With the build up to the FIFA 16 release, EA Sport have been showing what will be available for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Today they’ve revealed what will (and won’t) be included with the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 release.
Here is what they won’t be including in the release for the previous generation consoles:
- Creation Center
- Custom Music and Chants
- The FIFA Interactive World Cup (Available for Playstation 4 & Xbox One)
- In-game presentation with Jeff Stelling (also remove from Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC)
- Match Lobbies
- Secondary English Commentary with Clyde Tyldesley and Andy Townsend
Now that we know what won’t be included, here is what will be coming to the two consoles:
- Confidence in Defending – The upgrades to the defending in the game will be included, meaning you should be able to rely on your team to defend as a unit and be able to balance between attack and defence when tracking opponents.
- Defensive Agility – mobility and locomotion changes to allow for better opponent tracking.
- Defend as a Unit – Defend together, win together.
- New Tackling Fundamentals – new slide and standing tackles to make going for the ball more fun and rewarding.
- Control in Midfield – more focus on the midfield game, including the importance of possession.
- Interception Intelligence – anticipation of passes and options for shutting player down.

The reason given for the removal of certain options was down to console limitations and available resources. While players on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 may not like it, this will obviously be something that starts to happen more often.
