good, i am glad. this shows that when you listen to your fans you will get rewarded. 20 men team with an 8 million dollar game did better than bioware and their whack ass fuck ass ho of a game called dragon age 2. I bought 2 copies, physical and digital. Proud of it as well. Beat it 4 times going for my 5th on dark mode.

This is kinda old!

The Witcher 2 is already well over a million units sold as reported way back in August.

One thing I do like about this article is the DRM sales figures. GOG TW2 version had NO DRM at all. None Zip Zero Nothing but sold incredibly less than Steam with it's Steam DRM.

Just goes to show you no matter what the situation Steam will get you higher sales figures especially with over 3.5 million Gamers logged on at any time.

This is only digital sales. One million units were sold thanks to the retail sales ;)

A lot of complaints these days about rampant piracy, yet you have developers like this who manage to benefit from digital distribution. Good on them for getting the sales they deserve.

Yea, like Gabe from Valve said.

It's not about implementing the best DRM out there, it's about providing an experience that's BETTER then what you can get from a pirated copy.

The Witcher 2 and Portal 2 are my GOTY so far.

Congrats on a 20 man team selling a million units which will keep going over the next 12 months and reach over 2 million on the PC as word of mouth continues just like the Witcher 1.

If your an Xbox 30 owner this would be a great RPG to add to your library and if your a PC Gamer you should have bought the TW2 already....

what are you waiting for come on Do it Do it Now!

I'm playing TW1 first ;)

Also about the DRM comment above, most people don't know about DRM.
