Bethesda's European marketing and PR director Sarah Seaby told MSV that Fallout: New Vegas has surpassed Fallout 3 pre-orders by far.

"Fallout: New Vegas pre-orders are far outstripping those of Fallout 3," she said. "Based on the feedback from gamers, we anticipate fans will enjoy returning to the Fallout universe, where they will experience a new story in an exciting New Vegas setting."

We're all sure it'll be a great game, and this shows we're not alone in that!
