Venturebeat Hands-on with PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, the Xbox One’s secret weapon

Pretty soon, you can be the last one standing on the Xbox One or Xbox One X. PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds (PUBG) debuts on Microsoft's game consoles this fall, and it could be one of the most important titles in a relatively light season of exclusives for the software giant.

Yeah I remember Counter-Strike GO was burning up the PC and when it crossed over to consoles it was going to blow up the world.

CS GO released in 2012. It got to 100,000 concurrent players and 2 million copies sold in 2014 which was almost 2 years after release.


PlayerUnkown Battlegrounds is a early acess title and it already sold 10 million copies and has beaten dota 2 with 1.3 million concurrent players in 6 months since it appeared.

You cant be serious with trying to downplay it morganfell.

Come on now man.

You are missing the point. People always assume some giant PC title will be just as big when it crosses over to consoles. It has happened before, even before CS GO and it will happen after. And time and again these titles wind up meh on the console. You'll see plenty of people raving about how much they enjoy it but the impact over all - driving sales - just will not be there.

I know how big it is on PC. I am not trying to downplay it ...on PC. That is what you do not get. I am a Steam nut with 400 games there. I game primarily on PC. And I realize a great many PC titles, just because they are huge on PC, does not mean they will perform likewise on PC.

CSGO, like pretty much all Valve console ports, was also barely supported on consoles. Battleground is being published by Microsoft, with PC crossplay (I believe). Very different from Valve throwing console players a bone then ignoring them. Also, if you want examples of PC series that did/does better or just as well on consoles: Call of Duty and Doom are two that come to mind right away. So just because something is successful on PC doesn't mean it'll fail on consoles.
