Now I wonder how the word of mouth will go on this one since we know about the espcially rough landing on the base console version aka the one played by the most probably.

A thunderous opening because of pre-order but honestly ? I don't see it carry much momentum if it continues like that.

That's where most console sales are, but most sales overall for now are on PC where they should be. Going forward, it'll be PC and the next-gen console versions that'll be selling over time, and by the time it gets it's full next-gen release it'll be looking and running a whole lot better.



Paying it on Xbox One X since Midnight December 10th (will be playing it on PC afterwards), I've experienced all the bugs and issues most would've, and while that's definitely taken away from the experience at times, the game has managed to blow me away a lot more than it's issues have deflated me.

It's easy for some to come here and criticise releasing this game too early, in the state it's in, when you were never that invested in wanting to play it, and actually seem rather invested in wanting to see it fail for some reason. Having wanted to play this for a long time now, I'd take being able to play the game in it's current state any day, rather than having to see it delayed for another year, and innevitably released only for next-gen.



I remember Witcher 3 had a tough launch on consoles as well, didn't really stop people from enjoying it.

Have you considered there are many people invested in finally getting a good sci-fi RPG again, polished like Death Stranding yet with CDPR's quest design. Then to see it released in such a state with all the broken promises is a huge letdown.

I'm happy for you that it doesn't take away from your experience, however for those wanting to experience a polished bug free game, the element of playing a new game has been taken away. Sure the game will be fixed and get better, yet it will never feel new anymore with so much footage and talk around already.

Plus instead of having threads discussing the exciting things about Cyberpunk, the whole experience is currently shrouded in negativity for good reason. CDPR has really dropped the ball, even pitting gamers against each other, with the usual 'it runs fine for me, must be your hardware'

Thanks for being honest and not brushing the bugs and issues under the rug. I wish I wasn't so invested in sci-fi and rpgs, then I wouldn't care about the game. At least CDPR has a good track record to improve their games after release, but it won't feel new anymore. The investors are happy anyway.

Only they aren't, as the CDPR stock fell down over 30% this week.

That's a common practice sell to lower price then when it drops buy it back to profit when the price recovers and goes even higher due to the sales.

Even more common for the drop in stock price to happen in advance of the event, if the plan is to make bank on the recovery, not typically during or after. During or after is not a good sign in general.

It was dropping before the event.
