Fallout 3 sets the world on fire, 4.7 million units shipped

Bethesda Softworks has announced that Fallout 3 has enjoyed record sales at launch. In fact, that game has reached the highs of shipping approximately 4.7 million units worldwide last week for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. These big numbers apparently represent retail sales in excess of $300 million for the game, which is a high enough number to set a flame in anyone’s heart.

Before release the game was declared the game Best Role-Playing Game and Best of Show for E3 2008, and also got quite a few high scoring reviews from many sources in the weeks before release.
