While playing on your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 may be a thing of the past, many people around the world are still using their last generation console every single day. This seems to be a very common occurrence among gamers that enjoy playing the sporting genre, hence why many major sporting developers still release on the last-gen consoles.
However, one of the major downfalls of gaming on last generation consoles is that they are very limiting, which is why many developers are steering clear. This brings us to FIFA 17. While the game is launching on last-gen consoles, it will suffer from limitations that will affect a number of features and modes that can only be played on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
But don’t fear, as EA Sports are committed to bringing you gameplay innovation and popular game modes and features. EA has even stated:
“There are still big changes coming to fans playing on those systems with gameplay innovations, audio enhancements and the brand new Squad Building Challenges for our FIFA Ultimate Team fans. In addition, Career Mode sees the edition of Pre-Season Training and Career Mode Training to add more depth to your season. “
Here are some of the features that will be available to play on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of FIFA 17:
