The anticipation could hardly be any bigger ahead of the release of FIFA 13 this Friday.
EA has revealed that the FIFA 13 demo it released has been downloaded a staggering 4.6m times. That's an EA Sports record, and it's also a rise of 42 per cent compared to the FIFA 12 demo.
In addition, over 1m pre-orders have been placed for the game.
The publisher has also confirmed that FIFA 13 will be a launch title for Nintendo's Wii U console, which launches in Europe at the end of next month.
