VG247 writes: CD Projekt announced during its livestream conference earlier that an extra four minutes worth of CGI cutscenes are being added to the Witcher 2 story in the Xbox 360 version.
Fouuuuur Minuuuuutes ZOMG !!!!!
Now I HAVE to buy it
That spot is reserved for Skyrim.
Lol, CGI cutscenes.
Agreed. Gears 3 has CGI cutscenes, which is bizarre because there are plenty of scenes which look nicer that are rendered in-game.
Nah...I ain't gonna believe ya that they look better in game. They did pre rendered scenes because the engine or 360 couldn't handle what they did in the CG(I would say the Engine)
They certainly have nicer settings on for those scenes, but the video is compressed so heavily that it does actually look worse, IMO
I'm gonna have to get this on the 360 now
they also said that they're patching the CGI into the PC version when the 360 version launches
the bad thing is this game is going to be so very low res on console, I'd imagine 1024x600 like call of duty, or worse they may have to pull an alan wake and make it 960x544 for real. The game is amazing though but honestly, they should just wait till the new xbox launches in 2012, hopefully that would be able to handle the withcer 2 in 1080p with 4x anti aliasing!
Uhh, the new Xbox isn't launching next year. That's the Wii U. Second, what makes you think that they would remake the Witcher 2 AGAIN?
Wow! Totally awesome! /sarcasm Who needs mods,4X AA,or true HD? The 360 version gets an extra 4 minutes!
At least the 360 gets it.
@tickticktick True.With the lack of games on the 360,it will have the release time all to itself.
AMAZING, EARTH SHATTERING! 4 extra MINUTES? Wow, how did they come up with such geniality? No, seriously, this is news? What's next, different camera angles during cutscenes?
At which point of the video is their CGI? because I sure as hell didn't see any CGI cutscenes! The graphics look ok.
This article totally takes it out of context. They said in the conference that the CGI scene will be coming out for the pc in a patch at the same exact time the xbox version is released.
Boo, CGI cutscenes. The game look too good already. I don't see the point in that.
those CGI cuscenes are made by platinum image (baginski oscar nominee made that studio) and yeah even in witcher 1 intro and epilog were awasome : http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
now thats a bonus feature
Ermmmm, isn't like the whole game CGI? Computer Generated Imagery, I mean, I don't think The Witcher 2 was made in a calculator...I think...
CGI implies it was made and rendered in 3D software like Maya or 3DS Max.
But I thought DVD was like totally holding PS3 back?
I hope there HD cutscenes for a change, it seems every 360 cutscene is sub-HD for some reason.
