You may have heard about Tiger Wood’s recent marital problems and the subsequent fallout he’s had with endorsement deals from a number of different companies. While his image may be marred, his games are still selling strong. Not only is EA Sports standing by the embattled golfer, sales of Woods’ game franchises are holding up well.
Says EA Sports president Peter Moore, “We’ve looked actually at the overall franchise for calendar year 2008 and 2009 and are slightly up when we look at all platforms for the Tiger franchise. Despite what has gone on in his personal life, we’ve seen no negative impact on sales.” Add to this the fact that two new games, Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online and Tiger Woods PGA Tour ’11, are scheduled for release later this year, and it appears that while the golfer may be losing sleep about his marital status, his game sales are doing just fine.
