  1. ea always do the same they get exclusive license to avoid competition with other franchisees and the users always loos with that's low-quality games what shame of company
    EA is really wrecking sports gaming. I really dont like this at all. Even if I preferred fifa over Pes I would hate this. It leaves no room for competition and ultimately the consumer suffers.
    Guys the only way these exclusives will ever stop is if you stop buying their games. Especially their Fifa and Nhl series. We all know eFootball is the better soccer game and superior in many ways.
    Like someone mentioned in this thread, EA is wrecking sports gaming for all of us with these exclusives. They are monopolizing the sports gaming world. They are running their company like a communist regime would run their country. Electronic Arts puts profits over players. They don't want us to have choices. It's as simple as that.
    Boycott them and don't buy any of their games. I for one will not be buying another Fifa soccer game when it launches. I will just wait until it shows up on the EA access vault for free or find it for dirt cheap online somewhere. And don't get me started on the microtransactions..
    Camp Nou won't be coming back to FIFA, at least not for 21. Barca is a PES partner. So much so that PES stopped Sergi Roberto from competing in an eSports torney
    It is what it is.

    That really is the solution yet many still won't do it. I also find it weird nobody puts pressure on the sports leagues that continue to work with EA. As much as we don't like it this is not a monopoly, EA willing pays the price set by the rights holder to get an exclusive license, nobody is being held to ransom here.

    I play Madden, so i get where you're coming from... but PES does the exact same thing so this isn't the same as what EA does with Madden. That's why we have stupid Piemonte Calcio in Fifa 20. I don't blame them at all for doing this and they do a great job of integrating it into the game with presentation elements, kits, stadiums, etc.
    oh god, everything in this world is becoming monopoly. Really sad thing that fifa and pes are popular games and its just about money, if they were about culture they wouldn`t compete, they would create better one together.

    i wish both games would stop but PES isnt even close to the same level. EA would do this regardless if PES did it or not. They have the Premier League and now La Liga, arguably the two most popular leagues in the world. PES wouldnt survive without cherry picking a few teams here and there.
    I use to play madden but dont anymore. I love football and EA has wrecked football games, I pine for NFL 2k. I really hope they dont do the same to PES.

    Lack of licenses shouldn't be an excuse to make a crap game. Option Files make the lack of licenses a moot point, PES has bigger problems.

    What do you mean? If we compare Fifa and Pes as football simulators, Pes has no problems.

    PES actually makes an amazing game. Of course the gameplay isn’t perfect but I highly prefer it to fifa. I love PES.
    My problem is they don’t get to recreate authentic premier league presentation. Yes option files are great for uniforms but not for stadiums, crowd chants, presentation etc. Recreating an authentic premier league or la liga experience is important to hardcore gaming fans and especially to the casual market. If you are an everyday person looking to play as your favorite premier league team, are you going to jump through all the hoops to install an option file or are you going to buy the game that has your team’s uniform, stadium, chants etc already in the game. Saying it’s moot because of the option file isn’t really a good argument
