'FIFA 13' causes '12% of recent break-ups in UK'

FIFA 13 has contributed to around 12% of break-ups in the past month, according to a new UK survey.

1,124 newly-single people were polled about why their relationship of one year or less ended.

More than one in ten revealed that the latest in EA's football game franchise was a contributing factor.

Of those 12%, 43% said that one person in the relationship was guilty of spending more time with FIFA 13 than their partner, and 87% identified the person playing the game as male.

Elsewhere, the most popular reason for a break-up in the past month was infidelity at 36%. (FIFA 13, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't understand how Rman's post was marked for bad language, I thought putting *'s meant you could pretty much say anything as long as it's not offensive.

Perhaps he should have censored the word s*ccer, that's a horribly offensive word, it's football.

Its not just Fifa, its all video games.

If you are married, you shouldn't be gaming more than a few hours a week. Set aside a Sunday afternoon for just gaming, then the wife should be happy.
