The Witcher 2: Enhanced Interview With Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz
How difficult is it to move a high-end PC game to a console? We ask senior quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz about the process.
silversix_ The 360 is crap ?? That is why it gets the best game ever made for the PC, and that is why triple A titles are still being developed for it - Halo 4. Commentors like you are the reason why I stopped visiting the system wars board.
@Legend002 ...................It's because people want to play this game on the PS3... which is the console the ones "begging" for a PS3 version presumably own. The PS3 is a different game playing apparatus than the ones in which The Witcher 2 is currently available for (or WILL BE available for on April 17th, in the case of the XBox360 version). If one inserts the PC or XBox360 version of a game into their PS3, the disc will not be read and the game is, thus, unplayable. That is why I, too, as someone who owns only a PS3 for the purposes of watching blu rays and playing video games, shall also throw my name into the ring of "beggars" who wish for a PS3 version of the Witcher 2.
I have a 360 and a PS3, so I wouldn't have minded what console port they made. As it is, I'm really looking forward to play this when it is released on 360 :)
They probably could have made a PS3 version if so many people didn't steal their games. The witcher sold 1.5 or so, but about 2-4 had the game. This great company was deprived of funding because of thieves. The Witcher 2 sold around 1.2 and about 3-4 have the game. They couldn't afford to do a PS3 version, but all next gen systems will get the Witcher 3. They said as much in an interview, but quickly backtracked. Hopefully the new systems will allow them to recoup theft losses by releasing 1 and 2 as downloadable. I've pre-ordered this and can't wait. PC gamers, of which I have been, should support companies like this. They work their butts off for the fans and get gaffled in return. Just plain wrong....
@thatguy_b Nope, the PC owners of the game are gonna get the same content that the 360 it's going to have via free patch.
@illmatic87 So I gave u thumb down coz its one of the simpliest words in Polish... and I'm Polish :D Can read that .. HAH! :D (And my english is waaaay better than his...)
@ silversix_ If I were him, instead of saying the X360 has its limitations, I would have said, "The PC is simply the better choice for gamers. It has everything you need that a console cannot provide. The PC is like a good woman - treat her gently, and she rewards you. Treat her bad, and she blows up in your face."
I would really like to see a PS3 version of this and hope you guys can make it, maybe you could practice on part one of "The Witcher" please.
Oh, snap. Here goes my dream of playing this on PS3. Before they make up their minds and learn how to port it ps4 will be on horizon. Anyway, good job. Great game. Pozdrawiam ziomkow z Polski. ;)
If i was him, instead of saying "xbox360 has its limitations" i would've said "its an outdated piece of sh*t that can't properly run our game even in sub 720p".
