The Witcher 2 Fighting Its Way to the Xbox 360 By Year's End

Speaking via live broadcast from the CDP Summer Days event, CD Projekt has confirmed the appearance of The Witcher 2 on the Xbox 360 this year, with "no quality compromise" made for Geralt's first journey to console land.

We knew it was coming. The ESRB told us it was coming. Now the developers confirm that The Witcher 2 is indeed being ported to the Xbox 360, with "improvements" made to make the gaming PC-eating title run respectably on the console.

During the webcast CD Projekt representatives answered the question of console quality versus PC by repeating the mantra "It's not the size of the polygons but how you use them." One of the presenters further explained that even on its lowest settings, players still enjoy The Witcher 2 for the PC, and that it was all about the experience.

"It looks absolutely amazing and stunning on console," they assured the assembled viewers, before showing an animated trailer for the game.

Hopefully we'll get a better idea of how the console version looks and plays next week at E3 2011.
