I will probably play the first on PC and then play 2 on xbox. Would that be a good idea?

I'm getting it for 360 anyway. It does look like something you'd want a controller for now that i've looked at it more.

Sounds like a solid plan. The Witcher is from 07 so I should be able to run that on my compy. I doubt the more updated Witcher 2 will adequately run on my compy.

I dunno anything about the console versions unfortunately. The Witcher is a PC lead platform game, both of them. If you have a hefty PC the 2nd game can really take advantage of it. One of the few PC games that can actually tax a modern PC graphics card. If you don't have a beefy PC, then definitely get it on a console. No way a laptop is running this.

Exactly my theory. I may try to get a beefy computer in 5 to 10 years. lol

Is that like a psp2

Essentially, but it connects to the PS3 and PS4. Essentially you can play your console games on a portable system. Just a nice accessory to have with the PS4 coming out. Plus they sell used even on Craigslist for $160 with no games.

Rumour has it that it will be part of a PS4 bundle.

Yeah but if they do it'll be released later, and still probably more expensive than just $100 extra.

The rumour was it was would be included in a bundle as a second controller, but unlike the others no game. So it would be at the $500 bundle, same as those with a game and controller.

Yeah we'll see if that comes to fruition, would be pretty cool. PS Vita's got some awesome games on it so far.

The world is very low and gritty fantasy. Swearing, nudity, etc.

Seriously. Over the course of both games you have opportunities to score with a variety of ladies, and in the first game if you succeed you actually get a sort of “trading card” to commemorate the event, which usually features the lady in question nekkid. I don’t think the second game has the cards, although I believe there are still sex scenes (I own it but haven’t yet played it).

IIRC, for the PC versions I believe you can import a save from Witcher 1 into Witcher 2 and start out the second game with the same equipment you had at the end of the first. I think that I read somewhere, however, that the advantage from doing that is actually pretty small, and the carried-over equipment is pretty quickly outclassed by new stuff in the second game.

Never played the Witcher games, but seeing previews for #3 has me impressed. The 3rd game is going to be open world, and, visually, it looks amazing.

I heard the The Witcher 3 will be on the PS4, which is only a matter of time before 1 and 2 are released as well.

I'm not sure that means anything. There are no plans as of now to release 1 on 360.

You have to go to Dantooine as soon as possible in the 1st game if you want the lightsaber early.

How awesome would be a KOTOR 1&2 HD upgraded combo pack for the 360 be? I would buy that in a heartbeat.
