Homefront sells 375k on day one in US

THQ "delighted", "fulfilling re-orders".

THQ's new FPS franchise Homefront sold 375,000 copies during its first day on sale in the US, the publisher has announced.

"We are delighted with first day sales for Homefront and are already fulfilling re-orders for the game from multiple retailers," said CEO Brian Farrell.

That's a convincing repost to news yesterday that THQ's share price had plunged more than 20 per cent following middling reviews of the shooter.

"Homefront's excellent multiplayer experience, combined with our commitment to dedicated servers, make this a must-have purchase for gamers," added THQ's core games chief Danny Bilson.

"Due to the strong and growing demand for Homefront's multiplayer, we continue to add dedicated server capacity. We are confident that the large-scale multiplayer maps featuring 32 players, vehicles, infantry and drones, will continue to be a major draw for the huge audience of FPS gamers looking for a new experience over the coming months."

The game lands on these shores this Friday for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
