Madden Sales Down Significantly This Year



It appears, on the surface at least, fans are no longer happy with the Madden status quo.

EA Sports reported sales of just over 1 million copies of Madden in its first week on store shelves. While EA was touting the success of Madden NFL 25, those sales numbers are down significantly from last year's number of 1.65 million in the same time span, a nearly 40% drop in sales.

The obvious culprit does seem to be many gamers are holding out for next-gen Madden, which makes a lot of sense. However, with incentive programs to upgrade to the next-gen game around and being touted by EA, it also does seem a large chunk of consumers simply are tired of Madden's current form and waiting for something new.

This puts even more pressure on the next-gen product to deliver a new and unique experience to the series, as fans are likely looking for that with the new game. However, for a year at least, it is likely the next-gen version of Madden will be a huge seller when the new consoles hit store shelves in mid to late November.

The less than stellar reviews probably didn't help matters.

LoL how surprising, I doubt new system numbers will be greatly above those being reported to the hardcore audience.

I am so happy about this maybe the NFL will open the brand up to other developers. So happy folks didn't get caught up in the EA hype machine.

Great news.

Just too bad there were Sunday Ticket and $45 trade in promotions or the numbers would have been much, much worse.

Sunday Ticket definitely helped sell a lot of copies of games that instantly got put on Craigslist and Ebay b/c the people wanted nothing to do w/ the actual game

Would love to see 2K get back in the game. Madden 25 could be a good game if I didnt feel so underpowered on defense. Presentation is still bad. Owner mode is addicting. I just hope they dont give up on this game and not release some patches to fix the issues. I have no plans to get a next gen system until the spring and by then I wont be playing Madden.
