FIFA 15 will not be the same across consoles

Written by David Stellmack

Only X1 & PS4 will have all of the features

FIFA fans will be excited to learn that the 15th installment or FIFA 15 is coming not only to the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, but the Wii, 3DS, and PS Vita this time around. (We have confirmed that there is no Wii U specific version planned.) The only thing is that only the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version will include all of the game’s features that will be offered in the 15th installment of the game.

EA broke the news about not all platforms being equal with a simple disclaimer saying, “Not all game features are available on all gaming platforms”. According to sources, the Wii, PS Vita, and Nintendo DS versions are actually “Legacy” versions of the game that have just been dated with player rosters and teams. Besides perhaps a bit of tweaking, they are basically the same game as previously released on these platforms.

What is not clear is what exactly the plan is for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version of the game. It would be difficult with such a large installed user base to release a “Legacy” version or a version of FIFA 15 that does not offer the major release advantages of FIFA 15. It is thought that the transition to the new Ignite engine that is being using on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, presents a problem because that engine does not exist for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which makes adding some of the unique features that take advantage of the Ignite engine either difficult at best or impossible at worst.

We will have to see what the future holds, but our sources say that the 360 and PS3 version will end up dubbed down from the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version, but it is likely that these versions will end up getting at least of the not Ignite specific features, but there clearly is still going to be a big difference between the 360/PS3 version and the Xbox One/PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
