Cyberpunk 2077 Gets a Hotfix Today

Despite Cyberpunk 2077‘s generally positive reception, console players — particularly those on last-generation systems — have been running into myriad performance issues with the game, so much so that CD Projekt Red has issued a hotfix today in the form of update 1.04. It addresses crashes and game-breaking bugs, improves stability, and provides a slew of other much needed updates. Oddly, only the PlayStation 4 and PC versions have been updated. The Xbox One version will be updated to version 1.04 “as soon as possible.”

Despite PS5’s Tremendous Launch, Nintendo Switch Was the Bestselling Console in November

We’ve got one more NPD tidbit for you, and it’s kind of a big deal. Despite PlayStation 5’s record-breaking launch month, Nintendo Switch still emerged the bestselling console in the U.S. for the month of November.
