    Who will buy it on release? And which version (Premium or Colector's)?

    I'm buying for the PC the Premium Edition. 

    You?

    Which the momentum brought to the thread, does anyone know if there is going to be a demo for the game?

    Yeah, I thought it was also being released on the consoles at launch. ^^

    PC Premium. I contemplated buying Steam version, but I just want that COIN. Anyways, I may buy it on Steam later on if it is discounted.

    You can always buy a bundle of computer and Witcher 2. ^^ 

    For me, I was going to pre-order it, but for whatever reason I would receive the game only two weeks after release. :(

    I've got the collectors edition on pre-order.
    Too bad that it comes with a silly bust of Geralts head though, rather than one of the Witcher medallions everyone has been begging for since the first game was released.

    Also I know some of the soundtrack is floating around already - anyone know what track this is

    really liking the ambient, acoustic vibe. "
    It is download only. I wanted the extras. Maybe cave in and preorder it at a retail store.

    The music is really nice. Projekt RED seems to be really excelling expectations in this game.

    Definitely getting it. Depending on preliminary reports about the game's specific bugginess it will be soon after release or in a year or two. The Witcher 1 was a mess at launch and it took them about a year to clean it up.

    So yes. I will get it. Very likely in its release month.

    I won't be buying this just on users recommendations... I got burned the last time. I hate the first game. Unless Witcher 2 has above 90% on metacritic I won't be buying it ever.

    I got it for 20 back in the day...and while The Witcher is hands down the best RPG for PC period, I can't do it on launch for part 2.  

    I'll pick it up on Steam sale.

    Buying it day 1 through GOG. Would loved to have had it through Steam, but it's more expensive and doesn't come with a free game.

    Bare in mind that the first game was made on an incredibly small budget, by and unknown developer, using an unknown (in English speaking countries at least) franchise.  The released the directors cut version after the game was such a huge success and they've been given a much bigger budget to work on this one.  I wouldn't expect the same kinds of problems.

    Already pre ordered on GoG.com, there is some nice bonuses from getting it at that site.

    I'd recommend most people get it from this site as GoG and CD Projekt RED (the developers) are owned by the same parent company so most of the money will go straight to the developer.

    Preordered it already. I'm still pretty certain though, that it will be somewhat fucked at release. Given the scope and ambition of the game, it's inevitable. Hopefully it's not gamebreakingly bad.

    Pre-ordered the Collectors edition for $200, I'm probably going to regret that later.

    Since GOG is in Poland, you can actually get play the game on the 16th around 6 o'clock pm US EST. If you predownloaded, you just have to download the installer.

    I'd like to but I probably won't have enough money at the time. Also, I really need to finish the first one.
