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.

No one is compelling speech. Compelling speech means I am required to say something (you know, like when various interest groups say that you must publicly support them or they will doxx and destroy you and your business) I would not normally say.

Suppose a private entity does not want to broadcast a view it finds objectionable. The state, by means of the law and its penalties, says that the private entity must broadcast it. The private entity broadcasts the view. Why, under your framework, has the private entity not been compelled?

If the corporation's platforms are providing a public platform, then they are allowing public speech, not compelling it.

Obviously, private entities are not compelling anyone to post on their platform. I am asking why you feel they must broadcast views they don't want to broadcast under threat of being treated as a publisher. See below.

By not publishing, endorsing, or restricting speech beyond what is illegal in their jurisdiction, they are granted immunity for what others post on their platforms. Once they start to decide what speech is allowable, they have become publishers, by choosing which ideas they publish. It's not hard.

I understand that you believe platforms have gone too far in moderation. How does classifying them as publishers lead to less moderation? If, under your asserted legal regime, platforms are now liable for their content, won't that lead to more aggressive moderation and banning, not less? Legacy publishers all place substantial editorial boundaries on what will or will not be published. How would classifying social media as a publisher lead to a different result?

No one is demanding youtube announce that Cyberpunk 2077 is a glitch-ridden mess. They're just demanding that youtube allow others to make such a statement on their supposedly public (which is what they claim themselves in order to maintain safe harbor) platform.

Who do you propose should enforce this demand?

As I acknowledged up front, you have a grievance. It is unclear however that you have a proposed remedy which will actually address your grievance.
