Default Witcher 2 up for Preorder on Steam

So whos going to be the first to take the dive? I quite liked the first Witcher game and will probably eventually preorder it closer to launch but for now will just sit back and wait.

I'll be buying it as soon as it launches, but I really don't see the need to pre order so far ahead.

It will also be available on GOG which confirms it'll be DRM free, unless you consider Steam DRM and purchase it from there instead.

It just got pushed back until May 2011, from a previously announced March date.

I enjoyed the enhanced edition. Bought in on a steam sale. Very high quality for a new unknown development house. Looking forward to the sequel.

Loved the Witcher. I bet I would have loved it even more if I had waited a bit longer and played the enhanced edition.

There's some NSFW info here

Now i'm tempted again! Just grabbed Dragon Age on that steam sale, thinking it would tide me over till W2 goes on sale :(
Best deal is on D2d with one of those 15% codes floating around. I don't think Steam is neccessary for this title.

Can't wait. If I did pre-order games, Witcher 2 would be one of them. I always wait until the first ~$20 off sale. By that time the first major patch, if one is needed, has also been released. Actually, the first Witcher is a good example of this. The release and the first patch had horribly long load times. It wasn't until 1.2, I believe, that the load times had been fixed. This was also when I purchased the game for about $25.
