EA will be snipping the price of the FIFA 09 Live Seasons from Thursday to keep up with the reshuffling of the January football transfer window.
From 9am UK time all six individual leagues - Premier League (England), La Liga (Spain), Serie A (Italy), Ligue 1 (France), Bundesliga (Germany) and Premiera Division (Mexico) - will drop from 560 Microsoft Points (GBP 4.60 / EUR 6.72) to 420 MSP (GBP 3.57 / 5.04).
As a result, the price of the entire bundle will shrink from 1600 MSP (GBP 13.60 / EUR 19.20) to 1200 MSP (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40), according to Xbox Europe community bloke Graeme Boyd's blog. We're checking the PS3 situation now.
The Live Seasons keep tabs on performances of real-life football players and update the in-game player statistics accordingly. One free 2008/2009 subscription to a league of the player's choice is thrown in with FIFA 09, and there's usually fresh data every week or so.
There's no word on when the offer will end, although 31st January is probably a good guess.
All that's left is to wonder whether Kaka will really go to Man City for GBP 100 million and a wage of GBP 500,000 a week.
