25 quid (about AUD$37) for the deluxe digital edition here:

Beats $75 on steam or $70 on GOG.

Small caveat. One of the files I downloaded had a CRC error when I tried to install, but the installer didn't identify which of the 12 downloaded files was dodgy. I redownloaded them all only to get another error.

I'm in the process of MD5 hashing all the files to see if I can identify the dodgy file and/or resurrect a workable install out of what I have so far.

Well, the small caveat has now become a large caveat. I've downloaded the entire 16Gb of the program twice using Game's downloader and twice as individual files. Despite chewing through a huge chunk of my monthly quota, I still can't successfully install the game.

This suggests that:
a) the files hosted by Game are corrupted.
b) their downloader/server isn't worth a pinch of shit.

Either way, I'm chasing a refund now. Will keep you all updated on how that goes.

There's something here related to CRC errors, though it seems mostly related to DVD installs: Community - Patch 1.1 is coming next week - thewitcher.com

The other possibility is related to using a FAT32 drive. One of the game files is 9GB thereby making it incompatible with FAT32 formatted drives: PSA: The Witcher 2 requires an NTFS-formatted HDD | Joystiq

Hope you get it down soon. I loved Portal and though it was going to be my GOTY but Witcher 2 absolutely smashes it, IMO.

Definately NTFS drives here and unfortunately it looks like those CRC errors extend beyond the DVD edition.

When (if?) I get my money back I think I'll wait for it to show up on special on steam. Never had to redownload from there.
