It has been revealed that with the new update FIFA 09 will be getting full trophy support. Earlier this week it was announced that a new downloadable pack, ‘Ultimate Team’, would bring some trophies to the game but now it has come to light that a full set of trophies is to be implemented in a free patch.

Just after the release after the winter update, there’s more FIFA 09 news to share. Announced this morning was some new downloadable content for EA’s popular footy game and it sounds, well, kinda cool. The new ‘Ultimate Team’ mode is said to “deliver a strategic new online experience” to the game. The challenge is for the player to create or collect the best team and compete against others worldwide. This new downloadable content will also add trophy support to the PS3 version of the game, which is really cool, but why not just give the whole game trophies?

The mode is card based (wait don’t stop reading yet), players need to collect bronze, silver and gold cards. It’s not only players you’ll be collecting either, coaching staff will be available too, as well as different formations and contract upgrades.

You’ll also be able to create your own team. You’ll be able to:

” Customize everything from players and stadiums to the kits and badges, creating the world’s next great football club. Compete offline and online to earn more valuable cards or trawl the market for the ones needed to complete a winning team. Climb the league table or compete in knockout tournaments for the most coveted trophies, where the opposition becomes more difficult after each victory.”

The ‘Ultimate Team’ content will be available to download from March 19th (more than likely 20th for PS3). The press release also states that some kind of trial will be available to players, allowing them to try before they buy. Sounds, alright. No pricing has been announced as of yet, rest assured we’ll keep you informed on all the latest goings on. Hit the jump for screenshots. Continue reading

FIFA 09 Winter Update, Out Now by Ad's

UPDATE: The update is now out, to get it go to Adidas Live Season and download the latest update. If it comes back saying you have the latest update go to league selection and click on the league of your choice. I chose the Premier League so I clicked on that and downloaded the latest update from there.

EA’s David Rutter has confirmed that the FIFA 09 Winter Update will be delayed due to a small bug. They are hopeful that it will be released either today or tomorrow.

I’m particularly looking foward to it as my beloved United will hopefully have had their stats changed to a more realistic level, Danny Welbeck a 64 for gods sake and Berba deserves more than an 86. Also Edwin’s rating has gone down drastically on the inaccurate Adidas Live Update, this after keeping 13 consecutive Premier League clean sheets.

It will also update the transfers that took place during the January transfer window. Tosic to Utd, Keane back at Spurs, Becks to Milan etc. Full quote from the FIFA forum after the jump. Continue reading

It’s taken a while, but EA have finally announced they are going to patch FIFA 09. Although the game is the best football (soccer) game on the market, it does have it’s flaws. For example players will take really stupid squad numbers in Manager Mode, leaving many players (yours truly included) more than frustrated. EA are also addressing a number of other issues people are having with the game. Hit the jump for the details. Continue reading

FIFA 09 Patch Petition by Anthony Barlow

I would first like to point out that there was a small discrepancy with my FIFA 09 review that went up a few weeks back. I failed to mention that in ‘Manager Mode’ you are unable to change the squad numbers of players, something which has been a feature of FIFA for years.

This has obviously caused some outrage within the FIFA 09 community and members have created a petition thread on the forums, lets hope EA take notice. I said i’d plug them on here, as I think it’s really dissapointing that it’s not in there. To voice your outrage (as you should), go here.

I said a few months back I wanted to add a few more community features to the site and a ‘Goal Of The Month’ competition for FIFA 09 was one of them. Well it’s kicked off (sorry). This week’s goal comes curtosey of our very own King Of Comments, Ad’s.

Sorry for the crappy quality, iPhone vids converted to FLV on YouTube aren’t gonna look that great. Hopefully EA will have their EA Sportsworld service (or whatever) up and running soon enough.
