I'm glad it's coming out on the X1 too! It shouldn't miss out on this game.

I thought the witcher being open world would make it one of the best games ever but after seeing these trailers I can unbiasedly say it will be THE greatest game made to date. The whole no more Geralt thing kinda makes me want to scream and cry in my pillow though.

Wait a minute. Didn't COWS say this would never come on Xbox One due to DRM? LMAO!!

COWS: CD Projekt Red doesn't like DRM and will only make this for PC and PS4. 

Cows get OWNED again.

Kind of ironic that a CDPR game is on the xbox one considering they are anti DRM and all lol.

Geralt looks like Commander Shephard in that screenshot! Now, if someone would be so nice as to make a crossover mod we could have some pretty interesting situations there.

I thought these guys would take a stand. Oh well, at least it's not an exclusive.

@toddx77 It's not their job repair the broken market of consoles . It's upto Sony and M$ . PC is open platform and they are PC developers who are fighting against DRM . They don't own Sony or M$ , it's THEIR job to make better policies for customers .

@clsbis Lucky for us, most PC games escalate according to your hardware. :)

I know, but it is still just kind of ironic that a company that hates DRM is letting their game be on a DRM filled console that's all lol.

@MAD_AI @stanknuggetz12 Pretty much.  Witcher 3 will almost certainly end up on GOG with no DRM at all, so why does anyone give a crap about this?

@thequickshooter @MooncalfReviews But it also this makes them look like hypocrites. I mean they have always said "witcher3 will be DRM free"  Well now it wont be..... Boy they have to feel horrible now.

@Cloud_imperium @Marsh87  You don't need a source for this.If it's a xbox exclusive and that it comes to PC there will be "strings attached".Remember Halo 2 Vista debacle....

@MAD_AI @Sandro7 @thequickshooter @MooncalfReviews It depends what kinda DRM ps4 have, "online pass" type thing? or will they go Xbone route? "online pass" thing really arent that bad compared to xbone's one. Or is it just like you can borrow disk, but even if you install it, you still need disk? Just have to wait what sony says about it.

Witcher 3 will be DRM free on PC, not consoles, even the PS4 will have DRM, not online DRM but some form Disc protection like the ECDSA on the PS3. Even the 360 has disc DRM.
