Fallout: New Vegas generates $300m in retail sales

Latest Bethesda franchise has shipped over 5m units worldwide

Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas has generated over $300 million in retail sales since launch

That's across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and "a heavy volume of digital downloads" according to the publisher, with five million units shipped globally.

"We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world," commented Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks.

"Despite the large launch quantities for this title, we have already received substantial re-orders 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."

The game was well-received by the press on release, but has been plagued by a number of bugs, leading Bethesda to work on a "comprehensive" patch due shortly.
