Anyone playing/played this on console yet?

 

Heard bad things about the console experience but good things about the game.

 

Just wait for it to be completed. This game will be better once the official next gen versions are out. Until then I wouldn't bother. It's still a good game but may as well wait for a great game.

Depends on the console

 

Basic PS4/Xbox One - sounds like an absolute nightmare and should not bother playing it

 

PS4 Pro/One X - sounds like you can just about get away with it, but will likely still experience some bugs/crashes of some kind

 

PS5/Xbox Series X - I personally played and finished the game on PS5 from release day and the only main issue I really had was the game crashing every so often and 1 bug which meant I couldn't do a side mission (which was easy enough to get around in the end) and I believe they have pretty much sorted the crashing issue now meaning the game is very playably on next gen

 

Still absolutely loved the game and plenty to keep you going (took me about 50 years to do 1 play through with plenty of side missions still left to finish)

 

If you have a next gen console and really want to play, I would personally say go for it

 

If you are happy enough to wait then might as well wait until they properly polish it off with patches in the next 6 months to 1 year

Final thoughts on the game: all in all it's a good game, I enjoyed the ride and the story, got a good amount of entertainment for my money but I also see a wasted potential.
 
For me there's very little replay value because the story is set in stone, your background doesn't matter and the outcome of your extremely self-centered journey is decided in the very last moments of the game, when everything is said and done. V's evolution as a character isn't determined by the player but is already set by the script. You just go along with the flow and your actions have a very little impact on those around you.
 
The criminal lack of interactivity with the otherwise beautiful city, the painfully obvious cut contents, the cardboard cut NPCs, and the absence of factions or dynamic events only reinforce the impression that you just don't belong in Night City and it only serves as a temporary background (as postal card) for your quest to get rid of Johnny Silverhand. I've had more fun wandering in a much, much smaller city in Kamurocho's Yakuza 0 than in the gigantic Night City. Games like Fallout, the Elder Scrolls or Assassins Creed for all their flaws let you immerse yourself in the world without even bothering with the main quest.
 
I already knew it was never to going to live to the insane hype it's been surrounded but it's still a far cry from CDPR's own Witcher.

Don't think it's so much that they have stolen the source code, that is the biggest issue. 

 

But depending on what information they have stolen when it comes to 'accounting, admin, legal, HR, investor relations and more'. That could lead to a massive GPDR risk, which could cost them hugely and set the company back further than Cyberpunk did.

So what's the threat exactly, that the hackers release under-developed buggy CD Projekt software early..?  Not sure that's an issue for them.

 

It's more to do with the personal details of the developers, IMO. 

 

We know the internet is an absolute cesspit when it comes to "Gamers". Nothing is beyond them when they somehow feel they've been collectively wronged. Who knows what they'll do with the info.

Using a PS4 pro and since the last update/fix I've had no issues whatsoever throughout 15hrs of game time. 

 

Started playing this in December and I'm still not even halfway through Act 2 and still with ample side quests and gigs remaining. 

 

My disappointment surrounds the utterly forgettable soundtrack, which is quite frankly dreadful; the crude and awkward crafting system and the level cap which has implications for any future Game Plus roll out or DLC. Given the host of problems associated with and cursing this project and surrounding CD Projekt Red right now, I can't see that either are forthcoming or imminent. 

 

Oh yeah - the contrived sex scenes are both hilarious and cringeworthy and ostensibly conceived by some spotty virginal intern/games development undergrad via a sophomore subscription to porn hub.
