EA releases a new FIFA game every year. And the exclusive partner of the video game publisher is Amazon for India. But now it seems to be making a habit of delaying the entries of the popular franchise. On September 30, Fifa 17 will be out in India. That is what the Amazon’s website says! At least it is known to all the customers whoare tripped off inGadgets 360. The close sources ofthe e-commerce giant state that everything is not well between EA and Amazon. Though EA traditionally has been one of the strongest and active publishers in the region, yet some of its moves are poorly taken. Such as the pricing onBattlefield 1 along with a knee-jerk price drop inCall of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
But game-savvy peoplemay think that even after announcing the preorders earlier, Amazon India would be competitive to ensure a date and a day to release. But somehow this is not the case. The disappointment of the consumers bodes well for the smaller stores. Aproprietor of an independent store of video games tells that they have been continuously receiving phones since morning. The reason is an obvious one! They were able to procure the stock of Fifa 17. Well, the reason why certain storeshad Fifa 17 earlier is just that of the street date break which occurreda week before. And this why copies of this games have been flooding parallellyimported as well as smuggled. And of course, the price differed! Depending on the stores from where it has been bought, it had costRs. 3,800 to Rs. 4,300.
But surprisingly, we have found a step down in Fifa 17 from the year’s version. While it is fun and exciting playing Fifa 17, it is nowhere close to the worth of the previous versions. The journey mode falls flat as there are certain fundamental changes to the “moment to moment” game-play. To give a conclusion, Fifa 17 is not theultimate effort from EA’s side. However, to excite the readers more, there lies a better game this year which isnot from EA and is beyond expectations! Stay tuned to get more information about it!
