The Witcher 2 is coming to 360

It's been in the works for quite a while, but it's happening very soon. The game's a PC killer, and it's supposedly been tidied up and trimmed down in just the right ways to fit the experience on the 360. The trailer's pretty great:

I played the game, and its predecessor. While unlike many, I preferred the timing-oriented combat systems in the first game. Still, the graphical and storytelling experience is top notch material, though, and the storyline has divergent paths that make the game a lot more than a single short playthrough might suggest.

Had a dream last night that you'd been converted to an avid Witcher enthusiast, ML. Made perfect sense at the time.

It's one of the best RPGs I've ever played, so I'd say yes. It's only about 20 hours long (35-ish if you do both main story branches), though, so that might be more debatable if you'd be paying $60 for it.

Current Amazon price is actually $40 US for the Enhanced Edition.

I've considered it just for the fact that the developers seem really cool and want to please the fans.
Like they released the enhanced edition for the 360 then gave away the DLC for free to people who already owned the game beforehand. That strikes me as a team I'd like to support.
