As for me, if the next-gen consoles are already out by the time this game is out and I have one of the next-gen consoles, I will play it on one of those systems. That said, I have to choose the last choice since we just don't know when those will be available. What about you? Also, kind of on a side note, I didn't watch a whole lot of the latest gameplay footage, and although I am interested in the type of game this is and I love the setting, I am worried that the shooting won't be fun. I hope I am wrong.
What system do you plan on playing Cyberpunk 2077 on first?
PC, i only upgraded late last year so i'm all set.
I've noticed in all the gameplay they've shown that non of the active gameplay actually looks good, the shooting reminds me of Fallout 3 levels of functional and the driving physics look really bad.
I'm still expecting the game to be incredible, The Witcher 3 was uniquely phenominal and they've really put every effort and time into this so it would be silly to ignore, but everything that's been shown looks kinda not good.
Probably on my PS5 due to it most likely being close to their release, but it's kind of a weird thing where there won't be an actual PS5/XBX release of the game until next year. So the actual advantages of next gen won't be as much until the "enhanced" edition comes out. But CDPR is one of the few studios I will absolutely make sure I play their game asap.
Looks very much like a PC sort of game to me. Although all the demos they have shown so far have been using a controller it seems, I still think much like Deus Ex this is something I want to be using a mouse for.
Hopefully it's well optimized because my 1080 was the bees knees a few years back but now, once again, it's no longer the "throw any settings at me" kind of card anymore. Control really humbled me.
With all of the stuff happening in this game. I can't imagine the base consoles will be a good experience and the Pro/X might struggle as well. Next gen consoles should be OK, but frankly I don't want one, nor do I ever want to participate in Stadia.
EDIT: I could have sworn the original gameplay footage we saw of this thing was running in 4K with two 1080's... but that appears to not be the case according to this. If a 1080ti and an 8700K had to run the game at 1080p30, then I would suggest caution on pre-ordering if your current PC can't be considered "high end" in 2020, and I'd suggest not pre-ordering at all if you're planning on playing this on a base Xbox One. I'm just some asshole in an armchair making a few assumptions based on what I've seen, but I really have a hard time believing the base current consoles will be anything better than Far Cry 3 on a 360/PS3.
I'd also be willing to bet that more than a few people are going to be kinda angry when their $2500 machines can't max this game out at 4K120FPS because nobody makes video games that really push high end hardware anymore.
Currently running a EVGA 1050 dual fan, 8 GB DDR4, and an Intel 6600. Honestly want to try it on there for laughs. But once my lawsuit settlement comes in I'm planning to upgrade. Was gonna go amd a few months ago, but amazon decided I shouldn't. Which was the one silver lining to the whole debacle. As now I'm probably gonna wait until the next Gen stuff comes out and see how they compare. Will ether get the same. Thing for less because of price drops, or the new tech. I'm in that phase where I need to upgrade at the motherboard level. So that basicly means new everything.
Not sure...I just got a 2070 Super on my PC as a gift so it feels kinda wrong to go console, but I also don't think my CPU or RAM is up to snuff to max out the resolution or framerate and I don't plan on building a full new rig for a while. I might just wind up getting it for my One X so I don't get hung up on optimization and then buy it again for PC for a second playthrough when it goes on sale, like I did with Witcher 3.
I dunno... Money is tight, so I may get a PS5 on a monthly payment plan instead of upgrading my PC. I have a 1070/6700k combo, which I'm not sure will outperform or be able to run at superior settings relative to a next-gen console, especially this game. I'll wait for some gameplay comparisons, but I'm leaning next-gen.
As someone who hated the concept of a half step this past generation I avoided getting a Pro or upgraded Xbox. Financially it's always made more sense for me to only get one of the big consoles. I have an older PC as well so my console pretty much acts as my high end gaming machine. Due to the half step this last generation, there have been a slew of titles these last couple years I've had to ignore just did to how bad they play or how hot they make that base PS4 run. That said, I do have more than excess funds saved as I usually do come next generation, so on top of getting Cyberpunk on PS5, I'm looking forward to catching up on a few other titles base sucked with, like Control.
I don't even know why they are pretending Cyberpunk will be even remotely relevant on base consoles though. Pro and X sure, but base ass 8 year old fire boxes will melt from everything I've seen in this game lol.
Quite a few people here discounting their PCs. If it’s true that they’re capable of performing black magic to get this game running on some shit smartphone CPUs (meaning current gen) then there’s plenty of hope of this game being able to scale very well on PC.
I’m more concerned on how demanding the game will be on video cards, not CPU
I loved The Witcher 3, but it's the only CD Projekt Red game I've played, so I don't have this conceptualization of them as an indefatigable studio the same way I feel about Rockstar or Naughty Dog or Sony's internal studios of the PS4 generation. I'm excited for this game and it looks like it wants to be both massive and massively great, but everything I've seen leaves me with this uneasy feeling that it might only be massive in terms of scope. The voice acting and dialogue have all felt a little...generic, or something like it.
So I voted for a next-gen console, because I have every expectation this game might work best as a showcase for what the future of video games can be, or a compelling summary of what game design this past decade was and has exhausted itself of, rather than a wholly enduring experience on its own merits. As always I'd love to be proven wrong but I wouldn't be surprised if The Last of Us Part II is the last PS4 title I've purchased.
@nodima: I pretty sure a lot of people are not going to like the way Cyberpunk 2077 is written/acted.
Blade Runner noir is Cyberpunk to most not realizing the vulgar punk aspects of stuff like 2000AD and Judge Dredd, CD Project Red being big fans of the source material the recreation might be too much for some.
@thepanzini: As a British person of a certain age, 2000AD's brand of cheesy, brutal vulgarity is exactly what I want from the tone of this game honestly, although I'd not really considered that possibility until now. I'm not really familiar with the p&p game, is it similar in tone to something like Judge Dredd?
@spacegg: Sure I read somewhere that it won't be on Stadia at launch, not sure if that matters to you at all but just FYI in case you hadn't heard.
