The four year cycle of World Cups can sometimes make for an agonising time. We do have the Euro's to break up the wait but the World Cup is the number one goal of every player and fan the world over. In their traditional move EA are brining their own form of World Cup celebration to to the PS3 and Xbox360. Its a sensible move and one that will likely help to drive sales up on both consoles. For now though we have to be content with some images and details on the release and for next geners don't despair it's only fours till the next World Cup.
