    Posted December 25th, 2013 at 12:30 pm 16 Comments
    Last week the year-end Press Row Podcast was released with a discussion on the best sports games of 2013. The results shaping a top three were as expected at the top and maybe somewhat surprising at the bottom. The finally tally had next-gen FIFA 14 taking the crown of Best Sports Game of 2013. In second place was NCAA Football 14 and third was next-gen Madden NFL 25. MLB 13: The Show just missed out on making the top three.

    Another patch has arrived for FIFA 14 on the PS4 today with it expected to go live on the Xbox One also within a matter of days. EA Sports has been supporting both the last-gen and new-gen FIFA exceedingly well as opposed to some other sports gaming franchises in a similar position which have seemed to suffer due to the split. The earlier patch addressed problems for those with Virtual Pro stats and attributes that carried over from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and various stab...
