Bethesda’s Global Vice President of Marketing, Peter Hines, has publicly stated he believes Fallout: New Vegas will outsell the huge hit Fallout 3 when it hits shelves later this year.
it is an incredible claim considering Fallout 3 went straight to the top of the UK charts and is one of the best selling action/RPG titles of all time.
Speaking to MCV magazine Hines said:
“We’ve built on the strengths of Fallout 3 and added a whole host of features and touches that further improve the experience of gamers.
By taking all of that to a new setting like Vegas, which is a great fit for the Fallout brand, it gives us every reason to believe that this game can be a huge success for us.
Based on what we’re seeing so far from the response at retail and from gamers, I expect New Vegas to do even better than Fallout 3. We’ll have to wait and see just how much better when the game is released.”
