'Cyberpunk 2077' Crashing on Base PS4 as Players Joke About Graphics

Cyberpunk 2077 was released for consoles at 12 a.m. local time on December 10, but gamers playing on the base PS4 have encountered some early problems.

The CD Projekt Red game has been a long time coming, so fans were understandably looking forward to its release. However, early players of the game have experienced low-resolution graphics, crashes, freezes, bugs, and glitches, leading many to joke about their experience of Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 with memes on Twitter.

Gamers have taken to comparing the experience of playing on the older PS4 console to playing games from the 1990s, while others have compared the struggle to tough scenes from Marvel movies.

Twitter user TXA Smoove compared "A Base PS4 trying to play Cyberpunk" to Tony Stark dying in Avengers: Endgame.

Another Twitter user said: "Looks like my copy of Cyberpunk 2077 is running pretty poorly on a base PS4" and shared an image from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which was released in 2002.

These memes have other gamers concerned about playing the game themselves, like one Twitter user who said: "Me knowing I just wasted $60 on Cyberpunk for my base ps4 after seeing the memes," with an image of a sad Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory in the shower.

Bugs in Cyberpunk 2077 have included characters walking through walls and other characters, limbs separating from bodies, and disappearing vehicles.

These PS4 players are not the first to spot the glitches, however. Reviewers—who played the game on PC—have also commented on the bugs, with IGN's Tom Marks saying that they derail some of the game's enjoyment, and GameSpot's Kallie Plagge saying that sometimes she wasn't sure if a visual glitch was intentional or whether she was supposed to reload the game.

The team behind Cyberpunk 2077 seem to be aware of the problems, however, and tweeted: "We are truly humbled that so many of you trusted us and decided to support Cyberpunk 2077 before the release!

"Even 8 million thank yous isn't enough! The journey has just begun and we are hard at work on the upcoming fixes and updates to the game. See you in Night City!"
