Fallout 3 Enjoys Global Sales Success
Well, it's clear that plenty of gamers still have plenty of time to play wonderfully sculpted, absorbing, and lengthy titles. We wish we had the time, but hey, we're not bitter or anything... 'cough'
Anywho, Bethesda has announced that its spectacular RPG, Fallout 3, is one of the hottest selling games of the current generation. So far, they have shipped around 4.7 million units to retail stores around the world (it won't launch in Japan until December 4), and the super popular title has generated sales of over $300 million. Thanks in part to advertising campaigns and retailers opening up for midnight launches in North America on October 28, everyone is clamoring to get a taste of this masterpiece. It's one of the best-scoring games of the generation - as you can see by our review and many others - so it's good to know that gamers are still rewarding quality. We were a little worried that Fallout 3 would suffer a bit due to the number of huge blockbusters surrounding it, but obviously, our fears were ill-founded. Featured on over 100 magazine covers around the world, this one is proving to be a massive critical and retail success.
The question is, will people have money left over for Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 this week? Well, we figure, even if they don't, they'll still find a way, 'cuz we must have the greats in our libraries!
