PUBG for Xbox One managed to grab the 4th spot in last week's UK chart, just below Call of Duty: WWII, FIFA 18 and Star Wars Battlefront II.
look at that. .
@above I don't know what it is about PUBG gamers like. . I might just find out for myself.
lol having a mind_of_ my_ own is not trolling. do you spend 24/7 gaming?
@Wolly it's a fair price and plays decent even for a game preview game. It's a game PS4 owners would love to have if they can't try on PC.
Sales were good for PUBG mostly due to the fact that there are little other exciting new choices for X1. The game is a hot mess. Has potential sure but I think unless optimized soon it will face strong competition from other battle royale games.
That why there are no ps4 exclusives in the top 10 as well???? You know there are other games that people obviously prefer over "exclusives"....peop le like you....can only shake my head.
@Enjoi This a debut chart. Its going to go down. I take it you missed the part where Uncharted 4 And Horizon debuted at #1. I also wouldn’t be too excited at the fact that it dedbuted behind BF2, a game that is supposedly seeing abysmal sales.
It's the Holiday season, when all the 'hot' games are out. Out of all of the third party developer games, this is one of the hot ones. Let's not act like there are only exclusives and PUBG to play right now.
@Enjoy Look MS paid for time exclusivity and they should not have bothered doing that. It's not a system seller game. And it is true it is releasing with very poor optimization. This was clearly rushed out for console to get the holiday sales. Any other game gets released like this and it gets torn to shreds. People like you who have no other options but to purchase poorly optimized games sold as new release. Can only shake my head.
So by your logic, do games like mario or uncharted only sell well because there is nothing out to play for those platforms or could it be because they are... just really fun games?
Oh I see that's why they must have sold 15 million copies on pc, what with there being no exciting choices on pc either. /s
Not really. It would take a lot of effort to take down Call of Duty WW2. Remember COD is the most popular franchise that can hold it owns. But this is show how I hate the developer to make a 30$ Early Acces Game.
gtaV technically is number one with 1 billion in 3 days and lifetime and even wild online success. But yeah for first person and being number 2 in recent time.
Look at what? Debuting behind 3 games that have been out for weeks..........
@TKCMuzzer & DialgaMarine Well which is it? Is this a debut chart or a chart for games that have been out for weeks? Jesus, fanboys can't even agree on what they are hating on.
Definitely look at this, not bad for a game that was discussed as a mistake or no one would play.
What else released last week? Oh that's right... Nothing.
Aint gonna save u or xbox. Good job though. The writings on the wall. Xbox will end up as a service. Bookmark this. One more gen tops.
Games in the style of hungry games are well suited for many gamers!
That's impressive. I hope players keep enjoying it.
I'd like to play it, but I don't/wouldn't own an Xbox, and I don't own a PC. Happy for those who are enjoying it.
I don't think your missing much but it will be on ps4 this time next year https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I've just watch the YouTube you posted quite funny but I can honestly say I've had none of these issues shown as of yet.
I hope so. The more people the better. Should be nice and polished by then.
I was surprised how different PUBG and Fortnite other than the obvious game mode they are both really good in different ways
Fornite is shit. Absolutely nothing like it.
We need more people like you here :)
Amen to that, bud.
I honestly don't understand how the game is as popular as it is. It looks terrible and performs worse. Strange to me. However the three games that beat it is saddening. Edit: Spelling
Yeah haven't you heard? The UK don't stand for BS practices 😂😂😂 It's really fun played with friends. This isn't a AAA game, nor is it trying to be. I would suggest giving it a go if you're into shooters. I had the exact same view looking back at games like Dayz, and H1Z1.
I definitely wanna give it go a just to try out. I enjoy fornite battle royale and ironically the only reason I played that game was because of the PUBG devs complaining about it xD However, I don't want to spend 30 euro on it. It's not something I want to invest money in. I'm sure there will be a free weekend some time at which point I'll definitely jump on to check it out.
@ninsigma tbh the same can be said for any game. I don't get why people like Minecraft but millions love it. Its the same with GTA, COD they are just not games I am into and I don't think look to good to. Its each to there own and at the end of the day if people are enjoying the game then whats to hate let people enjoy what they want and we can enjoy what we want to.
It's understandable why kids like minecraft tbh.
Not hating. Just wondering.
OB1biker it's understandable why people love all the games I put but those games are just not for me. I really liked titanfall but can't get into the 2nd game it feels to slow. Just like i love racing games the most but can't get into project cars or the crew but love forza ms, horozon, GT, Dirt and F1. It's just each to there own. Like who owns a PS4, Xbox one or swith, or Android phone or phone. We all like different things and some people prefer one thing more than others. I lived split/second last gen but could not get into blur for example.
@OB1Biker I don't think you understand how many adults actually play Minecraft.
You should watch the video if you really dont know. It explains why the game is so thrilling to play: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
"I honestly don't understand how the game is as popular as it is." Neither did I until I tried it, finally won my first chicken dinner and now play it whenever possible.
decent concept with max height. Domino effect.
Play it and you will see. Fortnite is cool but nothing compared to PUBG
Do these charts include digitally downloads? Or is it just physical sales?
Preview games don't release on disc.
It's had a "physical" release in the UK but really all you're getting is a code in a box. Even the supermarkets here are pushing it as are stores like Argos. Everyone jumping on the bandwagon. No doubt it's the same worldwide. I'm aware it's in preview but I do feel the way some of these places are marketing it is gonna have people convinced it's a final release and some are gonna be disappointed.
digital sales won’t be counted on these charts until January 2019
Not sure why you have been downvoted. That's true.
this is hyped so much no wonder everyone is out buying it
For such a high selling game on pc this is much lower than i expected.
Pretty damn solid for.. what was it.. "a broken mess that drops to 14 fps and looks like a PS2 game" Having an absolute blast with PUBG. Most fun multiplayer game in recent memory for me. And oh.. looky looky, BF2 is ahead. So much for that boycott. More people enjoying microtransactions than dropping $20 on an early release game. Looks like neckbeard hashtag campaigns achieve diddly-dick eh? Nintendo exclusives killing it on that list also. Delicious tears.
There currently are no microtransactions in BF2... Because of those neckbeard hashtag campaigns...
Not for long!
Still the opposite of what you said originally!
im liking it so far
Nice, but I hope it gets optimized soon
For a game with so much success on the PC, I expected to do much better, also it’s a sad state to be in, given that we as gamers turn to brag about first or second place, seeing some Xbox fans celebrating a game that came in 4th place, but I guess we all have different expectations. More power to those who enjoy it, I for one can’t stand a game, with such bad optimization
It's pretty obvious as gamers that very few games if any can beat out juggernauts like CoD or Fifa. Why you actually think that this game was suppose to is interesting as I don't think any game has ever done such a thing. Xbox fans are not celebrating it's place in the charts (even though it's surprising where it is considering the competition) they are celebrating that it's a fun game after being told no one would play it and having to hear that MS made a mistake grabbing this game. I'm curious exactly what more were you expecting this game to do considering it's success so far?
Is it really out of the realm of possibilities to assume that a game that sell well over 24 million on one platform can at least do better than 4th place on its release week on another platform? I recall many people telling xbox fans the game is poorly optimized, but it keeps selling well on PC because many people enjoy the game, so i expected similar results, a poorly optimized game that does well. My expectation are my own, and i expected the game to do better based off it's current history and the huge push from MS, what other people told Xbox fans is not my concern, neither is your curiosity.
jrshankill, he almost had it. Flew too close to the sun though
Having an absolute blast with PUBG. Most fun multiplayer game in recent memory for me.
And it's just a box with a download code! This thing is HUGE! Well played Microsoft, well played indeed!
Another fail. Thats what it means. videogaming and pc gaming isnt the same thing.
fail??? 1 million people in the first 48hrs is equal to failure? almost every game out there must be a failure to you then too smh
This is the is the so call hottest game on PC. Not being able to go to the top show that. One million? I would not believe in everything Microsoft says. There are many tricks to say one million gamers and they are the PR kings. In terms of sales, very far away from the top. A hit goes the top and not 4 place, much less after all the hype it got for months. Launch week in normal cases is the best week for any game.... By the away, they are already giving the game away and that says everything.
I don’t think all the bragging Xbox fans understand what “debut” means. Also, did you not notice it’s behind Star Wars BF2? A game that is seeing abysmal sales?
"A game that is seeing abysmal sales?" Really, pretty sure despite the controversy Battlefront is actually doing extremely well. And yes, I would think a world wide, well known, established IP like STAR WARS would pretty much beat out a lot of things especially a game in early access and only on one console.
It’s selling through 20% of how much the 2015 title did. That’s not that great.
"It’s selling through 20% of how much the 2015 title did. That’s not that great." Not true.
C'mon, you're PAYING for an early access mess and you think that's okay? If it was free, as it should be until it's finished, then ok, but this 25-30fps on X, why bother. If you support this precident, then you get what you deserve.
Have you played?
Clearly not, otherwise I wouldn't have made the comment. :) It's nothing against the game, I'm quite keen to play it, but paying for a early access game that, by definition isn't complete.Well, that to me is just plain wrong.
