Microsoft Touts Sea Of Thieves Sales

Microsoft has announced sales accolades for Sea of Thieves, Rare's open-seas pirate adventure, claiming it as the fastest-selling first-party new IP of this generation.

Over two million players have joined in on the first week, prompting Microsoft to not only call it the above-mentioned fastest-selling first-party new IP, but also declare it the best selling Microsoft Studios game on Windows 10. There are a number of qualifiers in that statement, but Microsoft marketing boss Aaron Greenberg has pointed out that these accolades do not include Game Pass numbers.

These numbers also make the game a strong success for Microsoft who has been struggling in recent years with first-party development and sales growth. While Game Pass has been going for some time, Sea of Thieves is the first title from Microsoft first party to launch on the subscription service.

Mario Kart Monopoly Coming This Spring

Mario Kart Monopoly Coming This Spring

Following up on last year's Monopoly Gamer line, Hasbro has revealed a Mario Kart edition of the classic board game.

The new Mario Kart-themed Monopoly board does a little more than change the property names and board pieces. In addition to the retinue of Mario Kart items like bananas and shells, Mario Kart Monopoly also has a race system. When players pass Go, a race is started in Mario Kart-fashion. There's no word on whether you should start moving your piece with the right timing for a boost start, though.

The properties will include famous Mario Kart tracks like Rainbow Road and Bowser's Castle and launches with Mario, Peach, Luigi, and Toad. Later this year, a Power Pack will be released that adds Rosalina, Shy Guy, Bowser, Metal Mario, Donkey Kong and Yoshi to the roster.
