FIFA 15 One of the most beautiful sights in Football - nay, in life - has to be the march of the players, when every competitor on the field congregates in the centre of the pitch to run around in circles or jog on the spot. Sadly, this wonderful experience has been absent from the FIFA experience until this year, when it appeared in FIFA 15 on the PC.

Sony Wants To Show the Value of Paying for Online

Sony-Japan_690x508 Microsoft was way ahead of the game when it came to charging people to play games online.

Different Levels of Caring: Xbox and Sony vs Nintendo

Nintendo-Wii-U-vs-PS4-vs-XB1 The current generation is made up of three consoles, with each console doing its best to steal sales and finish number one month after month. Different levels of 'trying' are required. Sony and the PS4 are getting sales regardless of what they do; many of Sony's new following have been swayed by statements (not always necessarily true) made about its number one competitor, Microsoft's Xbox One. Microsoft has more work to do than Sony, although almost completely abandoning Kinect has done ...

 

Japan Sales Show Nintendo Has a Mega Hit in Super Smash on 3DS

Super-Smash-Bros-3DS Super Smash Bros is a huge franchise, and one that Nintendo has returned to generation after generation. It can be perceived as a guaranteed money maker. However, I was skeptical when the 3DS version was announced, and even more skeptical as gameplay footage began to be released. After all, this was a first for this franchise on handheld.
