Recently, EA Sports, the game developer behind the popular FIFA franchise, announced that they are raising the prices of FIFA points, which is the in-game currency used to purchase player packs, by up to 20% in certain regions. The announcement caused an uproar among the game community, with many players calling out the company for the lack of justification for the sudden price hike.
No Clear Justification Provided
EA Sports did not provide any clear justification for the increased prices of FIFA points, causing many players to question the reasons behind the sudden hike. While the company did cite regional differences and fluctuating currency exchange rates as contributing factors, many gamers are not convinced that these reasons warrant such a significant price increase.
Gamers Feel Cheated
Many gamers feel cheated by the increased price of FIFA points, especially considering that the game itself already costs $60 or more, and players who want to unlock access to all features of the game need to spend even more money on FIFA points. The lack of transparency and apparent greediness on the part of EA Sports has left many players feeling disillusioned with the company and the game.
Lack of Communication
Another issue that gamers are taking issue with is the lack of communication from EA Sports regarding the increased FIFA point prices. Players have expressed frustration that they were not notified of the increase beforehand, leaving them caught off guard when they went to purchase points only to find out that they had suddenly become much more expensive.
