oh neat i know for a long time when the pc version was still in development there was a ton of talk about porting the original, and then when that was dismissed it seemed like the devs were leaning toward bringing 2 out on 360 instead.  of course i thought when all the usual channels went dead and the pc released without a whisper that it pretty much indicated that it wasnt going to happen...  so color me pretty excited!

looks like there may be some problems with publishers
CVG

Quote
Namco Bandai is taking legal action against The Witcher 2 developer CD Projekt RED, over its decision to switch publishers for the Xbox 360 version of the game to THQ, according to a translated report.

According to a translated report from Polish site CDAction, Namco Bandai claims that CD Projekt RED broke an existing distribution agreement by choosing THQ for publishing duties of Witcher 2 on Xbox 360.

Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt RED said: "As with most cases, we first tried to end the dispute peacefully. Attempts failed and because of this, we hoped that our partner would send the case to the court.

"The agreement that we signed last year, concerned only the distribution of The Witcher 2 for the PC. The records were carefully clarified to avoid any ambiguity.

"Namco Bandai have options when choosing the priority of our distributor's version of the Xbox 360. It could use, but not taken advantage of certain preferences. In this situation, we chose the offer that THQ made us."

Discussing withheld retail payments for sales of Witcher 2 on PC, Kicinski said it won't affect the developer.

"Our financial situation is very good at the moment and the lack of a few million does not have any impact on current activities," he said. "Withholding of payments means only that after some time, our partner will have to give us the money.

"I hope that the whole thing will end with a pre-litigation settlement. If it doesn't, I am sure that we will win the case and then the loser will pay for our lawyers."

Good!  I hope that means it won't be released anywhere near Skyrim - as you say, wtf were they thinking?  I also hope that means that they will take their time and search out every possible glitch in the game; I'm quite tired of being addicted to buggy games.  That said, I will be avidly awaiting Witcher 2 as well as Skyrim, whenever they arrive.

pushed back to 2012

Quote
There are two reasons for the delay. One is to give the team "more time expanding and polishing certain elements of the gameplay". The other, and the developers acknowledge this, is the legal battle over the game's distribution rights.

I really want to play this,but i am kind of glad that it has been pushed back because November has enough games to last me right into the new year

extra content for the 360 version and likely will appear on 2 discs
(PC players will also get the updated stuff)

Quote
The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 will get extra story content as well as the 2.0 enhancements, Dark Mode, Arena, new tutorial and new four minute opening cinematic, CD Projekt Red has revealed.

And, crucially, it will all be offered for free on PC, either "around the same time" or very shortly after. "If there's going to be some differences they're not going to be like months," story designer and writer Jan Bartkowicz told Eurogamer in an interview following his Witcher 2 Expo presentation. "They're going to be more into days. It's what I think is going to happen."

Quote
CD Projekt Red referred to the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 as an adaptation rather than a port; there's significant effort being poured in to ensure that the company's belated console debut is a success.

"Right now we're focused on delivering the game for Xbox, and we want to do it internally. That's why we call it an adaptation," Bartkowicz told the Eurogamer Expo 2011 audience. "We want to have a game that's going to have the Xbox 360-exclusive title quality.

"Almost everybody in our development right now is focused on delivering this game to Xbox 360. And we're a small studio; right now we're around 80 people in the development part. It's the first console title ever for us and we wouldn't want to grab too many things at the same time and deliver a poor quality product at the end of the day."

He added, in our interview: "I believe it's going to be like no other game on Xbox [360]. And, of course, there's a lot of marketing stuff you can say, and a lot stuff that marketing guys want people to say is probably bullshit. But I can say with my hands on my heart that there's no such non-linear and mature, complex story on Xbox."


in the link-lots more details on the additional extras and 360 version and even talk at the end that they would like it to come to PS3,but unsure it would happen as they are now concentrating on the 360 version and he even admits that they do not know the month which the 360 version will be out

update list

Version 2.0 Corrections/Amendments
Corrections and improvements to combat:

1. Numerous improvements have been made in the targeting system.
2. Parrying is now unlimited (even when Vigor is completely depleted), though parries no longer cancel all damage
(maximum 50% reduction once the relevant ability has been acquired).
3. Responsiveness of game controls has been improved. This includes but is not limited to casting Signs, parrying,
and attacking immediately after evading an opponent‟s assault.
4. Geralt‟s attacks are no longer interrupted by attacking opponents. Attacks are now contiguous and foes cannot
interrupt Geralt‟s attacks by landing a blow.
5. Assorted fixes now prevent opponents from incessantly attacking Geralt after he has been knocked down. Geralt
can no longer be knocked down repeatedly in quick succession. Also, he rises quickly while evading subsequent
attacks.
6. Geralt no longer attacks opponents located behind other opponents positioned nearer to him.
7. The target locking system has been improved. Preference is now given to previously highlighted targets.
8. Target selection has been improved. Priority is now given to foes affected by a critical effect facilitating the
completion of a finishing move.
9. The additional two steps Geralt took after mounting an attack with the W, S, A or D key depressed have been
eliminated.
10. Attacks can now be continued even when a key controlling Geralt‟s movement (e.g. W, S, A, D) is depressed.
11. Attacks can now be continued if the attack key is depressed immediately after the final strike of an attack animation
sequence.
12. Geralt can now pivot 180 degrees immediately after completing an attack.
13. Assorted problems with key responsiveness have been resolved. Keys no longer need to be depressed twice or
more to trigger a given action.
14. A distance attack problem has been resolved. Geralt now mounts distance attacks (lunge with sword in hand in the
Fast style) when opponents were located at a suitable distance from him.

Other corrections and amendments:

15. Casting several bombs no longer blocks further inputs.
16. An option has been added to the configuration tool enabling aspect ratio to be set independently of resolution.
17. The amount of disk space required for game patching has been reduced.
18. The loading of selected Witcher 1 game saves no longer causes the game to crash.
19. A greater number of monsters now appear in the cave leading to Loc Muinne.
20. Improvements have been made in the manner in which monsters are spawned in the mist in Chapter 2.
21. The visual effect accompanying Adrenaline use no longer disappears prematurely.

26. Physics on cast daggers have been improved.
27. The site for aiming daggers is now more visible.
28. Geralt‟s animation when he dies while casting the Axii Sign has been corrected.
29. An exploit in the fight against Letho has been eliminated. Previously, this foe could be killed by casting bombs in
quick succession.30. An exploit related to the Insane‟ difficulty setting has been eliminated. Previously, game saves could be loaded with
difficulty set to this level, which was contrary to design intentions.
31. Camera positioning/operation has been corrected during the boss fight against the kayran.
32. Camera control via gamepads has been improved.
33. Assorted adjustments have been made in mutagen statistics.
34. The Junk‟ filter in the Inventory has been adjusted to provide for correct item filtering.

Okay Microsoft are really pissing me off now

CVG

Quote
The Witcher 2 development director Adam Badowski has said all downloadable updates released for the game will be free on PC, but will likely come at a fee for Xbox players.

Why the unfair treatment? He blames Microsoft policies. "All DLC for the PC version is and will remain FREE," Badowski told Rock Paper Shotgun.

"That's not likely to be the story for the Xbox version, because of certain Microsoft policies that need to be followed. But on PC, once you buy our game, you don't need to worry about any additional costs - we will provide all updates, including those featuring new content, for free," he added.

So are the PC version still going to get all the new features as the console version for free at the time of the console versions release?

You Lamer!  Play the damn game.   It is good.   If it was coming on the PS3 I would buy it again and play it on the big screen, but looks like thats not happening.

I am going to give it another run through soon I hope now that it has all these patches.   But, well..  Skyrim, SWTOR, MW3 kept me busy.  kingom of amuler and twisted metal are coming, so who knows, maybe this summer or something..

pffft, I don't know when I am going to get play it again.

agreed.  just play it as is ceekay.  I just finished it up on one of the two distinct paths and loved every minute of it.  I still have the second path to follow through, not to mention the various small but significant choices you can make along the way.  and from what most fans are expecting, they will have an affect on the third game the same way that choices in the witcher 1 changed plot points in two.

in retrospect there are a few other games I should focus on before playing it anyways (like that Mass Effect 1 & 2 playthrough I want to do before ME3 plus Kingdoms of Amalur) so I can comfortably wait until said patch biggrin

some more on the changes:

Quote
The Xbox 360 version, which I saw at a preview event in San Francisco, will bundle all of that previously released content when it launches this year -- along with new material.Initially, you can access four hours of new playable content and 30 minutes of new cutscenes and video. These new missions take you to new locations, and introduce extra characters and dialogue. But that's not the end of it, as CD Projekt Red plans not to "fire and forget."

I played a bit of the new on-disc content -- a mission called "For Temeria!" in which I and a man named Roche sought to get to the bottom of a plot of a would-be assassin looking to kill the Temerian king. This conveyed how the game has been streamlined for the Xbox 360. While it's possible to play the game on PC with an Xbox 360 controller, the experience is changed for the better on Xbox by a cleaner, more navigable inventory system, a new targeting system and an adrenaline meter that allows players to stylishly insta-kill multiple enemies at the tap of a button.

Is this a "hard" rpg like "Dark Souls"?  Or will it be casual gamer friendly?

Granted I played on a low difficulty given the warnings people sent, but it wasn't THAT hard. Mostly a few hours in it was hard for a few places in the woods/caves, but then evened out.

Typically I'd never buck up the extra $ for a limited or special edition, but the extras in the dark editon actually look decent and worth while.

I played it on normal or default at release and do not recall it being hard.  Well, harder then diablo or god of war maybe.

You have to block, play smart and use your abilities..   But, as you progress and put points in swords, it just kept getting easier.

I tried demon souls for about a hour and quit and never went back, heh.   Not really due to difficulty, but because I had to keep doing the same thing each time I died.  It restarted me at the beginning of the dungeon/ruins.   The witcher1 and 2  do not do that.
