CD Projekt RED just announced on their conference that The Witcher 2 sold 1.7 million copies on PC only. Nice number indeed. Hope the X360 will reach at least half of that..

STALKER 2!? LOL ur desperate STALKER isn't dead they've announced that they're still working on it. It had nothing to do with them being PC exclusive but their Country's government and failing to get a publisher for console versions which I guess you can say console development almost killed them

Yep it sure will since everybody pirated it on pc already. Everybody I know who has consoles and pc has arleady played this for free. If it were released on 360 first it would have sold so much more. Nobody here wants to mod their console but everybody pirates on pc because it is so fast and easy and you don't have to mod nothing.

Oh and here is a little gift for you all. You were wondering why the Witcher devs decided to star releasing their games on consoles? Here is why http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/12/09/wuh-oh-gsc-stalker-2-dead/ That would happen to them if they would not. STALKER SERIE IS DEAD! Goes to show you how good pc gaming is doing. They even said that developing a shooter for pc only is not worth it.

You do realize that Skyrim is the biggest RPG game out there. Their company has done several award winning RPG in the resent decade. They had humongous advertising and marketing etc.... So there is no reason to even begin to compare. But hey see where skyrim sold the least ammount of copies 360,ps3 or pc. The answer is pc.

hahaha nilli has played through the witcher 2 twice.

He palyed witcher 2 twice? hahahah...please nilli, 1 million on drm free game is more than enough to make the developers happy, just comes to show you that witcher fanbase is there, and its not for people like you or for dragon age 2 fans, meaning console fans, this is for people who like a good story, a good hardcore rpg, so it was made for a specific crowd of crpg players. Something youre not, so stop pretending and go back to dragon age 2. If witcher 2 had the advertisemnt bf3, dragon age 2 did, it would sell a lot more.

IM gonna put this here too so everybody can see what a freaking loser you are! CLOS = Retard little child! CD Project said that witcher digital sales surpassed 250K not half a mil. The game has not yet sold over 1 million on pc. This just goes to show you how weak the steam sales and digital sales on pc generally are. Only reason Why Skyrim pulled "big" numbers on steam is because THE GAME USES STEAMWORKS! So it has all the retail copies as well. This game series shows exactly how pc gaming is dying and why the developers care less and less about pc development. It is an after thought.

Blizzard has no problem with piracy because their games are heavily multiplayer focused. You see them making pure single player games? Valve would never say anything since they have the biggest direct to drive service on pc. Pc is shrinking all the time. Exclusives vanishing and this means that the games are made on consoles terms. Pc gamers are the ones moving to ipads etc... since today you can do the same shit with those than with pc. People buy a console and an ipad and they don't need the hunk of junk pc's anymore. Desktops are nearly done. Nobody is buying those anymore. Acer CEO resigned just little time ago the main reason was that the taplets are eating away the desktop pcs. Only morons would waste their time and money on pc's.

lol nilli, steam takes way less than game distributors like gamestop take, not to mention royalty fees which take up 12 dollars, so what the devs and publisherts get are 10 dollars each. Now let's say if steam and DD distributors took 50% percent, which is absurd, the publisher and dev make 12,5 each, even then it's more profitable on PC. Also, i think GoG got like 100k+ sales, meaning every cent went directly to the devs, cool huh, where can you find something like that on consoles :D? Also, the game cost 20 mil with marketing andsuch, so you can imagine the profits already ;)

You do know that Fable 3 is a piece of shit game and they released it like over six months later on 360. Witcher 2 will sell way more on 360 than Fable 3 did on pc. That will show you also how CD project should have released the game on 360 firts. Unfortunately it will never reach its true potential because they first released it on pc where it sold 1 mil LOL and got pirated millions of times. Oh and just to make it clear nro 1 game on the most pirated list on pc got pirated more than almost all the 360 games in top 5 combined. Now go check how much those games sold on pc vs console. Mass effect 2 and mafia 2 both sold like utter shit on pc and meanwhile SC2 and BFBC2 saw success. HMMMM why do you think that is. There is only one explanation... PC PIRACY. Those games were singleplayer and the rest were multiplayer focused. There you have it. No point to ever create a single player game for the disappearing pc crowd. Only thieves stay on that platform.

There nealy no piracy on consoles when you compare it to pc. Check any multipaltform title from torrent sites and the you can multiplay the console version downloads with 1000 to even get close to pc numbers. If they would have released this game on 360 first and then on pc later they would have sold over 3 million already like Fable 3 did.

According to developer, The Witcher 2 has sold 1 million copies only in two first months (which means, not suprising, vgcharts underestimated PC sales a lot and i'm not talking about digital, because it's only 20% of the witcher sales, not 40%). Sales are 30% better than witcher 1 and it's expected to get more than 2 million on PC only (the witcher 1 sold 1.7 mln copies in total). And witcher 2 is not biggest PC release this year, The Old Republic will be.

@nilli yes TV commercials do matter since they play a big role in marketing a lot. Also "Bethesda Softworks announced today that Oblivion, the fourth installment in the award-winning Elder Scrolls series, has sold more than 1.7 million copies for PC and Xbox 360 since its March 20th launch date. According to the NPD group Oblivion is currently the top selling PC game in North America, Germany, France, and the UK with the Special Collector's Edition (which includes Pocket Guide to the Empire, "Making of Oblivion" Documentary, and a Septim Gold Coin for a retail cost $10 more than the non-collector's edition) right behind it. The two versions represented 13% of all PC game sales during their first week of release." All those games you listed had marketing campaigns bigger then The Witcher 2 except demon's souls. The sales of the PC version went past CD Projekts expectations and they seem pretty satiisfied with what they currently got, ever though that maybe they simply just want to expand their market? "you do realize that Witcher 2 was consideret the next coming of Jesus amongst the pc gamers and all they can get is million sales" I haven't seen any hype like that even then still ain't as hyped as the upcoming Diablo 3 that's a game PC gamers are making it look like the next coming of Jesus the newest Diablo 3 trailer has more views then the oldest Witcher 2 trailer/footage. IF there first title took a year to sell 1 million copies and their sequel did that in just 3 months how is that a failure, not to mention it hasn't been out for a year just 3 months and with 2.0 coming out their sales will boost. I love how you keep trying to pass it off as the most hyped PC release when it clearly isn't. "Witcher 2 is the last witcher game that will ever come exclusively on pc or even as a timed exclusive. THAT SHOWS YOU HOW MUCH FAITH EVEN CD POJECT HAS FOR PC! " Your making your own assumptions instead of listening to what CD projekt has said and the basic facts like the game was on a 8 million dollar development budget with a marketing campaign that doesn't go past trailers on youtube and the current copies sold generated $47 million in profit. Your not using facts or anything to back up what you say your just using your own assumptions.

What a freaking joke! So those had tv commercials LOL! Getting desperate. I just gave you what 10 games that did better than Witcher 2. you do realize that Witcher 2 was consideret the next coming of Jesus amongst the pc gamers and all they can get is million sales :D. Oh and about Oblivion. IT SOLD WAY BETTER ON CONSOLES JUST LIKE EVERY SINGLE MULTIPLATFORM GAME. Witcher 2 is the last witcher game that will ever come exclusively on pc or even as a timed exclusive. THAT SHOWS YOU HOW MUCH FAITH EVEN CD POJECT HAS FOR PC!

@nilli Wow nice try with that list of RPGs, Oblivion sales on PC and Xbox 360 were on par Demon Souls did worse then The Witcher 2 and is on par with The Witcher 1, Dragon Age Origins/2, Fallout3/New Vegas, Fable2/3, Mass Effect 1/2, all have had TV Commercials and marketing campaigns behind them. And Final Fantasy? Like you said to me on Total War wall about that series being old and Vanqiuish being a new IP I'm gonna use your own material against you XD The Final Fantasy Series is A LOT older then The Witcher series must be some crappy so yeah it don't count derp! Before you go and say Demon Souls is a IP I'll let you know that From Software certainly isn't a new Developer to the market like CD Projekt they've been making games on about every single console since Dreamcast. "If witcher would have been released same time on pc and on 360 it would have sold 3 times more atleast on 360 just like every other multiplatform game. You know this to be true and CDProject made a huge mistake putting their fate in pc gamers." If The Witcher 2 had a marketing campaign like most console games behind it and was advertised as a Xbox 360 exclusive then maybe. Metro 2033, Bad Company 2, Portal 2, The Orange Box, and others would like to disagree with you. Your friends=/= every person who games on PC. "You morons think that just because you have only your crappy pc's nobody else has pc's and consoles." Since when did I ever think that? "My god you are sad losers." Oh the irony you deluded man. "Lastly about that Newzoo study. It is utter bullshti. NOBODY CAN DO A STUDY LIKE THAT!" Uhm it's not fake just because the chart isn't shown as consoles being 90% and PC being 1% like in your fanboy mind doesn't mean it's fake. I''d love to see you say this crap on a forum like gamespot the PC gamers down their would own the shit out of you and all your claims. I love how your throwing insults now XD

Oh and to answer your idiotic question: "RPG that had more success on the consoles than witcher 2". How about Fable 2, Fable 3, Finalfantasy XIII, Dragon age origins, Even dragon age 2 has sold more on ps3 and 360 combined. Mass effect 1 and 2, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Fallout new vegas, Demon souls. If witcher would have been released same time on pc and on 360 it would have sold 3 times more atleast on 360 just like every other multiplatform game. You know this to be true and CDProject made a huge mistake putting their fate in pc gamers.

Talk what ever you want idiots. Batman got delayed because of piracy. Do you think they would ever admit it. Hell no! They come up with bullshit excuses like every other developer who is smart enough not to release their games same time on pc. Evereybody i know have gaming pc's capable of running the latest games. They pirate every single game on pc possible but they also have every single console but they buy console games because they don't want to mod their consoles and they have the money to buy games. If batman would have been a console exclusive they would have bought it day one. Now they wait for couple of weeks and pirate it on pc because it is so freaking easy. Oh but I know couple of dudes who probably will buy it now since they cant wait. Pc piracy is so easy. You morons think that just because you have only your crappy pc's nobody else has pc's and consoles. My god you are sad losers. Most of us have ps3, 360 pc and even a wii. But 99% of the gamers who have all those pirate only on pc because it is so freaking easy and fast. Hell when you pirate a game and burn it you actually own more than you would over steam buy :D Lastly about that Newzoo study. It is utter bullshti. NOBODY CAN DO A STUDY LIKE THAT! the proof is in the pudding so take your time to checkout some sales numbers.

"Even Batman got delayed because of piracy" You do know that Rocksteady has said that they're using to extra month to improve/optimize the DX11, Shader Model 5, and Nvidia Physx in the PC version just like how they used the extra month for the first one for Nvidia Physx and making Mouse & keyboard controls fluid. "Are you moron? You do realize that almost all the important money for the devs comes right at the launch." Again with the desperation you actually think I was talking about 5 years later and crap ever thought that maybe people buy games after the month it was launched? How come when it comes to the console market people never seem to divide the causual, motion control crap, and etc when it comes to consoles. Newzoo chart for 2010 has shown the PC market retail+digital was 19% and this is not including MMOs, Casuals, and Social Network platforms, meanwhile all consoles combined are 43% and just realized when people do console charts they never split up the casual games which make a big/fair share of the market don't ven try to do deny that some of the consoles top selling games are things like Wii Sports, Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, Just Dance, and other crap. Wow still no facts to back up your claims and your powering your arguements on "It's a failure cause I said so! derp! These guys are clearly just lying I know cause I said so derp!"

PC market for it's freedom and profitability. And lol, what do you call hardcore games? Gears, killzone, call of duty and many other generic games and franchise tasteless, shallow console gamers play? Gaming isn't a charity buddy, if they make games for PC, it means they profit from it and if they don't - it's their fault. The dalay has nothing to do with pircacy, because it would not make absolutely no sense, because console games sales are affected by PC piracy, oh the astounding logic. Also, take a look at the popular genres that exclusives like resistance, infamous represent and then look at the bombed sales and that's comparing the multi million marketing campaigns versus a studio who has almost spent nothing for marketing, also, show an RPG that had more success on the consoles than witcher 2, which is as small and doesn't have a big publisher or marketing campaign supporting it.

See this is the problem with people like you. You find your "stats" from sites like PCGA or Nvidia. Do you think that they would ever post statistics that would show pc gaming in bad light. But even those "studies" could not hide the fact that it is not hardcore gaming anymore that brings home the money. It is the casual games and ofcourse MMO's. So here lies the problem with pc gaming. Developers are making these great games on pc and seeing how those games sell less year after year and then check the download stats from torrent sites. There is gonna be a day when they stop doing even the console ports for pc anymore. Hehe even Batman got delayed on pc. Why? Because the piracy on the first one was massive they on pc they flooded the support forums with guestions about issues that were hidden in the pirated version. Then everybody can see how shitty the game sold on pc. I just don't get it why the devs even bother anymore. You all should just thank 360 for even getting to pirate the ports on your pc because the development for 360 is so close to pc development. Oh and about the launch sales. Are you moron? You do realize that almost all the important money for the devs comes right at the launch. It means jack and shit if they sell another million for 2$ a dowload five years lates. It is peanuts for the devs. So in conclusion forget diggin up bulllshit stats and see how desktop sales and graphic cards sales have plummeted and by the way no device will ever replace the consoles. Because gaming is what people do with consoles. Concoles have taken everything that was good in pc gaming and turned it to ease and fun.

@nilli CD Projekt's expectation for The Witcher 2 sales was to be 30% more then The Witcher 1 and they achieved it. They are pretty satisfied with the goal they reached and are continueing to achieve. All that attention and hype was no where as big as Blizzard Titles and others which Cd Projekt looks up to. Why would Valve lie about Portal 2 selling more on PC just to promote steam? Steamworks is not the same as steam genius Steamworks is the service planted on it, Steamworks doesn't mean it's automatically bought from steam. You trying to define Portal 2 numbers by talking about the amount of players on launch Wow -_-, you do know that people play/buy games after launch and the amount of SIMULTANEOUS=/= total? Valve isn't lying they've said earlier about how L4D series has sold more on Xbox 360 then PC but that's about it when it comes to their titles.PC Game sales are shit I guess if the game being sold on consoles then it's a success to you like you tried to damage control about games on PC selling more or the same as consoles. When will you learn that outside Mass market/mega franchises/games and the well established developers/publishers that most games on consoles sell on par or less then their PC counterparts Didn't find one report eh? You do know they have a website showing reports here is some of them in 2009 PC market was a $13.1 billion industry, in 2010 the Market reached a total revenue of $16.2 billion, Revenues from consumer PCs capable of gaming totaled approximately $54.6 billion in 2009 and are forecasted to grow to $61.3 billion by 2014, 61.5 million PCs (Desktop and Laptops) shipped in 2009 that can largely be associated with PC gaming as a key usage scenario,lets not also forget AMD sold over 25 million DX11 cards it's first year, Nvidia recently made the report that PC gaming can generate more revenue then consoles by 2014 with how well the market is growing and with that chart if they have to combine all the consoles+handhelds inorder to show it has more revenue then PC then what does that tell you? . I highly doubt LAptops, Smartphones, and Tablets will over throw Desktops then smart phones/tablets can also overthrow the consoles and other stationary devices. The only one being the fanboy is you :)

This game was suppose to show how good the pc gaming market is doing. Only thing it showed is how weak sales even witcher 2 is getting and how piracy is booming. Even CD project are using consoles as their backup. All the anticipation and hype and they barely broke 1 million. Valve is promoting steam you idiot. There is no FUCKING way that the game sold more on pc. It uses steam works every single bought unit should be on steam retail or not and include every copy downloaded through steam by the ps3 players that got it for free. Desperate much Valve? They know where most of their sales come from. You can check how Valve is talking out their ass because it portal 2 got shitty numbers on steam when it came to simultaneous players during launch. Pc game sales are shit. Desktop sales are shit. Highend graphics card sales are shit. All this contributes for the downfall of pc gaming. Use google and report back ok. Don't just find one report from PC gaming alliance or NVidia where they try to twist the numbers without doing any real research. Companies like Nvidia release sales numbers and highend graphic cards are selling less year after year. Piracy is growing year after year. Desktop pc's are disappearing and replaced by laptops and notebooks and smartphones. You are just too much of a fanboy to admit it.

@nilli wow you're sure desperate at wanting to make it seem PC is a dead platform your probably that same dude on youtube hilpparisilkki that said the same crap and got own by Daxter609, Replicatorz and others that tried using facts to back up what they say while you power yours on fanboyism and assumptions. It's not surprising that it sold more retail then digital since this game's main market is the European market which is where most games on the PC sell retail not to mention there was a lot more things offered in retail versions as special edition at a regular price. It's sad how your trying to use this determine this how all PC games sell. Are you gonna try an tell Portal 2 on PC only sold 300k retail and very little digital even though valve has stated Portal 2 has sold more then the console versions and VG Chartz shows that the Xbox 360 version is 1.7mil and PS3 0.89 mil. Funny how you try to make this game look like it did crap even though it's far from it and you tried to damage control by saying LA Noire and that game had mass marketing behind it and was publish/co-developed by a well known company. There was constant TV Commercials for the game, I even say posters on game stores, trainstations, buses and bus stops. Meanwhile The Witcher 2 had for marketing was trailers on the internet.

bahahaha...witcher 2 is a better game than any of the casual games on deadbox. U do realize its for the hardcore, it would be too hard fo ryou, thats why it was pc first. PC is for the few elites, and you aint one of them. You use the strawman argument of consoles have more players. In reality, we have a better community, are two gens ahead and hwile your deadbox dies PC is moving ahead to i7's and ivy bridges with shader model 5.0 and dx11, thats 2 gens ahead of your deadbeat consoles. Who says you need millions to enjoy a game? BF3 will destroy COD, witcher 2 is at hear a pc game with horrible grpahics on consoles. All fps' are at heart pc games, or did you forget when you sold out to console? afte ru played doom, wolfenstein, probably even half life, unless you were playing gamecube and super ninendo like a fag and jerking it to pirncess peach. You owe it to pc for being able to play fps. Minecraft alone has sold more than a lot of console games. You think indie games do better on xbl? find me where it says that it is better than steam. Find me a success story. Steam has plenty. We get free benefits because our community is the best, the mose creative. You guys get butt raped by MS. Notice how i dont say sony, cause sony is an open platform willing to try new things, unlike dead box. Go play your washed out grpahics, on your little 40 inch tv, while i play on my eyefinity 5760x1200 resolution with dx11, sm 5.0, 60 fps gamer rig. I laugh at how limited you are, your parent must hate you or something. Your brain is tiny, full of ignorance yet you have the balls to come out and say the shit you do. I feel sorry for you and whoever has adopted you.

It was in production for 10 years. Do you think Blizzard is extremely happy for those numbers? Hell no! They even dropped the Lan support because they knew their game was gonna get pirated like no tomorrow. Oh and yes bot SC2 is mainly a multiplayer game so if you pirate you lose online.
