Fifa 13 sells 7.4 million units in its first 4 weeks on sale.
The cod of europe :D
its football, the greatest sport in the world.. you know
Thats bcuz football is the king of all sports watch and play in every country of the world(the real football the one where u use ur foot to play and not that american rugby )
not the king in USA not even close.
Yeah u r rite but thats 1 country but in the other 180 countrys of the world is the king just check theres more people watchin a single game of barcelona vs r.madrid than the super bowl lol and us not even a final game or something important (112 millions for the superbowl 400 millions barcelona vs madrid game)
America is not the world.
@byram1982 Where did you get those numbers? You realize that is VERY wrong, right? The Super Bowl is the most watched event in the WHOLE WORLD. It has over a Billion people watching it every year. Look it up. That's why ads for it cost more than anyother.
Americans forget there's other countries outside the states
no we just dont care. this is not a popular sport here never was never will be.
And neither does Canada, aside from the foreigners.
I find "soccer" or "football" as you call it to be annoying. The fans are just so damn annoying. That, and they all act like idiots.
I've been struggling for about 5 minutes to find the words to reply
You mistyped... FIFA 12 version 1.5
I'm an American, and honestly, I don't like soccer. I admit, perhaps I just can't appreciate the finer points of the game.
Well I'm the same way whit american rugby i cant stand to watch a game cuz is so boring they stop every 5 seconds.move the ball 5 seconds later bam stop and again
@slinky...dream on! The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ was shown in every single country and territory on Earth, including Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, generating record-breaking viewing figures in many TV markets around the world. The in-home television coverage of the competition reached over 3.2 billion people around the world, or 46.4 per cent of the global population, based on viewers watching a minimum of over one minute of coverage. This represents an eight per cent rise on the number of viewers recorded during the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™.
Unsurprisingly the competition’s most-watched match was the final between Spain and the Netherlands, which reached 619.7 million in-home viewers based on those watching at least 20 consecutive minutes of coverage. This figure, however, rises to 909.6 million viewers based on watching over one minute and is likely to have surpassed one billion when out-of-home viewers are included. Indeed, all the figures cited do not include people watching out-of-home at the FIFA Fan Fests and other public viewing venues, as well as in pubs, bars, restaurants, clubs, hotels, or even online and via mobile handsets.
Final numbers show the game averaged a mammoth 111.3 million viewers, making Super Bowl XLVI the most-watched show in TV history. As shown above this must be US TV history...sorry folk US does not = world.
Sorry but its hard for me to take the game seriously when its modelled after a game 5 years old play on the play ground. it's kick ball for semi adults. Soccer or football which is better? WEll When football players start falling down and pretending to be hurt because they cant cut it at playing the game let me know. How many "football" soccer games have we had this year where some well known player or team spent more time faking injuries and falls than actually playing the game.. There is an actual game there in soccer right? it's hard to tell from the grown children grabbing themselves and falling over if the ball brushes by them Quarterback gets sacked by the entire defensive line... Stands back up and runs the next play. A Soccer player gets brushed by a defender and falls to the ground requiring a 10 minute break..... Really people actually think Soccer is better?
I think it's funny this debate is still going on. As an American, I DO prefer OUR football- not a game where the ball is moved directly by your feet, for the most part, but a game decided BY feet, in your ability to move the ball downfield(a 300-ft field)- but I also understand the allure of the OTHER football. For myself, I prefer the strategy and pacing of football over soccer. I prefer the physical nature of it, the aura of imposing your will upon someone else. I remember all the times people called football players wusses for wearing pads, but there are no pro soccer or rugby players that would want to take on a professional American football player WITHOUT those pads. There's a reason why nobody's ever been paralyzed playing soccer. That out of the way, it's not a surprise to see FIFA sell as much as it does. Soccer IS the most popular sport in the world(hard to say the "best, though).
