Polish Prime Minister Gifts Witcher 2 to President Obama
MAY 28, 2011 • In what may be a first in presidential gifts, during his visit to Poland, President Barack Obama was presented a collector’s edition copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings by Polish Prime Minister Donald Franciszek Tusk. The PC game was developed by CD Projekt in Warsaw.
Impact: Although the gift was likely a sly play on, and acknowledgement of, the demise of Osama bin Laden, we think it a fitting testament to the worldwide stature of electronic games that one national leader would present another with an example of a home-grown major franchise. What we would really like to know, however, is whether Blackberry-loving Obama actually will play the game.
