Cyberpunk 2077 has sold very well already, but those who play the game on their original PS4 and Xbox Ones have reported major issues with resolution, frame rate, popup and more. Several users via Twitch and social media document the game. On their old device, and the results are often not pretty. Perhaps the most notable comparison is the meme below (taken from Stream by GamekultLiveAbout 1:01:00):

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently a last-generation console game (although it benefits from new hardware improvements), and it was announced as such, but it was never shown in pre-release on the original PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

While Cyberpunk is not expected to make graphical compromises for operation on older console models, the level at which the accuracy drops has surprised and disappointed many.

Across both devices, users report long waits for loading textures, a blur effect across the entire screen, and a significant drop in frame rate. Bugs still prevailed as well, with players reporting non-playable T-characters, no mouth movement in conversations, and bug animations:

Widespread reports of crashes, especially on the PS4, were also circulating:

It’s unclear if all of the above examples work with the Day 1 patch installed – although some players (including Kotaku) They report apparently not being able to download it at all. However, our Xbox One base shots update to the Day One release, and it has moments where textures fail to load and frame rates drop (especially in the montage sequence near the end):While CD Projekt Red did not comment directly on the issues, a Cyberpunk Twitter account said today, “The journey has just begun and we are working hard on the upcoming fixes and updates for the game.”

CD Projekt Red has been known for providing multiple corrections for its latest open world game, The Witcher 3, which had its own set of bugs. It would be nice to see how much work could be done for console releases, especially when new generation versions are still in development.
