FIFA 10 sells 4.5 million

That's a 26 percent increase over the same period last year folks

FIFA 10 has sold more than 4.5 million units worldwide since launch, which is a 26 percent increase over the same period a year ago - eight weeks in Europe and five weeks in North America, to be exact.

EA also boasted that FIFA 10 has become the fastest-selling sports videogame in the world with 1.7 million sold in Europe in its first week after launch on October 1.

For the record number of football fans playing FIFA 10 online, FIFA 10 Ultimate Team provides a new challenge to put a personally crafted team up against the rest of the world," reads the release.
