It Sold A Lot
It's not much of a surprise, but FIFA 12 has sold very well. In fact, EA's buzzword-heavy behemoth has written itself into the record books, becoming the label's best launch ever. With 3.2 million copies shipped in just under a week, FIFA 12 shattered past records - set by itself, of course - according to "internal estimates". EA hasn't disclosed whether it's counting sales recorded on iOS devices, which are nearing a million.
"FIFA 12 is a stunning achievement by our team at EA Canada," enthused EA Sports VP Andrew Wilson. Us, too. Who knew Canadians could make such good football games? "he massive FIFA online community has overwhelmingly connected to the new live services in the game, including EA SPORTS Football Club, and we intend to keep them engaged all season long as FIFA 12 follows the heartbeat of the football season." FIFA 12 sits just behind Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops as the biggest launch in UK history. [Eurogamer]
