Away from the supermarkets, FIFA 11 is available from ShopTo on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for £34.85, while Amazon are selling FIFA 11 at the slightly higher price of £35.93.

Specialist retailers Gamestation and GAME are offering FIFA 11 for £37.99 and £39.99 respectively.

GAME CEO Ian Shepherd has told MCV that GAME isn’t concerned about supermarket competition for the big launch of FIFA 11.

“FIFA’s going to be a really exciting launch – we are building up for a really big week on it”  He said.

“For us it’s a much broader question than price competition – trade-ins, pre-order incentives, Reward Card points, exclusive content in-store all comes into play for us on big launches like this.”

“Look at Halo: Reach, Move, StarCraft II, and other big launches – we over-index on market share when new products arrive because we have a great mix of offers.”

A large number of GAME stores will be opening their doors at midnight to celebrate the launch of FIFA 11 and allow gamers to be among the first to get their hands on the latest edition of the annual franchise.
