I just got done catching up on Xbox360Fanboy, and what do I find out? That Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is setting sales records. While that is not amazing or anything, as it holds its own in second place, I was just surprised that such a glitchy game would get such a strong following.
Despite the notoriously ugly women and quirky glitches, Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will go down in history as the fastest selling Xbox 360 game to date. Peddling to the tune of 1.7 million units since launch, the title has acquired an incredible market share and even spoke up for 13% of the total PC games sold that week. Just like the allure David Hasselhoff, Oblivion has even managed to become an international hit, having traveled over seas and broken records in the UK, Germany and France.
It should be interesting to see how other RPG’s do on the 360 now that there is something to compare them all to.
