I would further hazard a guess that the majority of those shipped were to fulfill pre-orders (such as yours truly). It might not be an overwhelming majority, but I'd bet it was at least 50-60% of units shipped.
Purely speculation on my part. I have no stats. I've been too busy wandering around Cyrodiil to do any research
Ha ha, so true, so true! Gotta go now myself, finally made it into the Arcane college... got a late start due to the FFXI beta, but making up for lost time, playing night and day, lol... whenever possible! I'd be farther along if I didn't have to look into every crate, barrel, and cave, but I love it so who cares? :wink:
I doubt this will be on too many "to be returned" lists either, it's just too compelling, beautiful, and fun! I think the sales will just continue to go up as more people decide they have to check it out the more they hear of it.
