It has been 3 months since Skyrim was released and it is pretty much public knowledge that the game sold a lot.
But how much is "a lot"?
Well. Back in December it was stated that the PC version sold 10 million of units. And a press release, concerning the Creation Kit, Bethesda also talked about the success of the console versions.
According to them, "The Xbox 360 version of Skyrim outsold all Xbox 360 exclusive titles in 2011 in North America" and "Skyrim on PS3 also outsold all PlayStation 3 exclusive titles on that platform."
Let's take a moment to take in the meaning of those words.
The Xbox saw titles like Gears of War 3, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, and Forza Motorsport 4 being released. And the Playstation 3 saw Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Killzone 3, and inFAMOUS 2.
Those are some pretty heavy titles. Uncharted and Gears of War are very successful titles and you can't help but be impressed by the sales of Skyrim.
