EA Sports has said if fans want the next UEFA European Football Championship to be released in boxed form, all they have to do is ask enough. Speaking with MCV, the firm’s EVP Andrew Wilson said Euro 2012 was released as DLC for FIFA 12 because fans asked, however, it doesn’t mean the same apply with the 2014 World Cup game. “Gamers in all honesty asked for it to be delivered that way, and what you’ve seen from us over the last 18 months, is that we are listening to gamers more now ever before,” he said. “When you asked ‘will all tournaments go this way?’, we will do things based on gamer demand. And you know with 25 million people engaged playing 10 million games a day with us, and with nearly 20 million Facebook fans involved in a daily conversation about what we do and how we do it, not to mention the many millions of people in our forums.
“We’re going to listen and we’re going to do our best to deliver what is asked for by gamers.” Thanks, MCV.

“A world where we’re not involved in fighting is a world I’d rather not think about. That said, what goes on in the sport, and what’s gone on between the UFC and Strikeforce, certainly has an impact on what we can do in the space. I am, other than [EA Sports MMA executive producer] Dale Jackson, probably the biggest MMA fan here. So it’s not a ‘no,’ but it’s also not a ‘yes’. “We’d love for there to be one because I’m a diehard fan of the sport. We have to figure out how to make that happen.” – EA Sports’ chief of development Andrew Wilson told Kotaku on the chances of an MMA sequel.

EA Sports’ senior vice president of worldwide development, Andrew Wilson, talking to Eurogamer: “We have not focused on PS Move for FIFA, but that’s not to say we won’t. There have been different problems we’re solving as we go through the process. That’s not one we’ve sought to solve. We’ve focused a lot with PS Move with Tiger, and we’ve looked at other sports where it seems a natural fit. What we learnt coming through the Wii development cycle is to use the controller to add value, and if the controller doesn’t add value, don’t use it. Far be it for me to say the Move controller is right or wrong for FIFA. We’ve not seen it to add value today. But it’s only one person that comes and says, ‘I’ve got a great idea.’”
Don’t worry, Sony-lovers: it won’t have Kinect support either.
