Fallout 4 Ships 12 Million In 24 Hours Amid Ongoing Demand

Fallout 4 is a hit.

Bethesda has announced that 12 million copies of the well-received game shipped to retailers on launch day, which would put sales "in excess of $750 million," a new record for the publisher.

They didn't give us an exact sales number but 12 million is pretty damn impressive, even if it's just a shipped stat. And besides, it seems inevitable that even if all the copies haven't sold yet, they eventually will:

"Major retailers have informed Bethesda of the tremendous consumer interest in Fallout 4 , with some noting it was the most pre-ordered game this year."

According to what retailers told Bethesda, Fallout 4 is actually the biggest game released this year and there's definitely "ongoing demand." To compare and contrast, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim shipped "only" 7 million copies in the first 48 hours.

Fallout 4 may not have the highest review average, but it'll certainly outsell the other GotY contenders. And the developers have already thanked all the fans.

Wii Fit sold 22.6 million copies.

Go enjoy that masterpiece, Trueassassin. It seems to demolish every other game out there by your standard of what makes a game great.

Lol you guys are so defending of Phantom Pain. Yes Fallout 4 outsold it and yes the game is awesome. I played Phantom and enjoyed it but I was really craving for the wasteland and fallout 4 got me playing like crazy since Monday midnight! (Well had to work on Thursday and Friday and now but played non-stop Tuesday and wednesday) and I can tell you the game is mad fun and is also tough. They really have put a lot of effort into putting features that will please everyone. Whatever you like to do in an exploration game there is a way to do it in fallout 4

My house has three of them going, and my boss came over and saw it and now plans on picking up a PS4 and Fallout 4.

The game isn't perfect, but man, it is sure good.
