Say what you want about the sport, but Americans certainly love their football. Of course other parts of the world certainly helped Madden NFL 13 hit an exorbitantly high number of sales within just a week too. EA Sports has revealed that the title has sold 1.65 million copies since its release last week which happens to be a record for the franchise this generation.
It is worth noting that NFL 13’s opening week did 8% better than Madden NFL 12’s launch which only sold 1.4 million copies in one week. EA has also reported that Madden NFL 13 saw an impressive boost to its online community compared to last year, with 31% more online games played during the opening week.
