Skyrim proves to be a success with some great stats
Last week Bethesda revealed some impressive stats for their latest game ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ which shows how successful the game is.
Some of the recently released stats in the Bethesda press release include:
- 10 million units shipped worldwide.
- Approximately $650 million worth in retail sales.
- In North America the PC version of Skyrim out sold all other PC games by a factor 3:1 in the month of its release.
- 200+ perfect review scores from the likes of G4TV, The New York Times, Joystiq, The Guardian and many more.
- Raptr (a video game tracking and IM service) has recorded that Skyrim is the most played game of 2011.
- Skyrim is the fastest selling game in Steam’s history.
With stats like these it really proves that the wait for the latest Elder Scrolls game was worth it as fans and critics alike have flocked to and enjoyed the game. Personally I hope to enjoy the game over Christmas as I have yet to pick up the game.
