Rumor: Xbox One To Come Bundled With FIFA 14 With No Additional Cost

According to CVG, Microsoft has signed an agreement to include in each Xbox One package, "a great multiplatform title" for free in Europe. Although the source, did not name the title, saying only that it will be one of the major releases this Christmas, the rumors that have circulated in the last hours pointed out that the title is FIFA 14.

UPDATE: Microsoft and EA confirmed that those who pre-order a Xbox One in Europe will get a copy of FIFA 14 at no extra cost "while stocks last".

The source also revealed that the official announcement will be made tomorrow during Microsoft's conference at gamescom. Apparently, this agreement between Microsoft and EA ( Fifa 14's producer) is part of a strategy from Microsoft in order to decrease the price gap between the Xbox One and the PS4, thus providing a title that it would cost more than 50 € in retail, at no additional cost.

Although some may not care about Fifa, let's not forget that Fifa 13 was the most sold sports game ever, selling over 7.4 million units in 6 weeks. Following the recent Xbox One's delay in 8 European countries, it seems like Microsoft is trying to compensate fans, and in turn, getting more sales.

The Xbox One will be available in November for $499,99 in 13 countries, with the remaining countries getting the console in 2014. Is this bundle enough to convince you to buy an Xbox One? Share your opinion in the comments below.
