Well good for them for acknowledging they screwed the pooch royally on last gen. It does not make up for actively not showing any footage of it (and I do not for a second buy the idea that they just forgot), and it certainly doesn't make up for the game being in this condition after they had the audacity to institute crunch despite promising not to, but its still a step above what other companies would do regarding this situation.
I'm going to wait for the next patch to see if the improvements are noticeable, if not then I'll refund the game until I have A PS5, if so ill hold on to it and keep playing.
That said, I've been preaching elsewhere for a while now that I believe that the video game industry as a whole needs a proper governing body, one that can assess and block releases if a game is technically up to snuff. Not a body meant to judge s games morality (though I certainly wouldn't be against them being able to block a release due to excessive MTs or deceptive advertising practices) but a governing body that is out to put the consumer first. The ESRB is currently unable (and seemingly unwilling) to do that. This launch just adds more fuel to my fire in this regard.
