I’m not entirely certain I know a single person who enjoys playing soccer. Keep in mind I know at least eight real people, and I have somewhere in the neighborhood of fifteen internet friends. Are you playing FIFA Soccer 13? Clearly I don’t know what I’m missing.

EA SPORTS™ FIFA Soccer 13 is available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and on November 18th the Wii U. The FIFA Soccer 13 demo is available through Origin, Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network.

      Soccer hooligans sold separately. I don't get the allure for FIFA. Same gameplay as NHL without the 3 minute run from one end of the field to the other.
