NCAA Football 12 Off to a Rollicking Start at the Box Office
EA Sports has announced that NCAA Football 12 is rocking and rolling at retail, having sold a whopping 700,000 copies in its first two weeks on store shelves. They also say that’s the fastest start for NCAA Football on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
And it’s a not-insignificant bump; The current top NCAA Football earner this generation is NCAA Football 10, but it only sold 550,00 in its first two weeks, and last year’s game, which sold less overall, also had about that amount in the first two weeks. It’d be a stretch to think that it could top NCAA Footbal 07 to be the top earner in franchise history, though; that game rolled in 2.5 million copies sold across three platforms.
I’m going to credit this year’s bump with Mark Ingram making the Cover. Bama fans, I’m guessing, just couldn’t resist.
