EA’s Chief operating officer Peter Moore last night revealed that FIFA 12 sales have now breached the five million mark.
Speaking during the companies latest earnings call, Moore said, “FIFA 12 has been remarkable. Five million consumers purchased this latest iteration so far, the best reviewed sports game of this current console generation.”
Moore also went on to give some interesting figures in terms of the amount of games played online and it makes for impressive reading.
“Four weeks into the launch, we have hosted 271 million online games, an increase of 105 percent over last year. Fans are currently playing an average of 94 million minutes per day of FIFA 12 online.
“One month after FIFA 12 launched in stores, the game is still on the console tray and thus still generating incremental revenue. Players are rewriting our assumptions about their traditional decay curve. They’re playing longer, they’re more engaged and they are eager to spend in order to extend the experience.”
Last time we heard, FIFA 12 had sold a whopping 3.2 million copies on its first week on sale, which is impressive numbers by anyone’s standards.
