What?

The Division never had 2.1 million players per day on Steam. It might have had 2.1 million players per day on all platforms combined, but not on Steam alone.

You can't just simply combine ALL platforms (Uplay, Steam, Origin, Playstation 4, Xbox One) and say "wow, these many" and then only use a single platform (Steam) and say "ooooh, so few".

Steam "only" sold about 760,000 copies of The Division, so it's really stupid to compare the total amount of players from all platforms and then compare it to Steam-only users three months later.

Now, while this comment is late "to the party", something has to be done. Either a proper answer to this comment or an update to the article - seeing it's absolutely 100% misleading AND wrong.

Hi buddy,


Cheers for pointing out the error, and it was an error - entirely my bad. I didn't double check my own maths on this and made a complete error. The headline is still correct, it's just that exact part of the article has the wrong figures. I'm going to do my maths now (under pain of death from Ben) and then do an edit to the article taking this into account .


Thanks for getting in touch, honestly, everyone makes errors sometimes but it's great to get a chance to fix it up. Thanks!

Receiving a key here would be much better than paying $40 dollars for the founders pack.
