Video below is CD Project RED’s unboxing of the Collector’s Edition

If all of this wasn’t enough Witcher for you?  Just two days prior, on June 3 the US President Barrack Obama was in CD Projekt RED/GOG’s home country of Poland.  During a speech President Obama and Prime Minister Tusk of Poland deliver remarks to the press after their meeting and during that event President Obama was quoted as saying “In fact, the last time I was here, Donald gave me a gift – the video game developed here in Poland that’s won fans the world over, The Witcher. I confess, I’m not very good at video games, but I’ve been told that it is a great example of Poland’s place in the new global economy and it’s a tribute to the talents and the work ethic of the Polish people, as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders, like Prime Minister Tusk.”

Maybe a Witcher 3: Presidential Edition could be in the works…..

At 5:35 is where this part of the speech occurs
