    Fuck this shit, Ultimate Team team is an exclusive? I am so mad that I do not want to buy an Xbox One, I want to buy a piece of hardware if it’s a good piece of hardware, not of some greedy bitches from EA accepted a deal so they could make some more money. Honestly I see no reason to buy FIFA anymore if I cannot get ultimate team, only differences is updated teams.

    Is it just an EA Sports partnership? Since Microsoft are in bed in Activision for Call of Duty, surely they can’t be in bed with EA as well since both games are competitors.

    If the new Kinect is as good as it looked in the video (doubt it though) I’m really hoping for 1:1 real time motion capture. Not stupid gestures to perform tasks but an actual mirror of yourself inside the game.

    Totally meaningless “partnerships” Microsoft’s version of Sony Guy Monologue.

    Guys calm down. A mode ‘within’ Ultimate Team is exclusive. Not Ultimate Team itself.
