CD PROJEKT RED on Cyberpunk 2077 on Last-Gen Consoles

A tweet from CD PROJEKT RED expresses apologies for the poor performance of Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (thanks Simon). They outline what's being done about this and offer refunds to dissatisfied customers for the next week:
Dear gamers,

First of all, we would like to start by apologizing to you for not showing the game on base last-gen consoles before it premiered and, in consequence, not allowing you to make a more informed decision about your purchase. We should have paid more attention to making it play better on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Second, we will fix bugs and crashes, and improve the overall experience. The first round of updates has just been released and the next one is coming within the next 7 days. Expect more, as we will update frequently whenever new improvements are ready. After the holidays, will continue working will release two large patches starting with Patch #1 in January. This will be followed by Patch #2 in February. Together these should fix the most prominent problems gamers are facing on last-gen consoles. We will be informing you about the contents of each patch ahead of their release. They won't make the game on last-gen look like its running on a high-spec PC or next-gen console, but it will be closer to that experience than it is now.

Finally, we would always like everyone who buys our games to be satisfied with their purchase. We would appreciate it if you would give us a chance, but if you are not pleased with the game on your console and don't want to wait for updates, you can opt to refund your copy. For copies purchased digitally, please use the refund system of PSN or Xbox respectively. For boxed versions, please first try to get a refund at the store where you bought the game. Should this not be possible, please contact us at and we will do our best to help you. Starting from today, you can contact us for a week up until December 21st, 2020.

Marcin Iwiński, Adam Kiciński, Adam Badowski, Michal Nowakowski, Pio Nielubowicz, Piotr Karowski

PS. PC gamers will also be getting regular updates and fixes improving the game.

So many people are firmly behind corporate censorship ("It's not censorship unless it's the government, man..."), never dreaming that their own opinions and speech will be the next to go. Like Robespierre to the guillotine, they are shocked that the monster they created has turned on them.

I understand that you have a grievance with the content moderation policies of private entities whom you interact with. How exactly should that grievance be resolved without introducing greater state burdens on the behavior and speech of private entities and individuals? If the state can compel private entity A to broadcast controversial claim B, what prevents the state from compelling private entity C to censor controversial claim D? If you believe that private entities should be compelled to broadcast all ideas, and censor none, what is to prevent you yourself from being compelled to speak a specific idea?
Any platform that is widely used and which people rely on for their living—YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc—should be free to moderate content. However, there needs to be transparency regarding editorial decisions and there needs to be independent arbitration for disputes. No-one is advocating that governments decide what content is and isn't acceptable but they have a duty to ensure that markets are operating in a fair manner.

In this particular case, a content producer had their video silently censored without notification or justification and that has a serious impact on their ability to earn a living. And it's not like YouTube has any legitimate competitors, meaning the market isn't functioning properly.
