If the game sold 50 to 1 PS/Xbox it wouldn't have made a difference. It's been said before but it's worth reiterating that physical sales=/= success when comparing debuts on GP. if MS can afford to pay more upfront for the same content on GP... they're coming back to Gamepass.I wish they would share more details
From the article
"The game attracted over 3.5 million unique players between its April 1 release and May 1, according to internal data from its publisher, although it didn’t break down the figure at all or comment on Xbox Game Pass specifically at the time, so it remains unclear what percentage of the player base the service’s subscribers account for."
And then there is "
"83% Of Physical Outriders UK Sales Were On PlayStation Consoles"
This doesn't include digital purchases or people who downloaded the game via Xbox Game Pass.www.thegamer.com
So what exactly was there expectations?
