WTF is EA Doing?!

Bamboo Shoots writes: If you keep up with gaming news at all then you've probably heard about the latest dick move by EA. If you haven't then here's the down low; Electronic Art's FIFA 13 for Wii is the exact same game FIFA 12 was.

Now by exact same game I mean EXACT. SAME. GAME. Literally nothing has changed, same dialogue, same graphics, same character models, hell even the menus are identical to the previous game. The only changes are the roster updates and some kits. (EA, FIFA 13, PS Vita, Wii)

What is EA doing?

Being a business.

And what can consumers do?

Not buy the game.

Too bad we're on the same level as crack addicts and not enough people will ever say no. lol ugh

Most consumers won't know it's the same game until after they bought it

I bet the people complaining about this weren't even planning to buy the game.

oh, but we should complain because this sort of practice could come to an HD console near you.

My problem is with EA marketing FIFA 13 everywhere with the top-spec version and then flogging a load of unevolved versions under the same badge, that has to be violating some law somewhere, or would violate a marketing ethic (if they had any)

Thanks to the "Second hand market hurts developers" brigade who are thoroughly brainwashed by publishers this sort of thing will be just the beginning.

Don't like it? tough we've got your money now.

They did the same thing with the vita version, which really sucks as I wanted to buy it.

Who the heck plays FIFA on the wii anyway?
