Original story: Well, it's fair to say High on Life has been a huge success. The wacky shooter launched on
Xbox Game Pass earlier in December
, and at first glance, it appears to have already established its place as the biggest Xbox exclusive of 2022.
The game is dominating the Xbox charts right now, sitting atop the "most popular" list for Xbox Game Pass titles, while it's also one of the "Top Paid" games in various regions, even despite being included with Game Pass.
Meanwhile, over on Steam, the game is sitting third in the list of Global Top Sellers at the time of writing.
As you can imagine, Microsoft seems very pleased with the success of the game, with Xbox exec Aaron Greenberg offering his congratulations to the team at Squanch Games yesterday (also retweeted by Xbox boss Phil Spencer):
Unfortunately we don't have details about physical sales for High on Life... because there isn't actually a physical version right now! We'd be surprised if a boxed release wasn't considered for the future though.
All in all, then, High on Life has been a great way to close out an otherwise fairly quiet 2022 for Xbox (Activision Blizzard drama aside), probably resulting in quite a few new Xbox console sales this Christmas!
