CDPR also mentioned that they will prepare some special material (in game or in upcoming trailers or some other content) that will help Xbox gamers get into the Witcher's world. So keep your eyes out for it, and yeah, welcome to the Witchaaa family

You can easily go into the story of The Witcher 2. It is quite another story in relation to events in the first Witcher.
If there are references to earlier events in the form of flashbacks that explain a lot.
The game's story is constructed in such a way that new players can easily understand it.
As to what happened in the books, the main character (Geralt) can not remember what happened earlier, before Witcher 1, so he knows no more about himself than the player
Only the characters can be more difficult because you will not know which of these characters are more or less important in the universe of books and games about Geralt. But only at the beginning.

The story is in no way simple, because there are a lot of characters and events that are happening at the same time...
But if you do love deep old-school style RPGs you'll be at home... Just remember to check your journal often, there is an entry for everything, between characters and quests.

You don't like or just simply can't?
Because I wholeheartedly recommend playing the first game. Even if PC gaming isn't in your "comfort zone" you really should give The Witcher 1 a chance. It's an absolutely brilliant RPG.

Even if you weren't into "The Witcher", it's a good book to read by itself.

PC does not equal Windows. PC games should be available for all major platforms. Utilize standard, cross-platform technologies!

I'd have to agree with eskiMoe, though. If your pc can handle it, treat yourself to GoG's version of TW1. It's more old-school than TW2, and it's rougher around the edges, but it's really worth your time. I love console gaming (PS2/PS3 mostly), but I found TW1 to be more than worth the trouble of sitting at a pc.

Listen to the man, he speaks the truth
Also, 50%(if not more) of Witcher games is in the dialogues.

From the recent games IMO only Deus EX: HR comes close, but not too close.

Well, I won't get into judging Bioware as I don't want to get too pissed off in the morning
But you will judge for yourself, I agree with rtt132 that dialogue in the Witcher games is top notch and more like reading good literature while Bioware's dialogue is for me more like watching a typical Hollywood movie, huge budget but unambitious.

Yeah, we should brew some potions and sharpen our silver swords
