FIFA 15 – PS4 vs Xbox One vs PC Graphics Comparison

While many games go out of the trend in a couple months, sports games never have such an issue.

You can actually play FIFA 15 throughout the year on your favorite platform. But, the question is which edition is the superior of them all?

We can’t make any bold claims unless there is strong proof to our words. You can find a bunch of videos below that run FIFA 15 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC comparing the graphics, game play style as well as overall visual appeal.

Before we conclude anything, a lot of factors should be taken into consideration because the winner is not only about the best looking game but also the one that offers most frame rates. Most gamers obviously know that PC could surpass everything else in this regard because of the superior hardware rig but the other versions are now equally competitive because of the next gen hardware on the consoles.

Frame Rate Test Results

Frame rates always matter and if you wish to enjoy a sports game as FIFA 15 at its best, it should render the best frames in every situation, be it a crowded scenario when all players are on screen or when you are near the goal post with the opponent team surrounding it, the frames shouldn’t drop which is mandatory for a satisfying experience.

It is great to know that both consoles offered a solid 60 FPS throughout the game without any drop at all except for the goal celebrations which doesn’t count as you are not actually playing it. However, visually the Xbox One looked bit superior.

Comparing with PC Edition

The same engine has been used by EA for FIFA 15 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. But, the game looks different on each one of these platforms. If you are looking for the best color and contrast ratio, the Xbox One edition is surely the best of the console counterparts. However, in terms of smooth edges, better player faces and anti-aliasing, the PC version easily wins the fight. The frames per second were good on all platforms which means you don’t have to worry about losing a kick or a goal shot because of lag.

Playstation 4 had a great hardware at the beginning, but it looks like Xbox One has caught up recently. Playing FIFA 15 on Xbox One seems the best choice unless you love it on a PC with a controller.

FIFA 15 January Upgrades: 5 Players Who Deserve Upgrades!

Next week marks the beginning of FIFA 15 January winter upgrades. EA Sports FIFA has shocked us all with the World XI Team of the Year (TOTY), featuring the very first ever 99 rated player, Cristiano Ronaldo. In addition to that unreal squad, EA released the first batch of winter transfers a whole week in advance. What could be next?

January upgrades of course! With in-form players, such as Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa, who else could be deserving of an upgrade come February? Here, we look at the five players who deserve to get upgraded. Now, the list is not exhaustive and may not represent all the top players deserving of a rating increase.

Why is Chelsea’s Mr. Versatile only rated 79 on FIFA? You don’t get called the best defender in the Premier League by Jamie Carragher for no good reason.
Azpilicueta has become one of the leading full backs in the world after a less than high profile move to Chelsea back in 2012. Even though he plays most of his football at left back, this right footer still consistently gets 8 out of 10 match rating each week. The 25-year-old has also made 10 international caps for Spain since his debut in 2013

If he continues the sort of form he has shown for Chelsea, Marseille and Osasuna, Azpilicueta is set for a long career at the top and could potentially go down as one of the most decorated players in Premier League history.

FUT 15 Top 20 – FUT winter upgrades

Now that we have reached the half way point of the soccer season, FUT 15 winter upgrades are in-bound and knowledge of which players are likely to receive a stat boost is extremely important. At the end of January, EA will release newly upgraded cards into packs and we take an in-depth look at who those players could be.

Last team we ran over the top 20 in-forms to trade and in this article we will run through 20 players in FUT who have done enough to warrant a boost of at least 2 to their overall rating. The new cards to be released will demand a high price when they first appear in packs and clicking through this slideshow will highlight the cards that will be most sought after:

20 – Harry Kaness (2015-01-05 at 05.01.55)

Current Rating – 68

New Rating – 76

The 21 year old Tottenham striker has lit up the English Premier League in the first half of the season, scoring 7 goals in the league and 15 in total. His current card is only a 68 with very average stats, so you can only imagine the price his card will demand if he is a 74 silver.

Those hoping to use Kane for a reasonable price will hope that the young English striker gets upgraded to a gold card, as this will mean his card weight will be higher and therefore he will be more affordable. Despite it only being half a season, Kane has shown form that warrants upgrading to at least a 76 gold.
