Quickly following news that Fortnite's free battle royale mode has surpassed 20 million users comes a tweet from PLAYERUNKNOWN saying that PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS has now passed 20 million sales (thanks Eurogamer). He promises they are still working hard on improving everyone's experience:

.@PUBATTLEGROUNDS reached an amazing milestone this weekend, passing 20 million copies sold!

I know a lot of you are frustrated by issues w/ the game but the team is working hard to deliver a truly great Battle Royale expierence for everyone. Bear with us, change is coming!

This game is utter shit, it runs like utter shit, it looks like utter shit, it sounds like utter shit, and they are being handsomely rewarded for turning out utter shit.


And yet it has sold 20M copies. Must be doing something right.

I haven't seen people, some of whom hardly post here, this angry since Star Citizen was making constant headlines.
Some folks just want to see the world smolder.

If I was a lot younger I could see getting worked up over PUBG...it's a Third person shooter(a cardinal sin already to many) that is unreasonably famous, given how weak certain aspects of it are compared to classic games. There is also loot box nonsense, rampant cheating, etc. There is a lot of fuel for rage, arguably.

But I'm the age I... actually am.. so bleh, congrats to the PUBG people for the wild success, and I just pity the younger players who never played the great multiplayer games back in the day and have no frame of reference. Nostalgia and cult-like worship have brought in like 200 million or whatever for Star Citizen, Minecraft got sold for around 4 billion? PUBG making 400 million(?) isn't that surprising in this Youtube/Follow the Online Celebrity Gamer era.
