Okay, the score was off, as was the estimate that Germany would be playing host nation Brazil in the final – that humiliation happened a lot sooner.

But! Germany won the World Cup last night, as predicted by EA on June 5th.

Video games can predict the future. Let’s hope all those post-apocalyptic scenarios we play through in other games don’t actually come to pass.
