Default The Witcher 2 - Steam 81% of digital sales

CD Projekt have released figures about their digital sales of The Witcher 2

Steam - 195,000 (81%)
GOG - 35,000 (15%)
The Rest - 10,000 (4%)

With retail/e-tail boxed copies their total sales are believed to be over 1 million.

Very interesting considering the GOG version was DRM free, and could be linked, like most games, to Steam for overlay purposes.

I just grabbed it for about $14 from a site that isn't GOG or steam. It seems like a great game, but so does the first, which I've had for at least 2 years and still haven't finished...

All copies are DRM free as of the 1st or 2nd patch

Couldn't go for more than a couple of hours on Witcher but finished Witcher 2 and wishing there was more. Am going to eventually replay it and take a different branch once I clear a backlog of current games - which should erase some of the memory of playing it.

Same, although admittedly I haven't really given it a chance. I've read it improves as you get into it more.
