We're not entirely clear on how all this cultural bomb terminology works. Last month, after we'd heard that Boom Blox
had toppled with 60,000 in North American sales
, we were more than willing to wittily label the game as "a bomb." However, EA's post-earnings
conference call has now revealed that Boom Blox
has sold 450,000 units since launch (no region specified). Since it's no longer a bomb, do we imply that EA and Steven Spielberg's collaboration -- considered by many reviewers to be the
bomb -- has been defused? That doesn't sound like a good thing.
