The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion sells 1.7 million copies

Bethesda Softworks announced yesterday that their ground-breaking game of the year for sure CRPG The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has sold through 1.7 million copies worldwide since it was released.

Oblivion is not only the #1 console game, but it is also the #1 and #2 PC game in sales currently. Both the regular and the Collector's Edition are selling very well respectively, and the Xbox 360 version is the fastest selling game for that console system. Oblivion actually garnered 13% of all PC game sales in the first week of release, which just happens to be four times the volume of the previous Elder Scrolls game, Morrowind. Morrowind nearly four years after its initial release remains one of the top 25 best selling PC games of all time.

Oblivion continues to garner critical success, review after review tout how amazing the game is and how revolutionary the CPRG has now become, thanks to Bethesda. Look for Neowin's own review of Oblivion in an upcoming NeowinCast later this week.

So, let's hear it people - Game of the Year guaranteed for Oblivion? Shout out and let us all know what you think of the game!
