How successful were the Burger King advergames?

Short answer: extraordinary successful. Pocketbike Racer, Big Bumpin and Sneak King (my personal favorite) sold a staggering total of 3.2 million copies. Burger King benifited from the deal too with a 40% increase in profits over the year. While that statistic does not take Burger King's other aggressive advertising initiatives into account, sales of the game alone forced people to walk into the home of the Whopper to purchase them along with a value meal. I admit the tactic worked on me. I despise eating fast food, but I happily strolled into Burger King to buy Sneak King.

    Same here, I never eat Burger King, but made the stop and picked up all 3 games

    I missed out on the opportunity to purchase the games because I didn’t own a 360 at the time.

    I hear they were great for extra % on trade-in values at the local game store though.

    very true, and I think Gamestop actually sells them used for 3.99 each (the original purchase price)

    If I may ask, were did you get this information? Is there a rapport or something of this advergaming campaign?
