Hopefully PS3 gets The Witcher too. I've heard nothing but great things about it.

EVILDEAD3602603d ago

Skyrim
Deus Ex

No Witcher 2 on the 360? Although it's been rumored for awhile now..it's great to hear it is true..

Life is good

I have a 360 so this would have been awesome news BUT I just shelled some cash over for a kickass gaming laptop...think I'll buy the PC version instead.

Anyway this is great news for 360 owners, from what I've read and seen this game it's going to be a helluva gem.

SuperLupe2603d ago

God heard my prayers :)

Witcher 2 + Skyrim + Dark Souls = one happy rpg fan.

But of course wont get them all at the same time, too much goodness for one man to handle.

@ I_find_it_funny:
Click your user icon in the upper right of the page and click "settings" in the left column. On the settings page, the bottom option gives you the option to hide people with 1 bubble.

:) Hopefully it actually works!

the fact that this was officially announced today and not on MS's press conference on monday makes me think that it's coming to PS3 as well

also quality will suffer, 360 hardware can't handle the graphics shown on high ends PCs with this game

death2smoochie2603d ago

"also quality will suffer, 360 hardware can't handle the graphics shown on PC"

Nor can the PS3.
The irony is the only possible console that can handle the visuals without too much compromises would be the Wii 2 if those rumored specifications turn out to be correct

xPhearR3dx2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

If it was coming to PS3 as well, they would have said so since it's their conference and not MS....

Also they already said the quality wouldn't suffer.

kingdoms2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

Yes wasting time on a game that is already out during a busy E3 scedual is the way to go :p

360 can't handle pc graphics? Seems to be doing better than other consoles. I'm half way through crysis 2

***If it was coming to PS3 as well, they would have said so since it's their conference and not MS....***

I'm hoping they're holding off to announce it during Sony's conference. Possible, just not very probable. One can hope, though.

If it doesn't come to PS3, though, can always try it out on the 360.

The plan was *always* to bring Witcher 2 to consoles as stated by the devs.

I'd think hiring PS3 programmers and the voiced intent to port it to PS3 means a PS3 version is coming at some point.

A simultaneous release surprise? Who knows? But it would not surprise me if it came later since CDP are, like most devs, less adept with the black box.

xPhearR3dx2603d ago

Honestly who's surprised? Not meeeeeeeeeeee

dc12603d ago

Its a great game for sure. I hope it comes out for the ps3 as well (I just spent 70hrs with it on the pc with my PS3 controller )

XBox only members: be sure to pick this up!

guigsy2603d ago

They had to cancel the Witcher 1 for consoles due to financial reasons. I can only assume it's 360 only because of the more straightforward porting process.

Inside_out2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

.
What happen to announcing it at E3...M$ can't be happy about this. Maybe it will come out on the PS3 as well.

@Phear..Oh, K...thanx...anything else that might interest the console brethren???

xPhearR3dx2603d ago (Edited 2603d ago )

It was announced at CDP Conference that's going on right now. Has nothing to do with MS.

EDIT: Comes out at the end of the year. No word on PS3 version, quality wont suffer.

malamdra2603d ago

it's probably because it's coming to PS3 as well

Max_Dissatisfaction2602d ago

If its coming to PS3 too, why announce just the 360 since it is their own conference and not Microsoft's?

Schism202603d ago

Hell yes! Definitely gonna get this game.
