I doubt they are "very satisfied" with this sales, but hey, if they are enough to guarantee continuous support, so be it. Bring the Sims to the Switch, you know people would respond very well to that.

Also, what on Earth happen to Bomberman? Did it not stock enough copies, or did it sell out?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Why they wouldn't be satisfied with those sales!? 73k without digital (with Digital probably around 80-90k) in one country, so basically means that almost 10% of Switch owners currently bought Fifa.

Yeah, I think so, because there is general consensus here that Fifa bombed on Switch and EA is done with Switch support beacuse of that.

It's EA, they've been dissatisfied with sales better than that, plus it's FIFA. It makes millions in Europe alone.

As I said before, it dosent need to sell the millions it usually does on other platforms  to be considered good enough.Well, even if its EA, its good to know that they wont entirely jump ship.I think we can expect FIFA 2019 and other sports game, along with those small games like Fe, out of EA going foward.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

That means they won't need microtransactions anymore?

Offcourse its EA, but they also have realistic expectations, of course they know that cant sale much more on brand new platform in first year in one market. 73k without digital (with Digital probably around 80-90k) in one country, so basically means that almost 10% of Switch owners currently bought Fifa, is a good result.

I think people got that idea because the switch version only accounted for about 3% of sales. Ps4 version dwarfed it making it look bad even though relatively it did alright.
