Forums - Gaming Discussion - Hello Neighbor tops 500k sales, Xbox One top platform

In case the tweet doesn't show, Xbox One (digital) > Retail (Xbox One) > Direct PC sales > Steam. 

Edit: Correction on the "lowest by far" comment. "Lowest by far" on Steam is in relation to Xbox One sales, Steam was only slightly behind PC direct sales.

Being honest, why would one if given the option of direct PC purchase choose stream. So I am glad Direct PC Sales for once beat Steam.

Seems it was really close between PC direct and Steam, the by far comment was in relation to Xbox One. But yeah, I agree it's nice that direct sales beat Steam though, Steam takes like a 30% cut I believe.

Not only that, I am very much against Steam's monopoly, namely now that it is showing their unique business practices and greed.

1 click purchase and it puts it in your steam library.

Yeah, not a big fan of it either. I'd much rather get games on GoG personally.

I'd use GoG more often if they had my entire library on their store, as well as the same level of features and mod support that Steam has. I'd honestly be using all the other clients more often if they all caught up with Steam and lifted their weight. 



                                       

Cuphead did really good, then pubg. Now hello neighbor. Well on its way to a million units. Seams like a nice string of hits for Microsoft. Sea of theives next?



Halo MCC will sell 5+ million copies(including digital)

halo 5 will sell 10 million copies(including digital)

x1 will pass ps4 in USA, and UK.

It's interesting to see that this seems to be selling well. Reviews are abysmal and I have heard absolutely no buzz for it since it came out...



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

This game has a large YT following. My 10 And 5 year olds play it in real life all the time and have never actually played the game, but have watched it on YT. People play it on Minecraft as well. I think I’m gonna buy an X next month when I get a big bonus at work, gonna give my launch Xbone to my 10 year old and probably surprise him with a digital copy.
