The Witcher 3’s Physical Content Has Me Regretting My Digital Purchase

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

I made a mistake; there are no two ways around it.

At some point after having already purchased a digital version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, I learned that the physical edition would have been worth purchasing. The free content in just the standard edition of the box release went far beyond many collector’s editions.

There’s a map. Sure, it might not be as faithful to the in-game map as GTA V or even Skyrim, but I want it. I want the booklet that runs down plot points from previous games, the compendium of all things Witcher, foe and friend alike.

I most certainly want the CD soundtrack, are you kidding me? And Witcher stickers? Give me some of those!

Ugh. Why did I buy the digital copy? I’ll tell you why: I’m lazy and I wanted to play the game at the earliest possible moment. I wanted the digital pre-install rather than heading out to whatever midnight release shenanigans might be happening in town. Now I’m ruing the day I laid my eyes on a physical copy (owned by Josh, the Lightgun Galaxy site owner).

The only solution is to drop another $60 bucks on the physical copy and cry myself to sleep. At least it’ll be a mixture of sad tears and happy I-have-Witcher-stickers-tears.
