Fallout: New Vegas Sells Five Million
Apparently, the reports of a host of bugs in the game haven’t dampened the enthusiasm of gamers to play it, as Bethesda is reporting that the game has sold five million copies at retail thus far. Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks, said of New Vegas,
We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world. Despite the large launch quantities for this title, we have already received substantial re-orders from our retail partners, underscoring the tremendous popularity of this highly entertaining game. We believe Fallout: New Vegas will be the “must buy” title for gamers throughout the holiday season.
However you slice it, five million is a whole lot of sales in three weeks. It’s two million more than Starcraft 2 sold in its first month. Just imagine what a new Elder Scrolls game could do.
