It's that time of year again. Singing in the stands, jumpers for goalposts, and the impending release of yet another version of EA's annual football juggernaut (and single biggest-selling title), FIFA.
To give you a taste of the changes included in this year's update - most important of which is full 360-degree dribbling - EA Sports will be releasing in Europe a demo of the game on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network and PC later this week (September 10).
North Americans, you have to wait a week, as your demo will be here on September 17.
You'll have six teams to choose from, those being Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Marseille and...Chicago Fire. What, no Villa? No Sydney FC? Disappointing, EA, disappointing.
