And the FIFA Cover that was revealed as the Official one does NOT match what was shown on the wall at E3 at all.

So... At this point, I say, yes Marty is on the cover. And I think that is NOT the actual cover.

I added an edit, agreeing that Marty is very likely to be on the cover, I just don't think that is the cover.

And furthermore that's at E3, not some "EA Sports Conference". I think I was pretty clear about what that 'nonsense' is.









EA has a history of doing it.

I don't even see an official FIFA cover either, just that Messi is there. In fact, he was the cover player for FIFA13, so that's probably not official either...

For the record, I'm reasonably sure he is on the cover. But I can't see that being the actual cover.
A quick google confirms that is indeed the FIFA14 cover. Likewise, the other covers are spot on..

at least as far as I can tell.. I'm no FIFA buff

But I can say, that is freaking stupid.

The actual cover can still look different I agree with you there...but I bet the logo is still obstructed

That's why I say I don't think that was really "leaked" necessarily. Whatever, I'm splitting hairs at this point and that's kind of stupid and pointless around here.

Messi is on the cover two years in a row? That's lazy marketing.

That mock FIFA 14 cover is kickass, though.

If Bobrovsky managed to somehow win this, I'm burning EA to the ground!

First time long time. Anyways. There's no way brodeur does not get the cover. I just hope they use a flattering image of him. Scorpion save would look swell on the cover.

Gotta be:
1) Paddle-down Marty
2) Double-pad stack Marty

My personal vote would be for option two but option 1 is the mock cover at least and it looks beautiful

the scorpion save would have been a sick cover if they had him re-create it from a better on-ice angle... oh but that would cover the logo.

Paddle down is classic Marty. It would be best IMHO.

I dunno.. I mean it's one of the two images I think of when I think of Marty's saves..

but double-pad stack roll would have been epic..

Why does it have to be an action shot? I think they should use this sexy one from when he was drafted.

That's why the current one they've shown is perfect.

I'm sure the cover will look just like the banner they had at E3. Why bother to design two different versions with Brodeur?
