EA Games has claimed that FIFA 12 outsold rival Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 by 25 times in terms of first weekend sales.

As reported by GamerZines, EA’s VP & GM of Northern Europe, Keith Ramsdale spoke of an “unbelievable” turnaround in the rivalry between the FIFA and PES franchises at the firm’s European Winter Showcase in London earlier this week.

“FIFA went out just a couple of weekends ago. We had record pre-orders and record sell-through,” he said. “And 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.

“That’s a sign of the momentum and the fanbase and community behind FIFA, and let’s be clear, an absolutely kick-arse game. It’s unbelievable.”

Both titles launched across a large number of platforms, including PS3, PS2 and PSP. EA is however planning to bring FIFA 12 to PlayStation Vita next year.

Well done EA, well done.

    I was surfing around for a free video game download and found a site giving away the FIFA 2012 Video Game for Free. Some sort of Consumer Rewards deal. Not sure how it works exactly or who is paying for the games, maybe the manufacturer, or advertisers. IT took about 3 weeks to come in, I had actually forgotten that I submitted my email and address with them. But it works, Now The site is even more updated with XBOX Consoles, A Red Nintendo Wii, and more. The site is http://thefamilyexchange.com/free Im going back to get more free stuff.
