OMG WTF and all those other acronyms, EA has started charging for the demos of UFC and FIFA 14 for the Xbox One!
The FIFA demo was free last week but now the Xbox Live store shows a cost of $4.99, or £3.99 on our store. Let’s do a little quiz to determine what is going on, why do you think the demos for UFC and FIFA 14 now have a price tag?
- A) It is a glitch, someone at Xbox has pressed the wrong button and it will be fixed shortly.
- B) It is not a mistake, EA want all the moneys.
- C) Blame Canada
If you picked A then consider yourself a rational human being, have a nice cup of tea and wait for the problem to be fixed. You also have the option of feeling a little sorry for EA who probably have nothing to do with this and it’s Microsoft’s problem.
If you scored mostly B’s then hit as many comment sections and message boards as you can and express your anger using lots of swearing, CAPITAL LETTERS and animated Gifs.
If you scored mostly C’s then you remember the South Park movie, well done.
UPDATE: The pricing is “the result of a system error,” an EA Australia representative told Polygon. Well done if you picked option A!
UPDATE #2: “The price associated with the FIFA 14 and EA SPORTS UFC demos was due to a technical error. Both demos have now been fixed in the Microsoft store.” – Statement from EA
