Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 Sets Franchise Sales Record
People sure were excited for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters — or at least, that’s what the sales numbers seem to indicate.
EA Sports is sending around a press release touting the fact that PGA Tour 12 had more first-week sales than any other game in the franchise. According to the company’s estimates, 225,000 copies of PGA Tour 12 were sold during the game’s release week in North America, up 17 percent from PGA Tour ’08, the previous record holder. The latest in the Tiger Woods franchise hit store shelves on March 29.
The Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 app for the iPhone and iPad also sold really well, it seems, garnering the Top Grossing App position in Apple’s App Store for the first week it was available.
Some other notable numbers:
- More than 7 million PGA Tour 12 games have been played so far to date.
- Console players have already logged time equal to about 2,515 PGA Tour Seasons in online tournaments.
- Players have taken more than 184 million shots, earned 1.5 million Achievements and Trophies, and completed 12 million “course mastery objectives.”
