Tom Clancy’s The Division Was More Popular Than Black Ops for a Moment

Tom Clancy’s The Division has attracted a lot of attention, with it making a staggering $330 million during release week alone. With such high levels of sales is it really any surprise that the game became the most popular title on Xbox one?

The Division has risen to the most popular title on Xbox One, knocking off Activision’s call of Duty: Black Ops III, a favourite for many games and a series that seems to claim the most popular title every year when the next in the series releases. With no exact numbers, it’s hard to tell how much (or how little) the Division had overtaken Black Ops III but by the time, we managed to grab wind of this, Black Ops III had already regained its title, hinting that the competition is closer than people might expect. Thanks to VG247 for grabbing a shot of the Divisions title, shown below.

The Division doesn’t look to be slowing either, starting with its large opening week momentum, people are keen to see how the game progresses with patches being released regularly to deal with players troubles and issues in the game such as the inability for players in safe zones to even get a quest. You can see the current chart (as of 27th March 2016) below, showing that Call of Duty III is back at the top, but maybe for only a little while.

The Division is grabbing some help with mods, such as the SweetFX Mod responsible for turning the game into a 4K experience within the game. Are you a player of the Division? Is it worth the hype? Have you stopped playing it? Tell us about your experience with the game in the comments.

Meet the Guy With the Largest Number of Facebook Friends

How many friends do you have on Facebook’s popular social media platform? Studies say that the average person between 18 and 28 years old has around 300, while older users have around 200. I personally have around 300 as well, but this guy from Melbourne would really make true Facebook users jealous.

Justin Tayler, a nightclub promoter, has reached the 5000 friend cap, making him one of the most popular people on Facebook. He says that people constantly communicate with him and leave likes/shares and other dozens of notifications, so it makes it very difficult for him to leave his account unchecked for a long time.

The guy started out as a PE teacher at a university and created his account back in 2009. He also had around 300 friends at first, but once he switched careers and became a nightclub worker, his friends list started to grow exponentially. His passion for nightclubs made him a very popular figure, having people adding him to their friends list to see what events he is attending.

The whole Facebook hype also brought him some business opportunities too. Tayler found out about a 17-year old who was throwing underage parties and making up to $1200 in entry fees. Of course, when you mix underage with parties, you don’t get something that authorities would agree with. So Taylor struck a deal with the kid and now he can still sale his tickets, but under adult supervision.
