I just saw this on twitter
Any chance the game has women's teams this year or am I too optimistic?
nope, EA would actually have to do some programming. Usually, they charge $39.95 for art work. God I miss Sierra Sports.
I figured it was too much to ask
the women should have their own video game. I'm tired of playing FIFA 11 and making "Megan Rapinoe" and "Abby Wambach"
Then what team will Solo be on FIFA 12 if not WPS? The USWNT?
It was just a commercial she shot with Steve Nash for the game.
It's kind of odd that EA Sports sponsors girls soccer.
Nope, not at all.
There are tons of young soccer girls out there, and believe it or not, quite a few of them play the soccer game on their video game console.
But this is not girls soccer since there's no women on FIFA 12 although they sure as hell COULD have had a WNT section!
All EA Sports has to do is include a WNT section in the game, just like you said.
Shooooot .... they can keep it rather simple (for now).
Include exactly 16 popular women's soccer nations (USA, Brazil, Japan, China, Germany, Norway, Sweden, France, England, Australia, North Korea, New Zealand, Nigeria, Canada, Mexico, Colombia), and have "real players" from each nation.
That way you can play out a current level "WWC", with 16 nations.
In the FIFA 2015 release a few years from now, they can include at least 24 nations then.
You won't be able to do the qualification stage, but at least you can play through the entire WWC (group round and knockout stage). After you win the WWC Final with one nation, then you move on to another nation and try to win the cup with them.
They can also include: (which would also be a nice feature in the game)
North America All-Star team (Canada, USA, Mexico players)
South America All-Star team (Brazil and Colombia players)
Europe All-Star team (Germany, Norway, Sweden, France, England players)
Asia All-Star team (Japan, Australia, China, North Korea players)
FIFA World All-Star team (the 21 best women's players in the world)
Marta would have an overall rating of 98 (scale of 1-99), and 99 in "skill"
Aly Riley as a defender would have an overall rating of 96 (high scores in all areas)
Kelly Smith at 96 (but ranked a 62 as "withstanding injury prone")
Abby Wambach at 95 (and a ranking of 98 in the air)
Hope Solo at 95 as a goalkeeper (ranked lower in "composure")
Caroline Seger at 94 in the midfield (ranked lower in "avoiding a caution")
Garefrekes ranked as 97 in the air, and 93 overall at her position
