'FIFA 10' selling at record pace

What's the best selling sports game in the world? Ask most people that question and their first response would probably be "Madden." But it's EA Sports' other footballer that is setting sales records around the globe.

Based on EA's internal sales projections, "FIFA 10" has already sold through more than 4.5 million units worldwide since launch. According to EA, that's a 26-percent increase over the same period a year ago.

In fact, the game sold 1.7 million units its first week in retail in Europe alone, also becoming the best-selling game in Europe overall for 2009.

Other "FIFA 10" stats of note include over 113 million total online games played on the PS3 and 360 over the past two months, with an average of 3 million games still being played every day.
