Cyberpunk 2077 has been fixed for last generation consoles according to the developers but has it really become playable?
No thank you. Fool me once!!!
LOL now all I can think of is that George dubya gaff! And I agree, they had their chance and they blew it. The world has moved on. Get on with your next damn game and BE BETTER.
I shelved this game after about 5 hours of playing right after I bought it day one. Not sure if or when I might go back to it.
Still not worth full price it's still unfinished. The fact that they came out and said the game is now at a satisfactory level means it was a joke all along
They discounted it on PSN, although I'm waiting for a PS5 patch. I still have it in shrink wrap after preordering it 3 years ago, that's how long this has taken. When it takes advantage of PS5 it will finally have enough bug fixes to be somewhat decent.
I'd wait at least a couple of months after the ps5 patch is out just to make sure they iron out any bugs/performance issues it will inevitably introduce. Just to be on the safe side.
Yeah that basically meant “yes we knew it wasn’t satisfactory when we released it, but we think it is now.” 😅
That it’s taken this long to reach satisfactory (not great) level is astonishing. They sold a game to consumers at full retail price that they knew full well was nowhere near finished. Tricking people into buying a half built broken product is the stuff of cowboy builders and rip off merchants. Hope the industry learns from this fiasco.
How did they trick people?
They said multiple times the game ran great on all platforms, even last Gen consoles. Also, a ton of stuff in the game was gutted out to make it run better on all platforms.
They never indicated that game wasn’t finished. Maybe if they had labelled the game as ‘early access’ this would have been acceptable. Having said that many early access games out there are in better shape than this was.
Simply releasing it on last gen was a trick knowing the install base was still massive and they would sell a ton of broken games
This is what would have happened if halo had released at launch.
Make another Witcher game and I'll forgive you 😁
They don't deserve your forgiveness
Did beat it on my RTX 2060 and feel bad for last generation players. Game is awesome when it runs as intended. I really recommend Playstation 5 owners to wait for the next-gen patch that comes out this latter half of the year.
Don't get me wrong I can't wait for the ps5 patch, but as of right now the game is running pretty good on ps5. Currently playing through it now for the first time.
It looks better, but it's still a half finished jumble of concepts that never made it to the full game. Plays in exactly the same, empty and mechanic starved world as the console versions. It never did run as intended, if you look at Night City Wire promises.
Half finished? It's common that you cut out finished parts because it doesn't add to the overall experience. Games usually go through different revisions before they get a ok where they start to bug test the final product. Calling the world empty is a real hyperbole considering it has one of the more dense details in an open world game. Play the game with ray tracing with ultra settings and it's like night and day with the console versions. You're just spreading false hate because you don't like the game.
No, I've played it on PS4, PS5 and PC, and the world is devoid of just about anything to do but shoot people. The hacking is half arsed and pretty boring. There are no gang warfare mechanics. Stealth is terrible and ultimately pointless. No real interactions with people outside of missions and stories. Side content is handed out stupidly by comms instead of visiting handlers. No mini games. Promised a Gwent level pastime that never appeared. Brain dances kept to missions despite being able to buy some for no reason. Useless upgrade and food items that offer nothing unique. Terrible AI all round. No difference in the lifestyle paths aoart from the first 20 minutes to an hour. No customisation... The mission structure is fine, the characters are mostly good, but it's not that engaging outside of a short runthrough of the main campaign. False hate, no. I was always a fan of CDPR... This game was half baked and promised much, much more than we got.
"No, I've played it on PS4, PS5 and PC, and the world is devoid of just about anything to do but shoot people. The hacking is half arsed and pretty boring. There are no gang warfare mechanics.

Game is not shit because you wanted the next Grand Theft Auto, man XD Game is still an action-rpg like The Witcher series. They never promoted it like the next Rockstar open world. It's quite laughable how these young millennials still thinks that their own expectations is the common truth. This is just your personal opinion which does not really reflect the end product of what they wanted you to experience. So it's not CD Project Red's problem that you expected a game they never intended to make yo. "The mission structure is fine, the characters are mostly good, but it's not that engaging outside of a short runthrough of the main campaign." Maybe, maybe not. It's the similar quality that you expected if you played the previous games from them like TW3.
Millenial? I'm gen Z thanks, and I know what was promised. I never expected GTA... I watched all their development diaries, the Night City Wires, and read interviews with the team. They said themselves that it would be much more than what they presented to the public. It wasn't expectation based on wanting it to be like anything else, it was expectation based on what CDPR told us it would be. You just sound like a shill at this point, even trying to drop me into a category that doesn't fit to try and sully my opinion. I've been playing games for 36 years... I know what a good game is. Cyberpunk was a broken, underpromised game with a good story. That's it.
"It wasn't expectation based on wanting it to be like anything else, it was expectation based on what CDPR told us it would be" Oh, so what did they promise according to you then? Please point out where they promised: * gangware mechanics? * Real interaction with people outside of mission and stories (please do explain what that even means more than your arbitrary opinion) * "Side content is handed out stupidly by comms instead of visiting handlers" in what why is this bad and since when did this become a norm to judge by? * "No mini games" still your subjective opinion * "Promised a Gwent level pastime that never appeared" I can give you this one. * "Brain dances kept to missions despite being able to buy some for no reason" This sentence doesn't even make sense. * "Useless upgrade and food items that offer nothing unique" Still your subjective opinion * "Terrible AI all round" Please name any game that has great AI and I will disprove you with the same lame argument you are coming with. Bitching like a little girl doesn't help you. * "No difference in the lifestyle paths aoart from the first 20 minutes to an hour." Please link where CD Project Red promised that the game would have 3 different story lines based on which you choose in the beginning. Like I said before. It's half retarded that we should based any argument on your subjected expectations when the devs never promised any of it. THIS.IS.NOT.ROCKSTAR Please provide links to any of your claims with timestamps or quotes with links with any of your claims! Thanks. Edit* And why do you play a game on 3 different platforms if you dislike it so much? That doesn't even make a logical sense at all.
It was a one and done for me. Enjoyed it for the most part, was a bit irked by being Watchdogged, but my experience wasn’t unplayable. A damn shame CDPR has stained their reputation. Let this be a lesson to developers and publishers.
I played Watchdogs on PS3 Wii U and PS4. And Cyberpunk 2077 is a far worse product it have almost zero polish at launch. At least WD run decent even on last gen and not fundamentally broken. I probably try 2077 when it less than $10
Sorry, what I meant by “Watchdogged” was how we were all led to believe how a game would look and play when it was first announced only to be No Man Sky’d at launch, basically. It wasn’t a comparison of the retail games, but kinda like how Aliens Colonial Marines was shown at E3 and then what we ended up getting was waaaay watered down and quite a let down.
I just can't understand why the released it. Who tested the game Stevie Wonder?
I have to say, I’m thoroughly enjoying it on PS5.
When the next-gen version is out then I’ll play 👍🏻
It doesn't crash, for me, but there are so many other issues that plague the base console of the game.
"...purely technical level Cyberpunk 2077 is now passable..." This is wildly unhelpful nor is it useful information. On a technical level, just to name 4 major things in the first 2 hours of play: The initial load screens are black (the load screens haven't even been fixed). V's body gets mirrored in the inventory screen. Entire sections of neighborhoods do not load, try rolling up to clouds and get met with a giant grey wall. When you walk in the Coyote Cojo (during the ofrenda mission) it is just one block of white light, you can barely find the door to exit the mission. Lastly, the streaming: everything sparkles like a broken Christmas tree. None of this is passable, it's worse than Bethesda and I have a sweet spot for good ol' Zeni games.
Its always ran pretty smooth on ps5, but even when it does there are serious flaws with the game. The shoddy enemy ai, the terrible wanted system, the lack of traffic, how crazy easy it is. With or without bugs the game for me personally is a huge disappointment. My biggest concern at this point is that at least one of these problems will never be addressed
Not to mention that the story can’t be patched and that is the weakest part of the game for me.
Got it for $20 still haven’t played it probably won’t until the next gen patches come along and hopefully no other good games come out around that time ie Battlefield 2042 because I’m sure that will dominate most of my free time
Absolutely love the game. I play on PC and have hundreds of hours in. One of the best games I've played in years. Didn't play the game originally, because of the smear campaign. I thought: "There's no way there would be this response unless it was actually REALLY bad.", so I ignored the game until a few months ago when I bought it for $20. If it was bad, only 20 bucks, right? So glad I didn't listen to all of the hate. The game world is the most engrossing and detailed game world I've ever seen. There is so much stuff in the game that it doesn't even feel like an open world game. The characters are fantastic, and memorable. I mean, the scene where you're sitting around the fire with Panam and company, talking war stories and drinking beer. It's hard to describe, but you don't often experience things like this in games. I guess the last gen versions were pretty bad with bugs and performance? I've never played it, and the fact that it is bad had zero impact on my enjoyment on PC. Recently IGN did a poll on youtube, they asked how many people would go back to the game now that they claim it is improved. Something like 50% said "Nope, never played it, won't play it." This should tell you everything you need to know about the response to this game. If you're on the fence, give it a try on PC or PS5, can't speak for other platforms, but these are just fine and the game is phenomenal.
I have a bridge to sell you might be interested in.
So...I was scammed? I haven't actually thoroughly enjoyed the game? It's all in my imagination? All of the negativity about the game is nonsense like this. No one every actually points to any specific complaint or problem, it's always just: "Lulz, it's a broken, unplayable mess!" And it's not, objectively speaking. It may be on last gen consoles, but as I've said, I haven't played those, so I don't care. If this is true, yeah, they probably shouldn't have released it on last gen. But again, this has no impact on my experience with the game. I think it's quite telling that many of the responses I get resemble your reply, they're always vague and unspecific, as if they've never actually played the game. But hey, if that bandwagon makes you happy, keep riding it friend. Me on the other hand, I'll take a fantastic game that I've enjoyed for countless hours, and while it's unfortunate for the developers (which by the way, had nothing to do with the alleged botched last gen release, but sure, punish them anyway), I got it for a mere 20 bucks because of people like you, so thanks? I guess. The idea that generic cut and paste games like Outriders or AC:Valhalla are considered "quality games", but this isn't is just laughable. So sure, if your "bridge" is actually a brilliantly written, artistic and technical showpiece, that has bugs and performance issues on last gen consoles, but is brilliant on PC and current gen, that I can get for 20 bucks due to an astroturfed smear campaign, then tell me where to sign up.
yea, this game is good, but some young millenials have hijacked this and tries to force project their own opinion on others well before they even played the game. It was the same with Abby for TLOU2 where people spoiled the game well before it was out and where just hateful human beings. Which goes hand in hand with the current generation of curled people.
The only real hate I've read in these comments has been coming from your lips
Let just finish with this there will be always people defend bad games, just how people still defend Fina Fantasy XIII, although it is the worst numbered FF since FFII. People still defend Skyrim although it is the worst "RPG" and so generic and nothing about it is RPG. People still glorify Metal Gear Solid 5, despite the fact it is very bland. People still defend Ubisoft although they delivers the exact same games over and over again with the same gameplay and the same quests. So, CyperPunk 2077 isn't special here, although it is not what it been advertised as. People with low standard ruins the industry, they supported MTs, they supported EA and activision annual releases, they supported DRM, they supported GAAS, they supported DLCs. They supported the practice of releasing unfinished games that needs tons of patches and huge gb updates. So yeah "controversial".
Nope. I’m waiting for a native ps5 upgrade and it better be free.
Haha no thanks. Not giving this turd another chance.
"Fixed" is still unable to maintain 30fps. That's as fixed as it will ever get I suppose. They never should have put it out on those old consoles clearly. Funny since they said before it launched it was fine. Now 7 months later it's "satisfactory" :D
Cyberjunk has all ready ran its course with me I got tired of waiting for patches and when patches came out they fixed some parts and opened up new bugs. Too many other games coming out and getting announced even if Cyberjunk was given a steep discount to around $20 I still won't touch it. And coming out and saying the game is satisfactory doesn't really seem to help build that consumer confidence in the product if anything it makes the customer shy away.
The true goat! This is what that horrible GTA series wishes it could be like!
Honestly the game wasn't very fun or interesting even outside the bugs. Thanks but no thanks from me.
Quite enjoyed it, myself. Had no major issues on base PS4. Looking forward to replaying on PS5
Sorry but you're not allowed to enjoy this game apparently 😅
Too late. I've got other worthy games I'm currently attending to. By the time I'm done with my backlog CP2077 will be on ps+. Win win situation.
It's definitely not ready yet. They are just claiming its "acceptable". They called it acceptable when they shipped it, completely broken.
It’s going to have to catch me on a 75% off sale which is crazy. I preordered and bought the $100 or more bundle. Got a refund and now I won’t buy the PS5 VER until it’s sub $30 and that’s IF I have nothing else to play. I am mentally past this game.
I can't speak for the Playstation consoles since I did not get it for my PS4. I bought it for my XBOX1X and the game after all the patches is definitely how it should of been at launch. It's still not perfect but all game breaking bugs seem to be gone. I experienced a ton of them and after the last update it fixed all the game breaking issues and most of the other annoying issues. There are still issues that remain but it's not a ton of them and it doesn't hamper the game. Shame they didn't fix those yet. If you have not bought the game, and have one of the new consoles, buy a used copy for 20 bucks. I wouldn't recommend buying this game new and full price on any console. If you have an XBOX1X it's not bad technically and worth a play thru because there is a good game in there. It's not directed well but very ambitious in what it does. Don't waste your time on the base consoles. The game should never have been launched on them
I’m still waiting for the promised “next gen” versions to release and then I’ll decide.
I'll wait for the 2022 ps5 version.
No. Because "satisfactory" isn't good enough
I think the performance on older consoles is pretty acceptable now, issues being the rest of the game feels really unfinished still.
I've not bothered to load it up yet on pro but from the headline it's fixed so the biker gangs can ride bikes now ? Great if so but if not may as well remove this non story
It's alright. Like 7/10...maybe 6/10. Still a crushing disappointment.
Oh... I am not trust this guys.
I'll be ready when the PS5 version is out. If of course it's at a (mostly) big free level
Even if they got rid of ALL bugs, I would still be disappointed with what we got
The best RPG of the century?
I hope that's a joke, you have 100 years worth of RPGs to select the best one and you chose this? Cyberpunk isn't even the best RPG in the last decade. As others have said, the game is just half baked, even without the bugs
I started it on my XOX and only ran into minor performance issues, nothing game breaking. The problem I had was mostly the things that have already been mentioned. At the end of the day, I just found it boring. I'll probably go back to it some day, it really wasn't terrible, but I just couldn't get into the story, and that was really the whole point. I can forgive some of the promised mechanics being missing or just taken out, as somebody already said, it is a natural part of development. It just seems "half-baked". Hopefully it'll end up being one of those games I fire up on a rainy Sunday and "rediscover" and really get into. I'm really not counting on that happening though.
Snippet from the article title 'Cyberpunk 2077 has been fixed for last generation consoles.' - So you play it on a PS5? Never mind. Seriously though, are some of you guys really suggesting that because it released in a poor state you aren't now going to play it? If that's the case, and you apply the same logic to all big games that release in a less than stellar condition, then your AAA game collection must be pretty small. Personally, I'm waiting for next gen patch to play this in order to get the best from this game. However, what I have tried so far was pretty okay on an series X. Base consoles were never going to run such an ambitious title satisfactorily c'mon that was obvious to everyone other than CD Project.
Yeah but it was originally planned for PS3 / 360. Imagine I'd it released for those consoles.
