The Witcher Confirmed For PS3?

A few days ago, we learned that one of the most anticipated PC games in a long while, The Witcher, would be coming to next-gen consoles at an unspecified time. While this was good news, not only did we not have a release estimate, but we also didn't know which next-gen consoles might be targeted. In the past, PC games heading to Xbox hardware has been common, but does this mean the PS3 would be left out in the cold?

Not a chance, it seems. First, here's the visual evidence, which is right there in front of you: PS3 Programmer. Developer CD Projekt needs to fill this position, and logic dictates that you only need a PS3 programmer if you're making a game for the - wait for it - PlayStation 3. Hence, owners of Sony's next-gen console should also be able to partake of this epic fantasy-based title, which should be available some time later this year for the PC. How much longer will we have to wait for the PS3 installment? We have no idea, but at least it seems obvious that a PS3 version is indeed on the way.

We'd love to be able to write up a preview on this once it gets confirmed, because being big fans of games like this, we think The Witcher would make for an awesome addition to the PS3's library. As soon as CD Projekt makes the announcement, we'll be scrounging up as much info as humanly possible.

Dude! Holy crap, I was planning on getting this for my pc, but it seems I wont have to now! As soon as I can get that MGS4 bundle, I may be able to pick this up as well given that it comes out in the next month or so. Although, I highly doubt that it will be released anytime soon as they have only announced it. So I'll have to wait and see.

NEWS FLASH: a job posting doesn't confirm shit. For all we know they are hiring a PS3 programmer for a different game. That however is unlikely for such a small developer. This new programmer's first job will likely be to analyze whether or not a PS3 port is possible with in such and such a time frame and such and such a budget. It's quite likely that the answer to those question's is no and the game doesn't come out. This is a good sign but it is simply irresponsible to consider this as SOLID EVIDENCE of anything. There has been similar job postings like this before and we still haven't heard any announcements on Mass Effect or BioShock so just calm down until something more concrete pops up.

On a related note. Could someone give a brief summary of what this game is supposed to be about? i haven't heard anything about it.

The link in the story is to the game's official site; there's plenty of info there.

And I can promise you that no developer is going to hire a PS3 programmer for the express purpose of figuring out if a game can be ported or not. That's figured out well ahead of time, and if they need help, they'd hire a temporary consultant; not a full-time staffer. No, it's not "confirmed," which is why there's a "?" in the article title, but it's a good indication. CD Projekt HAS no other projects, as far as I know. At least, none that might show up on the PS3 and furthermore, it was just revealed that the game is coming to consoles...

Alright all good points. I admit i didn't click the link it was late at night. However I still stand by what I said. Even with a question mark, using the word confirmed for such a speculative story doesn't make sense. I didn't mention it in my first post but I DO BELIEVE that in all likelihood the game is PS3-bound. I just don't like the way you used confirmed. A better title in my opinion would have been "Is Witcher coming to the PS3?", or "Witcher being ported to PS3". I just simply don't like that the word 'confirmed' was used. [Please don't take my comments too seriously it's nothing personal. I'm just trying to give constructive criticism. I am also very bad at conveying my tone in text so I hope you weren't offened.]
