According to NPD sales figures, Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has become the fastest selling Xbox 360 title to date, in North America. In addition, the PC version accounted for 13% of all Windows games sold during Oblivion's first week of release — more than four times the percentage of the next best selling game. Currently, the standard and collectors editions rank #1 and #2, respectively, on the PC sales chart. Bethesda reports that more than 1.7 million combined units have shipped.

In Europe, Oblivion's sales are also thriving, as the game ranks #1 in the UK, Germany, and France. Also worth noting, the official game guide ranked #10 on Amazon's North American bestselling books list during its first week of release.
