Bioshock Infinite Sells 878,000, 4.5 Million Expected In First Year
The news gets better for Take-Two Interactive and the amazing Bioshock Infinite.
The critically acclaimed title from Irrational Games hit #1 on the March NPD charts, and recent estimates are quite rosy. Deservedly so, too.
According to Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz, the new Bioshock sold 878,000 units during the month of March. That's pretty damn impressive considering that the game didn't even launch until the last week of March (the 26th, to be exact). Creutz says the number is "a few hundred thousand" higher than Take-Two's internal expectations and all told, the game may sell upwards of 4.5 million (including retail and digital copies) in its first year of availability. That qualifies as a super success, doesn't it?
Yeah, well, we say it deserves every cent it earns. It's definitely our current front-runner for GotY 2013. Played it yet?
