EA dodges accusations of FIFA 12/13 Wii being the same game

Go Nintendo - When EA was contacted about FIFA 12 being largely repackaged as FIFA 13 for Wii, here's what a rep had to say. (EA, FIFA 12, FIFA 13, Wii, Wii U)

Go Nintendo seems to be scratching for news here. Sure, it probably is the same game, but what do you expect with Wii?

seriously
this has been going on the PSP for so long! why complain now? it's no surprise that EA is not going to invest too much for a console that is in its way out and Wii versions are always just like the PS2 and PSP versions - cheap money grabbing ports! for FIFA, the money is always on 360 and PS3 since 2008!

I'm not defending EA here but that's what happen when even Nintendo has abandoned the Wii now!

The problem is how much they ask for it.

$20-$40 is steep for this lazy repackaging and they take advantage of the ignorance of those who buy it.

if you don't want to invest in a dying system then don't bother at all, but don't rip off those who's still game on these systems and expect nobody to complain.

lol EA repackaging old games into the new version each year?

Wait until the Madden fans find out...oh wait nevermind.

They literally mean the same game, with just updated rosters and logos. No other changes whatsoever.

Wow EA and here I actually gave you a little credit for Fifa 13.

Now I feel stupid. How are companies able to just rob people like this? Actually getting away with it being caught red handed also?

Can someone sue these basterds already, charging for online to play in old games, now this? Is this not enough proof they are greedy as shit?

Or am I missing something here?

They probably don't even sell enough copies on wii to justify any major effort. They just release it with an updated roster for those who missed last years or new comers.

Anyone that credits fifa 13 just like there football games easy tbh. Auto passing Auto crossing Auto shooting etc. Then they sit back and go wow this new first touch system is amazing :D.

Joke is you can't see it in action unless you go manual and thats broken as always. Im sorry if i want to play a football game this year ill pick up one that requires some learning Pes13. Fifa is as bad as COD.

Proof is in the online tell me how many will play fifa in manual mode online xD cant see anyone doing it and being at a disadvantage.
