Destructoid: How enhanced is the Xbox 360 edition of The Witcher 2?

Destructoid writes: It's been almost a year now since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released on PC. Built upon an engine with multiplatform support in mind, a console version was inevitable. Outsourcing a port for the first The Witcher didn't work out very well, so this time CD Projekt RED decided to take full control of developing the Xbox 360 version of their second Witcher baby mutant. In the meantime, various updates to the PC version have added cross-chapter inventory storage, an arena mode, and an extra "Dark" difficulty setting.

All of the existing changes, as well as new changes, new content, and graphical tweaks, are part of the package in The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 and as a whopping 11 GB update for PC owners of The Witcher 2. Can such a PC favorite fare well on the controller-focused and aging console hardware, and what is so enhanced about this new version?

Good article, i've been looking for specifics on what is different in the enhanced edition as I am waiting till I download to start playing it.

Thank god his meditation animation is gone. I was doing arena literally not bothering to level up simply because of that.

I cant wait to play this. I had it on my PC but i'm not used to using a mouse. My wrist felt like it was gonna smash after ten minutes.

If only there were some way to use controllers on your PC... Oh wait there is. What? You can even use either a Dual Shock 3 or a 360 controller? No foolsies?

Next thing you'll tell me is that all this new content is available for free on the PC and can currently be pre-downloaded off the witcher 2 website in perpetration for the april 17th release... What it is?!

On a serious note I do support you going out and buying a 360 version since i like CDPK and they deserve some money, but doing it because you wanted to play with a controller is foolish.

I sold my PC a few weeks ago, that's why i'm getting the 360 version. When i said above that i played the game, i was talking about Assassins of Kings, not this game.
Also, i thought by saying that i wasnt used to a mouse would make it obvious that i dont know a lot about PC's, so no, i didnt know about the ability to use the controllers.

Well I feel bad for being so snarky then. Hope you enjoy the game.

And yea the 360 controller is pretty much just plug and play. You can also hook up the PS3s but it requires a special driver but works just as well and it's even possible to play wireless if you have a Bluetooth dongle.

DAMN I WANT THIS SO BAD!!! Im just scared I get bored with it, like I did with Dragon Age, seeing im more a Sci-fi RPG gamer as to a Fantasy RPG gamer.
