EA Sports boss Peter Moore’s expressed “delight” at FIFA 10 hitting the Japanese charts on launch, writing on his blog.

“Imagine my delight to see Famitsu award the game a platinum rating (36/40), a score only enjoyed by the cream of the crop of games released in Japan,” he said.

“That score obviously caught soccer gamers eyes over there, as the game debuted in the top 10 this week, much to our delight.”

Mr Moore’s not resting on his laurels, though.

“It is clear we still have work to do in Japan to more fully understand what drives that gamers attraction to sports titles,” he added.

“Let me be clear on this. I recognize that there are many factors that contribute to a gamer’s decision to purchase (or not) a particular game, I’d just hate for the gamers in Japan to not get as much enjoyment as the rest of the world out of the best sports game of this console generation.”

Moore through there.
