PUBG sold 1m copies on Xbox One in 48 hours

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

Profit unknown.

In its opening weekend on Xbox One, already successful PC battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hit the 1 million copies mark.

Microsoft announced the wholly unsurprising stat a week after its launch, as the game continued to be the most downloaded through its Game Preview program.

It will perhaps help even more now that purchases of the Xbox One X are receiving the $30 game for free in certain regions, but even without that slight padding that’s an awful lot of dollars heading Brendan Greene’s way.

The free PUBG promotion with new Xbox One X purchases begins today and runs through until December 31, but check your chosen retailer is offering the deal beforehand obviously.
