In an exclusive interview with ReviewFix.com on Friday, “FIFA 14” Lead Producer Aaron McHardy defended the “Legacy” editions of “FIFA 14” on the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita as games with “great value.”
As previously reported on Examiner, the “Legacy” editions of the game feature no new gameplay improvements and are simply games that contain new uniforms and roster updates, yet remain at the same price as a new game on the respective systems.
“’FIFA 14 Legacy Editions’ provide great gameplay, game modes, and features you’ve come to expect with unmatched authenticity that reflects the current football season, all at a great value,” McHardy told Review Fix. “While there are no new innovations to these games, if playing with authentic players and teams are important to you, than you will want to play the new game.”
While EA was mum on why the handheld versions of the game had no new gameplay additions, sales could be an issue. “FIFA 13” on the Vita and 3DS sold just 450,000combined copies, according to video game sales tracker VGChartz.com. Overall, “FIFA 13” sold 13.37 million copies on nine different platforms.
“FIFA 14” is currently available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.The “Legacy Edition” of the game is also available on the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. It is scheduled for a Nov. 12 release on the PlayStation 4 and a Nov. 19 release on the Xbox One.
