The developer behind The Witcher 2 has offered a statement regarding a possible version of the game for the PlayStation 3.
To all the pc player's in here is this game good??
Its a great game, but I've got a pretty decent PC and it still has to run on the lowest settings to even operate. The frame rate chugs along and the graphics are obviously terrible (on my PC), so if you dont have a gaming ready PC I highly suggest just waiting for a console version. At least in my case its guaranteed to look and run better than my current version.It looks like a PS2 game on the PC I got.
sorry Focker 420, i have to disagree. The reason it probably runs so bad is because even between ultra high setting (which I can run minus the uber thing) and low settings it looks really good. To say it looks like a ps2 is a huge under rating of the game. It's an excellent game!
i think they did this move since its a straight forward simple port because the xbox is like a locked PC simply personally if payed alot of money on my new gaming PC and im going to get it soon on it other wise i think the xbox is going to have a descent port if the PS3 get it then that would be cool from the reviews it looks like a great game and more player = better for the industry so why not ?
" I've got a pretty decent PC and it still has to run on the lowest settings to even operate." You don't have decent PC then. Low settings are amazing fast and still look v good.
I have it on PC, but if they release it on the PS3, I'd buy it there, too. Why? To support the greatest RPG in recent times.
i agree 100% with u
Wanna support the developer directly buy afew copies of GOG all your money goes to the developer. Why would you want to pay 60usd for a console version with more then half the money going of for: packaging, retailer margin, Royalty to console maker Save your Cash buy a copy of GOG if you want to support developer it would more then equal buying afew copies on console. @below he said he wanted to support the RPG, best way to do that with least expense is buying of GOG directly. Developer gets all the money. He would have to buy multiple copies of console version from retail to equal the support of buying just 1 copy of GOG. Yea i know sucks to pay royalties to console makers lol.
Or alternatively he could buy the game on a separate platform then the one he currently has so he can...I dunno...play it on something aside from his PC just a thought
I already use Steam and I don't want to use another digital distributor; I'd rather have all my games either on Steam or on my bookshelf. Btw, it does suck to pay royalties, but selling more copies helps make up for the losses they make because of the royalty fees and they can see that porting it over wasn't a wasted effort. Sure people can buy it from GOG, but if they make it for the consoles and console owners buy it, all of the work that went into it can pay off when they see that it sold a ton and they've gained new fans. @TheBand1t That's exactly why. Lol
I dont want to wait for patches, stupid excuses, as for premiere they fcked it up greatly, running this game on max details(or even normal) without trouble is a near VooDoo experience..., to bad for you and good for CDPR is that they disabled gameforums... in Poland we have www.50mb.pl site, that is a parody of marketing and PR steps of CDPR i wont belive in any of marketing crap talk, hope console gamers will get tested and optimized product, for now PC gamers was a beta testers and they even paid for it... btw CEs were sent damaged (geralts head) ppl waited 2 days for activation, game has bugs and PC players praise them.... for what? Pirated version runs smoothly, legit dont... and a joke at the end of my post... what patch 1.1 is? its an GOG exe file, without drms... ps. console version will have to get tested by brand owner, i like it, coz on PC you can realese any shit you can...
So you'll be buying it on 360 then?
“We would love to bring Witcher 2 to more platforms, but right now have nothing to announce or say about our plans.”
It wasn't a flat out "no" so it gives hope to those who own a PS3, but not a good enough PC to run it or an Xbox 360.
Dont you just love it!!!
Epic says the same thing about Gears franchise... And it will never happen. They just say this to not anger PS3 only owners.
Yea but CD projekts does not have a 3 game deal with Microsoft like Epic does :-/ and you better believe Gears is coming at a later date for the PS3 if you didn't notice by all the hinting epic has been giving you ;-)
actually Microsoft helps them developing Witcher 2 on Xbox, read more of polish sites... btw. two of thiers main engine programmers left to Naughty Dog in 2009
@b_one "actually Microsoft helps them developing Witcher 2 on Xbox" What does that have to do with anything I just said?
looks like someone's already scared. when MGS collection got announced, i thought you wanted the games to be shared by a larger audience?
Just like Mass effect? What about bioshock? LOL, bt I understand your concern, it would suck to lose the halfway exclusivity of a poor port, and one of the last few exclusive games on the xbox360.
Well said. There are people out there so convinced games will remain exclusive. Not sure whether Kon is trolling or genuinely believes it so.
and what about Tekken and MGS and FF13 and Dark Souls? Dude get over yourself
PS3 version at a later date confirmed.
So this basically confirms that its coming to ps3 in late 2012 with updated gfx and all add-ons included on 1 bluray? LOL
Haha the console version will probably be sub hd with 25fps and low res textues, except the console lot will be told it uses 100% of the console haha, much like most of the garbage spewed these days. People will naturally be dissapointed when a comparison will be done against PC versions.
of course it will be dumbed down, it was made for PC, however it will still give the same experience as PC on consoles, just look less pretty. You must have your head in the dirt if you think console graphics are bad, they are more than enough to have a great experience in gaming. Nobody likes a PC elitist
@SweatyFlorida Yea, I'm a pc gamer but I cringe when I read stupid elitist comments like this one. Every platform has their little fanboy group of elitists, but pc gamers can be kinda harsh sometimes =\ Anyways I'm sure the game will be great on all platforms, only a few graphics changes here and there but to be honest the game still looks incredible on ANY graphical setting.
I was highly offended to hear the game would only be coming to PC and Xbox360 in A-Typical PC oriented Developer fashion. I realize that is their expertise tho but I am sure If it meant getting another game under their belt Sony is willing to help them port it. Thats the wierd thing I find about situations like this. Sony has an entire Developer program dedicated to helping them port or make games for PS3 to the best of their ability. And with what we have seen companies like Naughty Dog do, there is no game that can be done on Console and not done equally or better for PS3.
You "were" highly offended? Were does the developer say the game is coming to ps3?
@Kingdoms Where did I say that it was? I was just saying I was offended as I am interested in the game but I be damned if I'm getting a super computer to run it or purchasing a whole nother console just for it. They have been working on making the series multiplat ever since the first, then they said they were concentrating solely on the Second so that one would be on all HD platforms. Next you thing you only hear about PC version but surprisingly there is a console version, ...but just 360. Its not like it can't run on PS3, as its running on 360 and we know how that goes. So this makes me inclined to believe the studio has trouble working with the architecture(as many have for the PS3). My thing is Sony will help with that, just gotta ask.
Make it happen!
Wait 2 people are mad? Why lol
All over again, and remember how that turned out! Some will be happy, others will be in denial.
before I decide
No say PS3,this game in 360/PC :D
Just take your time CD project Red for both platforms.
i couildnt care if it does come to the ps3 as or not for right now im waiting for ffvs 13 to come out exclusive on ps3 and kindgom hearts 3 gets announced for the ps3 that will fix my jrpg this gen
FFv13 and kingdom hearts 3 is my dream rpg year
dont bring the game to ps3 unless you do it justice and know wot ur doing on ps3 hardware lol,other wise it will end up lookn terrible
It would be great if they can get it on more than just PC and Xbox 360. More people should be able to enjoy it.
That would be awesome!
I hope this is true. I want to experience this game!
I keep wondering... why is anyone surprised? If people had bothered to read up on the news for the game instead of ignoring it, they'd know CDP ALWAYS intended to try porting it to both consoles. It's a bit silly to act like this is some kind of bombshell.
Hopefully, it's a timed MS exclusive.
I gladly welcome this on the PS3.
u better cuz i dont own a decent PC or an xbox (tsk y would i buy xbox, what a joke) so it will be really great if you port this to ps3.
I certainly hope this comes out for the ps3. Maybe the beginning of next year? Fall is way too crowded.
