"five million pirates" it's been pirated 5 million times? :O And people say piracy isn't a problem



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I wonder, what are the sales of rare baby. I think less than half have the actual game.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Pretty astounding result given what people were expecting of Rare, and the comments on these boards shortly after release!



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Lots of people have Game Pass apparently. Gotta love how they don't say how many copies were sold, heck they don't even say how many players they HAVE, just how many have PLAYED, past tense, a game on Game Pass.

Doesn't matter how many copies sold since the game the game is on gamepass. Buy we do know the the game is selling better than what MS was anticipating.  Also it's common for most games to report on total players not concurrent since that number is always changing. But we do know that 1 million new people played from E3 until today.

Sea of Thieves selling faster than Gran Turismo Sport confirmed!



Good number, but still waiting for the sales and concurrent players.

Just played the Cursed Sails event for around 7 hours and it was a blast! Three crews fighting and communicating together to beat these skeleton ships and then split the loot and celebrate together. Sea of Thieves is simply an unique gaming experience, there isn't another game like it. Instead of reading reviews people should find a friend or a group to play with and give it a shot. You're missing out if you don't.

Currently 49/45/40 and going for that Pirate Legend title :D

 

edit. oh and on topic, that's a great number of players and the game is a success without a doubt :) It'll just keep growing.



This is good. I hope Rare recovers.
