We know that FIFA is a huge franchise now and compared to PES, which is its only competitor right now. EA Europe, VP Keith Ramsdale told Gamerzines that they had a record sell through for FIFA 12.
“FIFA went out just a couple of weekends ago. We had record pre-orders and record sell-through.”
“And when you look at Pro Evolution Soccer versus FIFA, only five years ago in the UK PES was outselling FIFA. On its first weekend like-for-like we’ve just outsold PES by 25 times.
“That’s a sign of the momentum and the fanbase and community behind FIFA, and let’s be clear, an absolutely kick-arse game. It’s unbelievable.”
FIFA 12 had sold 3.2 million copies till now, as reported by EA. It remains to be seen how much they will manage to sell compared to FIFA 11. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
