Cyberpunk 2077, the game of a dozen delays and impossible hype, is finally ready for its December 10 launch on a bunch of systems. Last week saw footage released for the game running on Xbox One X (meh) and Xbox Series X (better!), while this week the focus is on jacking into the Sony side of Night City. Also stop laughing, you juvenile lot. That sentence is only slightly funny.
It’s worth noting that much like the Xbox Series X footage, the PS5 video of Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the game running in backwards compatibility mode on that new and fab console. The gameplay itself focuses on the Nomad lifepath, the character starting point that kicks off the Cyberpunk adventure from the Badlands.
I’m genuinely curious to see how the game will shape up on base model PS4 and Xbox One consoles, which have surprisingly been absent so far from these graphical showcase videos. I’m guessing there will be some concessions to be made, seeing as how Cyberpunk 2077 bridges the gap between console generations. On the one side is the glorious next-gen version that’s on the horizon, resplendent in its Razor Ramon tracing, while on the other side it’s eeewww old-gen scoot go away!
And honestly, I’ll be happy when Cyberpunk 2077 is out and I can finally start putting all my hype eggs in another basket. And you all know that I’m talking about Anthem 2.0, which is going to be a million times better according to the brain damage that I just suffered after being bonked on the head during a cricket bat demonstration.
You’ll see, you’ll all see how right I am.

I’m glad they kind of made a bigger point of how it’s just backwards compatibility and not a fully fledged next-gen version yet. Internet was filled with miscommunication on the matter after the Xbox demonstration. I hope they do a PC version of this, showcasing a bit from each of the tiers on their recommended specs list. I’m curious to see what I’ll be looking at on my system and what I’ll be jealous of for the RTX systems in comparison. They described my exact system as “high” with graphics set to “ultra” but as of yet that means nothing to me.

And by the time the PS5 update drops, I will be finished with the game and it won’t matter.

Honestly can’t see the difference between PS5, Xbox X and PC. At this point it’s all about preference on what you want to play the game. But I guess the picture will be painted more clearly when the game is out and all the creators start their benchmarking.

I’m sure CD pRed will add huge depth but it’s looking like fundamentally a GTA type of game.
