Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Sells 5 Million Copies, Electronic Arts Details Software Sales

EA DICE's first-person shooter Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has sold five million copies since it hit PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2010, Electronic Arts said today.

EA Restoring Retiring Players to Madden Rosters

Madden fans your cry was heard. After the removal of players who'd announced their retirement at the end of the season in the final Madden roster update, many Madden players, self included, were beside themselves. The move came out of nowhere and for a game intended to represent the season made little sense. Those changes, along with the many more to come in the off-season, will be reflected in next year's Madden.

Avid sports video game commentator pastapadre offered a rallying point in a poll asking for user opinions on the matter. Seeing results that ran 80% against the decision, EA Sports has recanted and plans to restore the retiring players to their rosters in a final final update. Read more »

Madden NFL 10 Predicts Saints Super Bowl Win

The New Orleans Saints will defeat the Indianapolis Colts 35-31 at Super Bowl XLIV, according to this year's EA Sports prediction.

As in years past, the company loaded the team's current rosters and player statistics into its most recent Madden-branded video game--in this case, Madden NFL 10--for the simulation.

These simulations have a surprisingly reliable track record, having correctly predicted five of the last six Super Bowl outcomes. And while 2008 was the odd year out--the Patriots were incorrectly prophesied to beat the Giants--the company boasts that last year's simulation was spot on "down to the final score and individual player statistics."
