Curious, I wonder if you can buy Witcher 2 unedited by changing your country of origin? The timing of this change so shortly after that announcement is a bit to close to be coincidental...
I was thinking the same thing. And it is not just the censored version of Witcher 2 in AU its the massive price hike because B&M stores in AU are assholes.

I would not be surprised if Steam sees a ton of dumped preorders and the like because of this. Its not only AU but the $1 == 1Euro (sorry can't make that symbol) BS that steam does with pricing.

I understand Microsoft's thinking. You can't sign into your WoW account but once. I believe this is for security purposes, but obviously in this case it can be a huge pain. So the wife gets a second account for watching movies and such. If she signs in to watch Netflix with her account he can still get achievements, etc. But I guess that "free" part kinda of wipes that out too, since the second account would be on the PC.

So then, MS should make free accounts for watching Netflix on your Xbox if you already have an existing account. But they want you to buy a gold subscription, so that's probably not going to happen.

I wonder what a good solution would be?
Simple solution. Do what Steam does. Let you log in to a computer and a console at the same time.

It makes sense to not let two computers log in or two consoles log in at the same time. But no damned reason you could not let a computer and a console log in with the same account at the same time.

Steam just says "2011" for the release date. Has anything more specific been given?
Steam seams to take a long time to update their pages with the exact release date even if the information is out there.

Steam did not say Witcher 2 would be out on the 17th till only a week or so ago tho the release date has been known since like Jan.

Ill prolly get this one on Steam being that the physical version has like nothing special in it, unlike Witcher 2.

And because im on a Witcher 2 kick... looks like DX3 will at least properly support 16:10 on launch.

Another cash-in expansion pack sequel. Meh.

Spoken like someone who has never played them. AC2 and Brotherhood have ridiculous amounts of content and are by no means cash-in.
I have played both. And brotherhood really does feel like it was content cut from AC2 or should have been an expansion because of how short it is compared to AC2.

Ill believe it when I see it.

Errr why? They've released all of the AC games on the PC except for the stupid mobile versions.
I was referring to it coming out in November with PS3 and 360.

What baffled me about Prince of Persia was why the Prince, who was presumably also a Persian, had a yorkshire accent? All the way through the film I kept expecting him to turn to that princess and say "'ey up, chuck, fancy a brew?" or "eeey by gum I'm dyin' for a cuppa tea".

Made the film so much better than it would otherwise have been.
Its called "whitewashing". Air Bender and now Akira are suffering from it.

It's a shame; from what I hear the PS3 population is still going strong even though the PC population is dying. This would've done away with the population issues.
Yeah because its a rather crappy MMO by PC standards.

As for all servers, Sony supposedly gave a reason why last-minute they decided to not let PCs play w/ PS3s but I doubt it was a good one.
The reason I heard was that PC and PS3 use completely different authentication systems. PS3 using PSN (this is why on PS3 you don't have to put in a l/p to start play) and PC uses... something different (I forget what).

That is also the reason the PS3 version never got a lifetime option for subscription. You could not charge what they were asking for a lifetime subscription because of PSN payment limitations. Whatever the PC was using could.

The fact that PC and PS3 were on different servers was the main reason I never got into this. I have a few friends that were interested but only gamed on PS3.

The game is amazingly simple.

A friend of mine who has never really played a MMO before hit the level cap inside a week IIRC.

I got 1/2 way there in one night on the beta. But I do not know if EXP was accelerated or not.

As for everyone on the same servers. FFXI has done this since day one. Yes there are more than one server but anyone from any region can play on any server. Them playing on PC, PS2/3, 360 does not matter either.

I think the reason that this is free on everything (specifically 360) is because the update will come through Steam not XBL.

I personally hate being force the play Geralt. It certainly helps with the boredom and drool voice work, not to be stuck with him as your PC.
"Boredom and drool". Going by your lack of English skills it seams that you missed the entire point of his monotone voice. It fits the kind of person he is and his outlook on the world.

Sorry he isn't some no necked, spiked shoulder pad wearing, "FUCK YEA! KILL THEM ALL!", thug that is every male protagonist/hero in games today.

By the way is this game out already? Got some friends playing it right now, and no they are not pirates, they are game devs, so I doubt they would pirate the game.
I call shenanigans.
