Mass Effect 3 US sales at 1.5 million, analyst reckons

Mass Effect 3‘s sales in March added up to more than 1.5 million copies, Cowen Research analyst Doug Creutz has told investors in a research note.

Referring to US sales, he said: “We believe that EA’s Mass Effect 3 likely performed quite well with over 1.5 million in estimated console unit sales during March.”

Day one US sales alone, according to EA itself, added up to nearly 900,000 copies. The publisher’s also said that 3.5 million units were shipped for the game’s worldwide launch.

In the UK, the game also managed to break franchise records by selling more units in week one than Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 did combined.

All arrows point towards the stars for the space franchise then, yeah?
