Fallout 4 breaks records on launch day

Fallout 4 breaks records on launch day
Fallout 4 was released three days ago with amazing numbers that confirm that it's the most anticipated game of the year. Developer Bethesda Softworks has announced today that they have shipped 12 million copies of their new First-Person Shooter on launch day "representing sales in excess of $750 million." Note that they didn't confirm any numbers about the number of sales to customers and not to retailers, but according to the latter, the game registers the largest number of sales of the year by far at the day of its release, and it's also the most pre-ordered game of the year.

That's for the standard edition of the game, but Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition was sold out barely a few hours after it started selling, becoming the fastest-selling collector’s edition “of any game in history at leading retailers." Add to that that Fallout Pip-Boy App became the top-selling game on iTunes App Store and that Fallout 4 holds the title for the game launch viewed by most people this year and the top played game at launch in steam, reaching a peak of 445.546 players. Those are breathtaking numbers to backup the nomination of Fallout 4 to the Best Game of the Year on the Game Awards 2015. The competition with Bloodborne, Metal Gear solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Super Mario Maker, and The Witcher 3: The wild Hunt is going to be tight but Behtesda can definitely be proud of the game numbers at launch.
