FIFA 10 Smashes Records In Europe

It will probably never be as popular in North America as it is in Europe and other regions around the globe, but...well, EA might not even need us for this one.

Today, EA has announced that the recent launch of FIFA 10 is a legitimate record-breaker; the hotly anticipated soccer title sold 1.7 million copies at European retail in its first week of availability, which makes it the "fastest selling sports game ever and EA's biggest European launch in history." Well, damn. It's not scheduled to release in the US until October 20 but then again, it makes perfect sense that Europe sees this bad boy first. Said Peter Moore, president of EA Sports:

"We were confident that FIFA 10 would be a hit, and this week fans across Europe have shown just how much they love this game. We are incredibly proud of FIFA 10 and this kick-off for great, authentic football competition."

So far, most of the critical scores come from European sources but they're all very high - it's currently averaging nearly 92% at GameRankings - and you can bet that soccer fans everywhere are happy that EA continues to provide them with very realistic depictions of their favorite sport. Since the European launch, there have already been over 10 million gaming sessions recorded, with over 155,000 gamers playing online simultaneously. That's just crazy. We'll be bringing you our review of the game later this month but needless to say, we have very high expectations.
