Medal Of Honor Sells 1.5 Million, EA Gives Away DLC
The NPD Group doesn't report exact figures for specific software or hardware products anymore, so the it's up to the publishers.
Well, if your game is doing well, wouldn't you wanna brag? According to GameSpot, EA has revealed that Medal of Honor has already surpassed 1.5 million in worldwide sales...and it only took five days of availability to hit that number. It sold especially well in the UK where it topped the Gfk-ChartTrack list. Furthermore, EA has offered details on new benefits for those holding the necessary Online Pass: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners who bought the game (or bought it used and paid $10 for that Pass) will be able to grab a new Clean Sweep mode for multiplayer come November 2. It's a "team-based elimination mode that will be playable on two all-new maps (Bagram Hangar and Kyber Caves) and two redesigned maps (Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins)." And yeah, it's free. After suffering through a lot of backlash for including the Taliban as a playable side in the multiplayer action, EA removed the reference and opted to call the enemy the "opposing force."
The game has also seen some lukewarm reception from the critics. But none of this seems to have had a negative impact on sales, which we kinda like, 'cuz we still say this reboot is significantly underrated.
