Mass Effect 3 "Biggest Entertainment Launch of 2012"

EA announces they have shipped 3.5 million units of Mass Effect 3 in the first week of availability of the action/RPG sequel, saying this makes it "the first pop culture event and the biggest entertainment launch of 2012." According to VentureBeat, EA estimates the game sold 890,000 units in North America in its first 24 hours of release.

Calling a March release the "biggest launch of the year" is something I'd expect to read in The Onion...

I'm about 20 hours in to the story (and nearly the same amount of time spent so far in MP) and I'm liking it, but it's basically the same situation as Dragon Age II -- they churned out a very ambitious game in two years, so the overall quality suffered significantly, compared to its predecessor. If anyone still had any doubts about BioWare losing control of their product since becoming EA property, surely they've been put to rest now. Still on the high side as far as being a developer that makes games worth playing, but submitting to big-time corporate scheduling has taken away their capability to create something truly great. And unfortunately, selling millions of copies the first week tells them that the formula has worked out just fine...

And this doesn't make you think BiowarEA is still in control? Please. They lost control at day one. They could never make a Baldur's Gate again. Not even close. It's just been a long slow demise. I appreciate the game for what it is, but it's still just schlock.
