So essentially GamePass will make it so every Xbox game is "successful" from now on?

It's the best selling new first party IP from Microsoft this generation.... That means sales, so game pass has nothing to do with that. Gamepass only increases the number of players played which is now over 2 million.





Wonder if we get actual sales numbers?

So, in other words, Sea of Thieves sold more in the first week than Ryse, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, ReCore, or Ori and the Blind Forest did. Don't think Cuphead is included as 1st party though, pretty sure that Studio MDHR self-published it through ID@Xbox. Greenburg said only MS Studios published titles are considered 1st party.

The Witness is one of my favourite games this generation, from the creators of braid.

I would suggest everyone to give it a try on GWG.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Wait wouldn't that technically include pubg? That doesn't seem realistic to me that sea of thieves could've sold more that pubg in the first week.

Not sure. PUBG was published by MS Studios on XB1, and Aaron did say MS considers any MS published title 1st party.

PUBG XB1 took 3 days to hit 1m players and 1 month to hit 3m players (how long it took to hit 2m was never announced). SoT took 24 hours to hit 1m and 1 week to hit 2m players, so it's not impossible that it might have sold more than PUBG in the first week, but some of those SoT players will have been on Game Pass, so not counted as sales *shrugs*
