Well then they just added x360 support for giggles?

Well I stand by my opinion though - a game can not support x360 controller without affecting how it plays on mouse/kb.

Yes, IGN is wrong. like most 'news' outlets they get things wrong from time to time, or don't update accordingly. The point is, is CDProjekt doesn't talk about those versions any more because they aren't slated for release until they say otherwise.

Just because a game has gamepad support it doesn't mean its doomed to have consolitis, especially with this coming from CDProjekt, I'm far from concerned.

As we can see from this gameplay footage, it appears we should have the same level of concern that we had with the first game, also a PC exclusive. little has changed in this regard.

note: voice acting isn't the real game voice acting, just done for the presentation.
