EA Sports' Madden NFL 13 breaks records in day-one retail sales and online usage

People still love Madden football. Madden NFL 13 got off to a hot start Tuesday, Aug. 28, breaking day-one retail sales and online usage, according to Electronic Arts. Sell-through was up 7 percent year-over-year with 900,000 units sold in the first 24 hours on HD platforms. Online usage for the franchise also scored a 28 percent jump in peak simultaneous users over last year's first day.

Cover boy and Detroit Lion superstar Calvin Johnson should be pleased.
