Boom Blox Sells Over 450,000 Since Launch

By Aaron Linde and Chris Faylor, Jul 29, 2008 2:21pm PDT Following a not so impressive first month on retail shelves, EALA and Steven Spielberg's physics-driven puzzle action title Boom Blox has sold over 450,000 copies since launch, publisher Electronic Arts revealed today.

The news arose from an investor conference call held this afternoon, in which EA CFO Eric Brown said the title met the publisher's expectations since its launch in early May.

The company did not specify whether the figure accounts for sales solely in North America or units moved worldwide. Boom Blox was released in Europe a few days after its North American debut, and made its debut in Japan earlier this month.

However, that figure is likely worldwide, as that moving that amount in North America would have caused the title to appear among NPD's ten best-selling games at least once during the past few months.

Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello added that the title "continues to sell well."
