sellig well? For one of the best RPG's in years, I think that is low, hell, Crysis sold 1.4 million in 2 months and u need a beast of a machine to run it. PC gamers need to stop the piracy, they are shooting themselves in the foot. don't man to soind negative, glad cdproject met their goals, but, a game as good as this deserves much more sales then this, Pc gamers whine when PC games get ported, yet their own piracy is hurting the very platform they love.moocow21 said:I'm happy to see the game selling well, it's truly a fantastic achievement (not even considering it's the first game from the studio ).Can't wait for the big announcement - I'm praying for sequel (unlikely this early) or expansion (more likely) news, and I hope it isn't just an announcement of a console port (not that a console port would be a bad thing - more people would be able to play this fantastic game!).Anyway, cheers to CDProjekt Red!
Good point, but still, it has tonnes of advertising here on the web, word of mouth, I think it is a sign of the state Pc gaming is in when such a good game hits 600000, it is cheered, when more then that are probably playing pirated ciopies.Aquma said:Yes,but don't forget that it's a first game of an unknown studio.You can't really expect it to sell like for example Bioware's newest title,simply because it's not as known and it took time to make ppl know it's worth it.With a possible sequel i expect things will be quite different,since TW recieved such high praises from serious RPG gamers.
Really, every site I went on had The witcher banners on it, it got great reviews, and it is a very well known game on any forum. The problem is, piracy. Pirates are really hurting PC gaming, but they won't stop.Starwolf said:I would have to agree on the unknown studio part, also unless you are familiar with where to look, you might not even have found out about it till recently. Games by the bigger studios do get more visibility and advertising. I only found out about the Witcher because I was looking for a new game to play and happened to stumble across a pre-release review while surfing game review sites, and it happened to be in my favorite genre, so I bought it instead of Hellgate London (but it was a close decision at the time). A number of my friends though, also avid gamers, had not heard of it at all until I started raving at them about the game.
Hey, Gerald. Here's a tip: don't use so many emots, they make your posts less readable. And may I extend a warm welcome to the forum on behalf of the whole community.
