    Yes it would. And don't start the whole Americans-into-football debate. I don't care if IGN, a predominantly American site, calls the game FIFA "Soccer" 08. The game is called Football. We invented, we set the name. It's only called soccer in America because you already have a more popular sport in the NFL. It actually really does bug me. If you want to embrace Football you should be embracing the name too and not trying to use your worldwide influence to change the name to Soccer simply because it suits you better.
    /rant over

    Anyway, I'm extremely unsure over these motion controls. There is potential but I do think the fundamental problems of using your hands to simulate a sport played with your feet may be too much to overcome. We shall see. Mario Strikers controls are awesome - but I suppose going down that route would have just been the "safe" route for EA. At least the company, so often accused of churning out game after game with only profit in mind, is trying to innovate in a fairly major way.

    hell yeh!! well said...

    anyways, i cannot possibly imagine playin, and truly enjoyin, fifa usin these controls...it jus sounds so awkward! an i think that for football games to get better, a wider range of passes an shots need to be available...i liked the placed shot on 07, but more things like dip, an better curling of the ball when shootin, an spin control for long balls need to be implemented...can anyone think of how this can be done usin motion controls? i was disappointed at the lack of 'bein able to control a second man' on 07, an i'd like to see this on 08 cos it was so much better controllin the second man when makin a through ball, but again, how could this be achieved?

    all that bein said, i will give the controls a chance, cos who knows, it might completely stun us all an turn out to be amazin!

    i am wonderin what's gon happen with the camera tho for multiplayer (as mentioned by raisinghelen), cos overhead jus isn't an option i don't feel, but side on wouldn't work either! a split screen maybe?!? i hope not!
