Fifa 12 Sets A New Sports Game Record

EA says its latest iteration of the FIFA franchise has already become the biggest release in the history of sports games and the number one videogame launch of the year so far.

According to the recent figures gathered by the company,

“based on internal estimates” since its September 27 debut in North America and September 30 worldwide, FIFA 12 has so far sold an estimated 3.2 million units across all consoles worldwide, “making it the biggest launch in the history of sports videogames and the biggest videogame launch of 2011 to date.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Awesome. I'm glad I bought it. It's a great game. Except for the hard on the game has for Barcelona! lmao

Absolutely agree. I guess there's going to be consequences like that when you focus on 'realism' rather than 'balance'.

Usually I just roll my eyes when sports games go around boasting about their sales, but this year they actually deserve to be proud. Amazing changes to both FIFA12 and NBA 2K12 and well worth the purchases.

Not for long! I think Battlefield 3 might beat that record. Then Modern Warfare 3 will top it as well.

would be impressive but i wouldn't hold my breathe. Soccer is around the world. fps may be too but i don't think they are as popular as soccer is.

I think the chance of Fifa keeping the title of biggest launch of 2011 is extremely low.

Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, and alot more big games just around the corner

I honestly cannot wait for MW3, especially with the redemption video they released :o
