Hundreds of thousands of people are already playing the Battle Royale game on Xbox One, apparently.
Admin note: this is not a place to ridicule other gamers but to discuss the popularity of an Early Access game. Keep it in topic please.
curious for December npd to see how this game did.
Mostly Digital, already over 500k right now and going strong
NPD doesn't track digital either, so we likely won't really her anything about it from NPD.
I am having lots of fun with it. The adrenaline you feel when you shoot or club someone with a pipe is like no other game.
Nope. You are not allowed to say that. I CAN NOT be true. Actually, the DF foundry analysis did show most of the X1X game-play hovering around 30fps. The most horrendous dips were when parachuting for plains with the deep draw distance and more detailed 4K image. The game does need some more optimization, but is very playable.
but you shouldnt need to get a one x just to enjoy the game on console, it should be a solid frame rate even on the base hardware.
@kevnb I have lots of friends playing it on the base Xbox, 16 out of 111 last night, I talk to 9 of them and they all like it alot. Go figure people that have played like it and people that just comment and read opinion pieces but have not played it complain about how bad it is
many people dont really care about frame rate issues that much, we had them in almost every console game last gen. Personally I couldnt even stand console gaming most of last gen, but now with these mid gen upgrades things are looking better. I also remember being unable to play goldeneye at all while all my friends loved it, I cant even play a game that runs that slowly because I get dizzy and lose track of what im doing.
The fact that you get download at all for this shows how irrational this community is. One day the internet rallies behind DF supporting their technical findings with PUBG on Xbox and now you get down voted for simply agreeing and adding that it's playable?
I have now decided to get the preview after I initially told myself to wait for additional updates first. It looks fun as heck. With almost 500,000 users playing this already, the early framerate issues don't seem that big of an issue for many xbox gamers. Another game gets added to my X 👍🏼
The frames dip when parachuting in that is all. I too play on the X and it is a hell of a lot of fun
You're post has just secured my purchase for my 1X. Cheers son.
Congratulations @Mexxan, enjoy your purchase. This game is fun.
It's going to be fun when it's stable
I remember when I first played it on PC and after a few weeks it started to get boring and old fast because of the same old maps and no depth
Hopefully that new map and 1.0 update comes to Xbox early in 2018. Earlier the better!
only had 1 map. and no depth? are you sure you played it?
*Map* typo error
Obviously. PUBG does have its charm.
500K seems very low, it pushes 3M concurrent on pc.
A couple days vs how long was out in PC? Show me any game on console that have 500k concurrent players? Exactly
That's actually pretty good for a game that just came out. Also considering the bad press on performance, it surprising that many people have jumped in and not waiting on more updates.
very few people actually care about the press, its all about word of mouth and advertising.
@Kevnb Very true.
My buddy has been playing it on his base Xbox... Its ugly, its buggy, but he is having a blast. The game is not perfect or even a looker on PC, but its FUN and FUN > Graphics. I'm not excusing the sub 20fps though... that needs to get changed right away to AT LEAST a solid 30fps.
i like it ruff round the edges but good
Well, one things for sure... by the time the game comes to ps4 most if not all these issues should be ironed out 🤗
Maybe that was the plan all along. lol
Yeah - just wait to 2022, then you will be able to run this butter smooth on the SONY PS5.
It is one of the most popular games of today. But is it a good game? No, not if you ask me. It both looks bad and plays bad. To be honest, i really think it's a s**t game.. But people seem to enjoy it anyways so.. Good for them.
Hey this might help?? PUBG runs a lot better when you turn off DVR and Broadcasting. Everything loads faster too. Hopefully, I can spread this news and some people can help me out here. This will help people enjoy the game more. Fun game, still can't believe how I killed someone by running them over with a motorcycle randomly while he was lying on the ground lol.
No it can't be popular because according to the majority on here the game is garbage and fortnite is better. Of course 80% of those haven't actually played it but still it's gotta be garbage if they say it is.
Then developers should just give half finished games that are ugly and run like shit because it seems that xbox onwners don't care.
I'm sure there are PlayStation owners that would probably overlook some of the "early access issues" as well if they had console access to the game.
Wow where you when No Mans Sky was released. 60 dollars for lies and a buggy game. But I guess ps4 owners didn't care cause it was a console exclusive...... right A 60 dollar early access game that took over a year to fix. Hypocritices
Krysis and vega ,like I said .Don't want to pay for any unfinished product.
Then don't pay for it wait til it comes out of early access. See its called choice.
LOL, keep trying. Havent you heard this is coming to PS4 later down the line whether you like it or not or believe it or not. Bluehole has been in talks with sony and Phil said it will be "First" on Xbox one before other systems. So there you have it. Not that I care about this game. Dont care for fortnite either. Just like rise of the tomb raider. MS really is the only company of buying Multiplats to be timed exclusive. If they never intervened this would have been multiplat but they needed something they think will Push Xbox. Even with the release of Xbox one X last month, PS4 still wins NPD. Well cant blame MS. they are on the edge of a knife thinking this game will make everyone buy and play an xbox. MS thinks MP is everyones cup of tea.
Good to hear.
I'll jump i
I thought this game had already been released and that's why people were complaining. But now that I know it's just early access I don't understand all the BS coming from people........Early Access is just what it implies and doesn't mean a bugless experience. But considering how entrenched some are into their cup of tea............I'm not surprised.
The sole reason why it's became popular is due to everybody doing it on twitch YouTube etc.
Games like this dayz arma are popular to watch. I haven't played it yet but if it's anything like hizi I'd never buy at full price.
Its one reason why I got it, but can you say thats the reason I have about 1000 hours on it?
If anyone is wondering why the game is so popular, BDobbins made a pretty good video explaining it: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Love this game its real fun btw i play on the X i dont know how the S runs but the game is addicting
This game is never getting optimized. If you have less than 8 gbs of Raam the game can't even fully load textures in for minutes preventing you from entering houses. I went and got 20 gbs of Raam and everything loaded fine and there was no microstuttering suddenly but the hardware you need just run this game is absurd and ARK didn't even do this even at Early access launch despite also being unoptimized to hell. I haven't had any problems with fortnite because that one isn't developed using recycled unity assests and actually runs well, but both games are bad in their own ways and I imagine the collective popularity bubble will burst sometime after this launches. It's no surprise the same people who stream these games are the same people who streamed MOBAs for years.
It's always been a mess regardless of platform. Yes PC has gotten a lot better but do we really think the Xbox version isn't going to make improvements? Microsoft absolutely over sold this and by putting hard copies of it in stores and probably gave people the impression that it was further along than it is. However, it's your job as a consumer to understand what your buying and to know that Early Access is EARLY. It's also a decent thing as a human being to let people enjoy what they enjoy and keep your negativity to yourself.
on the box, it says early access
I thought it was Free to play on PC, £26 for that crap. muahahah
Its the only semi new game they have.
Never seen an early access game garner so much attention. I prefer my games to be finished, but that’s just me
It's a very popular, very fun game, with timed exclusivity on XBOX. Of course it is going to garner a ton of attention from anyone that plays a different platform. They're just hating on the bugs and glitches, which are standard for early access games.
Yes early access that is $30 and was said to run at 60fps, then 30 now it is unstable. This is down to the dev but Phil and the boys hyped it as a huge exclusive game and it runs like poo poo
I have played one match and it was fun, going to dive into it tonight since its my weekend!
Popular as in the number of discussions and analyses the hot mess of a port PUBG incites?
I can see why it's popular with console gamers. It is an exhilarating experience, particularly when you're down to 10 players or less.
It's chaotic fun and I love it.
I seen somewhere on a seperate article about nominating this game for GOTY........... YEAAAAAAA RIIIIIIIITE
It’s a graphical mess, clunky at times, rubberbanding but it’s fun. It’s in early preview with an update that already improved performance. The end game should be way better. I’d love a quick mode where everyone starts in the same spot and a weapons crate drops scattering the weapons. Everyone rushes to get away or get a weapon and kill others.

I've been playing it on xb1x not had any issues. Really am enjoying this game
This game may be a buggy damn mess, but it is a jolly good time playing with a friend. This game has great potential and is pretty addicting. I have already gotten MY Chicken Dinner, have you?
Hi what's chicken dinner? Not come across that yet I don't think
xbox beta testers
PUBG is a lot of fun on Xbox. I haven’t seen so many people on my friends list playing the same game since Destiny 1. It’s UNFINISHED I’m not sure why this needs to keep being said. It’s far from broken which would mean it is basically unplayable WHICH IT IS NOT! It’s always people that never experienced the game who criticize the most. Funny how that works...
