Superman Returns fails to soar, EA unscathed

ouchQA testers neglected to tell EA Tiburon that Superman Returns: The Videogame just isn't any fun. Or, maybe they did, and EA just assumed the brand would sell itself, regardless of game quality. Wrong.

According to Bank of America research analyst Michael Savner, "sales of Superman Returns have been disappointing." But even a 'Super-dud' failed to crush EA's spirits. That's because Madden and FIFA are expected to gross $242 million in sales for the quarter. Hence, company share prices are up.
