GN Version 4.0
"FIFA 12 has been remarkable. Five million consumers purchased this latest iteration so far, the best reviewed sports game of this current console generation. FIFA 12 is doing unprecedented levels of online engagement. Four weeks into the launch, we have hosted 271 million online games, an increase of 105 percent over last year. Fans are currently playing an average of 94 million minutes per day of FIFA 12 online. One month after FIFA 12 launched in stores, the game is still on the console tray and thus still generating incremental revenue. Players are rewriting our assumptions about their traditional decay curve. They're playing longer, they're more engaged and they are eager to spend in order to extend the experience." - EA's Peter Moore

I know one person that has picked up FIFA 12. Obviously soccer isn't too big in our circle of friends. Are you one of the five million to pick up this installment?
