EA Will Own Up to One of Gaming’s Biggest Pricing Mistakes

Some fans landed an epic deal on FIFA 23 as part of a pricing bug, and publisher Electronic Arts will honor the bug. PC Gamer reports that the Epic Games Store in India was selling the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 on PC for Rs 4.80, which is equivalent to around $0.06 USD.

That’s a pretty good discount of 99.98%. Even though this is a bug, EA will not cancel any orders. Instead, everyone who got FIFA 23 for 6 cents will actually get it for that price.

EA said in an email (via Sportskeeda) and confirmed to PC Gamer that it was a “pretty spectacular own goal” on behalf of the company, referencing the pricing error. “It was our mistake, and we wanted to let you know that we will honor all advance purchases made at that price,” the company said.

FIFA 23 launches on September 30 for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Fans don’t have to wait much longer for EA’s next sports game, though, as Madden NFL 23 arrives on August 19. EA’s NHL 23 is expected to arrive after FIFA 23, but a specific release date has yet to be announced.

In other FIFA 23 news, EA and Marvel have teamed up for a collaboration that brings Ultimate Team players reimagined as Marvel heroes.
