    The "legacy edition" idea seems ok to me. It's not like much changes between yearly updates of the "full" version anyway, and at least this version is up front about it.

    Upfront yes, but £39.99 for a re-skin?

    They only stopped making the consoles fairly recently, there is still a big market for it.

    Isn't the full version just a reskin anyway. Very little has changed from what I've read. Fifa has stagnated imo. I think they should do away with yearly updates altogether, the changes are so incremental. Of course they won't because people buy them every year but only in sports games can you get away with releasing a new one every year that is basically the same with a few transfers changed and some cosmetic differences.

    Better model would surely be have a brand new game every time there is a sea change, like moving to a new engine and then do updates/dlc at the start of every new season when changes are merely incremental.
