FIFA 14 really is a juggernaut right now. While everyone expected GTA V to stay at the top of the charts for weeks, just like The Last of Us did recently, FIFA 14 has taken the top spot in week one.
So what is it about the game that has got everyone laying out their hard-earned cash (or benefit money) in return for a shiny disc?
FIFA 14 is here, and PS3 Attitude were invited to take part in a tournament earlier this week in an attempt to find out who has ‘unbelievable tekkers’ and who should be sent for an early bath. A group of journalists and bloggers descended on East London with dreams of footballing glory, but how did the game itself hold up under the relentless competitive pressure?
Throughout Gamescom week our inbox gets barraged by publishers pushing trailers. We can’t complain. We love them, and we know you do too.
That’s why we decided to collect our favourites and put them together in an article. It turned out we couldn’t narrow them down to 10, so we thought we might as well give you 37.
Check out this feast of trailers from EA at Gamescom 2011. Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, SSX and FIFA 12 are the highlights, but we also have trailers for Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning, Need for Speed: The Run and NHL 12, not to mention the first footage of FIFA Street 4.
EA’s Gamescom 2011 presentation is set to be one of the highlights of this year’s event, and you can watch the action unfold live on the EA website.
When you play Battlefield 3 later this year, admire the soldiers’ realistic movements, and then acknowledge the FIFA development team for helping DICE to implement this superb animation technology. However, whatever you do, don’t suggest that EA Sports designed the animations for Battlefield 3.
PES has a decent level of support, and last year’s showing was actually pretty good, but for most football fans, hardcore or casual, there’s only one football series for them.
FIFA’s success is partly down to shallow reasons: it has a huge marketing budget, high production values, 500 plus officially licenced clubs and 15,000 plus players. But underneath the Wayne Rooney adverts and Sky Sports presentation lies great gameplay, gameplay that claws you back every time for one more match.
We speak to FIFA producer David Rutter, and discuss the notion of games as a service.
We learn about the new services coming to FIFA 12, including EA Sports Fooball Club and Support Your Club, and consider the possibility that this new focus on services will lead to a change in the FIFA business model, with it possibly moving away from yearly iterations to an ongoing live service model.
At a recent press event, David Rutter, producer of FIFA, took a pack of journalists through some of the improvements and changes his team at EA Sports are making for FIFA 12’s career mode. This is what we discovered.
EA Sports is calling FIFA 12 a revolution, not an evolution, due to the number of changes being implemented this year. It’s not your standard yearly FIFA iteration, that’s for sure.
At the top of the list are several gameplay innovations – including a new Player Impact Engine, Tactical Defending and Precision Dribbling – and each of them add a new dimension to the gameplay, changing completely how we experience FIFA.
Fifa 12 screenshots. The latest batch of screenshots from EA Sports shows gameplay, updated UI and a deeper career mode. Read on to find the full gallery of screenshots.
Here at PS3 Attitude we love the FIFA series. Each season the folks at EA Canada masterfully portray the poetry characteristic of ‘the beautiful game’.
The thing about poetry however is that sometimes it’s all sunshine and lollipops and sometimes it can be a hearty stew of misery. Without further ado, here are the best goals and worst misses of the season as chosen by the FIFA gaming community.
Every year the FIFA franchise brings us as close to the pitch as possible without the endowment of god-given talent or the hours of training necessary to experience personally the fervor of international football.
FIFA 12 looks to up the degree of realism this year with the introduction of the new Player Impact Engine.
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
Medal of Honor, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Vanquish, Fallout: New Vegas, Sonic the Hedgehog: Episode 1, FIFA 2011, PES 2011 and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West: these are just some of the games that have stormed the charts in October.
If July will be remembered for its summer shutdown, then October will be known for its abundance of games. What’s more: they were mostly quality. Yes, some underachieved, and others were predictable, but all were worth a play, and play we did…
FIFA 11 is truly a “game of two halves”, a phrase that has summed up the topsy-turvy nature of this beautiful game we call football since it was coined, probably by either Jimmy Greaves or Ian St. Clair, in the early ’90s.
The problem with FIFA 11 is this. On one hand you have the slickest and best feeling football game to ever arrive on the PS3. Then on the other hand you have a game mode so maddening you hope and pray that, just for some light relief, Sir Alex Ferguson would walk into your room and kick a boot in your face.
EA have announced that FIFA’s popular annual Ultimate Team DLC will be free to all users of FIFA 11. Not only that, but it’s also coming in November, giving gamers three whole months longer to play it than normal.
Wayne Rooney is at the centre of a tabloid frenzy. The English footballer has been accused of having a series of illicit encounters with a prostitute while his wife Coleen was at home carrying his unborn child. It’s the sort of scandalous behaviour that would trouble associate companies, but EA Sports have publicly backed their FIFA 11 cover star.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
