EA Announces Partnership with F.C. Barcelona for FIFA 14
Posted by Jack Gardner
What I am trying to say is that F.C. Barcelona is PRETTY GOOD AT SOCCER.
“Joining a world class soccer club like Barcelona as an Official Club Partner is a fantastic opportunity for EA Sports and our fans,” said Matt Bilbey, Senior Vice President and Group General Manager at EA Sports.
As a result of F.C. Barcelona’s partnership with EA, 17 players will have their likenesses scanned into FIFA 14 in what one might assume to be higher detail than lesser known players from less popular teams.
It will be interesting to see if news like this and Microsoft’s promise to bring exclusive FIFA downloadable content to the Xbox One will impact the popularity Sony’s consoles have traditionally had in the past.
