It’s not exactly a shock that the continent of Europe waits year in and year out for Electronic Arts to release their yearly installment of the FIFA football franchise. The game consistently sells well in Europe even months after release and continues to dominate the entire region over its competition. With a significant increase every year in the content being provided and the experience packaged inside the game, it’s not surprising to see the title doing so well.
According to EA, FIFA 10 is the fastest selling sports title of all time, “the fastest selling sports game ever and EA’s biggest European launch in history.”
It’s great to see EA Sports use the last 4-5 years to completely rejuvenate a ton of their sports franchises ranging from football to basketball. It’ll be exciting to see where these games are a couple of years from now.
