This is definitely a great game and the fact it's free makes it even greater. Too bad I'm playing TERA Online atm, I would be all over this. Soo many good games coming out this summer. Great time to be a gamer :}
@csftar: Point duely noted. I mentioned that because to me it seemed like a typical "platform advertising" (for lack of a better word) where you use one product's success or failure to promote your affiliated one. But that was my biased opinion. In any case you are absolutely correct.
While I own the Witcher 2 & Witcher games on PC and absolutely love them, I can' help but notice that this article sounds more like an advertisement for the game, than an informative summary. Is it just me or other people see it this way? :\
@blaket81: I disagree with you concerning the comparison of phones to hand-helds. Though they are 2 completely different devices, the utility is basically the same (when it comes to media entertainment), with the exception that mobile smart phones possess a lot more functionality outside of media entertainment. I think it's safe to say that the average consumer will subconsciously make the comparison between the two devices. As we've seen in the last couple of years, mobile smart phones possess the same gaming functionality as any other hand held gaming device, and the multimedia community have also classified them as gaming devices (to validate my point, scroll up your screen; Gamespot has an iPhone tab on their website: That sums it up don't you think?). It boils down to choice no doubt. Would you buy a hand held gaming device if you already have, say and iPhone or an Android device? That would probably depend on the consumer's preferences. But my point is there's definitely clear grounds to compare both platforms, as they are both considered as gaming platforms.
They are in for some slim pickings when facing off against smart phones. It's more compact, chances are you already have a device (a smart phone) which push almost comparable graphics to the vita, and the average game costs a fraction of the price. Plus a lot of game developers are bringing console games to smart phones. It looks grim for he vita...
