FIFA 10 Early Gameplay Video Leaked


The above illustration could well feature an unhappy Mr. Rutter – during the early hours of this morning a FIFA 10 gameplay video was discovered on YouTube. We won’t be featuring it here as EA aren’t happy that somebody has blatantly broken their NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by recording it, and they will be trying to remove it from YouTube as swiftly as possible.

Most of you will have seen it by now, but you should bear in mind that it is from an early version of the game with a lot of work yet to be done on it (in the gameplay, physics, animation and graphic departments to name but a few). You may also have missed Romily Broad’s statement below, so before you form your opinion on the game from the leaked video, make sure you read this:

Hi all. We’re just looking into where this leaked video has emerged from. Someone’s clearly been a bit naughty there!

It’s naughty because – as you’ve realised anyway – the game was not ready to show in the form of gameplay videos at the time of the producer tour last month, when that footage was recorded. While we were happy to let people get their hands on the game of course, there was still a lot work to be done. So that’s why we asked anyone who attended the tour events to sign non-disclosure agreements preventing leaked footage like this appearing, because it’s simply not representative of the final game. Hell, it’s not representative of the many dozens of builds that have been produced since then, let alone the final game.

So, while there’s not much we can do about you seeing this naughtiest of videos, please take it with a pinch of salt and bear in mind there were good reasons for (attempting to!) embargo this sort of footage appearing online just yet.
