The motivation to purchase FIFA 13 is different for each gamer, although it is a no-brainer for us considering we’ve played FIFA 12 at least 4 hours a week since its release date. This is the same for other FIFA fans and people that use this game as a social event for weekly meet-ups with friends and family, so having a major update in the form of FIFA 13 is a must for thousands of gamers.
It would be nice to see more DLC launched for the existing game, which could add new commentary to stop us going crazy at the repeated phrases, but this hasn’t been the case for FIFA 12 and is not likely to change in the year following with FIFA 13. Each year fans look forward to the upgrade for many more reasons than just new commentary, but some people need a little motivation to update each year.
The developers and publisher are doing their best to tease potential buyers with showcases of immense graphics, visual treats thanks to gameplay previews, and also pre-order incentives to get gamers lined-up for the next incarnation. Towards the end of last month we saw EA promote an extensive list of pre-order deals that hope to secure orders, and considering FIFA 13’s release date is just over 2 months away (Sept 28) it couldn’t come at a better time.
Some of the promotions we’ve seen include 10,000 credits for the EA Sports Football club, which you can use for purchasing in-game goodies, and if you buy from the UK store GAME you’ll get an exclusive team that features 23 of the best football players in the world. You can find out more about these deals on the official websites, but we’d love our readers to drop a comment below if they have seen anything worthwhile when placing a pre-order.
What’s your motivation to buy FIFA 13? For us it is the much-needed upgrade after some things (commentary) are becoming tedious, and the promise of more game advancements should be fun. We also included a 12-minute video below that features an interview with EA, and this explains a lot of the improvements coming in FIFA 13. Do you need a reason to be motivated to buy the next FIFA game?
