Seems a bit cheap for the 20 pre-order. It's around £40 elsewhere. You can't add it from the actual page, because apparently it doesn't work.

BUT add it straight to basket from the link I've given above

This is a legacy edition isn’t it? Basically 19 with updated rosters etc?

I guess you could argue the same with every year!
I hope no-one rewards EA's laziness by purchasing this
Hot for the price, but really plead with people to avoid getting this. It is clear they don't give a crap about the Switch version and its just another legacy version. They are getting a lot of money out of owners for absolutely bare bones work and that is the EA way.

AO do seem to be having some cracking deals recently - for all 4 copies in stock
Yes it doesn't have any of the new game modes

Yeah, there's obviously going to be a lot missing than there is on the Xbox One / PS4 / PC versions (Volta, or as I'll call it FIFA Street), but for a pre-order price of the update, you can't really grumble.

I think they've all pretty much been roster updates since FIFA 13

I’ve seen a few pre order download codes off eBay for £20. Does anyone know if they’re legitimate? Xbox one, thanks

Can't see it mate. It doesn't release for another 3 months, and I doubt any digital codes have been distributed yet, let alone to eBay sellers. Personally I'd be steering well clear.

They keep moving the goal posts when it comes to the switch version.

With FIFA 18 they just wanted to see how well it would sell and it sold over a million copies so you'd expect more than a few minor improvements for FIFA 19 on the Switch.

To completely abandon adding new modes and features by the third iteration on a popular well selling console is never gonna go down well
Nice early, low price . Heat

I appreciate the frustration, to a degree. Personally I only ever play FUT on my Xbox One, and I don't think I'd be subjecting my Nintendo Switch to the same degree of rage that my X1 controllers suffer.
Ordered thanks
Adjust the title to say Legacy Edition.

This is the link, you can search “FIFA 20 Xbox one” and filter by lowest price. Looks dodgy to me as well but appreciate the reply

Legacy Edition (aka a glorified roster and kit change), COLD. Do not bother with the lazy barebones of a port.
Ill buy this for my nephew in a year when its £5 at CEX.
FIFA should just make one game and charge for DLC updates to improve graphics hardly. Would save a lot of time and money.

But, be aware, 19 doesn't have any squad building challenges or rivals rewards meaning you're pretty much going to have to spend real money to get a half decent team.
I ordered it and hate myself for it.. so thanks very much

Trading FIFA 19 to game for £16 this week..
High five! Going to look forward into it

When you say they don't give a crap about the switch version, make that for any version of FIFA 😄

Bang on the money here ! It's cheap because it's just updated and doesn't including FIFA street mode
I made a mistake of buying a FIFA game on the switch once. It was shocking!
Please don't make the same mistake I did guys, it's not the same as the console games and never will be.

At least wait for reviews before buying.
I have had 18 and 19 on the switch and pretty much just played ultimate team. People forget the switch is very limited power wise compared to the PS4/xb1 so we were never going to get the same level of game. For what EA have to work with on the hardware side they have delivered a playable game and the graphics aren’t half bad either. At this price it’s well worth it and a more fair price.

We want a switch version that doesn't sacrifice key game features the other platforms have. This kind of disregard for switch users should not be rewarded by people purchasing this. If the switch version had FIFA street mode included I'd buy it but I see no difference otherwise in comparison to the previous installments. FIFA 19 will be on sale again soon for less than £10 so if recommend people buy that over this in September

On the flipside, if no one gets the slightly cut down version, they'll unlikely invest in doing a more featureful version in the future if adoption rates are low. Chicken and the egg

Same and you could not play with your friend contacts online, only random matches!
As annoying as it is for Switch users, you can kind of understand why EA is only releasing a legacy edition. It probably isn't worth the time and money spent on making the full package for the switch when most Nintendo users will have a Ps4 or Xbox anyway, and the ones who don't will probably not be a Fifa target audience (Female gamers etc).

Very likely just account game shares, this happens with most big games.
