US president Barack Obama says CD Projekt Red's creative output is a "great example" of how Poland contributes to the global economy.
CD Projekt Red is one of the greatest examples of a company that understands the economy of gamers. They promote non-DRM. They promote giving you the full game without selling bits and pieces as DLC. And, on top of that, they make great games.
Nice, whoever wrote his speech must be a gamer, maybe even him.edit: Lol, that's my bad, that's what I get for comment before reading fully. Apologies Obama
Obama is a gamer!
Two of the very few big companies that rarely (or never?) make a move against gamers: From Software and CD Projekt Red. Not only for the quality of their product, but also for their attitude, that's why I support them as much as I can.
From Software just made a move against gamers, they aren't saints. Complete false advertisement over the new lighting engine. It looked so good in videos and pictures. Then all the sudden they take it out and launch the game and say" sorry the game couldn't handle it. Why was the lighting still in the beta then? Why keep advertising like it is a major feature? The lighting was a main marketing point and then they didn't deliver. Lost some respect for them over that.
Which version did you play?
I agree, and I'm happy The Witcher 3 is being developed for PS4 as well. I wish Part 1 and 2 were though
Reminds me a lot of Nintendo, and there are others as well. A true gem for the industry
even Obama knows about witcher, thats something!
Looks like video games isn't the only thing he's bad at....throw running a country in there too Barack, you worthless weak excuse for a prez.
hey hey this is no place for that you can diss his gaming skills but thats it buddy :P
He's worse than the prez in escape from ny! Total car salesman!
As if Congress has NOTHING AT ALL to do with it!??!
How about if he makes a good choice, you support him?
This isn't the place for politics, but Bush and Reagan say hi
He won twice by huge margins. did everything he promised to against Alkida. The economy is way better that when Bush left. Don't repeat everything your parents say. They are sometimes wrong. Who do you want to fight next: Russia; Iran...? Grab you gun and hop on a plane. I will help raise the money to send you off. Good luck.
from the outside looking in he seems to be a good president being weighed down by old-fashioned, narrow-minded Republicans
Great. The kiss of failure from Obama 😭
My favorite president.
We all know why he went there and it wasn't gaming :D
Cheers from Poland :-)
Just don't mention about football in Poland, lolol.
Mr. Hip Hop President is so good at PR. But let's not talk about his job as a president.
why is he "mr. hip hp president"?
I'm guessing you missed the t shirts, toys, and the rest of the Obama merchandise.
"Mr. Hip Hop President " is code for black . It's called dog whistle racism .
The Witcher is great, the books that they were adapted from are even better for any Witcher fan who never knew. I just wish I could see the TV shows that came from it.
Believe me, you DON'T want want to see that piece of crap! Brodzki(the director) and whoever wrote the script completely butchered great series.The ONLY thing that i liked about that filth was the look of Michał Żebrowski, the actor playing Geralt.
Ouch didn't know that, well at least I still have the books and games!
Maybe you should watch it, at least you could appreciate the game more after that xD btw. i still got my book signed by the actors from the series, despite it being such abomination. Fanboy is a fanboy, i guess xD
It's nice to see the president in with the gaming culture of his nation, I don't have any hatred to him or Bush and find it hysterical when you see people complaining about him like if the president really wields that much power but I'm reminded that the most vocal on here really have no education on how our democracy really works and how the Senate and the house are the ones really running the show.
Why is this news? CNN mentions GTA all the time. OMG somebody talked about a video game? Lets try to make an article about it!
Your argument fails for (at least) two reasons: 1) It implies that it is not treated as news when CNN talks about games (which is a rather ironic assertion, on your end). That implication is incorrect. N4G has posted stories about CNN (and other news outlets) mentioning games. 2) It erroneously treats the situations as comparable. Why you choose to do that, I don't know. Maybe you don't like him, like some of the trolls above who decided to turn this into a political debate. Whether you do or don't like the man, he's the president, and trying to downplay that isn't going to have the slightest effect on reality, only deluded realities people create for themselves. This is the president speaking POSITIVELY about a video game. That's newsworthy, especially given the renewed interest from certain parties in making video games the scapegoat for mass shootings. Given where that renewed interest is coming from, I would think some of the people bringing politics into this would just keep it moving.
If the Witcher is Poland's example of how they add to the economy I understand why the US has to send jets to defend them.
Hey look, Obama is making hip references again, like he did with Iron Man, to make young people think he's cool and forget about what a catastrophe he's been as a president.
