The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has flexed some dragon-powered muscle in its first week of availability, selling through an estimated 7 million units on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and generating more than $450 million in global sales.
Skyrim actually set a record on Steam, with more than 280,000 concurrent players in the first 24 hours of its release, far outdistancing all other titles. More than 50 percent of launch units across all platforms were sold in the first 48 hours.
Skyrim has earned serious praise from media outlets and gamers alike, and it’s already made several Holiday Gift Guide lists, including that of Portland Family Magazine, which hits newsstands in December. We’ve received a copy for review here at DailyGame.net, and as soon as we feel qualified to offer an educated review we’ll post it. It’s safe to say, however, that Skyrim is more than worth every penny of its purchase price.
