This is for PC obviously. Although I would be curious to see how close the console numbers are to this..

Should have stated PC in the title.

On-topic, it's not suprising, game is boring and repetive.

The horse. It has been ground into a fine powder.

For the sake of discussion, I am enjoying the game on PS4. It's a nice way to relax after intense Destiny sessions.

A game that is suppose to be endless exploration. I am so surprised.

I can't see patches and DLC will bring back players.

I'd be curious how this compares to other games of a similar scope/size. Sometimes these #'s are misleading, such as, 81% decline in sales in the 2nd week I saw floating around. And when I read this, I say "ya, so? That's true of most games coming out". Just a thought.

There is nothing to the game once you realise just how same-y everything is. I enjoyed my first few jumps, but after about 10 hours or so I came to the realisation that a game based on discovery had very little to discover.

Not surprising. You have to really like it to want to continue playing after 8 hours or so.

Well this is normal if you are one of the most played games at the time.

The same like some people act Pokemon GO is dead because they lost a ton while still having a shit load of users.

Curious as to how it'll be once all the issues are fixed and they get to work on the new content.

They've had a Driveclub-level of poor release PR. I love the game but for those not really following it, it's going to look like a trainwreck from the outside.

I'm waiting for more stuff to do really. I got bored jumping from planet to planet just looking for materials to be able to jump to the next planet. There's really no point to it all after you get bored of the scenery.

And some people were shocked at Pokemon Go's drop.

This was expected with people saying how repetitive it was after a few hours.

Well, if we look at other titles that sold similarly in such a small ammount of time, No Man's Sky actually has a worse drop than most titles.

size wise the game is bigger than most other things i've played, but something like adventure capitalist has more variety and fun goals to achieve than NMS so it's a wash

also this is actual playtime which this kind of drop isn't a good trajectory for any game

There have literally only been two occasions in which I felt robbed for spending my money and regretted a game purchase thoroughly.

This was one of those games. Tried the Steam refund for the first time ever on my account and they told me to go fuck myself.

I want my money back, Sean.

Probably not that different. But NMS was billed as an endless game of exploration. I'm sure a lot of people expected to be playing it for a long time.

Decline in sales != active players.

I don't know why you'd even bother defense forcing this.

Unless that's been patched on PS4.

On PS4, but I've quit as well.
I'm glad I played it, I had a lot of fun for some 40ish hours. I can't remember the last time I stayed up until 4am playing a game 5-6 hours straight.

But after about 40 hours, once you realize that is it, you've seen it all, and that the center of the galaxy can only be reached at the expense of your mental health... Absolutely no reason to continue.

I'll be forever parked at some generic planet 155.000 light years away from center.
