1 million views on youtube = 1 billion copies sold.

And then Obsidian will buy Microsoft.

 

Come to think of it: Aren't the names of these two companies almost binary opposites?

Star Citizen has been around since 2012 and allegedly has over 200 million dollars in funding. The most watched Star Citizen video that I could find has 2~ million views from several years ago. The TOW trailer has gotten over 3 million views in 3 days and broke Youtube's top 10 trending list for a while - far more than any other VGA trailer (including AAA games Anthem, Far Cry New Day, and Devil May Cry 5). That's not nothing, nor is it unworthy of commentary. This may Obisidian's chance to really get in the public's eye and shine and cement a future for itself.

Well more like it was the cultish fanboying that Star Citizen is teased about.

Do they know we oddly benefit from all this? If they did, they wouldn't watch :lol:

My one concern is how many of these are related to the "Fallout 76 backlash train" and how the awareness for the game will endure once the commotion dies down.

Fear not, this is not Chucklefish. This is Obsidian... They know what their fanbase want and that's why we love the trailer, The Outer worlds won't become a minecraft/naruto clone like starbound did when released

I'm amazed at how many views it's getting. More than some of the AAA devs when they announce a game. It shows gamers are hungry for something unique.

The trailer is excellent, if the game is living up to this it'll be a really great game.  I'm curious if there will be a second trailer soon 8)

It was by far a better year for video games than 1998 and 1999, and a more industry changing one.

It was great for pc and equally great for console which got alot of games that were only available on pc before.

I don't think that's it. I think it's more the fact that people are actually aware that it's Fallout-ish and since Fallout 76 did poorly, The Outer Worlds is an alternative to help close that wound. Had Fallout 76 did well, perhaps The Outer Worlds wouldn't even have got the views. Point is, people like Bethesda type single player Fallouts, this isn't unique in any sense.
