A Twitch streamer has spent a monumental $40k on a whopping 5.5 million points for EA Sports FC 24 – the game isn’t even out yet!
EA Sports FC 24 is just around the corner and fans are massively excited for EA’s new instalment of the ever-popular soccer simulator. One of the biggest modes that fans immerse themselves into is Ultimate Team – which is once again making a return in the new era of ‘FIFA‘ games.
Ultimate Team consists of building the best starting XI of players possible. These players can be obtained via a transfer market, or more excitedly, via packs from a store. These packs can be obtained via virtual in-game currency or FC points – which are bought with real-life money.
Players often purchase with real funds in order to gain an advantage early on, but it’s never usually to the extent of how far one player has gone already.
Danny Aarons drops $40k on FC Points
It’s a wacky world being a YouTuber/Twitch streamer. Things that would seem horrendously abnormal to most, are accepted as just another normal day in the life of an internet star.
For example, I don’t think you’d be seeing many of your average drops dropping 40 racks on a video game.
But, this is exactly what Danny Aarons has done in anticipation of EA’s new title. Aarons shared an image on his X account, showing a balance of 5,592,050 in in-game currency via FIFA Points on his FIFA 23 account – which is set to transfer once the new game is out.
We did the math, and this equates to $40k if you were to buy the points directly from the FIFA store.
Let’s put this into perspective...
This is an absolutely ludicrous amount to spend on something virtual. To put it into perspective, a ‘premium gold pack’ on FIFA is 150 points. Aarons has accumulated enough to buy himself 37,280 packs.
That is crazy, but then again – it is his job.
At the end of the day, this is an investment for the young man. He will be able to make the best content possible with this, which will earn him more money in the long run.
Our advice? If you don’t have a YouTube channel with 1 million subscribers – please spend your money elsewhere.
