Madden remains EA's MVP

by Paul Jay, CBC News Online

You have to hand it to the people at Electronic Arts. Every year they put out a new version of the same game and every year they knock one out of the park. Well, not the baseball video games. We're talking about the Madden franchise, which once again topped 2006 for total sales.

Gamespot has a story on the final sales numbers from 2006, and Madden 07 for the PS2 tops the list with 2.8 million units sold.

It's followed by New Super Mario Bros. for Ninetendo's DS, Gears of War for the XBox 360 and two more PS2 games, Kingdom Hearts II and Guitar Hero II.

Madden 07 for the XBox also made the list as the number nine selling game.
