Fallout: New Vegas Had a $300 Million Launch

November 8, 2010, By Christian Davis

Go ahead and read that title again. Yes, that is a lot of money. Bethesda has made record sales with their latest open world title and their hard work has definitely paid off.

Five million copies of Fallout: New Vegas were sold world wide for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Games for Windows platforms. On top of that, the Fallout: New Vegas Strategy Guide was one of Amazon’s best selling books.

“We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks.” 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.”

It’s always good to see that a highly anticipated game earns what it deserves. Bethesda isn’t done yet though. They still have Brink and RAGE coming down the pipeline. Those games should see some high numbers as well.
