EA Sports WTF Have You Done To FIFA 14 On PS3?

MasonicGamer: This should be my review for FIFA 14 on the PS3 but instead this is an open letter to EA Sports so they can explain WTF is going on with the bug ridden FIFA 14 on the PS3.

I have been a FIFA player for years and always look forward to the latest yearly update. The subtle changes over the years have always been a welcome addition. So with FIFA 14 having a massive overhaul I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a review copy.

Now this is where I ‘m torn. Yes EA sent me a review copy and therefore my head says I should try and do justice to EA Sports and try and stay in their good books but, my heart says stick my head above the parapet and do what I always try and do; tell the truth to our readers.

So what is wrong with FIFA 14 on the PS3?

Weren't they ranked #1 as worst company or something like that.. or was it Activision

Fifa was one of the only things they had that was working well year after year. How can you ruin that?

atr913920d ago

EA. Twice. The Golden Turd award and I guess they're looking for another one.

KAEM73919d ago

EA really is messing things up. I like a lot of their IP's but hate how they handle it and being turd of the year twice is deserved.

Kind of hard to tell what is truth out there anymore. FIFA 13 scoring great by critics while I wouldn't dare give a buggy mess like that above a 7.

I am really on the fence this year.


Agree = Release PES6 HD
Disagree = I'd prefer my buginfested FIFA from the rotting human corpse of robot moneyprinting EA

pompombrum3919d ago

LEAVE EA ALONE! This is clearly a fine example of terrible journalism aimed at soiling the flawless name of EA. The real culprits to Fifa's problems are not EA but the homophobes and disgruntled Madden fans who aren't happy with EA's choice of cover athletes.

EA's worst company ranking was a joke by rabid internet trolls. While company actions all of the US lead to environmental destruction, deaths, sweat shops, employees screwed out of benefits, jobs, pensions, etc..etc... somehow EA is voted worst company by geeks pissed about Mass Effect's ending or whatever the hell they're up in arms about this week.

Other company's decisions actually kill people or throw global economic markets into turmoil. EA pisses people off with micro-transactions. The "worst company" online poll is a complete farce.

What's interesting is even a quick glance at reviews from other reputable review sources reveal not a single issue as described in this review. Not one. If these problems were as widespread throughout the game, how is it not one other review has so far made a note of these issues? Most seem to believe the game is fantastic.

It almost sounds like there's something wrong with this guy's PS3 because how could it be that no one has noticed these problems? Can anyone confirm what this guy says is true, or is it just another case of low balling popular game reviews for hits?

hellzsupernova3919d ago

i have to agree. EA is no where near the worst company. Its a joke that they are even nominated. People need to start being passionate about stuff that really matters, who cares about the ending of Mass Effect, which is why they won it last time i believe its ridiculous

DOMination-3919d ago

I agree too. People still hate them for the ME ending despite it being two years ago.

Get over it people and move on!

I've read a few reviews from the bigger sites and no one else mentioned menu lag being a problem. I'm not doubting what you're saying, but is it 10 seconds swapping between players or is this an exaggeration? What other reviewers noticed this that you've seen? Most sites are saying this is a must have game for any football fan.

EA: "We have introduced the Update as DLC! We are just looking out for you guys! It's a small price to pay to fix your game! Why not do it for 4.99$?"

1nsomniac3920d ago

How can it possibly be that bad when compared to the demo, which was fine.... So your saying from the release of the demo the development has actually gone backwards???

stubbed_out3919d ago

I'm thinking the same, general reviews so far have said menus are a little faster etc etc but this guy's copy seems awful. Currently at work, expecting FIFA in the post today...maybe I'll just go out and get smashed rather than play this tonight. Either way, I'm definitely getting PES 14 for the PC...providing there aren't framerate drops like the PS3 demo.

sourav933919d ago

I have PES 14 on PC, and you don't have to worry about frame drops, that is, if you have the appropriate GPU.

antbolton893920d ago

Something tells me this has something to do with the Microsoft partnership,well done EA just shit all over the fans that made this franchise what it is

jeffgoldwin3920d ago

Prolly thank that wonderful cell cpu more than anything else. Not like this is a new issue, happens with most all multiplatform games.

sourav933919d ago

Is that why most multiplatform games coming out nowadays are better on PS3?

GraveLord3919d ago

Cell hasn't been an issue for years.
Just overworked devs working on 5+ platforms.

Skate-AK3920d ago

I hope you don't really believe that.

Blackdeath_6633919d ago

nope mostly to do with the ignite engine which works badly on PS3 either on purpose (they don't plan to support the ps3 for long after next gen) or just poor optimisation having prioritised next gen consoles and the 360. considering they made a fifa 13 for ps2 i don't imagine EA not making a fifa game on ps3 for many years to come. personally i would recommend not buying fifa on ps3 for at least another year or 2 unless it can be fixed via patches

Skate-AK3919d ago

The Ignite Engine is for PS4 and Xbone only. I say it is just poor optimization.

first1NFANTRY3920d ago

well i always skip a Fifa every second release so i won't be getting 14. but seriously people shouldn't be surprised by this. Fifa on the ps3 has been a bug ridden mess since the first release. why they can never have a completed game is beyond me. anyway getting PES14 when it hit's next gen consoles.

Blackdeath_6633919d ago

apparently PES14 is promising i havent seen any gameplay of a pes game since i stopped using my PS2 latest PES i played was 2008 i think i played every PES game before that. fifa 12 is the only football game i bought or will buy this gen
