Must be weird for Xbox fans to see Sea Of Thieves at number 4 on the NPD charts

ravens5244d ago

The "best selling" game!?!? Lol. The narratives, I swear.

PhillyDonJawn43d ago

No it's more funny than weird. Cause ps fans swore SoT was bad and didn't interest them at all 😂

helicoptergirl43d ago

Everyone knows a game can change in 6 years. The beta testers on xbox one are apparently laughing so you tell me. Well the definitive edition players look to be enjoying themselves. Thanks for your service

PhillyDonJawn43d ago

"A game can change in 6 years" 😂 no game ever.

@PhillyDonJawn

Xbox fans said SOT was bad too when it first game out. (genuine fans, not the people that defend no matter what)

It was panned because it was so barebones and felt unfinished.

And a game CAN change over time. How many updates did SOT get between the initial Xbox release and this PS release? Need proof, look at the SOT wiki

https://seaofthieves.fandom...

Look at all the updates and seasons that came BEFORE the Playstation released. The game is changed A LOT

CrimsonWing6944d ago

Well, would you look at that Sony! Guess there’s an audience after all for this stuff.

JEECE44d ago

I wonder where the change from "NPD" to "Circana" ranks on the chart of lamest rebrands? And yes I know it changed awhile ago it just annoys me every time I see it.

anast44d ago

People like this game, despite the big puritan push against it.

Hugodastrevas44d ago

Stellar Blade deserves it, it's just a gorgeous well-optomized working right out of the box game. Would plat all over again.

Helldivers 2 Players Urge the Devs to Change the War Dynamics

The Helldivers 2 community claims the current war dynamics are stale and in need of a change. Players suggest the best ways to do that.

MIDGETonSTILTS171d 3h ago

Sometimes the orders are fascist busy work, other times they are a scripted chapter in an ongoing theater of war.

And I bet they pace out significant events they have planned based on when player count begins to dwindle.

That’s what GaaS models typically ARE.

If anything, Arrowhead is just doing it GREAT so often with their significant events, which most GaaS’s I’ve played lacked, that the typical GaaS busy work eras stand out as “meh” for the genre for once…

Why is N4G / Videogamer insistent on pushing articles on this game as well as ZZZ & xDefiant so much? Every time I log in, there's multiple articles at the top with no comments and small temperature so its obvious people aren't interested in them. (obviously people ARE interested in Helldivers not THIS type of content - I mean we don't need 5 articles a day on every little change).

I don't have a problem with the pinning - it's their site so they can do what they want and understandably they are going to weight their own content - but why all these random articles about these three games in particular? It comes across as either undisclosed sponsored content or AI generated crap.

I brought this same exact issue up months ago

Tacoboto13h ago

The chief admin of this site has never cared about making this place a good community with engaging content - it's always been about clicks and viral engagement no matter how toxic or irrelevant/forced on the topic is.

Xbox is the lowest selling platform and is largely irrelevant now, would never know it by the 100+ comments in posts every couple days about how irrelevant they are.

Helldivers 2 is down 90% - no wait, 97%! - of its playerbase, but you would never know it based on... Everything else those same guys post and auto-approve.

"Stale"

This is why going GAAS is crazy. You have your players calling your game stale despite the game being just a couple months old and have added so much in such a short time since launch.

I can see the article titles now

“Videogamer journalists think that…”

Cacabunga1d 10h ago

Just imagine you buy a gaas and it loses player count this bad.. it just becomes unplayable!! Worst gaming model ever

TheProfessional1d 16h ago (Edited 1d 15h ago )

People are always deflecting now, if the game had better content it wouldn't have lost this many players. Sure most games have a decrease after launch but not over 90%. This game was overhyped; levels take too long, bad customization, generic bug enemies. The robots are good but otherwise it's pretty bland.

It's a simple wave mode with no depth or variety, this type of gameplay used to be dlc or an extra mode. Not sure why it was ever as popular as it was, maybe there weren't really other games out.

Hypertension1401d 15h ago

@TheProfessional

It's clear from your comment history why you are trying to bring the game down, it's obvious you haven't played it yet based on how your comments sound.

Trust me, this is the type of game the Xbox fanbase would love. Stop letting platform loyalty keep you from playing one the best co op shooters in recent memory.

itsmebryan1d 15h ago

@ hypertension
How do you explain the large drop in player count?

tay87011d 13h ago

Wtf are you talking about overhyped. Game launch with little to no fan fare. It exploded because it us fun. I'm not a MP gamer and I had a great time with it. Played it non stop for a couple months. I personally do not spend more than a couple months on any game

Profchaos1d 11h ago

It's all PC players though games in a healthy state on console the reason why PC is tanking is self explanatory

mkis0071d 5h ago (Edited 1d 5h ago )

In fact 90% games that have an abnormally high all time peak at launch decrease that much. It's only that 10% that maintain high player counts, and from steam db front page, it looks like they are the games that got in on the ground floor as far as live service goes. 400,000 plus( pc only all time peak) is abnormally high. Heck over 300,000 is high based on what I'm seeing on the steam db pages of popular games.

30,000 players at once is not low...especially for a game that was never built to be in this realm of popularity. 12 million sales is the proof that the game is doing fine...

Still lost 97% of its player base. Sony gamers don't support their games. That's why concord had to go open beta.
