EA's Latest Titles Like The "1 Million" Sales Plateau
EA has released some sales figures for several of their most important games of the past year and perhaps unsurprisingly, many have surpassed - or are at least flirting with - the 1 million sales mark.
First up is Battlefield 1943, because according to the publisher, it has now become the most popular downloadable title in history with 1.5 million units sold. That number apparently tops all others in the realm of the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace, which is fitting because it's available on both online services and it's pretty darn good. In addition, EA has reported that Mass Effect 2 has sold 1.6 million units, and the multiplatform success of Army of Two: The 40th Day has resulted in 1 million+ units across the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PSP. Last but not least is Dante's Inferno, which is evidently closing in on 1 million sold on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PSP; this one garnered plenty of fans early on and now, maybe we should start turning our attention towards a sequel... And looking down the road, EA should have a few more million-selling blockbusters, as Dead Space 2, Crysis 2 and Medal of Honor are all looming large for the tail end of 2010. Oh yeah, and The Sims 3 for consoles, which we have to assume will be crazy popular.
So, which of these big games have you played and which do you plan to play? There are plenty of great titles on store shelves these days and EA, love 'em or hate 'em, has plenty to offer.
