Is EA Sports' World Cup game just a shameless cash-in?

Couldn't they just have released this as a DLC instead of expecting customers to fork out full price? (PS3, Xbox 360)

they've released these every world cup since 1998

It was harder to make DLC in '98. Now it is a different game.

It is about the money.

They did a downloadable euro 2012 add on for FIFA 12, it only cost £15.

Exactly ferthepoet. Cor blimey "DLC IS EVIL, DLC IS EVIL" and now this article wants DLC instead of the thing they have been doing the last 16 years. Make up your mind.

EA in the same sentence as "Shameless cash-in"? Pretty much goes without saying.

Every 4 years they should only release the World Cup edition because it is better (more teams, etc...)

I guess it depends.. the World cup 2010 game was brilliant and I more than got my value for money with that game. However at present we're in the transition in consoles and that has to spread the developer's resources thin especially with Fifa 15 out in just over seven months. It wouldn't surprise me if this world cup game didn't match the ridiculously high standard of the last one.

I actually like that they release a separate game for the World Cup it's only every 4 years can't wait for the release. The World Cup is my favorite sports event I just wish they would release this also for next gen I'm not to happy about that.
