Which... would have locked them out of the console market at that time, because next gen generally was not available. Their technology was just not up to what the game required for that hardware. That or delay an additional year, which is what happened anyway if you wanted a better experience at launch.
I blame it on preorders too though. Too many people preorder and it gives the developers/publishers this feeling that they already got you and your money. Add to the fact that they got anxious because they had to drop the PS4 release for X-mas to make the corporate big wigs happy and it was a recipe for disaster. Basically a half cooked game taken out too soon.

I will never judge anyone for having such a negative first impression from a disastrous launch that they never really get over to give a game a chance, even when it's much better - I've done that myself. It doesn't usually happen though, and I'm happy to say that as disgusted as I was that CDPR fucked this launch up so badly, I eventually tried the game after patch 1.5 and a few qol mods. I really, really liked it. I totally get it if some people can't move past the launch though.

Is it finally worth playing? I’ll probably pick it up during the holidays (on sale)

Can't wait to try it!
Why haven't you by now?
On my 3rd (and probably final) playthrough with the Corpo start.
Still hoping they do Cyberpunk 2077 online.

Sounds good since the team is headed by the same guy who was the GotG lead and GotG was awesome. Single player action adventure is music to my ears in a sea of shallow multiplayer trash. Bring it on!

What Huang actually said is up to 4x faster than the RTX 3090Ti if the following conditions are met:
- The game needs to be GPU limited
- DLSS 3 on the RTX 4090 with RT enabled
Here:In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 and its Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can boost them by up to 4X in fully ray-traced worlds like those seen in the incredible NVIDIA Racer RTX.
Today’s ray-traced games see their performance increase by up to 2X compared to the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. And tomorrow’s RTX titles, such as Cyberpunk 2077, Portal with RTX and NVIDIA Racer RTX, leveraging DLSS 3, SER and other Ada innovations, run up to 4X faster!
^ The general performance uplift of the RTX 4090 is up to 2x compared to the RTX 3090Ti and the performance uplift can be as high as 4x if a GPU-limited game supports DLSS 3 as well as if it benefits from the new SER tech and other fancy shit.
I think it is pretty impressive and I will definitely buy a RTX 4090.
BTW, they kind of spoiled the very unspectacular title of the 'The Witcher 3' remaster which will apparently just be called 'The Witcher 3 Complete Edition'. It is included in the list of the 35 games with DLSS 3 support on launch.

For what it's worth, I watched some of the footage circulating all over the place at this point and was impressed by the animations. They're taking the human looking movements to another level once again. The shooting of someone and watching how they react before falling is frightening realistic. To the point where, I think playing the game enough is going to truly desensitize you to how it would be if you saw someone get shot right in front of you in real life. I'm not sure if getting ultra realistic in games that are based in real world/real life is a good thing entirely...
i remember statements like these from the 80's then the 90's(Doom anyone?)and the aughts on up.. Stahp!
