Charges for FIFA 14 and UFC demos on Xbox One was a system error, says EA

Posted on July 4, 2014 AT 07:45am

Panic recently broke out across the Xbox community when Xbox One users discovered that EA was charging for previously free demos of FIFA 14 and EA Sports UFC. The publisher has now confirmed that this was the result of a system error.

The demos were listed with a $4.99/£3.99 charge on both the European and North America Xbox Games Store. An EA representative told Polygon that the charges were down to a ”error in the system,” and should now have been reverted back to free.

The EA Sports UFC demo was released on June 3, while the FIFA 14 demo released November 22.
