FIFA 10: Fastest Selling Sports Video Game Ever

It may have gotten lost in the shuffle of massive holiday blockbusters like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed II and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but that didn't stop it from achieving massive success.

EA has revealed that FIFA 10 has now sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide, making it the single fastest selling sports video game ever made. You have to remember that this title only launched in Europe on October 2 and in North America on October 20, so to rack up four and a half million in this span of time...well, that's pretty damn phenomenal. We may notice people going crazy for Madden in this country, but clearly, FIFA is even bigger than Madden once you take the rest of the world into account. Well, of course. Soccer is the world's sport while football is really more of a US thing. To keep interest firmly fixed on FIFA 10, EA has also announced the first piece of downloadable content for the game: the "FIFA 10 Ultimate Team," which is set to be released to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace soon. It's a stellar simulator and it's now plain that EA has really worked to put themselves back on top of the sports world in many different categories. I may not be the biggest fan, but you have to appreciate such immense popularity and besides, anything that sells 4.5 million in just over a month just has to be something special. Doesn't it?

It'll definitely be in the running for Sports Game of the Year when we get right down to it. 2009 has indeed been amazing, but don't discount the sports titles 'cuz they've shined, too.
