So saw this when I woke up and as the last thing I could find in the forums was a few months old for PC I thought I'd start this thread instead.  So below is a unboxing of the collectors edition and it looks pretty damned good.
 

 

 

The collectors edition is looking good has some exclusive to platform content which as usual is likely to get some groans but otherwise it looks great....appears to be not too horribly priced here either.

 

This is shaping up to be a contender for game of the year which is pretty good considering it comes out in the first half of the year too. 

 

The game as a whole though looks great from the clips we've been shown, gameplay is looking good, environments visually stunning and the story is sounding pretty good too.  Not only that but the developer reckons there's going to be 16 free DLC adddons for this game too which is a very nice bonus and way to say thanks to those who buy the game of which I will be one.

 

So what are peoples thoughts on the clip above and the game in general??? Who is getting this, what are you liking so far and who can't wait for May for this to come out.  Personally May is going to be awesome this should be a great game and my baby girls turning 1 so that gets May high up in awesomeness for me lol.

Well The Witcher 1 and 2 are two of my favourite games ever, in particular the first game has one of the best narratives I've seen in general. It's pretty obvious I'm gonna play the crap out of 3. 

I do worry lots of new people will join in expecting a Skyrim when that's not what the series is though....

That is a pretty sweet deal especially if you were already planning on getting a new gfx card.  The gfx card makers usually are pretty good with free games on offer regularly.

I was thinking about going SLI with my 980 and that deal might just be the thing to tip me over the edge. Can't wait for this to come out. Might have to dive back into Witcher II for a refresher.

I've only played The Witcher 2 and while the storyline was great, I felt the entire second chapter really dragged and brought the game down as a whole. So due to that I was pretty undecided until I watched the video below, it's pretty old now but the first 7ish minutes had me hooked.

It's a gamble as it's international and you know what courier companies and customs etc. are like.

Could arrive tomorrow or next week but I usually plan for it to arrive about a week - 2 weeks to arrive.

Cheers thanks for the info I paid for it Monday and it says it was despatched the very same only a few hours later. Like you said however it will be a waiting game just seen everyone else's post on here making me impatient.

I'm not usually a big rpg guy but I can tell this is a great game.

At this stage though it seems a bit like there is more cutscene than gameplay, but not really in a bad way.

The other thing ive noticed in the few side quests ive done is that they are actually interesting, and I'm curious to find out what has happend or actually want to help the ai characters in the game.

A lot of the people you talk to are also somewhat interesting and for some of them you can be curious to fins out more about them in conversations.

Just a shame I haven't got to play more of it yet!!

International air mail (unless a special express service) flies on the weekend.  So this will make its way over from the UK this weekend, and you'll get it early-mid next week.
