If Konami/PES were on the ball, they would release one on PS4/XB1, sadly i doubt its the case.

Literally, why on earth are they doing this. It's not as if there will be new teams. It's not like there will be new players.

New stadiums (does anyone care enough about this) and 100 new animations? Pretty sure next gen versions feature over 1000 new animations so this seems pretty pointless.

Just sounds like a massive cash grab which of course it is, but I think they did it right last time for the euros just having it as DLC

Hello. My name is Simon and I'm in charge of EA's Super Great Decision Making Department. Please help yourself to an employee, I've had two myself this morning and they are quite delicious today. We took the decision to make the World Cup edition of FIFA 14 exclusively available on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 because we have yet to see any real evidence of the Xbox One and Playstation 4. We believe all the reports and footage that have been so far gathered on these so called "next generation" consoles to be false and are more likely part of a marketing scheme to sell timeshares in Salford holiday resorts. We simply cannot dedicate resources to an internet myth on the slim the chance that these consoles maybe real.

We are however pleased to announce that pre-order incentives for those using scientifically recognised consoles will include elixir of unicorn, the essence of true love's first kiss and a chance to play in the World Cup final itself.

By this logic they won't have to bother making a next gen game ever again because the install base on the consoles will be smaller on them for years to come.
