Electronic Arts estimates that the soccer sim scored an impressive 3.2 million sales between September 27th and October 2nd.

The company added that sales are up 23 percent over last year, and that October 1st was the busiest day for online gaming in EA Sports history, with some 10 million games played. Amazingly eight million took place in FIFA 12.

Bonkers numbers but totally deserved. We rather enjoyed FIFA 12 in our review.
