Can't wait for FIFA 12? Well you can pick up it's predecessor for under twelve quid if you head over to Bee. com sharpish. FIFA 11 is solid, but all too often descends into a midfield scrap fest, no matter who you're playing as. That said, it boasts a hell of a lot of content, feels more sturdy than ever before and the AI is a lot more aggressive. This is a damn fine price for one of the best football games ever (though I personally still prefer FIFA 10). If it was me, though, I'd hold out for just a few more weeks.
For those of you out there who are football mad and own one of Nintendo's little white consoles, why not pick up a copy of Fifa 11 from The Hut for £12.85, you'll be saving yourself over £2 on the next best offer coming in from The Game Collection. If you do grab a copy you'll be able to sail onto the pitch as your favourite team, and although it might not look quite as good as it does on the Xbox 360 or the PS3, it's still good fun trying to get to the top of the league.
It’s all change with the price on this one, with HMV now offering the cheapest price for PS3 owners, but is there any reason for you to part from your money for the latest outing in the long-running football series? Well there are a few good reasons to answer “yes” this time with new features such as Personality+ which attempts to makes each player unique on the pitch, refined passing and jostling systems to get you into the action and, for the first time in FIFA games, the chance to play as a goalkeeper both online and in the career mode. That said, yearly purchases for mainly the same content can be a drag, so at under £20 this might be the excuse you were looking for. Thanks to joeeeallover @ Hot UK Deals!
I can't comment on the quality of Fifa 11 on Wii, where I'm probably safe in assuming there's something of a graphical downgrade and a complete controller haul compared to its next-gen consoles. However, we're seeing a lot developers harness the Wiimote for more than mere gimmickry, with rival PES in particular boasting an original way to utilize it. And at £7.99, you can't really go wrong with a fully-featured big-budget title.
Fifa 11 dominated the charts this Christmas, despite stiff competition from the likes of AC Brotherhood and Black Ops. Like all chart toppers, it's hovered at a pretty lofty price point. Until now. Play have slashed the cost for Fifa 11 to just £17.99 on the 360 and PS3, which is a cracking price on both platforms. It helps that it's a fantastic game, too, combining pitch-perfect controls and mechanics with lifelike animation and stunning visuals. Matt's review should suffice, but if you need more convincing, let it be known I willingly overlooked an Arsenal game on ITV to finish a thrilling Champions League final on Fifa. Wow. It feels amazing to finally admit that.
Another year, another FIFA game. Is there any reason for you to part your money for the latest outing in the series? Well there are a few good reasons to answer “yes” with new features such as Personality+ which attempts to makes each player unique on the pitch, refined passing and jostling systems to get you into the action and, for the first time in FIFA games, the chance to play as a goalkeeper both online and in the career mode. That said, yearly purchases for mainly the same content can be a drag, so at £20 this might be the excuse, or the last minute Christmas gift, you were looking for.

I'm sure I don't need to explain what the FIFA series is all about. Despite miserably falling from grace a few years ago, EA's definitive footy sim is back on top and providing football action that's as accessible or deep as you want it to be. Polished gameplay, new goalkeeping mechanics and a raft of tweaks have ensured that FIFA 11 is truly in the Premier League. All idiotic footy metaphors aside, it's an excellent game that deserves your attention at this price.
With sales naturally declining, Game have finally relinquished their grip on Fifa 11's price, cutting it down to £24.99. That's a cracking price, especially if you'd overlooked it on release or plumped for PES 11 instead. I recently sold my copy of Fifa 11, largely due to how crap Arsenal are playing at the moment. Don't try to understand why reasoning. It often makes little to no sense. It was a bad choice which I now regret, as Fifa 11 is a fantastic game, without doubt the best footy game thus far. The passing system is smooth and sublime, the speed and weight of each player realistic and appropriate, and each shot never resembles the last, adding a tactile sense of realism to proceedings. Grab this deal while you can!
Another cracking deal from Zavvi's eBay outlet here, bundling a copy of Fifa 11 with the brand new Xbox 360 4GB console, all for just £134.99. I paid almost £300 for my 360, way back when, so it's painful for me to see it so cheap, but for you folks, it's probably an oasis in a desert of high-prices. Don't let the eBay tag frighten you, it's just Zavvi advertising elsewhere. It's reliable. Like the new 360, whose years spent on the virtual treadmill have resulted in a slimmer design, and is thus less likely to suffer a sudden seizure and die. Fifa 11, while, is great. It's so good, in fact, me and my mates forfeited the Arsenal match the other day to replicate the game on Fifa instead. Heresy, you say? Well, blame EA.
Another eBay deal of the week here, and again it's from the Zavvi outlet, offering a limited number of Xbox 360 4GBs, bundled with Fifa 11, for just £134.99. It's a great price, as Fifa 11's strong grasp on the charts will mean its price will remain pretty high for a while, as EA look to scoop in as much profit as possible. The 4GB 360 is Microsoft's mass-market model, but the removal of a hard-drive in favour of flash memory does mean its incapable of running games like Halo Reach, or installing large amounts of data like films or games. But if you're just looking to purchase a 360 and a game for a relative or something familial like that, then this is a pretty good deal. The new 360's work well with Kinect, too, as the sensor doesn't require an extra power cable, instead plugging straight into the sleek, lacquered console's on-board port.
