Some people say you can have too much of a good thing, but we say they can bugger right off. A cake is good, right? But are two cakes bad? No, theyre just more cake, and we like cake so well take all we can get. Om nom nom.
In gaming terms, the only thing better than a great videogame is a great videogame that acts as the start of a great franchise. Final Fantasy, Burnout, Super Mario Bros… We love them not only because theyre great but also because of what they later gave us. The only

Hi, guys. Im looking forward to the imminent launch of FIFA 08, and wanted to tell you more about our new game mode this year “Be A Pro: Co-op Season”, how it came about, and some tips for playing it.

If you never see the point of buying every yearly update of EA's sports titles, EA's about to give you one: from September 1 it will begin shutting down the online servers for most of its 2006-edition sports titles.
As of that date, the online gameplay options on games like FIFA World Cup 2006, NBA Live 06, Madden 06 and Tiger Woods 06 will be rendered useless on all formats including PC.
This means you'll have to purchase the newer editions of the games to continue the fight via the web, or
We spoke with associate producer Paul Hossack after our hands-on time with the PS2 version of FIFA 08, and he almost spilled the beans on FIFA 09. When we asked him whether the next FIFA would appear on the machine, he said he's been told not to give details on games that haven't been announced, but did have this to say:
"We believe pretty strongly in the PS2 platform and that there are still some games to come from FIFA on the PS2. Put another way, FIFA 05 was our last version on PS1 - and I

As we promised earlier, here's the full interview with Paul Hossack, associate producer on FIFA 08 for PS2. Having worked on seven FIFA titles on nine different platforms, he certainly knows his stuff. And seems to be a fan of Stevie Gerrard too. Fair enough, in our opinion. Check it out
