    Despite Bugs And Issues, PUBG Hits 3 Million Players On Xbox One

    Despite Bugs And Issues, PUBG Hits 3 Million Players On Xbox One


    "The popular Battle Royale game hits an impressive milestone even in its unfinished and sometimes buggy state.

    PUBG launched on Xbox One in the Game Preview program one month ago this week. After picking up 1 million players in its first 48 hours, the popular Battle Royale game reached more than 3 million players by the end of 2017, Microsoft announced today on the Xbox Wire.


    The unfinished game is available for $30. Unlike other Game Preview titles, PUBG on Xbox One does not offer a free trial, which may have helped improve sales. If the three million players comes out to 3 million copies sold, at $30 apiece, that would amount to $90 million in revenue. It is unclear if this makes PUBG the most successful Game Preview game ever (others included Ark: Survival Evolved and Conan Exiles), though we suspect that might be the case.


    PUBG for Xbox One had its fair share of issues at launch, and the game--which, again, is unfinished--is still is not completely smooth. But PUBG developer PUBG Corp. has released a handful of updates already that have improved the overall experience. New features have come online, too, including first-person support for the solo, duo, and squads modes. More updates are planned for the time ahead, while the new map, Miramar, is also on the way.


    There is no word as of yet as to when PUBG will leave the Game Preview program on Xbox One and launch its 1.0 version. The PC edition was in Early Access on Steam for around nine months before its 1.0 edition arrived in December. For more on PUBG for Xbox One, check out GameSpot's video above where we play the game on Xbox One X with the new patch installed.

    so 10% of XB1 users have this game. Awesome. but I have said it before, when it is all your offering, your kinda forcing your players to buy it.

    Still hopefully this helps with development, and patches come quicker. now we need a patch to the Popping in of textures and low res/hi res texture mix. the next patch needs to address this and try to bring it up to some sort of normalized graphical fidelity.

    PUBG is the current hot thing going on so it makes sense.
    They should hurry up and drop it on PS4 already before the hype around it dries up

    I am liking the current strategy, where they have it on a system and learn it as they go, updating it as required.

    I'm not disputing that I just think it'd do even better on PS4 given it's userbase, if they get it right

    Maybe but i think that part of the reason it is doing so well is the lack of exclusives on the XB. Maybe we are all just getting it to justify our purchase?

    I dunno, maybe.
    It's definately doing good partially for it being a timed exclusive but I'd reckon that by the time it comes to PS4, if it's still a thing by that point then the PS4 version will end up selling more copies world wide in the end.
    Remember that Xbox only really is strong in US, UK and I've heard someone say Australia as well?
    They're not really that big in Europe, whereas Sony is

    In other words Xbox gamers like glitchy games.

    In other words - it is not a full fledged game and XB players are being resonable and accepting of the game and it's current state.
