Bethesda: “We expect New Vegas to do even better than Fallout 3”

Bethesda global VP of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, has said that the publisher expects their upcoming Fallout: New Vegas to outsell 2008’s Fallout 3.

“Based on what we’re seeing so far from the response at retail and from gamers, we expect New Vegas to do even better than Fallout 3,” Hines said.

Fallout 3 sold 4.7 million units worldwide during its first week, as well as outsell the number of previous Fallout titles in only two days.

“We’ll have to wait and see just how much better. We’ve built on the strengths of Fallout 3, what we know worked and added a whole new host of features and touches that further improve the experience.

“Take all of that to a new setting like Las Vegas, which is a great fit for the Fallout brand, and it gives us every reason to believe this can be a huge success for us.”

Thanks, MCV.
