Fallout: New Vegas has received much criticism for the countless bugs that it was shipped with. But it seems that despite all the problems with the game, Fallout: New Vegas has seen a ton of success.

According to publisher Bethesda, Fallout: New Vegas has sold 5 million copies worldwide, netting $300 million in sales. Not only has the game sold extremely well, but the official strategy guide was also one of the top best sellers on Amazon.

Vlatko Andonov, Bethesda president, had this to say about the sales numbers:

We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world,

Despite the large launch quantities for this title, we have already received substantial re-orders from our retail partners, underscoring the tremendous popularity of this highly entertaining game. We believe Fallout: New Vegas will be the “must buy” title for gamers throughout the holiday season.

To fix many of the game’s issues, Bethesda are working “as quickly as possible” on several patches for the game.
