Fallout 3 was a huge and critical hit for publisher Bethesda Softworks when it was released back in 2008 and if pre-orders are any indication (which they are i.e. CD:MW2) the follow-up Fallout: New Vegas will be an even bigger. According to an article at MCV, Bethesda is saying that pre-orders for the Obsidian Entertainment-developed post-apocalypse RPG are very high.
"How high?", you may ask. Well according to Bethesda's European marketing and PR director Sarah Seaby, "Fallout: New Vegas pre-orders are far outstripping those of Fallout 3." Just to put it into perspective, Bethesda shipped a worldwide total of 4.7 million units of Fallout 3 in 2008. So one can only imagine just how big of a mushroom cloud this game is going to leave in the gaming market but we will just have to wait and see. I just recently traded in my original version of Fallout 3 for the game of the year edition and I still plan on buying Fallout: New Vegas.
