    It's cool they didn't have to censor anything - that's what I liked about the Witcher series in general. Played both to death on my PC, so I doubt I'll pick this up for another platform - but I hope it gets the attention it deserves still.

    I hope their consideration for their fans earns them a ton of sales.... The constant updates and avoidance of DRM. I've never seen another company do so much, and those who do should be handsomely rewarded!!

    It's really a shining point in these days of costly and junky DLCs.

    I want these guys with their no DRM, free DLC model to succeed so much. I've even considered buying the PC version of Witcher 2, even though there's no way I could play it given my crappy laptop specs.
    I'm He Who Lurks, and I'm AWESOME!

    Also they're giving everyone who bought the PC version an extra copy of the game from GOG. Because why not, I guess.

    Oh cool, I can give a copy to my sister!

    Edit: Oh, it's a backup copy, never mind.

    Seriously, GOG has gone beyond bending over backwards for their customers. What MORE can they be asked to do?

    I immediately regret this suggestion.

    "There are big hardware differences between high-end PCs and the 360, but we put a lot of effort to make the game feel smooth and polished. I think we did it."

    There's a graphics comparison video somewhere out there. I couldn't tell much of a difference.

    Well, a lot of the issues are alleviated by there being a singular platform, allowing them to optimize like hell. It takes a whole hell of a lot of effort, but a dedicated developer can get some sweet graphics out of these boxes.

    Possible stupid question: By "singular platform," are you referring to it being just an Xbox 360 release, rather than a Xbox 360/PS3 release?

    Pretty sure that's what you mean. If so, I wasn't aware that cross-platform releases led to such difficulties, but I know sooo very, very little about this stuff.

    I mean, since everyone has pretty much the same Xbox 360, CDP can optimize for the specific hardware, something you really can't do when you're worrying about eleventy billion different PC configurations.
