Xbox Only writes: We've seen baseball cards integrated into 2K Sports' MLB 2K series and now EA Sports is getting back into the card game with a downloadable expansion for FIFA 09. Dubbed "Ultimate Team", this mode will be available on March 19 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game and will likely cost $14.99on PS3or 1200 MS points.
The new Ultimate team mode is based on ideas from the Champions League version but is a completely new version and is a much bigger and a more complete experience, particularly with regard to online. In Champions League, it was just a game mode within the game. This time around it is the game, and EA is able to put a lot more resource and effort into it.
