Reactions to FIFA 12 demo, teams and expected release time

By Updated on

The day has come to get your hands on the FIFA 12 demo, although the release time has not been confirmed by EA. The game demo will give fans a taste of what’s to come and is expected to go live on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live today.

Yesterday we heard about an early FIFA 12 review that was full of praise, we also posted our hopes for the commentators following the repetitiveness of the last game, and the new trailer showed some pretty cool skill moves.

With each bit of news that has trickled through over the last few days and weeks, we have got more excited about FIFA 12 and our expectations have raised higher, which could be a bad thing. Today we as well as our readers will find out if those expectations have been met. We want to hear your reactions to the FIFA 12 demo, any problems you may find (let us know the system you’re using), and what you think of the teams that are playable in the trial version. These are reported to be AC Milan, Dortmund, Marseille, Man City, Arsenal, and Barcelona.

We look forward to trying out the new features of FIFA 12 including a new collision impact engine, which we hope gives us more realistic tackles. At the time of writing we can confirm the PS3 version is not live on the PS Store yet, although we’ll keep you updated throughout the day. If you see the download go live, please share a comment. You can expect the full game to launch later this month, September 29-30.

Update: It’s expected that the FIFA 12 demo release time will be when the DLC’s are pushed to Xbox Live. We’re checking the PlayStation Store, expected UK time 5pm, and will update you when it goes live, also check out this page on Twitter for quicker updates.

Update 2: We’re hearing that the download has gone live on Xbox Live, and that PS3 owners in Europe will have to wait until tomorrow.

  • Bobzigot

    can anybody sign in to xbox live?

  • waiting for fifa 12

    its gonna be 14th Sep in europe atleast for ps3 user.. atleast that’s what ive read. correct me if im wrong

  • BARRY

    If you want it on PS3 today it is being released in North America at 10am, so it will be around 16.00/17.00 UK time which means that you will have to have an American online account. It officially comes out in Europe tomorrow at around 16.00/17.00 as well. This is nothing to do with EA, this is when the Playstation Store gets updated for certain regions.

  • Callum Nefc

    Anyone know any valad new york street names making a us account

    • Themartiner

      if u type it in on youtube there are loads just copy sum1 else address….but i just made one there and  it still ant available

  • Seanster

    It’ll be worth the wait, just played a couple of games on the xbox and its a very big improvement, graphics, passing and solidity of the players are also improved along with the player impact engine. Wasn’t expecting such a marked difference.

    • leeds united 198

      i agree! total revamp and it looks alot better

  • Karlbrown26

    sick of waiting ive got us account no sign at all doesnt look good for us ps3 users

  • Bluviper

    2pm PST = 10pm GMT not 7pm

  • Wasspsonnnnn?

    They know where your ps3 is logged from by your IP lol. Why are people bothering from the UK to make a PSN account with a US address.

    • Marko1

      because it doesn’t matter about the IP, making a US account gives UK users access to the US store meaning they can download it at the US release time. Do you really think nobody would have figured it out if the IP adress mattered?

      • Wasspsonnnnn?

        CSB. That’s actually completely false. The content displayed for a UK user is still different. I interned with Sony, GOMD.

        • Marko1

          You interned with Sony and they explained to you the differences between playstation store content shown in the UK and Us, explaining specificaly that it is affected by IP? How convenient. Strangely enough I created a US account today and the content was different from the UK store.

    Downloaded the demo yesterday on xbox live. Extremely disappointed . Didn’t feel like I was playing FIFA , felt more like last years version of Pro. Defending is terrible.

    • Mata

  • rarr

    sony are trying to get back on ps3 users as the assassins creed revelations beta came a little earlier than xbox users so they use the fifa 12 demo to get there own back

  • Alistairiswicked

    Okay, I’ve waited long enough… Where on earth is it?!?!?

  • OverRated Barcelona

    Barcelona is Over Rated… they are the best team in the world but come on..
    David Villa 91…..WTF !!
    Messi 95…hmm al right then
    Xavi and Iniesta both 92 ….WTF  !!

    Cristiano Ronaldo also 92…. WTF !!

    Dont tell me that Cristiano Ronaldo has the same overall score as xavi and iniesta…

    Cristiano Ronaldo should also be around 95….

  • Gav135
