fifa 18 marketing deal

Electronic Arts’ FIFA is one of its highest-selling franchises, particularly in the European region, so it’s no surprise that console manufacturers are interested in marketing deals for the games. Over the past few years, EA Sports and Microsoft have remained in a partnership over FIFA but if the photo above is anything to go by, it looks like Sony’s stepping up this year.

The photo was posted by Polish YouTuber Oskar “Junajted” Siwiec (pictured) on Facebook, who attended a FIFA 18 event in Germany a couple of days ago. It was subsequently picked up by fans and has since been making rounds online but there’s no official confirmation of anything yet so we’re taking this one with a grain of salt. Some are going as far as suggesting that this is a photoshopped image while others say that FIFA games are often shown off on PlayStation consoles in Germany. However, photos from last year’s FIFA event display Xbox logos on banners so we’re not sure if that’s an accurate claim.

Either way, we’ll find out in due course whether this picture means anything or not.

What do our readers think of this?
