FIFA 16 Has Biggest Launch in Franchise History
That’s the power of women players!
FIFA 16 continued the series’ longstanding tradition of posting insane, record breaking numbers, that ensure that the games are a perennial fixtures in the sales charts worldwide. According to EA, over 1.5 billion hours were spent by players playing the game, with 326 million matches played. That’s a frightening amount of time spent on the game- imagine just how many productive man-hours were lost!
FIFA 16 has posted great sales numbers worldwide (it continues to dominate UK sales charts, and it charted in the top 5 in the NPD sales charts), so this really should not come as a surprise to anyone. Nevertheless, the critical reception to FIFA 16 was decidedly muted, with not a lot of critics thinking that FIFA 16 stood up, in particular, to Konami’s PES 2016, which they preferred.
FIFA 16 is out now on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC, as well as out in some form for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii, PS Vita, iOS, and Android devices.
