CD Projekt RED Comments on Xbox One Exclusive Collector’s Edition Items

OnlySP: CD Projekt RED has issued a statement following the less then desirable reaction to the Xbox One version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt obtaining some exclusive items in its version of the collectors edition. (PC, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox One)

How so? Microsoft has been promoting the game at every event, they're offering the game DRM free on PC and this is the first Witcher entry to even appear on a Playstation platform.

These guys are some of the best and most sincere devs around and they're getting shit on for giving something back to the company that has promoted them the most?

I understand the want for parity across platforms, but even so this doesn't warrant the comments that CD Projekt is getting one bit. Especially for their past history.

"and they're getting shit on for giving something back to the company that has promoted them the most?"

Yet they talk about treating all platforms equally? Come on, you can't say something like that and then do this, it's contradicting. It makes you look bad, so it's their fault at the end of the day.

If Microsoft have been promoting this at all their gaming events then that's up to Microsoft, CD Projekt would still have a choice when it comes to their game on what to do with it.

You should never have exclusive goodies in collectors editions when everyone is paying the same price for it. It's bad enough we've got to the point we're pre order or exclusive content in game is accepted, obviously we don't accept it as gamers but it still happens because that's what developers/publishers think.
PockyKing  +   33d ago | Well said
-Foxtrot,

From the things I've read, they're trying to make the same GAME experience. Nowhere did they ever say that Collector's Edition would be the exact same across all platforms. Plus, they have time to announce more stuff.

People took that console parity to the extreme without going into specifics of what it actually meant to CD Projekt RED.

They are a far cry from what we've come to expect from the normal developer or publisher nowadays. These little items in the Collector's Edition is being blown WAY out of porportion simply because it's coming to the Xbox platform.

I own both consoles, I've got no bias towards either. Both sides of the spectrum have gotten their fair share of exclusive content over the years. No company is perfect, and if Microsoft has been promoting the game the most, I personally think it's fine that the XB1 version is getting a little something extra.

Do I agree with it, not really, but I see why it's happening. And those fans that really want that Collector's Edition will still buy it either way.

And there's CERTAINLY a better way to go about these things then what people are doing towards the developers. It's sick how people treat game developers for something like this.

Not happy about the limited edition, then don't buy it. Simple.
darthv72  +   33d ago
So MS is paying the $$ to have a little something extra included in the box contents (not the game itself) and people are going bat crap crazy because they are not getting the same stuff in their preferred version.

Actually...they are getting the same things. As it relates to the initial CE version. All 3 versions are getting the same game, the same statue, the same odds and ends. Its only the XB1 version that is getting a bonus gift from MICROSOFT...NOT CD Projekt.

If collectors want to buy the XB1 version because of those extra trinkets, so be it. That doesnt mean that they cant buy the game itself for their preferred platform. In many cases that's what collectors do. They buy one for playing and one for displaying.

No rule says the one for displaying MUST BE the same one for the preferred platform. It would not surprise me if the XB1 CE version sells more in spite of the low system sales. That would just prove the point of collectors buying it for all the stuff in the box more so than the game itself.

It happens people...get over it.

This is so sad. These same guys attacking this dev and starting up petitions online always feel they are entitled to everything out there. Cd projekt imo shouldn't have to explain themselves&its same with Crystal Dynamics. Sony has done some exclusive deals too yet we didn't see xbox fans flaming and sending death threats to the developers..yet its same people who ordered toys r us to bring down ads promoting xbox one..its same users who have destiny dlc for a year, farcry4 exclusive share functionality and batmans scare scrow exclusive game modes (forever)yet they are here's complaining abt physical exclusiv content. Its really embarrasing to see grown dudes act so pathetic..you like it? Then go get it on xbox. The witcher2 was on 360 and MS is partnering with them now,what's so difficut to understand?

“ If you still consider that
adding two decks of
Gwent cards and a map of
the in-game world to the
Xbox One CE equals us
betraying our values and
not fulfilling our
promises, well, it does
make us sad, but the final
call is always yours to
make.”

The choice is yours to make just as CD has stated above.. If the extra content makes you so envious and filled with hate then don't buy the game at all or you could suck up your bias and buy it on Xbox one. Its easy as abc.

@lawboy

Its really shameful. Can't believe these guys actually had to make a statement. Wow.

By the words of CD Project Red, "We are treating all gamers equally," says CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski. "We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that. It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that."

@christrules... "We are treating all gamers equally," yes in regards to the game itself.

"We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms" yes, in regards to the game itself.

"nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that." yes, the game is releasing at the same time on the respected platforms.

"It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that." and so far they have stayed true to their words.

There is the regular version for PC, PS4 and XB1. There is the CE version for PC, PS4 and XB1. MS has added in a bonus gift that they paid to have made specifically for the XB1 CE. Sony could have done the same but they didn't.

CDPR are staying true to their words and the game will be released accordingly. If you want to complain, complain to the other platforms for not adding in something special at their own expense.
mechlord  +   33d ago
From the overblown responses here, im guessing im in the minority when I say this:

Well, there is always a little envy there for the things I cant get. I say cant because im a ps gamer and cant / wont get 2 consoles. Thing is, I never really buy CEs because all I want is the game that will be the same. Now, if all you want is to collect, im under the impression that collectors buy 2 copies of these things: a regular and a collectors edition. Even for the die hard ps fans, you always just buy the xone CE if all you want is to "collect it". The game is the same. Isnt that what really matters?

Where were you when we all pay the same, but PS4 is getting digital goodies on Watchdogs, Street Fighter Collector's edition and a host of other games?

I predict if microsoft can't start to pull closer to ps4 and gap continues to widen, then MS would really really need to play serious money for exclusives that will end up with weak sales at least in comparison to ps4. Then ps4 will be getting all the best stuff and i wonder if the general tone then will be all 3rd party exclusives must die.
MS still haven't affected a franchise i truly care about. I think the throwing money at devs thing just rubs ppl the wrong way.

"These guys are some of the best and most sincere devs around and they're getting shit on for giving something back to the company that has promoted them the most?"

Have you considered that, up until the Witcher 3, Sony weren't even given a chance to promote Witcher games? Rewarding a company for promoting you by granting its userbase exclusive content just because of said promotion just completely ignores the fact that you never gave the other company any chance to do the same.

This is just part of the same exclusive content B.S. that people always flip flop on whenever it benefits them, forgetting that it benefits no one.

I posted this on the articles page and it was deleted, so I re posted on his page and now I am posting here.

Pre order items are free and it's up to the individual weather or where they want to get them.

Exclusive DLC is almost always timed and every platform gets eventually and in most cases for free.

Collectors edition of games are very expensive and most people that buy them buy them for the physical items. They are charging every one the same Price Of $149.99 but two platforms , the PC and Playstaion 4, are not getting the Extra 5 to 10 dollars worth of content. Like I said it's not like time exclusive DLC where every one gets it eventually, people who buy the PC version do not get the addition content sent to them six moth down the road.

This whole deal seams kinda stupid to me, it's not going to sell more consoles , they don't even make that many of them. Most of time they end not selling them all and a couple months later can be found for considerably less than retail. I have gotten most of my collectors editions for much less than retail. plus The Witcher 2 CE had poor packaging and many people ended up with broken statues( go the the games forums and you will see for yourself). This move only gains them something with Xbox fanboys, I can't see it making much difference in console sales or game sales.

The ones that defend this deal with Cdproject and Microsoft are many of the same people that bitch to no end about Destiny (Bunji) deal with PS4. The difference is that they are not excluded from the game by the deal and they will eventually get the Exclusive DLC.

With The Witcher 2 PC and PS4 gamers will never get the extra content in the CE and have to pay the same price.

With the New Tomb raider game people are being excluded, people that bought the game at a higher rate than on the console that has exclusivity. plus Pc and Playstion are the platforms the game is more associated with.

I don't care about Microsoft or what big red did in the past, this is about people being ok with inequality from a dev that apparently used to have a better reputation.

From their excuse this just seems to be a lazy way to get more publicity, they should've just stuck to making great games and thinking up better ways to market them. They should stop with this 'political BS' and just man up and do it the right way.

Even a journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step (in the wrong direction, and at the end you have EA ;).

When, and if, you grow up, you'll realize there's a thing in the grown up world called business.

Do you think they are MS fanboys because they didn't release TW2 on PS3? They said they maybe wouldn't even be able to run the game on PS3. Remember: they had no experience with consoles and even the experienced devs complained about its complexity. Also it was MS who made a deal with them. Chances are Somy didn't try hard enough. I feel actually relieved that they decided to release TW3 on PS4.

And now they're feeding from the fanboyism because they made a deal (probably) with MS to put something more on their version of the CE?

The sad thing is that people are actually defending this crap. Were basically paying more for less and yet people can't wrap their heads around the logic of that. Pretty sad.

OT: And to all the people that try to argue the same thing with DLC. You all know for a fact that 99.9% of time all DLC eventually makes it way to other platforms. There have only been a few exceptions like the Dead Rising 2 case west or case zero DLC.

Also another thing to add if people here are not into buying CE's then you have no business commenting on something that doesn't affect you. Take it how you want to take it, but it's the truth.

You know what's being defended here, RELEASING COMPLETE SOFTWARE. You know, the actual game, the thing those of us with more sense than money will end up getting.

If the price of keeping the consoles from slicing up games and dividing among several sources, is those few willing to spend $150 on a game missing out on a piece of cloth and a deck of cards, so be it. Most of us want the actual game and not a bunch of over priced shelf junk.

What's sad is after all the support CDPR has shown to their customers in the past, that they get trashed over something so utterly stupid as a piece of cloth and some cards.

And yes, it is stupid. Its not a second statue, bigger statue, or a sword, no, its a piece of cloth and a card game. That's not just sad, its pathetic really.

You can always just walk away. Like they said, you think they wronged you? Then by all means move right the hell along. But that won't happen, that's the truth.
ConfettiYeti  +   33d ago
I agree with your stance on PS owners paying more for less, so those with a problem should just hold onto there hard earned money and wait for a price drop. If you feel missing out on a map and some cards is a big deal (and I get the argument) just wait for it to drop to $39 or $29 and pick it up then.

If you really want to get over on the developer, just buy it used. You get the game and the developer gets nothing. That could get your point across, without spilling vile and nasty remarks to the team making the game.

This is a pretty hilarious response

"we bend over backwards to give you the most beefed up editions of our games (be it standard or Collector’s)"

Or collectors? Isn't that why people are complaining? It's the whole point of this so obviously you haven't if one edition is more beefed up then the other

"and we deliver the same game, regardless of platform or version you buy"

We're not talking about the game though, this is about the contents of a collectors edition.

"Funnily enough, we did not notice any heated comments on the pre-order specials."

Gamers are ALWAYS ticked off with that sort of thing. The majority of us hate pre order stuff to begin with so I don't see why your trying to say there's no "heated comments" when there is, it's just more accepted now since nothing is done about it.

"Why are we doing this? We need the support of partners to make our game visible worldwide"

....IT'S THE WITCHER, I think it's pretty well known to gamers worldwide now. I mean it's up to the third game now. It's also based on a book which had it's own exposure, so you don't just have gamers you always have book fans aswell

I like how they think they've done nothing wrong when they have, do they think we are stupid. They are trying to spin this around and make it about the games content when it's not about that at all. No one is judging the games content or the game it's self, there's no complaints there from any of us.

Fact is you're expecting PS4 and PC owners to pay MORE for their version with LESS STUFF INCLUDED, then you have to cheek to talk about how you don't get involved in exclusive stuff because you want to treat us all "equal". Two points that totally go against each other.

As I've said when it's pre order DLC or exclusive DLC to a specific platform eventually EVERY GAMER can get that DLC. Like how the Destiny PS4 DLC will come to the Xbox One and the Evolve DLC will come to the PS4 for example

With collectors editions contents you can't add them in later can you, once you pay for it and it ships that's it, you get what your given. If you want the extra stuff and it's available online somewhere then you have to pay extra, meaning PS4/PC players would be paying even more for less.

I seriously don't understand how some people can't wrap there heads around this.

Then PS4/PC gamers are getting less value, call it what you like but you can view it either way. They will see it as more value the other side will see it as less value.

Every person here who either views it that way, are calling people babies/entitled OR saying they don't care are mostly getting it for the Xbox One anyway so this doesn't both them, to them it's more value.

"Its logical that ms get this edition if they had an agreement. Xbox gets couple of things extra and ms advertises witcher for "free"

So let me get this straight, it's totally fine for a developer to do exclusive collectors edition content yet exclusive DLC is bad. It's the same thing, except like I said about DLC would come to other consoles eventually, it doesn't work with physical content.

"And if gamers dont buy or curse at cdprojekt for somthing that doesnt have to do with the game itself, then those people cant call them self gamers."

Oh look at that, someone who seems to know what "makes a gamer".

It's about right and wrong, the game will be good yes but it dosen't give them the excuse to do this, big thing or small thing.

Like I've said before if you aren't a collector and don't like collectors editions then you won't give a shit...but some people like myself do like collecting these things and as a fan of the series I want to get the most for my money....I just want to do that on my system of choice.

"Such hatred for so small thing. Woow"

No...you just don't care. Your one of these people where if it doesn't affect you in anyway you don't care but god forbid if something else did you'd want everyone to jump on board.

Since most people see collectors editions as a waste of money I get that but maybe you should try seeing it on the other side of the fence once and a while.

According to your logic, I should feel cheated because I'm not getting ALL of that stuff with MY pre-order of the game? Even though it's the same Standard, Limited or Collector's Edition? Sorry, but you again, are making this situation "important" because it's Xbox vs PC vs PS4. It's painfully obvious.

If you have no intention on buying the CE version of this game...just stop. It isnt like you are on some crusade for gaming equality.

If you are planning on getting the CE game then get the XB1 version to collect and then buy the regular one to play for your platform of choice.

MS paid for this. Sony could do the same thing if the consumers demand it. So go tell sony you want a cloth map and cards in their version and see if sony responds in kind.

If enough people do it the point may get across to them ( don't hold your breath on that), if you buy someone else's second hand you get the game without giving money to the developer (personally I think this is terrible, but would get your point across). There are other options, your voice has been heard they have responded now speak with your wallet.

Tomorrow I'll talk to a friend who own a PS4, had PS3 etc. I'm pretty sure he doesn't know about The Witcher. A work mate (will get a PS4 soon) got crazy when he saw TW3 in the E3 confs. He didnt know about it before.

Mind blowing to you, it seems...

Yes, CDPR wants to sell their game to everyone, not only to us.

Oh, and hey, welcome to the real world.

PS: I don't believe I had to explain this... It feels like talking to a kid.

"....IT'S THE WITCHER, I think it's pretty well known to gamers worldwide now. I mean it's up to the third game now. It's also based on a book which had it's own exposure, so you don't just have gamers you always have book fans aswell"

Quite the assumption, especially for PS only gamers who have bought exactly zero copies of the franchise. Of course you're only making this assumption in order to strengthen your argument against MS's continuing support of CDPR and The Witcher franchise but I'm just letting you know it's a weak and transparent attempt. You've been all up in these comments writing tomes of outrage. Maybe it's time to go play a video game.

I see this as similar to Batman Arkham series, exclusive stuff for the PS version, its also the same price as the xbox and pc version and i haven't seen people go up in arms about it in the past and i'd argue the exclusive stuff probably costed more cash because you know a few devs had to work on it vs a clothed map and a deck of cards which probably go for 5$

Come on, death threats, petitions and whining are the calling cards of the extreme PS fanboy. This has always been the case since early PS3 days.
PS loyalists are entitled stemming from the fact that the PS2 got all the special treatment and exclusives from 3rd party. They believe that that's just the natural order of things like spoilt kids whose parents bend to their every whim.
Once they get a dose of any reality that does not support their entitlement they start throwing tantrums.

Tekken, GTA IV, DMC 4, FFXIII all got some sort of petition to stop them from making an appearance on Xbox from Playstation owners. Show me any other group of gamers who have done this as many times.

I don't care about Xbox, this is about equality for gamers. This game is important to a lot of people so of course they'll be more riled up than usual.

Even if it's been accepted in the past it doesn't mean it's right, the longer a problem exists the bigger the problem can get, might as well start fighting now.

rainslacker  +   33d ago
I've come to my own conclusion on this case.

For me, the problem I have with it is that it's bringing a trend that I hate(exclusive content), into a part of gaming that I am really in to(collector's editions). In that vein, it irks me to no end that it's getting defended by some due to console preference.

However, there is a big but in this whole case.

In this case, the extra content wouldn't be included in any edition if there was no deal at all. To that end, CDPR decided to include it in the collector's edition of the game and leave the game itself alone. In this particular case, MS is really paying for the additional content in the collector's edition. Basically MS is giving something extra to their fans, which I don't actually mind, but would have preferred if they had done it a bit differently. It's a bit of semantic word play however, as it seems it was actually CDPR decision to do this for the collector's edition, but the result is the same either way.

It doesn't affect the game, and despite my annoyance over it fragmenting the collector's market which is already starting to become convoluted with multiple collector's editions of the same game that don't just up the content on each stage of it, it's now putting in another choice, and now that choice is based on console to get the content. As a collector, I buy these collectors editions to get the extra stuff, but I also want the game more often than not, so it's annoying to have to buy a lesser version of the game, to get the extra content(and yes there are workarounds, but it just means spending more money to support a practice that I'm already against).

But again, that choice wouldn't exist if MS hadn't funded it, so it's hard to complain about this particular case on my end. In the end, it didn't actually take anything away from the other versions like some exclusive content deals do, so overall, I'll just not support the collector's editions that do stuff like this, and try to support the game, since CDPR actually does seem to want to do right by gamers and one indiscretion doesn't change that.
christocolus  +   33d ago

Exactly..and its sickening..what's even worse some in here defending such childish and pathetic practices.

Witcher 3 is the same game on the PS4 and Xbox One, no exclusive armor, weapons, or missions. All the content is the same. Yes there is a deck of cards for the Xbox One LE edition (and even different swag from retailers across the world) but it does not affect the game that you will be playing.

They never made that distinction which is the reason for the outrage by some on this matter. Everyone always brings up other devs in this matter but like I said above the difference is they have never made a claim that anything would be the same across all platform.

This does not effect me as I will not get the game if the combat is like tw2 but I can see how collector out there would feel if they're getting less for the same price.
Etackett2010  +   32d ago
I still say these 'righteous crusaders of gaming equality' are trying to keep things from appearing what this outrage truly is, PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. PC bullshit again, CD Projekt didn't need to make a distinction because as I said and as CD Projekt Red said "all the content in the game is the same" and here's why

CD PROJEKT ARE THE DEVS, game developers only create software unless they are self publishing and producing the hard copies which they are not, it's video game industry 101. it's all the same across all platforms (except for the perks of having a PC like mods and 1440p). They claim equality and therefore they created equal content for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

Warner Bros/ Namco Bandai are the PUBLISHERS of NA and EU. The role of a publisher is to mass produce and distribute the game. They mass produce the physical hard stuff and they never made such claim of equality. They are just like the retailers who are also giving bonuses to a select few crowds.

As Pockyking pointed out beautifully up above, if we go by this kind of logic, we should all be busting a nut each time a retailer offers a different preorder gift for Witcher 3 and all scream "LOWER THE PRICE" towards our retailers.

In the end, CD Projekt Red's claim is justified. People who makes software keeps the software equal for all platforms. If people want to complain, go complain to Warner Bros Games or Namco Bandai for a claim they didn't even make or making paper decks and a piece of cloth for one console, LMAO.

Well the in the eurogamer interview the quote from Marcin Iwinski states this:
"We'll not deliver exclusive content to any of the platforms, nor will we artificially delay release of the game on any of the platforms because somebody's paying us money for that. It's definitely against our values. We are not doing that."

There is no distinction about whether it is only being applied to end game. If they never made this statement I could still see people being upset but not like they are now.

I also don't believe anyone wants to keep the extra goodies off of the xbox one, they simply want the complete collection on their platform of choice.

We got CDPR (GoG). We got respect. We got complete games. We got Enhanced Editions for free because their goal was to deliver the best game they could.

They were the ONLY developer standing up for the PC platform during the DRM craze.

Do NOT for one second pretend to pity us PC gamers. ALL they've ever done is valued their customers. They are an independent developer in the AAA console world. And in that world where much larger companies caved to exclusive pre-order BS, CDPR stuck to its guns and intends to bring the same full featured G-A-M-E, to everyone.

The ONLY people this "deal" effects are those who care more about a piece of cloth and some cards that the only reason that garbage exists in the first place, the GAME.

Of course Microsoft game them money for the content. CDPR even states this.

But thats how this industry works. I'm just happy CDPR is just putting out a few exclusive physical items, and thats it. PC gamers still get the game with all the graphics bells and whistles, and will probably/possibly get better post-content support (Witcher 2 had more post-release support on PC).

I get what your saying. PC gamers have been loyal for years. Some must feel shafted by this? They shouldn't. They will get the best Witcher 3 version. They will get it DRM free (which some publishers lock that shit down).

If Microsoft helps sells more copies of Witcher 3, and as a result CDPR sells more copies, it means a brighter future for the studio, GOG, gamers, etc. I honestly don't think most PC gamers will care too much when things are put in perspective. This is the industry, like it or not.

Nice to see it is not okay to take a stand against exclusive DLC for a Sony platform but once you throw in a bonus physical goody for Xbone owners it is a big deal that should not be accepted. What happened to #dealwithit and you are not entitled to anything? Apparently on N4G that is thrown out the window once it has an affect on anything besides Xbone.

People want to call CDPR hypocrites, but guess what this site is full of them. I personally do not give two craps about this, if there is one thing I hate in the gaming industry it is exclusive DLC and preorder DLC and the good news is this relates to neither so I can still buy a CE of W3 on PC and know I am getting the same content as everybody else.

The problem is simple; They are charging the same price for the collectors edition which clearly has more value on the XB1. If it's a simple matter of wanting to support the company that promoted your game (which is BS IMO) then do so, but charge the PC and PS4 owners the same price for something less. The simple solution would to give XB1 owners exclusive content, and then PS4 and PC owners something different. They really need to hire a PR person because every time they open their mouths it' a major turn-off. They sound as if they are doing us all a favor by making this game. Screw that...

Microsoft opened the treasure chest yet again and cd project reds eyes were filled with gold, to think a company of any sort is above being paid off for exclusives ect is naive, they made themselves look all down to earth and then do this, its tiny but shows you that a company is still a company.

Who wants to bet the game will still sell a lot more on the ps4?

The "game" itself, probably. It is the first time on a PS system. But as far as the CE version goes...that remains to be seen.

Collectors are the ones who buy the CE versions. The ratio of collectors to just average gamers is varying depending on the game and collectors edition being offered.

Gamers are such a pathetic lot. It's situations like this as to why gaming and particularly gamers aren't taken seriously. The avg age of a gamer is around 30, but you constantly see these gamers acting like spoiled entitled brats. It's sad, it's maddening and as stated before, pathetic.
