10w ago - EA Sports Line Producer Sebastian Enrique confirmed that FIFA 14 is on PS3 today alongside detailing the emotions captured from great goals below.
To quote: After playing past FIFAs and watching real-world football, we realized that we weren't quite capturing how emotional it feels to score a goal. In FIFA 14, we want people to really feel that emotion of scoring great goals.
In addition to the emotion in the context of a match, great goals are achieved by either (or both) great finishing and fantastic build up play.
The major changes and innovations we're bringing into gameplay this year enable players to create and feel those exhilarating moments that happen when they've assembled plays their own way through midfield.
Finishing is both earned and rewarding in FIFA 14. We're transforming the tempo of the game and inspiring players to build possession through midfield rather than sprint down the wings during box-to-box matches. Last year it was too easy to fall down into creating the same cheap chances over and over again.
Major changes to dribbling - with new features like Protect the Ball, Sprint Dribble Turns, and Variable Dribble Touches - create more of a midfield battle, and make the magical moment of a goal more rewarding.
11w ago - Following up on his previous PlayStation 4 updates, today Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida shared details on the PS4, HDMI capture functionality, PSN download speeds and requirements for upgrading games from PS3 to PS4.
From DualShockers.com (linked above), to quote: "The first is on the disk requirement of the upgrade of select games from the PS3 to the PS4 version. Looks like the PS4′s disk drive will have some work to do.
Jon Haeffele (jj75XP): So for PS3-PS4 game upgrade will the PS3 disc need to be in the PS4 once or will it be every time when trying to play the PS4 version?
Shuhei Yoshida (yosp): every time
The second tidbit of information is on the recently announced support of video capture via HDMI. Don’t expect it for launch, as it will be introduced afterwards with a patch.
Sagman12 (sagman12PC): Will HDMI capture work on day 1 or is it a patch you guys will release after the ps4 launch?
