These are the features cut from the last gen version of FIFA 16

A surprisingly short list.

EA Sports has posted on its official blog to explain the differences between the current gen versions of FIFA 16, and the versions releasing for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

No more Game Face fun for last gen players.

"Due to console limitations and available resources, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of FIFA 16 do not feature the same innovations and new modes that are available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC," it reads. "That means that the team has removed a number of elements on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3."

Thankfully, the list that follows of features excised from the last gen versions is short and fairly painless.

The Creation Centre, custom music and chants, the FIFA Interactive World Cup, GameFace and the secondary commentary option with Clyde Tyldesley and Andy Townsend will all be absent from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Match lobbies have also been removed. More confusingly, the blog post lists "In-game presentation with Jeff Stelling" as being removed from the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as well, so presumably that's not in the game at all. Poor Jeff.

Other than that, FIFA 16 will have all the teams and game modes, regardless of which console you own. Unless, of course, it's a Vita as there's no version for Sony's handheld at all this year.
