EA’s VP & GM of Northern Europe, Keith Ramsdale, has said that the publishers latest FIFA game is outselling its rival by 25-1.
Speaking at an exclusive press event held yesterday (as reported by Gamerzines), Ramsdale said that there were “big smiles at EA at the moment.”
“FIFA went out just a couple of weekends ago. We had record pre-orders and record sell-through,” said Ramsdale.
“When you look at Pro Evolution Soccer versus FIFA, only five years ago in the UK PES was outselling FIFA. On its first weekend like-for-like we’ve just outsold PES by 25 times.
“That’s a sign of the momentum and the fanbase and community behind FIFA, and let’s be clear, an absolutely kick-arse game. It’s unbelievable.”
FIFA 12 sold a whopping 3.2 million copies on its first week on sale, which is impressive numbers by anyone’s standards.
