FIFA 18: Electronic Arts has entered into a partnership with Sony?

There is a lot of interest in a photo published by Polish YouTuber Oskar "Junajted" Siwiec, who was recently invited to a presentation behind closed doors for FIFA 18 which was held at the Allianz Arena, home of Bayern Monaco.

Well, that's just like Activision switched partnerships from Xbox to PlayStation.

I don't blame them (EA/Fifa), why would you want to align yourself with a struggling brand with no worldwide presence for a worldwide sport. All the big games are making the same choice.

You make a good point. And while lots of big games are making the same choice, it always seemed odd that FIFA, of all games, would market with Xbox in the first place. I get that EA & Microsoft are close, but FIFA is way bigger outside of the USA than it is in the USA & Xbox (with the exception of UK where it does fairly well) is almost the polar opposite.

I doubt it. This poster is probably only relevant in Europe where we all know the Xbox sells like poop. Dont be surprised to see FIFA 18 Xbox cover in US

Xbox never struggling!!!

Chris12536d ago (Edited 536d ago )

Didn't take Overload long to spout his nonsense. One look at MS's balance sheet for the gaming division shows it isn't struggling. It will never overtake Sony in the market place but not selling as well does not equal struggling.

And what do marketing deals directly mean to gamers? Normally sweet FA. When Scorpio comes I'll sell the 'S' and it will sit very nicely next to my Pro, and all the multiplats will be played on it as they are likely to be the better versions.

You, on the other hand, will still be spitting your vile hate for all things Xbox like a sad fanboy.

You fanboys make me laugh. So salty

FIFA is also bigger on the PlayStation. Always was. It was always strange, that EA would have chosen XBox over Sony TBH. Sony is also doing a lot of CL sponsorships. I found it was always strange why EA went with MS before.

As soon as scorpio drops you'll be eating your words.

Smart companies bet on where the grass is more green (less green in this case).

MasterCornholio536d ago

Soccer/Futbol is massive in Europe. I'm not surprised if they decided to go with Sony due to how big PlayStation is in Europe.

Maybe they know something we don't know!? What we're hearing about a new console is nothing that we haven't heard from previous console generations!Some of it's true, but alot of it's false. Not only that developers are not going to flat out talk ill about potential sources of income! They have to choose their words carefully and even sidestep situations that can negatively impact them.

We all know these console makers lie about things, but if gamers took a actual poll on which company lies have the most damaging effects as a whole? I'd say 80 to 90% of the people who were honestly being truthful would pick the same company!

If we are going by the picture and nitpick of what this means obviously it is not for PS4 base console. Apparently with all this reading into the picture you all must have missed the biggest news Sony must be dropping the base unit because the picture says PS4 Pro not PS4. I mean if we are going read into something we might as go all the way with our assumptions.

Microsoft lost this partnership just like they did with the COD one. Probably had a 3-year contract and EA chose not to renew. Who can blame them? PS4 has like double the install base and its a worldwide brand.

This is a tweet from one Xbone fan published few days ago. It was intended to Phil Spencer. But it can go with this news too. It's so funny :

Damn, Sony has like all the partnerships

Overload537d ago (Edited 537d ago )

The marketing for PS4 is going to be nuts this fall-holiday season. There is going to be a commercial every 2 seconds. Not to mention they will also be heavily advertising Gran Turismo. Imagine if RDR2 didn't get delayed.

Far Cry 5 and Destiny 2 start it all off in September.

ShottyatLaw537d ago

Far Cry releases in February. Why are they advertising it in September?

Overload537d ago

I didn't mean to write Farcry 5.

steveo123456536d ago

So FIFA is only on Playstation now??


TheColbertinator537d ago

Its the Italian phrasing for Bayern Munich
