Bethesda’s Fallout 4 is insanely popular, both digitally and through retail. According to SuperData (via Games Industry International), the open world FPS/RPG managed to sell 1.87 million copies digitally resulting in $100 million within three days of its launch.

That’s not bad when you consider the game shipped 12 million copies to retail within the first day of release. About 1.2 million users bought the game through Steam while the remaining picked it up through the Xbox Marketplace and PlayStation Store.

In the UK, Fallout 4 has seen the best launch week in the series till date, generating 213 percent higher sales than previous record holder Fallout: New Vegas. It’s also the third biggest launch in the UK for 2015.

This is despite the fact that Fallout 4 has struggled with its fair share of glitches and game-breaking bugs. What are your thoughts on the game’s success thus far? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more information.

    and they say oh digital is optional, and what we see here is how they will defend killing off the disc releases… because what we got here is a full priced game, that have cut cost because of no disc release. this 100 millions goes straight in their pockets, and that without a price drop. the ones that actually want to own a product they pay money for instead of renting it at 60 dollars. are slowly being squeezed out by the idiots and sheeps, that cant get their themselves down to the game shop and buy the game. thank you for ruining the game hobby for us others!

      devs have said it themselves. They’ve also brung in DLC and micros and season passes to get the people that have bought the game used i.e. not paid the developer for the game. Just because money has left your pocket it dont mean crap if $0 goes to the devs

    It will be game of the year no doubt about it. It has fared far better than Skyrim as far as crashes (at least on my system). I’ve had exactly 3 crashes in Fallout 4 in just over 54 hours of play. Two to the desktop and one I had to kill with task manager. Skyrim crashed frequently just after release and had some VERY serious game bugs.
