Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn't the only big-time seller of the holiday season.

The award-winning epic RPG, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim , has been flying off store shelves since its anticipated launch on November 11.

ZeniMax Media has announced that 10 million units of the game have shipped across the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms, generating around $650 million in retail sales overall. The PC version outsold all other PC games by a ratio of three to one in North America, and the title has already picked up "over two dozen 'Game of the Year' awards from major outlets worldwide."

Said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media:

"We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world. We are most grateful to our fans for their support and enthusiasm for the game, and their love of the hundreds of hours of gameplay it offers. We continue to strive to deliver the highest quality entertainment experience for everyone. 2012 will be another huge year for our fans, with the release of the Creation Kit, as well as exciting DLC which will add to the richness of this epic adventure."

Skyrim also has the distinction of being the fastest-selling game in Steam history. After over 200 tallied perfect review scores, this is one game that has everyone glued to their TV screens, hour after hour, week after week. Sure, we could get into the whole PS3 version being a little broken thing, but we've done that enough. So let's just say congrats and leave it there.

I was not one of those people. Having far too much fun with Nier to care.

I've read it more than once. In fact your review was a big reason I bought the game. I put in 15hrs in September but work and other games pulled me away from it. I'm back for good now and plan on putting a ton of hours into it.

I've noticed many complain about the graphics and a majority of the quests being fetching/errands but I love the game. I don't even think about the graphics, maybe that's me being an older gamer.

Nier is very much an old-fashioned RPG with a real-time combat mechanic. The "old-fashioned" part is probably why we don't care about the graphics.

Love that game.

these are the only problems that i've experienced so far with ps3 version skyrim,
I've only noticed backwards flying dragons once, and lag when i'm in a town initially, especially bad when i fast travel, other than that nothing…my 80GB backwards compatible ps3 is a beast!

also my rank is 42 and my saved data file is 9400KB

10 million units shipped and GameStop's are lacking used copies. That's the sign of a good game.
