"Cyberpunk 2077" has faced several issues in the past days because of its poor performance on older consoles, and now, Redditors shared that PS4 Discs have sticker labels that saying that it "Plays Better on PS5." The shade to its elder console is understandable but the game has been showing massive performance problems with overheating problems.
The most anticipated title of 2020 from CD Projekt Red, "Cyberpunk 2077," had a mixed reception since its initial release last week, December 10, for poor performance due to its overwhelming graphics. This aspect of the game follows up on the title's general theme, which focuses on futuristic plots and gameplays, which the current generation is not yet ready for.
According to Reddit's r/gaming community and user u/Epsil0nStar, game shelves that sell the year's most coveted game bore a sticker that says "Plays Better on PS5" despite the sleeve showing that it is for the PS4. The photo was posted just today, so there's no telling when CD Projekt Red or Sony have included the labels that throw shade for the PlayStation 4.
"Cyberpunk 2077" have recently faced the music, with CD Projekt Red pulling out the game for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, offering gamers a refund for the title. Both digital and physical releases of the games are subject to a refund in cash from its developers. The game has shown massive performance issues on the old gaming consoles as the developers have not foreseen this issue as it was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This event leaves PS5 and Xbox Series S and X as the only consoles to receive the game, which has no release dates yet.
