[Kotaku] Comparing The Witcher 2 on PC and Xbox 360

The Witcher 2, one of the most visually impressive PC games going around, is getting an Xbox 360 port. If you were wondering how many corners needed to be cut to get the game running on a six year-old console, here's your answer.

There's a lot of fog, and the lighting effects have been all but turned off, but does that really matter? The game seems to be there, running, and The Witcher 2 was a pretty damn good game, even without the fancy visuals.

Well, there you can see it. The console version is pretty decent, but terribly ugly at times. Some of the comments on Kotaku are really weird though.

The Xbox one looks better surprisingly, thought PC would look way better I guess it all matters what TV your playing you Xbox on cause I mean the xbox runs on 1080p screens and it looks just as good as any PC.

That comment is so...out there.

I agree. I know there will be some people here who have spent far too much on a PC to admit it - but the Xbox version honestly looks just as good.

The main differences are colour grading. Looking side by side it looks like someone just went silly with oversaturation on the PC version.

Other than that there really is very little difference (visible on the youtube video - I am sure side by side on my PC and TV there would be).

However - you are getting a version that looks damned near the same that you can play on a lovely large TV screen from your couch.

First part in bold isn't true, and second part...you've been able to do that with PC's...for a long time already.

Ignorant comments there.

Looks like they did a pretty nice job porting this to 360.
Wish they would have thrown in Ultra high comparison vs 360.

That to.

They compare PC Medium to console.

Why not PC Ultra to console?

I mean cmon ~

If you're going to show the differences, show them at max. It only shows on scene on "high"

And there is a damn big difference between high and ultra in TW2, so I find it disappointing.

Exactly, they're comparing PC on Medium @ 720p to console @ sub 720p @ 29FPS.

It's seriously crap. COMPARE TO ULTRA!

Biased comparison.

I thought The Witcher 2 was released for XBox 360 at launch? Ehh...

PC version... so much better.

Witcher 2 looks much better on my PC at 1080p Ultra. Xbox 360 port is pretty good but graphics are better on PC.

Will the Xbox 360 version still be uncensored?
