lukaszthegreat: question...

if i make a preorder now... don't pay anything and i still get free game or i have to pay for preorder to receive it.
You don't get a free game until you pay for the Witcher 2 on or after release day.
Could you guys please also bring the original Witcher game (including all the extra content in the collector's edition) to GOG? I have not played the original one and I would like to play that too.
I haven't played the first one. What is it comparable to? Is this one much the same?

EDIT: Cancel my second question. No one knows, of course. I just got caught up in the moment.

You know, Im now buying 2 copy's of The Witcher 2... Limited Edition and DRM free edition

Its official, I would pay more money to get my games without DRM

Love to get the first one DRM Free too, Theres a patch to remove it yes, But it takes ages to install via disc :/
I personally don't like PC new game because you have to upgrade your computer (CPU,RAM,Video Card) for those game. I just think it is too much for me that on top of the game price I still have to pay for those hardware upgrade. What's worse is almost each new game require more and more, it's a never ending story. That's why I prefer buying new console game not PC game, and why I like this site for offering old game. Well, I think GOG doesn't need to offer *very old* game, games that are two or even one year old is fair to me. But to tell the truth, I don't like the idea of *new* game offering here. It looks like to me that GOG is distracting their philosophy. However, if it is business terms and deal with the game company for those company to offer games to GOG then I will feel more comfortable.

StingingVelvet: Ever game is DRM free for pirates, I fail to see much of a difference.
The difference is paying customers don't get the shaft. It's not that hard to figure out, really. Or would you rather they go with Ubisoft's plan?

Aieeeee.... for the last freaking time it's a one-time thing. It's called cross-promotion. Expensive cross-promotion yes, possibly annoying to have a new game on a service that usually sells old games, yes, but this won't happen all the time.

It's like the Jetsons on the Flintstones.
Bloody hell...people are actually complaining about this?

Now I've seen it all.

Don't worry, it's just for this game, and maybe other titles by CD Projekt, the company behind GOG.com.

As for new games, well, it's generally best to leave them for a few years, since you generally need to upgrade every few years anyway. You just pick up the titles as they become playable to you, and by that time you have the patches and the hindsight on whether or not a game is good.

From the minimum requirements I've seen for The Witcher 2, though, it doesn't require too much, but I've yet to see the recommended stats.
You really have to upgrade your hardware if u want the best graphic performances in the game instead you can use "old" hardware to play... I always buy the best graphic card in a serie with 3 or 4 years "old"... with this philosophy I can play to recent game like Call of Juarez with a 50 or 70€ graphic card ;)
Don't upgrade your processor, upgrade only your graphic card and only when drivers are not enough to make u play fluidly to the game... you will spare a lot of money ;)

I'm playing every kind of games with hardware from 2005/2006 ;)

This is too awesome for words so I will proceed to do an interpretive dance.
It is awesome, I'll admit.

But aren't you a little besides your demographic? I for one can't possibly take part because my hardware is low grade and I rarely upgrade it. This is one reason why I love Good OLD Games so much, and I imagine a fair amount of people share my reasons.
This is fantastic news! Of course I pre-ordered as soon as I read this. I'll try to get my friends to do the same. We, the gaming community, need to support this!
This is awesome a new game with no DRM. How long will this offer be available? I should have a higher end rig built by late january.
