    Is it just me or would you have expected it to sell more by now.
    Perhaps some people who would have been PC users in the past are waiting for the 360 version.

    don’t be a smart ass dude

    70% of PC gamers buy their games digitally now …and that’s not in the count …

    the 360 version won’t be like the PC version at all … this is a heavy hardcore RPG designed for PC …

    have fun with the port !!!

    Massive gratz to CD Projekt! I cannot wait for the announced 2.0 update. I also really hope they make an expansion to finish off the story, I did feel a little unfulfilled by the ending; I wanted more.

    @4 That would explain it but the article doesn’t seem to make it clear either way. Not being a smart arse, my 360 example is exactly what I’m doing. I will enjoy the port thanks, I’m sure CDP will do a good job of it.

    This game is garbage, IMO. I can’t believe it busted out 1M copies. Jeez…
