Electronic Arts announced today that FIFA Soccer 13 has sold more than 4.5 million copies worldwide in its first five days on the market. According to the publisher, that makes it the highest-selling game launch of the year.
Not surprisingly, it was the best-selling game in 40 countries. The UK snatched up the lion's share of the soccer love, with 1.23 million sold in the first 48 hours alone according to GfK Chart-Track estimates.
EA also boasts that it hosted the busiest day of online gaming in the company's history, at roughly 800,000 simultaneous players. It's hosted more than 66 million online games so far, for a total of about 600 million minutes. That's about a millennium of total playtime. Yes, the world certainly loves its high-octane, low-scoring action.

I stopped caring, It's always the same really, year after year.
You can't even say they have improved the graphics.
Until next gen!!
It's not the same actually. I buy FIFA every second year and this is a vast improvement over FIFA 11. And considering how much value you get for the full price - deep layered seasons, Ultimate Team, On-line clubs and play etc. etc. - its probably one of the better value games out there. No 8 hour campaign BS. As much as I hate the re-hash annual launches, the FIFA franchise does it very very well.
