EA will be releasing FIFA 14 on the Vita this year, but it will be exactly the same game as the original Vita FIFA title, FIFA Football. This rather disturbing news comes from EA Sports’ David Rutter, via an interview with Eurogamer.
“There will be a Vita version, and it’ll be the same great gameplay…It’s the same great gameplay and new kits,” Rutter said when questioned about FIFA 14 on Sony’s handheld.
Charging full price for what is essentially a squad update with no new gameplay improvements is a joke. Well it would be if this was funny. With the lack of any competition from other football games on the Vita, EA really do currently have the license to do as they please.
The only way a change would occur is if EA saw lost revenue, or PES arrived on the system to challenge FIFA’s monopoly.
