Nice! The thing there that jumped out at me was updated starting lineups. I can't wait.

So, when he said "visit EA Store", and was talking about individual leagues or packages, that means we have to BUY this feature that's already on the disc, right? $5? $10? Nice, EA. In terms of product quality, EA really is turning things around in recent times, but this microtransaction stuff is really a black eye for them.

I dunno...league results are organic. Once you win a game for your club that was lost IRL, everything changes! It no longer will reflect real results, and ends-up just being "manager mode" via DLC. I'm skeptical on this, and will probably just stick to the online 'club fixtures' that change every week. That mode was great the last 2 years, so why change now?

Its Martin Tyler - Mr Sky Sports commentary, very OTT and prone to girlish screams especially if some of his 'favourite' teams score.

Now if the FIFA game and gameplay regresses and is lacking because the developers devoted all their time to this new feature, that would be different. Then people would have a valid complaint and concern.
Isn't getting "new features that haven't been a part of the game before" the entire purpose of paying $60 for a sequel? It's not like I have an opportunity to try it out before paying for it, either.

This microtransaction stuff doesn't need to be going on in full-priced games. It's one thing to buy a $20 game and have the choice to add epsiodic content to it or new game modes piece-by-piece. But when you advertise new features in a game, pay $60 to get the game and then find out you need to pay additional money to unlock said new features, they'd just as well raise the retail price to $70, or sell roster/patch pack for $20.
