RipTen: "It was only a matter of time.
The Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has just been officially announced in an Optimus stock market filing. Optimus is the parent company of CD Projekt."
Hopefully PS3 gets The Witcher too. I've heard nothing but great things about it.
Skyrim Deus Ex No Witcher 2 on the 360? Although it's been rumored for awhile now..it's great to hear it is true.. Life is good Evil
I have a 360 so this would have been awesome news BUT I just shelled some cash over for a kickass gaming laptop...think I'll buy the PC version instead. Anyway this is great news for 360 owners, from what I've read and seen this game it's going to be a helluva gem.
God heard my prayers :) Witcher 2 + Skyrim + Dark Souls = one happy rpg fan. But of course wont get them all at the same time, too much goodness for one man to handle.
@ps3destroyer, i wouldnt mind if 1 bubble comments were hidden by default again
@ I_find_it_funny: Click your user icon in the upper right of the page and click "settings" in the left column. On the settings page, the bottom option gives you the option to hide people with 1 bubble. :) Hopefully it actually works!
HELLLLL YESSSSS!!!!!!!! Witcher 2 Dark Souls Skyrim Deus Ex Mass Effect 3 360 is killing it with all the great rpgs. This and demons souls 2 both on my 360, HELL HATH FROZE OVER!!!!!
the fact that this was officially announced today and not on MS's press conference on monday makes me think that it's coming to PS3 as well also quality will suffer, 360 hardware can't handle the graphics shown on high ends PCs with this game
"also quality will suffer, 360 hardware can't handle the graphics shown on PC" Nor can the PS3. The irony is the only possible console that can handle the visuals without too much compromises would be the Wii 2 if those rumored specifications turn out to be correct
If it was coming to PS3 as well, they would have said so since it's their conference and not MS.... Also they already said the quality wouldn't suffer.
Yes wasting time on a game that is already out during a busy E3 scedual is the way to go :p 360 can't handle pc graphics? Seems to be doing better than other consoles. I'm half way through crysis 2
***If it was coming to PS3 as well, they would have said so since it's their conference and not MS....*** I'm hoping they're holding off to announce it during Sony's conference. Possible, just not very probable. One can hope, though. If it doesn't come to PS3, though, can always try it out on the 360.
The plan was *always* to bring Witcher 2 to consoles as stated by the devs. I'd think hiring PS3 programmers and the voiced intent to port it to PS3 means a PS3 version is coming at some point. A simultaneous release surprise? Who knows? But it would not surprise me if it came later since CDP are, like most devs, less adept with the black box.
Honestly who's surprised? Not meeeeeeeeeeee
Its a great game for sure. I hope it comes out for the ps3 as well (I just spent 70hrs with it on the pc with my PS3 controller ) XBox only members: be sure to pick this up!
They had to cancel the Witcher 1 for consoles due to financial reasons. I can only assume it's 360 only because of the more straightforward porting process.
. What happen to announcing it at E3...M$ can't be happy about this. Maybe it will come out on the PS3 as well. @Phear..Oh, K...thanx...anything else that might interest the console brethren???
It was announced at CDP Conference that's going on right now. Has nothing to do with MS. EDIT: Comes out at the end of the year. No word on PS3 version, quality wont suffer.
it's probably because it's coming to PS3 as well
If its coming to PS3 too, why announce just the 360 since it is their own conference and not Microsoft's?
Hell yes! Definitely gonna get this game.
this is awesome news for those on 360!
Later this year. They just showed it on ustream. it looks great on 360 not like pc but 360 owners will be happy.
It's nice to hear it is official but everyone knew this already.
Yeah cant wait to play it on my PS3
Well it's not been announced for the PS3 so...
WOW from the ammounts of disagrees looks like no one wants it to come to the PS3. I remember a while back that their was an article in which they stated that they wanted to bring the game to both the 360 and the PS3. So i am pretty sure like Mass Effect it will come to the PS3 sooner than later.
Excellent.CD Projekt made the right choice.PC version release first,consoles after.You hear that bioware?
Modern(since 03) BioWare has never released PC first, from KotOR to DA2.
Been playing it with a 360 controller and it's very well suited for it
the game is definitely suited for a controller, but keyboard and mouse works well also...but thats just preference on my part. Still its great X360 owners get a chance to play this amazing game...sucks PS3 owners don't though.
only think i got mad about was when playing with the controller you had to pause to get to inventory. accompanied by a long pause before the pause menu loaded. its weird cause I have a kickass pc and all of this stuff should be loaded into memory 2gb on the gpu and 4gb on the mobo.
Been saving up for a pc for this and BF3 and skyrim, should have enough to buy one by September. Just in time! :)
Even if it was on the ps3 i'd get the 360 version. Cross game chat is the deciding factor of course. Regardless, this is a win for Microsoft!
Gears3 Forza 4 Witcher 2 Halo CE HD Skyrim Dark Souls Awesome!
Why would you get dark souls for 360.
Because.. it's the same thing?
This is awesome...but not so much for my wallet.
I wish I had a good PC to run this game. It's not to often I get immersed into an RPG. Only two other games I went in depth were The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3. Not to mention, I don't even have an Microsoft Xbox 360. Just a PS3
"They say there will be no quality compromise," Now that ladies & gents would be truly remarkable! Between Skyrim, Mass Effect 3 & this my winter gaming portfolio is complete.
watch the 1st 360 trailers! the game looks sick. they are pushing the hell out of 360. very talented team! http://www.gametrailers.com...
You do know most of that trailer is CGI right?
[email protected] you're a bit overexcited there. Most of it is CG and the few seconds of gameplay shown is not enough to get a read on how it looks. Still I expect it to be very good looking.
@kobe is there gameplay in there? then you have no point. @despair the gameplay graphics didn't suck and its all thats out and it does look good.
@ slavish3 Never played the first Witcher but I agree with you it does indeed look very promising.
I still like the witcher 2 on the pc but this is great for 360 owners.
Didn't think this game was coming to consoles PS3 version might be coming soon.
Haters gonna definitely hate. I already have the game for PC, but this is an excellent addiction to the 360 library.
This game will be graphically raped on the 360. Anyone who owns it on the PC will understand.
Great news !!! i was going to buy this weekend on my pc which is not that powerful.... it would have handled the game but not that well... will buy on 360 or ps3 the one that comes sooner!! if simultaneous i will get on the ps3 since it's gonna be 1 disc.. :)
Nice! I really wanted to play this. 2011 is the year for great RPG games!
Great news,Xbox 360 got a great game.
Yeah this is going to be f***ing sweeeeet. Made my friday!
