not sure if its confirmed but if this is true playing FIFA on a next gen console could be pretty expensive, don't forget to factor in the price of the console too
Precision Movement allows for proper foot planting and pivoting to take place.
Thank. You. Very. Much.Precision Movement was designed to remove the "floaty" or "skating" feel to player movement.
Meh. Looks the sameEA had an ace up their sleeve. Precision movement was an unannounced feature/bombshell. One that has made me very, very happy.

As a knock-on, however, the game slows down considerably in midfield, and while the game's being sold this year partly on its embracing of playmakers like Pirlo and Xavi, I can't help but feel if this isn't quite what we want from a football game. Pirlo and Xavi are aesthetes to admire, but only a true football hipster would rather be blessed with their talents than those of either of the Ronaldos. If games are about wish-fulfillment, then Fifa should be Roy of the Rovers, not Jonathan Wilson's Inverting the Pyramid.
LinkAdd-in revamped ball-protecting and better team-mate intelligence in defence, and you essentially have a game that rewards patient, possession-based play much more than in recent years. As an impatient player who's relied on chipped through-balls and constantly holding down right-trigger for the past decade, I have mixed feelings about this. If you're prepared to put in the time, I'm sure it would be hugely rewarding to learn to get your Norwich team playing tiki-taka. But should a game like FIFA, with such a large, and largely casual audience, demand such an effort? Perhaps that's a debate for another day.
To be honest, that Eurogamer article is about the best advertising EA could have possibly hoped for in a weird sense.

Tom's will be up fairly shortly. There's a podcast coming fairly soon as well, not sure quite when.
Yes I always get dismayed when I realise that FIFA looks like football every single year.Meh. Looks the same
