Borderlands 3 has just come out and is firmly in the consoles of most players, judging by the numbers that seem to promote the game with flying colors. Yesterday we told you about those related to the PC, where the peak of players on day one was twice the maximum peak of all time at Borderlands 2.
Today, however, another important result comes, namely that Borderlands 3 is the best physical format launch of 2019 in the United Kingdom. This confirms that Gearbox was actually the most anticipated game of this period, but provides another interesting consideration.
The physical copies sold by Borderlands 3, despite the first place in the ranking for the note, are just half of those placed in the same period by Borderlands 2 at the time, which reveals how the digital download has grown in popularity compared to the copies physical.
As it is, despite some technical problems, like a split-screen absolutely to be revised (even if Gearbox has admitted that it is already working to solve the Borderlands 3 split-screen problems), the game seems to like and is selling really good.
What do you think? Are you already playing? To learn more, you can take a look at our Guide to getting started Borderlands 3.
Borderlands 3 is the biggest boxed game launch of the year so far in the UK. It sold less than half of what Borderlands 2 did. Which I think says more about the rise of downloading than anything else
