Cyberpunk 2077 On PS4 and Xbox One refers to a series of memes about Cyberpunk 2077’s poor performance on last-gen consoles, including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Upon the game’s release in mid-December 2020, players on these consoles noted a drastically worse experience with Cyberpunk’s rendering, graphics quality, framerate and overall performance compared to PCs and next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game’s anticipated release led to these console players debating online over CDPR’s decision to include support for older video game systems, as well as memes mocking the graphics or poking fun at those who lacked high-end systems.


On December 10th, 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 released worldwide with reviewers getting an early start the day before, though reports from reviewers stated they could only show footage provided by CD Projekt Red and no footage of their own.[1] Additionally, footage for these reviews only included PC platforms and not consoles, such as the PS4 or XB1.

Upon release, players on last-gen consoles began noticing the game’s poor performance, which included graphical issues such as pop-in, low framerates and other disappointing gameplay. The earliest memes mocking such performance on PS4 or XB1 began appearing the day of launch. One such example was posted by PCMag’s Instagram[2] account on December 10th, comparing the game alongside images of Baby Yoda. The meme (shown below), received over 7,500 likes in 11 days.

XBOX ONE/ PS 4 REVIEW LybeizpiNK ERFUNK 2 07 7 BAD Cyberpunk 2077 on a base PS4 or Xbox One fails to hit even the lowest bar of technical quality one should expect, even when playing on lower-end hardware. It performs so poorly that it makes combat, driving, and what is otherwise a master craft of storytelling legitimately difficult to look at. 4
