Re: Madden NFL 21 Sees Strong First Week Unit Sales up Nearly 20 Percent Year-Over-Ye

Honestly, I'm not surprised because more people at home meaning more potential sales.

Re: Week One Madden Sales up 20% vs. Last Year.

Yeah none of this is a surprise to me given the current world situation. People need a escape and even better if it comes in the form of video games and sports. I have my own opinions about people playing/not playing the game but that's not for this thread.

Well thatís disappointing. Apparently the shield sells no matter what despite negative reviews and all.

This is my first year not buying Madden since 1997.

All video games should be up 20% year over year then, right? I mean COVID...people not working...kids not in school impacts them all too.

Come on, the excuses need to stop. I have gotten hammered for a week trying to explain, based on conversations from inside EA, that the hashtags and review bombing aren't indicative of what "main street" thinks. Hardcore social media users are a microscopic piece of the entire Madden community. Living in an echo chamber is a serious issue today in general, and the hardcore Madden community is no different.

I love franchise, and the graphic they tweeted earlier showing engagement is up 49% is a good sign. I keep harping that people think it is money that is holding franchise back but it has been horrible engagement numbers actually doing that from what I have heard. If engagement is up this year it will help reaffirm their position in investing in the mode going forward.

Re: Week One Madden Sales up 20% vs. Last Year.

Well, congratulations to the executives who are gonna get a bonus check.

Edit: EA is great at PR. They are touting a 20% increase in “sell-through”, meaning retail copies sold as a ratio of what was shipped to retailers.

Last year, EA touted that more than half of first week sales were digital. Digital sales don’t apply to the retail sell-through counts. Between the pandemic and general user trend toward digital, the question is did EA ship as many copies as they normally do, and how does that factor into their formulas.

Either way, sales being up 20% year over year isn’t actually what they are claiming.
