Jon's early impressions. Full feature coming later.

"they massively undersold the visuals in the pre-release media"
"the amount of stuff going on in this game is just unbelievable"
"it is the most visually dense, impressively lit, open world city I've ever seen"

Boi is on top..



1 mil concurrent users for a DRM free, single player RPG :eek:

Pre-load was 57GB and another 3GB update was added (day 1 patch?). Played 4 hours and didn't experience any bug so far.

Everything feels solid, from the driving to the gunplay. Encounters are frenetic and hacking is integrated well into the combat loop.

It's also kinda crazy that the best first person perspective implemented in a game comes from a developer who stepped out of their 'comfort zone'. The gameplay driven dialogue system feels so seamless and natural, backed by top tier animation work and voice acting. Incredible.

As for Night City, the most densely detailed and rich game world ever created. Simply jaw dropping.

Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One seems to have major problems


Crashes, pop-in, and more



CD Projekt Red’s highly-anticipated open world RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, is now out in the hands of the public — and players are logging in to find an extremely unoptimized experience on last generation consoles.

Clips showcasing glitches, frame rate issues, major pop in and more have started going viral on social media, though it’s unclear if these all these Cyberpunk players are trying the game with the day zero patch. After all, some fans found ways to play the game early through methods like changing their consoles’ time zone. Developers CD Projekt Red say that, if you preloaded the game beforehand, then what you boot up from the get go already has the day one patch. As the launch night unfolds, more footage has emerged reiterating the same types of problems.

Polygon watched a couple of dozen livestreams showcasing base PS4 and Xbox One gameplay, along with the beefier versions of each console, and we saw a number of crashes, choppy gameplay, freezes, strangely geometric NPCs, and more. While some of what’s most visible on social around right now showcases fans who aren’t playing with the day one patch, technical hiccups of some variety or other seem pervasive on all versions of the older consoles based on what we’ve seen on platforms like Twitch and YouTube Live. Reports on forums like Reddit further corroborate the existence of last gen woes.

Fans who are trying the game on PC, meanwhile — especially top-of-the-line rigs — seem to be faring okay, based on what we could see on livestreams. At least, compared to the older generation of consoles. There are reports of trees and bushes appearing clipping through things on PC, but it seems that updating your drivers will take care of the issue. But there are still fans who say that, even on PC, things aren’t always running smoothly.


Early reviewers, it’s worth noting, were all provided PC code of the game. While some reviewers found glitches, most reports did not note anything on the level of what’s being shared on social media right now. During one Xbox One stream, Polygon saw a player complain because a car appeared out of nowhere, causing them to crash. Another player Xbox One had to restart their game after trying to fast forward through dialogue — something that happened more than once during the broadcast. The game seems to struggle the most when running during open-world segments.

All this said, not all glitches that fans are experiencing right now are game-breaking. Curiously, some fans are finding that the infamous penis models sometimes clip through your character’s clothes. (NSFW warning on that link!)

Still, problem is big enough that, in short order, the gaming community has turned it all into a meme. The format has fans upload images of PS1, PS2, or N64 games with the strong viral language used to criticize the console version of Cyberpunk. Rather than despairing, some players have decided to embrace the dark humor of trying to run a new game on a 7-year-old console.






CD Projekt Red did not respond in time for publication. Prior to release, the studio was reported to have undergone extensive crunch time, even after repeatedly promising that it would not force its workers to do so.

Using TLoU as an example, one of the most visually impressive games with cutting edge tech which won numerous "best tech" awards in 2013 on the PS3, the same year a new generation of hardware launched, to try and correlate to this.


TLoU (or even Arkham Origins) didn't have PS2 visuals, 15 FPS game play performance and glitches the caliber of Fallout 76 at launch.

Na fam, that ain't it. 😂

Just put this on download on steam, not sure what to expect though xD i've read mixed reviews about this but being optimistic fingers crossed...
Depends on your specs, you may be able to power through bad performance but glitches may still be there. Reading from a lot of people that the system requirements CDPR put out are not indicative of in-game performance at all.

And god forbid if you have any of the base consoles (or even a One X, the strongest 'current' gen console).

I've got an

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 ~3.6ghz
16 GB ram
and gtx1660

So far played everything on this system while cranking every game to its highest RE3, Death Stranding etc... nothing less than the highest most settings xD so i am expecting a decent performance at least 60 FPS on 1080p xD but by what i am coming across on the internet it seems the problem isnt with the specs meeting the requirements or not, its related entirely to how the game works and i've seen some pretty horrible examples xD

I wonder if this is gona be the same case as the witcher 3..
