Not absolutely, no, though it is very likely. It is a quarterly report so I'm assuming the figures were for the full release quarter for ME2, EA really ought to specify if they were not.

Maybe ME2 also started off with a burst. Also, ME2 was missing PS3 at launch.
ME2 started with a burst, certainly. I'd still reckon the third of the time is probably accurate even including later PS3 sales, the ratio for ME3 sales was 4:1 in the favour of 360 so taking that as a guide it's still likely to end up less than 1.3 M on NPD implies for worldwide sales.

120k sales for ME3PC retail too for whoever was asking. 1.3 M all formats (ex DD) vs 1.18 for PS360, since both sets of figures have been releases. That would suggest maybe as much as 500k total on PC, assuming (a big assumption this time) USPC retail represents about 1/4 of the total PC market inc RoW and DD.
