Fallout 3 Outsells Oblivion, Entire Fallout Franchise

Voodoo Extreme brings word that Bethesda’s Fallout 3 has sold 57% more copies than Oblivion did during its first week, and that the number of copies sold already beats the sales of all four other Fallout games combined.

Fallout 3’s first week sales were 57% higher than those of Oblivion. Additionally, the sales outnumber those of every previous Fallout game, including spin-offs such as Tactics, combined. 55% of copies were sold to Xbox 360 owners, 28% to Sony sorts, and 17% to the PC crowd.

The launch also managed to dethrone Fable II; Quantum of Solace: The Game debuted at number seven, while Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 appeared at fifteen.

17% of the sales are on PC… it’s a shame that the platform where the franchise started can’t even come close to console sales.
