Fallout: New Vegas ships 5 million

Bethesda has announced what it is calling “record sales” for the launch of its post-apocalyptic sequel, Fallout: New Vegas.

The game has shipped some five million units, with an apparently “heavy volume” of digital sales. In total, it has made over $300 million in retail sales, and the company also noted that the strategy guide for the game was one of the best selling books on Amazon.

Vlatko Andonov, President of Bethesda, commented: “We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world. 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.”

What hasn’t been quite so well received, however, is the amount of bugs which are apparently present in the game, including some serious ones such as save corruptions.

A big patch is being worked on, and should be out in a few weeks, although PC players are luckier as an incremental patch which will address the most important save corruption issues should be released on that platform imminently.

We say lucky, but of course, New Vegas shouldn’t have shipped with any game breaking bugs in the first place.
