Last week EA released a lengthy statement in response to a FIFA 13 segment aired on BBC One consumer rights show Watchdog, in which it said reports of game crashes and other issues have more than halved since the release of the game's last major update on October 19.

FIFA 13 sales hit 7.4 million units in four weeks of availability, EA recently claimed.
