Game is not over. It has just begun. Btw funny title. Haha
Games_R_Us  +   887d ago
I love my catchy titles, but it is actually a question, hence the ? Mark. I do think given Europe is heavily driven by their love of Soccer/Football, bundling in a game like FIFA14 could definately shift more consoles there for Microsoft. Plus, with the Xbox One launching a week ahead of the PS4 in the UK, this could be very impacting indeed.

its food for though I guess. What do our European gamers think?

The title is funny bro. I know it's a question but it's a funny and silly one. Obviously game is not over. You can get FIFA and ps4 for lesser price. Even a kid knows that.

But the FIFA pre orders were only limited to day one pre orders tho. So lets say 500,000 were bundled with FIFA. That's not very many. Plus Sony has a killer ps4 bundle for Europe on the 29th with killzone SF, two controllers and the camera for the same price as the Xbox one. If its game over for anyone, it's Xbox one.

I ended up cancelling my FIFA bundle and opting for the Forza bundle instead, I also have a strong feeling we will see a free Ryse bundle in the coming weeks, I may pick that up to sell on ebay at a later date.

What if you don't even want or like fifa that make this kinda point less, even if there are lot of people that do, but hey that just me (my opinion given)

Why would it be game over when a PS4 and FIFA cost less than an Xbox One with Fifa?

Also the Xbox One will only get FIFA for a limited time and only with the first batch of preorders. Once the offer is gone an Xbox One with Fifa will cost 560€ which is 100€ higher than a PS4 with FIFA.

You also need to factor in guys, In Australia, the difference between an PS4 and a Xbox One, is just $50.

FIFA 14 costs $90 new.
Kinect is also included.

Its an absolute no brainer that the Xbox One is far better value in Australia.

as for UK, $100, I mean still, the game + Kinect is worth the difference easily.

Holy crap 90$!!! For Fifa more to say!!!!
Are all games this expensive in Australia?

So the Bundle FIFA+Xbox One is coming to Australia to. I thought it was just for the per-orders in Europe and in very limited edition.
Oh well must have heard wrong.

Um did you miss this part out?

"game over for PS4 in Europe"

I was just responding to the headline which asks if the PS4 would be in trouble in Europe.

Also another question related to this "Kinect is also included."

Do the majority of people even want Kinect to begin with?

"as for UK, $100, I mean still, the game + Kinect is worth the difference easily."

Depends if you want Kinect or not. As for the rest of Europe theres a bundle with the PS4, PlayStation Eye, extra controller and Killzone Shadow Fall for the same price as an XBOX One.

Thanks, haven't had a laugh like that in quite a while.
Games_R_Us  +   887d ago
Yes BG11579 all new releases are $89 in Australia, FIFA 14 will be no exception. And yes, for Aussie preorders, irrespective of whether its a Day 1 edition or not, everyone gets FIFA 14.
MasterCornholio  +   887d ago
Is everything so expensive in Australia due to transportation costs and taxes?
Games_R_Us  +   887d ago
Nah, companies just basically rip off Aussies and set the prices that they think we'll pay Domestically. For example, the PS4 is $399 in USA, so with our current Xchange rate it should sit around $440, instead its $500!
