Five-day global sales of EA's newest soccer sim catapult it to "biggest video game launch of 2012" after moving 1.23 million in first 48 hours in UK; grabs record for most simultaneous users of any EA game.
Footy fever has swept across the world. Electronic Arts announced today that FIFA 13 sold 4.5 million copies across the globe during its first five days, up 1.3 million units from FIFA 12's first-week sales of 3.2 million. The publisher claims this represents the "biggest video game launch of 2012" as well as the most lucrative sports game launch in history.
FIFA 13 released in the United Kingdom on Friday, September 28, and sold 1.23 million copies in that region during its first 48 hours. Last week, EA announced that first-day sales in North America surged 42 percent to 353,000 copies.
In addition to breaking sales figures, FIFA 13 also reached a new peak online usage milestone. According to EA data, September 30 was the busiest day for any title in EA history, with 800,000 users simultaneously playing the new soccer game.
FIFA 13 still has work to do if it wants to catch up to its predecessor, FIFA 12. That game has sold more than 10 million units as of February 2012. The entire FIFA series has sold over 100 million copies life-to-date.
It has been a historic year for EA Sports titles. First-week sales of Madden NFL 13 were up 8 percent to a high-definition era record 1.65 million, while NHL 13 skated to a franchise-best 491,000 in sales during its first week.

im shocked no one on gamespot has mentioned the amazing amount of issues surrounding this years fifa 13.. game crashing to desktop, fifa points not hsowing up on accounts, crashing when you buy/sell or loan players/ ultimate team being disabled because its completely broke... and more, with absoutely NOTHING being said by EA about anything... the EA fifa 13 forums are EXLPODING with complaints and refund requests...
I never play games that offer me something I can do in real life (without getting into trouble), so I never understand why sports games sell so much. Especially since one game doesn't seem much different than the one that was released last year. As odd as it may seem, my particular taste in video games isn't shared by everyone else.
@Hurvl If you dont understand footbal then why are you commenting on footbal.
The reason why people play is because its the biggest recreation in the world. Even bigger then gaming its self. Footbal is THE international sport of the world. I've waited for this game for 5 months since the footbal season stopt in europe. I just wanted to see how the players of my team have improved how the game has beed improved ect. This game is the most worth of all games because you can play it millions of time's with freinds any time you want, at least where i'm from fifa is just like a board game we play fifa together all night long
I went and bought this one... purely based on the fact that I skipped out on FIFA 12... the next FIFA game I will buy will be FIFA 15 lol
Oh great, this means a new round of FIFA hack is coming too, last one stolen $120 from my account, and left 3 achievements. Hell I don't even like sports game.
that mean they earn around 270.000.000 US$$$$ that a lot of money with my copy as well coz im going to buy it in few hours. damn FIFA!!!
Go FIFA - my son was going to wait until Xmas but then Game offered the 99p plus 2 selected trade in titles deal. He had 2 from the list ( quite a long list and not all new stuff either e.g. one of the ones he traded was Sims 3 ) so happy lad he is!!
Expanding the titles by including the KSA league is one added reason for people from ME to buy this game over PES which lack licence.
on the other hand the fame is amazing
soccer is the best sport in the world. FIFA is HORRIBLE game though it doesn't even WORK half the time. Screw EA ..
@DrKill09 Brits will persecute you for that comment
@DrKill09 First its not soccer, its football, and its the worlds most popular sport, and the most important sport in the world, only americans play that shit of American football, and if you thinks its for girls, then you crearly havent played, play one match against a real team and you will get violated....
I always see people say how bad our football is, and yet how come soccer players, who are supposed to be such great athletes, are only qualified to play ONE position, and that's place kicker? Listen, don't sell us on the popularity of the game. We KNOW it's popular. Our problem is with the game itself, and that there's not enough elements we enjoy in sports present in it. The message I keep getting is "how dare you not like this game". Why is it so important to the rest of the world that the United States plays soccer. And yes, I call it "soccer", because George Washington is on my money. People came to this country so they wouldn't have to play it.
@DrKill09 I don't like those games but all the same your comment is so stupid it made me laugh, thanks!
@alberth123123 It's by far the world's most popular sport. Whether it's the greatest... hmmm...
@JimmeyBurrows You're right it has a neat combination of athletism, skill and strategy. I just find it sooo slow though... I don't need a score of 60-100 like football or basketball to be entertained but all the same it takes forever to cross the field and as much as it's an amazing sport to play... I find it sooo boring to watch. Anyways, that's just my feeling about it. I'm canadian so I'm totally biased. HOCKEY ALL THE WAY!!! What sport combines FIGHTING to skating, athletism, strategy and skill???? LMAO
@xwestsdeaznx Haven't you heard? ICA 13 (international cricket association) sold 10 million units in the first hour after it's release on consoles and PCs!!! LOL No but seriously cricket is very popular in terms of number of viewers (probably number 2 or 3) but only in a few select countries. India is one of those countries it counts for a lot of viewers given India's population... : D
You're right. It IS the world's gayest sport.
