Cyberpunk 2077 finally launched last week, and gamers everywhere have fallen in love with it.

While it is available on console, it has seemingly flopped on PS4 & Xbox One, with old consoles struggling to run the game. Next-gen consoles are fine, but it has quickly become clear that Cyberpunk is one for the PC Master Race.

After dropping into his Steam settings to map the buttons on his wheel, Jimmy was able to go driving around Night City in his sim rig.

It's worth noting that he couldn't set it up with pedals, and so had to use the gear paddles as throttle and brake.
