As a reminder VGChartz does not track digital sales. So this figure is for retail only.

Only 74% are from the US? Didn't realize anyone else was even interested.

I`d assume Canada make up most of the rest, which would kind of make sense.

I have never played a madden game, is it true they are all the same game every year or what things do they change for each yearly iteration?

That's a massive dip from 2004. Maybe the NFL should take notice and put an end to this exclusive rights garbage.

Wouldn`t be surprised if they get paid the same regardless though.
