Besides that, the company also announced that the first downloadable content pack, FIFA 10 Ultimate Team, will be available in February 2010 on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
Producer Paul Hossack details in the press release what you're getting with Ultimate Team: "We now have over 7,000 players from 27 leagues available, from which gamers will craft one or multiple squads to show their mastery of the revamped, more realistic chemistry system, and compete in tournaments with exciting requirements and rewards. On top of that, we'll release new tournaments and other updates regularly to keep the experience fresh and exciting."
Back to the sales figures, EA says FIFA 10 sold 26 percent better than FIFA 09 did in the same time period last year (and said nothing regarding last year's lousy economy compared to this year's optimistic economy). EA also says that FIFA 10 is breaking franchise records with an average of "3 million games played daily and over 113 million total online games played on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 over the past two months."
Talk about keeping the ball rolling.
