@kireek said in The Cyberpunk 2077 Snuff Chip Problem:
We reach the crux of the problem... and the original post. It isn't freaks that make the market, there are too few to really make such a detailed operation sustainable..
You're making an assumption, here. A pretty big one. Niche markets are still markets. It just means that you have less competition and can, in fact, charge higher prices, especially given the danger/effort involved in making it.
Yes, it absolutely can be sold to 'a couple of freaks' for very high prices, just like any other item in a niche market.
Also, we see the producers and the buyers in-game, and go through the process of making such a purchase ourselves. The producers are scummy, desperate people and it's clear that this product -- even in a city where most illicit goods and services are easily available -- requires an extra level of precaution before you can even meet the distributor. And other buyers are portrayed as scumbags too.
They're not just average dumb, complacent consumers who are numbly stumbling into it. They're clammy desperate types who are taking a huge risk and absolutely knowing what they're getting into.
I really don't get why you think otherwise, other than you maybe weren't paying enough attention to the dialogue and all the steps and their implications. The main characters comment on almost every single aspect, too, expressing their disgust and contempt with literally everyone involved.
There is nothing insidious happening here. Nobody at CDPR is trying to BRAINWASH THE MASSES, that just...well.
Thank you to those who have reached out. I am set now! (Largely from someone deciding to just, uh, send me the game- you know who you are and thank you.)

It's an app that was recommended to me that simulates gameplay to get your library to generate cards. Been running it since yesterday and already got about ten? cards out of it. So it takes time! But for anyone else who is trying to do the 'sell cards so I can get games' thing, it can help a lot.
@ZombieGenesis I didn't think I liked playing survivor at first, but I do. I have Kate to almost level 20 already. I think the best tip you gave me was 'never assume a killer can see you'. I have Spine Chill with Kate and I tend sometimes to hide when the killer can't see me, then run out when I think he's gone and boom.
I have Leatherface to almost level 20 as well, and The Pig. I like some of Otz's commentary but I've been watching a lot of Yerv and OhTofu too!
I'm going to keep in mind Inner Strength and Small Game. I did some games as Feng last night but they were all basically shitshows where the killer was way too good for any of us.
There are three mods I would recommend you look at. All of them are simple to install, you just run the provided installer. Each of them does slightly different things. The most complete mod out of all is Camarilla Edition, but Clan Quest is fun too. Final Nights is a fun mod, but it can still have some bugs, so approach it with caution. Also, you should know that while Camarilla Edition and Clan Quest just modify the original game with new options to make it better, Final Nights is meant to be an entirely new experience unlike the original game.
