Mass Effect 3, our review code for which we only managed to coax into life last night, is selling quite well. Or, at least that’s what EA’s John Riccitiello is saying in his latest estimates.
Which, as you’d imagine, are both bullish and impressively high.
Venturebeat says that Riccitiello is “happy” about the sales, which are apparently around about 890,000 – a figure that shifted in just 24 hours and only includes the US.
“We anticipated it doing well, so we’re happy,” he said.
The game’s day-one DLC is also doing really well for the publisher, with retailer GameStop claiming a 40% tie rate in their shops.
The game’s out today in the UK.
