Why is it a load of bollocks? Should girls not be able to play as their female footballing role models?

I'd rather they sorted the issues with their game, than introduced features that a tiny minority of players would want. IF they've fixed everything else, I'm quite happy for them to go hunting for whatever market there is for women's football on a computer game.

Obviously EA believe there is a market, or this wouldn't happen.

Are you saying people should stick to role models that are the same sex?

Racist.

They can't accurately model the difference between the way Barcelona and Mansfield play, so god knows how they'll manage to model women's football.

Racist.
From Ben's story:

While domestic female teams seem a natural ambition for the future, in the short term Rutter said he is looking forward to delivering his eight- and 11-year-old daughters to school in peace. “The younger one in particular is a very keen footballer, and I get a lot of stick on the playground about us not including women in the game. Finally being able to say we are will make for a refreshing change.

“For girls of that age, or indeed any age, it doesn’t make sense for there not to be any women in Fifa. In the past there has always been a general acceptance that they weren’t in there. But within my household and social circle it’s always been significantly disappointing that female gamers couldn’t play Fifa with footballers of their own sex.

“I’m really glad we’re doing it. We’ve got some cracking teams in there and there’ll be some amazing matches. It’s a big relief for everyone.”

I think they've been testing it in FUT this year. The goalkeepers are about right.

Yer **** the minorities!

Terrific move by EA. I've no doubt it's a move, driven by money and not morality...but either way great way to raise the profile of the Women's game.

Female gamers are a minority? Welcome to 2015, you're gonna hate it.

This is awesome news, though. The replies to EA's tweet announcing it? Not so much.

I'll do a "survey" when mine gets home. I struggle to believe that 8-year-old girls hassle a game developer for anything. What's he doing hanging around a playground anyway?

If anyone here has a child, sister, girlfriend or wife that has remarked on the inability to use female footballers in a computer game - please let us know. Ta.

I'm aware they're not. But going on personal experience - they play Minecraft, Terraria, Sonic the Hedgehog and show little interest in playing FIFA. I doubt that this revelation will do much to change it.

Does anyone know how the women are rated? (Cue for barrage of sexist comments)

If it is using the same scale as the men, it will be interesting to see where they are on that scale.
