When it comes to golf games, EA’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise is the undisputed king. And with PGA Tour 10 having been released this week on all major consoles, EA can expect to keep that crown firmly in place for at least another year. In addition, the premier golf franchise, like its titular golfing god, has unsurprisingly managed to rack up some serious earnings over the years as well.
The official numbers haven’t been released yet, but as GameSpot reports, NPD Group analyst Anita Frazier has said (via Twitter) that the Tiger Woods franchise has generated over $500 million since it began over ten years ago. Sure Grand Theft Auto IV managed to generate that same amount of money in its first week of release, but it’s still impressive, especially for a golf game.
Anyone think $500 millions sounds too high? Too low? About right?
