Fallout 3 is selling like hot cakes according to gameindustry.biz:

The game has outsold combined sales in the region of the original Fallout and its sequel, and spin-off titles Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

First week sales were also 57 per cent stronger than the first week performance of Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

According to data from GfK Chart-Track, 55 per cent of all sales were on the Microsoft format, 28 per cent on Sony's home console and 17 per cent for the PC.​
... and it hit number 1 of all format charts. I guess that pretty much guarantees an expansion or five, a GOTY Edition, Fallout 4, 5, 6, 7 and the MMO. People with memories will remember reports that Oblivion didn't do too badly in its first week, selling "more than four times the sales volume of the next best-selling title". *Ouch*

In other news, GeekaNerd have their Five Things I Love About Fallout 3:

It Restricts Your Character Stats: I know that sounds dumb, right? Restrictions are bad, right? Not so, says I. In much the same way your actions in the game are actual choices because they require the sacrifice of another experience, building your character stats requires actual choice because you simply can't have everything. This is not an RPG where you level up indefinitely and continually boost your stats and eventually become an unstoppable God.​

Thanks Eclecticist!
