We posted in an article some while ago a unfinished version of the cover for FIFA 13 which featured Lionel Messi. Forget about it. This has just been announced as the official cover for FIFA 13 and will feature the same Lionel Messi but in a new setup.
Just for the record here is the old (unfinished) version of the cover for the PS3 version of FIFA 13:
The new one looks much better and i think Messi it's the best player that could be featured on the cover of FIFA 13. EA made a major move and because Messi's contract with Konami (Pro Evolution Soccer) expired Electronic Arts acted fast and signed the best football player in the world.
Many are wondering why another player hasn't been featured on the cover of FIFA 13. Well Kaka, because many are wondering already has been in the menu of FIFA 12 and he isn't the same player as he used to be at AC Milan. Rooney has been featured on the cover for a few years in a row and Ronaldo well i think it's useless to say that he signed with Konami.
So (without starting a war here between Messi and Ronaldo fans) FIFA 13 already has the best football player on it's cover but will it succeed to be the best football game as well? We will see.
