        Redownloaded the other night and played a few rounds. Of course I'm horribly out of practice, but it's still definitely the best BR.

        There's no way they allow mixed input. It'll be controller vs. controller

              Though I've tried PUBG on Xboner and controlling the inventory and looting with a controller is bad. They need to do what mobile PUBG does and have things done more automatically so I don't have to fumble around so much.

        Last I read, they do use region locking/server control due to the massive # of chinese players that throw pings all wacky for everyone else.

      Are you sure about the PC? Everything I read said this was between only PS4 and Xbox. PC may come at a later date but not confirmed...
