This week on IGN's PlayStation show, join Max Scoville, Brian Altano and Lucy O'Brien as they grill Tom Marks about his 16 hours spent exploring Night City in Cyberpunk 2077. Avoiding spoilers, Tom answers some of our questions about combat, driving, fast-travel, sexy adults-only stuff, and how much of a sense of humor the game has. Meanwhile, in the cyberpunk dystopia that is real life, scalpers managed to scoop up thousands of PlayStation 5 consoles, which is why so many humans have had trouble buying them. Plus, what we're playing, and some tidbits about Hitman and the PS5 supporting variable refresh rates down the road.
