The console version of Cyberpunk 2077 is receiving mostly negative user scores, confirming previous concerns about glitches that can appear when running the game on less powerful platforms.

CD Projekt SA’s new futuristic RPG now has an average rating of 2.1 out of 10 on the Metacritic review aggregator website by 2,161 players running it on Sony’s PlayStation 4. Microsoft’s XBox One version scored 2.6 out of 732 users. The combined scores of the journalists’ reviews are not yet available.

Prior to its release on December 10, Cyberpunk scored an average 91 out of 100 from journalists based on reviews of the PC version of the game. Cyberpunk was praised for its ambitious open world and compelling narrative, but critics also pointed to numerous technical errors. Reviews from regular players since launch have been more critical, with the PC version’s average rating of 6.3 out of 10.

The mixed reception sent shares in the Polish gaming studio down 28% this week, the biggest drop in nearly 10 years, even as pre-order sales proved strong. Analysts said the opinions of gamers using older consoles can be crucial to the studio’s revenue. CD Projekt had previously delayed the release of Cyberpunk to make sure the game runs smoothly on older machines that have been on the market since 2013.
