Cyberpunk 2077: Sony Issuing Refunds For PS4 and PS5 Players

After 8 years of development Cyberpunk 2077 finally launched earlier this week.

But the release hasn't been as smooth as CD Projekt Red would have liked.

Disappointing Performance

As is expected with any new open world RPG, there are many issues and glitches that players are experiencing while playing the game.

This ranges from the game just freezing, to objects not loading in, to NPCs just T-posing.

It is being reported that the game barely runs at 720p and often drops down to 15fps, something that shouldn't be seen in any game, especially not one from a premiere studio like CD Projekt Red.

I actually experienced an issue earlier while playing where I finished a hack and once it was complete V just stood there still connected to the wall and I had to restart, thankfully I only lost about 10 minutes of playtime.

However, I am playing on PC where things are a little bit better than on console.

Performance on console, especially the base PS4 and Xbox One, has been pretty terrible.

Players have experienced many game breaking situations and issues and many have had enough.


After many disappointing hours of playing, gamers have had enough and asked Sony for a refund, and they have been granting them too.

Sony has no set return policy so a refund is not guaranteed, but if you are disappointed with the experience then it is worth a shot.

Just uninstall the game and plead your case to Sony and see if they accept it.

It might be best to just wait for the next gen version before jumping back in.

It says a lot when Google Stadia is performing better than any console version.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be available at launch on:

  • PC via GOG, Epic Games Store, and Steam
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Google Stadia

What About PS5 & Xbox Series X|S?

CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the game will be coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

However, this won't be at launch and will instead be released hopefully sometime in 2021.

After 8 years of development, players will soon be able to explore Night City.

The good news is, due to both consoles' backwards compatibility, Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on both next gen consoles at launch.

But, players will be using the PS4/Xbox One version of the game, meaning they won't get any of the improved graphics, ray tracing etc.
