Amazon just pushed back (up?) the ship date for my Dark Edition a few days.

Also, they appear to be taking orders for it again;

Tried this game out at PAX East, and it was one of the highlights of the show for me. Really looking forward to this.

I was one of the 1k non-professional gaming enthusiasts selected to review the game! My copy from CD Projekt is coming soon! I will post a written review on my CAG Blog, newbreview.com, and taipow.com/blog and will talk about the game on my two podcasts, Checkmate Arcade and POWCast.

Ugh! I'm still so into ME3 that I have no good reason to buy this game now. With AC Revelations still unfinished and a couple XBLA games coming out in May (oh yeah, and spending time with family, getting sleep, work, etc.).......I really shouldn't buy this but I'll be damned if I've seen one lukewarm review. Everything I've read and seen about this game is glowing. I'm probably going to be making an irresponsible decision on Tuesday. :-$

Same problem... I don't want to rush through ME3. But don't want to buy this till I am done.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Given that all of the major retail stores, plus online retailers, are carrying this; shouldn't be an issue to find it later unlike some JRPG's like Tales/WKC.

Someone stop me from making a stupid purchase. I'm so tempted to buy this for Xbox 360, and I really shouldn't be.

I already own Witcher 2 for PC. I bought it a year ago for 50 bucks, and it is still brand new and sealed in the wrapper. The plan was to play and beat The Witcher first, but I only managed to get 60 minutes into the campaign, and I lost interest. Doesn't help that it runs a bit sluggish. My PC is 5 years old now, and I don't even know if Witcher 2 will run good. It was a stupid purchase. I just can't get into PC gaming anymore.

I'm really tempted to say screw it, buy it for 360 and not have to mess with PC crap anymore. I tried to convince myself that the PC version was a useful buy because it has a game guide inside, but apparently, you get the same game guide with 360. lol

I'm just so hungry for a AAA game right now. THis year has been really disappointing so far with the releases.

Your current PC will struggle with the Witcher 2 so I'd say sell off your PC copy and put that money towards the 360 version.

My copy came today, from reading the Witcher site, all the copies were shipped on Friday as mine also was. A curious thing to note it's just a retail case (no UPC obviously) with 2 game disks; no soundtrack, instruction manual, or quest book. There's a letter from the CEO in the package asking everyone to review it as promised and gives an FTP site where you can get some assets to add to the review.

I did buy the strat guide so I'll have that to help me along.

Also anyone who register's the PC copy can get all the extra enhanced edition stuff as a free 10GB patch and also gets a DRM free copy on gog.com so that could help you sell it.

Witcher 2 is up there with Skyrim and BF 3 as the most graphically demanding games on PC.

Argh! No soundtrack or book? That is weak. Thanks for the details though - guess mine should arrive on Tuesday.

I entered into a contest for this game so I hope I win it because it looks like one of the games to play this year, related to it already having so much acclaim on the PC side.

Don't know if anyone else has read the books, but the English version of the 2nd novel in the series, Times of Contempt, is finally coming out in December! That is way too far off and not at all well-timed with the game's release, but at least they've stopped delaying it. Preordered the hardcopy at Amazon UK (the US release will likely be sometime in 2013).

I would be lucky to get $30 bucks for it, even sealed. Just hard for me to do when I'm essentially throwing my $$ away. I'll never build my own PC again. I constantly kept pouring money into upgrades, and it never could stay ahead of the game. Even struggled with end game Civ 4 which is pretty sad.
