FIFA 20: Legacy Edition accounted for just 1% of total FIFA 20 sales in the UK for launch week

Fans obviously not happy with the Legacy Edition

FIFA 20 has launched in the UK, and it took the #1 spot on the software charts for the week. That's no surprise, but just how much of that #1 spot did the Switch version account for? The data breakdown reveals that the PS4 contributed 61% of FIFA 20 sales, followed by Xbox One at 38%, and Switch at just 1%. Considering how Switch owners really got the shaft with this installment in the series, it's not surprising to see so few Switch owners turn up to purchase the game.

FIFA 19 gets a permanent price reduction in Japan

A sizable price drop

With FIFA 20: Legacy Edition being the newest installment in the FIFA franchise, it's time to drop the price on last year's game. EA has bumped down FIFA 19 on Switch from 6,264 yen to 4.200 yen, and given the game new cover art as well. Since Switch is only getting a Legacy Edition game this year, it might be a really good idea to take the FIFA 19 route.

FIFA 20 cover stars revealed

You're covered

EA has revealed the cover starts for FIFA 20, with Eden Hazard on the standard cover, and Virgil van Dijk on the Champions Edition. As you probably know, the Switch version of FIFA 20 is going to be a 'Legacy' edition, so who knows who we'll get on the cover. Probably the same guy who was on there last year!

UK Gambling Commission says FIFA Ultimate Team Packs/Loot Boxes aren't gambling

You win this round, EA

A few weeks back, EA was involved in a discussion with the UK Gambling Commission to decide whether or not FIFA's Ultimate Team Packs and Loot Boxes were gambling. After some deliberation, the commission has decided that they should not be qualified as such, at least when it pertains to current legislation wording. UK Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McCarthur had this to say.

"There are other examples of things that look and feel like gambling that legislation tells you are not—[such as] some prize competitions but because they have free play or free entry they are not gambling, but they are a lot like a lottery."

There's no doubt EA is happy with the ruling, but it's likely most fans will be feeling the opposite way.
