Posted By | On 21st, Sep. 2012

NHL 13 released a week back, and according to internal EA numbers, it’s broken franchise records already. The worldwide sell through for NHL 13 in its first week is up 9 percent globally.

Other stats (as detailed by EA):

  • Since the launch of NHL 13, fans have created just under 50,000 of their own alternate versions of the NHL through the new GM Connected feature in NHL 13.
  • During the first week, the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins were the most popular teams used across all game modes in NHL 13.
  • Fans have played over 3.7 million online games, or the equivalent of over 350 games a minute.
  • Fans have scored just under 5 million goals in the first week, dwarfing the 244 goals scored during the first week of the real 2011-2012 NHL regular season.

“NHL 13 has incredible new gameplay innovation, and it’s the most connected NHL title we’ve ever created,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President of EA SPORTS. “We’re proud of this year’s game, and we’re extremely happy to see our fans worldwide embracing it in record numbers.”
