I thought winning eleven was also a big football game.

If there’s an organization that is more corrupt than EA, it’s for sure FIFA.

I also agree that EA has done more for FIFA on brand awareness too. I know of people that thought FIFA was an EA brand similar to Madden instead of their own independent organization.

Profchaos226d ago

Probably a good call on Sony's part given the relationship they needed to build with ea over time and given the era if EA didn't want something they found ways around it such as building their own unlicensed games and bypassing console copyright protection on 16 bit systems to avoid paying licensing

XiNatsuDragnel226d ago

Fifa with playstation I would've preferred that over EA now tbh.

Seraphim226d ago

guess you don't remember how bad those Sony sports titles were in the 90s. The only exception would be NBA Shootout '97 which was phenomenal.

shinoff2183225d ago

Idk what that means. Nfl GameDay was fun as fk.

FinalFantasyFanatic226d ago

I never liked sports games personally, except for ESPN Extreme Games, that was fun for me back in the day.

gold_drake226d ago

the Fifa people are some of the scummiest people there is, even outside of the gaming industry.

good on that sony ceo for actually talking to EA first and letting them know what happened.

The career mode would have been way better.

First I don't think ms would get the nod, they wouldn't be able to get away with it being exclusives. Second it's to big of a game to just put on gamepass and call it a day. I think Konami , sega or 2k could do it justice.

Knightofelemia407d ago

Konami made or should I say farmed out a soccer game and it was a piece of broken shit.

XbladeTeddy407d ago

Konami making a football game? Just no. They dropped the ball on that one with their poor version.

EA have cemented a name for themselves with football games. Minus the crappy practises the core gameplay is unbeaten.

badboyz09407d ago

2K are the best option they also just purchased The Top Eleven Developer's in 2021.

TheColbertinator407d ago

Even if you get the license, what matters is getting the clubs and leagues that matter to fans. I'd pay good money to anyone who can get every team in the Top 5 Leagues and their stadiums to boot. EA has come close.

XbladeTeddy407d ago

"Even if you get the license, what matters is getting the clubs and leagues that matter to fans"

No, gameplay matters most. EA will do that without a license.

franwex407d ago

They could, but the price is obscene.

FIFA’s New Game Decisions Make EA Games Looks Better

Gamerterra writes: "FIFA recently announced its first four games after its long-term partnership with EA ended, and these new games make EA games look really consumer friendly. All four ‘games’ are blockchain projects built with Web 3.0 for the 2022 World Cup."

That's like saying Mephistopheles is nicer than Satan.

This is funny, even EA thought FIFIA's blockchain proposal was too much.
