EA Sports: NCAA Football 12 moves 700,000 copies in two weeks
EA Sports has announced NCAA Football 12 sold over 700,000 copies on PS3 and Xbox 360 during its first two weeks at retail.
Compared to NCAA Football 11, that’s sales jump of 17 percent, and is the largest first two weeks sum in the franchise’s history.
“We’re extremely pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response to NCAA Football 12 by both critics and college football fans alike,” said Peter Moore, president of EA Sports. “The team at Tiburon has created the ultimate college football experience which is evident at retail where the game is flying off the shelves.”
EA also provided some interesting stats for the title as well:
- More than 870,000 online game sessions have been played – the equivalent of approximately 600 NCAA FBS college football regular seasons.
- More than 50,000 Online Dynasties have been created, consisting of more than 100,000 user-controlled teams.
- Fans have created more than one million custom teams using the TeamBuilder website, the online create-a-school feature.
EA’s expected to report its Q1 financials tonight, so look forward to hearing more about this, and more, later on this evening.
NCAA Football 12 was released, fittingly enough, on July 12.
