EA Announces FIFA 09 Release Date

Okay, soccer fans, we know you've been waiting on an official release date for FIFA 09, and now it seems we have one. This year's installment is already generating a great deal of hype, mostly because early previews and details have pointed towards one very encouraging possibility: this one might be the "futbol" simulator next-gen gamers have been waiting for.

According to MCV, EA has revealed that FIFA 09 will release for all major platforms on October 3. Recently, the Pro Evolution Soccer series has been topping EA's long-running soccer franchise due to better overall authenticity and control, but that may change come fall. Senior product manager Trevor Uzice reminds everyone how hard they've worked to make FIFA 09 stand out from the competition.

"We've made over 250 improvements from last year and we wanted to give the team the time they needed to make the best FIFA game possible. We're continuing to build on the solid foundation from last year which saw us create the most successful FIFA both in terms of sales and quality."

Uzice also revealed that EA has been working with "several Premier League clubs," which should allow them to forge a closer bond with fans of the sport. They'll be "working with all clubs from the Championship, Division 1 and Division 2," and all in all, this year's entry is striving to be the most robust installment yet. It should be well worth our time!

Yeah I think it's an exclusive "Game Mode". Probably something "cool" and "street" for the kids to "get down wiv". I hate EA and I hate FIFA with its big flashy "look at me! I'm crammed with som many useless fatures and because I have the Pro License everyone will buy me even though I'm an awful football simulator"...or at least that's what I imagine Fifa would say. I mean if the head of Fifa can have nonsensical rants about players on £100k a week being slaves, why wouldn't the game be as ridiculous...
BUY PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER!!!
