Update: Someone done a booboo. As pointed out in this BH tweet, “We were misquoted in the @IGNcom report yesterday. The average Heroes BUYER spends $20, not the average PLAYER. Not all players spend money.” Thanks, f1r3storm.

Original article:

According to this IGN piece, Battlefield Heroes now has more than 1.5 million players.

Great stuff. The bit EA’s interested in, however, is the fact that, on average, each player has now spent $20 on microtransactions.

Using out amazing Ubiquity calculator, we see that BH players have already spent $30 million on clothes and weapons.

Which is completely bonkers. Looks like Dave Perry was right. Hit the link for more stats.
