    EA Sports today officially announced a new PGA Tour game is on the way however few details were provided beyond that.

That's why the latest game in that series wouldn't let you even see the pros play outside of near the greens through highlights let alone have them be con...

Additionally it was announced that developer HB Studios has been acquired by ...

    FIFA 21 has gone live a full day early with the next-gen version on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Unfortunately the process to download it for those who already own the PS4/Xbox One versions (and get the upgrade for free) isn't quite as simple as one would hope. After spending considerable time trying to figure out the process it worked by deleting the PS4 FIFA off my PS5 and reinstalling the game which is when the option to select the PS5 FIFA was provided. It's also worth noting that...

    Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21 will miss the launch of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Release of both games will instead come on Friday, December 4. Speculation had started to build of a possible delay or even cancellation as launch of the new consoles neared and yet EA Sports would not comment on why they were not promoting the games or even selling pre-orders. This is surprising news given that Madden and FIFA (unlike NBA 2K21) are not expected to be dramatically different than what...
