The FIFA 08 demo has just been released on Xbox Live, unfortunately however Europe is not included in the list of countries for which this is available.
N0000000oooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooo!!! Tell me it's not true ;-( , no confirmation on the PS3 demo yet so fingers crossed the same issues don't apply to the PS3 demo in Europe.
Am pretty sure ps3 demo is delayed too. However you can and probably should jst get an american psn account and you will be able to access the american store and download the demo from there. As soon as it starts downloading you can switch back to your old account and the download continues. Do it all the time. However with xbox live i heard getting another account can get you banned or sumthin i am not a 100% sure about this but i do knw there is some consequence
EVERYBODY TAKE A DEEP BREATH. its jus been released on the EU store for the ps3. not sure about xbox live thou
I played the demo, game is NOT worth, pretty but awful gameplay and poor AI, they announced Fifa 08 as one "piece of art", after all it's just the same old crap in HD.
I was thinking in getting this game (until yesterday), very disapointing indeed.
PES 08 order in place.
What a joke.
Europe is 90% of the soccer market.
Seems ridiculous not to release it there first.
Sooo ... How's this PS3news?
WTF, Europe IS FOOTBALL. What the hell are EA doing do they not want to sell the game
What about SOUTH AMERICA!!! THEY ARE FOOTBALL TOO!
This is like releasing an NFL demo...but not in the States...
...The Only Continant that buys the dam game does not get the demo, Well done M$
skillednutter, pretty much every continent buys fifa
If not for the massive sales of this franchise in Europe this game would not be business viable for EA to release year in year out.
If not for Europe you would be lucky to see a new game every 3 years and the same can be said for North America and Madden.
Why is this in the PS3 section?
because.. it's not still in the store?
football is easily the most popular sport in the world and the demo of one of the two top football games is released in the only continent that never really got going with it??? that makes sense
i recon us europeans should teach EA a lesson and boycott fifa alltogether.then spend you hard earn cash on the proper football game in pro evo.then see what ea thinks of that.giving to the yanks first over europe what a joke.
Yes just wait for PES
im definatly gettin pes bt may as well give the demo of fifa a whirl, hopes its multiplayer
the last fifa demo was half a match with set teams and single player only
EA sucks what a joke not releasing it in europe i totally agree with deepio's comment. Bring on Pro Evo!! This is marketing EA style what a joke.
its on the EU PSN now !!! :D
are you sure, that would be kinda strange :/
anywayz hope it is... is the game good?
'cause i ain't seeing no demo. just the nba live 2008 demo. post pics.
This is pic is of Fifa only, did not take a pic of NBA Live but it is on their along with Harry Potter and some new DLC for other games.
i had to create a UK account, so i'm downloading as well.
Unfortunately the only other demo that accompanied it as far as I can tell is the shambolically awful Harry Potter
..NBA Live 08 demo is on there also.
31% downloaded on Fifa at the mo, is 751mb.
still downloading it :( takin quite long
It isn't always Microsoft's fault when a demo doesn't make it to the dammed market place so quit acting like children.
EA have delayed the demo for Europe from both the xbox360 AND the PS3 - it is EA's fault not Microsoft's.
The demo itself is single player 1 1/2 period. It looks pretty nice, plays slightly differently (ball passing is not as easily accurate as in straight to the player you thought it would go to) and the default ai / player induced player switching is slow by default.
The lobby is cool when you run full speed with Ronny, the screen jutters like it does when your running on Gears of war and the tricks you can pull off are really cool, i had ronny running and flipped the mall over his head, past the keeper then shot into the goal, slick.
...this is on the UK PSN store and I'm downloading it now.
Not saying it's MS's fault or anything ok, just to be clear.
God knows why European 360 owners are being left out, makes no sense, especially as the game is meant to run slighty better on 360.
......EA would have given this DEMO to both M$ and Sony at least 2 days ago to put on there networks.
M$ is responsible for putting that content on Market Place not EA, so it not being available on the UK's Market Place will be down to M$ not EA.
Also seems its up on PSN UK that proves that EA have not put a contractual Hold on the Demo for the UK.
So no excuse for M$
This isn't on my store (I'm Irish) but I thought everyone in europe got the same PSN content.
does anyone else think the new controller layouts suck?
i'm really hoping there are more options in the final game
I downloaded the demo for 360 and i really like it. I'll try downloading for ps3 later and compare them both. Then i'll base my purchase on what i think it's best, not what fanboys or reviewers think is best.
I love the intro with Ronaldhino going 1on1 with the keeper, i must've shot the ball around for 20 mins.
I think the controller layout is very similar to UEFA Champions League. It takes some getting used to the 360 layout if you're used to playing on PS2, but eventually it gets better.
nevermind, the demo will be on live in the near future. no biggy. For the time being we get to play the new spiderman friend or foe demo (uk) woohooo! : |
I was very disapointed today on the news that fifa would not be in europe, but to my amazment i looged in to the psn and rubbed my eyes 3/4 times and there was fifa in EUROPE THE BIGGEST FOOTBALL SUPPORTERS IN THE WORLD. WOW ive just finnished givin it a go and its not to bad but wiv it being a demo and only a smidgin of wat the full game will be its hard to say if its gonna be any good, the controls are very good and graphics are also good. but theres no one player ina team action very dissapointed.
using the R2 to sprint has got to be the dumbest idea ever.
you shoulda seen how pissed I was when playing madden i realized the moved the buttons around. R2 is sprint??? L2 is Strafe??? X is stiff arm??????? you gotta be freaking kidding me, worst control setup I have ever seen, and all thanks to the stupid xbox controller.
The demo is only 2 minutes of game play if not less But its good
At this moment I supose you don't know other soccer games around, I played demo and Fifa 08 is crap, just pretty in HD, nothing more.
Poor AI and gameplay is awful, not to say true crap. They are trying to replicate PES controls but they forgot to work on gameplay.
Until PES 08 gets out in October 26, look into PES 6 on PS2/3 so you can see what is true gameplay for soccer.
its ok not that good..ill take pro evo any day
