Despite all the controversy surrounding Cyberpunk 2077‘s bug-laden, incomplete release state, which became so glaring that it led to developer CD Projekt Red issuing apologies for the game’s performance and Sony actually pulling the game from the PS Store for six straight months — CDPR has been hard at work with patches and updates and trying to get the game back on track, especially on base consoles, to what they consider a “satisfying level.”
Although it was only reinstated to the PS Store late last month on June 21st, Cyberpunk 2077 was the best-selling PS4 game on the PS Store in June in the US/Canada and Europe, managing to pull off the feat after being on sale for little more than a week. As stated previously, Cyberpunk 2077 had been unavailable for sale on the PS Store since it was pulled on December 17th, 2020.
On a similar note, the refunds policy for Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox was also recently reverted on July 6th, meaning Microsoft is no longer issuing special refunds for the game. Despite these refund policies being reverted to normal, players hoping to play Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 and Xbox One base consoles should still purchase the game at their own discretion. Despite being reinstated to the PS Store, Sony still issues a warning on the Cyberpunk 2077 listing which states purchasing the game for base PS4 consoles is “not recommended.” The full warning reads: “Users continue to experience performance issues with this game. Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended. For the best Cyberpunk experience on PlayStation, play on PS4 Pro and PS5 systems.”
What do you think of the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 was the best-selling PS4 game on the PS Store in June after being removed for 6 months, outselling such games as NBA 2K21, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Minecraft and MLB The Show 21? Let us know in the comments.
