Last year FIFA 11 became the fastest selling sports game in history – it has now been topped by the latest in the series. FIFA 12 has broken the record by selling 3.2 million copies in its first week worldwide. That represents a 23% increase and makes it the biggest seller of 2011 even beating out Gears of War 3.

FIFA 12 continues a run for EA Sports franchises that have delivered significant year-over-year sales increases. Tiger Woods 12, NCAA Football 12, Madden NFL 12, and NHL 12 have all produced encouraging sales trends with each moving up 10-19% vs their previous iterations.
