Closing the show at EA's Gamescom press conference this morning was a brand new trailer for FIFA 16, highlighting yet more graphical improvements and game engine improvements. Coincidentally, you can also pre-order this year's edition for current-gen consoles for a record low price thanks to Rakuten's latest voucher code.
There's still a few months until this year's edition is released, which will contain the latest squad listings and all manner of graphical improvements, but the big new additions this time around are the FUT Draft mode, and the inclusion of international female players. Considering how popular the recent Women's World Cup has been, I suspect there will be many players wishing to virtually recreated some of the impressive displays from this year's tournament. Thanks to viperkeith @ HUKD!
Stay tuned to the site for our impression of EA Gamescom 2015 press conference.

PES has been snapping at FIFA's heels for years, and in our opinion, came out in front last year.
Vastly improved systems on the pitch make PES 2015 the undisputed king of footballing depth on the pitch. It still can't quite match up to FIFA in terms of that shiny televisual presentation, but PES 2015 is outstanding where it counts, the feel, the controls, the mechanics, the play.
Want to get involved? PES 2015 is only £19.85 on Xbox One.
It's a serious saving, thanks Turkey!

Launch multiplayer woes aside, we reckon that NBA 2K15 retains its crown as the best basketball game on the market. Matt described it as "a comprehensive package for any NBA fan" in our full review, praising its presentation and features. £12 is a steal for the PC version.
#IDARB is free on Xbox One. Go get it! So long as you're reading this in February 2015 and subscribe to Xbox Live Gold, just click here, sign in and queue up the download.
It's a small file, but you'll have just enough time to invite at least three friends over, preferably with their own Xbox One controllers.
Once you've grabbed a few snacks and perhaps thrown a few tinnies into the fridge, I'll have just enough time to explain why this bizarre mashup of Super Mario, Supraball, basketball and FIFA is one of the local multiplayer events of the last year... but a game that absolutely has to be enjoyed with at least three mates or not at all. And preferably while it's free, because value is going to be very hard to call.
In case you don't know, #IDARB (It Draws A Red Box) is a uniquely crowd-sourced project. Other Ocean tweeted an abstract picture of a red rectangle then reached out to the community for ideas about what the game should actually be. The result is a 4v4 team sport with one ball, two goals, enthusiastic commentary and an emphasis on brotastic team play... only with the mechanics of a sidescrolling platformer.Click here to read more...
I actually think NBA 2K14 plays a slightly better game on the court than this year's instalment in the NBA 2K series. If you're not too bothered by rosters, and just fancy plunging into MyCareer and throwing down some fat jams on unsuspecting fools, this is definitely worth a look. Cheers Pete1993!
Football Manager 2015 is a damn fine game. I rather like what they've done with the UI. It feels cleaner, crisper, and more easy to navigate between the most important screens. It's been patched up a bunch since release, though the match engine still isn't quite perfect.
Nevertheless, the feeling of watching your detailed tactics come off is unparalleled, and FM15 reaffirms that most ruinous legacy of the games that have come before it, nonchalantly sucking you in and making you forget about work or school or other people. It's just as addictive as it has ever been.

You can pick up Madden NFL 15 for £21 on PS4 / Xbox One over at Argos right now.
If you're a fan of the American Footballs then this is a cracking price for a gorgeous looking game about tossing pigskin ovals around, beating up walking suits of plastic body armour, and enjoying not having to watch adverts every two minutes. Cheers shuggyyadobber.

Grab a PS Vita with 8-game Sports / Racing Mega Pack and 16GB memory card for £129.99 from Currys. Click here to buy >>
I love the PS Vita Mega Packs. It was one of Son's best ideas -- bundle a bunch of games in on the cheap, and stick them on a normally stupidly expensive proprietary memory card. The games included in this particular Mega Pack are Gran Turismo, WipEout Pulse, Modnation Racers, Everybody’s Golf, MotorStorm RC, Top Darts, Table Top Tanks, and Table Mini Golf.
Remember to use the 5% off voucher code to get the game for under £15.
Football Manager 2015 is a strange beast. It's full of little contradictions, you see. Football Manager 2015 simultaneously makes navigation easier thanks to a revamped UI, while making other aspects more convoluted. Its match engine offers greater interaction, and yet somehow seems more opaque. But in spite of its contradictions, FM15 does a fine job of delivering a vastly deep, and more integrated and collaborative experience of football management, with some scouting overhauls that make finding diamonds in the rough more rewarding than ever before.
Basically, this year's game has its faults, and doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it'll still steal your life away if you let it.

Vastly improved systems on the pitch make PES 2015 the undisputed king of footballing depth on the pitch this year. It still can't quite match up to FIFA in terms of that televisual presentation, but PES 2015 is outstanding where it counts -- one of the most rewarding football games in years. Cheers davieg1!
If you don't really give a badger's chuff about roster updates, and let's face it those can be patched in because PC gaming is awesome, there's no excuse for not getting on Football Manager 2013 for less than a quid. Do be warned, though, it will almost certainly steal what little free time you have away, and probably impinge on your work/study/relationship/social activity unless you have the resilient willpower of a block of granite.

Sony have kicked off their huge January sales already, and this little gem is one of the best deals on PSN right now. Football Manager Classic on Vita is a comprehensive game, but poorly optimised. If you're looking for a step up from FM on mobile, then this is it, but do be aware that it's a little fiddly.
Just a few weeks to go until Christmas, and any footy fans around looking for a last minute cheap FIFA 15 deal would do well to take note of this one. It's a digital download, so no hard copy, I'm afraid at this price, but it's a steal on the rest of the retail market for what is bound to be a popular Boxing Day staple for many gamers. Just remember to nab your 5% voucher code from CDKeys' FB page.
