It's reassuring to hear that the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is skipping past the crowded March release schedule in favor of an April 17th launch in North America.

If you missed out on the original game for any number of reasons, this is increasingly sounding like a worthwhile option given the extras packed in. That said, one look at the attached screenshots and you'll see that the gap in visual fidelity between PC and consoles is wide and only getting wider.

But graphics don't matter to you that much, right?
