Some Sales Data For Left 4 Dead, Rock Band 2, Mirror's Edge & Dead Space

It wasn't all bad news and leaky product announcements during yesterday's EA conference call. Some good came of it. Like positive sales figures for some of EA's riskier titles.

Like Left 4 Dead, whose physical copies EA published, and which went on to sell 1.8 million copies. Or Rock Band 2, which sold 1.9 million units despite it's stupid, staggered release schedule (this data is until December 31, with the popular Wii version having only just come out).

The even riskier propositions - EA's wholly-original IP - did OK as well. They're hardly what you'd call a raging success, but both Mirror's Edge and Dead Space managed to sell over a million copies each.

For reference, EA's top-selling title for the quarter was FIFA 09, which moved an astonishing 7.8 million copies. Or more than those other four games combined.


    Dead Space was BRILLIANT, it's too bad it didn't do that great. It was so tense and exciting (once you were past the scarehouse-of-horrors first chapter), with brilliantly executed ideas (vacuum!!!) and excellent 'scarier when there AREN'T enemies visible' atmosphere.

    Shame on EA for releasing it when they did. Shame.

    I'm so glad to see that Mirror's Edge and Dead Space did well. We can has sequels nao?

    For me i had great fun with dead space especially where you were in the zero g areas or when you're depserately trying to aim a shot whilst in the grip of a tentacle, sequel would be good. Mirrors edge got really annoying and boring and i returned it before finishing, but ill still suppourt it as im interested in seeing where they take the tech behind it.
