FIFA 23 PS5 PS4 PlayStation

FIFA 23 is off to a roaring start, racking up more than 10 million players in its first week alone, 10.3 if you want to be exact. For comparison, FIFA 22 managed a very respectable 9.1 million players in its first ten days on the market, numbers that any game would kill to have.

The increase may be attributed to the fact that FIFA 23 marks the end of the franchise's 30-year-long history after failing to strike a new deal with world football's governing body. We thought the game was good and a strong note for the series to go out on, and you can read our full thoughts on the matter in our review.

It hasn't all been smooth sailing, though, with EA wiping millions of coins worth of value out of its own digital marketplace following a snafu involving a Hero Pack.
