EA Sports Sells More Than 4.5 Million Copies Of "FIFA Soccer 13"
EA Sports said this afternoon it has sold more than 4.5 million copies globally of its "FIFA Soccer 13" video game in its first five days of release. The total, more than 1 million units above the comparable sales total for last year's version, further extends a powerful run for what is the most popular sports video game on a global basis. The initial sales represent the biggest launch for any sports video game ever, and the biggest launch of any game regardless of genre this year. EA Sports Exec VP Andrew Wilson called the "FIFA" launch "a critical and commercial success unprecedented in sports entertainment."
