FIFA is freaking solid this year. Love it and it's more than holding me over until FM13 comes out

I'd have to agree. On manual, I'm having the most fun with a soccer game in a long time. I'd give it a 9 and a few guys know how critical I am of the FiFA series.

Damn. That's crazy but it's a great game and well deserved.

Do you really care where I sent this from?

350,000 on opening day in North America. Which is a hell of a lot considering soccer really isn't all that mainstream over here.

Im not surprised wherever i went to get the game they didn't have it until i found a 6th gamestop lol

FIFA 13 will be officially released tomorrow here in Brazil, but i have seen a lot of NA copies of the game in the stores. The delay is probably related with the commentary in brazilian portuguese, and pre-order sales are great here. I can tell you i will be lucky if i can get my copy of the game tomorrow.
