The Witcher for consoles. Very nice though I can't help but notice the abnormal role reversal. PC got the game first. How strange is that? Anyway, I hope PS3 and Xbox 360 players enjoy.

It wasn't that strange a few years back...til some " console exclu$ivity period$ " became more or less the norm.

Anyway, I hope to see more titles from CD Projekt. The Witcher has been a "refreshing" gaming experience for me and they have also shown that they care about their customers with the enhanced edition and without assorting the game with draconian DRM "protection" (GOG is another example).

Seems like eons ago though.

I wholeheartedly second this motion. I liked this line from the link that Achilles provided: "Before you PC die-hards throw up your hands in revoltů please remember that RED is still working on two unannounced games. " Yeah. I like the sound of that.

I know... I know... *sigh* Stupid devs... >.>

It seems like a good game, I just dont like playing male characters! >.< When I finally finish NWn2 and its expansions, I may have to just grin and bear it and try the game out... but looking at some guy's backside through out a game just isnt appealing. lol

Indeed, I tend to prefer female protagonists in games as well. There are a few games that are good enough that male-only canned protagonists can be easily overlooked (Planescape:Torment and Deus Ex for example), but I'm not convinced The Witcher is a member of that exclusive group from what I've seen and read so far. Hard to form an opinion without playing it though since the game seems to be highly polarizing. Some seem to think it's the best game ever, while others talk about it like it's the worst crap ever made. Especially when both sides include sources you normally consider credible.

Exactly, I played Planescape, and didnt mind playing a male character. But as you said, it was just that good. Witcher would have to be of such epic-calibre that I wont mind playing a male character. And like you, Im not convinced yet. Right now it seems like alot of hype.

I've still to play the first, my last PC was good enough to run it but unfortunately that's long gone & broken down so i'm currently stuck with a crappy PC. Might give this a try though considering it'll be for the PS3 etc.

According to a report on GameBanshee, The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf has been cancelled, another apparent victim of current poor economic conditions. CD Projekt RED is apparently focusing on developing The Witcher 2 for PC and consoles.

I couldn't find any official confirmation on the official Witcher website though so not sure what to make of this report right now.

EDIT: Yep, this is pretty much confirmed now that both CD Projekt RED and Widescreen Games are publicly pointing fingers at each other for the demise of Rise of the White Wolf. This game won't be coming out this year and probably will never be finished. That is most unfortunate for console gamers. See Gamasutra's article if you're interested.
