  • NBA 2K16 shattering franchise sales records
    Posted October 2nd, 2015 at 10:00 am 49 Comments »
    2K Sports announced today that NBA 2K16 has set a new franchise record with four million copies "sold-in" after just one week of release. That means 2K has shipped four million - a stunning number - but it will take some time before retailers have "sold through" them. Digital sales of 2K16 have doubled compared to 2K15 and the number of online games that have been played have tripled year-over-year. Both are clear indications of the strength of the game's launch. Not only was anticipati...

    Posted July 21st, 2014 at 11:30 am 31 Comments »
    EA Sports UFC has struggled in terms of review scores and word of mouth and now that the sales numbers have released the impact of the poor start to the new franchise for the company can be further examined. First month sales for UFC combined for only 278K copies which explains the price drop that went wide last week. THQ's UFC series took a nosedive following the first release in 2009 - something partially attributed to the lack of roster turnover, competition from high profile games, an...

    Concern over the future of the college football series from EA Sports has not only stemmed from the likeness lawsuit or recent loss of NCAA licensing but also sales that have for the most part stagnated over the course of the generation rather than show growth as the install bases expanded.

    Posted April 18th, 2013 at 7:00 pm 28 Comments »
    After peaking in sales with MLB 10 SCEA's The Show series has declined modestly every year since. Though it faces essentially no competition on the PS3 and the quality of the franchise in terms of reputation remains stellar, grumblings of a lack of advancement and questionable decisions like not offering demos have been heard and ultimately may have hurt. Perception could be altered with the PS4 offering next spring but the brand has taken a slight hit in the meantime even with MLB 13 being ...
