I've heard so many different things that I had to look it up myself:

ET sold 1.5 million copies by christmas - That's lots and lots, by the way. GTA V sold 5 million copies its first 2 weeks, to put this in perspective. BUT sales plummeted after christmas to the point where copies were sold for a dollar in many stores. In the end, 3.5 to 4 million copies were shipped back to the company, resulting in an overall loss of 100 million USD.

It made 40 million in its initial sales, but since the company thought that it would sell better, they made WAY too many copies. That coupled with the poor quality which made sales plummet meant a huge loss that almost destroyed the video game industry.

1.5M for the time was a lot better than 5M today
