EA Financials Say FIFA is Still King
What’s the top-selling game of the year so far? Red Dead Redemption? Halo: Reach? Starcraft II? To be honest, we don’t know, because we don’t have exact to-date sales figures for any of those games. But I would guess that odds are good that FIFA 11 is, so far, the biggest game of the year, because EA says in their Q2 2011 financial report that the game has sold 8 million copies. As of when I don’t know, because EA does not say, but since the report also mentions Medal of Honor sales, and that game came out after the quarter ended, it probably includes October sales for FIFA as well. They also say that FIFA was the top game, period, in Europe for the quarter, which is pretty cool.
What does this mean? It means that sports are cool, nerds. Get used to it.
