  Record Breaking Sales of Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Official
  Posted by: Jamie on 04-10-2006 @ 12:51
This News Item has been viewed 4,772 times
ROCKVILLE, Md., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Bethesda Softworks® announced that its hit title, The Elder Scrolls® IV: Oblivion(TM) has achieved record sales, reflecting huge market demand for the title. Over 1.7 million units of Oblivion for the PC and Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft have been shipped since the launch of the game.

Oblivion has become the fastest selling game released on Xbox 360. The NPD Group Inc reports Oblivion PC as the best selling PC game, while the Oblivion Collectors Edition is ranked number 2. NPD reports that Oblivion represented approximately 13% of all PC game sales in the first week of it release, more than four times the sales volume of the next best selling title. (The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind®, the highly-regarded predecessor to Oblivion, remains one of the top 25 best selling PC games nearly four years after its release, according to NPD). European results have been similarly strong with Oblivion quickly becoming ranked the number one selling title in the UK, Germany and France.

Thanks Strategy Informer

I don't care bout xbox 360 i really don't like it, it's just like a mini computer but most people have a pc with it aswell, thats not worth your cash....

Anyway what i think is that Oblivion haves a very high (maybe even so high that its unfair for other games) to reach "Game of the Year".
Not only loads of people buy / try it, but also loads of people are satisfied about everything, the graphics, the weapons, the stories, the animations, the small end part of the main quest (which i love) and many other things.
Also the great possibility of millions of choices that affects your game and reputation is amazing.

If i could make a choice which game would be "Game of the Year", it would be Oblivion, without any doubt.

Game of the year award, here comes bethesda again.
It would be nice if they became #1 again after 4 years. ( game of the year 2002 ).

The current mods for this game are small, a new room, some creatures.
But in a couple of months the first big mods will be released ( new villages, missions, etc... ).
