the whole point is that when you go and get that GP the players will see other games that they can download under that service. The days of using Physical copies are over and it is useless. There is a new way to generate money and Microsoft has the key.
Is that why their revenue dropped by 10% last quarter?

Saw these on neogaf, MS has some serious work to do outside of the US if they want to be successful globally, these numbers in Spain and France are terrible. Switch has already surpassed X1 in Spain by a large margin

Red Dead 2 has sold over 25 million copies
Publisher Take-Two revealed today during its financial results for the first quarter that Red Dead Redemption 2‘s sales now sit at 25 million. The open-world cowboy game came out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.

That is up 1 million since the last time Take-Two reported sales for the title back in May. That was when the publisher revealed its results for the fourth quarter of the financial year 2019. Red Dead Redemption 2 also sold 1 million copies between that fourth quarter and the previous one.
I really hope we get a next gen version of the game. I was playing it again today and even though it's native 4K on the One X it never quite looks as sharp as you'd expect a 4K game to look. I'd love to see them give us true HDR, better AA that doesn't soften the image so much, improved textures etc. It's a beautiful game but I'd love to see it get the same kind of treatment that they gave GTAV when it came out on the PS4 and X1.

If and when it’s released for next gen I have a feeling it’ll release on pc as well, no?

I would guess so, there really isn't any reason not to at that point. The only thing stopping them from doing a next gen would probably be the fact that the consoles are going to be backwards compatible and be able to play the original versions, still I'd double dip if I could get a version that looked even better.

70% of Boarderlands 3 sales are digital
Also their best selling title on PC which is 100% digital and without knowing how many copies were sold on PC overall it's impossible to determine how many copies were sold digitally on console. Digital is growing no doubt, more money is brought in digitally because that's how all microtransactions etc are paid for but like the article I put up here a week or two ago said most AAA titles still sell more physical copies than digital.

Why FH3 instead of 4? Price drop or sale? Gears 5 charting well for being “free” on Game Pass.

4 Xbox Studios games.

Stolen from era....
Yep PS3 beat 360
Yeah it did and when you add the fact that the PS3 released a year later than the 360 it should really stop any arguments, even if they tied that just means that PS3 sold more consoles overall when they were going head to head.
