Users on NeoGAF have discovered earlier that the Xbox One demos for FIFA 14 and EA Sports UFC now cost $4.99 although they were initially free. The point of a demo is to let you try out a game before deciding to purchase it. Unsurprisingly, many people were outraged that now they have to pay just to try out these games. NeoGAF users started throwing accusations at EA for this, but the company told Polygon that they had nothing to do with it and this was most likely a pricing error. Furthermore, the PS4 store lists FIFA 14 and EA Sports UFC demos as being free, which means that it must indeed be just an error. Microsoft didn’t comment anything about this at the time of this writing.
FIFA 14 is a football simulator developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released on September 24th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC as well as mobile mobile devices and handheld consoles. “Fuelled by EA SPORTS IGNITE, FIFA 14 will feel alive with players who move and behave like world-class footballers. Players have four times the decision making ability and feel alive with human-like reactions, anticipation, and instincts. FIFA 14 delivers the dynamic movements and biomechanics of the world’s best footballers. Players are agile and athletic as they plant, pivot, cut and explode out of each step. The increased fidelity has a game-changing effect on gameplay.”
