Online soccer + Korean gamers + World Cup = BOOM

Electronic Arts has announced more than 100,000 peak concurrent users for “FIFA Online” in its first month of launch in Korea. If you don’t know what “peck concurrent users” are, it just means that 100,000 people are playing the game at the same time. The announcement says the number is a new record, putting FIFA Online ahead of racing and fantasy titles.

EA also announced that the largest number of people who have played FIFA Online (a PC game only available in Korea) is 600,000 people. The game was released on May 25.
