Mass Effect 3 sold 890,000 copies in N.A. after launch Final chapter of BioWare's popular franchise got off to a great start.
In North America, the game sold 890,000 copies following its launch, according to Electronic Arts chief executive John Riccitiello. He revealed the sales figure at the Wedbush Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference in New York late last week.

International figures for the title were not disclosed, but will undoubtedly be substantial.

In addition to strong launch sales for the title, GameSpot also reported a tie ratio of 40 percent for customers who purchased a DLC download code. This tie ratio at the register is the highest in EA's history, according to Riccitiello.

The game has received generally positive reviews from critics and gaming outlets, though there has been many complaints about the ending filling Internet forums.

That's a lot of $ @ $60 a pop. I heard that this game released DLC the same day the game itself was released. If DLC is not included in the game it belongs in the shitter. Come on, day 1 DLC? I will wait until the GOTY edition comes out @ $30. I did say that about the first 2 though and haven't played any of them.
