December 9, 2009 Written by Zak Islam


With the major success of the addictive online components of EA’s sports games, it’s no surprise to see the franchise reach such a high landmark. A few examples of where the success has come from is FIFA 10 alone, which has already passed the 40 million games played online mark.

EA Sports has hosted more than 1 billion online games this year alone, said EA boss John Riccitiello to NBR.

Riccitiello had this to say:

“This year alone, in just the package goods business of EA Sports, one part of our company, we’ve hosted over a billion online games. A billion online games. That’s a staggering number,”

This amount of activity could be equated with that of a country.

These are where people playing an hour, two hours, three hours: it’s the productivity of a small nation, just wrapped up in EA Sports online.
