FIFA12 demo set to release on Tuesday

FIFA 12 (EA Sports)


If all the trailers and screenshots have you itching to get your hands on FIFA12, Tuesday will provide some temporary relief.

The FIFA12 demo is set to release on both the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 consoles on Tuesday, giving gamers a glimpse of the latest installment of the top selling soccer video game on the market two weeks before it is released.

The demo, which has been highly anticipated by gamers around the world, was expected to drop in North America at 5 a.m. on the Xbox360 and is slated for a 5 p.m. drop on the Playstation 3.

As it does every year, EA Sports has added a number of features to its game. Among those included this year are Tactical Defending, Precision Dribbling and Player Impact Engine.

FIFA12 is scheduled to hit the stores on Sept. 27 in North America. It will come out three days later in Europe.

The demo for Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, FIFA12's main competitor, drops for both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Why is this a story on SoccerbyIves?

  3. Andrew says:

    FIFA is a soccer video game. SoccerByIves is a soccer website. They have soccer in common.

  4. Rory says:

    I’m so glad they made it for PS2 this year! By far the most in-depth version with more leagues and players than any other edition. What with the Russian teams recent spending there was a lot of good players that aren’t in the game for the other consoles.

  5. Rory says:

    Probably the same person that asks about Jersey Shore and Five Guys Versus In-and-Out Burgers during the live chats.

    And I swear to you…my FIFA 10 disc gave out on me (“disc no longer readable”) just three days ago. Talk about sweet timing…or a massive conspiracy by FIFA to force you to buy their new game. (shakes fist to sky) Damn you Blatter…DAAAAAMN YOUUUUU! you win again.

  9. KNPonder says:

    Fix the freakin Career Mode this time around!!!

  10. Conrad says:

    amen, bro! it was terrible last year…i played PES2010’s career mode instead, and used FIFA11 for friendlies and single competitions.

  11. Tim M. says:

    I heard all MLS teams aren’t available on this version?


    They need to do whatever they need to, to get the rights to the J-league and the Japanese national team.

    Konami has exclusive rights for how long?

    Wayne Rooney has “grown” hair since that picture was drawn…..

  13. ImaGoalMan says:

    I could scare my kids with that ScreamingRooney.

  14. OmarVizquel says:

    You could scare your kids with a Smiling Rooney.

  15. rory says:

    tell me about PES’s career mode

  16. Steve C says:

    The Russian league was in FIFA11 for the 360. The days when your outdated PS2 had all the bells and whistles is LONG over.

  17. CrispyST3 says:

    LOL……..okaaaaaayyyyy, u made me chuckle….i’ll admit it haha

  18. abc says:

    not sure if serious….

  19. abc says:

    Is Marquez the most perplexing North American FIFA cover boy ever based on his current level of playing ability, or would that go to either Altidore or Kljestan from previous years?

  20. c(note) says:

    Whats happening with the SBI FIFA league for PS3, is that still in the works?

  21. mistadoblina says:

    +1 not sure why I wasted so much time on FIFA11 career mode…

  22. hogatroge says:

    After some quick Googling, it appears the guy that said all MLS teams won’t be included was incorrect.

    All MLS teams will be playable since FIFA has the league rights.

  23. T says:

    Actually the guy did a second interview and said all teams except Montreal. The game is made by EA Vancouver.I guess the guy had Monteal in his head at that time

    don’t forget asking, “Is the Wire the best show of all time?”


    …when we already know what his response is.

    Der_Champ17 is my gamer tag. I am the self proclaimed best fifa player in the world, so anyone who would like a shot at the champ, come at me!!!

    I can give you Charlie Davies gamer tag if you want
