"Comparing the patched (but not Enhanced) PC version of the Witcher running at close to max settings, with the newly launched Xbox 360 Enhanced Edition." - Eurogamer
of these comparisons, its as if PC gamers need reminding of how powerful there PC's are. We all no which will look better. I can't wait to play withcher 2 on my 360
It's a comparison to see how close the 360 version is. Not to show how much better the PC version is. I think the 360 version looks good and they should be proud to have gotten it like that. Of course it isn't close to the PC version imo but still. Rumor was TW2 couldn't even run on Consoles before this. They did well/
Nah it could always run on consoles, they even say that they could have pushed the PC version further but didn't because they were always planning a console version and also didnt want to alienate the people with lesser graphic cards (ie crysis). They said every now and again they would check if it worked. Heres the dev diary of the engine where they discuss what I said, part 2:44 is where they talk about it being designed as a multiplatform engine.(remember this video came out before PC version) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
One improvement I've noticed was the colour. Although The Witcher 2 was great to play and hhas gorgeous graphics, my one gripe was the glowing colours it had. I believe the term is colour- correction and I thought it was pretty average. Anyway, now I can see in the enhanced edition the colours look much more natural, can't wait to download the new patch.
You're totally missing the point
Don't read ign's wicther 2 review.. they will remind you again.. "If you've got access to a high-end PC, it's fairly self-evident that's the version you should plump for, but Xbox 360 owners needn't feel short-changed by this very competent port." lol CD Projekt is awsome for doing the best they can both platforms.
I've played The Witcher 2 on my old PC (I reckon it's a medium spec by today's or even last year's standard) and it ran smoothly. Of course I can't accessed the highest level of graphical options (nowhere near the coveted Ubersampling) but the game is still beautiful to play with barely any blurred textures. CDP has done a great job with this engine.
In most instances, the 360 version looks better than the older PC version based on this vid. But it really isn't a deal breaker either way.
One word comes to mind "delusional"
That was seriously funny made my day.
Yeah, I was suprised myself! Great job CDB, instant buy....
How about that favor dropping yourself off a cliff? No one likes you. You can't even spell 'Witcher 2' right.
Have to say, that I bow before CD Projekt RED, this is incredible achievement and I am gonna buy X360 version, despite that I am already having a Wthcer 2 on PC. I want play it on big screen, but my main reason is to support CD Projekt RED, as much as I can!
So what happens when the PC gets the Enhanced version?
Some free DLC , not sure if it has been deployed yet , Steam just sort of sits their in the background leeching bandwidth as and when its needs for updating stealth like :D
you can pre-download it right now. I believe it's more than 10gb big.
I'm very interested in this particular comparison. I was very excited when The Witcher 2 was announced to be coming to Xbox 360. (my native platform) But since then I have bought a Gaming-PC, although I haven't taken a very strong liking to it - I literally only play games with gamepad support. I bought Witcher 2 on PC, and TBH I haven't played all that much of it. I'm curious as to know whether the PC-version has all the gamepad advances that the Enhanced Edition on Xbox 360 does. If it does, I'll gladly play it on PC for the graphicall advantages. But my Xbox, and smoothness, preferences are so strong I'm considering whether I should play it on console.
The PC will get everything the Enhanced Edition does in a free patch, including gamepad improvements. So to answer your question, yes.
They did a great job on the Xbox360 port. Give them a round of applause.
I'm just happy that more people are now exposed to what an awesome developer CD Projekt RED is.....even though I am mostly a PC exclusive gamer, it's awesome 360 players get to experience this. I was skeptical at first when I heard it was being ported to the console but, wow, they did an OUTSTANDING job!
What is clear is the 360 version is an excellent port from PC. Is it just as good graphically? No, but it does look fantastic. Good job CD Projekt
the cutscenes look similar, gameplay, not even close, the 360 version is m issing 90% of the textures, is exhibiting massive jaggies and this vid is only comparing the pc at 720p, at 1080p it even further demolishes it so, the pc version is far and away better looking, but, for a 7 year old console, it looks as good as any other game that people think looks good on console, they did a good job with what they had, basically, 2004 pc parts.
Making the video you want to look worse a little *dimmer* is an old trick. Remember all the Dx9 vs. Dx10 comparison shots that had Dx9 stuff look darker and moodier? Same thing.
Genius, the PC version doesn't have the new, brighter lighting. Use your brain.
My PC can't even touch this game (or the first one) so I'll be playing the 360 version. Some bad tearing in spots it seems but that'll have to do, I guess.
The Witcher 2 is one of the best RPGs I've played and I'm glad to see it coming for the xbox 360 so more people can experience it. Deep story filled with comprehensive gameplay to match. It is so disappointing that a game like Mass Effect which defines itself as an "Action RPG" will pretty much every RPG element stripped out and yet still sell more than Witcher 2.
Is witcher 2 better then skyrim. I've played quite abit of skyrim, but it's getting boring now.
Depends. Story wise yes, Witcher 2 has deeper well told story. But they are two different types of games, i would say try it out if you want something frash and new
What is up with all the Disagrees for people giving the developers thumbs up on a great X360 Port? Oh, I get it, there is no PS3 port. Mystery solved!
The one thing the 360 version will have over the PC version is the Menu system will be better on console as the PCs version wasn't all that great. Its a pity they didn't re-work The Witcher 1 for the console as that was great as well but I guess in fairness The Witcher 2 is leaps and bounds technically and the story telling is much better than 1 in my opinion.
Been playing this on my PC recently and it's great! Looking at the video, CD Projekt did a damn fine job and if you can't play it on a PC, you still got a damn fine version to play on the 360.
