Cyberpunk 2077 Gets A PlayStation 1 Makeover

Cyberpunk 2077 or Cyberpunk 1994? A talented modder has "demade" CD Projekt Red's bug-ridden, bad luck-driven action adventure for the original PlayStation, complete with many of the very same bugs that players have reported on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The PS1 mod comes after two weeks filled with bad news for CD Projekt Red and its rocky game launch.


The PS1 Cyberpunk 2077 video was shared by YouTube user Anders Lundbjörk. The clip showed a very pixelated recreation of Cyberpunk 2077's Night City as the player walked down the streets of the futuristic metropolis filled with neon lights. Right off the bat, the video featured a funny bug where one of the California palm trees bent over and clipped into the opposite sidewalk, which also happens to be a bug in the real Cyberpunk 2077.

The video also showcased another bug where the player pulled a character out of a vehicle and punched them in the face, causing the character to t-pose and float into the air. Meanwhile, on the other side of the street, another character was walking into the side of a building and clearly not getting anywhere. Other bugs included a car clipping the curb and another vehicle being launched high into the sky and staying there in a spinning motion.


Of course, there is no Cyberpunk 2077 without Johnny Silverhand. Keanu Reeves' character also appeared in the PS1 demake, though he didn't look very Keanu. His neck was extremely elongated to resemble that of a giraffe and got even longer as his character moved away, even causing his sunglasses to get stuck at his neck.

In other words, the PS1 demake video pokes fun at the problems plaguing Cyberpunk 2077 on last-gen consoles in a hilarious way. It also serves as a reminder that the bugs in Cyberpunk 2077 are something a gamer might have seen in the early console days, but probably should not see in 2020.

Ever since its launch on Dec. 10, players have been reporting bugs and glitches ranging from simply annoying to game-breaking, such as one that corrupts Cyberpunk 2077's save files. The reports were so bad that CD Projekt Red issued an apology for not putting more focus into how the game runs on PS4 and Xbox One. The Polish developer promised to roll out updates to fix all the bugs, but also offered refunds to currently unsatisfied players.

Things have only gotten worse, as Sony removed the game from the PlayStation store entirely and CD Projekt Red is potentially getting sued.
