The Witcher - And now EVERYONE can play

The big news today, and still has me all giddy inside, has been revealed.

The Witcher is now coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Following the same format as they did for the Enhanced Edition, the developers are taking the original story, enhancing the gameplay, adding new controller mechanics (including Sixaxxis), new models, new creatures and new NPC's....aw hell, even a new enhanced engine and basically will follow the original quest lines and develop it specifically for the consoles.

Not much other info is available, but basically this is major. One of the best RPG's of the last year, with a storyline that allows for alternating decisions that are not felt until later,with no decision being good OR evil, this game will rock. I am already looking at following the alternate storylines in my head...lol.

As more news comes forth, I will post. There is no doubt that this will be a must buy for 2009. What a great way to make a game also. Use what you have, fix it, enhance it, upgrade it, make it a killer title for consoles.

Did I mention EXCITEMENT...

Count me in as well.

I loved the Witcher on the PC. But my buddy eventually took his copy back and has since sold it to one of those record exchange stores instead of me... the bastardo.

Looking forward to it on the Xbox 360 for sure.

Good news, although I won't play it on those platforms, I'm glad to see this sleeper game go bigtime. IMO the best SP RPG in a long time, really.
