Should've just not fucking bothered with last gen at all honestly.

Completely true from a game production standpoint, but utterly impossible from an investor/financial one. They would've had to either never announce it on consoles in the first place, cutting off a majority of players, or cancelled the PS4/XBOne versions at the last minute, voiding millions of $$$ in pre-orders and again slashing sales projections, which on a game of this scale never would've flown. It's just not possible to make a game of this scale and release it PC/niche next-gen only, especially when you started on it like 5 years ago.

Of course arguably, what they did was *worse*, but hey, that's capitalism.

Bearing in mind microsoft had already released a tie-in special edition xbox one x months prior to release as the flagship console to play it on[1] the idea of a last-minute cancellation just wasn't something that could've happened without some catastrophic bridge burning on their part. Of course they managed to do that anyway but they'd definitely made their bed by that point.
 1. this was before the final delay or two back when next-gen would not have been an option.

Cyberpunk was announced in 2012, a year before the PS4 was released so I'm not sure how you can call that last gen really. They haven't even made a PS5 version, it's just the PS4 one people are playing on their newer console. Had the game not been repeatedly delayed, it'd would have come out before the 'next gen' consoles anyway.

Years of cool videos and teasers and stuff, and they never said 'by the way this won't run on currently available consoles' they even said just before release that it ran 'surprisingly well' on the PS4.

Plus no cunt can find a PS5. And sounds like the PC version is far from perfect anyway.

The thing is they had to have been designing it with PS4/XBone in mind until very recently, so the mindfuck of them ballsing up the now-last-gen versions is... baffling, really.

Spot on. They’ve massively fucked this up.

Can one run around naked, or was that hype?

They can fix as many bugs as they want and improve performance as much as they want, the game just wasn't very good.

I enjoyed the game. On the PC there weren’t too many bugs, but the ridiculous PR hype made a fairly standard, if good looking, game have no chance. Some of the side missions were very good.
