Til trods for en preview version, som bestemt ikke synes synderligt optimeret, har 3 mio. spillere nu forsøgt sig med PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) på Xbox One.

PUBG er stadig under “game preview” prædikatet, men det har ikke lagt en synderlig dæmper på Xbox-gamerne. Det er ikke mere end to uger siden, at Microsoft kunne oplyse at 1 mio. gamere havde forsøgt sig med PUBG på deres konsol og i dag kan Xbox-chef Aaron Greenberg så bekendtgøre, at yderligere 2 mio. spillere er sprunget på.

Det til trods for at PUBG, til trods for tre patches, stadig ikke kører tilfredsstillende på Xbox One. Det er blevet en smule bedre med den seneste her i går, men der er lang vej igen før PUBG bare kører tilnærmelsesvis så godt som PC-udgaven.

Der arbejdes dog hårdt på sagen. Vi har allerede set to patches den seneste og det er tydeligt at også Microsoft hjælper til hvor de kan.

Gårsdagens patch bidrog også med first-person understøttelse. Spillertallet er under alle omstændigheder ganske imponerende, og synes at demonstrere, at PUBG bestemt ikke har toppet endnu.
