EA has disclosed that its very pleased with FIFA 18 sales on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo France says that it has sold 73,000 units and this doesn’t include digital sales. It was a “test match” for the Switch, and the test is passed
You have to take into account what these publishers and developers actually forcast their games to sell for each system based on popularity, install and other factors. Of course EA isn't going to measure their success of a game on Switch compared to say Xbox or PS4.
it's sold 70K in Japan alone according to media create.
The news isn't that Fifa sold, but that EA and Nintendo was mentioned in the same sentence without anything negative.
Yes, my friend....totally agree with you there.
Europe is carrying that FIFA Switch push
EU is carrying every FIFA game. It's all they fucking buy
Not an issue for me or anyone. People like football and FIFA 18 is a good football game.
What do you expect, Football is the biggest sport in the world. The only place they don't really play it is in America.
Edmix where are you buddy? Another game sells well on the Switch, a third party game at that. This is the third or four times now. What is your excuse now?
I don't see him. I mean Skyrim, Doom, FIFA, LA Noire and RE all sold well on the Switch.
LA Noire sold well?
I'm glad EA are happy with the results. Now we can have loot boxes on the go!
Can we get the NHL on the Switch now? I'd love to have a hockey game on the go again, but with how little it sells it'll probably never happen, maybe the UFC has a better chance?
What i find amazing is that for first time ever Nintendo sold the most with fifa in Japan, Sony started strong but had no legs, but i think after this week mediacreate numbers it tied or pass the ps4 version i can't remember at the moment i do think EA knew it would have so much legs to pass ps4
I hope this means madden and nhl come to the switch. We need real football on the go not the euro thing they do lol
If "real" football is the game you play with your hands, and is almost exclusively played in the states, then sure, we do need that on the go.
