FIFA 12 Outselling PES 2012 25-to-1

Posted on October 19, 2011 AT 12:07pm

THE BUZZ: Any doubt left that FIFA 12 was the best selling soccer game in the world has been squashed, as it has been announced that FIFA outsold PES by 25-to-1 based on first week sales.

“When you look at Pro Evolution Soccer versus FIFA, only five years ago in the UK PES was outselling FIFA. On its first weekend like-for-like we’ve just outsold PES by 25 times,” said Keith Ramsdale, Northern European boss for EA. ”That’s a sign of the momentum and the fan base and community behind FIFA, and let’s be clear, an absolutely kick-arse game. It’s unbelievable.”

EGM’s TAKE: It’s been known for some time that there was a gap between the two franchises but no one knew it was this big.
