EA: how to fix FIFA 12 game crashes

You can blame yesterday's patch.

EA has offered a workaround for FIFA 12 owners suffering game crashes after installing the 10th November patch on PS3 and Xbox 360.

This is apparently caused by mismatched data in the Creation Centre.

The solution: delete the Creation Centre content from your system and re-download it.
