Sony Is Reportedly Refunding Cyberpunk 2077 For Some PS4, PS5 Gamers

While CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the more highly anticipated games of 2020, it seems that for some gamers, especially those on the PS4 and the PS5, the launch was less than ideal. So much so that gamers are now reporting that Sony is apparently issuing refunds for gamers who request for it.

For those who need a little bit more context, the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 and PS5 consoles have been less than stellar. Sure, it’s a new game, but even so, it seems that due to bugs or poor optimization, PS4 gamers are reporting that the game plays at a low 720p resolution, with framerates dropping to 15 fps.

Some Claim The iPhone 12's Frame Is Too Sharp And Are Cutting People's Hands

It’s a welcome change, but could it be detrimental to users? Maybe, maybe not, if the claims on the internet are to be believed.

According to a report from MyDrivers as initially shared by GizChina, it seems that some people in China have taken to Weibo to share their negative experience with the new iPhone 12 where they are alleging that the edges of the phone are too sharp to the extent where it has actually cut into the flesh of some users while they are holding it.

2020 Nissan 370z 50th Anniversary Drivers' Notes Review | Adding Some Stickers

2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Drivers' Notes Review | Adding some stickers

The 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition is a last-gasp effort at making the old 370Z as relevant as it can be today. Mechanically, the special edition is the same as a 370Z in Sport trim. That means it has the limited-slip differential, upgraded brakes and Rays 19-inch forged wheels. A 3.7-liter V6 with 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque is under the hood, and our tester is equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. Nissan is channeling its historic Z car past with this special edition car, specifically, it's celebrating the 1969 Nissan 240Z and the #46 BRE 240Z of the SCCA National Championship years.

Two choices are available for the 50th Anniversary Edition car: White/Red, or Silver/Black. One of the Silver/Black 370Zs showed up to our offices, and while we may prefer the White/Red look in photos, this 370Z still managed to stop us in our tracks. The package for the special edition itself is $2,600 on top of the base car and includes the following exterior appearance treatments: an anniversary side marker decal, exterior graphics, 50th Anniversary badging and red wheel accents. The interior adds things like a 50th Anniversary tachometer, special kick plates, leather seats with suede inserts, unique stitching, suede door panel inserts, a suede/leather combination steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob. Equipment additions include a power driver's seat and heated seats. Our tester had unique 50th Anniversary floor mats added in for an additional $290, bringing the grand total to $37,605.
