EA Sports Active Sells Oodles, Getting Expansion Pack

With less than two weeks of sales under its belt, EA Sports Active has already sold more than 600,000 copies, Electronic Arts said today.

The personal training game for the Wii went on sale May 19.

"We're delighted by the overwhelming response to EA SPORTS Active," said Peter Moore, President, EA SPORTS. "This is, by far, the most successful launch of any Wii title in EA history, and even more encouraging is that our second week sales worldwide were as strong as our first week. Not only are we off to a great start at retail, but the feedback from people who are getting off the couch, breaking a sweat and using EA SPORTS Active to support living a healthier lifestyle, is that it is changing their lives."

This holiday EA Sports plans to expand the game, releasing a new expansion pack for EA Sports Active. The pack will add more challenge and variety with interactive circuit workouts featuring 30 brand new activities and exercises that target the upper and lower body, as well as cardio.

The pack will also add an emphasis on core exercises including curl ups, crunch & punches, and a warm up/cool down feature. Sports activities will also include step aerobics, an obstacle course, squash and water skiing, while a new emphasis on combinations will populate the upper and lower body exercises.

The game will have new settings in the tropics and feature the Six-Week Challenge – another step in the journey towards better health and fitness with new daily workouts that ramp up in intensity each week.

No release date or price has been announced for the pack.
