EA Sports golfing adventure Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 has shattered the series previous first week sales numbers. EA estimates have it selling 225k copies.
That was from March 29th to April 5th and it bested PGA Tour 08 by 17 percent. This is the first to include The Masters tournament. Over 7m games played so far.
Since March 29 users have played over 7 million games on all courses, which is the equivalent of 2,515 PGA Tour seasons in online tournaments. Over 184 million shots have been taken with 1.5 million achievements and trophies unlocked.
There has been controversy about this latest Tiger Woods title in that only 16 courses are included on disc with the rest (20 courses) as optional DLC purchases. The extra courses are 'misleadingly represented' in the game's career mode, prompting the purchases.
"We expected fans to be excited about the Masters and for sales to be up significantly. We're pleased that they are," said EA Sports' Peter Moore. "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters has earned rave reviews, and fans have played nearly two million rounds at Augusta National Golf Club during the first two weeks."
At least Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 doesn't have like others.
