Cyberpunk 2077 is back on PlayStation Store but you still can’t buy it

After being delisted from the PlayStation Store for months, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally returned but not to buy.

Following Cyberpunk 2077’s controversial release, Sony, in an unprecedented move, removed the game from the PlayStation Store, meaning it was no longer possible to purchase a digital copy of it for the PlayStation 4 or 5.

While CD Projekt has since addressed many of the bugs and glitches that once plagued Cyberpunk 2077, there has been no word from Sony about allowing the game back on the PS Store. After six months, the wait may finally be almost over.

Recently, Forbes writer Paul Tassi spotted a Cyberpunk 2077 listing on the PlayStation 5 storefront. However, there is no option to purchase it; it can only be added to your wish list.

According to IGN, which has corroborated Tassi’s findings, it is possible to download it if you had already purchased the digital version prior to its removal, after which it is updated to the most recent version.

Curiously, we couldn’t find any mention of it on the PlayStation Store website in either the UK or USA. But the listing can be spotted on the Malaysian PS Store website, which also states that a release date has yet to be determined.

The obvious conclusion is that Sony intends on allowing the game back onto the storefront now that it’s in more of an acceptable state. However, it’s unclear how much longer new customers must wait before they can buy it themselves. Neither Sony nor CD Projekt have yet to comment on the situation.

Cyberpunk 2077 was riddled with all manner of technical issues when it launched, to the point where CD Projekt even offered to refund disgruntled players.

While the release certainly dealt a blow to the company’s reputation, the game still went on to become a major financial success, managing to surpass 10 million digital sales around a month after its December launch.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Stadia. Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions are planned for later this year.

Coleen Nolan slams government extending lockdown restrictions: ‘I don’t trust them anymore’

Coleen Nolan has slammed the government for extending lockdown restrictions, revealing that she’s completely lost faith.

Today’s Loose Women panel – which also included Ruth Langsford, Frankie Bridge and Jane Moore – discussed Boris Johnson delaying England’s ‘freedom day’ by one month.

Johnson has pushed back the date until July 19 due to the new Covid variants spreading around the UK.

It is hoped that the four-week delay will buy the country more time to tackle the sharp rise in cases of the Delta variant to ensure that when measures lift they are ‘irreversible’.

Coleen was quick to criticise the government for making the decision.

‘I just don’t trust them anymore…I’ve always been on Boris’ side when everyone’s been having a go I’ve been like, “He’s doing his best, they don’t know what they’re dealing with, I’d hate to be in his shoes”,’ she said.

‘But now I don’t trust you because you keep changing the narrative and keep changing the goalposts.’

She went on to say that the government has flip-flopped when it comes to their approach to coronavirus.

‘[They once said] once we get the elderly and the most vulnerable we can start relaxing, we don’t need to worry about the young people…It’s just something different every time and I’m fed up with it.’

Coleen told the panel that her son, Shane Junior, had lost 22 gigs within 20 minutes of the announcement. This is a major blow financially for him, especially as he’s getting married next year.

She added: ‘No one seems to care about that really.’

Jane said that even though it doesn’t affect her personally, she agreed it was ‘a bit of a let down’.

‘For me it doesn’t make much difference but I’m not getting married, I haven’t just rearranged my wedding for the second or third time,’ she said.

‘I don’t work for hospitality, I don’t work for travel, I don’t work for entertainment. Obviously, we’ve all been working but for theatres I mean. So for all of those people, it’s absolutely devastating news and the logic of it I’m still not sure about.’

The government isn’t changing the narrative guys …. Covid is …. If they didn’t extend and lots more of us became sick or died then we would be blaming them again …. They know more than we do so I’m all for whatever they are doing to save even one life

The government never called it freedom day, you did. They said it was the earliest it would happen. So when they changed it, don’t complain about them taking away the thing you made up #loosewomen

#LooseWomen So Colleen, how would YOU have handled things? 🙄

21st June was never set in stone and you know it ffs! Stop making a big fuss about fu*k all! 😠 #LooseWomen

This delay has always been on the cards. The Government have a plan to ramp up fear of variant in order to force more pple to have the jab. So many dont realise the lies and propaganda are now off the scale

Delaying the ease of restrictions means nightclubs will remain closed, mask-wearing will continue in public places and working from home advice will stay in place.

Despite the outrage, Freedom Day was never set in stone, as the government previously advised that this was the earliest date that restrictions would ease.

Designer Michael Costello ‘suicidal’ after alleged bullying from Chrissy Teigen

Designer Michael Costello felt suicidal after he was allegedly accused of being a racist by Chrissy Teigen.

Teigen has issued a lengthy apology after being called out for her past trolling, including cruel comments she made about a then-teenage Courtney Stodden on Twitter.

In the wake of Teigen’s apology, Costello shared a statement on Instagram claiming that the model ‘shut doors’ in his career after believing he had used a racist slur.

Costello, who has dressed stars including Beyonce, Meghan Trainor and Kim Kardashian, claimed that in 2014, he ‘received a public comment from Chrissy Teigen on my Instagram page, accusing me of being a racist’.

At the time, a screenshot had been circulated, attributing a comment including the N-word to Costello.

The 38-year-old wrote: ‘She apparently formed her own opinion of me based on a Photoshopped comment floating around the internet which has now been proven to be false by Instagram and since taken down. When I reached out to Chrissy Teigen to communicate that I was a victim of a vindictive cyber slander, and that everything she thought I was is not who I am, she told be that my career was over and that all my doors would be shut from there on.

‘And wow, did she live up to her words. Throughout the next few years, I would book jobs only to be pulled off last minute with no explanation.’

He claimed he would ‘regularly get texts and calls from our mutual friends and colleagues’ that Teigen and a stylist friend had ‘gone out of their way to threaten people and brands that if they were in any shape or form associated with me, they would not work with any of them.’

Costello said he spent many nights wanting to kill himself, and last week, ‘wrote personal letters to my family and closest friends because I thought that taking my own life would be the best way out’.

The designer, who first shot to fame on the eighth season of Project Runway, continued: ‘As a result of what Chrissy Teigen did to me in 2014, I am not okay. I may never be okay, but today, I am choosing to speak my truth. I wish no harm on anyone and I don’t wanna go back and forth fighting with anyone. I just want people to realise that I, too, am human and this was the most inhuman treatment to ever be endured by someone who has seen their decades of had work, years of building a brand, crumble from one comment.

‘These bullies could’ve reached out to me anytime, but they refused. Instead, they would much rather see me suffer and laugh at my demise.’

Costello then shared DMs purported to be from Teigen, in which she allegedly wrote: ‘You will get what’s coming to you’ and ‘racist people like you deserve to suffer and die. You might as well be dead. Your career’s over, just watch.’

Teigen has not specifically addressed Costello’s claims, but in an apology shared hours earlier on Medium, the star – who is married to John Legend, said she was ‘sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate “sit here and think about what you’ve done”’.

The former Lip Sync Battle host wrote: ‘Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.

‘There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humour. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.’

In the wake of resurfaced tweets from Teigen, in which she told Stodden to ‘take a dirt nap’, the star stepped back from a narrator role in season two of Never Have I Ever.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Teigen’s rep for comment.
