Was seeing gameplay footage from AA9, Fuji in WL and it honestly made me consider getting a console. Most of their goals are by beating players on counter with their opponent CB at halfway line.
I don't get that on PC, out of my 25 games 20 of them are against players that never pull their players out of position, know every game mechanic, ball roll pass and dragback the hell for 90 minutes. If you want to win you have to work for a goal.
So I'm thinking of moving to a more casual playerbase



Do they still make console + fifa deals each year? when can you usually start to preorder it?
Any advantages to ps or xbox over each other?

    I'm reading stuff about ps plus and like the free game deal
    Do they put triple A titles or just indie games?

    Yea they do console + FIFA deals every year still, usually they drop like a few weeks before the game drops and they will arrive the day it comes out iirc.

    As for PS vs Xbox, its all preference (controller, what your friends play on, what other game exclusives you like)

    AAA games usually, they give away some great games. God of War is the best exclusive of this generation, it's a masterpiece.

    Usually a big game with a few Indie games. Sometimes it's a good month, sometimes it sucks.

    PS has the bigger playerbase (at least when it comes to Fifa). When a new Fifa comes out there's usually a bundle deal that comes out.
  • Go to my PS4 and 2 controllers brand new for 200 when Fifa 17 dropped and I think some places had a similar deal when 18 dropped

    A bit of both, it's the same on Xbox.

    End of the day, both consoles are very similar and it all comes down to controller preference, game exclusives and which you have more friends on.

    That being said I own both and the PS4 has a smoother connection online

    Nothing brand new, but been some great games from 2016+17 recently. Metal Gear and ratchet and clank have been out recently. Usually one game that’s been well received and another indie title.

    Agree on GOD of War, it’s incredible!

    I've had all consoles and PS4 is still my fave. Better exclusives and paying for online gives you ps plus which is two free games a month. Also, looks flawless on my 4k tv (I have the pro) and the Xbox one x is more expensive.

    If you only play fifa I would get which console you like the controller best on. But if you like to play other games get PS4.

    Jokes aside, I was playing on PC from FUT13-FUT16 and it was traumatic expirience...just because cheaters and quitters, you couldn't play games sometimes for and hour.

    Are they still there ?

    This. Very true. If you only play games that are always out on both, like CoD and FIFA, then choose your favoured console. If you play a lot of different games then playstation. Better exclusives.

    Not from the year. Like we'll never get god of war now. Hut in a year then probably. Metal gear solid V was one of the free games a few months ago.

    Tried to play futdraft the other day, had to start 15 games to get opponents to get to the semifinal, all others quit after kick off. And even the 2 games that i won i think the opponent used the quit and get the win cheat. Even in WL they have cheats. But i don't play the game for the gameplay anyway so i can live with that as long as i dont get losses

    Been playing Fifa on PC this year, it's bad. There's 3 different cheats being used, one which allows legacy defending online, one which gives your players 99 in every stat and the last one is make your players giant (usually coupled with the 99 cheat).
    Legacy defending cheat is more common, i faced about 8 of them in the last WL.

    Certainly not getting any future Fifa's on PC.

    Probably why WL on PC can't qualify you for the eWorld Cup.
