Immediately after the release of the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077, a huge number of complaints from gamers fell on the developers of CD Projekt RED. Players complained about the instability of the game; as well as much more crappy graphics than what the Polish developers had promised.
The console version of the game suffered the most. Angry comments from people who bought the game were actively circulating on the Web; in which it was said that the game was, in fact, unplayable on the PS4, Xbox One and One S.
Frustrated gamers demanded that CD Projekt RED completely re-make the game; so that the graphics at least slightly match the PC version in terms of graphics; and many also expect fewer noticeable bugs.
And today, in response to high-profile claims from PS4 users, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation store and offers a full refund to those who purchased the game through the online store.
SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, and we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store and want a refund. Please visit the following link to initiate the refund: https://t.co/DEZlC0LmUG.

“SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction; and we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PS Store and want a refund.”
CD Projekt RED continues to apologize for the state of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and promises to fix bugs and glitches and improve the overall experience early next year.
Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 and Xbox One is a complete failure
The french gaming magazine Jeuxvideo.com has published the first review of the console version of the fantastic RPG Cyberpunk 2077 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game consoles.
Judging by the previous reviews of the first players, the console version looks terrible in terms of technical performance; it will be very problematic to enjoy the process. The magazine gave this version 3.5 points out of 10 possible (more precisely, 7/20). And the readers rated the game much lower (3.1/20).

Cyberpunk 2077 remains relatively playable in only a few scenes, with minor glitches here and there, but exploring the open world is often difficult and completely unplayable. Textures are not displayed or are blurry, low resolution, brakes, freezes, interface lag, numerous bugs. These versions are clear proof that the game was not meant to be anything other than a game for next-generation platforms.

Reviews of gamers have begun to publish a video and screenshots showing all the “delights” of Cyberpunk 2077 for PS4 and Xbox One. Some players are demanding a refund for the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077; while others believe that the editions of the game for the PS4 and XOne should have been canceled altogether.
At the same time, the developers reported that the initial sales of the computer version of Cyberpunk 2077 on the very first day approached the 5 million mark. We hope that the performance of the game will be different on the new generation game consoles.
