    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Breaks Its Own Steam Record

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Breaks Its Own Steam Record: Is The PlayStation 4 Version Coming Soon?

    layerUnknown's Battlegrounds has broken its own record for concurrent players on Steam, as the popularity of the Battle Royale-inspired multiplayer shooter reaches new heights after its full release.


    PUBG is now available on the PC and the Xbox One, and the question now is when the game will arrive to the best-selling current-generation console, the PlayStation 4.


    PUBG Breaks Own Steam Record For Most Concurrent Players
    In September, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds broke the Steam record for most number of players at the same time with more than 1.3 million concurrent players. The record was previously held by DOTA 2.


    The popularity of PUBG continued to increase after that, though, reaching 2 million concurrent players in October. The game, however, has recently reached another milestone.


    OVER 3 MILLION!! Thank you all for helping us reach this amazing milestone! GG WP everybody <3 pic.twitter.com/twUQkSkP5U


    — PLAYERUNKNOWN (@PLAYERUNKNOWN) December 29, 2017


    PUBG has achieved over 3 million concurrent players for a new Steam record, just over a week after long-awaited PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds full release. PUBG is simply blowing away all the other Steam games, with Valve titles DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive only reaching a peak player count of about 700,000 and 580,000, respectively, on the day that PUBG reached 3.1 million concurrent players.

    This is insane. some games barely sell a million copies, but to have 3.1 Million PC players all on the same game at the same time is nuts. and it is not counting the XB1 players either.

    Makes me want to re double my efforts to get a team together. might be time to by my mate an XB1-S

    PUBG is way too popular for what it is, or maybe I just don't see it the way everyone else does. Nevertheless it's insane when you think about it, cudos to them I guess. Now get that shit out of Early Access already

    PS4 version is likely not coming soon. I read an interview where they said that Sony was more strict about that sort of stuff than Microsoft is so it's probably more than 6 months away at least. But who knows that's just their take on it, and I'm not them so I have no clue.

    Then again there are some games that shouldn't even be on the PS4 to begin with, I recall a mobile game with horrible controls, horrible graphix and poor gameplay. Can't remember what it was, but hey Memerun and The Letter was a thing on the Wii U so, eh.

    the only real way I could explain PUBG is to think of MP Golden Eye. as fun as Golden Eye. you had to play with friends and it was mad fun.

    Speaking of Goldeneye.. you can get a reimagined version of it on Steam through Source SDK

    Yes but don't you need to have Half Life 2 to play the MP side of it and it is 32 players not 8? I remember playing it years ago and it was gud.

    PUBG is fun if you have a squad of friends. Otherwise, it's a pretty boring/very time consuming game that is horribly unoptimized and buggy.

    The reason why a squad of friends makes it suuuuper fun is I mean it's like the hunger games... Last squad standing wins. So there's a lot of surprises and fun to be had there. Solo, it's a borefest imo. Essentially, the person that hides the best and the longest wins the game. People often win the game with only 2 kills, and there's 100 players on the island.

    fortnite is probably fundamentally a better game but PUBG is just riding this popularity wave. I hope they fix the XB1 version though... If you thought it was buggy and unoptimized on PC, the XB1 version is almost unplayable

    XB1 I here is trash, but on the X it is very playable and if it has bugs they are in the back ground and I do not see them. I agree with what your saying for the most part. with friends this will be great but alone. I played three matches. got two kills. Died trying to stay in the playable zone and turned it of. It is largely pointless solo but the world is good to run around in.

    I really enjoyed PUBG on the PC for a while. Kind of stopped playing simply because it's such a stressful game by design. With headphones on I'd legitimately jump every time someone shot at me without expecting it. I can certainly understand how it got so popular. Some people love those rushes.

    I played the Xbox One version with a friend recently and I've got to say, it's one of the worst ports I've ever seen. I actually thought the game was broken when I first saw the textures and frame rate jumping off the plane. Pretending it was out of beta and rushing it to Xbox for the holidays has really killed any interest I had supporting the game anymore. It's insulting really.

    Nowadays I've been playing Fortnite instead as I've found it's much less stressful.

    I have herd and read this many times, the XB1-OG just can not handle the game. And given the original platform was PC you can understand why. It really needs new textures for the XB1-OG/S and it needs to be optimized first for these two versions and then the X. The devs along MS are actively updating the game and we should at leas be happy we were told it was a preview copy, and priced as such.

    It's fun, but it isn't that fun.
    I don't understand the aiming.

    I was wonder what was up with the aiming also, then realized there is no aim assist, I.E no slight pull towards the enemy compensating for the joy sticks...

    if Microsoft has rights to it then no its never coming to PS4 or at least not for years. I don't understand the success of this game,but either way its good for these developers. We'll see what they come up with next in the future.

    MS does not have rights to it. The DEVS are looking at getting it on the PS4, but Sony will not allow the game on the PlayStation in Preview or early access. no model for games exsist's on there platform. Which is a shame. So the DEVS have said due to this limitation, they will FIRST get it to run properly on the XB1 family of consoles, and then and only then work and getting it on the PS4. Interesting they said they want it on all platforms so that does not rule out the Switch.

    Game is GUD in it's current form. More fun to be had on a game that does not take itself seriously.

    yeah game looks extremely boring to me, but with its popularity right now, it would really dumb not to get it working properly on PS4. That's millions of sales alone lol

    xbox is completly playable. Problem is it is boring alone. I played last night after turning on the mic and forcing myself to make a few friends. you would be surprised buy how good the game is when you like the people in your squad. also one of the squad members was a 10 year old se we all unloaded into his head...

    @Monkey

    So I played PUBG with Darth on the weekend. It was gud. There is a micro teleporting issue (rubber banding at the very low end) but every thing else worked.

    We basically failed every round but... The game with a mate just picked up so much momentum. I played with ransoms that i got on the mic with and chated but this was so much better.

    We fiorst landed, looted weapons/gear/food and moved out to hunt. rickited old car that did not drive straight for long, making a mad dash for the "Playable Zone" and just making it.

    20 minuts in we spot some peeps in the house behind us and the house in front of us...

    we went after the ones in front...

    They shot and down (but did not kill) Darth and I was able to revive him before a grenade downed him again and again i revived him...

    We moved of the back foot and went on the attack...

    Well we dided after spraying pullets from the cover of grass ... but it was sill fun. 0 kills 1 death. squad wiped...It was epic.

    Yeah man the thing is even the "bugs" are not so much when every one has the same issues, it adds to thew thril of getting a kill if you get one at all.

    Nah all I meant was just because everyone experiences it doesn't make it any better, but it does make so everyone plays on equal terms.
    Anywho not yet, still going back and forth about it lol. It will come down to the exclusives since I already own a PS4 and they kind of share 95% of the same game library. I still do have Recore though (lol) and my buddy is looking to get the XONE X, so he might be interested in selling off his other XONE, we'll see. Either that or I'll wait til it goes on sale on Steam or something.
    Have you tried Fortnite btw?

    Nah don't sweat it, was just curious. Was just interested because then you could've compared the two games and such lol.
    It's free and easy to get though so there's that. All you need is an EpicGames account and you're set.

    I don't play it much myself, like essentially nothing really lol.
    But I have an acc and everything lmao.
