Bethesda has officially announced news that will shake the Earth -- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim had a successful launch! The publisher boasted "more than fifty perfect review scores" and expected global sales worth $450 million. 

"More than 50% of launch units were sold in the first 48 hours and Bethesda Softworks has been receiving large reorders from major retailers in  North America, and across Europe and Australia," stated the company. "Online activity has been notable, with Steam reporting that in the first 24 hours of its release, Skyrim set a record with over 280,000 concurrent players, far outdistancing all other titles.

"The eagerly-awaited title has garnered more than 50 perfect review scores, earning praise from some of the industry’s most influential and respected critics including: USA Today, G4TV, GameSpy, Wired, Eurogamer, Destructoid, GamePro, Official Xbox Magazine, Joystiq, The Guardian, and GamesRadar."

Bethesda said it shipped seven million units to retailers and sold over half of them. Doing the math, Skyrim sold at least 3.5 million copies with 48 hours. Just think about that. That's almost half the amount of quests that I have incomplete in my Skyrim journal! Amazing!
