    They're the fourth highest valued company on the Warsaw Stock Exchange right now, and have been for a while, so yeah, they're sort of big time.

    I'm glad a lot of people are enjoying it! I was looking forward to it, but just couldn't get into it. I know RPGs traditionally have a lot of dialog, but Cyberpunk seems to be 90/10 in favor of dialog over action. It was just way too slow for me. Maybe I lost my patience with age, who knows.

    I don't have any complaints. So far I liked the game but I played only 2hours on launch day. I was busy yesterday turning my 6800XT into watercooling. :D

    It would have been nice if they had Raytracing working for 6800 series from beginning but I guess their hands were full optimising and fixing other stuff. Besides it is Nvidia sponsored title therefore they will have priority to make all features work there first.:rolleyes:

    Massive amount of copies sold, great for them to be successful as it will pave the way for new games: Witcher 4 maybe?
    The scope of the game was huge, they are known not to abandon a game until it's perfected so I expect allot of patching in the coming months. And probably one or two DLC!
    I don't understand the negativism about it, people were tired of delays so they didn't delay anymore!

    I'll get the GOTY edition in 2022 for $15.

    This needs too much work for me to take the time to experience something that ruins any chance of having an experience.

    ray tracing for 6x00 in cyberpunk 2077? yea to play the game @ 15 fps!

    if they have decided not to use raytracing for AMD 6x00 video cards, it is because there is a fairly valid reason for that ....

    I explained the stock situation in another thread. Basically, CDPR's stock price was (and still is) grossly overinflated. It's a speculative balloon that has been pumped for several years now. The sharp drop in stock price is a result of investors cashing in their profit. CDPR appreciated over 1000% in the last 5 years, though I suppose few held on that long, 130% in the last two, 25% last year alone. It's been a massive cash cow for anyone who's hopped on early enough.

    The first act is basically linear, is a slow burn and takes hours. After that, you are released into the game world in similar fashion to The Witcher 3 or GTA. It's worth plugging through that first act. I've been driving around killing random gangs I encounter, like some Death Wish movie.

    I also love it so far, i'm playing through GFN though. I never played a singleplayer game for so long to this extend like Cyberpunk 2077. I usually quit after an hour or 2 and never bother to return.
    But i keep coming back for more. ^^

    GoG buggered me for months to pre-order to no avail.
    I'll buy it when it will be less than 14,99€ plus free DLC.
    By that time hopefully GPU will be affordable again and availability will improve.

    It still looks insane even without Ray Tracing.

    You mean releasing a total mess of a product is not reason enough to fuel the internet hatred?

    And you would lose that bet. By miles. Likely around 2-5% refunds at the very most. On steam. So less than 1% overall. If you have to ask why, you've not done your research and don't know how little people bother requesting refunds on Steam, let alone other platforms.

    You lost the bet.

    Good luck with that. Not many games get that sort of price even 5 yrs after a game of this calibre releases, so yeah. Not happening.

    That I have. Almost all marketing is built on impulse.
    My way of fighting it is having patience.

    Refunds are being given out

    https://www.gamespot.com/articles/c...y-theyre-getting-offered-refunds/1100-6485469

    Not good start. I honestly think the game should of only been PS5/XBOX X/S game and PC base ps4/xbox one and even pro/x performance just unacceptable.

    This first game since the Batman game on pc I heard of that was refund offered? and first I heard on consoles atlest high profile games. Not really sure what to think? I Dont remeber Witcher 3 being this bad upon launch i know it had it issues but was it this bad?

    That how i got Witcher 3 infact i got whole collection for 19.99 when on sale at steam, now i have copies of all the witcher game on GoG that i got free including the goty edition which will be once again free upgrade it get RTX update and I have yet to even install witcher 3,

    if I were to get the game now on PC i would playing in way where I make way to many scarifies the 6700k and 1070ti are not up to the task atlest not running the game at detail and framerate I come to expect on pc

    Your setup is not so bad for cyberpunk , you will get good fps on medium/high.

    I agreee on the fact that this game should have never been released on older consoles , also they bit of "lied" on PC requiments
