Valve's digital-download service proves to be a happy partner for Bethesda's TESV: Skyrim...
Bethesda and Valve have revealed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the fastest selling game on Steam in the digital-download service's eight-year history.
"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 quote came from a press release that Bethesda sent out to announce 10 million total unit sales for Skyrim worldwide since its launch on November 11th. This sales tally adds up to an impressive total revenue figure of $650 million (£418 million) across its three platforms.
It may not match the record breaking $1 billion (£643 million) of revenue that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 managed in the 16 days following its release, but it's likely that Skyrim has enjoyed the next best sales tally for a game this year.
Bethesda revealed that its triumphant PC version has so far outsold all other games on the platform in North America by a factor of three to one for the month of November, evidently trumping the maligned piracy issues faced by the platform.
