The Outer Worlds PS4 PlayStation 4 1

An eye-watering 78 per cent of The Outer Worlds’ physical copies were sold on the PlayStation 4 in the UK, perhaps demonstrating Xbox Games Pass’ impact on retail releases. Despite being published by Take Two subsidiary Private Division, developer Obsidian is now owned by Microsoft, so its day-and-date inclusion as part of the Redmond firm’s subscription service makes sense.

It’ll be interesting to see how things shake out with digital sales included; the Xbox maker has argued that including games for “free” as part of its Xbox Game Pass initiative leads to increased software sales, but it’s a theory that’s yet to be proven on a grander scale. Sony will no doubt be keeping a close eye on the data, as it decides whether to offer titles at launch as part of PlayStation Now.
