PUBG sells 1m in just 48 hours on Xbox One

Xbox One vs Xbox One X

"Earlier this week, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) released as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program, bringing the hottest multiplayer game of the year to console for the first time", Xbox Wire's Will Tuttle said in a statement. This is just a first pass for visual and performance improvements, and it will likely take a series of updates before PUBG is as stable as players would like. Microsoft is promoting the extremely popular game for the Xbox One by giving you a chance to win some pretty sweet prizes, including a trip to Hawaii! Of note, the controls when riding a motorcycle are no longer inverted, and the keyboard functionality has been disabled. The game is quite hard to look at when running on the Xbox One, and while it X model does a better job, the framerate regularly goes below 20 frames per second. As ever, we'll keep you updated on that score.

Player nametags will now display correctly in the lobby during Duo and Squad modes. A squad leader leaving a party also could disable party chat; that's been fixed as well. We're at the start of the Game Preview and if you look at the videos during Pre-Alpha, the game was rough on PC then. However, performance drops affect gameplay more than bad graphics, so Xbox One players have been trying to figure out how to speed things up. For the full list of rules and ways to enter, you can find the link here.

After trying this, several people posted their results on Reddit, and it seems disabling the feature does indeed result in a more stable frame-rate.
