FIFA 13 is the fastest-selling game in 2012
October 3, 2012 | By Eric Caoili




Newsbrief: After moving more than 4.5 million copies in just five days, FIFA Soccer 2013 is not only the fastest-selling sports title of all time, it's the fastest-selling game of the year so far.

EA Sports credits the record sales to the game's quality -- its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions have received mostly positive reviews from critics, averaging scores of 88 and 90 on Metacritic respectively. FIFA 13 also launched on 3DS, Wii, PS Vita, PSP, PS2, PC, and iOS.

The game performed particularly well in the UK, where it sold over 1.23 million copies in just 48 hours -- it's only the second game franchise ever to sell more than 1 million units in the region in a single day.

Madden NFL 13, also an EA Sports release, also set new records for the football franchise last month after it sold 1.65 million copies during its first week on sale.
