Report: Tiger video game sets sales mark
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.
Electronic Arts announced Wednesday that its new Tiger Woods video game set a franchise record for first-week sales, USA Today reported.
The golf simulation game, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, sold about 225,000 copies in its first week of release, topping the previous franchise record holder, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08.
The biggest addition to this year's edition is that the game includes the historic Augusta National course, where the Masters is played. The new edition was released March 29.
The record-setting debut is a strong rebound from the 2010 version of the Tiger Woods video game. Amid news of his marital infidelity, sales of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 dropped 68 percent compared to the previous year.
