FIFA 14 fans on PC are going to be very happy at the moment. Just like last year, EA has decided to release the FIFA 14 demo first on PC, with the release time for the PS3 and Xbox 360 demos still pending. Unfortunately, we can also confirm another trend from last year – PS3 users will receive the FIFA 14 demo last.
EA has now sent out a series of Tweets, confirming some vital information for console owners who are frantically refreshing the respective Xbox Live and PSN marketplaces in the hope of the demo magically appearing.
If you are an Xbox 360 owner in the UK, you’ll want to head to the Marketplace within the next few hours. This is because EA has just confirmed that the FIFA 14 demo will go live from 10am UK time onwards, appearing on the store before 2pm UK time.
PS3 users have again been handed the short straw though. We told you last year that there would be an extended wait for the FIFA 13 demo, and EA are again playing the same game with the FIFA 14 demo. A Tweet now confirms that PS3 users will see the demo appear during the early hours of Wednesday, between 1am and 3am.

It is obviously very frustrating for those who wanted to play the game during Tuesday like everyone else, but you’ll have to hold on just a little longer. On the demo itself, you’ll have the option of picking either Man City, Barcelona, New York Red Bulls, Spurs, PSG, Milan, Dortmund or Boca Juniors.
PS3 fans, what do you think of the release time delay for the FIFA 14 demo? Same as last year – are you disappointed?
