Is there a market for games like this on the console, however?

O I know...I know its coming.

So they got WB to publish this after pissing of Atari? Lol.

This game is great. I look forward to replaying it on PC with the new content. 
 
I play it with a controller too because it works very well due to hotkeys not playing too big a role, and looks amazing on my TV.

I just finished the game yesterday on PC, amazing game, thoroughly enjoyed every single part of it, great story and an amazing world around it.

Looking forward to a second playthrough myself after all of this content is released.

Does it matter if I havent played the first one ? I would have but my PC can barely handle two open tabs.

@m2cks: Probably, I'm sure there are people that want a good RPG on the consoles. Didn't Skyrim and Dragon Age do fairly well on the consoles? And I'm sure there are some people that would be like "GAME OF THRONES WAS RAW, THIS LOOKS LIKE THAT!"

Witcher blah blah blah.

it come to console!

That guy in the beginning looks just like Eric Bana!
 
I'm looking forward to playing this on a console. I loved the first Witcher, but I couldn't play the second one on my PC because it ran at like 15 frames per second. I strictly adhere to the "30 fps or bust" rule.
 
Edit: Also, wow, "The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings: Enhanced Edition" is quite the mouthful.

Will they cram The Witcher 2 on one disc or more for 360?

Quite reminiscent of Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie.

It'll be one or more, yes.

Absolutely.

The group of dudes I regularly play with on Live is super excited for this game to come out on consoles after hearing me rave about it back when it was first released on PC. I just wish they would've released the first game on consoles as well.

Cant wait for this game

Amazon says 2 dvds.

And if you haven't played the first, they summarize it pretty well.

damn right it should.

I thought the same about Dragon Age: Origins, who would play that on a console.

Finally Bioware is putting out better ending dlc for the witcher 2.

Skyrim and Dragon Age did more than "fairly well" on consoles. For both titles, the 360 version outsold all others, with PS3 coming in second, and PC in last. For as much noise as PC gamers make online, consoles simply speak to a larger audience. With that audience comes a wide array of interests and tastes.

We're fine with showing people exploding into bloody goo and receiving fatal head wounds, but god forbid you hear the word "fucker".

I seriously hope that Giant Bomb crew isnt dissing this game. There are far worse games out there that deserve to be scorned.

Witcher games on the other hand offer real moral choiches and plots that are well developed. For a rpg fan these games are an essential purchase. Though witcher 2 has better controls than the original witcher.

I still think that it is a shame that Giant Bomb crew hasnt reviewed either of these games on the site.

@G24S: Actually it is three DVDs. Look at the end of the video where they show all three.

Edited by omghisam

@Deathmachine117: Kinda. It picks up right after the events of the epilogue of Witcher 1, so it assumes you've played it. Then again it also sort of assumes you've read the five or so Polish novels. It does not hold your hand introducing characters like Zoltan or Dandelion or concepts like Witchers or the scoia'tael. You have to pick up a lot through context.

Also, and maybe it's just me, but playing the Witcher games, I felt like some of the tone and/or humor of the dialogue was lost in many spots thanks to some shaky translations. It was a bigger issue for me in the first game, but still persisted to some degree in the sequel.

I just felt numerous times that there was a significant amount of context or emotion missing from some of the interactions because the translation didn't carry the same meaning as it might have had in the original language.

Yeah, that's what I've been waiting for as well. Keep planning on playing through it again but they keep announcing new improvements before I get started. It's worth playing through at least twice because your choices have a HUGE impact on future events and setting. Me and a friend played through it at the same time and had vastly different experiences.

I hope it does well on consoles, it really deserves to. It's a fantastic game and it's pretty damn rare for a developer to churn out a ton of free stuff like they have.

"The Witcher is still coming to console" Heh, that's funny. Because it's just coming to Xbox 360 so it's only one console. So, like, there shouldn't be a plural on the end (aka an S) so it's just it's coming to console. Hah. Heh. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA.

No, It's 2 DVDs. The third disk is an audio cd.

Traslation - We dont think console gamers are very smart, so we have made some nice videos to help keep your attention and explain things for you.

Thanks devs thanks oh and suck my f£$"£ D$£" while you at it

Ironically, the second game was written in English to avoid that problem - expanding in Polish on that felt easier than cutting down to English.

I wonder if will play through this version as well?

Well, I guess that explains why it wasn't so bad in W2. Still, though, the writing did feel stilted in parts.

Not that I didn't like the game, I loved it. I loved the first one despite all its issues, and pre-ordered W2 as soon as I was able.

Posted by VargasPrime

Also, didn't I read somewhere that people who own the game on PC are going to get all the additional content they are producing for consoles, free of charge?

Or was I just dreaming?

Posted by Vasta_Narada

Looked at the release info beside the video after it finished, just to make sure I had the right date in mind, only to be frightened by it being listed for May 17. And then the video popped up the true, April 17, date and I breathed a sigh of relief.

Must have Witcher 2 soon. Computer runs it like crap :(

What was bleeped out in that guy's interview?

That studio has hired some attractive guys

Posted by LiquidSword

I'm really excited for this. I've wanted to play the witcher 2 for so long but my pc isn't good enough. @Nardak: Also I don't think Giant Bomb is dissing the witcher. They are just making fun of the fact that there have been 4 or 5 trailers put out for the game coming to 360.

Posted by IAmNotBatman

Fuck, FUCK, FUUUUUUCCK. Gotta get rid of this backlog faaaaaast!!!!!

I think he might have said a spoiler since it didn't sound like he was going for a curse.
