FIFA 08 Demo Available In US Not Europe

It seems this whole David Beckham thing might be working in the US as EA have released the FIFA 08 demo over there, but have revealed the demo “won’t be launching in Europe today as was expected“. EA revealed that the delay stems from a “couple of issues which we couldn’t get ironed out in time to release today despite working through out the night to get these sorted.

With the 702.7 MB demo now released in America, info on what exactly it contains is coming out. Seven teams will be unlocked in the demo with Barcelona, Manchester United, Marseille, Red Bulls, America, Bayern Munchen and Inter all been playable for one four minute half of one match. However, it is likely America will be repleased with a different team in the Euro release.

Ea went on to comment that “We understand how disappointing this will be to everyone and we’re absolutely gutted this has happened“. Maybe everyone in the US should start wearing sarongs now to celebrate!
