EA’s PS4 launch titles chalk up impressive figures in just five days.
Despite multiplayer errors that players back to the main menu screen for Battlefield 4, EA has reported some very impressive gameplay times on its games since releasing on the PlayStation 4 in North America on November 15th. According to publisher EA, Battlefield 4, Madden NFL 25, Need for Speed: Rivals and FIFA 14 have already seen over 140 million minutes of multiplayer gameplay, which translates to 2.3 million hours.

Or about 97,000 days of gameplay, created in just 5 days since the console released. It’s not too tough considering that Sony sold 1 million units in North America at launch within the first 24 hours and one of every PS4 game sold is published by EA. No wonder there have been 5 million game sessions.
As of now, DICE is currently at work on a patch to fix crashes plaguing the PS4 version. The above titles are also set to launch in Europe on November 29th and for the Xbox One on November 22nd. Will we see a variety of issues on Microsoft’s consoles as well? We’ll find out tomorrow.
