Somewhere in the range of 4.7 million units of Fallout 3 were shipped worldwide for the release, on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows, which comes out to more than 300 million dollars. That’s more than most movies ever see upon release in theaters! The game has been getting perfect if not almost perfect reviews across the board. Now that was just for the release of the game, through out the months to come they are sure to rack up more and more sales numbers.
Fallout 3 has been on over 100 magazine covers around the planet and is available in eight languages. The game is out in Japan on December 4th, and is looking to gain a decent number of sales from there. “Fallout 3 features one of the most realized game worlds ever created. Set more than 200 years following a nuclear war, you can create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of Washington, D.C. however you choose. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland.”
