FIFA 13 launches in South Africa today, 1-million units pre-ordered worldwide in anticipation

In the US and most of the world, the FIFA 13 DVD is already spinning in soccer-hungry fans’ consoles. FIFA 13 is guaranteed to sell boat-loads, so it comes as no surprise that it’s been pre-ordered over one-million times.

The demo alone was downloaded close to five-million times, this was spread over 123 countries. Fans will also be able to snatch up the Ultimate Edition, if they paid for it that is. Ultimate Edition delivers 24 FIFA Ultimate Team gold packs for 24 weeks in a row.

Reviews are already overwhelming positive for a title that rarely needs to innovate in order to capture the attention of the hearts and minds of gamers. But it’s FIFA, the most potent gaming drug ever invented, so expect to offer yourself up to the gods of console soccer come 28 September, if you’re in South Africa.
