Sentral Gamer weigh in on the rumour of a free game bundled with every Xbox One console, should it be FIFA 14?
FIFA 14 in Europe. But you could buy PS4 and FIFA, and still save money as compared to the Xbox One/FIFA 14 Bundle. PS4 + Fifa 14 = £390 Xb1 + Fifa 14 = £430
Crackdown or Deadrising 2?
Fifa isnt cheep game, it sell damn well, i'd say fable legend
m$ looks to be trying to increase value and get consumers onboard for a $500 price tag. i dont see a 3rd party publisher agreeing to this. my guess would be killer instinct and a full line-up of characters included. either that or lococycle.
lol for the love of god/science/love/universe. there is no way they will do this. its not even wishful thinking, its below that.
It's stupid to think that EA will just give away their highest selling game with every Xbox. Wishful thinking.
@HammadTheBeast It depends on how much Microsoft gave them. It isn't like FIFA is going exclusive. They may have an exclusive deal for a bundle which Microsoft pays the extra cost. This would be one massive and expensive deal though
@dirty and hammad while i don't believe it's going to be Fifa it wouldn't be out of microsoft reach a 300 million expenditure to bundle fifa with each box... it'd reduce the (rumored) profit per console to 50/60 dollars a box not exactly piss poor considering the PS3 sold at a considerable loss due to the inclusion of the blu ray which at the time was ridiculously high in price which isn't bad considering they'll make anywhere from 45-60 from XBL which is almost entirely net profit
the stupidity on here is shocking. what do you think that this is some sort of good will gesture? that "free" games are free? that the games bundles dont cost anything??? are you people that stupid?????? bundled games are PAID for by the who ever is giving them out! a quick example for hammad and dirtypimp. say fifa retails at £50. EA takes for example £35, microsoft take say £10 in royalties and the retailer £5 ( i obviously dont know the exact breakdown). what will happen is this. microsoft will PAY EA the £35 and the retailers cut (if this is disc based) and not collect their royalties. EA ARE STILL MAKING THEIR MONEY WHATEVER HAPPENS!!!! IT IS NOT A GIFT FROM EA clear enough for you guys and the dimwits who agreed?? rofl
Why are you talking about the PS4, I thought this was Xbox One article.
@Fez no, I'm good
Just Dance 2014 - Kinect support - Family-friendly - Not just popular in Europe - Wouldn't cost a fortune for MS, unlike FIFA - Relies heavily on DLC, which would make this profitable for Ubi. A free FIFA with every console would make no sense at all for EA, unless MS directly paid them the price of every game bundled with the X1, which would make no sense for MS since they'd be better off just reducing the X1's price while they're at it. In my opinion, this is the game that makes the most sense
if anything they should include that new kinect sports bull sh#t
Well it depends where you get it from Amazon PS4+FIFA= £396 ONE + FIFA (if the bundle is free)= £429 The idea is persuade consumers to get it making the $100 seem a lot less (which it does). The next big thing to look at is when these things release. If Microsoft release too far away from the FIFA release date this move may not have the impact they desire. edit @below sorry didn't put the correct UK currancy
I'm not sure how you got those numbers... One base price is $499... so....
Oh there we go then lol.
Add the camera aswell because I would want the ps4 cam
But you still get kinect for that price.
god damn it you guys just keep getting dumber and dumber ... its an exclusive game for X1 its not fifa
Exclusive bundle, not platform exclusive. Might want to be careful calling others stupid, as it can make you look doubly so.
Yep your right but you still don't get ps eye that's extra money for you.
If it is FIFA will EA allow online multiplier play????
@allformats "But you could buy PS4 and FIFA, and still save money as compared to the Xbox One/FIFA 14 Bundle." People were buying the One without a free game. This sweetens the deal for them and maybe gets a few people on board who were holding out. Who cares what relation the price is to the PS4?
Yeah of course they give Fifa14 just for free, lol. That's like everyone gets the new COD for free in america. FIFA is #1 selling franchise in europe.
Dude how do we know its fifa and even at that your analysis is not necessary. At £430 you get the console, kinect 2 and a free game (an aa game most likely)..its totally worth the price of admission. I have been saying this MS is going all out this gen.expect a lot more deals with 3rd party devs..a lot more.
Isn't Killer Instinct already a free game that comes with the console ? It's not a free to win game ?
Technically yes. I would call it a demo given to get all the characters you have pay.
true, either way it will be interesting, really MS need to release the Xbone 5th November, if the console is out end of Nov why would someone wait 3 weeks after Ghosts release dat for the next gen one?
The game is probably Ubisofts Fighter Within - unique third party game for Kinect
or maybe the exclusive from platinumgames (rumors says they are doing an exclusive for MS)
Do they mean Killer Instinct?
KI will will be free but with limited content. Sort of like Drive Club on the PS4.
You mean EXTREMELY limited F2p that requires a Gold membership and you get 1 character, so IF your character is not Jago then you get to purchase your character for $5-10 bucks.... Good thing Sony doesn't require PS+ for F2P games...Oh wait they don't nickle and dime the hell out of people with battery packs, headset adapters and making people pay to use apps they pay for a subscription for
The reason i said KI is because it technically does come with your X1 unless they are adding another game which I'm unaware of and on Killer Instinct you get one character i believe on Driveclub you basically have almost the full game minues a few tracks and cars i believe.
KI is not F2P... Don't believe me? "No way in fu#$%ng hell is Killer Instinct free to play." - Ken Lobb
This is the type of positive customer courting M$ need to be doing! I just pray for the Xbone and Fans sake that there are no whacked out strings attached and not BUNGLED with a free game!
I am sure many people are gong to disagree with me, but M$ needs to stick to their guns and hope for the best. I am getting tired of every week being a new thing that makes the XB1 more desirable. Between the policies being reversed (great choice, but it would have been best to leave it as an opt in or out situation), headset being added, a sticker (almost got me to buy one!), double A batteries (this is when they sold me.), Kinect being optional and now a game... it just seems like they're way too desperate for sales. Even Sony / Nintendo let their systems float around not selling for quite a while without resorting to massive backtracking / more and more bundling. Would much rather see M$ win me over with a strong line up / positive features, not caving into every demand / whim of the consumer.
It time now for M$ to finally draw a line in the sand and show commitment to their new vision. Confidence in their own product is what is going to ultimately sell Xbones. Gamers tend to research, study and analysis their gaming choices and can easily sniff out anything that seems dodgy but they can be equally forgiving once they get behind a product that appeals and reaches out to them. PS4 certainly has the hardware experience but M$ can really trump SONY when it comes to presentation of the gaming experience!
They don't have a vision they probably never did have a real strong plan they just wanted to see what they could get away with and when their console got crushed by PS4 pre orders it was time to start backtracking....It looks weak and shows that they never had any real commitment to their initial plan
I doubt it's FIFA 14. More like a FIFA f2p like the one for PC. http://uk.gamespot.com/news...
That's..... actually really what I expect.
Ps4+ battlefield 4+driveclub=sorted
Are you that hurt about this bit of news, that you have to make yourself feel better?
What exactly would anyone have to be hurt about lol....Sony isn't the one that needs to change their vision daily to sell consoles....This smells of desperation and grasping at straws because Microsoft's numbers still aren't strong enough for them
Oh, random burn!
That would be cool but this isn't about the PlayStation. Honestly you guys need to stay in your own articles.
More like putting lunatics back in their asylum. =)
It's highly likely that it will be a free to play game. I don't see any 3rd party giving a game away for free, and it's not like Microsoft will pay the publisher $60 for every Xbox One sold. A free to play title is the only thing that would make sense. Hopefully it's a good one. I had wished Sony would preload PlanetSide 2 on every PS4 but it doesn't look like that will happen, would have been brilliant though.
It would have been great but since you need an internet connection to play it in the first place most people won't have any problems downloading the game. Motorola RAZR i
That could be the case, will be very interesting what the title will be if it is true we get a free game
lol @ porkchop. when you buy a game at $60, that doesn't all go into the pocket of the publisher. EA would most probably take just $40
Even still, do you really think Microsoft would be paying publishers all that money for each Xbox One sold? That would be lost sales no matter what the cost is. It just isn't likely.
If there is a free game, I hope that its not limited to the European market.
sweet !!! DAY ONE X1!!! more value and ofcourse i dont mind a free game X1 looking better and better if rumor is true
Imo that should be a Kinect game, with all the fuzz recently. Jep, a game for Kinect would be best, I know the majority of day one buyers agrees with me. They like Kinect, so give them a game.
Drive club will suck mark my words
What, you don't like Kinect? It's like a steeringwheel, a sword and a remote all-in-one, and for free because it's bundled. So of course Drive Club will suck, it has no support for Kinect.
ps4+psn+drive club+warframe+planetside 2+dc universe online+war thunder+blacklight retribution = $450 xbox one+ live+ fifa 14= $560 looks like ps4 is still a better deal
the game will probably be free if you have xbox live gold just like drive club is free if you have PS plus for PS4
Depends how they go about it really. They could add X time of XBLG and the game would be free for anyone with an internet connection. Really anything is better than how the 3G Vita handled the free month and game. For those of you that didn't buy one / hear about it, you had to buy a month of ATT's poor service for $15 dollars to get the game.
Ryse would be good.
Destiny won't even be out until spring 2014, so no, it's not Destiny. A game of that calibre would never be given for free.
IF & it's a big IF its Fifa 14... PS4 £349:99 PSN £39:99 FIFA 14 £54:99 Total= £444:97 Xbox One £429.99 inc Fifa 14 & Kinect. For someone who has Xbox live & a 360 & wants to stick with Xbox it's now cheaper than the PS4 due to not having to pay for XBL as it carries over & you get the Kinect..Add the PS eye to the PS4 list & it becomes even more expensive. Nice move if indeed true.
what about those whom has PSN+ :P
