Majority of Sea of Thieves Population is on Xbox Says Rare

It’s no secret that Sea of Thieves has been promoted with Xbox One/PC crossplay at the forefront – though with crossplay opt-out options looming, players have started wondering how much of an effect this will have on the server population, particularly for PC players. According to Rare’s Executive Producer Joe Neate, not much.

Shouldn’t that usually be the case for first party Microsoft titles

TK-5547d ago

Would there be a problem if it turned out a game was more popular on PC than Xbox?

Rachel_Alucard46d ago

Nobody likes the windows store, if the game was available outside of windows 10 more people would play it.

TK-5546d ago

@Rachel_Alucard

Even though the Windows Store offers a better deal? SoT is a play anywhere title and then there's Game Pass so buying it through Steam (if it were available) is just going out of your way to get a worse deal.

Yeah, I'm getting Crackdown 3 via Game Pass/Windows Store on PC. Doesn't bother me in the slightest to buy games from Windows store personally.

@tk

The windows store is irrelevant and you think you are getting a deal with them, but you can buy any game on Steam for less then what the launch price is just by going to any 3rd party site. You can't do that with Windows store. Besides the game pass only benefits Xbox users since most of its games are not available on PC. It also includes tons of 3rd party titles that many have already owned or collected over the years through places like Steam sales and humble bundles. Owning game pass also locks you to windows store to play any of those games to, and I'm pretty sure after the backlash with Epic store I don't see people doing a 180 for such a thing.

"The windows store is irrelevant and you think you are getting a deal with them, but you can buy any game on Steam for less then what the launch price is just by going to any 3rd party site. You can't do that with Windows store."

No you can't because you can't buy Gears, Forza, Halo Wars 2 or SoT on there. Also they're play anywhere titles and thats a feature Steam doesn't have so not always a better deal on Steam. Also, what you said about going to a 3rd party site is flat out false because Gears 4 is currently £6 on Kinguin. Better you do some research before stating something false because it's clear that you can get MS store games on those sites at a cheaper price.

"Besides the game pass only benefits Xbox users since most of its games are not available on PC."

Not true. £8 and you can try out over a dozen games and see which ones you like and purchase them after (even through Steam if you prefer).

"Owning game pass also locks you to windows store to play any of those games to, and I'm pretty sure after the backlash with Epic store I don't see people doing a 180 for such a thing."

I don't think you understand the controversy with EGS at all when you make a statement like that and I'm not going to explain it to you because I've already done so on this site numerous time.

@tk-55

Not gonna write an essay to respond to you since your brand loyalty outweighs sense. You're taking what I'm saying out of context and applying my points to something I wasn't even attacking. Like I KNOW you can't buy gears, halo, or Forza on Steam. I am saying if they were on Steam, you could. You use a title from 2016 when I'm arguing launch price, I got God eater 3 from a 3rd party site for $44.59, that would never happen with MS. You also add "Not true" then proceed to not disprove anything, you just describe exactly what I am saying. The burden of proof is on you, at least I follow up with actual issues. You just invent them.

Yeah but, again the geniuses of N4G believed that everyone was gonna dump their Xbox and play exclusives games on PC. I said no thats not the case because it logically made absolutely no sense what so ever. So I was right about majority, of XBOX fans are staying on XBOX. Because Thats where they game, gee who would of known! N4G commuinity aren't the brightest bunch thats for sure.

aconnellan47d ago

That’s probably the bigger news, given that so many people claim having an exclusive release on Xbox and PC means no one will buy it on Xbox. Evidently that’s not the case

Razzer46d ago

“N4G commuinity aren't the brightest bunch thats for sure.”

lol

xX-oldboy-Xx46d ago (Edited 46d ago )

xbox console sales would suggest otherwise. And logically being the owner of decent rig why would I even consider an xbox now I can play their mediocre games on PC.

It makes PERFECT sense not to own an xbox if you have a PC.

shiva146d ago

Ya. So where are all those playstation owners who also own high end PCs? There should be 90+mil of those as the campaign was to ditch xbox and have pc and ps4.

tontontam046d ago (Edited 46d ago )

Lol nobody said that, we said that ps4 owners will not consider buying an xbox because we can play these games on pc.And as usual xbox fanboys will be xbox fanboys they will not play it on pc.

And nobody said that we will play every exclusive ms game on pc, sea of thieves sucks a lot of pc gamers won't bother wasting their time on it.

Gamingsince198146d ago

It's nothing to do with people staying with Xbox, there are more Xbox users playing sea of thieves because pc owners like myself have more choice so playing crap games like sea of thieves isn't even worth thinking about.

rainslacker46d ago

Yeah, if they were smart, they'd realize that PC gamers didn't really care about the games that much. Of course, they said that as well. Forza has fared better on PC, because it's actually a better game. You forget, or ignore, the PC community in general isn't really that much a fan of MS.

Stanjara46d ago

Yeah like there aren't other platforms to play. Switch and PS4 sales indicate otherwise. I'm so glad that I switched to PS4 that you can't believe. I played PS3 remasters too, and they are fantastic.

GTgamer46d ago

So you think just because a mediocre game is also available on Pc that pc gamer were gonna run out to play it ummmmm make sense guys

Well I mean it's either that or the awful Windows 10 store if it was on Steam it'd be a totally different story.
