Many other metrics have already made it pretty obvious that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has proven to be quite a popular game, but trumpeting that success, Bethesda have now released some official numbers, confirming that 10 million copies of the game have been shipped and that they have banked over $650 million dollars in retail sales.

The PC version has enjoyed success of particular significance, having outsold all other PC games for the month, three times over.
" Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam's history," said Jason Holtman, Director of Business Development at Valve Corporation. "Bethesda's commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received. We are delighted that Bethesda chose to use Steamworks to support Skyrim both at retail and digitally."

That is seriously awesome. I just hope for meaty packs of DLC.

Wait, that's a bit misleading isn't it - *they* have banked $650m in retail sales?
So the average price worldwide is $65 per copy PLUS whatever margain the reseller gets?

Haha, that quote is quality. Bethesda's commitment to PC as a platform. Marketing genius. Because noone else would dare to fill such a lucrative space should...God forbid...Bethesda decide not to make PC games anymore! *gasp*

10 million units in total... what's the split though?
Hard to say whether the PC space is still as lucrative if "three times over" is in the context of something like a 45% Xbox / 45% PS3 / 10% PC split.

The memes generated with images and videos from the pc version may have accounted for a great deal of the adverti.. ok I dunno.

Modifications make Skyrim for the PC a very convincing prospect versus the console versions. So surely the PC proportion of sales must be right up there?
