Cyberpunk 2077 Runs Very Poorly On Base Xbox One, Suggest Reports

The day has arrived! Cyberpunk 2077 is now officially available around the world, but unfortunately some early reports have suggested the game is having a tough time coping on base Xbox One and PS4 consoles.

We've seen loads of messages from disgruntled fans on social media about these versions, and the likes of Eurogamer, Kotaku and Polygon have all suggested that the game is running very poorly on these consoles as well.

Here's a bit of what Kotaku had to say about the base Xbox One version:

"The game ran without any hitches and looked great on the [Xbox Series S], despite being the less powerful of Microsoft’s two new consoles. It has been another story entirely on Xbox One.

There I’ve had framerate drops, UI and texture pop-in, and an overall layer of fuzzy lighting and jagged reflections that made it hard not to feel like I was playing a PS3 or 360 game, or at least a modern one on ultra low graphics settings."

Digital Foundry's Tom Morgan also provided some very brief analysis of the PlayStation 4 version for Eurogamer, explaining that the game "looks very blurry, running between 720p and 900p resolution", complete with major framerate drops and hitching, where there are "big hiccups in the action".

Basically then, it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is really struggling to perform well on the base current-gen consoles at launch, so if you're planning to play this way, you might want to brace yourself ahead of time.
