Cyberpunk 2077 has major issues with the base PS4 and Xbox One units

Cyberpunk 2077 has major issues with the base PS4 and Xbox One units
Cyberpunk 2077 is already selling well, but those who play the game on their original PS4s and Xbox One are reporting major issues with resolution, frame rate, format pop-in and more. Many users on Twitch and social media are documenting the game’s performance on their older machines, and the results are often not pretty. Perhaps the most important comparison is taken from the contest (stream below) GameCult Live, At 1:01:00 mark):

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently the last-gen game on the console (benefiting from new-gen hardware upgrades), and so advertised, but never pre-released on the original PS4 and Xbox One units.

While it is not unexpected that cyberpunk graphical compromises to be implemented on older console models, the declining level of reliability has surprised and disappointed many.

On both consoles, users report a longer wait for textures to load, with a blurry effect across the entire screen and a decrease in the main frame rate. Bugs are also prevalent, with players reporting t-posing NPCs, lacking word of mouth in conversations and glitching animations:

Extensive reports of crashes, especially on the PS4:

It is unclear if all of the above examples have a Day One patch installed – although some players (including To the castle) Report that they do not appear to be able to download it. However, our own base has been updated to the Xbox One footage Day One version and instances where textures fail to load and frame rates drop (especially at the end of the montage sequence):While CD Project Red did not comment directly on these issues, the cyberpunk Twitter account said today that “the journey has begun and we are working hard on upcoming fixes and updates related to the game”.

CD Project Red provided multiple patches for its last Open World game, The Witcher 3, which had its own flaws. It will be fascinating to see how much work can be done for console versions, especially the new-gen versions still in development.
