Madden NFL 10 Online Numbers Go Through The Roof
We all know that Madden NFL 10 has already sold about a gajillion copies (that's an actual number now, by the way). But perhaps what's more telling in this new generation is just how many people have flocked to indulge in some online pigskin fun.
According to statistics located by Koku Gamer, the latest Madden installment has reached several online multiplayer milestones. Firstly, EA Sports boss Peter Moore has revealed that they've already managed to get 100,000 players online at once, which Moore reminds us is many more than can fit into an NFL stadium. Furthermore, in the opening week alone, there were 5.6 million matches played online, which Moore says "is the equivalent of over 21,000 NFL regular seasons." And while we know that number likely includes all the games that were merely started but never completed, it's still pretty damn impressive. As a side note, Moore said he's happy with the recent PS3 price cut, just because "we know titles like Madden and NCAA Football have always had a very strong base of fans on Sony hardware." ...not like Madden needs more help in the sales department, but even so, a lower price point on PS3 hardware benefits everyone.
So anyway, if you haven't yet gone online with Madden NFL 10, you're apparently missing out. Don't you want to get involved in one of the millions of matches...?
