2010 FIFA World Cup Demo Coming Tomorrow

View author's profile

EA has announced that a demo for 2010 FIFA World Cup will be coming to Xbox Live tomorrow.

Spain and Italy will be the two teams available to play as, with the added ability to upload replays from the demo to EA Football World where anyone can admire or deride your handiwork.

Newcomers might also do well to sample what the developer has dubbed the 'Dad Pad' - a two-button control system that only requires the player to move, pass and shoot.

If you're thirsty for more on 2010 FIFA World Cup, you really should take a look at our extensive hands-on preview and interview with the game's producer.

The finished game is out at the end of this month. Goooooaaaallllll!!!!!!!

Why not? It's been a while since I played a footie demo. The last footie game I bought was Fifa 2003 on the GC.

#4... its football, the sport where you actually use a foot instead of run around chasing burly men who hold the ball but call it football instead when its actually a version of rugby where men get to prove how hard they can take it.

@4 I don't care about soccer games and I like Halo a lot but that comment made no sence.. If no-one would like it then they wouldn't make it. Not everyone likes the same games. And some people like both. It's like saying soccer sucks go play GoW or CoD. Same thing all are useless comments. And a demo is always good when it's free. You got nothing to loose.

Why? Why bother commenting on this? Football games (football, not handegg) sell like crazy. America isn't the only country in the world, you know?

@17 chill out man.
it's a shame that America isn't into soccer cuz it's a great sport and obviously the most popular worldwide. and the reason USA usually can't compete with the best soccer teams is because our best athletes are playing baseball, football, and basketball

If this is decent then i may get it.. or just wait till fifa 11, anyone know roughly when fifa games come out, october isnt it?

Football aka Soccer is the most popular sport worldwide. The us version of Football is different form of rugby but football(US) is only popular in the US so keep your narrow minded opinions out of the comments, if you have nothing to add then dont comment or if you dont care about "soccer" then dont comment.On topic i will check out the demo to see if im interested....

/facepalm It's called soccer in America if you don't like it then shove off. No one cares, you probably suck at FOOTBALL(there i said it are you happy? going to stop whining now?). And to the person who said Americans were fat, who's to say you're not fat but you're calling us fat to make yourself feel better? -sigh- stupid people on this site i swear...

ON TOPIC, I will try this but the last Fifa game i played was on n64...haha...

Lets face it, Football is not for America just like there sports dont make it anywere else around the world.

i don't even like footbal as a sport but i do buy the games because they are enjoyable to play i will try the demo tomorrow and the "dad Pad" will be okay for the Girl friend to try out as she hates games

The only reason that football isn't popular in America is that it is still relatively young over there. Remember, in Britain football was around for 40 or so years before it became really popular, before then it was all Rugby.

@4/26.. It's people like you that give Americans a bad name.... So anybody who likes football and is British is automatically a faggot? good logic there pal... That's like saying the USF1 (Formula 1, ya know, proper motorsport) team failed to make it this year because they couldn't design a car that turns right..
As for "currently have a gorgeous girlfriend"... i would assume the "currently" means she doesn't know you well enough yet?
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but at least, when making it, make a sensible comment...

You make me laugh, it is considered the real football why? It is played throughout the world, your football is mainly US based not worldwide, (and refer to what #10 said as well) and i'm pretty sure US is the only english speaking country which spells MUM as MOM.
