Star Wars Battlefront Sells 12M?

A story from last week's Fortune has some speculation on Star Wars Battlefront sales numbers from professional speculator Michael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities. According to his estimates, EA sold six million copies of the new Star Wars action game in each of the past two months, leading to his conclusion that the game has generated approximately $660 million in revenue. They quote a different analyst pegging the number of copies sold as closer to 13 million, though how either of these estimates were calculated is not revealed. Thanks IGN.

Dark Horizons points out that while it might have sold COD numbers, it didn't make COD profits (BF making $650 million). So they were sold at a mark down. By contrast, Ghosts made $1 billion, and Blops 3 made $550 in 3 days.


Nin, their source is ign. Dark horizons has no more detail than blues post. And the average selling price was $55. That isn't as negative a picture as you're painting.
