  • Reports: Hackers linked FIFA 12 to hacked accounts of Xbox Live

    Xbox Live

    According to the details, the common thing between complaints appears to be FIFA 11 and FIFA 12.

    "Yesterday, my live account got hijacked and charged just over $100. Specifically, two large purchases of points followed by the download of FIFA 12, which had 2 achievements unlocked for the game, and every MS point spent on Gold Premium Packs and DLC,"

    The above gamer complaint that he wasn't even at home when the purchases took place, and that he came to know about this via confirmation email that Microsoft sends.

    Other complaints similar to this, "Sure enough, all of the Microsoft points that were stored in my XBL account had been spent on in game items for FIFA 11(I don’t own that game… hell, I don’t even like soccer video games) and whoever spent my MS points had then tried to purchase more. Presumably, when that purchase failed, they abandoned my account and went on to steal from some other unsuspecting gamer."

    On all these things Microsoft has following things to say:

    "We do not have any evidence the Xbox Live service has been compromised. We take the security of our service seriously and work on an ongoing basis to improve it against evolving threats.  However, a limited number of members have contacted us regarding unauthorized access to their accounts by outside individuals.  We are working with our impacted members directly to resolve any unauthorzied changes to their accounts."

    "It's not a title specific issue and is coincidental that FIFA has been tied to a number of compromised accounts,"

  • FIFA 11 Patch Release Date and Details Revealed

    EA today announced that they will be bringing a new patch update later this month for their latest release FIFA 11.

    This new patch update will bring in lots of changes to the game whose details is given below. It will be coming out on November 12 for PS3 and on November 17 for Xbox 360.

    FIFA 11

    Here is complete detail:

    Gameplay:

    You'll now find that the implementation of the offside rule in the game is more accurate, both in terms of when the infringement is called and in terms of player positions when it happens. Occasional strange player positioning at kick-off have also gone away, while shooting from weak volleys has been improved, too. Importantly, so-called 'micro-pausing' during gameplay will also be a thing of the past. Overall, your gameplay experience should now be even better.
      
    Career mode:

    There are a lot of improvements you'll notice here, which will all further boost the realism of the mode, but in summary: Your match fixtures during the season for cups and leagues, as well as the time of day they all happen, should now be much more realistic. We've also improved how accurately player ratings and growth are displayed, as well as making sure the players get the awards they deserve, when they deserve them. Using an odd exploit to secure a whopping $2 billion budget has now gone away, while the emails you receive as a manager will be more appropriate and players you've loaned out will now be easier to see and manage.

    Online head-to-head:

    Matchmaking will be enhanced, particularly in terms of initially connecting to an opponent, while we've removed a couple of exploits that people were using to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. Also, players will now no longer be able to use Passing Power Assistance in ranked matches.

    Online clubs:

    We've already made a lot of server-side improvements to the Clubs experience, particularly in terms of matchmaking, match results and progress in Cups. With the game update we'll be making a range of improvements to stats and league-table presentation, too, as well as improving the camera motion
    when your player is a long way from the ball.

    Presentation:

    You'll now find that cut-scenes are improved during substitutions, along with a range of more subtle improvements around of the game.

    Audio:

    Creation Centre teams will now benefit from crowd chants, while we've improved the custom chants area as well. We've also managed to enhance a few audio triggers during gameplay, meaning you'll get an even better atmosphere as things happen during a match.

    Creation center:

    The general performance of the game when it involves teams and players created via the Creation Centre has been improved. Also, you'll now find that the formations and attributes you set on the web will now transfer more accurately to the console.

    FIFA Store:

    We've made sure that Live Season will be available for multiple users on the same console. Some people who had switched from an inactive XBL account to a Gold Account were having problems seeing the content of the store - we've got that covered, too.

    Kits:

    Lincoln City and Montpellier fans, your teams' kits should now be right on the money.
