Madden Scores in Sales

Madden 12

Madden has always been a huge seller in the video game universe, and this year is no exception.  EA has reported that sales of Madden NFL 12 have exceeded 1.4 million across all platforms, which is 10 percent over the first week sales from last year.

I wonder if the strike had anything to do with this.  I know that as a football fan I was anxious for the strike to be over and get back to the gridiron.  While the camps were shortened, the league still got four preseason games in.  With kickoff coming this Thursday night, NFL fever is high.  Sounds like a perfect storm to me.

While not working as a Database Administrator, Keith Schleicher has been associated with Gaming Trend since 2003. While his love of video games started with the Telestar Alpha (a pong console with four different games), he trule started playing video games when he received the ill-fated TI-99/4A. While the Speech Synthesizer seemed to be the height of gaming, eventually a 286 AT computer running at 8/12 Hz and a CGA monitor would be his outlet for a while. Eventually he’d graduate to 386, 486, Pentium, and Athlon systems, building some of those systems while doing some hardware reviews and attending Comdex. With the release of the Dreamcast that started his conversion to the console world. Since then he has acquired an NES, SNES, PS2, PS3, PSP, GBA-SP, DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One S, Gamecube, Wii, Switch, and Oculus Quest 2. While not playing video games he enjoys bowling, reading, playing board games, listening to music, and watching movies and TV. He originally hails from Wisconsin but is now living in Michigan with his wife and sons.
