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 helpmerefund@cdprojektred.com and we will do our best to help you. Starting from today, you can contact us for a week up until December 21st, 2020.

Humbly
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.

The market is operating in a fair and open manner. No one's being stopped from going out and starting a competing service where they can set whatever rules they like. If you disagree with how those corporations behave don't use their services.
So a dominant platform holder can do whatever it likes because anyone else can go out and start a global media empire? Do you even listen to your own bullshit?

Youtube has no obligation to the people who use it in hopes of making money, much less a living. Tiktok popped up virtually overnight, same with Twitch. And while Vimeo is much smaller they still have 170 million people, on average, that use their service. So yeah, there's competition out there too.
So you'd be okay if the postal service stopped delivering some of your mail because anyone can go out and start their own postal service? The reality is that when a company gets to a certain size it has an obligation to be run in a fair and transparent manner, which should be enforced by governments. YouTube should still be free to have their own moderation policies but they should be transparent and applied consistently, with independent arbitration for disputes. I don't subscribe to your capitalist wet dream.

Some of you guys keep talking about these companies like they have some sort of obligation to people when they don't. Same if you walk into my resto and I don't like the looks of you. Out you go. The management reserves the right to refuse service, and rightfully so.
Of course businesses have an obligation to society. Businesses that fail to operate for the betterment of society should be prohibited. Great examples of that would be patent trolls, scalpers, payday loan companies, etc. All serve only to enrich themselves, without providing any benefit to society. In your example, would you allow a restaurant owner to refuse to serve black customers because management has final say? You might, but any reasonable person would say no because that would be detrimental to society.
