With all the issues PUBG has had with its console version, could it have seriously hurt its console prospects?
One million players in two days, is doing just great! I have the X and I'm enjoying it all the way. I can spend hours playing it thinking I played minutes.
Yep it sold a little over 1 million in 48hrs and still growing due to how popular the game is currently on the Xbox and the game had a poor debut on the .... i tell you man some of these wanna be gaming websites love talking out of their behinds. Yes granted the game is far from perfect and it has its fair share of problems BUT its nothing an optimization patch or 2 cant fix. But other than that the game is fun and entertaining as hell.
So you bought the X £449$500 for shite visuals, low fps and a buggy mess of a game. OK each there own.
I have an X as well and i do prefer playing my MP games on the Xbox. If i ever feel like playing Weeb RPG's ill use my Pro.
We all with the OG xboxone have an x, since all our xboxones magically turned into x. Its funny how the very day the xboxone x came out everyone that owned the original on here all got the X at the same time.
Richy, actually that makes perfect sense. You are on a gaming website. Everyone here would likely be considered a true gamer or gaming fan. Why else would we care about the news? Xbox X was such a leap that any real fan would be foolish not to admit its significance. It'sa great system, and a welcomed friend to my PS4 Pro
I know right. 1 million players in 48 hours and it is marked as a failure. But Origins gets 1.5 million in 4 weeks and is doing great.
"Poor Xbox One Debut" So we are now at the point of delusion? Gotta love fanboys
from CoD? LOL good luck!
@sprintboy I feel so sorry for you, because all you have is a PS4 for your gaming needs, PUBG is not coming to PS platform if ever does it won't be now or the next 2yrs, so you are missing out on all the FUN, so upgrade to a £$1200 PC or buy a X1X because this game will be at home on these platforms There has been a very big problem for years with the gaming industry, game play = fun V Graphics = poor game play but average story line, this has been the state of the industry, now PUBG, i have been playing this game for the pass 4 months and to tell you the fun i have had is great, now MS/XBOX has the game in game preview, now i have purchased it because it's only £25, and people forget about the frame rate at the beginning, once you land the frame rate is a massive improvement, this game plays the same way as it does on the PC, now this game is NOT even RELEASED yet for the Xbox, but as it's Xbox you gamers who have this game on PC knows better the addictiveness is crazy and that's just the game play, this game is still been optimized for the PC, now this has been out on steam for almost 9 months and the game is still been optimized, now if the game was so bad in frame rate fun section, this game won't have 15mil steam players, so fun V graphics, so far fun is winning, when this game is fully ready for release it's going to be crazy, i say get into the preview and dont miss out.
LOL Raiden do you really have to make up lies to make your system look better? No one knows the details on Xbox deal. Many think it only applies to the game Preview. Could be on the PS4 in a few months potentially. No one knows.
Are there really many games that actually "takeover" consoles? Overwatch and Destiny seem to do really well....along with the regular FPS we see every year, but are any of them really taking over anything? If things go well for the game, then it can remain relevant, but as long as it stays on Xbox, it will never actually take over anything.
except it sold over a million copies in less than 48 hours soooooo.yeahhhh
It was given away with xbox purchases
Nop, the special started three days ago.
Cashing in on a game preview title... Classy.
These people don't give up, do they? LOL
Charging $30 for an unoptimized beta is classy. Making it blatantly obvious that if you spend $500 to upgrade, you will get CLOSER to 30fps and have less pop ins is also classy. Ark to this day still averages 14fps. Lets hope your classy defense keeps the same standards. You know, so those “1 million” starved players in desperate need of something new to play on Xbox can see the light of how awesome Xbox is for games.
Do you have an Xbox?
You know what else is classy? Keeping your mouth shut when you don't own or have no interest in owning the console.
Have owned every Xbox except for the x. But after the jank 360 and the abysmal support of the one... I will no longer own a Microsoft product again. Either way, what stayed is a fact. When it takes a $500 console to get a playable version of a game for this gen... they might as well call rrod version 2.
No one has to own an Xbox to see the mess that is Pubg. It has ps2 graphics and it runs poorly and you have to pay for it. It is nothing more than a blatant cash grab
Apparently this was a game of the year contender. . Guess who was championing that because they had no real horse to back? . . . If this is the best you can put forward then y'all have to adjust how critical y'all can be when talking about games on the 'other platforms' . .
Every single og xboxone players on here have the X, im the only 1 xboxone forgot about .
Well said, but regardless how starved the xbox platform is of must have timed exclusive (or not) games 1 mil in 48 hours for any game is impressive but to be in pretty bad shape and sell better than any other top selling polished ms 1st party says something I dont usually have nice things to say about xbox since.... 2008 😆 but this is kinda impressive... its really too bad ms cant get unique experiences like this all year long instead of 1 maybe 2 in 12 months... The fact is being year 4 they NEED to be churning games of high caliber that are must have experiences and thats ms's biggest prob
@Rude-ro you are as fake is it gets.... LOL
^ Why does he need to own an XBox to say the game is a mess? Are you guys that insecure?
@yomfweee I have no need lie to someone i dont know or someone i might never meet, but let me inform you on my setup, i have 1 Ipad air, 1 HP laptop, 1 Surface pro, 1 Xbox 1, 1 PS4, 1 ps vita had this for years since it got released, and recently purchased the switch and the X1X on the same day, i like variety in my life, i work hard i spend my money as i like and do, i like tech, but when it comes to gaming I'm a social gamer, i on all platforms depends on my mood, so were in my last did i lie, please point it out THANK YOU
Usual Twinfinite clickbait lol. It sold over one million copies in 48 hours so can't be that poor of a start
Ms fans are just desperate for games, so sad you lot feel forced to spend money on early access for this, it's not even in beta imo more like alpha.
Did you feel the same way when Sony and Capcom released that busted, near unplayable port of Ultra Street Fighter IV for PS4?
Played around 10 games yesterday.. zero issues
Yet you feel the need to scream to the mountain tops that it’s not exclusive and is coming to the PS4. We know damn well you spend hours watching Twitch/Mixer streams of PUBG...waiting....wishing.
The same could be said for GTS. PS4 owners are starving for a decent racing game. And the we're happy for a incomplete game that lacked content and had to pay full price for a beta. GTS only sold well because PS4 hasn't put out a racing game in years. That is why the lowest rated GT in years sold so we'll.
It's a technical mess. It doesn't matter how many people bought the unfinished product. It may be popular because of the hype, and people leaping in before they look, but this version still is quite poor. For those who keep asking all over the thread: yes, I own an Xbox One.
They will say you need to get in compliance with them or else you are a liar and don't own Xbox.
No it didn't sell 1 million in 2 days.
https://twitter.com/PLAYERU... Playerunknown himself, Brendan Greene, said on Twitter that the game reached 1 million players on Xbox One after just two days.
Wow, you just proved my point. Gamers aren't supposed to be treated like stupid children. Read what you typed again and my comment that you responded to until you get it. It did not sell 1 million copies. I refuse to pamper your ignorance.
Players does not = units sold... is that your argument? Wouldn't' it stand to reason that every unique player is a copy sold since there is no trial or anything? Whatever... add a day.. 1 million units in 3 days is still perfectly respectable.
1mil copies is NOT impressive. A game like skyrim or gta5 had like 10 million preordered. Hell Zelda sold more copies than there were systems, thats impressive
All sequels or part of a franchise that have been going for 20-30 years. They all have the benefit of previous experience from the gaming world's player base. And if Skyrim had 10m pre-orders, I'd be disappointed if I was Bethesda because it's taken 6 years to sell 22.5m copies and PUBG has shifted 25m copies in 8 months. 1 million players in 48 hours is an impressive number for a game that's apparently shite.
its good will keep improving now add the desert map and new modes like 50v50 or zombie mode
Apparently a few people dont want for it to succeed BUT tough chet naysayers! The game is doing more than well on the Xbox One and the game will only get better with every patch they release. And yeah Bob i too cant wait for the desert map and those modes. Freaking HYPE!
Guess waiting for the finished game will suit us ps4 owners 😛
@sprinterboy Apparently waiting doesnt suit you though cause you cant stop going to articles about it and talking about it...
Remember MS/XBOX is now funding BLUEHOLE, so i won't hold my breath for any PS announcements
sprinterboy.. please let me know once it comes out on PS4 Best multiplayer game of the year on the best hardware of the year.
I hope that trend doesnt start on console. I really hope that other studios dont start doing the same. Asking money for beta...
I hope they do. I will gladly buy a game from game preview early for the big discount. Even if you don't play it until after it releases. You just saved 30 dollars!
It like gambling. This game will never be $60 By the way.
I hope not. Because if the developers keep continue doing this, they will scam us.
Lol that s*** they released was more Alpha then beta.
Sorry to disappoint you, but this has been happening for over a year now. It's euphemistically called "early access".
It's the new MT, pull down your pants mate.
Turn off game dvr improves lag
awesome secret sauce!!
8.4 tera-fake-flops is by far the best sauce of them all.
The Pro's FP16 at 8.4TF is far from fake. Even the Switch supports FP16. MS decided not to support it with the X. Go educate youself troll! But what more to expect from the crowd that was easily fooled by "teh powah of da cloudz" for 4 years LOL. I guess facts don't matter to you guys just as exclusives don't matter too, right?
all these people playing and enjoying it. I played for hours last night, got my ass handed to me every game and still had so many laughs and enjoyed myself...so, just stop already.
Its definitely not without many issues, especially right after landing (playdough world, lag stutters) but there is a very enjoyable aspect to it. As for "just stop already." No chance, overly passionate sony fans will attack this just like overly passionate MS fans will attack the next Sony release. Way of N4G.
What? Console takeover??? Even if it didnt have any issues. And it got 10s and 9s in reviews, it wouldnt even "take over".
Lol @ you taking it literally. Lighten up FFS
It's an. Early access. Game. FFS, it's not supposed to be polished right out of the gate. Have we really gotten so desperate for clicks that we're pretending we suddenly have no idea what early access means?
Early Access is SCAM! EA is SCUM
A scam that saves you money? Ok
30$ early access game which is not okay for me. You pay a poorly optimized game that isn’t finished.
I paid for it because i can, and when at the free updates are released I'll be sitting pretty like some many others gamers, i just wonder what will release first the PC or Xbox
Most early access games, keeps on being early access forever. Constant money flow on one product without devs having to work that much on it, whilst being able to promote their pile of sh*t, for a very long time and consumers buying into the whole notion of it 'getting better' over time. The gaming industry is turning into a joke and it scares me, how people economically can justify these shady businesses.
