EA Sports Pulls Another 'Fifa Old-Gen' On PC Gamers, Ignite Engine Not Coming To The PC

DSOGaming writes: "As we said a couple of hours ago, we were uncertain whether the PC would be getting the next-generation version of Fifa 14. After all, Ignite was announced for next-gen consoles and it has been confirmed that its PC version will be based on its 'old-gen' version. Yeap, EA Sports is pulling another 'Fifa old-gen' on PC gamers, in order to obviously promote the next-gen console versions of Fifa 14." (FIFA 14, PC)

I wasn't gonna buy it anyway since it requires origin

It's just sad that they're promoting consoles sales via this way

Ive said this before...spend a £1000+ on a high end PC, u will get screwed. Not just by EA, plenty of devs will create games primary for consoles. If u buy a high end GPU like Titan and there aren't good enough games for it and or that games don't utilize its power with console ports, u have been mind fucked. Just stick to next gen console cause devs and publishers are gonna screw ur machine.

Starcraft and those crappy MMORPG/RTS games is what u PC gamers will get...No one in console camp will give a crap about those games.

Consoles are the future, well atleast for next 5 years. After that, PC will become relevant again until a newer generation system arrives. Don't hate on me..i'm just a realist.

Looks like EA is abandoning Origin for the 360 lmao

It's funny because when these crap ports don't sell they say

"Piracy is hurting our sales, see!"

that just a stupid build a game with the old engine instead copy it and paste
AedanClarke  +   922d ago
Well, guess what, EA? Now I'm not buying it at all.

Great business practice you got going on here. Pricks.
Asuka  +   922d ago
which makes no sense seeing as how pc orientated the ps4 and xbox1 are.
Jughead3416  +   922d ago
I guess the money is in the console business
JsonHenry  +   922d ago
They are TRYING to keep the money in the consoles. Otherwise why would they go out of their way to keep the PC version on older tech when the new consoles are x86 native.

What? PC parts are selling wonderfully right now. PC gaming is rising quite well right now. It does this at the end of every console cycle. And, I hate to burst your bubble, but PC gaming has and always has been a pretty large part of the market.

And while I don't know about other people, I certainly buy FIFA on PC. I just hook the computer up to the TV and play with my friends. I know. Mind blown, right?

I do, and the game lobby is always full, u will find millions to play with even if its 3 in the morning
cunnilumpkin  +   922d ago
quite sure the pc version will look much better anyway

2560x1600 with 8x aa at 60 frames


1623x922 (or whatever weird resolutions ps4/xbox1 use next gen) with 2x fxaa blur at 30 frames
2pacalypsenow  +   922d ago
Agreed it will look better on PC anyways . But Im sure Ps4 games will be 1080p and seriously out of all the PC gamers ,who can really Game at 2560X1600 1% ? 2%?

I really don't know about all others but myself, my brother and my 2 close friends from work all have 30" 2560x1600 or 2560x1440 monitors, also use a 55" Samsung tv in the living room, but the quality on the 30" 100% destroys the Sammy

also, ps4 games will not all be native 1920x1080...I 100% am sure, we will see many weird resolutions on both ps4 and xbox1

It's about the features 'behind' the visuals. Physics, crowd, etc. This is why Ignite is being used and not about the visuals themselves

Are u retarded? Fifa has always ran at 60 fps even on consoles, but overall PC verion still looks better. But u are beyond retard if u actually think higher res makes a game look better
Brucis  +   922d ago
EA is just trying to piss off everybody it seems.
Pcgamer1991  +   921d ago
Its 2010 all over again, DAMN EA, no wonder they voted u the worst company in USA, why in heaven's name will u not put the ignite engine when most PC gamers have the machine to run it?????????????
