games. Because of that it can't have the same graphic level of the withcer 2 and still have a world two 4 times bigger, two or three times the characters (voices and videos) and still fit in 1 or 2 DVD9. Art direction can do miracles and with it Bethsoft can make Skyrim a very beautifull game to our eyes.
Ya with recycled character models, actors, randomly generated quests etc... every bethesda game has been worse than the last with more and more corners cut.
The amount of content in the Witcher 2 is nothing to sneeze at considering the hours of dialogue and that there are 2 different versions of the second act depending on a decision that you make. Then there is the fact that the DLC is going to all be free, considering the horse armour that Bethesda charged for on Oblivion...
ESRB listing it for the 360 and no PS3 listing, CDP are a PC based developer and a small team, makes me think that M$ has snatch the exclusive publish of Witcher 2 on the 360.
The witcher 1 and 2, to consoles. On one disc(ps3).
I want expansion in Niilfgaard which will tell what happened to the world after final act.
The 360 version will probably have like 5 discs. While PS3 can have both withcer 1 and 2 on a single Blu-Ray. PS3 FTW
even PC version only 2 disc...and including all texture
yea once they take out the very high resolution textures they should be able to get it all on 2 discs easy even with less compression.
