News Comments > PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Tops Steam Player Count
7. Re: PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Tops Steam Player Count Aug 28, 2017, 01:22 eRe4s3r
 
8,371,417 owners

Far as I know, no other (non-free) game has this many owners

That's kinda baffling, especially since this game was made by a South Korean game studio. Not usually the ones who discover hidden / non-served market trends in the west.

Really more amazing considering it's got 65% ratings on steam. That's horrible for such a big game. Community seems really up in arms over some of the stuff the devs do as well.

how much money are we really making off a 99 cents [sale]?

Now, I'm not a mathematician or anything, but I think the answer is 99 cents.

Are you forgetting Valve's cut?

Probably, but it doesn't explicitly say sold through Steam, so...

So it would still not be 99ct, since a transaction needs a payment processor.... and they take a cut too.

You never get 100% of a sale, unless you run a black-market..... (and even then, your supplier would get a cut)

Why would you even need that in the US where you can buy booze virtually everywhere?

Are you really claiming not to understand the concept of delivery?

Do you not understand the concept of walking down to the corner store to by some booze? You can do that in most of the US. You can do that in most civilized countries. When you come from an uncivilized one like this one you become very aware of things like that because you find it utterly amazing this is the norm everywhere except in your country which is stuck in a timewarp in the 1800s.

There is a big difference between delivery (you buy something, go do something else, and then it arrives and you do whatever it is you needed thing X for) and going somewhere to buy something, which is a time frame where you CAN'T do anything else but that specifically.

I found Brink to actually be a pretty decent game. I didnt buy it at release because, frankly, no one was playing it.

Ill give it another go though. Free is.....well......free.

Well sure, but your time isn't free.

Why at 2 hours and 14 minutes and 49 seconds did a performer from Cirque Du Soleil "A Nightmare before Christmas in Black and White" walk across the stage and give Chris a drink?

Pretty sure it was a recent stretch goal

Got excited until I read "X4 online".

Watched through parts of the video, and... eh. They're still totally hung up on that whole "You can walk on stations!" thing, apparently having forgotten that they did that in Rebirth and it was the most boring shit imaginable.

I blame Star Citizen for that.


But it's truly baffling, X3 was amazing because you got this sense of scale when you exited your ship and flew around it in space, if you did this around a station or while flying even a moderately sized cruiser it was absolutely mind blowing.. but walking on a station is the most boring thing EVER.

Maybe OK, if there is PLOT behind it, characters, companions, but just to do trade? No thanks. Rebirth defiled the entire concept so hard I am calling the inquisition if X4 has this (that, and these fucking horrible space highways which I spied in the video, make this nearly a guaranted no-sale for me) and I OWN all of these fucking games... I am still super sour over Rebirth and their lies, and even more sour that they don't seem to have learned ANYTHING. The map is still absolutely horrific. And bringing SETA back is not a feature, that's admitting your space travel is boring.. great first start ,/

Where was SQ42 in that presentation? Or did they change tracks and are now making FaceRig 2.0 here?

Needless to say, one of the shittiest presentations I ever witnessed. Wow... just.. what was that even

Lofty promises and Egosoft go hand in hand, sadly also the problem that I don't believe anything they say anymore.....

And after Rebirth and their lies, this game will be a 5$ purchase and not a cent more. I am done supporting lying developers.

That cheerleading vid...

On the one hand sports push people. On the other, you gotta watch out for kids well being. My girl is icing her quads and calves everyday after cross country practice, because she's doing 8 or 9 mile practices. However when she got shin splints last year the coach forbade her running. She had to do an hour on the elliptical instead until she healed. You gotta coach responsibly.

Imo you gotta always watch out for a kids well being, especially around certain ages, you can not ever assume that they see themselves in a (emotional or authoritative) position to voice their own disagreement especially in a group of peers with a dominant/authoritative coach present. My point is, the moment a child begs in you tears to stop you should maybe rethink whatever it is you are doing at that moment.. and stop.

Anyway I completely agree with you, you gotta coach responsibly and carefully. Always making sure that a child does what it does out of own free will, not because of (peer) pressure or expectations or fear.

When the 360 dominated, Sony supported crossplay and Microsoft opposed it. Funny how that is.

Indeed, and the ones who could change (by switching to PC) don't do it in large enough quantities, drawn in by exclusives and ease of use, so whatever, console gamers dig their own walled garden and live in it. Nothing inherently wrong with it, but I can understand why Sony does not want this.

Market wise, it'd be absolutely stupid by Sony to give MS any advantage

I don't understand all the panic about robots taking jobs. It'll never happen. If people don't have incomes they don't buy stuff. And if they don't buy stuff there's no job to fulfill to make said stuff to begin with. It's a Catch-22. And if you have massive unemployment, poverty, etc. you gets angry people and eventually blood revolution. So there will need to be an UBI and maybe shift people off into necessary work like organic farming.

You don't even need an UBI with money by the way, you could give out digital decaying tokens so "saving" or stockpiling money would never be needed. But only if your nation could be 100% self-sufficient.

And that's the big problem, until we get a real industrial scale solar furnace going (fusion reaction) we'll never have 100% sustainability. And so UBI would need to be EXTREMELY regulated and supervised. It could easily lead into an Orwellian nightmare if done wrong.

Tropico 4 had 11 DLC releases spanning over 3 years, and with Tropico 5 you had another. let me count.. 12 DLC releases

He was playing at the fact that this is nothing more than just another "same old" release, aside from a few new buildings this looks exactly like Tropico 5 and 4.

Basically, they are selling the same game slightly changed for 6+ years now.

So you're upset that they've cornered a particular market and are making money? Or that it's not really yearly releases like they implied? Never mind that people were more upset with the feature retraction in 5 vs 4, which caused them to patch in a bunch of stuff free too. Out of curiosity then, just how far do you think they should move to make the game into something that isn't the same? Bail on the audience that likes the title the way it is, or simply piss off everyone pull an EA/Bioware and fuck everything up.

I am not upset I just dislike re-releasing and "up-DLC'ing" the same game over and over again. Whether the person you replied to originally was upset, I dunno. But me? Nah, I just don't really care about this series anymore. I got too much exposure to Tropico DLC releases and now I can't tell one game from the other.. like seriously, I can't tell which Tropico this video is showing if the title weren't giving it away, that is ,P

And where do I want to move this series? Back to where it really started to be a good series, obviously Tropico 2 - Pirate Cove. ^^

Ps.: And one last thing, this Tropico 6 isn't developed by the makers of Tropico 3/4/5 .. so yeh. Maybe it will be worth to consider as a new fun and different entry in the series after all
