Those numbers (at least as far as Bioshock is concerned) sound a bit off. Bioshock has been and continues to be a smashing success for 2K. GameDaily is usually a pretty reliable source and they quote 490K for Bioshock on the X360 in August alone (based on -once again usually reliable- NPD stats). The game was released on August 23, wasn't it? So that's 490K in just a little over a week. That's pretty damned impressive. Also, I think it's only natural that it isn't such a huge success as Madden which is based on the most popular US sport. That's bordering on an apple vs oranges comparison to compare Bioshock to Madden.
