Fallout 3 ships 4.7 million units
But sometimes it’s worth shouting about the old school of games, particularly when they are being phenomenally successful.
The particular game I am referring to is Fallout 3. Fallout 3 has shipped 4.7 million units in its first week of sales. OK, so that’s on 3 platforms (PC, Xbox 360, PS3), but it’s still phenomenally good going.
Fallout is an iconic brand, acquired and revitalised by Bethesda Softworks, the publishers of Morrowind and Oblivion. These sell-in numbers, estimated to represent $300 million of sales, justify Providence Equity Partner’s faith in Bethesda (faith that led them to invest $300 million into parent company ZeniMaxx Media last year.)
So massive congratulations to the team at Bethesda.
My only frustration is that my ageing PC will barely have the horsepower to play it.
