FIFA Street 3 game for the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS. It is the third game in the FIFA Street series created by EA Sports BIG.
The game’s emphasis is on arcade-style fun and street football style tricks rather than real-life simulation. The game features more than 250 players from 18 different international teams. Players are identified by unique moves and show off their signature style of play. This enables gamers to experience “all the style and attitude” that is characteristic of street football. Enhancing this stylistic form of play are the exotic locations and interactive environments. Gamers are immersed in a “hyper-real world where players run up walls, environments pulsate to the music, and surroundings explode to life with each goal or trick.”
It was developed under the EA Sports BIG division of EA Sports, which is also responsible for such titles as SSX, NBA Street, NFL Street, and the FIFA Street games. Electronic Arts confirmed that a third FIFA Street game was being developed for next-generation consoles to be released in 2008. A demo for FIFA Street 3 was released on 17 January 2008 on the Xbox Live marketplace for the Xbox 360 and on the PlayStation Store for thePlayStation 3. The cover features Brazilian star Ronaldinho, English star Peter Crouch, and Italian star Gennaro Gattuso. According to producer Joe Nickolls, these iconic players were chosen for the cover because they represent “three of the different types of players available in our game and we were able to exaggerate their qualities to really create larger-than-life-characters.” The different types of players in the game are categorized as Tricksters, Playmakers, Finishers, and Enforcers.
