Cyberpunk 2077….Wait What?

Well, well, well. Wonders never cease, it would seem.

We all know the massive, there is no other word, balls up Cyberpunk 2077 was on release. Littered with game breaking bugs and making it unplayable on the PS4 and Xbox One. So much so that Sony removed it from their store.

I’m not too sure about the fate of the game on PC, as I saw a lot of gameplay on Youtube. I assume, that even though buggy, the game was still playable for the Master Race.

CDPR, labeled a bunch of snake oil salesmen at the launch of Cyberpunk, has released several patches to try and fix most of the issues and evidently will continue to release patches to fix the game.

Sony has since put the game back on the digital PlayStation Store with a stern warning:

“IMPORTANT NOTICE: Users continue to experience performance issues with this game. Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended.”

But warnings forsooth!!!!

It would seem that Cyberpunk 2077 was the most downloaded game on PS4 in June in the US, Canada and Europe, beating mainstays like GTA 5, FIFA 21 (*shudders*…awkies) and Minecraft. This is according to a blog, released by Sony, listing the most downloaded games of the past month.

The game is not on the PS5 charts at all, as no PS5 version exists as of yet, with the PS5 version evidently landing “later in the year”. A lot of these downloads might be for the PS5, but will still count as a PS4 game.

It is also worth mentioning that Cyberpunk runs pretty well on the PS4 Pro at the moment, or that is the rumour, so it is a given that people will want to play it. I mean the premise behind the game had everyone talking and looking forward to it.

It’s also fair to mention that most of this had to have happened from word of mouth, Youtube videos and such as Sony reinstated the game on the PlayStation store without any fanfare. It’s also not very prominently featured on the pages of said store.

Will you be playing Cyberpunk anytime soon? Or should I say, take the gamble anytime soon?

If you are currently playing Cyberpunk, let us know how it is, particularly on the PS4 Pro.

Kasie thinks he might wait for the PS5 version, let it stew a bit, and run through some patch cycles and maybe one day pick it up on a sale.

  1. Played it on a Series X, and although portions looked like GTA San Andreas, in terms of high fidelity graphics, I got quite far, and then abandoned it for something else that came along. I would like to return, but only once the next gen versions officially come out. It was bitter sweet as the Series X upgrade on my part was done because of the game. But as there was a level of enjoyment, I really can’t call it a waste.

    On got about what I guess is 25% along the storyline before bug stopped the progression of the save file or any recent save files at which stage I parked it.

    Might try it again now a crapload of patches are out

    I think its just bollocks that they haven’t got a PS4 version that works properly. Since the hype began I had my eye on it and once it came out I was bitterly disappointed that it would be a waste of money for me to buy it. Not all of us can afford PS5 or Xbox Series X, nevermind a butch PC which would be the ideal choice. Instead, I have played other stuff instead like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ghost of Tsushima and Outer Worlds (which was awesome albeit very short). It also forced me to dip back into Doom Eternal, which has been seriously satisfying indeed, but left me with this question : How can other developers of the games just mentioned manage to make their games work and look beautiful on a PS4, but yet the folks who brought us The Witcher 3 buggered things up so epically ? Shocking !

      Agreed. I feel I dodged a bullet with this one as it was bought for me as a birthday gift in December, luckily I managed to exchange it at BT games within the returns policy window for Assassins Creed Valhalla. I may look at picking it up again in 2022 if they can salvage it

    Played on PC and I give the game Meh/10 rating. It was simply OKAY and didn’t come close to meeting the expectations due to the hype created by CDPR themselves.

    CDPR I think bit off more they could chew. The Witcher 3 was built upon by doing the first 2 games and learning various mechanics and mastering them. They started small and then went big. With Cyberpunk the formula from the Witcher series changed too much and they tried to do too much. Verticality, first person shooter, driving, a ton more NPCs, etc. Cyberpunk was just too different to The Witcher 3. I think doing a smaller more compact Cyberpunk game first (done well and used to get their heads around new concepts) would have been better and then after that, then step up like they did for The Witcher 3.

    The game is great, it’s the gaming journalism community that couldn’t see the forest through the trees on this one. Witcher was plagued with the same issues, to a far lesser degree mind you, but CDPR still managed to create a gem. That is and will continue to be the situation with Cyberpunk.
