No FIFA 15 Legends for PlayStation

1 min read

LegendsThe new gen versions of FIFA 14 are genuinely a generation ahead of their counterparts on the old consoles. The Ignite engine that powers the football simulator makes it a far more fluid and realistic game. You can probably expect the same for FIFA 15. Only, one of the game’s additional features is going to exclusive to Microsoft’s consoles.

Earlier this week, placeholder box art for FIFA 15 leaked to the internet, letting the world know that the FIFA ultimate Team Legends mode, which allows players to use favoured football legends from eras past in their ultimate teams – would be exclusive to Xbox platforms. FIFA 14 featured the likes of Freddie Ljunberg, Ruud Gullit, and Dennis Bergkamp; names which all mean absolutely nothing to me.

EA’s confirmed as much.

“We’re not talking about FUT 15 just yet but yes, Legends will continue to be only on Xbox platforms,” an EA Sports spokesperson told Eurogamer.

The only issue with these legendary players is that they’re randomly generated when people drop money on Ultimate Team Gold Packs, and were so rare that I’m not sure anybody’s even seen one. If they’ll be working the same way in FIFA 15, this is hardly a selling point worth mentioning.

What do you think? Does the exclusion of Legends from the ultimate team mode on PlayStation platforms matter to you, or is this wholly inconsequential stuff?

    “… Legends will continue to be only on Xbox platforms” implies that it’s always been an Xbox exclusive.

    It’s meaningless. It’s something for a marketing team to make a big fuss over while having hardly any real impact.

    Think FIFA 11 or 12 was my last FIFA and that was crap, will not be bothered with the new one and I also don’t do online gaming so this will have as much impact on me as Spain in the current World Cup.

      I haven’t bought a FIFA game since 2009. I don’t intend to get another one for another 4 years.

        I bought FIFA 14 after 10 years playing PES as no game was released for new gen yet…. WoW did it shock me… Totally unplayable… It just re-affirmed that I was right switching all them years ago….no matter how good EA dress up their game with licences etc etc it plays bad even after 20 years experience of producing the game.

      saw that. Very nearly clicked buy on the wing commander collection for under $10 too – but then my wallet climbed up my head and smacked me back to my senses with a cry of “TEN DOLLA TOO BUKU!”

      Was damn tempting though …

          I have decided to create a Shock Wallet (Patent Pending). It connects to the net and checks for any gaming sales.When one is on it electrifies itself so I can not touch it.

            Hm… You’d probably need to link it up to some kind of universal wish list system.
            Steam and GOG seem to always have something on special.

            Even better then. If I can’t use my wallet 90% of the time I may actually be able to afford that sweet sweet R9295X.

    Geoff – quick question … what does the phrase “one of the game’s most additional features” mean? Is it more additional than other features?

        A “bed edit” … as in an edit you make while in bed.

        Mind you – on this cold windy morning that’s a good idea …

    I could only care less if Peter Molyneux was the one promising me that I would get a player that wasn’t an egotistical wanker.

    I think EA and MS are trying to get (EU) to buy the game on Xbox. People who knew the “likes of Freddie Ljunberg, Ruud Gullit, and Dennis Bergkamp” are old enough not to be bothered by this exclusivity.

    What does this mean for P.C though. I always get confused when they talk about new gen versions of a game, does that mean the P.C version gets an update too or are we stuck with crappy ports. I feel that the P.C is just an elephant in the room nowadays.

    Big mistake as we all like legends but I will not pay for gold packs in the first place. You need your head examined if you are going to pay extra for what should have come with the game already. Micro transactions have ruined gaming for me that is why I am selling my PS4 and never going back to consoles…
