Fans took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with Cyberpunk 2077

CDPR showcased amazing gameplay features on their YouTube channel, that promised outstanding performance across all platforms, including PS4 and Xbox One. This promise failed miserably for the owners of the consoles, as they took to Twitter to express their disappointment with the game.

Cyberpunk vice city is being put forward as a classic meme in many tweets by people who are clearly dissatisfied with the lack of optimization. Their frustration is understandable.

In Cyberpunk’s defense, PS4 is almost 7 years old. The game always poised to be a next-gen game that would change the course of gaming industry.

Cyberpunk and doom crossover would have been nice if they actually did it. Instead, that amazing idea is being used as a meme.

The curse of 2020 continues to haunt us all and fans cannot comprehend it. The foreshadowing of what this year will be was told in the beginning.

Glitches are probably the worst, especially when they ruin your experience with the most awaited game of our generation.

Final thoughts

The game is not working at the best as it was originally displayed, glitches and lag along with irregular crashes are spoiling players’ experience with the game. This has been a consistent problem for fans that own one of those previous-gen consoles. It is safe to assume that CDPR has already heard the community’s cry, and they must be already working on a hot fix for all the performances related issues.

In other news, Cyberpunk is working on a full-fledged upgrade for the next-gen consoles that is going to release in 2021. The game is set to receive much-needed performance and visual boosts that would enable gamers to experience the world of ‘Night City’ in a different light. The upgrade will promise 120 frames at the maxed out graphics taking full advantage presented by the next-gen hardware.

The developers shared their thoughts about offering the next-gen upgrades for free.

Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades. Owners of #Cyberpunk2077 for Xbox One will receive the Xbox Series X upgrade for free when available.
