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.

Same for me, I tried to enjoy this game, but the thing that really kept me from liking it was the combat, I just couldnt stand having to mouse fuck everythng to get the combat to work. I would rather they made icons to click or have some type of auto attacks that you could alter.
Please go back to your console games.

-- Vote-kicking feature added.
-- Added a reserved slot system for server admins.

Things that should have existed on day one. These are quite basic and standard features for games in the last 10 years.

I also love the lack of DX11 and a fix so we can FINALLY use our My Crysis logins.

The first one rocked.

Really looking forward to this and I think it will be a nice sequel, unlike too many other recent disappointments (e.g. Dragon Age 2, Mafia 2).
Yeah this is what I am hoping for too.

Are you sure about that? The version of the game that the ESRB rated was the edited version. The unedited version was never released in the U.S., as far as I know.
I believe the director's cut version sold everywhere now (including steam) is the full uncensored unedited one.
A patch was released to make the DC version uncensored in the US.

That's kind of surprising considering the PS3/Steam bundle, but there's a lot of "ifs" towards the end of the article. We'll see how it all shakes out. I'm just glad I was able to activate my Steam copy before PSN crapped out. Whew!

With the 360's install base being much larger in North America, it kinda goes without saying. The value proposition is much greater on the PS3, but a lot of multiplatform games with a strong multiplayer focus tend to gravitate toward the 360 because 360 owners are already paying for the privilege to play their games online.
This actually makes sense. To see more value of their $50 a year mandatory fee to play anything online they will buy games on that system to justify the cost.

I do that now with PC games. I drop almost $10k into a massive rig I get all my games on PC to justify spending that kind of money.

Agreed Acleacius. Look at what they did to the The Force Unleashed team and that game was fairly successful. LucasArts has a history of literally doing the opposite of what precedent would normally dictate.
Force Unleashed was fairly successful? I know Star Wars nuts that shit on that turd of a game.

PC requiring a "$4,000" computer aside.

Also by "scale well" means we are going to make the game really dumb for console users then do a half assed port to PC 6 months later.

Yeah these numbers simply don't mean shit because digital distro groups do not release numbers to the public (only to the developer/publisher of the game).

Wow another cool thing dropped from Portal 2 because of bad play testers.

Reminds me of the removal of dynamic pathing in L4D2 because it "confused the testers". Really?

Well I guess Portal 2 is another game that proves trailers can not be trusted to represent the game even in the smallest amount. I just think how kick ass the game would have been if it was really like the trailer in the article ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGQOxdKkgt0 ).

They should release all that cut content as free DLC. I miss those levels from the E3.
Can I get a HELL YES!

Yeah I heard it was BAD. Insane load times, bugs, all sorts of things.

But to me its hearsay. I didn't get Witcher till the CE version came out.
