Fifa 09-10 Megathread

Jan 29, 2009
FIFA, also known as FIFA Football or FIFA Soccer, is a series of football video games, released annually by Electronic Arts under the EA Sports label. While there was no major competition when EA released the first titles in their Madden NFL and NHL series, football video games such as Sensible Soccer, Kick Off and Matchday Soccer had been developed since the late eighties and were already competitive in the games market when EA announced a football game as the next addition to their EA Sports label.

When the series began in late 1993 it was notable for being the first to have an official licence from FIFA, the world governing body of football. The latest installments in the series contain many exclusively-licenced leagues and teams from around the world, including the English Premier League and Football League, Italian Serie A, Spanish Primera Liga, the Australian A-League and US Major League Soccer, allowing the use of real leagues, clubs, and player names and likenesses within the games.


The main series has been complemented by additional installments based on single major tournaments, such as the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championship, and UEFA Champions League, as well as a series of football management titles.



There’s little doubt that Americans are not as interested in soccer as the rest of the world. But that doesn’t stop them from buying and playing soccer videogames. In the U.S., the Major League Soccer has its own set of stars, and two of them will grace the cover of the North American release of FIFA Soccer 10.

Electronic Arts today announced that Cuauhtémoc Blanco of Chicago Fire and Sacha Kljestan of Chivas USA will be featured on the front packs of FIFA Soccer 10. The pair will join Chelsea’s world-class midfielder Frank Lampard, who will also appear on the cover of European releases.


Blanco, who has represented Mexico at two FIFA World Cups, is a midfielder for Chicago and two-time MLS All-Star. His ‘Blanco Bounce’ move, in which he jumps with the ball held between his feet to escape defenders, is a featured skill in FIFA Soccer 10.

Kljestan is an attacking midfielder who has appeared in 12 matches for the full U.S. National Team. In his third year in MLS, Kljestan led Chivas USA in scoring, named Team MVP, chosen as an MLS All-Star, and played for the United States Olympic Team.


FIFA Soccer 10 will feature the first-ever true 360-degree dribbling system to give players finer ball control. The new Freedom in Physical Play concept allows players to perform wider dribble touches and new the new collision sharing creates less predictable possessions.


The game is set to hit retailers in North America on October 20 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, PC, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, and Wii.
