Witcher 2 : Assassin of Kings sales thread

Forums - PC Discussion - Witcher 2 : Assassin of Kings sales thread

Got some fresh news straight off the press:

http://forsal.pl/artykuly/515821,wiedzmin_2_ustanowil_rekord_sprzedazy_na_polskim_rynku_gier.html

Basically Witcher 2 has set a new Polish record for game launches selling 56,000 copies in 3 days since launch. When comparing these sales against Witcher 1 then we see that the Witcher 2 is selling 60% more copies in the same time frame as its predecessor. Additionaly Witcher 1 sold 35,000 units when it's 3 day launch period was from Friday to Sunday, a period when most sales are usually made in Poland. So we can expect a further rise in sales for Witcher 2 as the weekend looms closer.

On a related note, the president of Optimus, mother company of CD Projekt has gone on record saying that he is receiving positive signals concerning Witcher 2 sales from foreign markets.

Well, folks these numbers together with the preorders gives us a 200k figure for the first 3 days.  Hopefully the game will go on to the 400-500K area with foreign  sales.

I'll keep a watch on any solid numbers in the Polish news and update when i can.

Interesting news. I am actually about to buy my copy, this game was actually worth the $50, which actually surprised me.


It costs 50$ for you guys? Ouch.

In Poland you get the premium edition for 30$ and the collectors edition for 53$.

God bless CD Projekt ;)

think that's bad in NZ it's US$70 retail and that is discounted....

Yep If you go on sites like Direct to Drive and Steam Australia and New Zealand are the only countries that suffer forced markups because of retailers in the country. Really i would say F the retailers and they shouldn't be jacking up the price anyways, and if its an distributor then F them as well and sell direct to retailer. 

This has sites like GOG who are own by CD Projekt to offer 26 dollars free GOG dollars when you buy Witcher 2 which is means that CD Projekt really cares about us here in AUS/NZ that despite the australian industry worth 2 billion USD we pay more than many european nations with far less market size. 



Of Course That's Just My Opinion, I Could Be Wrong

Actually there were quite a bit of internet articals in Pland where CD Projekt was visibly pissed at the Australian market. From what i remember the issue was that the whole retail chain of multimedia in Australia didn't agree to the low prices that CD Projekt came out with.

At least because CDProjekt are awsome if you buy the digital version in a region the price is jacked up they will give you the difference in GoG credit aparently.

yea 26 dollars which they take as an lost for being nice people :D. 

But in reality there is No reason for retailers to jack up the price so high. the RRP should be 80 dollars not 110.

Now I'm sure The Witcher 2 will sell at least 3 millions lifetime!!! The first one is still selling and walking towards 2 million sales.



I have stopped supporting the Australian gaming market, all my games are imported. I pre-ordered this game before the mark-up actually happen so got the digital premium edition of the Witcher 2 for around $43 AUD.  Pretty nice.




CD Projekt are reporting 400,000 copies week one
