    Wonder how many actually purchased the title out of that 2 million?
    Better question.. How many new IP´s have they launched this generation..? 

    Still it is good to see that gaming still going strong outside of mobile. (even if the latest gen of phones and tablets have shown some fairly impressive games.)
    See what happens when I take my tinfoil hat off for a shower? You come in and steal my thoughts. :lol:  You said pretty much exactly what I thought when I read the title.
    You took it off for the shower because of the lightning strikes in the bathroom. I know the hazards of not taking it off all too well.
    You jest, but I've actually had an insured at my company get struck by lightning in his shower.  The lightning struck the home, ran into his copper supply lines, out his shower head and into him.

    Knocked him out of the shower completely.  He was taken to the hospital with some serious injuries, but recovered.  The copper lines had to be replaced, as did the hole in his roof where the lightning made contact.
    Yikes ! That is scary.
    Very much so!  Always best to wait til the storm passes before taking a shower. ;)

    Did they just admit Halo and Forza don't sell well anymore? If Sea of Thieves is a faster seller than XBOX's only two saving grace titles that is, IMO, kind of sad. I guess the bright side is they have a new game making money. Or are they specifically talking about W10 store sales? sorry i didn't feel interested in reading the whole thing.

    It's our fastest selling pirate game of this generation sold on a Tuesday when it's raining in 2018.

    It's a good benchmark.

    Big name streamers enticed these sales,now that they are gone,will Microsoft tell us how many players remain out of the 2+ million?

    This is likely also a FALSE number because they want to keep the hype going.Since sales do not show minute by minute or day by day,i would assume they drew conclusions based on outlets attaining copies.
    Then once people see how bad and lazy the design was,they won't buy it and all those copies sitting on the shelves will have to be sent back to Microsoft.
    If the number is true,that is a lot of very dumb spending,that game is not worth 15 bucks.
    Using Angry Joe's words on the 79.99 CDN dollar price tag..NO ..NO Microsoft.

    I thought the same thing when I first read it, haha!  Reminds me of the random NFL stats they throw out there: "You know, Jim, this QB is really in his element here.  Stats show he's completed 87% of his passes in the latter half of November when he's playing north of the Mason-Dixon Line at night in a dome when it's less than 60 degrees outside."

    All I have heard is that solo play sucks, the water looks great,  all the quests are the same, death means nothing and there isnt much of anything to really do.

    Pros:  The water is Jaw dropping!

    Cons:  Everything else.


    The last thing I was excited for was fighting the Kraken!  Turns out it is only tentacles above the water with no body when you look at it underwater...

    Really?  It's just tentacle set pieces in a game that's SOLELY about adventuring on the high seas?

    That's...  Hugely disappointing.
