Fallout 4 Digital Version Actually Outsells Physical Version
Welcome to the new world.
There's no doubt that Fallout 4 is a fantastic game and a very big seller, but did you know the digital version outsold the physical one?
Director Todd Howard confirmed as much to Game Informer:
"One of the things that is amazing: Fallout 4 sold more day one digitally than at retail. That's a big change."
Howard didn't share any exact numbers but we do know the publisher shipped 12 million copies to retailers for launch day alone, and this resulted "in excess of $750 million" in revenue. Bethesda claimed Fallout 4 was generating "record sales" in terms of both physical and digital numbers. But while digital sales continue to rise, I'm not sure I would've predicted that this game would've done better on the digital side. Would you?
Ah yes, such is the way of the world now. Recently, Bethesda revealed their ambitious DLC plans for the game in question.
