Cyberpunk 2077 running on a base PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is what everyone wanted to see in the lead up to the gigantic RPG's release, and now that the day is here, boy have the floodgates opened. While we did encounter some of these issues in our own analysis of CD Projekt Red's latest title on a PS4, social media has been documenting some truly nightmarish clips of terrible performance on last-gen systems as well as lots and lots of bugs and glitches. It's a sorry sight for one of the year's most anticipated games, but be sure to check out the results of our own investigation into the base PS4 version. We didn't find it to be quite so bad.
Over on Eurogamer, screenshots from what we presume is an upcoming Digital Foundry analysis have been shared showing the PS4 version running at 30 frames-per-second, but then also at 22, 17, and even 15. There is absolutely no denying it — that's pretty atrocious. You can start to get an idea of what that looks like in the following Twitter clips.
And then there are the memes, which were always going to happen. This is the internet, so these will obviously be run into the ground before too long. Still, they're pretty funny as Cyberpunk 2077 hits store shelves.
Have you encountered these issues yourself or suffering from generally poor performance on a base PS4, or maybe even PS4 Pro? Please post your findings in the comments below.
