Bethesda Softworks is calling Fallout: New Vegas' launch a success, with more than five million copies shipped since the game's release, with retailers calling for more. Now all they have to do is fix it.
After the warm reception Fallout 3 received a few years back, it was a no-brainer that Fallout: New Vegas would sell like crazy, and it has. More than five million units have shipped for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, with a " heavy volume of digital downloads" rounding out what amounts to well in excess of $300 million in sales.
"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."
I don't know. I'm just not feeling it this time around. I've tried playing the game multiple times now, and always wind up quitting after an hour. Maybe I just feel like I've done enough wasteland wandering.
Anyone else in the same boat?
