SKYRIM Ships 10 Million Copies

That translates as $650 million dollars in retail sales!

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim had sold 3.5 million copies and shipped 7 million was impressive, but it just seems to keep getting better for Bethesda. Today it was announced that worldwide Skyrim has shipped 10 million copies across all three platforms Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. That is $650 million dollars in retail sales; and the North American PC version of the game actually outsold all other PC games three-to-one. Not to mention Valve announced that Skyrim was the fastest selling game ever on STEAM (the largest digital distributor). I am going to go out on a limb here and say that Skyrim is somewhat of a popular game! Maybe with how well this game is selling developers will finally wake up and realize that you don't need to include multiplayer to have a best selling game. Not to mention the fact that Skyrim is so expansive that people will also be less inclined to sell the game back so you don't need to include an online pass to prevent used sales either. Do any of you think some good will come out of the massive sales for Skyrim, or will developers still claim that multiplaer is the only way to have a major sales hit?
