My son bought it day one. A few glitches here and there, but nothing close to a game breaker.

Saying that games should NOT have to be patched this much after the release date.

This patch seems less about game breaking bugs and more about adding things people complained about. Changes to their design choices, which were not bugs at all...

"the new patch from CD Projekt Red will deliver player stashes, an optional movement response for Geralt, improved horse controls, a ton of positive inventory alterations (like Alchemy and Crafting supplies no longer count toward overall weight"

If that's the case I'm in trouble. I finally gave in after 60 hours of dealing with crashes and game freezing. its a shame cause I like the witcher series story and lore so much. Smh

I've played it since day one and I've had no real issues.

Tip for anyone playing this on a gsync monitor: set pre-rendered frames to 1 in the Nvidia Control gives you a perfectly smooth framerate.

A lot of these issues are design choices and CDPR is not obligated to patch them, be thankful they are. They could choose to release the game as is and offer minimal support. I applaud how they've handled the release of the Witcher 3, the graphics are almost on par with the E3 video now.

I'm starting to wait a couple months after games come out to buy them. I have such a backlog it doesnt matter anyways. The only Dayo 1 games I've preordered are fallout 4 pipboy edition bc its limited.

usually everything drops by $10+ by the time im ready to play

It's worth to have since day 1. These patches are fixing things players want and adding some new stuff. I don't regret buying it day one.

I got it a few days after the first patch, completely worth it, no game breaking issues or maybe it was so good of a game I didn't notice.
