You would think that a basic mirror would still exist in a world in 2077.
This game has make a hassle if you wanna see yourself in anyway in this world. I remember one review told that "yes you will see yourself from mirrors and there's few cut scenes where V is visible.
I would way that was a big NOPE. The is only ONE cut scene where you can see yourself and that is in the end when the game end.
Even the car mirrors are gone in this game. There is a camera on both sides of the car side mirrors should be. And if there is a mirror on the streets or in apartments / bathrooms, they are gray "electric" mirrors. And huge load times until you see yourself.
But when you hack cameras, you can actually see yourself just fine and there's never bugs or glitches with the outfits. Why the normal mirrors are so hard? Is it because they wanted that funny "bug mirror" with johnny to appear randomly? Only CDPR knows.
Simple answer really. Cutting out reflections cuts down on optimization and gives them some BADLY needed headroom to try and shoehorn the game onto consoles. They've cut loads of content and features just to get to the point we received it. Really puts a big highlight on how hard they lied to everyone.
