Fifa 09 For Xbox 360 - 95p *Instore* @ Blockbuster

Found 6th Mar 2011Made hot 7th Mar 2011
Not sure if this is posted already, but went to my local Blockbuster in Long Eaton, Nottingham. I saw Fifa 06, 07 and 09 for 95p! I've been told 09 is better than 10, so worth a play for 95p! There were a few copies in mine, apologies if not nationwide, please let us know though if you find it elsewhere

yep its in all of my stores its on PS3 aswell btw

best version imo, used to thrash most online.....only probs i had were cheats and the occasional good player....got to top 1000......just be aware you can no longer play this online as EA have kindly switched off the servers (without telling anyone), just a little post on their website (like an xbox owner is gonna look at that....EA suck!!)

as for fifa11 is terrible...poor controls, poor AI and dreadful servers that never seem to be up!!

doubt if ill buy fifa12 at this rate if thats how they treat their customers

agree, i reckon mr idiot who is in charge thought this would be a good cost cutting exercise....still 0000's playing 09 and they just cut it off......seems a bit soon give the fact that 07 and 08 were cut off at same time!!

what also shocked me was fifa10 world cup server also switched off....i only paid £4-5 for mine but if i paid more id ask for my money back....i wont be buying another wc version again ever

its this attitude that drives legit people like me thinking stuff em ill just pirate

agree re: offline play is easily worth 95p, better than the joke oaps with broken legs fifa11

not into football games myself, but im voting for the deal and its a great price

have some heat

Great price but I like the updates even though they are too costly, fifa 10 was a joke with the keepers always leaving thier lines! agreed about the fifa 11 servers, half time they go down or just won't let you connect at all! they need to intergrate a proper management side to the game though

WC only for psp and wii was switched off... not 360 or ps3??

Great deal! Shame I'd have to walk 90-120 mins just to get to my nearest BB...oh well. :C

Got FIFA 6 from there for 75p though.

Without telling anyone? That's a lie, they announced it a good few MONTHS beforehand. I know it's still a bit lame, but I'm not even sure it's legal to just switch them off, they definitely announced it.

Also, I disagree on FIFA 11. It's the best as far as I'm concerned, and I've never had a problem with the servers (except for clubs, but they're always online, just terribly laggy).

Thanks, but I live in Sandiacre so Long Eaton is my local for shops :-)

They should be required by law to retain active servers until the end of the Generation of Console as you are paying for online capability until that time! EA suck, FIFA 11 was the last version i will ever invest in. Hopefully Pro EVO 12 will be better anyway, it's been 4 years (PES 08) since a good PES Game.

I didn't realise that was why I couldn't connect to the EA servers, but now I know.... Good thing I'll enjoy some of the off-line play anyway!

why dont you read what i said....they announced it and posted/hid it on their website.....why the hell would anyone playing a game on an xbox360 visit their website? does this mean i have to check their site every week in case on of my other games is no longer available onlie....somehow i have better things to do

they should put the message on their servers.....so it appears on the ticker at the bottom of the screen (where the football results were)

i would have been happy to pay a small amount a month for them to keep it up...their loss....but agree its put me off EA

most of the time you feel like you are in total control on fifa09, but with fifa11 you dont its far too laggy

Thanks for the informal post



my best wins online were 29-1 (i scored theirs, lol!!), 24-0 and 19-2 (i scored theirs), best streak was 54 unbeaten (then youd meet some a***e level 1 cheat with eg invisible players, a team full of ronaldos or one guy who had ronaldo playing for Real Madrid (muppet....maybe he had a time machine!!) or worse, ronaldo, kaka, rooney playing for millwall......or defenders quicker than ronaldo....trust me i quit quickly! I never ever played mexicans (country full of cheats), french (almost as bad), americans (quite alot of cheats)

one common cheat was to mess up your default stats, so your speed / etc wouldnt be setup to say 50% instead of 95% for man utd i think.....but most cheats like this were easily negated if you set the customer setting to counter attack...lol!! you just had to be quick when they attacked

despite this i still beat most cheats as most were clueless how to play it, like the arrogant american 2-0 with 5 mins (about 30 secs) on clock to go, 2-2...his cheat falied i won 6-2 then told him where to go and got him banned from xblive for life (i have contacts)

one american was annoyed because i played man u v his brazil and won 6-0 - he said i was no good as just played man u - so i played fulham v brazil - won 10-0, then reading v brazil won 4-0.....he went quiet

Nice, I really enjoyed Fifa 09 (only Fifa game I really had as I'm not a football fan) so will get it again, couldn't be bothered with Fifa 10 and 11 though, same game to me.
