FIFA 13 | A New Beginning!

FIFA 13 has not even been on shelves for a month now and EA Sports has already sold over 4,000,000 copies. To be exact, those 4 million copies were sold in just 5 days after the release, which took place on the 25th of September. I guess there is a reason behind FIFA 13 being the best selling sports title in history. That’s quite an achievement EA, congratulations!

The game has attracted hundreds of complaints after online issues plagued users.

Let’s get to the point. FIFA 13 is a major improvement upon FIFA 12 due to numerous reasons. Electronic Arts has implemented a variety of new features such as: EAS FC catalogue, EAS FC Match Day, skill games, and others. The EAS FC catalogue now allows players to purchase various “boosts” and items which give the player certain rewards. For example, I am at level 50 so I could decide to purchase the “Push ups Goal Celebration” for 600 EAS FC  credits. I find the catalogue to be a neat feature because it allows for more fun and less rage, once you start playing you will understand. 🙂

Skill games played a large part in the promotion of FIFA 13, and I find that it has not lived up to its standards. Yes, the skill games are fun at first, however you will find that they become quite mundane as you progress in your FIFA career. With that being said, they are extremely much fun when you’re bored or trying to compete with your friends.

The FIFA 13 game features real players and team, and is the bestselling sports game in history.

FIFA ultimate team is very different this year, not only has the layout changed dramatically, the modes have been affected as well. The single matches have been removed, however, EA has implemented a new “tournament” mode that replaced the single matches in which you start at division 5 and work yourself towards division 1. I found that FUT 13 is very similar to the “seasons” game mode now, since the only two options of getting into a game is by playing FUT seasons offline or online.

FIFA 13 is by far the better game when compared to the previous FIFA’s, however there’s still some bumps here and there. It’s a really fun and enjoyable game that can be enjoyed by nearly any age groups and provides for a lot of fun and competitiveness among friends. I would recommend to pick up your copy as soon as possible, as I think the price has gone down a bit. Watch the official FIFA 13 trailer below!

Microsoft Purchasing Xbox 8 Domains

It looks as like Microsoft has purchased and secured the rights to Xbox 8 domains. Microsoft have won two disputes filed in May with the National Arbitration Forum over domains owned by Chinese resident Chen Juan. As it stands right now, Microsoft is the owner of multiple domains:

  • XboxPhone.com
  • XboxTablet.com
  • XboxLiveTV.com
  • XboxCompanion.com
  • Xbox8.us
  • Xbox8.org

There have been speculations that Microsoft purchased these domains in relation to the next-generation Xbox.

After all Microsoft have announced their new Windows 8 operating system, which is due to launch later this year.The next Xbox will reportedly use a form of Windows 8 to facilitate Microsoft’s multi-screen strategy.

However, Xbox 8 is only one of many speculated names for Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox, for there’s also the ‘Xbox Infinity’ which makes sense in a way when you turn the 8 on its side to form the infinity symbol.

Other rumoured next Xbox names include Xbox 720, Xbox Loop, and Project 10. It is code-named Durango.

Microsoft To Respond To Apple TV With XBox 360 Based Service

Microsoft is reportedly planning to take on Apple TV & Google TV with a new subscription service that will be delivered through the company’s popular gaming console, the XBox 360.

Two people familiar with the company’s plans told Reuters that Microsoft is in contact with content providers to become a “Virtual cable operator”. The service would obviously come with a monthly fee that would allow XBox 360 users to stream TV on their console.

These plans are said to be at least 12 months away. It looks like Microsoft is desperate to find ways in which the company can stay in competition with Apple & Google. It seems as everything as come down to a competition.
