Konrad from GamerSheep.com speculates how The Witcher 2- one of the best looking PC games to date- will port over and look like on the Xbox 360 by doing a side by side comparison video of the different graphical settings in the game.
Well yeah, obviously lol Does it matter? No. Am I still looking forward to buying it on 360 because I don't have a gaming PC? Yeah.
Yes, honestly, who would have thought that the 360 can run this game the way a expensive PC can run it. And still it will look great. Shame on this article.
why does everyone label a gaming pc as expensive. we dont go around sayin something wont work on a "cheap" console. its not expensive to us as its our way of gaming. i dont think about the price when it comes to quality.
Well not all of us have enough resources to "not think about price"...
lol at the question!!! Hell no!!! Its going to look wayyy better than PC! It will use a new system update in the works that will enable X360 to advance its ram and GPU in ways never before seen... /s Man, its obvious it will look a little bit inferior. Its a 2011 PC game for crying out loud...
wow... this question is stupid, the title should be modified to remove the QUESTION Mark. you think Xbox 360 is going to pull off DX11? you think Xbox 360 is going to Tessellate the way a GTX 580x2 overclocked, liquid cooled does? NO! all your stupid questions always = NO yet, the "gaming media" still asks them in articles on N4G. Where is Cat? enforce the rules gdi..
@BubbleSniper The Witcher 2 is a DX9 game... Uses almost a gig of VRAM for the highest resolution textures tho so good luck getting that running on a system with 512MB of total system RAM
Of course the graphics will be dumbed down. What an idiotic question. PC Witcher 2 is one of the best looking games on PC, running DX11 and 16xAA etc. The xbox can't pull that off - noone ever expected it to. It's still cool it's coming to xbox though.
Woops it's not DX11 - my bad.
why did this wannabe crap get approved. this thing has no idea what it's going to look like and so making up your make belief side by side, lol, wow. what a loser idea. Actually there's already been gameplay vids on youtube and it looks incredible, better than PC unless you have a high end PC which most don't have.
And the prize for dumbest question of the year goes to... This article!
this should have been common sense 101
Will The Witcher 2 graphics be dumbed down on the Xbox 360? WTF do you expect? 2005 360"S"-US$299.99 C$299.99 GB£199.99 €249.99 AU$449.00 NZ$499.00 vs 2011 Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 ~$797.88
Not this again, really? Haven't we had enough of the PS3 better then 360 graphics? Their both equally crappy.
This is nothing to do with PS3, The Witcher 2 is only coming out on Xbox (and is already out on PC).
LOL, Comparing a console version to the PC version? Makes no since to me.
. ...NOWHERE near what the haters will be hoping for...lol...They have already said that it will be comparable to Crysis 2. Crysis 2 is one of the best looking games ever on consoles this gen. http://youtu.be/kF67XFXq_ys The PC is not a closed system. EVERY PC is different. The Xbox 360 version will be the most consistent version of Witcher 2 and it will be the same across ALL 360 consoles. Here's some off screen footage... http://youtu.be/whuoHucF20E http://youtu.be/pu9UyAVBk6g Official 360 Witcher 2 trailer... http://youtu.be/SZPbeoP94I4 Will it be perfect...NO, the PC version isn't perfect as well but it should be consistent, hopefully with out the crash bugs that are widely reported in the PC version.
The developers said they will be aiming for Medium PC settings on the X360 but it would definitely be above minimum. It was during an interview with Digital Foundry on the eurogamer website, find it if you want to confirm it yourself. Nowhere did I see any reference to Crysis 2. The game looks great on lowest to highest settings, I have tested it myself, so X360 players will get a great looking and overall great game. But it will not be in the same league as the PC version and thats not fanboyism, its just an observation and estimation from many other similar comparisons. All your talk about consistency and crashes are hollow, because if you knew anything about the PC version of the game you would realise how foolish you sound. Its a great thing to get this game on the X360 and while it is far from perfect, both in design(though very close here) and gameplay(fighting needed some work, same with the endgame stuff somewhat) its a great game plain and simple and the best RPG I have played in a long time and the best looking game I've seen as well, enjoy the fact that you are going to get to play it and leave the comparisons and fanboyism to the websites who actually make money of it.
Well said despair my thoughts exactly.
We already seen a ton of comparisons is this moron late to the party? Everybody on the web couldn't believe how close the two versions are. Some pics actually looked better on the 360. All of a sudden becoming stupid asking questions that are so dumb it can only be seen as baiting ps3 fanboys makes you look bitter. Sounds like: not everyone gets the game but the 360 version isn't as good always. They went through the trouble with this, they followed the game enough where they seen all the 360 content where the differences arr not even worth writing about. When I first seen a comparison I had to read the description showing me what pic belonged to what platform in the first pics.
It was confirmed on Beyond3D that the 360 screens they released were bullshots. They weren't crazy unrealistic, but they were fake in that edges were absolutely perfect.
yes they will. as would a ps3 version
of course, doesn't mean the games gonna look bad.
^ This. I think at this point, we can all trust CD Projekt Red.
I dont care how it looks i just wanna play it. Its going to be the best rpg on consoles and even if the graphcs are cut in half it will look better than most games..
@Video Going Through Puberty Eh
At first I thought it was a joke, then I thought it was a young boy, then I thought it was a girl. Now I am unsure. Whichever it was, I couldn't stand listening to it. I had to mute the damn thing.
Does feaces come out when you try to take a shit? Seriously- what a retarded question. Come see what it looks like on my PC then you'll realise.
but I think the proper saying is "does a bear shit in the woods?"
gameplay> graphics look at dragon age 1. The game was unplayable on consoles. Had nothing to do with graphics
Obviously, the graphics are to be better than the lowest quality of the PC version, obviously. But not the highest quality of the PC version.
going to buy it any way looks like a great game
Pretty ridiculously bad title. Of course the graphics will be worse. Do people not realize that the hardware on the 360 is over half a decade old? Playing Witcher 2 on modern Pc with ultra settings is a thing to behold. Sure it will look just fine on consoles and I am a console owner also. But I think its almost comical that people come to expect console games to look as good as a Pc game. They really need to start filtering out the trash articles. A pc game unless a direct port from a console will ALWAYS look better. *edit had to lol at the two 12 year olds with a 300$ dell pc who "disagreed". It's not a debate. Its fact.
it will still look great on xbox360 for sure .. even on low setting on PC , this game look stunning .
It's not a question of "if", but "by how much". From the looks of it, not by a whole lot surprisingly. P.S. I know this isn't 360 footage being shown here. I judging it from the 360 footage that was shown before.
I just hope CDP can make it runs at smooth 30fps,because the videos already seen the graphics and arte syte look amazing for the 360 version.My only problem its really the caps framerate that seems low.
Why do PC elitists only care about graphics? Is anybody else getting completely sick of these people?
Why would you not want to play something at its highest form? Hey want eat at a michelin star winning restaurant or TGI Fridays... HRMM I'll go with the latter. It's not that we only care about graphics but we were answering a rather idiotic article title. I don't see why you wouldn't want the best possible all things being equal?
It's not going to match it but it will be close. But most importantly the gameplay will be exact which is the main thing.
They already said they are aiming for the medium graphic setting on PC.....
The Witcher 2 PC even on minimum settings still is impressive. I'm sure the 360 version will look good. CD Projekt Red are great Devs. even if it looks like Haze it still is an AWESOME game. WAY better than Dragon Age or any other RPG for that matter.
Man that question is such a joke! It has to be dumbed down(which isnt a bad thing anyway) to run on that system. The game on minimum settings looks quite impressive, xbox dudes are in for some real treat ;)
Yes, as simple as that. Just as they would also be "dumbed" down on PS3. You can NOT expect a high end PC game to look as good as a console game nowadays. Its just not possible. They may be close. But PC's just have so many other resources available to them they can take advantage of that. I mean come on, the PS3 and 360 only have 512MB of ram. I know several people who have 16GB's of ram, this alone is a major difference. Accept it people, PC is just currently better technically then current gen consoles. And all of this is coming from a CONSOLE gamer. Yes i do have a gaming PC, and Yes i did buy Witcher 2 for PC and i can run it at max settings, but my consoles get 10X plus more gametime then my PC does. LOL the majority of my PC gaming is actually Minecraft of late.
