FIFA 12 crowed UK's highest grossing sports game ever
EA Sports and FIFA 12 celebrate as ahead of the FIFA Street release FIFA 12 is officially crowed the UK's highest grossing sports title of all time
Having topped the UK All Format Gaming Charts for five consecutive weeks EA Sports’ impressive football sim FIFA 12 has become the UK’s highest ever grossing sports title.
Having followed Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release to become 2011’s second highest selling game, FIFA 12 has continued to dominate in 2012 topping the UK’s All Format Gaming Chart every week of the year so far.
"It has already made more money than any other FIFA title or indeed any other sports title to date," retail monitor GfK Chart-Track said of FIFA 12. "The five week run is the joint second best run of any FIFA title although it has a long way to go to beat FIFA Road to the World Cup 98 which had a record 11 weeks in a row at No.1."
Looking to capitalise on the success and popularity of its current FIFA release EA Sports has confirmed that ahead of the FIFA 13 release date during the early part of the next football season later this year it is to revive the much loved FIFA Street Franchise.
Now just a matter of weeks away EA made the most of the FIFA 12 arrival putting flyers in the game’s box alerting fans to a March FIFA Street release date.
