EA: Boom Blox approaches 500,000 sold

To bomb or not to bomb, that is the question. In Boom Blox’s case, popular opinion said it was a failure.

Pundits still stuck in the old 1990’s video game mindset said it was an epic fail when it didn’t sell 1,000,000,000,000 units in its first week, and then EA fired back, saying it was pleased with the modest sales, and expected more in the future.

Now the publisher is more than pleased, pleased as punch even, as it announced Tuesday the plucky Steven Spielberg branded title has sold 450,000 units to date (courtesy of EA’s quarterly conference call). Infendo saw it coming a while back, so why is everyone else so surprised? Personally, I will never again cite anything Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson says, ever again.
