I wasn't aware there was a FIFA 12 for the Wii. I understand that sometimes they skip years on some platforms.

When you consider that any yearly sports release is going to have at best a 6 to 8 month development cycle, buying each new release is already a dubious prospect . How much does one expect they can really change from year to year? There are occasional engine updates to enhance the eye candy, but not every year. The most you could reasonably expect is a roster updates, some mechanics tweaks, a new feature to add a bullet point on the box, and maybe some new animations.

Why any sports fan would pay 50 or 60 bucks a year for what is essentially a minor expansion for the previous year's game is beyond me, but millions do, year in year out. Why wouldn't EA continue the practice?
