78w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble has interviewed EA Sports' David Rutter today on FIFA 13 for PS3.
Below is the interview, to quote: With Euro 2012 getting underway and the latest version of the beautiful game on PlayStation 3 mesmerising crowds at E3 2012, it was the perfect time to catch up with EA SPORTS FIFA 13 producer David Rutter.
Here, he explains how this year's online offering is second to none.
Simon: How has FIFA Street impacted on FIFA 13?
David Rutter: The Precision Dribbling 2.0 - that's the glamorous name for it - did owe something to that game, yes. We were looking at improved dribbling overall as a big holistic feature, we wanted the ability to move in 360 degrees, we wanted fidelity of distance and we also wanted face angle.

After that was achieved it became obvious that another cool part of it would be the ability to take defenders on using skill moves.
