EA’s Madden and NFS: Carbon top US, UK sales

They really do.

They may be a magnet for bad publicity, but it certainly can’t be denied that their franchises sell well. Two of Electronic Arts‘ games have reached rather high sales, making EA games a high seller on two continents.

In the United States, EA SportsMadden NFL ’07 has sold over 5 million copies across the different consoles. As a result of these figures, a press release EA sent out, they proclaimed Madden to be “North America’s most popular game of 2006”.

Over in the United Kingdom, it’s their underground racing game that’s taking up the Electronic Arts banner. Gamasutra reports Need for Speed: Carbon as the new leader of the pack by pushing another EA title, FIFA ’07, out of the top spot and into second place.

With best-selling games in two countries, as well as additional games in their lineup in the top ten lists, EA should be quite pleased with their results this year. This is one of EA’s best years in the business, making them a company to watch out for yet again in 2007.
