Mass Effect 2 Sells Over Two Million Copies

Mass Effect 2 Sells Over Two Million Copies

Now, the press release says that it sold two million copies in the first week, but the first week won’t be over until Monday night.  So, I’m going to hop on the assumption train and say that the game sold over two million copies.  Why EA jumped the gun on this press release is anyone’s guess.  I can see if it sold this many copies in 24 hours…but five days?  Why send it out after five days and nail down the entire week’s sales to two million?  Perhaps by Tuesday morning it will have moved another million units?  Wouldn’t that sound more impressive?

Needless to say, this sci-fi action shooter (notice I left “RPG” out of that description?) is a hell of a lot of fun and has an epic story, amazing writing, art direction and dialog, it’s no surprise that it flew off the shelves faster than it takes Commander Shepherd to put a bullet in your ass if you piss her off.  Just like with Dragon Age: Origins, I am definitely pleased to give Bioware (and, begrudgingly, EA) a collective pat on the back for dishing out such an amazing piece of art.  Now, I must get back to scanning for minerals.  Look for my review in the coming weeks.
