The Witcher 2 - GOG sells 35k, Steam 195k

This is an interesting one from the business side because Steam sales figures are extremely rare. In an interview at Eurogamer that coincides with CD Projekt's "Investor Day", Marcin Iwiński says GOG sold 35,000 digital copies of The Witcher 2, while Steam moved 195,000. Apparently all the others added together amounted to a mere 10,000. This mix is interesting but it also flies in the face of other claims that digital is outstripping retail with the game having sold 1M altogether - possibly the strong sales in Eastern Europe might skew that:

Top was, of course, Steam. More than 195,000 units were sold through Valve's digital platform. All other digital distribution outlets combined sold approximately ten thousand units.

In total, The Witcher 2 sold nearly a quarter of a million units digitally.
