As seemingly everyone in gaming is playing Fallout 4 I see more and more reviews of it, lets play videos and news about where Bethesda will take it post launch. One bit of Fallout trivia you might find interesting is that 12 million copies were sold on launch day alone! Hopefully the estimated $750 million in sales can cover the games budget and Bethesda can safely have enough left over to build each of the Fallout developers a working Mr Handy robot.

“We’re extremely proud of Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, and his experienced team of developers for their talent and dedication in creating this extraordinary game,” said Bethesda Softworks president Vlatko Andonov. “Fallout 4 is a masterpiece in game development and storytelling, providing fans hundreds of hours of fun as they explore and are challenged by this fascinating, beautifully crafted world.”

Digital sales of Fallout 4 have also broke records as it became the number one game played on Steam with 470,000 concurrent players. The Fallout Pip-Boy companion app became the number one game on iTunes, and Fallout 4 itself also set the record as the most viewed game launch of 2015, according to Twitch.

12 million copies were launched worldwide, not necessarily the same thing as 12 million sold on launch day. Still impressive numbers.

I guess some of those will not sell but what percentage do you expect don't get sold? 20% or less?

They might indeed sell most of those, but not necessarily all on launch day or even the first week. I think steal sold 1.2 million copies, that can be quantified at least. And maybe shipping 12 million copies worldwide means that stores paid for those copies so Bethesda did indeed profit off 12 million copies? I guess if that's the case, that still indicates their level of profit.

I wonder how many digital copies are sold on all the platforms? Steam, XBone & PS4. I know some of my friends got it digitally on the PS4. I bought a physical PC copy myself.
