Good news for PUBG. The game is quite fun. It will only improve

That's nuts. Considering this game is digital only I would assume sales are north of 2 million. I thought it would be lucky to achieve that in life time sales.

This game is going to move consoles. If you've been around since launch of this game you notice the improvement they are making. Still has a long way to go.

I am going to risk sounding like a real gaming snob here but I have to vent on this..Xbox gamers (not all but many) annoy the hell out of me. Why? They are so into just Xbox they really know nothing of gaming outside of Switch, no PC, no PS...nothing. I play on all of these and have enjoyed watching PUBG grow on PC as many have the past year. When I approached my xbox friends about if they had no clue and little interest. fast forward 8 months and all of a sudden they are running up telling me about this new game PUBG and how cool it is. When I try to tell them about a cool game I play on maybe PS or Switch they just act like you are talking in a foreign language.
