Future EA Sport titles to have story modes?

CELEBRATION Time (with FIFA) Come On

Ever since the FIFA games introduced manual celebrations into the game it’s been a big hit with fans (mostly, because I find them annoying as hell).

Here is the PES 2015 teaser trailer

Over the last few years PES lost a bit of ground to the muscle that’s EA’s FIFA, but they’re at it again and launching another football game. Last year Konami skipped the current generation by releasing the game on last generation formats – PS3 and Xbox 360. Hopefully the jump to current generation will be good enough to capture the hearts of football fans around the world ...

Madden NFL 15 Sacks the Quarterback With This Trailer

It’s a crying shame that more people don’t play the Madden games in this country. It’s probably a mixture of reasons, including not knowing how the sport works, and also because it’s not played here.
