[Update] Gamescom '13: Is FIFA 14 just another re-skinning of Vita launch title FIFA Football?

It might be, you know. (Updated: It is)

FIFA 14 PS Vita, thumbnail 1
Updated on August 22nd, at 12:00: EA has been in contact with us to say that FIFA 14 for the PS Vita will indeed be another re-skin of FIFA Football. So, there you go.

Original story follows...



There was consternation among FIFA fans last year when it was discovered that the Vita version of FIFA 13 was, in fact, little more than a re-skinned version of Vita launch title FIFA Football.

And it looks like there might be even more consternation this year. According to reports, you see, FIFA 14 for Vita is going to be a re-skinned version of FIFA 13. A re-skin of a re-skin. Re-sk-in-ception.

Speaking to Eurogamer at Gamescom in Cologne, David Rutter from EA Sports confirmed that FIFA 14 for Vita will feature "the same great gameplay and new kits". Which sounds like a re-skin.

Skin deep

When asked whether FIFA 14 will be sold for less than your average Vita title, if it is, as suggested, a slightly polished version of a two-year-old game, Rutter replied:

"I have nothing to do with the prices, but I'll be clear, it's the same great gameplay. And obviously with any new kits."

I don't think that's very clear at all, if I'm honest.

We've contacted EA for comment.

To be fair, FIFA 13 actually improved some performance issues over FIFA Football. And it was passable purely on the basis it was only 6 months later so there wasn't really time for any real changes. To re-release the same game 3 times in 18 months on the otherhand...

That said, I understand FIFA 13 on PSP was FIFA 07 reskinned for the 7th time.

It's not often that I agree with my esteemed friend, Mr Contest Chris - but today, on this particular matter, I couldn't agree more!

Well said sir, well said.

The ***** at EA want us to pay a full priced game for a reskin? Not once...but twice now? Are they out of their mind? No, they aren't. They are just EA, the company that has won two Golden Poo awards in a row and is slated to win it the third time running.
