EA has today announced that based on internal estimates since its September 27 launch in North America and September 30 worldwide, FIFA 12 has sold-through an estimated 3.2 million units across all consoles worldwide, making it the biggest launch in the history of sports videogames and the biggest videogame launch of 2011 to date.
These are preliminary EA estimates however it seems that they won’t be too far off the actual figures.
“FIFA 12 is a stunning achievement by our team at EA Canada,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice-President of EA Sports. “The massive FIFA online community has overwhelmingly connected to the new live services in the game, including EA Sports Football Club, and we intend to keep them engaged all season long as FIFA 12 follows the football season.”
Interestingly FIFA 12 has already sold 879,000 units, meaning that iOS has performed almost just as well as both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
Other interesting facts show that eight million game sessions were played on launch day, while the top supported clubs via EA Sports Football Club have also been revealed as follows:
Manchester United — 241,767 supporters FC Barcelona — 144,709 supporters Arsenal — 131,305 supporters Real Madrid — 126,806 supporters Liverpool — 118,182 supporters
