FIFA 14 on Nintendo systems is recycled from last year’s game

The latest iteration of FIFA hits stores this week, we know it’s not coming to the Wii U – this is EA we’re talking about. The game though is coming to the Wii and 3DS however, but you might have played it already.

Dubbed ‘Legacy Edition’, the game on 3DS, Wii and even the Vita are simply roster and player updates. The games are exactly as the same as they were the year before. There are no changes to the gameplay, game modes or how the game looks.

This isn’t the first time EA have done this to Nintendo owners, last year’s FIFA 13 on the Wii was exactly the same as FIFA 12. This means now EA has been recycling the same game now for three years.

But at least they’re being honest about it right?

So how much would you expect to pay for these Legacy Editions? Well they’re cheaper than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, but still come in at $50.

If you think that’s worth $50, then buy FIFA 13 on the Wii, 3DS or Vita when they’re out this week.

    Now while these EA sports games get lesser updates every year on all platforms, now it is just plain obvious that they have really given up. Shame really.

    Not content with releasing almost the same game every year, the new business practice is to release exactly the same game every year. Bravo!

    The problem is that no one will buy them that knows this, so the sales drop, so they keep doing it.

    I can understand that the games will be essentially the same every year, but the LEAST they could do is at least try to fix any bugs, improve performance, enhance the visuals etc., rather than just shamelessly re-release the same game at full price.

    What’s even more pathetic is that EA didn’t feel that the Wii U was even worth the “legacy” treatment, not even as an eShop exclusive. EA’s greed certainly knows no bounds.
