FIFA 15, just released yesterday in North America and yet to be released in Europe and the UK, is already having some troubles. Maybe you're in luck if you buy it on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS or Vita (and b...

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...


EA Sports is in a good position with its athletic franchises. The demand for annual iterations in each series is high enough to warrant frequent releases, but sports don't really change. This allows the developers to focus on...

From what I understand, FIFA 14 is one of the earliest games to be shown consistently running on Xbox One hardware, rather than being demonstrated on PC-based development kits. That being the case, I expected a solid performa...


Well, here's a swing and a miss by EA's marketing department -- an overly Australian attempt at teaching us FIFA 14's celebrations "Oz Style". It's about as insufferably embarrassing as an advertisement can get. And that's b...


FIFA 14 is on the way for the Nintendo 3DS. But it seems as if you'll be getting the exact same game as last year, as there is one major caveat found in the press release -- the phrase "Legacy Edition." Game Informer reports ...

If you didn't have one yet, prepare to get a full-on chub after watching this video. British electronic outfit Hot Chip has a knack for making some awkward hilarious music videos but their latest for single "Don't Deny Your ...


Electronic Arts has been caught red-handed selling a barely updated re-release as a full sequel. While it's often hard to tell the difference with sports games, it's really bad this time, since the Wii version of FIFA 13 real...


FIFA 13 is a little over a month away from launch and the game, which will mark the twentieth edition of EA's very long running FIFA franchise, will be getting a game mode new to the franchise which EA Sports is ca...


Madden 13 isn’t the only EA sports title launching alongside Nintendo’s incoming Wii U, as FIFA 13 will be too. Much like how the Vita’s FIFA Soccer was built on the framework of FIFA 11, FIFA 13 on the Wii ...

The somewhat mythologized sub-genre called street soccer -- as presented by FIFA Street -- is hedonistic and excessive, with a strong tilt toward showboating and theatrics. It’s puzzling, then, that EA Sports decided to...
