FIFA 13 has proved its dominance in the football genre by selling “over 4.5 million units across all platforms” in just five days. Unsurprisingly, more than one million of those sales took place in the UK within the simulation’s first 48 hours available. Anecdotal aside: there wasn’t a copy of the game to be found in our local super market last night.

As a result of the impressive sales, FIFA 13 broke the record for the most concurrent users of any EA game to date, registering a whopping 800,000 online enthusiasts on 30th September. Were you amongst the crowd?
