not sure if gearbox and 2k were expecting numbers like this, but seeing how many places sold out its not unexpected

Is 300k in a week and a half good?

Not compared to some game giants, but for a new ip these numbers are really good. Add in the pc and ps3 numbers and you are looking at a probable 500k first week launch. Very good numbers.

PS3 had close to 100K.

PC sales? Across all platforms, it may have already sold 500K. And this was just in the first week. Most sales occur in the two weeks following release. Then the holiday season. This will break most people's expectations which was less than 500K lifetime.

pc version is being released a week later, but from what i'm reading those numbers are going to be pretty good.

This is good news, indeed. Hopefully they'll keep it alive. DLC is already announced, but hopefully this will get them thinking about more, and definitely a sequel. Honestly, I want some other media. I'd like to explore more of the world in books or graphic novels. There's a history there, but only if you care to look, and I want to learn it all.

Does VGchartz track PC sales on Steam? I thought I remember hearing that they don't, but maybe this has changed.

Ooh, other media, great idea. The great thing is these numbers will help spurn more dlc then they already have planned.

It sold 77k in Europe, not great but for a new ip pretty good. I was wondering when the game will be released in Japan, but those numbers are going to be insignificant.
