The Witcher 2 comes to Xbox:

PC Gamers: Ah, isn't that great, they can now enjoy a good game and CD Project can make more money. Good for them. Even includes new content. It'll expose a whole new crowd to the series.

Console gamers: Probably be a lame game trying to be to adult. Not simple enough to follow.

Dark Souls come to PC:

PC Gamers: Alright, we get a chance to enjoy this awesome game! 60FPS! 1080p! Proper internet play and some new content, wonderful. Hopefully it'll be a good port so we can support the company and see more from them in the future.

Console gamers: Eh? From Software betrays us, why do stupid PC Gamers get it? They'll just whine and moan and they can't appreciate the game for what it is, they'll mod and hack it and everyone will be a cheater and it'll ruin the series. They get new content? From Software betrayed us again! Where is our new content? We should get it first, and FOR FREE! PC Gamers are whiners who cried to get their way. From Software is wasting their time and money on PC, they should be developing the next Souls game / Kings Quest instead. PC Gamers will just pirate it anyways.



See the attitude difference?

Haha. Do you remember what happened when Diablo 3 was supposed to be coming to consoles too? Do you remember how PC gamers raged?

Diablo 3 is meant to played as a point and click rpg, not a hack and slash that consolites would consider it.

Kind of like all the consolites considering Witcher 2 as hack and slash.

Plus consoles are known for ruining game series.

Slight fix.
It all depends though; CD Projekt had told PC gamers in advance that the game would be initially on PC and then to console, yea? The rumour of Diablo 3 being multi-plat was out of the blue (With console gamers feasting on the rumour and gloating how this will be the inevitable death of PC's only exclusive publisher :L)

The Kotaku community is stupid. Some of the comments there make me wonder why they even have a commenting section.

I must say, I didn't expect it to look as good as it does on Xbox. The PC version still looks much better though.

Kotaku seems to be pro consoles, hence why the "graphics comparison" on Witcher 2 they had the PC version at 720p and medium, why not 1080p or higher and on ultra (or whatever the max settings are) and with that stupid tint? They just want people to think the 360 version is graphically far superior when it isn't and never will be.

I could care less if D3 came to consoles. Why people rage so much about "console this" and "pc that" is beyond me. I have probably been gaming longer than most on this site, my gaming goes all the way back to ColecoVision.
Most gamers can't afford to drop $2k+ on a pc, it's much easier to buy a $300-400 console that still looks pretty good in the end. There are also alot of people that prefer a gamepad over mouse/kb, and there are still some big ticket games that are on both pc/console that don't support gamepad (officially at least) on the pc (Bioshock 2, ME3 to name two)
Who really cares that witcher 2 was ported over, and that the comparison review was flawed. Yes I would have liked to see the console vs the pc with everything maxed and the uber turned on, but oh well. As a gamer I'm happy to see a good company make a great game available to as many people as possible. CDPR gave all the additional features of the console version to pc owners for free, and gave them a backup digital copy. That's unheard of in this day and age.
Anyhoo, that's my rant
