If my social media feed is anything to go by, plenty of you have been diving into Starfield this past weekend. The game officially releases this coming Wednesday 6 September, but early access opened up last Friday for those with the Premium or Constellation editions.
Starfield is already one of Twitch’s most-viewed games. I had the pleasure of reviewing the game, granting it a perfect 10 out of 10. Our review reads, “Every now and then, a new game comes along that changes our perception of what the industry is capable of. Starfield is that game. This is beyond what we’ve come to know an open-world to be. Bethesda has created a universe that, despite its vast scale, maintains interest and an impressive attention to detail throughout.” It’s not surprising that so many people want to dive in. In fact, Xbox Series X sales have reportedly skyrocketed in the past couple of days.
Take a look at our video review of Starfield below.
As reported by Tech4Gamers, Series X sales have risen by 1000% on Amazon US. Twitter user PeterOvo5 captured a screenshot showing that the Series X is the fifth most popular trending gaming-related item on the site, sitting behind Persona 3 Reload: Collector’s Edition - Xbox Series X.
The Series X has a sales rank of 32, with the screenshot showing that it previously ranked at 370. This means that the Series X has seen a 1056% increase in sales. We can’t for certain say that this is down to Starfield, but it’s a pretty likely theory. Series X sales rise as the biggest exclusive in years releases … Yeah, that’s not a coincidence.
If you’re yet to dive into the game, don’t forget that it’s set to be a Game Pass day one release. This has timed with Microsoft raising the prices of Game Pass, but it could still be a more cost effective way of nabbing Starfield.
