Bethesda Softworks is calling Fallout: New Vegas' launch a success, with more than five mission 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 $US300 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 reorders 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?
