Agreed. I still seen them as a pc dev first and console dev second and trusted their "gameplay" trailers and interviews. Hence I spent a lot of money on pc upgrades. My own fault I suppose.Hit the nail on the head, how this was handled is actually worse than the downgrade itself.
CDPR did have a perfect image for me as well after The Witcher 2, I believed them to be one of the few (if not the only one) left in this industry that could do no wrong.
