By now, we all know that Cyberpunk 2077 is suffering from countless bugs, glitches and performance issues on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Oddly enough, we also now know that thanks to Google Stadia and some clever hacking on the part of YouTuber Nintendrew, these performance issues don’t extend to the Nintendo Switch while streaming the game. From phallic fireworks in Animal Crossing to people vaping into their new Xbox consoles, I’ve certainly written some strange articles in 2020 but Cyberpunk 2077 being played on a Nintendo Switch console must be close to the most surprising thing I’ve come across during this matchlessly weird year.
