Congratulations to CDPR! My copy is 1 in a million :)
We're fully supportive of the quality game you guys are going to deliver. I guess this means that The Witcher 3 is already profitable for the franchise. That is great news for future expansions and a probable sequel.

they deserve it all :)

AngelicIceDiamond1196d ago

They do deserve it. They've been impressing with their vids and previews since last year.

Looks like all those who yelled "severe downgrade" and tried to make a big deal out of it are clearly in the minority.

thekhurg1196d ago

Their focused efforts on providing gamers with amazing experiences while also not actively trying to nickle and dime them is one of the big reasons why they're my favorite developer.

Can't wait for Witcher 3 on Monday, and I can't wait for Cyberpunk!

Congrats to them.

one million is a huge number not even MGS5 reached that.

Not really a good cmparison. Witcher 3 is coming out in a week.MGS5 isn't coming out for several months. Obviously the numbers wouldn't be as high.

2 of those pre-orders are mine! 1 copy isn't enough for a game of this magnitude.

(I accidently added 2 copies and checked out in a flurry of clicks before realising what I'd done)

RandomGamer1196d ago

I to am one of those million

It's just too bad that millions of copies will be pirated due to their stance on no drm .

ArchangelMike1196d ago

Although there's no DRM, it'll be intersting to see how CDPR track pirated copies. I'm sure they'll have a way of identiying illegal copies on GOG or Steam etc. As I understand it, DRM doesnt necessarily mean that pirated copies will remain playable once identified. But I could be wrong, and am happy to be corrected and put right.

I wonder getting Witcher with my gtx 970 does it count as a digital pre order or just a digital sale?

Testfire1196d ago

I would imagine sale as Nvidia has paid for those.

coming to ps3 xbox one pc this is going to kill the ps3 lol jokes aside this is going to be a awesome experience and cannot wait. These Devs deserve the sales.

Bigpappy1196d ago

I love WRPG's. They are my favorite genre. I have play Witcher2 and enjoyed it. But I am not boing to start praising this game and the developer until I have played at least some of the game for myself.

More to the topic: I was kind of expecting this game to have 2-3 mil pre-orders based on the hype surrounding the game, and based on how well Skyrim did. This is supposed to be in the same vain as Skyrim with better combat and story. We shall see.

HaveAsandwich1196d ago

my first ever digital purchase. preordered last week. playing through witcher 2 360, and its challenging for me, even on normal. i love it, and im getting better at combat/signs/bombs etc. its a great game, though some things could be done better.

Fantastic news.

The previous Witcher games didn't light up the charts, so I wasn't sure how this would do. I'm glad games that were considered niche last gen are getting more awareness surrounding them this generation. Namely this and Bloodborne.

It's a good sign for the industry seeing creativity becoming profit. It will only lead to more investments into different ideas.

greenmiker1196d ago

Congrats for that game. I can't wait to see the reviews.
