I can't believe a game so bad is #1 in the UK. Seriously, FIFA has been getting worse with every new installment, just like Madden NFL.

"The PS5 version accounted for 62 percent of the sales, followed by the PS4 version at 22 percent, and the Xbox Series X|S version at 17 percent."

The retail box says just "Xbox" at the top, and notes Series X and Xbox One compatibility, and then you'll just get the right version through Smart Delivery. So the retail game is not Series S compatible due to the lack of an optical drive, but it IS Xbox One compatible, so the article suggests two incorrect things.

"It should be noted the game was available on Xbox Game Pass day one."

I'm not surprised the PlayStation version so badly outsold the Xbox at retail. With it being on Game Pass, even if you did plan to buy it why not try it first just to be sure? And then just buy it digitally at a discount if you do like it.
