Madden’s Got Nothin’ on FIFA

So, you American Madden fan. Think your football game is the most popular in the world?

Ha! You are so dead wrong.

That honor goes to EA’s FIFA series. Need proof? FIFA 09 has not only sold 7.8 million copies of the title, but a whopping 1.25 million games are played every day online. Since its release, that’s 141 million games logged. That’s a 321% (!) increase from the states in FIFA 08. One can assume many people are making the best of their unemployment given the economy situation, or that certain countries really love soccer. Come to think of it, it’s probably the latter.
