http://buy.thewitcher.com/ I believe this will be it. Physical retail, and GOG.com digital are DRM free, yes.Since I am more interested in getting a physical copy than a digital I was wondering, will the game come with all the goodies such as everything that came with the boxed copy of 2? And every copy will be DRM free except for Steam correct?
In the collector edition you'll get a gog key to donwload it.Sure, I know that. But that doesn't change much - I don't need that kind of stuff, Witcher games are basically the only ones I want to own also physically. I will not be needing an OD for anything else. So the option to actually download a copy from GOG (as it was the case with W1 and W2 I believe, but some time after the release) would be a very nice thing.
Not yet but since the question was "will there be a digital game key inside of the Collector's Edition" and the answer was "yes" I think we can assume that it will be the case for all copies, I don't see them making different packaging depending on the retailer, especially not considering the politic of CDPR concerning preorder bonuses and exclusivityWas that confirmed for all copies, or only those sold on cdp.pl?
Wait, what? Where did you get that from? It's license that matters, not the number of copies. Following your logic, a DRM-free digital copy gives you unlimited number of free copies. No, it does not, at least legally. Nothing stops CDPR from giving you both physical and digital version tied to the same license.The Witcher 3 at retail will have no DRM. So no codes. Please don't expect to get a code. Putting a code into the retail box means that you getting two games.
Dude, your logic has some serious flaws. Do you see me ranting about this or something? I just politely asked the question, and mentioned that I got the collectors edition anyway.If you have a problem with a dvd-rom and you have no friends or work PC or you can get no access to someone with a working DVD-rom or you don't want to buy the really cheap dvd-rom drive, then maybe the collector's edition is not for you.
You are seriously underestimating CDPR, the collector edition will get a GOG key, it's official, at least if you nought the Collecotr Edition from the CDPR online shop in poland:The Witcher 3 at retail will have no DRM. So no codes. Please don't expect to get a code. Putting a code into the retail box means that you getting two games. Maybe CDPR is ok with giving away a free game with every retail copy but I highly doubt that. CDPR has said that they have no plans for far for another back-up program. That means no codes in the box and don't expect to get any codes because you bought the retail version. If there is a code in the box, I and other, will just sell that code or sell the retail disc.
If you have a problem with a dvd-rom and you have no friends or work PC or you can get no access to someone with a working DVD-rom or you don't want to buy the really cheap dvd-rom drive, then maybe the collector's edition is not for you.
If you must have the collector's edition. Then you will have to buy the digital gog version online as well.
You not going to get a backup code with any NON-DRM retail copy of The Witcher 3. Best bet for you is to buy the digital version or install the game at a friends house and copy the files.
In fairness, until a week or so ago, the GOG site explicitly said that there would be no GOG backup copy for retail sales, then there was that message from cdp.pl...You are seriously underestimating CDPR, the collector edition will get a GOG key, it's official, at least if you nought the Collecotr Edition from the CDPR online shop in poland:
And I think your tone is a little harsh, please keep it cool.
AFAIK I am not obliged to provide you with my personal motivations while asking a really simple question which you can answer just "yes" or "no".My logic is flawed lol. Just buy a cheap dvd-rom. Then you sorted. But you looking for a handout. lol. DVD-roms are so damn cheap. You can buy like 3 dvd-roms for the price of a gog code. lol. But you want that code for free because you don't want to buy a dvd-rom. That's not CDPR's problem. Don't make it theirs.
This is not a matter of money, this is about how much trouble will I have to get through to install the game. If I have to buy an OD only for TW3, I'll just buy a second copy on GOG instead so my money will go to CDPR, not an OD retailer.
I think there is no need to come to this, according to the post i shared above there is only one place to preorder the CE in poland, cdp.pl and @styku preorder it in poland so his CE is supposed to have a gog key if I am not mistaken.The other option, which would be cost-free, would be to use some other PC to copy the disk onto a flashdrive, if that's a practical solution.
