In a release to investors late yesterday, Electronic Arts called FIFA 11 the, "fastest selling sports game ever", as the game has sold 2.6 million units since it's launch on September 28.
FIFA 11 sell-through is estimated to be up 29 percent over last year's record-breaking launch. FIFA 11 is estimated to have grossed more than $150M at retail.
October 1-2 - the first two days after FIFA 11 launched in Europe - was the busiest two-day period for online gaming in EA SPORTS history. Fans registered more than 18.6 million online connected EA SPORTS game sessions overall, including more than 11.3 million of FIFA 11, in that two-day period.
FIFA 11 has earned 58 review scores of 90 or better around the world, including perfect marks from Gameblog.fr, Eurogamer Italy, PlayStation Life Style and Match magazine and Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK. GamesMaster Magazine (UK) proclaimed that FIFA 11 is "the best football game ever," while OPM UK raves FIFA 11 is "as close to footballing perfection as we've ever seen in a videogame."
