    Recently it came to my attention that the new Fifa game on Xbox One and Xbox 360 sport a different color on the cover than it does on the PS3 and PS4 covers. 

     

    The US covers of Fifa 15 feature Clint Dempsey chasing Lionel Messi. But the Xbox One and Xbox 360 version is a bit different. Instead of the US red, white and blue, Dempsey is shown wearing the Xbox jersey US has worn before. 

     

    Do you think Microsoft and EA did this for extra ad placement? Do you find it unpatriotic? 

     

    Check the two covers below and tell us what you think:

    Team licensing was my first guess but then I thought about it more and it really makes no sense and is a bit ridiculous. Lol...

    I wouldn't say its unpatriotic, but just downright greedy. Which doesn't surprise me with Microsoft at this point.

    So putting a picture of a usa person on the front of a video game makes you patriotic. I think you all are forgeting the definition of patriotic

    Cool

    That's not what I'm saying. But intentionally replacing your country's colors with your brand for advertising purposes does seem a little shrewd and greedy.

    Messi is wearing his team colors instead of his National colors. It would make sense for Clint to be wearing his too. Although I wouldn't expect the ps4 to use that Jersey for obvious reasons. Either way I don't think it really matters.
