Well that article quoted above is hilarious. I agree it is U2's "fault" that it didn't sell a ton. They did give it away for free. So it seems that some people think that they should still be able to sell something to someone who already has it. :/
And it shows their complete lack of knowledge when it brings up the digital sales of the album. Yeah, its not for sale on iTunes you fools!! The lazy "journalist" syndrome is strong.

Crazily - NME, U2's arch enemy, had a post on Facebook saying U2 sells lots of albums even after giving it away for free...

I was shocked.

Ah, OK. My bad. I don't have iTunes, so I thought only the regular version would be on sale now.

News 3 days ago that U2 sold at least 20000 records in the first week in the Netherlands. Earning a golden record status for it.
No exact numbers found so far.

War and U218 sales increased and are charting again. This is so much fun to watch.

Certifications are based on the amount shipped to stores, not the amount sold over the counter. Still, it sounds like there is a lot of demand there...

Doing great in France. In it's second week it stays at number 1 and sells another 29,000 copies, total just over 50,000 from a week and a half.

Thanks for clearing that up, never knew.
The news articles all clearly state at least 20,000 went over the counter.

U2 already have a gold album in France and Netherlands, most likely in Croatia, Portugal and Spain.

Now they only need to sell 476,875 more copies to go gold in the US!!

I don't think SoI will ever sell 500,000 copies in the US, but that's just me.

It would have made sense to put it straight on sale on iTunes following the free giveaway period rather than remove it altogether for a month. At least they would have had some more digital sales and raised the album maybe a couple of placed up the charts.
