Foul! EA Admits to FIFA 14 Next Gen Console Bugs
In what can be seen as a rather large bug - one that bugs out the controller on FIFA 14 when played on an Xbox One, among a set other game-hurting bugs on Next Gen consoles.

The fact is that there are a host of problems. Whether these can be put down to the complexities of developing games for Next Gen or these can be put down to the complexities of developing for Next Gen consoles without enough time because the consoles were rushed to market we won't know for about 20 years. Let's check out what we're in for though.

The official word is:

"The first of which are issues we will address in a Day 1 Update...

Controller Bug: Using two separate controllers, both assigned to user profiles, and then using controller two to navigate the bootflow when FIFA 14 is loading can result in a crash. The FIFA dev team will be fixing this issue as soon as possible (shortly after launch) but, in the meantime and as a workaround: please only use controller one to navigate the bootflow of FIFA 14. You can turn on and use the controller two once in the main menu.

Bootflow Issue: If you suspend the console (leave it inactive until it ?sleeps?) on the title screen in the Xbox One bootflow, you will not be able to access any online features when returning from an unsuspended state. As a workaround: don?t suspend the console when on the title screen. If you do, simply restart the console (XB1 Only).

In addition to the above, there are a number of known issues that we are working on solutions for. They include the following items we plan to address in a upcoming title update:

FIFA fans cannot join Friends Only matches via a friend?s profile (PS4 Only). You should: Accept the invite from the user when it comes through and you will be able to join the match properly.

Title crash in Co-Op seasons if the captain is using a custom formation and the non-captain does not have any custom formations (XB1 Only). You should: Make sure you have the same amount of custom formations as your teammate, or not use them.

The ?Seasons Win? item in the EA SPORTS FC catalogue will not be properly received if gifted to a friend. (BOTH PS4/XB1) You should: Hold off on gifting this item until the upcoming title update.
Compatibility improvements with Xbox voice commands (XB1 Only).

When playing as a GK in Pro Clubs, you will have no way of changing the camera off of the ?End To End? camera (XB1 Only). "
