FIFA 10 sales top 4.5 million

Over 113m online games played over Xbox 360 and PS3, says EA

Electronic Arts' FIFA 10 has sold over 4.5 million units worldwide since release in October, a 26 per cent increase on the same sales period in 2008.

According to the publisher, over 113 million online games have been played, with an average of 3 million per day played over Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 services.

A new game mode, FIFA 10 Ultimate Team, will launch in February next year. "FIFA 10 Ultimate Team adds a lot more authenticity to a unique game that will update with new challenges and content over time," offered producer Paul Hossack.

"We now have over 7,000 players from 27 leagues available, from which gamers will craft one or multiple squads to show their mastery of the revamped, more realistic chemistry system, and compete in tournaments with exciting requirements and rewards. On top of that, we'll release new tournaments and other updates regularly to keep the experience fresh and exciting."
