Take-Two has confirmed that it has shipped more than 1.7 Million copies of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in the UK and the US, for PC and Xbox360 platforms. Only released last month, the game is now the biggest selling title on Xbox360, and was developed by Bethesda Softworks and co-published by 2K Games.

Launched last month, the news makes the game the biggest selling title on Microsoft’s next generation console, the Xbox360 so far, suggesting that gamers want slow burning RPGs rather than high speed racing games.

"We are very encouraged by the worldwide consumer demand for Oblivion", stated Paul Eibeler, Take-Two's President and Chief Executive Officer.
