FIFA 12 Released Exclusively On Xperia Play For FREE!

EA Sports has just released FIFA 12 in association with Sony Ericsson. The newest FIFA game comes exclusively to the Xperia Play until early next year. What might come as even better news for Xperia Play owners is that the game is actually free via the phones Games widget. That's a pretty good deal as this game would probably be at least £5 when it hits the android market proper. I've had a quick go of this game myself and was very impressed. The graphic, music and game options are great and plentiful, more than enough there to keep you going for hours and hours, and did I mention it was free?

The controls do take some getting used to however, and the fact that the d-pad is not used is somewhat confusing, nevertheless the touchscreen buttons have been implemented well and you also get the choice to use the touchpad on the controller too. If any of you Xperia Play owners out there have had a chance to play this game let me know your thoughts! Oh, one last thing, make sure you have at least 1.5GB of free space on your sd card before attempting to download this game!
