Mass Effect 3 Sales Tops 1.3 Million in First Month

By April 15, 2012

Follow me on:

Market research firm NPD reported to Joystiq that Mass Effect 3 sold 1.3 million units in the US across all three major platforms. While that's nowhere near Call of Duty MW3 like numbers, it's still an impressive number and tops the video game charts for the month of March. This figure also only includes physical copies sold at retail outlets since NPD does not track digital downloads via EA's Origin.

Mass Effect 3 stumbled out of the gate a bit with some bad publicity from the day 1 release of the From Ashes DLC and the controversial anti-climatic ending, but that apparently hasn't hurt sales yet and a re-worked ending DLC will be out this summer.
