Bethesda’s just announced $300 million has been raked in from the launch of Fallout: New Vegas, with 5 million units shipped worldwide.

Also announced was that the strategy guide for the Obisidan RPG was one of the top best-sellers on Amazon.

“We are delighted by the reception Fallout: New Vegas has received from fans around the world,” Bethesda president Vlatko Andonov said on the numbers.

“Despite the large launch quantities for this title, we have already received substantial re-orders from our retail partners, underscoring the tremendous popularity of this highly entertaining game. We believe Fallout: New Vegas will be the “must buy” title for gamers throughout the holiday season.”

Fallout: New Vegas launched back in October for PS3, 360 and PC and did well critically, but was lambasted for having serious bugs in the game.

Bethesda’s said a patch is on the way.

The company also said a while back it’s releasing 360-exclusive DLC to the RPG in time for christmas, although no details were given at the time or in today’s announcement.
