Don't buy points myself, but these seems like an absolute no-brainier if you do(and don't have an active PS+ membership/expiring before the 15th Dec). You're essentially getting your points for the £1 less than usual, and getting an extra month on your PSN(Even if you use CD Keys, rather than in-game, they charge £6.99 so you're essentially getting PS Plus free for a month!)

You can get the offer by following these instructions:
Start FIFA 18
Go to Ultimate Team
On the "FUT CENTRAL" tab go to the bottom right hand rectangle
Scroll the windows with the right stick untill you see "PlayStation Plus Offers" and click X.
It'll then redirect you to the store where you can purchase


You can buy 6 months or a year too, but these aren't cost effective due to the price on memberships on PSN.

CLICK THE DEAL LINK FOR FULL T+C'S


REGARDLESS OF THE OPINION YOU HAVE ON EA/FIFA POINTS/MICROTRANSACTIONS I KNOW THERE'LL BE PEOPLE ON HERE WHO BUY THEM SO THIS COULD BENEFIT THEM.

“REGARDLESS OF THE OPINION YOU HAVE ON EA/FIFA POINTS/MICROTRANSACTION“

We have an opinion because the more people support this rubbish the more it’s going to happen. That might seem fine for those of you who don’t mind pay to win but stop ruining gaming for the rest of us
Buying these is the dictionary definition of dumb lol

How about stop being so selfish and thinking your happiness and enjoyment is worth more than someone else's?

Yeah, and the fact that microtransactions are still a thing. It's as if they are popular or something, weird, eh.

Popular does not mean good. Smoking was popular at one point.

Also microtransactions only need to be popular among a tiny % of players for them to be profitable - they are literally selling you nothing. Hence why they are targeted at "whales". Why do you think these games even bother selling MT credits/boxes 'worth' £100 up.

Ask yourself- what are you really gaining from buying and engaging in microtransactions.

Here is some light reading for you:

You do realise smoking is still a thing, right(not to mention something that people enjoy regardless of the consequences)?? Either way, comparing the too is by far the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

There are so many games out there, find one without micro transactions that you enjoy and let people who want to spend extra money to enjoy a game more, do exactly that.

If you don't like the practise of them, well I'm afraid to say there's plenty of companies with terrible business practises, many of which you probably use unknowingly. At least this is one of the more transparent of transactions, than say, the supply chains of some big manufacturers. If you have such a disdain for something like micro transactions, there are so many more bigger things you should put your time in to(and I suggest you do).

Now to completely ruin my argument.... here's a tip: Use the gambling argument, I'm not going to disagree with you on that, and it sounds like sooner or later that will be changed, which I'm all for!(either taken them out of games aimed at under 18's or making games with them 18+).

I know smoking is still a thing - but it known to be bad for you and also less popular. The only thing i'm using it to compare is your ridiculous statement that if something is popular then it must be good (also MTs are not popluar - they are kept afloat by whales). I guess you could also compare its addictive nature, reduced bank account size, etc.

"There are so many games out there, find one without micro transactions that you enjoy and let people who want to spend extra money to enjoy a game more, do exactly that. "

What a ridiculous statement. Every year more and more games add this crap cause muppets like you keep buying it. Its impossible to escape. If i want to play a good football game not full of microtransactions what would you suggest? There isn't one.

Gambling is just one of the issues. There's lots of issues with MTs as highlighted in those articles.

Can i ask why you feel comfortable paying £35+ for a game (probably more) only to find that when you buy it you cannot access most of its content without either putting in more money or spending an unreasonable amount of time with the game. Do you feel comfortable playing online against someone who has a better team just because they spent more money on packs so they could get that super duper shiney TOTW Ronaldo with +1 to passing?

I'm not going to bother with half that as you've just made up a point I'm supposedly trying to make to help your argument.

There's more to Fifa than UT. If your disgusted at the state of football games then look back at what you got for your money 10+ years ago. Now take out UT for a second, seeing as that's what you have problem with. If you're after a football game then Fifa 18 is excellent value for money regardless.

Now back to ultimate team, someone who spends loads doesn't just get a "super duper shiney". They hope to get one. The easier way to get one is to actually, you know, play the game, get good, learn to trade, and make the coins to make the team you want. So your pay to win argument falls flat here, as with most of the rubbish you've spouted.

Keep reading articles and quoting then if you want. But maybe if you spent more times playing games than moaning about them you'd notice that(on most, let me be clear of that) they are actually enjoyable and rewarding pieces of entertainment.
I don’t get the big deal with micro transactions, if you don’t want to use them, don’t.
If someone packs Ronaldo more power to them. Buying packs doesn’t guarantee it, if people want to blow cash on trying so what? Did you ever think maybe that’s part of the fun? Like opening a pack of Panini stickers and getting two shineys! The thrill of the chase.
If you are FORCED into micro transactions then yeah that’s rubbish. But there is absolutely nothing about Fifa that means spending money will let you win. Just because you have a raft of great players doesn’t make you good at the game.
People will always pay for a shortcut, in this case it doesn’t impact you so I would worry about it so much.

It’s not. You buy packs with coins or with Fifa points. What you’re suggesting is happening would be if there was part of a game you MUST spend real cash on. That’s not happening so your points are irrelevant, it’s an option to spend cash or to build coins in game. Your choice to make.
If people do choose to buy points I can’t see how that in any way could adversely impact your game. As I said earlier, it doesn’t guarantee success. I often come up against monster teams, they may have come from buying packs with cash, coins or through trading. These people often don’t thrash me, they often find themselves getting beat. The better players tend to use less obvious players.
I genuinely can’t see how you think someone else buying packs impacts your enjoyment of the game.

Its called balance. I've played UT for many more hours than reasonable for multiple years and not once have I managed to assemble anything lose to a 'monster team'. It simply is not feasible without spending cash. You cannot simply say my points are irrelevant - they are core to the way in which the game interacts with those that pay and those that don't.

Also to say it does not affect my game - it does. You face those teams in mulitplayer and they have paid for an advantage. It does nto guranatee success but they have not earned that advatnage.

Here is a similar example in battlefront 2: kotaku.com.au/201…ii/

Learn to trade.

Learn to trade.


Not helpful. I know how to trade. Wasn’t lots doing it. Still get nowhere. MTs break games but you are too blind too see it
They don’t break games if done properly.
Buying packs on fifa does not guarantee success for the purchaser, therefore it doesn’t break the game
