FIFA 12 ‘News’
FIFA 12 is as obvious as the sun coming up. After the undeniable success of the previous two instalements, EA Sports have provided a drip feed for news about this years game. On April 12th, they released two, highly rendered by pretty irrelenant images of Kaka to officially launh FIFA 12. Furthermore, and still to be 100% confirmed by EA Sports, Andy Gray looks to have been relieved of his commentating duties following his sacking by Sky Sports.
Personally, the former is nothing new, and expect to see a similar tact from Konami regarding PES 2012 (highly rendered out of context ’screens’) in the coming weeks. However, the latter is a bold statement, by EA Sports to maintain the integrity of the brand, and something that should be respected by fans. Andy Gray has probably been the best colour commentator in football for the past 20 years, and the audio provided on FIFA has been one of the consistently strong points throughout the games mediocre phases over the years. Replacing Andy won’t be easy, but keeping him would have been a strong step in the wrong direction, and credit where credit is due to EA Sports.
