EA Unveils FIFA 10 Box Art, Release Date

Many Americans care deeply about who appears on the front cover of Madden. Many Europeans, on the other hand, do not. They instead care about who ends up on the front cover of FIFA.

And this year, for the first time in a little while, there are new people! For the past few years now, the cover (at least, the British/Australasian cover) has featured Wayne Rooney and Ronaldinho. But with Ronaldinho on a fast track to mid-career oblivion, EA Sports have binned him in favour of a couple of new players.

So, as you can see, the cover has now all gone all-England, featuring Wayne Rooney (centre), Arsenal's Theo Walcott (left) and Chelsea's Frank Lampard (right). As noted, however, this only applies to the title sold in English-speaking PAL territories. Other regions - like Germany, Spain and the US - will feature different stars (Germany's edition, for example, will feature Bayern star Bastian Schweinsteiger alongside Rooney)

Alongside the cover reveal, EA Sports also announced that all versions of the game - on *gasp* 360, PS3, PC, PS2, DS, PSP and Wii - will be out in Europe on October 2.


    that's terrible

    LOL. Yeah not the best.

    I suppose something different and not just choosing such a high-profile player who everyone knows and every little kid says its their favourite. I wouldn't say overrated cause players like Ronaldinho & Cristiano Ronaldo definitely aren't, but if they put someone like Becks on there, then thats a different story.

    Its not like their cover has to feature someone SO familiar that it will gain them extra sales. I mean, its FIFA! It's GOING to sell.

    Either way, its the game thats important.
