With gamescom 2014 kicking off, rumours are already in play of a deal that EA Sports and Microsoft have cooked up to get FIFA 14 into an Xbox One bundle, at no extra cost to the consumer.
Yes, apparently cocking a snook at Sony's PS4, EA will sell Microsoft a couple of hundred thousand copies of FIFA 14
for the latter to then give away with launch Xbox Ones. MCV
reports the rumour that several senior game industry voices support thus:
"At Gamescom tomorrow, an Xbox One/FIFA 14 tie-up will be announced in a bid to win over European gamers, according to two senior games industry sources. The bundle will still retail for £429.99, the same price as the Xbox One base unit.
"The move is designed to make Xbox One appear better value for money as it currently retails for £80 more than PS4. FIFA 14 has an RRP of £54.99."
We'll find out today at gamescom.
